Origin of MTS
Seven Star Needle (Plum-Blossom needle)
The application of ‘plum-blossom’ needle therapy has a history of more than 1000 years. The ancients gave the name of ‘plum-blossom’ needle to the five needles bound together like a plum-blossom and ‘seven-star’ needle to the bundle of seven needles. It can release of congestion and pain in the superficial muscle. It is also known as ‘dermal needling’. Generally, it is called ‘plum-blossom’ needling or “seven star needling”. Use in Cosmetic Acupuncture
The dermal hammer can help reduce any unwanted facial markings, such as wrinkles, scars, open pores, visible blood vessels or discolorations. If used in conjunction with a course of acupuncture in non-surgical face lifts, the results are enhanced.
It greatly increases the flow of blood to the area and also enhances collagen production in wrinkle reduction.
How does it help?
It is especially effective for chronic aching in the muscles that does not respond to massage or acupuncture.
Other uses are for post stroke paralysis, cerebral palsy and hair loss.
It can assist in hair loss through tapping your scalp with a 7-star or plum blossom needle which stimulates blood flow to your scalp.

Side effect of MTS
The medical community generally considers micro-needling to be safe and effective, but there are still some risks.
The primary risk is skin irritation after the procedure. Other side effects could include:
- Discomfort at the site
- Flaking of the skin
Bleeding is an uncommon reaction to micro-needling, though it may be more likely to occur after a deeper treatment.
Bleeding may also be more of a risk for people who have bleeding disorders or who are taking blood-thinning medications. It is important to disclose this information to a doctor before receiving this treatment.
There is also a risk of more serious side effects, including:
- Skin pigment changes
- Reaction to typical medications used during treatment
Some devices involve additional risks. Those that use energy or heat can increase the likelihood of burns.
Finally, some people are not candidates for micro-needling treatment, including those with:
- an active skin infection
- active acne
- keloid scarring
- an unstable skin type
Seeing a dermatologist or medical skin care professional who is experienced in these types of procedures will help minimize the risks.
