ACUPUNCTURE: A FACE LIFT ALTERNATIVE

How to Look More Youthful without Going Under the Knife!

HOW ACUPUNCTURE WORKS

When the cosmetic acupuncture procedure is performed, tiny sterile needles are inserted at specific points on the face. (This is not painful but you may feel a slight tingling sensation.)  Various points connect to actions such as lymph drainage (to rid your body of toxins), collagen production and toning of muscles/increased elasticity.  Treatments last approximately one hour and you can go immediately back to your normal daily activities.  Results are usually noticeable after a few treatments though 10-15 treatments may be recommended to achieve the best possible results.

BENEFITS OF COSMETIC ACUPUNCTURE

Many people looking for a more refreshed, more youthful appearance like the thought of acupuncture versus injecting chemicals into their system or going under the knife, so to speak.  Fans of the acupuncture procedure find it relaxing on many levels and love the fact that it is much less expensive than cosmetic surgery.   Without the risks surgery brings, this procedure boasts no scars and no swelling to contend with, cosmetic acupuncture looks even more attractive.   Also there is no redness, as with peels or some other cosmetic facial treatments.

According to one website, the acupuncture treatment will:

  • increase the production of collagen

  • make skin look firmer and younger

  • diminish the appearance of deep wrinkles

  • entirely eliminate fine lines

  • improve facial muscle tone

  • reduce the appearance of double chin

  • lessen bags under the eyes and reduce drooping eyelids by improving fluid metabolism

If you are searching for more natural looking results and if you value a natural procedure that treats your mind, body and spirit (traditional acupuncture has been helpful for stress, insomnia, anxiety, depression, etc.), the acupuncture facelift might be perfect for you! It is also effective when used with treatments such as Botox, so you can successfully enjoy the benefits of both these treatments simultaneously.
