Healthy, young-looking skin at all ages is a trend that is sweeping the globe. Many result to harsh surgical procedures such as Botox injections and even plastic surgery. But before you fork over the big bucks for expensive options such as Botox treatments, plastic surgery, and high dollar anti-aging creams, consider a more affordable and non-surgical alternative: facial rejuvenation acupuncture. Now, however, people are opting to go under the needle instead of going under the knife.
A practice whose origins date back all the way to 960-1279 A.D., acupuncture (for the purpose of improving beauty) has evolved into a viable, natural Botox alternative. It is used as a means to reducing fine lines, wrinkles and even acne. Acupuncture can reduce signs of aging by strengthening and stimulating the circulation of Qi within the meridian pathways, especially those of the face.
As we age it becomes more difficult for Qi to flow upwards to “lift” the face and nourish the skin. This leads to inadequate muscle tone and over time, wrinkles and sagging skin. There are a variety of things that can contribute to this including poor diet, digestion, circulation, lifestyle habits or emotional and environmental stresses.
By promoting a healthy flow of Qi within the pathways of the face, facial rejuvenation acupuncture is able to oppose these various factors and stimulate blood flow, collagen production, and elasticity of the skin in the face, neck, and jaw areas.
Facial rejuvenation acupuncture has a wide range of other benefits such as:
• Decreased puffiness in the face
• Hormone balancing for acne caused by hormone imbalances
• Tightening of pores
• Moistening of skin due to the increased blood flow circulation
• Less visible under eye dark circles
• Reduction of age spots and deep wrinkles
• Reduction of hair loss
• Cellulite treatment
• Stretch mark removal
Facial rejuvenation acupuncture treatments are virtually painless and appointments are only one hour long, a stark contrast to Botox treatments and cosmetic surgery. Acupuncture is a natural, holistic practice that requires no down time or toxic chemicals. Even after a few short treatments, facial rejuvenation acupuncture can remove anywhere from 5-15 years from the face. Fine lines may be entirely eliminated, deeper wrinkles faded, bags under the eyes reduced, droopy eyelids lifted, and double chins minimized.
Most courses of treatment consist of 10-12 bi-weekly or tri-weekly appointments, depending on condition and lifestyle prior to receiving the treatment. With acupuncture maintenance sessions and a healthy diet, results can last for years.
Facial rejuvenation acupuncture is becoming the new face of cosmetic procedures. A chemical-free, natural, and painless way to promote vibrant, youthful skin at all ages. So before going under the very expensive knife, consider going under the acupuncture needle instead.
