When Botox and other injectables first hit the anti-aging scene, consumers thought they had found easy access to a scalpel-free fountain of youth. While these injectables are certainly less invasive than going under the knife, increased use often reveals a less than natural appearance, as well as a number of potential risks including swelling and bruising near the injection site, droopy lids, brows and smiles, as well as vision problems and breathing difficulties. For many, it can all seem a bit much to look a little younger temporarily.
Fortunately, there are safer, more natural ways to regain and maintain a youthful appearance that have significant results without injections, surgery or harsh chemicals and that involve no risks or downtime.
Also called the “Acupuncture Facelift,” the Acu-lift facial is a revitalization process based on the Chinese healing art of acupuncture that involves the insertion of tiny, hair-like needles into the face or other areas of the body to diminish many of the traditional signs of aging. Fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, sagging skin, and cellulite can all be addressed with this painless, non-surgical procedure. Through a course of several treatments, skin texture and appearance is improved in the same way it would be through more abrasive treatments like laser resurfacing, dermabrasion, and chemical peel treatments, but without the redness and peeling often associated those treatments.
Needle-free alternatives include micro-current facials that use low-level electrical stimulation and customized color light therapy to lift and tone facial muscles and reduce wrinkles. Micro-current facials can be infused with Jade-E Elastin or Collagen gel to not only dramatically improve the appearance of the face, but contribute to overall wellness as well. Other add-ons, such as body brushing, paraffin hand therapy, and scalp, hand and foot massage contribute to the spa-like experience.
Unlike Botox and cosmetic surgery, Acu-lift and micro-current facials don’t involve injections, scraping or squeezing of delicate facial tissues, instead relying on gentle wands stroked over the skin for a painless and relaxing facial rejuvenation experience. The number of sessions required for these therapies depends on the current condition of each client’s skin, as well as the desired outcome. A brief consultation can help determine the non-surgical facial rejuvenation solution that is best for you.
Acu-lift facials and Jade-E micro-current facial rejuvenation therapies improve the muscle tone of your face and neck by increasing the body’s natural collagen and elastin production — processes that decrease as we age and contribute to an older appearance. These options, when combined with a quality natural skincare regimen, and careful monitoring of sun exposure, diet, stress, sleep, and lifestyle choices offer more natural methods of turning back the clock while contributing to overall health and wellness.
