There are many anti-aging procedures. However, people are discovering a downside to plastic surgery, laser treatments, chemical peels and Botox injections. The side effects include scarring, chronic bruising, nerve damage and lengthy recovery periods. A better option is Cosmetic Acupuncture for facial rejuvenation. It is safer, much less expensive, much less painful, and has virtually no side effects or recovery time. People will complete their treatments feeling refreshed and looking younger with smoother complexions and less sagging.
The principle of facial rejuvenation Cosmetic Acupuncture is that it rebalances the bodyʼs motivating energy or “Qi” (pronounced “chee”). As we mature, the amount of Qi and blood in the skin and underlying facial muscles slowly begins to decrease, causing a loss of nourishment, support and moisture.
Focusing on the acupuncture points in the face will increase the flow of blood and energy to the skin in that area. The needles, which are as thin as a human hair, are inserted very shallowly. They bring collagen and elastin to the area, causing the skin to become more supple, elastic and firm. This virtually pain-free process hydrates and boosts the skinʼs supply of nutrients and oxygen, thus decreasing wrinkles and blemishes. It also tones the underlying facial muscles.
