We’re all in the corner of wanting to fight the effects of aging as long as we can, but the truth of the matter is, aging is a natural, biological process no matter how frowned upon and unaccepted it is in our culture.
There is a difference between aging and aging well. There are factors that cause premature aging such as spending too much time in the sun, smoking, inactivity, and not eating healthy foods. On the other hand, when you cultivate healthy lifestyle practices early on, your body is nourished and it thanks you for it.
Cosmetic acupuncture is an anti-aging method to incorporate to your health and wellness arsenal. It offers a myriad of benefits that not only treat fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin, it can address other issues that might be causing your face to appear dull and unrefreshed.
Cosmetic acupuncture is a safe, chemical-free, and natural alternative to Botox where the acupuncturist places hair-thin needles into specific acupuncture points to stimulate circulation that spawns collagen and elastin production to plump and revitalize the skin.
Why does facial rejuvenation acupuncture work?
It seems odd or maybe even counterintuitive that tiny needles can be as effective as Botox, but Chinese Medicine works on a deeper level. When a person is experiencing symptoms, whether on their face or not, it indicates disharmony somewhere else in their body. The digestive system is widely known for being related to the face. An acupuncturist can then treat you accordingly — your digestive system and acutely on your face. Plainly put, acupuncture treats the whole person. Botox, on the other hand, works to relax the muscles in your face to essentially paralyze the muscles to produce a smooth texture. With Botox, there are also many more side effects and it’s just treating the symptom. What if you could feel and look better? Cosmetic acupuncture can do this!
