Smoothing Out the Lines with Cosmetic Acupuncture
Cosmetic acupuncture is a good alternative for women who don't want the side effects associated with a surgical facelift.
Acupuncture, a form of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), is designed to free up Chi, or energy. When fine needles are applied to the body and face, production of collagen and elastin may be stimulated, and skin is "plumped up."
By addressing other parts of the body in addition to the face, acupuncture assists the body's ability to support the "facelift."
Research shows after a series of 10 treatments (twice a week for five weeks), skin becomes more delicate and fair, and there are fewer wrinkles. Other benefits include reducing deep lines, decreasing sagginess, lifting droopy eyelids, and reducing age spots.
The effectiveness of a treatment depends on what you're starting with.
The recommended course of treatment is 12 to 16 weeks, with monthly maintenance treatments after that.
Keep in mind cosmetic acupuncture is a method to retrain your body, it is not a cure-all. How you live your life will impact body and appearance. We always encourage a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
