Most of us know someone who has undergone some type of cosmetic procedure to enhance their beauty. We get to a certain age and the facial expressions we have had our whole lives have left their marks or we’ve lost and gained weight so we have sagging skin, and the gravity from walking around on this planet begins to call our flesh downward. We may be accepting of growing older and the respect that we may receive for having lived a while and learned a few things, but when we look in the mirror we are astounded that we look older than we feel. Thus, people spend tens of thousands of dollars, not covered by their insurance, to alter their appearance. Did you know that the average facelift only lasts about six years? What about Botox®? Botox is a trade name for botulinum toxin A. In this way, Botox is related to botulism, which is a form of acute food poisoning caused by bacteria that grow in improperly canned foods.
So, how about an alternative, which costs less than out-of-pocket elective surgeries, is safe, gentle, effective, and helps your whole health as well? Facial rejuvenation acupuncture may be an option for you. This focus of acupuncture has been around since the 1200’s in China. It may shrink and help erase wrinkles, tone the musculature of the face and increase circulation and production of collagen. Needles are put in the face as well as in the body. The body points help with the organ systems that affect the face. So, in the process of enhancing your face, you can enhance your health.
The protocol is 12 weekly treatments. You should notice differences by the fourth or fifth treatment. After the 12 initial treatments, you come back once a month to maintain your revitalization. The treatments last about an hour and a half, they are relaxing as well as effective and you don’t have any side effects, pain or anything to heal from. There are no harmful chemicals or bacteria, or anesthesia to recuperate from. The only thing you have to lose is your wrinkles.
