Did you know that acupuncture (from Latin: acus “needle” and pungere “prick”) has been practiced as early as the Stone Age with sharpened stones? It’s hard to imagine that anyone volunteered for that!
Today we’re fortunate enough to not only have the benefit of super-fine needles that you barely feel being placed on the skin- but we can get a face lift out of it too!
I’ve experienced this treatment once myself and, let’s face it, needles are not something that most people look forward to. But once I got over the thought of the needles and actually had a treatment, I was pleasantly suprised by the results.
One thing that really stood out for me with this treatment was how relaxed and softened my face looked and felt. It’s amazing how much tension we hold in our face through repetitive expression and the general stress of everyday life. For me, this stress shows up in the form of a dull complexion and the deepening of the laugh lines around my mouth. I’ve also been noticing fine lines popping up in between my brows from frowning. Cosmetic Acupuncture can address all of these concerns and more.
I know I’m not alone in seeking out ways to prevent these signs of aging without having to inject botox or spends thousands of dollars on laser treatments. However, the reality is that if you are looking for a more natural approach, it takes a commitment to frequent treatments which can be a hard to fit into a busy lifestyle. A recommended course of treatments for Cosmetic Acupuncture is 12 sessions with regular follow up treatments to maintain results. The positive spin to this possible negative, is that there are little to no side effects and a slew of side benefits to this ancient practice.
I would love to hear feed back from anyone who’s benefited from Cosmetic Acupuncture. Please post your comments!
