Okay, let’s face it, the fact is every day each of us gets slightly older. As experience teaches us this is both a good and a bad thing. While we gain wisdom, we lose some of our youth and with that some of our youthful beauty.
For centuries acupuncture has been used to treat a multitude of conditions including growing old gracefully. In order to keep women (and some men) looking as great as they feel acupuncturists can treat the face. The treatments include points to balance and enhance the entire health of the body as well as local points on the face to work on “problem” areas. Fine lines disappear while deeper wrinkles soften. The skin becomes more elastic to fend off dreaded sagging.
Are the results like plastic surgery? No. Will people ask you what you are doing? Yes! Acupuncture is a safe, natural, gentle way of rejuvenating the face and allowing you to look as good as you feel without surgery or drastic changes in your appearance. It also has the positive side effect of making you feel more relaxed, balanced and rested.
For best results in the community acupuncture setting I would recommend doing a series of ten treatments spaced out at one per week. It is also best if you focus on one area of the face for those ten treatments and then do subsequent treatments for any other areas you would like to address. You will notice results after about four treatments and those results will increase as you continue your series. Maintainance of one treatment per month or every other month is suggested.
