Cosmetic acupuncture increases the circulation in your skin. Your circulation tends to get a little sluggish as you age. Cosmetic acupuncture brings all those nutrient goodies like collagen and elastin back to where you want it—in your face and neck.
The increased circulation translates into better skin tone, fewer fine lines, and even some lift around sagging jowls and baggy eyes.
It’s safe. No side effects here, other than the occasional bruise, which heals in less than a week. You don’t have to worry about scarring, lumps, or botched procedures.
Your health benefits and relaxation from the sessions, too. During a cosmetic acupuncture treatment, we do a general treatment to balance the body. It’s relaxing. It may seem unlikely that an acupuncture treatment is relaxing, but the truth is that acupuncture increases the release of endorphins, those feel-good chemicals in your brain. This means that from the time you’re on the table for hours, and sometime days after your treatment, you’ll feel mellow, rested, and less stressed.
Cosmetic acupuncture is chemical-free. There are no acid peels, Botox, or injectable fillers involved in the process.
You’ll spend less money on cosmetic acupuncture than if you go the plastic surgery or injectable route.
The effects of cosmetic acupuncture can last years with just minor tune ups every six months or so.
There is no down time with cosmetic acupuncture. You can have a treatment at lunch and head back to work glowing and relaxed.
