For centuries cosmetic treatments have been used to help us roll back the years and make the best of our skin as we get older. Today we have never before had as much choice available to change how we look, from fillers and peels to going under the knife for expensive and risky cosmetic surgery, and as the pressure increases on both women and men to look young, fresh and vibrant, the cosmetic surgery industry is booming. However, if you want to avoid the very real risk associated with surgery, Botox and fillers and save yourself some hard cash, facial enhancement acupuncture or jade face elevating might be for you.
The effects of these treatments are more gradual and less dynamic, but still noticeable and completely safe. So how does it work and what does it do?
Fine lines and wrinkles
- Facial enhancement acupuncture greatly helps to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, by causing a tiny winy ‘trauma’ in the wrinkle with needles finer then hair. This stimulates the production of collagen which naturally boosts the skin and decreases the appearance of the lines.
- Increasingly we spend more time inside and our skin is starved of sunlight and Vitamin D, excessive make-up can also suppress the skins function causing a dull, lifeless, lackluster complexion. Acupuncture can help to strengthen and stimulate epidermis the result being a more even and brighter complexion.
Hanging, puffy skin
- As we age the connective tissue becomes loose and causes the skin to sag, especially in the jowl, neck and upper eyelid areas. Acupuncture “face-lift” lifts the skin naturally and allows the connective tissue to adhere to the muscles resulting in a tauter look; the no needle Jade Face Elevating treatment is also great for this.
We only have one face and we have to live with it, but acupuncture has some fantastic side effects; a more balanced inner you which not only makes you feel good inside, but also maximizes your chances of looking healthy, energized, rejuvenated, revitalized and relaxed.
