The Facelift vs. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture
Wrinkles happen. It’s inevitable. Our histories of emotion and our days spent basking in summer sunshine eventually begin to show on our faces. I’ve often admired the lines around an elder friend’s mouth and the creases at the corners of her eyes because I know the shadows there are evidence of a life well lived. They paint a face like a map of experience. However, now that I’m beginning to notice wrinkles of my own, now that I find myself scrutinizing my forehead in the bathroom mirror, watching the skin bunch as I raise and lower my eyebrows like a child discovering what emotions look like, I’m beginning to think differently about wrinkles. At least, about my own. I’ve done some smiling, and some sun-bathing and some serious thinking and I don’t care if it’s a map of a pretty okay life. I’m just not ready for it to show.
What is one to do? You can’t stop time. And what if you’re just not into cosmetic surgery when there are risks like bruising and necrosis involved? There’s also the matter of the high price to pay to have synthetic substances injected into you body. We aren’t even sure yet of all of the long-term risk of having such things inside of you, except of course that inevitable, plastic appearance.
Did you know that ancient and natural treatments like Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture can give your face and body a lift without the risk? By increasing the flow of qi in the body and face and stimulating production of collagen and elastin, the skin in naturally lifted. The skin clears and pores tighten. With weekly treatments you can experience a reduction of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots. Your face will be rejuvenated and your body will experience the positive side effects of acupuncture—a balancing of energy and an hour of deep relaxation. Your entire body will benefit, as cosmetic acupuncture is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine and therefore about treating the whole body, not just the face.
The recommended protocol for Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a series of ten 90 minute treatments, scheduled at least weekly. If you’re preparing for a big event, treatments can be collapsed into a shorter time frame with two or three visits each week. For optimum benefit there should not be more than one week between visits. After the series it is recommended to schedule follow-up treatments every 4-6 months to maintain your appearance.
