The Advantages of Choosing Cosmetic Acupuncture Over Surgery or Botox

The natural phenomenon that was once your youthful attractive looking face and skin starts to degenerate with time. Besides the aging process, toxins, pollution, and stress can take a toll on your face and skin causing it to lose elasticity, develop dark spots, wrinkles and other unwanted aging effects. Although this is an unavoidable fact of life, it sometimes can occur in an early age. Modern medicine has come up with a thousand ways to make you look young again but when it comes to their face people will always choose some form of natural treatment that has few or no side effects.

One such treatment is cosmetic acupuncture, a completely natural facial and skin therapy that does not utilize any harmful medicines. Cosmetic acupuncture, also called rejuvenation of the face or acupuncture facelift involves the insertion of thin solid needles into specific pressure points in the body. The points called acupoints are found along the energy channels or meridians that spread throughout the body. The needles are inserted into the meridians to stimulate and move blood and chi (energy) into the facial bones and tissues. A lot of these meridians are located on the chin, cheeks, forehead, ears, etc.

The insertion of the needles into the facial muscles helps clear the obstructions that have developed in the meridians enhancing the flow of nutrients, oxygen, and blood in the body. The treatment does not cause pain although a slight tingling sensation may be felt when the needles are inserted. The treatment helps increase muscle tone, eliminates wrinkles, tightens loose skin, and provides the person with a healthy complexion. The needles are inserted superficially into the skin stimulating the production of collagen fiber that enhances the elasticity of the skin making the skin look supple, healthy, vibrant, and younger looking. Besides that, it also helps in alleviating pain in the muscles of the face by helping relax the tense and stiff muscles.

Aside from cosmetic acupuncture many other treatments are available that are considered effective. These procedures may give the same outcomes as cosmetic acupuncture; however, they do have some major after effects. One such procedure is Surgical Facelift which is very expensive and usually comes with medical complications such as skin scars and infection. Botox is one other treatment and it involves the injection of toxins into the face to prevent muscle contraction. Although it can lessen wrinkles, Botox can make your face dull and appear paralyzed; acupuncture, on the other hand, eliminates wrinkles by flattening wrinkles and has no adverse effect whatsoever.
