The new year is a great time to make new commitments to yourself about your career, your personal goals or your family. It’s also a good time to spend a little extra effort making sure you do something to make yourself feel good and confident. Did you know that having a few acupuncture treatments could go a long way toward making you look younger and feel healthier? In fact, cosmetic acupuncture could be the perfect way to jumpstart your 2017.
Acupuncture works by targeting specific places on your body, promoting healthy cell regrowth and regeneration in that area. Our facial rejuvenation and cosmetic acupuncture treatments are a great alternative for people who are looking for a holistic and chemical-free approach to looking younger, while also improving your overall health.
Acupuncture, unlike Botox and plastic surgery, is safe, natural and effective, and you won’t run the risk of post-treatment complications or infections. Your treatment will begin with a certified acupuncturist who will identify specific points on your face, scalp and along your hairline to lift and firm your skin. These will be the areas targeted by the acupuncture treatment, and will be stimulated by inserting tiny intradermal needles within wrinkles and fine lines.
The needles used in acupuncture simulate a microtrauma, which spurs elastin and collagen production. Your acupuncturist may also use specific essential oils, targeted at relieving stress and reducing the appearance of fine lines, in conjunction with acupuncture to help achieve an even more impactful result. Most patients see results after about four to six sessions, though we recommend sitting for 12 sessions to make sure that the results are lasting and impactful.
If you’ve been interested in this treatment, but never given it a try in the past, make the commitment to yourself in 2017 that you’ll spend a little extra time to take care of yourself. Feeling and looking younger and more confident can go a long way towards helping you reach your New Year’s resolution, no matter what it is.
