Facial Biopuncture and Acupuncture New York

without comments

Few people are aware that acupuncture New York can actually make people look younger.  Good news is that many Americans are discovering acupuncture’s effectiveness in removing facial wrinkles in a relatively painless and medication-free manner.  Facial acupuncture really takes away sagging eyes, wrinkles and facial lines and this is just to mention a few benefits of this type of acupuncture.

Acupuncture is widely known in the United States as a very powerful and effective analgesic used for many types of pain.  In China, where it originated, acupuncture has been used for thousands of years as a rejuvenation therapy. Acupuncture helps make the skin supple and healthy.  Some researches have observed that regular acupuncture treatments of the skin improve blood flow and chi to the skin cells.  This helps in slowing down skin cell entropy and may sometimes even reverse the aging process.

Acupuncture may compete with artificial procedures such as cosmetic surgery, botox and dermabrasion to name a few.  Botox can lead to a syndrome called “frozen face” of which a number of celebrities often suffer from.  Cosmetic surgery has a substantial health and aesthetic risk and dermabrasion is a painful invasive way to look good.  The only known way to look splendid without needing to undergo the ordeal of these artificial procedures and to be on the natural and safe side is with facial acupuncture.

Facial acupuncture in the United States has two approaches:

1.    Facial Biopuncture – This is the most popular form of facial acupuncture.  The hydration of the face is done and the acupuncture needles stimulate collagen production to optimize the nourishment and the oxygenation of the facial skin.  This procedure removes the external features of facial lines.  Moreover, biopuncture enhances self-healing through homeopathic injection therapy at acupoints.
2.     Facial acupuncture – Hair thin needles that are inserted on the face to remove or lessen wrinkles.  This procedure smoothes out the wrinkles and makes the face look more radiant and naturally younger looking in contrast to botox, which makes the face of the patient look rigid.

These two treatments do not use any harmful chemicals that dermabrasion and Botox use so the effect to the skin of these types of facial acupuncture is a more natural and healthier looking skin.

Facial acupuncture and biopuncture treatment usually lasts an hour and besides the needles, a facial massage is also given the patient.  Additional benefits that can be realized are some skin damages can also be healed with these types of acupuncture.  The duration of the treatment will depend on the health of the patient’s skin.

The best thing about these types of acupuncture is that the skin is not only the part of the body that benefits but the whole body as well.  Any type of acupuncture helps restore the balance of energy in the body.
