The Advantages of Cosmetic Acupuncture New York

without comments

Entropy affects everyone in the course of time.  After several decades, a once looking youthful and beautiful face loses its attractiveness and degenerates.  Though aging (or entropy) is a major factor for this various toxins, pollution and stress also play their part in the loss of a person’s attractive, youthful looking appearance.  These factors cause early aging, loose skin, dark spots, wrinkles, sagging laugh lines and sagging facial muscles.  Modern conventional treatments provide answers to these conditions but most people would prefer natural treatment methods when it comes to facial care and enhancing to avoid any regrettable side effects that affect the face.

Fortunately for these people seeking natural treatment, cosmetic acupuncture New York is one safe, natural and quite effective treatment for looking good that does not use any type of medication in its procedure.  This type of acupuncture is also known as facial rejuvenation or acupuncture facelift.  Acupuncture is based on the theory that there are points in the body called acupuncture points where needles inserted there can produce positive and beneficial results such as a better looking and healthier skin.  Acupuncture points lie along energy channels called meridians which carry vital life force known as chi throughout the body.  Chi is what the body needs to live, grow, be strong and be healthy.  Cosmetic acupuncture needles stimulate the meridians which carry blood and energy to the soft tissues and bones in the face.  Meridians in the face are inserted with needles to stimulate these effects.

The needles help remove any energy blockages in the meridians which disrupt the flow of energy, oxygen, blood and vital nutrients that make the skin healthy.  Under a licensed, well-trained acupuncturist, there should be no pain felt when the needles are inserted into the skin; instead a tingling sensation or no sensation at all should be felt when needles are inserted. The needles increase muscle tone, which tightens the loose skin removing the facial wrinkles and giving the facial skin a healthy complexion.  The needles also stimulate the production and release of collagen to enhance skin elasticity and help give the skin a younger looking look.  The needles also help in alleviating pain in the facial muscles and improve the range of motion of tensed and stiff muscles.

As mentioned, cosmetic acupuncture improves blood circulation, particularly to the face thus giving the face a much healthier glow.  It also can treat skin conditions such as pimples, acne and facial dark spots.  Some conventional cosmetic techniques such as a surgical facelift can cost so much money that most people can hardly afford it.  Cosmetic acupuncture, on the other hand probably costs a fraction of the amount spent on one cycle of Botox or cosmetic surgery.  Besides there are very few minimal risks of injuries with acupuncture compared to the very painful and invasive procedures of both cosmetic surgery and Botox.
