A More Natural Enhancement of Beauty Awaits Women Who Avail of Cosmetic Acupuncture

without comments

It is not a shock to learn that more and more women are turning to alternative treatments given the many dangers and risks related to cosmetic surgery. Anesthesia is always used in cosmetic surgery. A procedure can last for several hours and can leave the patient’s face all red, bruised, and swelling. Recovery time is long, lasting at least two weeks.

A much safer and superior alternative treatment to cosmetic surgery is cosmetic acupuncture. Cosmetic acupuncture entails zero risks and side effects aside, perhaps, from the chance of slight bruising. Cosmetic acupuncture is a lot different from a facelift procedure in that it does not produce instant results and its effects is much better than facelift. Unlike cosmetic surgery, cosmetic acupuncture does not involve the use of harsh chemicals or any cutting of the skin; it does produce results that are subtle and more noticeable over the course of time.

During a procedure, a qualified cosmetic acupuncturist will insert tiny thin needles into the skin near each frown line or wrinkle. The needles boost the flow of energy in the skin tissues of the face. It also helps relax the facial muscles allowing the flow of blood to increase in these tissues. The muscles also tighten which also tightens the skin lessening the sagging of the facial skin. The needles also generate the production of more collagen which helps remove fine lines and lift wrinkles. According to the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture, 90% of patients who have been treated with cosmetic acupuncture on the face experienced a general rejuvenation of the face. They had smaller circles under their eyes, improved skin tone and softer facial lines.

It is important to select a licensed acupuncturist who had extra training in cosmetic acupuncture in order to prevent accidents, injuries or infections from unsterilized needles. Cosmetic acupuncturists offer different rates and may also differ in the number of sessions needed for one specific plan of treatment.

Besides the obvious physical benefits cosmetic acupuncture provides, the treatment also gives positive effects on the patient that are experienced more in the mind. Cosmetic acupuncture can help overcome depression, anxiety, insomnia, and stress and a whole other range of modern issues. And regardless if the patient believes these extra benefits apply to them or not, they will definitely experience an improvement in their overall well-being when the appearance of their skin and face also improves.

As the acupuncturist in Cleveland inserts needles proximate to the body parts where a condition is felt, a cosmetic acupuncturist inserts tiny thin needles near or on the age lines of the face. The needles generate a neural response that gets energy and blood flowing to the areas that needs improvement. The muscles are reinvigorated and tighten up firming the skin in the process as the blood rushes in. The needles spur the development of new collagen cells which help lessen the crease line in the face. The result is a total facial rejuvenation that looks very natural and more attractive than face lift surgery.
