Aging reduces your skin’s elasticity, making it thinner, duller, and wrinkle prone. The skin begins to sag, drooping your eyelids and jowls and making you look haggard. Time-tested, less invasive, pocket-friendly acupuncture treatment can reverse the aging process. It involves multiple sessions that allows for careful monitoring of your skin as it heals and reacts to the treatment.
Who doesn’t like to look good and youthful? It makes us feel good! However, most of us are not blessed with the perfect genes for perfect skin. Aging takes its natural course and the changes manifest in different ways for different folks – both externally and internally.
The most visible of all age-related changes is what happens to our skin in general – facial skin and appearance in particular. Skin is after all our first line of defense.
Problems Affecting Our Skin
The skin is constantly exposed to the ravages of the sun, other climatic conditions, microbial infections, cuts, burns and other injuries. It works hard 24/7 to protect the body.
As we age, the elasticity of skin reduces and it becomes drier or thinner. Fine lines start to become more visible. Some of these fine lines are marked by Crow’s feet, deepening smile lines, forehead furrows, frown lines and lip lines.
Other kinds of facial characteristics include droopy eyelids, saggy jowls or a complexion that gradually diminishes in vibrancy and vitality.
How Acupuncture Can Help
While these problems affecting skin with age are causes for concern, there is help! In China, acupuncture has been used for centuries for improving facial health.
- Acupuncture provides a more holistic way of maintaining and improving facial appearance. It is much better than other options like Botox or highly invasive and expensive surgical procedures.
- Facial acupuncture is done as a series of treatments and results in gradual improvement, allowing for monitoring of changes and making adjustments as the series progresses.
Unlike options that merely work on the surface, acupuncture provides a way that also works internally while it greatly improves external appearance.
I like to call it beauty from the inside out!
Will be sharing more details about the process in future posts. Stay tuned!
