Try face-lift acupuncture treatment if you want to look good and don’t like to be injected with Botox or go under the knife.
Acupuncture Face-Lift Procedure
The acupuncturist will ask you several questions at your first visit the acupuncturist. These questions may, for example, be about how much water you drink and how many times a day you go to the bathroom. Along with diagnostic examinations, this will enable the practitioner to make an accurate diagnosis and come up with a proper individualized treatment for your needs.
The acupuncturist will next make you recline or lie down in a position you are comfortable with. Then a few needles may be stuck into acupoints along certain areas of your body. The needles help stimulate the circulation of blood and activate the sluggish organs into vitality. One the Qi (life energy) is strengthened by the needles, your acupuncturist will then initiate the needling of your facial tissue. Acupuncture needles are not the same as those used for injections and transfusions. They are finer and thinner and are gently placed into the skin along the parts of the body that need a little rejuvenation. Some patients may request to have their “smile lines” softened or perhaps tone down that small furrow in their brow. A mild electrical stimulation may sometimes be needed to enhance the needles’ effect just enough to enhance the new production of elastin and collagen in the problem area.
The course of the treatment may differ from person to person although most patients say that they feel an overall sense of vitality in the face, which is in accordance with the treatment’s goal: facial rejuvenation. Besides this, there is a tangible diminution of those ugly fine lines without the patient ever experiencing the dangers and nasty side effects of chemical injections and surgery.
Reduction of Cellulite
An ideal traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) cosmetic treatment to eradicate or lessen undesirable cellulite is cupping. This inexpensive procedure is a much better alternative to cellulite creams and chemical injections that your cosmetic physician is wont to recommend.
Cellulite Reduction Procedure
Cupping has been traditionally used by TCM practitioners in their everyday practice for relieving backaches, reducing headaches, and preventing the flu and colds. As the benefits of this treatment are being known by more and more patients, other novel applications for this safe and simple procedure are being developed.
Regular cupping treatment can safely and quickly promote metabolic waste elimination through the lymphatic system at substantially less cost and time than chemical injections, topical creams, and endermologie. With just a single or a couple of treatments, one can expect a smoother skin. Frequency and duration of treatment is determined by the patient’s needs.
