Many have heard time and time again that acupuncture is a miracle treatment that involves very little pain. However, we have also may have heard stories or seen pictures about very painful and miserable facelift procedures. So, visualizing a facelift procedure involving acupuncture, which actually is a real procedure, can be a very appealing. What person wouldn’t grab the opportunity to look years younger without needing to undergo a painful process and a long recovery time that’s associated with a traditional facelift procedure? Does this sound too good to be true? That’s probably because it is. But the fact is, there is also good news, so keep on reading.

In the truest sense of the word, an acupuncture facelift is not a facelift associated with Western medical procedures. Acupuncture facelift does not require stitches, acid peels, or incisions and it isn’t a treatment where you get instant results. The true name of this procedure is acupuncture facial rejuvenation despite the fact that a lot of high-end spas are advertising it as a facelift. Acupuncture facial rejuvenation in Edina is not the same as a facelift procedure and clients who think they are actually getting a facelift will end up disappointed. This type of acupuncture treatment is hundreds of years old and what it does is lessen the appearance of deeper wrinkles and erase fine lines. It’s beyond the treatment’s reach if you expect it to help make you look really young again (teen- or young adult-young).

Decades of exposure to the sun, various kinds of pollution and toxins, and the harsh environment has made your skin the way it is today and there is no easy way the damage they cause can be rectified very easily. Short of going through a radical facelift procedure, there’s really only so much you can reasonably expect from any procedure. Even with the best Botox injections and facelift surgery, celebrities don’t even look like themselves any more.

The term acupuncture facelift is not accepted by the American Cosmetic Acupuncture Association because of the false expectations the term raises in patients. There are so many good things cosmetic acupuncture can do for your skin, the one thing it can’t do however, is make you instantly look young once more. Besides the reduction of wrinkles, cosmetic acupuncture can help control weight gain, treat insomnia, boost energy, improve skin tone, decrease eye bags, and firm jowls. These are the real benefits to expect when you get an acupuncture facelift treatment.
