Ever since the first wine spa opened in Bordeaux in…
Lately it seems like plastic surgery is the new blonde. Could it be the imagination at work, or does it seem that even those who have sworn their loyalty to the totally natural skincare camp seem to have had a nip here, a tuck there? With even the most integral of celebrities succumbing to the seduction of the facelift, more and more of the pedestrian population become desperate to find an easier more accessible alternative. If you are still one of those who does not want to go under the needle, there is a skin treatment that utilizes the needle slightly differently, but may be just as beneficial. Here is some news about the acupuncture facial.
Why the Acupuncture Facial?
While the facelift is strictly surgical, the acupuncture facial offers a more holistic approach to skincare. It is aimed not only at improving the skin’s appearance, but also at bringing wellness to the entire body. Acupuncture treats not only signs of aging, but can also improve skin conditions including rosacea, acne, and facial eczema. It has even shown to effectively treat and, with repeated applications, even eliminate everything from deep wrinkles, puffy eyes, and sagging skin.
The skin is often seen as a fingerprint of our body’s health. Acupuncture treats not only the health of your face, but he health of your mind and body. Imbalances in the body and signs of stress often play out in the skin’s complexion. Skin can become dull, and dark circles, wrinkles and fine lines can form. Acupuncture targets these symptoms as well as their underlying causes, improving the appearance of your skin while banishing signs of stress and restoring balance to your body.
What is the Facial like?
Many of us may be understandable uneasy about any procedure incorporating the use of needles, but cosmetic acupuncture is focused on relaxation, and there is no reason to expect unpleasant sensations. The procedure begins with a Bamboo Micro Polish Exfoliating cleanse to clear skin and leave it supple. It is followed by the acupuncture portion, which will simple require you to lay back while your face is energized and restored to a healthy balance. The massage is the final step. This 15 minute technique incorporates Japanese and Indian massage styles to relax facial muscles and boost circulation to the skin.
Why It Works
As the body ages, imbalances occur in the body. Cosmetic Acupuncture addresses these imbalances by inserting needles into specific points in the body and face to stimulate the moment of blood, fluids and nutrients to muscles, providing them with new life and nourishment.
Cosmetic acupuncture is also effective at treating specific skin issues. Concerns such as deep wrinkles, skin discoloration, or scarring require a direct, more focused approach. Deep wrinkles are treated with the insertion of tiny needles along the line of the wrinkle. These Intra dermal needles create minute injuries that triggers the skin’s natural healing ability, introducing collagen and elastin into the area. As the new collagen builds with each recurring facial, the wrinkles diminishes, and the skin becomes smoother and younger looking.
