One more benefit that acupuncture can proudly boast of is its use as an anti aging treatment. Acupuncture can assist with the slow down of age or even reverse it. Yes, it may be difficult to believe that acupuncture can really treat aging. This type of acupuncture is called cosmetic acupuncture. It was and is still used today by the men and women of China for enhancement of physical feature and health. This type of cosmetic enhancement, unlike Botox, liposuction and cosmetic surgery does not only aesthetically improve the face or body; it also improves the well-being of the person. Acupuncture can stimulate the production and release of collagen in the body. Collagen helps improve the skin by reducing the lines and wrinkles in the face associated with aging. Acupuncture and collagen also lifts and tightens muscle tissue in a natural way enabling one to look and feel much younger.
A person feels old when his body functions are not working efficiently as they used to. Acupuncture can revitalize these body systems by allowing energy and more blood to circulate in areas that are undernourished due to general body entropy. These body parts now nourished enough will once again function efficiently giving the individual added energy and strength. The improved flow of blood causes the skin to look healthy and supple. Therefore, the rejuvenation of the body really starts within and manifests without. There are no such benefits from cosmetic surgery, which makes cosmetic acupuncture superior in substance than the rest of the Western modes of cosmetic enhancement.
Another advantage of cosmetic acupuncture from all other cosmetic treatments is the cost. Botox, liposuction and cosmetic surgery costs a fortune compared to the relative economy of cosmetic acupuncture. Another plus for cosmetic acupuncture is its less invasive approach to treatment compared to the rather painful procedures of Botox, liposuction etc. In terms of recuperation, it takes a small amount of time to recuperate from cosmetic acupuncture than the other procedures. Finally, there are negligible risks with cosmetic acupuncture compared to the potentially fatal risk of liposuction and the risky procedures of cosmetic surgery and Botox. To summarize, cosmetic surgery, is less risky, non-invasive and a cheap way to improve one’s looks.
The typical number of treatment sessions for cosmetic acupuncture is twelve and deals with acupuncture on the face and body. Herbal treatments are also typically used in combination with cosmetic acupuncture. Before treatment, the acupuncturist would need to give the patient a thorough medical examination and review of the patient’s medical history.
One cannot lose with cosmetic acupuncture. Besides looking naturally younger than one’s age, the mind and body benefit greatly. One feels healthy and good-looking after cosmetic acupuncture and the positive change is not only noticeable in the face, but also in terms of the added energy and joy one can see from someone who has had cosmetic acupuncture.
