Why Pay So Much to Look Good When Acupuncture can Provide Much Better Results for Less?

A growing number of women in America are discovering firsthand the incredible advantages of cosmetic acupuncture for augmenting their faces and bodies, particularly their breasts. Yes, acupuncture treatments can indeed improve the shape and size of a woman’s breast.

Thanks to the internet, acupuncture for face enhancement and breast augmentation has caught the attention of women of various ages seeking more natural and safe ways to beautify themselves. It’s a holistic approach that attracts women who desire a surgery-free or chemical-free procedure that removes or lessens the signs of aging.

Cosmetic acupuncture is often referred to as face-lift acupuncture although it has few parallels with its surgical counterpart. The aim of cosmetic acupuncture is to boost the transport of oxygen, nutrients, and fluids to the breast and face tissue via the process of vasodilation or widening of blood vessels. The facial lines are reduced and toned as flow of blood to the tissues increases with a treatment of acupuncture. This helps minimize the damage from muscle tension and ultraviolet radiation, brightens the complexion, and brings a youthful countenance in the face and even the whole body.

Men Can Also Benefit from Cosmetic Acupuncture

These days, business men and actors who want to improve their looks are turning to natural cosmetic procedures such as cosmetic acupuncture to look more youthful and vital for public and private engagements, presentations and even dating service photographs.

How Much Does Cosmetic Acupuncture Cost?

The price of a cosmetic acupuncture procedure is a fraction of what you would pay for a conventional cosmetic enhancement procedure. The price for one session may range from $100 to $150. This is cheap compared to a facelift that costs $5000.

One other benefit of cosmetic acupuncture is that it stimulates the neurotransmitters on the face, which enables the body to naturally heal itself.

How Does Cosmetic Acupuncture Work?

There are three major skin layers of the face: the subcutaneous or bottom layer, the dermis or mid layer and the epidermis or outer layer.

The subcutaneous part of the skin (bottom layer) is composed of blood vessels, adipose tissue and collagen fibers. This region handles important functions like providing the shape to our facial features, and protecting the body by regulating temperature inside the body.

The dermis or mid layer of the skin is composed of nerves, blood vessels, elastic fibers and collagen. The dermis is the skin part that gives the skin its fullness and resilience. As a person ages, his/her blood vessels in the dermis usually tighten because of a range of factors. They may include tension due to stress, inflammation, injury, and poor nutrition. As the circulation of the blood slows down to the dermal region, one starts to be aware of skin changes notably the resilience, luster, moisture content of the skin. So, when a person, for example, experiences a taxing or terrible event, he/she may tend to look much older over night. The dermis is one of the regions of the skin where acupuncture treatment works at its maximum. It helps boost blood circulation by relaxing and dilating all the blood vessels of the body and face.

The epidermis is the outermost layer of the skin and it is composed of a combination of a waxy material known as keratin as well as dead and living cells. This protective layer is considerably thinner than the dermis. The epidermis can differ in depth depending on body location. It is extremely thin on the face. One can compare the epidermis to a car’s waxy coating that serves to protect the car’s body from abrasions, scratches, cracking, drying out, chemicals, and ultra violet radiation damage. When properly cared, the epidermis gives the complexion of the face a wonderful glow and luster.

One important aspect that you should understand is that the epidermis has no direct means of getting blood. This means that there are no blood vessels in this superficial layer. It instead gets its nutrition and fluids from the middle layer (dermis).

Now that we’ve discussed the important aspects of cosmetic acupuncture for the face, we will now talk about acupuncture to enhance the breasts.

Breast Enhancement Acupuncture

Breast enhancement, which is sometimes erroneously called breast enlargement, has been a hot topic in recent years in certain circles whose business is to discover new and promising cosmetic enhancement procedures. The interest in cosmetic acupuncture increased due to the inadvertent (or advertent) endorsement of it by popular Taiwanese actresses and models. There are women who go for cosmetic acupuncture for breast enhancement a few days before an occasion such as a public appearance, party or a wedding. This is because of acupuncture’s immediate and less invasive effects as well as its relatively low cost and minimal side effects. With surgery or implants, you many need a week to recover from these procedures; what’s more, they cost a lot financially.

Does beast enhancement acupuncture treatment provide the same results as implants?

The simple answer to that is no. Unlike implants, acupuncture will not give you an overnight increase in the size of your breast. What it does is it improves the perkiness, firmness and fullness of the breast. The effects of breast enhancement acupuncture are the same as facial acupuncture. Acupuncture points located around (not in the breast itself) the breast are treated with needles to boost the flow of blood to the breast.

What can one expect from an acupuncture breast enhancement procedure?

When you come in for acupuncture treatment for breast enhancement, you first need to be interviewed by the acupuncturist and be physically evaluated to determine if you are eligible for the treatment.

If you are qualified for treatment, your acupuncturist will then lay you on a table and the treatment will begin. Your breasts are draped with a clean cloth and your acupuncturist then inserts acupuncture needles into specific acupuncture points around the breast. The needles are then left inserted for half an hour to a full hour.

Normally, breast enhancement may require a dozen sessions of acupuncture treatment once each week combined with nutritional therapy. The type of acupuncture treatment given varies since each person’s physiology is unique. Also, the needs of the patient will determine the type of procedure to be used and the duration of the treatment.
