Your face will inevitably show signs of aging before the rest of your body has. Things like wrinkles, loose skin, furrows, and other skin imperfections have a diminishing effect on your appearance. They can also have an adverse effect on your self-esteem.
Aside from a variety of topical creams out there, the traditional treatment to correct facial aging is a face lift. Face lifts have been around for a long time and are an established cosmetic surgery procedure. However, they can be time-consuming and expensive. Some people just don't have the time for surgery and the prolonged recovery period. The one-time cost of it can also be prohibitive. That's why the latest trend in face lift procedures adds some old school flavor with the introduction of acupuncture face lifts.
Acupuncture is the ancient Taoist practice of modifying the energy pathways in the body with the insertion of needles in the skin. The life force of the body is thought to flow through fourteen different paths. Health ailments and signs of aging are believed to be the cause of energy disruptions in the body. By sticking needles into the skin, these energy paths can be modify these energy pathways and restore the body's delicate balance. Over time, the improvements can be dramatic. And there's no need for incisions, local anesthetics, or recovery.
An experienced acupuncturist can identify the root causes of facial aging. Wrinkles are supposedly caused by specific muscular movements, and can also be linked to imbalances elsewhere in the body. The acupuncturist will place needles into areas that lead to the formation of wrinkles in the face.
The cost of an acupuncture session is low compared to a cosmetic surgery. Usually a visit is no more than a hundred dollars. However, since you'll need to visit several times a week for a few months, the total prices can soar out of control and even surpass that of a cosmetic surgery.
These treatments are brief, but require visits several times a week. The entire treatment can go on like this for up to two months, depending on the specific patient's needs. Older patients with more signs of aging, for instance, will require more treatments over time to correct. Improvements are gradual and increase with each treatment.
Though the scientific validity of acupuncture is still under debate, with many medical professionals claiming that it is more like holistic medicine, the usefulness of acupuncture face lifts is uncertain. However, given that so many people have done it and been left satisfied, it's clear that acupuncture face lifts are here to stay.
