Cosmetic Acupuncture: The New and Non-Surgical Fountain of Youth

Inevitably, we all have to suffer through the physical affects of aging.  It happens to everyone: you become a little heavier, a little more tired during the littlest tasks, and your bones begin to ache. If there is one thing that we know affects people the most, it’s the wrinkles and marks aging leaves upon your skin because they are the most visible sign. There are many different treatments people look for to correct these wrinkles and marks; however there is one that sticks out in our mind as being the least invasive. Cosmetic acupuncture involves treating the parts of your body affected most by the aging processes. Go Acupuncture has the facts on how this new type of treatment works and whether or not you are a good candidate for it.

It’s Non-Surgical

Most people that seek out treatment against wrinkles and fine lines usually look to cosmetic surgery first. Another treatment against the sagging of skin from aging is Botox, which is mainly used in the facial region. These types of treatments are effective; however, the recovery process is longer than that of cosmetic acupuncture. Cosmetic acupuncture also requires no anesthesia and has fewer side-effects than that of Botox or a surgical procedure.

It’s Just as Effective

Some people are skeptical of trying cosmetic acupuncture as a way to treat the effects of aging. The way the procedure works is that the acupuncturists with use the needles on specific problem areas of the face to create collagen underneath the skin. This causes the skin to plump to its natural state and help to smooth the fine lines from the face. After 5-10 sessions, the patient can start to see results.

It’s more Cost Effective

The average face lift can cost anywhere from $7,000-$9,000. This is something that many people would have to save their money for an extended period of time, or be independently wealthy to have done. However, the cost of cosmetic acupuncturecan go anywhere from $125 to $1,000, depending on the doctor, location, and practice.  Whichever way you’d like to look at it, cosmetic acupuncture is the most “bang for your buck”, which having the lowest price, side effects and best results.

Moxibustion Techniques

Another key factor in practicing Japanese acupuncture is the use of moxa and moxibustion techniques regularly. In the moxibustion technique, the acupuncturist warms the skin before needle insertion with a plant called moxa. The moxa is set on fire and then the burning plant is placed near the parts of the skin where the needles will be inserted. Though this is not necessarily a specific practice to any form of acupuncture, there are certain Japanese acupuncture supplies you must need to fulfill this technique. All moxa and moxibustion tools are found within their respective section on our website.
