What do Madonna, Cher and Gwyneth Paltrow all have in common? Well, according to eDiets these celebs are all fans of Acupuncture facial rejuvenation. Yep, it is alternative medicine meets cosmetic surgery.
Popular in the U.S. for the last twenty years, Chinese women have been using acupuncture to keep looking fresh and sensual since 960 AD. One element of the acupuncture philosophy is to restore balance and imbalances in the organs or muscles can create wrinkles on the face. So needles are placed where imbalances occur and needles are not just used on the face. If the spleen is out of whack needles will be inserted in the spleen area or meridian (energy line). Licensed acupuncturists know how to read the body, and ones specializing in "facial rejuvenation" will examine your body and identify the root cause of your wrinkles.
It is believed for the treatments to work, they need to occur on a weekly or bi weekly basis, for several weeks. A typical acupuncture visit can be anywhere from $50- $75. The side affects are generally improved energy (a bonus) and the risk factors are nil when compared to invasive, plastic surgery.
Sounds interesting to me. Would you be willing to give acupuncture facial rejuvenation a try? Tell me in the comments section below.
