Forever Youthful Skincare Secret Revealed!

November 1, 2022

A natural alternative to fillers and Botox!!! Cosmetic acupuncture can help reduce wrinkles by encouraging collagen and elastin production. It can also improve microcirculation that helps with puffiness and discolouration issues. It is also used in the treatment of acne and breakouts, at any age. Cosmetic acupuncture can significantly help with acne-prone skin by improving the detoxification skin process as well as improving the immunity of the skin against bacteria. 

Why not choose fillers or botox instead?

Dermal filler use carries hazards, just like any other medical procedure. The majority of adverse reactions noted during clinical trials and post-market monitoring start soon after injection and disappear within a few weeks. Sometimes, adverse effects don’t show up until weeks, months, or even years later.

Common risks include:

  • Bruising
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Pain
  • Tenderness
  • Itching
  • Rash
  • Difficulty in performing activities (only observed when injected into the back of the hand)

The most serious risk associated with dermal fillers is accidental injection into a blood vessel.  A filler that gets into a blood artery might result in stroke, blindness, or skin necrosis (death of tissue). Despite the minimal likelihood that this may occur, if it does, the ensuing problems may be severe and even permanent. 

As for Botox, negative side-effects of prolonged over-use of Botox may include muscle weakness as the facial muscles involved with Botox application slowly lose their ability to function normally.

How about expensive skincare?

Even the most expensive cosmetic creams can’t live up to claims that they repair skin from within, study finds. Actually, the skin’s role is to act as a barrier, protecting us from potentially harmful chemicals from entering the body. 

Many skincare brands claim that nanoparticles in their products give their creams a ‘deep penetrating action’. However, scientists at the University of Bath found that even the tiniest of nanoparticles do not penetrate the skin’s surface. Their findings suggest that creams are simply deposited into creases in the skin and do not carry nutrients deep under the surface.

Particles used in cosmetic creams that are less than one hundredth of the thickness of a human hair were the subject of the study, which was written up in the Journal of Controlled Release. The researchers tested whether fluorescently-tagged polystyrene beads, with sizes ranging from 20 to 200 nanometers, were taken up by the skin using a method known as laser scanning confocal microscopy. They found that even the nanoparticles still did not penetrate the skin’s outer layer, known as the stratum corneum.

Beauty from within

Cosmetic acupuncture uses facial and body points to bring Qi (energy) and blood to local areas which rejuvenates the skin in a natural, healthy and holistic way. Facial rejuvenation is about balancing and improving our internal health as it is about improving the complexion of the skin. Facial acupuncture improves skin tone and elasticity, reduces the appearance of fine lines under the eyes, and improves complexion.

Chinese herbs are a rich and potent source of healing energy and their use has been perfected and refined over thousands of years. In China, herbs are considered gifts of nature. Taken internally, the herbs’ purpose is to balance and regulate internal body functions as a whole system. By doing that, they eliminate the conditions that lead to aging – signs and symptoms such as wrinkles, sagging face and eye puffiness. Also Chinese herbs can be applied externally in the form of masks, washes and other topical treatments to restore glow and smoothness.

For achieving the best long term results, a combination of acupuncture, herbology, Gua Sha and food nutrition is recommended by acupuncturist and skincare specialist. Learn more about our facial rejuvenation service at our Montreal location.
