Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation involves tiny inter-dermal needle insertion under the deep wrinkles around the mouth, in the furrow lines between the eyes and on the forehead.
This causes collagen to rush to these areas and fill in and reduce the depth of the wrinkles. It has the added benefit of increased blood flow and lymphatic drainage which reduces puffiness and provides better circulation to the skin allowing for a more youthful appearance.
On the other end of the spectrum, Botox works by paralyzing the muscles in the face with a live bovine (cow) virus. As many people know when it comes to muscle, “if you don’t use it, you lose it.” This immobilization of the facial muscles causes them to atrophy. If, for any reason, you decide to stop using Botox the muscles in your face will droop and sag very dramatically. When you factor in that you are injecting a live virus not only into your body but into your face, it seems very extreme. Because it is.
Acupuncture facial rejuvenation is not a face lift. It is for deep and fine lines, reduction of puffiness and increased blood flow. It is also drug free, side-effect free, very low risk and you can stop any time with no negative repercussions. No injections, no drugs, no Botox.
