Kiss Fine Lines and Wrinkles Goodbye this Valentine’s Day

by Heather Schuerlein, L.Ac, Dipl.OM

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! This is usually a time when we stop to appreciate those special people in our lives we love and cherish. Maybe it’s your significant other, your kids, or gal pals. But what about you?! With the popularity of “self-care” rising, there’s no better time to treat yourself to the magical effects of cosmetic acupuncture.

Cosmetic acupuncture is sometimes referred to as facial rejuvenation because it does just that – it uses acupuncture techniques, herbal products, and other natural resources to restore your skin to its younger, more vibrant self. Cosmetic acupuncture can turn back the hands of time - or at least halt it in its tracks. If you have been feeling lack-luster or in need of a mind-body-face refresh, treat yourself to Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture at the Adirondack Wellness Group.

Acupuncture and Beauty

Acupuncture is well known for its ability to help ease pain, relieve stress, and treat a wide range of health conditions. Did you know that it can be quite miraculous in the beauty world as well? Acupuncture and the Mei Zen system takes a holistic approach to beauty, leaving you not only glowing but healthier as well.

Acupuncture has the ability to increase blood flow to certain areas which, in our case, helps to improve the tone and quality of the skin. It has also shown to increase collagen production and reduce signs of inflammation. On a more holistic level, acupuncture helps to ease stress (no more frowning!), improve sleep (nourished skin!), and improve your overall health (plenty of energy to spend on beauty).

Fine Lines and Wrinkles, No More!

One of the reasons cosmetic acupuncture is so useful is its ability to minimize fine lines and wrinkles. These are natural side-effects of a life well-lived; our wrinkles mark our smiles, laughs, thoughts, and experiences. Nevertheless, most of us would prefer to keep our skin smooth and taut as long as possible.

With the Mei Zen system, we work to bring oxygen, blood flow, and nutrients to the skin of the face. The acupuncture needles also stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. By targeting wrinkles and lines, we can plump up these areas while preventing further wrinkles.

The Mei Zen system considers each person and their individual attributes and problem areas to help them put their best face forward. Most people will need a series of treatments for the best results, but this may vary person to person. Be prepared to put in some self-care work at home with specialized products, techniques, diet, and lifestyle advice to help bring out the very best in you.

Love Your Skin, Love Yourself

There’s no shame in wanting to look your absolute best. The good news is that acupuncture provides a natural, safe, and healthy way to revitalize your skin and keep your face young and glowing for years to come. This Valentine’s Day, treat yourself to a gorgeous future and a healthier approach to beauty and get started on the Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture system!
