I have always been very open about new treatments for the skin and for your body inside and out; and recently I have been embracing more natural methods for my skin and for my body. One of the treatments I was interested in was the acupuncture facial- it’s called the “New Face lift”. It is not in a jar, it is very non-invasive, and the biggest perk NO DOWN TIME!!!
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture aids in eliminating fine lines,it firms and lifts the skin, diminishes puffiness, acne, and discoloration or hyper pigmentation of the skin. Traditional acupuncture originated in China and using needles in pressure points(meridians) in the body connected to other to help in the positive blood flow and energy throughout your body. I have had acupuncture several times and I can say that it most definitely helped to cure my chronic back, but will it help to improve my collagen and elasticity? I went to Lotus Acupuncture in Columbia, SC. It is a very peaceful, calm and inviting environment, and the owner and therapist Lori is just as peaceful, calm and inviting. Since I have had acupuncture before, I am never afraid of the initial little pinch of the needle s- but that all it is a little pinch. The needles are placed in the meridians of the face, arms, and parts of the legs, as you lay the relaxation helps to loosen tense muscles throughout your entire body that creates wrinkles and stress and helps to strengthen those loose muscles that causes sagging . Additional benefits of this particular facial is the overall balance and energy throughout your entire body.
The acupuncture facial is an hour long treatment for $150.00, prices will vary from $100.00-$175.00 depending on your location and your expertise of your practitioner, and 10- 12 treatments are advised you can get this treatment weekly and packages are available. The benefits of this treatment are:
- Increase collagen production
- Improvement of hormonal balancing
- Tighten pores
- Eliminates toxins and puffiness
- Improves clarity and tone of the skin
I found the treatment to be very relaxing, and my skin did feel tighter, smooth, and brighter; and the muscles throughout my body was more relaxed and loose, I enjoyed just as much if not more than massages that I have had in the past.
Lori and Lotus Acupuncture is located in Columbia on Gervais St., and here in Charleston for a traditional acupuncture and great and awesome service go to Charleston Community Acupuncture in West Ashley, on Savannah Highway.
