No wrinkles in time…
By: Sandee Whiteman
Los Angeles(Perfect Skin Today)5/17/15–Looking for an alternative to fillers or cosmetic plastic surgery? There is an ancient beauty technique that is making its way into the modern day scene…Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture.
Cosmetic Acupuncture has been used for centuries in Asian Countries. In the past few years it has started to make a mark in the United States as an alternative to Botox. The procedure is also used for skin conditions such as acne or rosacea. Any cosmetic flaws you maybe facing, Cosmetic Acupuncture can help diminish the appearance.
A specially trained professional in Facial Acupuncture always administers the procedure, by using needles on specific points of the face to enhance a more youthful appearance.
I was happy to be introduced to the talented Cindy Albon, L.Ac. of WellStream Acupuncture in Los Angeles. Her office is located on the hip and trendy street of Larchmont Blvd. She offers a variety of acupuncture services including Cosmetic Acupuncture.
I found that her Cosmetic Acupuncture was different from a lot of other therapists performing the facial as she focuses on getting to the root of the problem with an initial health and wellbeing analysis, which is included in your first session. So the day of my appointment, we had an initial 30-45 minute talk and consultation before the actual service was performed. This would help her figure out what could be stimulating certain facial expressions, causing the wrinkling and damaging of my skin. Cindy treats the whole body to relieve stress, pain and other health issues, as how you feel is reflected in your face.
One area of concern to me was my brow furrow, along with a pulsating pain in the back of my neck. Cindy discussed with me that this is due to tension and worry. We have a tendency to make the brow furrow when there is tension. We also discussed other areas that were causing some discomfort, and she concluded that my spleen energy may be blocked and liver needed some detoxing. She worked on areas of the body that would help open up and let the chi energy flow. She also used special points throughout the face and scalp to lift and firm. After meditating and relaxing for about 30 minutes, the facial acupuncture was concluded. Then Cindy used lavender water and a dermal roller with an organic serum rich in antioxidants to firm and hydrate the skin.
I noticed immediately after the treatment that I had a dewy glow, and my skin was very firm and plump. Cindy said, “ for best results you need a treatment course of 12 sessions, and you will see additional results by the 4th-6th session. Depending on your age, the results can last up to 5-10 years.”
I concluded that this cosmetic result not only made me look good, but also feel good at the same time. I was able to get a little R&R and balance in my life… CHI ENERGY Flowing…
