Fountain of Youth in the Tip of a Needle:
A Look at Cosmetic Acupuncture


--body + mind + spirit--

Mindful or not, most folks would simply prefer to look youthful and radiant for as long as possible. For many plastic surgeries and chemical ridden injections are simply not an option, and nor does it have to be, thanks to the amazing results delivered through cosmetic acupuncture. From Madonna to Gwyneth Paltrow, Hollywood who's who have been turning less to going under the knife, than going under the needle.

The technique involves application of fine needles into both problem areas, and to the body to stimulate the constitution. According to Anthony Kingston, director of cosmetic surgery at White Lotus Cosmetic Acupuncture, says of the treatment "There is a huge demand for these services. The main reason for its rapid growth is its natural and effective approach to skin rejuvenation. Its safety and effectiveness have been tested for over 2000 years in China. More recently cosmetic acupuncture has been shown to affect the skins natural collagen balance alleviating the signs of aging such as wrinkles and sagging."

The treatment also explores a more holistic approach to aging. The acupuncture not only treats the site of the age damage, but also the area of the body, and specific organs, which are impacting it. The side effects from such treatments can include slight bruising in the area of treatment, which can last up to a week. But bruising for a few days is a far better price to pay than the costly and dangerous cosmetic surgeries that offer far more invasive alternatives.

With a little bit of cosmetic acupuncture, some healthy eating, and a relaxed and joyful approach to living - we all can look and feel timeless...naturally.
