What is Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture?

Moreover, facial rejuvenation acupuncture is a popular and safe approach to looking and feeling good. It is also a highly effective natural alternative to botox, surgery and microdermabrasion. This is neither a facelift or replacement to surgery and has no negative side effects.

Treatment is safe, not so costly and virtually painless. It has no side effects or risk of disfigurement, There is also no trauma or any period of recovery. Minor bleeding and bruising may occur. Removal of the needles is the main reason. This is short-term and does not indicate a negative reaction to the procedure.

When combined with constitutional, the treatment aims at the underlying causes of the ageing. It has a more profound effect than simply improving one’s appearance. This helps you look the very best you can.
