Q: I am a middle-aged person. Is there a way to tone my facial muscles and reduce wrinkles without surgery?

A: Yes. Cosmetic acupuncture can reduce the signs of aging, revitalize the skin and provide a more youthful look to your face. By inserting whisper-thin pins into certain areas, facial muscles are relaxed and toned. The acupuncture face lift technique has the potential of rejuvenating the tissue by increasing circulation to the area and tightening the muscles. Many who have utilized this approach to slow down the aging process report that they see positive facial changes, as well as experiencing better health in general. Of course, eating a well-balanced diet, exercising and proper treatment of your face all contribute to healthier looking facial tissue and a glowing complexion. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal therapy help you maintain overall health and a more youthful appearance.
