A "Safe" Facelift?

While I believe that attempts to halt or deny the aging process can be roadblocks to aging gracefully, there may be an acceptable alternative to some current “turn back the clock” trends: facial acupuncture. This therapy is far less invasive than a surgical procedure and does not carry the dangers associated with a traditional facelift (not to mention being less expensive). Facial acupuncture is also free of the side effects of therapies such as Botox injections, and it offers psychological benefits - patients may feel relaxed as a result of the therapy. With or without acupuncture, a healthy diet, exercise and stress reduction techniques are still my top recommendations for a healthy lifestyle, and the keys to aging gracefully.

Thank you, Dr. Weil, for this blogpost. Facial rejuvenation acupuncture really is helpful. The results are subtle but noticeable. I love it!

Thanks Dr. Weil, I have just discovered facial acupuncture recently and I've been thinking of recommending it to clients who tell me they are thinking about having a surgical face lift. I've been researching the subject and I'm glad to see you are recommending it as an alternative treatment already.
