Getting old happens to all of us.

You may just be traveling happily along your life’s path, enjoying family, friends, and the hard work of your chosen career, when, SURPRISE! You look in the mirror one day and see a much older face than you were expecting.

Many different things contribute to the speed and severity of physical aging: genetics, lifestyle, geographical location, and the types of products that you use to take care of yourself.

At Complementary Health wellness clinic, we don’t believe age is something to be ashamed of: you can be healthy and beautiful at any age!

However, we do believe that everyone deserves to be comfortable in their own skin, and if you feel like the person you are on the inside doesn’t match the person you are on the outside, it can cause stress, anxiety, and even depression.dreamstime_xxl_44597363

That’s why our wellness clinic offers acupuncture treatments that may be able to slow some of the effects of early aging. Here are three ways acupuncture works to make you look and feel more youthful:

  • Collagen Production – There are literally hundreds of chemical-based products on the market that claim to stimulate collagen production in your face. Through the process of microtrauma, acupuncture can actually achieve this goal, resulting in fresher, plumper looking skin.
  • Reducing Expression Lines – Every time we smile, laugh, frown, or drink through a straw, we reinforce expression lines in our face. Over time they become very deep. Acupuncture can relax and retrain your facial muscles to reduce the appearance of these lines for a younger look.
  • Balancing Hormones – Hormones are responsible for many of the blemishes and uneven skin tones we see in our older years, especially for women going through menopause. Acupuncture treatments may be able to calm and balance these hormones, reducing the negative effects they create in our appearance.
