Skin ageing can make its appearance with a few fine lines or dryness and it is the the first sign that your skin is changing. While it is impossible to stop the process, we can control or postpone it to an extent. Our skin is at the mercy of many forces, such as the sun, harsh weather, and bad habits. Our skin aging will depend on a variety of factors such as lifestyle, diet, heredity, and other personal habits producing free radicals that damage skin cells, which can lead to premature wrinkles.
But we can take steps to help our skin stay supple and fresh-looking.
As one ages the fat under one’s skin and around muscles starts change, leading to the formation of wrinkles and folds and on our skin contributing the decreased production of collagen and elastin (both proteins that provide structure). Another biological reality is the older you get, the less collagen your body produces. By your mid-20s it starts to decline. By 40, it’s down 25% and, by 60, it will decrease by more than 50%. making your facial skin less firm, as well as thinning the hair, joints, decreasing the strength of the bones and muscles, and affecting the digestive system function.
Acupuncture has been around for centuries and is part of traditional Chinese medicine, it may help treat body pains, headaches, or even nausea. However it’s supplementary benefits such as fascial acupuncture will change at your smile lines and cosmetic treatment is an extension of traditional acupuncture. It naturally help make the skin look younger, smoother, and all-around healthier. And unlike injection procedures, facial acupuncture addresses not only signs of aging, but also the skin’s overall health. Facial acupuncture, is considered to be a safer alternative to surgery or Botox.
