More and more women in the US are finding out firsthand the benefits of cosmetic acupuncture for enhancing their faces and breasts!

That's right – acupuncture treatments can also enhance your breast size and shape!

More on that topic later.

Today, largely due to the internet, cosmetic acupuncture has taken the attention of women of all ages looking for new approaches to natural beauty. It's holistic approach appeals in particular to women who want to enhance their natural features and at the same time reduce the signs of aging without using chemicals or surgery.

Although cosmetic acupuncture is often referred to as an acupuncture face-lift, it has little in common with its surgical counterpart. The focus is to improve the flow of fluids, nutrients, and oxygen to the tissues of the face and breasts through the action of vasodilation (widening of blood vessels). As the blood flow to these tissues improvements from an acupuncture treatment, it has the effect of toning facial lines, reducing the effects of sun damage and muscle tension, brightening the complexion, and bringing a youthful fullness to the face and body.

Not for women only!

Today some top players and business men who want to look their best are also seeking out methods like cosmetic acupuncture to look more vital and youthful for important public presentations, dating service photographs, and personal engagements.

How much does it cost?

The cost of cosmetic acupuncture varies with the practitioner, but typically ranges between $ 90 to $ 150 per session. Minimal compared to a $ 5000 facelift.

And cosmetic acupuncture also has the added effect of stimulating reactive areas (nerve communication centers) on the face, just as with body acupuncture, that stimulates the body's healing processes.

Jeffe Kennedy age 44, internationally known author, environmental consultant, and neurophysiologist, has taken advantage of cosmetic acupuncture for facial rejuvenation and breast enhancement.

“I loved the results of the cosmetic acupuncture. My face looked smoother, more radiant and suffused with a youthful fullness I'd come to miss. looked their best: plump, tight and perky with an enduring effect. ”

How Does It Work?

The skin of the face is very versatile and made up of 3 basic layers, the outer layer the epidermis, the mid layer the dermis, and the bottom or subcutaneous layer.

The outer protective layer of the skin called the epidermis is made up of a combination of living and dead cells and a waxy substance called keratin. This layer of skin can vary in thickness depending upon body location. On the face this layer is reliably thin. This superficial layer of the skin acts in much the same way as the waxy coat on your car to protect against scratches and abrasions, chemicals and sun damage (ultra violet radiation), drying out and cracking, and helps maintain a constant temperature. And, if properly cared for, it gives luster and glow to the facial complexion.

An important fact to keep in mind concerning the epidermis is that it has no direct blood supply. In other words there are no blood vessels in the epidermal layer. It receives its supply of fluids from the dermal layer.

The mid layer or dermis of the skin is much thicker than the epidermis. This layer is made up of collagen, elastic fibers, blood vessels, and nerves. This is the layer that gives your skin its resilience and fullness. Frequently as people age the small blood vessels in this layer became constrained due to a number of factors including poor nutrition, injury, inflammation, and tension from stress. As the blood flow becomes reduced to this dermal area you begin to notice changes in the moisture content, luster, and resilience of the skin. A good example of this problem is when someone appears to grow older over night after a terrible or taxing event. This is one of the area where acupuncture excels by relaxing and opening the small blood vessels of the face and body which improves overall circulation.

The bottom layer or subcutaneous layer of the skin is made up of collagen fibers, adipose tissue, and blood vessels. This layer plays an important role by insulating the body to help regulate temperature and it also gives shape to our facial features.

Now that we've talked about facial acupuncture it is time to talk breasts!

Acupuncture Breast Enhancement

Breast enlargement, or more specifically breast enhancement, has recently been a big topic of conversation in discussions about new cosmetic approaches, due in large part to the popularity along many of the top Taiwanese models and actresses. Some women are choosing to use cosmetic acupuncture for a quick breast boost a couple of days before an important event like weddings, parties, and public appearances. Mainly because acupuncture has such a quick effect, fewer risks of side effects, and minimal cost to get that “perky look” rather than going to straight to implants or surgery.

Does an acupuncture yeast enhancement treatment give the same effect as implants?

No! Contrary to some claims acupuncture does not dramatically increase bust size. However it does enhance the appearance by increasing the fullness, firmness, and perkiness of the breasts. Breast enhancement works the same way as facial acupuncture. Local acupuncture points are selected to use around the breast (not in the breasts) to stimulate a rich supply of blood to the breast.

What should I expect when I get a breast enhancement treatment?

First a routine interview and physical assessment is conducted to see if you are a good candidate for the procedure.

The patient lies on a treatment table just like a regular acupuncture treatment, the breasts are draped by a soft cloth and the acupuncturist carefully selects acupoints surrounding the breast tissue and applies the treatment for 30-45 minutes.

Typically twelve treatments are recommended, once-a-week, along with nutritional support. Since each person's physiology varies very, more or fewer treatments may be needed for ideal results. It all depends on what kind of results each individual wants to achieve.
