Is There a Less Invasive Way of Attaining a Face-lift?

Nothing can compare to a face-lift but if you are looking for a subtle change you should consider cosmetic acupuncture.

" a 1996 report in the international journal of clinical acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with cosmetic acupuncture, 90% had marked effects with one course of treatment. The effects include: the skin becomes delicate, improvement of elasticity of facial muscles, ruddier complexion, and overall rejuvenation. "

it is an effective, non-surgical treatment to reduce the signs of aging. It is based on the principles of chinese medicine, which involves the insertion of very thin sterile disposable needles into the acupuncture points on the face. This increases the local circulation to the face and stimulate collagen production, which will fill out the lines and give firmness to the skin for a healthy, glowing complexion.

However, make sure to find a licensed practitioner with specialized training in cosmetic acupuncture.
