How to reduce those nasty Wrinkles?
When it comes to reducing wrinkles, most of us are well aware of the importance of drinking water, eating fruits and vegetables, sleeping, and avoiding smoking. But when it’s time to pull out the big guns, here are some options that you might enjoy.
1. Chinese Medicine and Facial Rejuvenation
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture or, cosmetic acupuncture, is a non-surgical modality of treatment for the improvement of the face. In addition to the many and varied health-promoting effects throughout the body than regular acupuncture treats, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture aims to correct the signs of ageing by both local treatments and by treating the underlying causes of why an individual is specifically manifesting the ageing process. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is painless and is a non-surgical method of reducing the signs of the ageing process. It is a revitalization process designed to help the whole body look and feel younger. When acupuncture is combined with low levels of microcurrent it increases the production of both stem cells and blastocysts in the dermis promoting healthy new skin.”
2. Facial Rolling
Facial massage on a regular basis reduces puffiness because it creates lymphatic drainage, and removes toxins, (lymphatic drainage again). The combination of massage from the roller and the energetic properties of the Intensive Renewing Serum improves microcirculation to the face which improves elasticity.
3. Vampire Facials
These are really popular right now but a bit scary. While they don’t involve Botox, they may be a little freaky to those of us that want to go completely non-invasive. Practitioners use a micro-needling device with or without a component of the body’s own blood, platelet-rich plasma. I know, it’s a bit out there.
Micro-Needling involves making shallow punctures in the skin to stimulate collagen production. When we combine this with the injection of platelet-rich plasma, known as the Vampire Facial, we inject a component of the blood into the living dermis that is rich in growth factors.
4. Facial Exercises
A recent study found that a facial exercise regimen made study participants look an average three years younger. The exercises, developed by Gary Sikorski, are called Happy Face Yoga, and they use 32 facial exercises that target muscles on the face. You might want to give this a try.
5. Oxygen Facials
Now we have the ‘Red Carpet” facial, it’s a non-invasive, never irritating, non-painful, skin-calming facial during which pure oyygen is sprayed onto the face with an airbrush. It can have the sensation of sitting in the direct path of a fan or air conditioning car vent. The theory is the that oxygen reduces the inflammation in the skin, improves circulation and facilitates the absorption of anti-aging or hydrating serums applied during or immediately after the treatment.
