Photo Ready By Thanksgiving: Facials, Fillers, and Cosmetic Acupuncture

Thanksgiving will be here before you know it, which means now is the time to use simple, non-invasive cosmetic treatments to make sure you look photo ready to celebrate with friends and family. Facials, fillers, and cosmetic acupuncture offer unique benefits that can rejuvenate your skin and enhance your appearance quickly and easily.

Facials

The facial is one of the most versatile and flexible cosmetic procedures available. Whether you want to get rid of your blackheads, rejuvenate your complexion, or battle signs of aging, there is a type of facial customized to help you reach your goals.

In its basic form, a facial is a multi-step skin treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, and nourishes the skin to promote a healthy, youthful complexion. This is why facials work best when used as part of an ongoing skin care regime. In fact, your facial will make you glow on Thanksgiving and long after!

Fillers

Fillers are liquid injectables that directly restore lost volume to the face and sometimes even stimulate new collagen production to reduce and eliminate deep wrinkles, creases, and sunken cheeks. They come in many different types and formulas, so make sure you find the filler that works best for your needs.

Restylane, for example, is a gentle filler that can be injected close to the surface of the skin to reverse superficial wrinkles in delicates areas like around the eyes. Radiesse, on the other hand, is a volumizing filler that promotes natural collagen production and helps to fill nasolabial folds and contour the cheeks. Juvederm is another well-known filler that is formulated with hyaluronic acid to reverse and repair signs of aging like smile lines, marionette lines, and lost volume in the cheeks.  

Cosmetic Acupuncture

According to traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture targets specific points located on the body that, when triggered, release a flow of energy and stimulate the body’s healing process in order to bring everything back into balance. Western science explains this in terms of stimulating nerves, muscles, and connective tissue to activate the body’s natural painkillers and blood flow.

Cosmetic acupuncture harnesses these principles to encourage collagen and elastin cell growth. Tine, ultra-fine needles, are placed across the face to improve blood flow and trigger natural regeneration and rejuvenation within the dermis. Common benefits of cosmetic acupuncture include a fresh, rosy skin color and relaxing experience that boosts endorphins. Many people use cosmetic acupuncture as a natural, inexpensive, pain-free facelift alternative.
