Cosmetic Acupuncture vs. Dermal Fillers

Many people have fears about using dermal fillers to improve the appearance of their face. We understand; even though these minimally invasive procedures are low-risk, starting them when you're new to them can be a little bit nerve-wracking. But are alternative procedures really a better way to go? Many people who want to avoid injections, even minimally-invasive ones, are turning to the latest trend in cosmetic acupuncture to improve the appearance of their faces. Is it the way to go? BlueRidgeNow recently reported on the case of a woman who once used Botox and then decided to switch to cosmetic acupuncture. She says that she's paying the price in terms of money spent but is pleased with the results of her treatment. However, the article also points out that no studies have been done improving the effectiveness of the procedure. And when you think about it, you still have to worry about the fear of putting needles into your face. What these people are replacing with cosmetic acupuncture is the use of dermal fillers. Botox, Restylane and Radiesse are all dermal fillers that are used to plump up the cheeks, the eyes and the lips to improve the appearance of the face. They smooth out wrinkles and reduce the appearance of aging. If you have hesitations about using these chemical injections but don't particularly want to go to an acupuncturist for your skin rejuvenation, consider asking your doctor about a treatment like the Titan Non-Surgical Facelift which provides a happy medium for your concerns.
