No one has found the fountain of youth, but some ancient techniques could help you stay young.
For those who prefer the needle to the knife, 'Acu-lifts' are proven to reduce the visibility of wrinkles.
During the treatment, an acupuncturist will put 30 to 60 needles in your face to help stimulate the production of collagen.
"Some women actually lose weight because we’re doing a lot of points on the stomach channel and large intestine,” Moria McCarthy with Whole Body Health said. “They feel better. It lowers their blood pressure, reduces stress, there's just a lot of underlying health benefits to doing it."
Acupuncturists say patients usually see the most results after a series of 10 sessions. They say the ancient technique frees up chi--or energy--which can rejuvenate the skin.
