Facial Acupuncture: Better Than Botox?


I recently turned 36. I thought that I didn’t look too terrible, until my 6 year-old announced that I am starting to get ‘old lady’ face around my eyes. The mere thought of being a human pincushion was enough to make me queasy but the potential for relief so great that I acquiesced and let Dr. Pinard practice acupuncture on my afflicted body – even going so far as needling my head.

My initial experience with acupuncture was from a place of desperation, but the relief that I experienced has made me a believer in its healing abilities. When Shelley first told me about facial acupuncture, I was dubious at first but after further examination (read: scrutinizing my face in the mirror) I am game to give it a try.
