They’re a definite go-to for me. I work with Jingduan Yang, MD, in New Jersey–he’s a Western doctor and an accredited acupuncture doctor. The results are a fresh look equal to what a restful vacation achieves. A true acupuncture face-lift includes face and body and is designed individually, for overall assessment of the patient’s well-being.
I try to go weekly or monthly, but if you have a special event, you can do it more than once a week. Because it’s a holistic experience, acupuncture has positive side effects, like better sleep and improving overall well-being in addition to the lift. All the health benefits contribute to the fresh look we all love.
Jingduan Yang, MD, is a physician, a board-certified psychiatrist, an integrative medicine expert, and a fifth-generation teacher and practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine, who specializes in clinical acupuncture.
