Pin Head

So, last night I received cosmetic acupuncture.

David is taking the class this semester, as part of his Doctor of Oriental Medicine degree. It's an elective, though. As far as the school is concerned. The way it went was this: David was vacillating on taking it, since it's a Thursday evening class after a full day of classes. I said if he loved me, he'd take the class.

Fortunately the man loves me.

He might also have been swayed by my argument that he could make potloads of money giving people surgery-free facelifts and breast enhancing treatments that can increase you by AN ENTIRE CUP SIZE. That's what they say.

I know, right?

So, I went in to the class last night to be a test-subject. David is the only guy taking the class - and he says the other guys are missing out on this opportunity. First, he put a few needles in my wrists and ankles, and one just below my belly-button, to bring up that cool and dewy yin energy.

Then he put needles in my face. They sting a bit, but are mostly tingly. Besides, the body needles had already made me sleepy and relaxed. If you look closely, he put tiny little hair-thin needles in the lines on my forehead. Those are laugh lines, by the way. I don't want to hear any of you saying different.

You can also see how my face is flushed and looking kind of shiny. Amazingly, the treatment did bring a dewy freshness to my skin. And this morning, my skin looks smoother, with the fine lines much less noticeable.

I also slept really well last night - a blessing since I'd a stressful week.

Two enthusiastic thumbs up!

  5. I don't like needles, but this seems like a better alternative to Botox. (no I don't plan on putting that in my body)
