Best Way to Make Yourself Look Younger 

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture at Stillpoint Wellness Center

Aging gracefully is a virtue, and some of us know that you can stay beautiful throughout your years without going for the tautly stretched look or overloading on Botox. Bina Jangda of Stillpoint Wellness Center is one of the only acupuncturists in the city to offer facial rejuvenation acupuncture (FRA), a technique that's been known for centuries but has just started to make a splash stateside. It offers a nonsurgical, noninvasive method of reducing aging signs: By improving circulation and restoring balance to the body, the technique can repair the sort of cellular damage that's directly connected to aging. Paired with a lifestyle consultation (since beauty ain't just skin-deep), FRA uses needles in specific areas of your face, scalp, hands, feet, and legs to increase blood and lymph flow and to strengthen the immune system and restore overall balance. While the sensations aren't always pleasant, particularly if you're nervy around needles, it definitely beats the pain of dermal fillers. Also, Jangda's personable tableside manner (not to mention yummy side effects like better sleep) always makes for a soothing visit. You can book individual sessions, but to really see the results (reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging; tightened pores; and increased collagen production), you'll want the 10-session package.
