Awaken Now -- Acupuncture and Wellness Center
Have you ever thought of acupuncture as a weapon against aging? “This age-old healing practice is now becoming the new trend in natural facelifts,” says Dr. Marina Dabcevic, a registered acupuncturist with a Doctorate in Oriental Medicine and Acupuncture. Beauty gurus and wellness advocates are seeking non-invasive
alternatives to achieve their desired look and many are turning to Cosmetic or Facial Acupuncture. This non-toxic alternative to Botox encompasses an inner and outer wellness experience with many benefits and is now available at Awaken Now.
It won't work overnight. This is a specific 10 session protocol that is performed twice per week for 5 weeks. The reason being the dermis takes 4-5 weeks to regenerate. We need to continuously stimulate the dermis with micro-traumas caused by the hair-thin needles to build collagen and elastin to create long-lasting results. The best part... Dr. Marina recommends getting the 10 session Cosmetic Acupuncture protocol once every 2-5 years, if monthly facials are scheduled for regular maintenance.
You don't have to fear the needles. They are so small that you can barely see them. Although there are approximately 80 needles in your face, you will feel very relaxed listening to the soft music and the trickle of water from the nearby fountain. A serene experience in the most tranquil setting.
As an added bonus, Dr. Marina uses GM Collin Skincare products, prime partners of the Oscars. As part of your 10 sessions, you will get 3 facials with your choice of the following masks: a vitamin C mask which fills your skin with enough vitamin C to fight free radicals, strengthen the skin against sun damage, and boost collagen production to give you firmer, smoother skin; or an incredibly healing algae mask which hydrates, softens, and detoxifies the skin, replenishing it with essential vitamins and minerals.
Acupuncture has been practiced for centuries. It encourages the body to promote natural healing, alleviating aches and pains, promoting digestion, aiding in sleep, calming the mind, and now making you look younger! Dr. Marina is excited to be at the forefront of this wellness movement.
