Help is here for those who have used or thought about Botox® and fillers to combat the effects of sun damage and aging. Dr. Lorri Beauchamp, acupuncturist and Oriental Medicine specialist at Alternative Medicine Center, Fort Lauderdale, asks, “Why risk injecting toxins and chemicals into your system when you can address skin care and anti-aging in a health-conscious way?”
She invites men and women to experience the benefits of smoothing fine lines and complexion tones and reducing pore appearance and dark circles with mesotherapy. Similar to an acupuncture “skin prick”, she injects natural agents like collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid into the skin surface, which nurture and hydrate with no side effects or toxicity—plus, they encourage the body to produce more of its own nutrients. A series of therapeutic treatments generally produce more dramatic results over time, but can be better than a “quick fix” using toxins or temporary chemicals.
“Mesotherapy is the best method I have found to restore damaged or aged skin,” says Beauchamp. “A gradual improvement and healing will occur over time with a seasonal touch up—much better than pumping skin up unnaturally with toxins that obviously change your appearance.
