Thoughts on the use of Botox

I don’t condemn or judge anyone for using Botox or having cosmetic surgery..I feel everyone should make the choices that are best for them.  You may like to read Siri Carpenter’s Los Angeles Times article and consider what your are giving up by shunting the emotional connection between your face and brain.

I have been treating patients with acupuncture for over 10 years. In my experience, most facial lines and creases are the result of our thoughts and expressions. As we proceed through time, these “character” lines get locked in our facial musculature which in turn etch their way into our skin. Acupuncture provides one of the most powerful tools to naturally release the negative emotions that contribute an aged face. This is my favorite part of acupuncture. Acupuncture won’t delete your feelings or take anything away from you. Emotions are part of the human condition. It simply opens the doors through your meridians so that the toxic build up of grief, sadness, anger and rage, may gently float out when you are ready.

  1. Absolutely great article! Thank you! I would never consider to get BOTOX. It has many side effects. Chinese medicine has many facial treatments and herbs for beauty available and without harmful side effects!

  2. I have a very expressive face and I would never want to lose that. Facial expressions is a huge part of our daily communication. You can tell so much about what a person is thinking or feeling through facial expressions. It would be a shame to lose that. At, I was reading that these injections aren’t even permanent. I’m not sure what the effect of several years of injection of this toxin into your body will have.

  3. Wow it would be pretty sad to be sad or happy and not have people notice it. What would people do without being able to see real reactions and emotions? this is terrible….

    Great article.
