Natural Injectables: Skin Rejuvenation with Aesthetic Biopuncture and Biotherapeutics
Written by Amanda Beisel   

woman laying on back viewed from the sideFor well over a decade, aesthetic biopuncture and biotherapeutics have been among the leading skin rejuvenation methods in Europe. These unique and progressive practices merge acupuncture injection therapy and skin needling with high-grade homeopathic solutions, amino acids, vitamins and growth factors to reverse aging at the cellular level. They have been clinically proven to repair, regenerate and detoxify the skin, as well as improve lymphatic flow and circulation to restore the vitality of your skin.

The importance of a well-functioning lymphatic system is often overlooked in skin rejuvenation strategies. Lymph helps fight infection and acts as a toxin filter for our bodies. Sluggish lymph circulation leads to toxic buildup and limits the body's ability to function optimally. This internal congestion has a huge impact on the appearance of your skin. Some common skin-related problems that can be attributed to improper lymphatic functions include:

  • Bumps under the skin’s surface
  • Sensitive, reactive and “allergic” skin
  • Premature aging of the skin
  • Acne breakouts that are slow to heal
  • Puffy eyes and face
  • Dull skin tone
  • Rosacea

Aesthetic biopuncture and biotherapeutics recognize that such undesirable changes in the appearance of our skin are more complex than just the simple result of aging. The skin requires nutritional and lymphatic support, as well as key building blocks, to restore and regenerate a healthy state at the cellular level.

Aesthetic Biopuncture

Aesthetic biopuncture involves tiny injections of natural substances just under the skin into acupuncture points, trigger points and other areas of concern. As a safe and all-natural alternative to Botox and dermal fillers, this is an ideal choice for those searching for a more natural, long-term route to facial rejuvenation. These injections can, however, be used in conjunction with Botox and other fillers for great results. The objective of aesthetic biopuncture is to create a blueprint of healthy collagen that stimulates regeneration of new connective tissue and improves peripheral circulation.

These treatments are not a quick fix, but rather a long-term solution to reduce the signs of aging while improving the health of the skin. The natural injections are safe and have no known side effects. Aesthetic biopuncture is often performed in conjunction with cosmetic acupuncture or biotherapeutics with skin needling to yield maximum results. A series of six or more treatments is recommended and would be determined at time of consultation.

Biotherapeutics with Skin Needling

Skin needling with biotherapeutics is a results-oriented treatment that utilizes a dermal roller to effectively infuse regenerative solutions into the skin. The most effective products used in this treatment are those of GUNA Homeopathics—a cutting-edge Italian homeopathy company with products that have been scientifically researched and prepared to the highest pharmacological standards. GUNA Homeopathics products encourage the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid, and have been proven to treat the signs of intrinsic and extrinsic aging.

Just some of the benefits seen with aesthetic biopuncture and biotherapeutics include:

  • Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improved skin tone
  • Improved skin elasticity
  • A more radiant complexion
  • Supportive treatment of acne and rosacea
  • Improved lymphatic flow
  • Improved skin circulation
  • Reduced puffiness of face and eyes
  • Reduced localized fat tissue

Aesthetic biopuncture and biotherapeutics have been shown to improve the look of your skin while dramatically slowing the aging process. These injections produce a “flattening” effect on wrinkles. Since they lead to an improved metabolism at the area of application, not an artificial filling activity, continued treatments will result in continued improvement. One can expect to see an improvement in skin tone, reduction of wrinkles on the face and neck, improved skin texture and overall vibrancy. Aesthetic biopuncture and biotherapeutics are anti-aging in its truest form.

*Editor’s Note: For individuals with acupuncture coverage, a portion of these treatments is covered by extended health benefits.
