Ok so I decided to go see an acupunturist/herbalist who specialize in cosmetic acupunture today for my first appointment.
Each treatment cost $120 and I have to continue for atleast 16 treatments plus herbs for maintance. I will keep everyone posted on the procedure. Thank You

BTW I am getting it for dark circles and puffy eyes especially and for hormonal balance

That's really interesting - hadn't known much about it, here's a good article on it, Dec 2007, from the New York Times:

Hold the Chemicals, Bring on the Needles

Looking forward to hearing how your treatments go.

I did my first session yesterday and would need to do atleast 16 sessions total
(ie twice a week) then maintance once a month. Its hard to tell the difference since they say you dont really "witness" resulsts until after the fifth treatment, i do notice my face more even. I can not wait to see how my face is going to look in 12 sessions.Oh yeah, I'm paying $120 per session. I know alot of money but cosmetic acupunture also benefits the overall body with a face lift...lol

My main concern is my dark circles,puffy eyes,psychological disorer(s),stress, and gaining weight. I will keep everyone posted and inbetween I am taking Dong Quai and lycium aka "Acai".

I think Lycium is actually Goji or Wolfberry...not Acai.

Quote:
Lycium fruit is obtained from Lycium chinense, a common plant of eastern Asia that is now cultivated to meet the high demand for its fruits, used in Asian cuisine and, more commonly, as an ingredient in traditional Chinese herbal formulas. Lycium is in the Solanaceae family that gives us peppers, eggplants, potatoes, tomatoes, and other food items. The fruit is known by the Chinese name gouqizi, meaning the fruits of the willow-like shrub, and has been used since ancient times, recorded in the earliest existing Chinese materia medica published around 100 A.D. It was reputed to improve the complexion and vision and prolong life if taken regularly.

TRADITIONAL AND MODERN USES
Traditionally, lycium fruit is described as having the properties of nourishing the blood, enriching the yin, tonifying the kidney and liver, and moistening the lungs. It is applied in the treatment of consumptive diseases accompanied by thirst (includes early-onset diabetes and tuberculosis), impotence, sore back, dizziness, blurred vision, diminished visual acuity, and chronic cough. In China, treatment of bone marrow deficiency conditions (low production of red blood cells, platelets, or white blood cells, often the result of cancer therapies) with herb formulas frequently involves lycium fruit as a major ingredient.

Here is another link that talks about the differences in where your Lycium berry comes from:

Açaí (ah-sigh-ee) is the high-energy berry of a special Amazon palm tree. Harvested in the rainforests of Brazil, açaí tastes like a vibrant blend of berries and chocolate. Hidden within its royal purple pigment is the magic that makes it nature's perfect energy fruit. Açaí is packed full of antioxidants, amino acids and essential fatty acids. Although açaí may not be available in your local supermarket, you can find it in several health food and gourmet stores (often in juice form). A new product featuring the unsweetened pulp is now also available, and I highly recommend that you choose this form of açaí.

Very interesting! I had acupuncture and ayurvedic treatments for other health reasons and i was very impressed with the results.
I can very well imagine that it should work well for improving blood circulation, lymph-drainage (-> dark circles and puffiness), metabolism, getting rid of toxins, reducing stress level, etc.. Please tell us more how it is going!! I also think the price is quite good! Where do you live?

I live in California. PM for more information. Yes $120 isnt bad where in certain places its $135-150 per treatment. They request i get it twice a week but I decided to test it and do one this past week and one this week coming up but starting next week I will do it twice a week for faster results.

Very Happy

I too did this about 18 months ago, I was told I would need minimum 12 sessions at $110 per. Sadly there was little if any noticeable improvement and my practitioner was specifically trained in cosmetic acupuncture as well as being a Doctor of Chinese Medicine. When I would go he would exclaim at the improvements, but NO one else including me noticed any change. I was quite disappointed and felt ripped off as well. Sad
