The Health of Skin

A year ago my mother was up to visit. As we sat across from each other at breakfast, she unexpectedly blurted out “I’m sorry I’m so wrinkled. I didn’t know in my early days to take care of my skin to prevent wrinkles.”

As I was pondering that, I thought of how lucky we are today to know that we could do something to prevent or minimize wrinkles, lines and other signs of aging. To have youthful skin actually starts from the inside. The skin is an external manifestation of what’s going on inside. To have healthy skin, you have to be healthy. You must be nourished. Consuming nutrient-dense foods, foods high in essential fatty acids and avoiding processed foods go a long way in helping skin.

Essential nutrition also means improving what you put on your skin. This is especially important as your body absorbs what is put onto your skin and can eventually affect your overall health. Avoid chemical-laden skin care products. Instead, use products containing mostly botanicals – food that feeds and nourishes the skin.

Today we have lots at our fingertips to help with that youthful appearance. We have harsh chemical peels, laser peels, surgical facelifts and more. Many people want the youthful appearance but don’t want to go those routes for varying reasons. Few know there are other, non-invasive choices.

When the muscles in your face start to sag it’s because they have lost tone. Just as your body’s muscles, if you don’t exercise, lose tone and become flabby. While creams and serums, chemicals and laser resurfacing or surgery does not restore tone, there is something that does. It is called Acu-Tone Myotonology.

Acu-Tone Myotonology is a non-surgical, non-chemical procedure that “exercises” the muscles in the face. By using modern micro-current technology, individual muscles of the face are isolated and individually strengthened to restore that youthful tone. Other muscles (such as around the mouth from pursing the lips, or “concentration” lines are relaxed to soften the appearance of lines. Combined with the ancient art of acupuncture, acu-points are stimulated (no needles are used) to help restore the normal moisture balance and tone of the skin itself. Acu-Tone Myotonology is a great combination for wonderfully toned skin.

The procedure, done by a Licensed Esthetician, also involves using healthy botanically based skin prep and after-procedure skin care that nourishes and protects the skin.  Instead of leaving with a bright red face you have to hide, you leave the office with skin looking healthy and increasingly toned. This continues and lasts longer and longer with each procedure. After a series of procedures, a once a month or so maintenance schedule is recommended to maintain muscle tone.

If you want a non-invasive approach to wonderfully toned, youthful appearing skin, try Acu-Tone Myotonology today!  Call Vital Health for a complimentary consultation, during which the Acu-Tone Myotonology procedure will be performed on half of your face so that you can see the difference for yourself.
