I'm a 38 year-old female who's really trying to embrace aging by keeping up with it! Since I'm not ready for cosmetic alterations (surgery or Botox treatments), at least not yet, I decided to try out cosmetic acupuncture instead. My first round of treatments with Romy was done about 3 years ago, and I was absolutely ecstatic and happy with the results. The tiny wrinkles around the corner of my eyes, you know, the ones "I" noticed began to smooth out, my skin overall felt more toned, and there was a natural freshness or glow many people commented on over and over again. I loved it, yet some times I felt clueless about what others saw. In fact, my supervisor, who was 3 years younger than myself, repeatedly would say to me, "I can't believe you're older than me, but look younger." After completing my treatment (20 sessions) of facial acupuncture, I walked away more than just satisfied and incredibly proud of my new secret. I also felt more confident about myself. Today, 3 years later, and more smiling wrinkles, deeper crow's feet, apparent blemishes, darker circles, deeper folding around the mouth & cheek areas, you know, the ones "You" see ... I decided to call Romy and ask for her help again. But this time there was a challenge or more vanity involved. I also wanted fuller lips: semi Angelina's lips. The results were almost immediate. After the 2nd. session, and a daytime date, my suitor commented over and over again during our lunch how much he loved my lips! As he put it, they were so meatier. I was like, "huh?" And after the 3rd. session, the skin around the eye area began to smooth out. I also noticed less darkness & puffiness around the same area while my lips continue to get fuller. Beyond the facial results we're working on, Romy has also been needling my stomach, and other areas of my body we hone in following our weekly assessment discussions. And the best result, which I consider a "medical" benefit has been kissing goodbye to my irregularity or constipation. For the past 2 1/2 weeks (all 18 days), I have been the happiest camper in my own bathroom! What's even more astonishing, I have not changed my diet, exercise routine, I'm not taking supplements, laxatives, vitamins, etc. Basically, I haven't altered myself in any way, shape or form to fight an irregularity I've experienced most of my adult life. I just completed my 5th acupuncture session of this series, and honestly, I cannot wait to see the end results.
