Stars often undergo cosmetic and corrective surgeries on various parts of the body. But actress Mehreen took a less-trodden path to maintain her looks. A couple of days ago, she visited the famous Dr John Tsagaris, a wellness and acupuncture specialist in London, for a procedure on her face.
Mehreen, who says she prefers traditional methods of treatment to medicines, explains that acupuncture can be extended for cosmetic procedures too.
The actress first read about the doctor in a magazine, and wanted to get the treatment done by him as he is reputed to be the best in the world. "I don’t believe in fillers and botox!" the Raja The Great star says, adding, from inserting needles painlessly into specific spots to finally cleaning up the face, the entire process took an hour ."Initially three pins were put on my ears and then on my face. This is the first time I am undergoing such a treatment and it’s been great and amazing. I could see the results immediately," she says.
"Facial acupuncture makes my skin look younger, smoother and healthier. It addresses not only signs of aging, but also the skin’s overall health and appearance," shares Mehreen, adding that the treatment boosts the production of collagen and makes the skin tauter.
Mehreen, who is also an adventure freak, recently did some diving in the Maldives. A certified scuba diver, she relishes taking up adventure sports whenever she visits an island country. "I love taking up tasks that push me and I love adventure sports. Being adventurous is like therapy. It changed me a lot. Underwater life makes me feel very peaceful," she says and shares that it gave her a different perspective on life.
