With over 20 years of practicing acupuncture between us we decided to further study and discover its cosmetics and holistic benefits particularly its natural and safe method of reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
WHAT IS COSMETIC ACUPUNCTURE? Cosmetic facial acupuncture is a totally natural and holistic treatment that aims to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) techniques are applied to enhance well-being and promote a reduction in the signs of aging. This holistic yet effective anti-ageing concept has become the natural alternative of celebrities often recognised as “a whole body anti-ageing facial”.
Cosmetic facial acupuncture works by stimulating several crucial healing mechanisms. It increases local blood and lymph circulation to the face thereby increasing the oxygen flow which nourishes the skin and accelerates the removal of cellular waste. This stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin which improves skin tone, elasticity keeping the skin looking youthful.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF FACIAL ACUPUNCTURE?
- Softens the appearance of wrinkles and lines.
- Improves the appearance of bags around the eyes, drooping eyelids and scars.
- Stimulates local circulation of blood and lymph to the face leaving the skin feeling hydrated and nourished.
- Improves skin elasticity and skin tone around the face and neck.
- Encourages tightening of the pores and brightens the eyes.
- It is a natural and safe alternative to more invasive procedures without the risks or side effects.
Cosmetic Acupuncture requires a course of treatment to show pronounced results. The number of treatments depends on your individual condition. Most patients notice a difference after one or two sessions, however the effects become most noticeable and last after 6 treatments.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR TREATMENT SESSION?
At the first appointment, an assessment will be carried out and a health screening will be completed.
A discussion takes place as to which areas of the face you would like to improve.
Extremely fine needles are placed on specific points on the face, forehead and ears to create micro-punctures in the skin surface.
Some body points may also be used in your arms and legs to help harmonise your internal organs and support the facial treatment.
The needles will be left in place for approximately 20 minutes while you relax.
