The face is seen as a window reflecting the whole health of the body. Cosmetic acupuncture is a holistic way to improve skin tone, circulation and lymphatic drainage to soften lines and wrinkles and improve firmness.
Each visit involves a skin consultation and general health review. Ultra fine needles, specifically for cosmetic use, are gently inserted alongside supportive points on the body. This is usually followed by a facial massage.
Most patients report that their skin feels tighter and more radiant after just one treatment. A full course of treatment (usually around 10-12 treatments) can replenish and restore the face to its natural condition by reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, improving skin elasticity and muscle tone, evening out skin tone and reducing the appearance of any scars.
Anyone, of any age can benefit. Techniques for scar reduction and skin improvement can be used on other areas of the body besides the face.
Please Note: Cosmetic acupuncture is not recommended during pregnancy, if you have a coldsore or open wound, if you have a headache or migraine –in these instances regular acupuncture treatment may be able to help.
