Cosmetic Acupuncture, also known as Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, is a deeply relaxing natural beauty treatment which combines the restorative effects of acupuncture with specialist face lifting massage techniques to improve the tone and complexion of the skin.
The effects of the treatment include:
- Fine lines and wrinkles appear reduced
- Improved skin tone
- Reduction in puffiness and dark circles
- Skin feels firmer and looks radiant
- Reduction of tension around the shoulders, neck, scalp and face.
- Eyes sparkle and feel refreshed
- Renewed energy and a sense of calm and well being
A Typical Treatment
The treatment starts with a detailed consultation in which you are asked about any areas of your face or skin which you feel you would like to receive attention, this helps your acupuncturist to choose which points in the face and body to use.
Fine sterile needles are carefully inserted in to the body and face and may be combined with other techniques of Chinese Medicine such as Moxa and cupping.
After 20-30 minutes your needles are carefully removed and a rich blend of natural oils and plant essences are stroked over your neck, shoulders, scalp and face as part of your face lift massage treatment.
As with any holistic treatment, the effects are individual and will depend on a number of factors. It is recommended that you have a course of treatment as best results are often seen and experienced if treatment is applied weekly over a course of six or ten sessions.
After the treatment, your therapist will give you aftercare advice which may include information on nutrition and lifestyle to help you get best results.
For those who don’t like needles, don’t worry, you can also have the Rejuvenating Facial Massage on it’s own as a stand alone treatment which costs £40 for a 1-hour appointment. Please contact me for further information.
The needles used in cosmetic acupuncture are very fine and small. There is often a feeling of tingling or a mild ache when needles are inserted and some points may feel more active than others. With any acupuncture treatment, there is always the possibility of bruising to the skin which will reduce naturally over time.
