Cosmetic Acupuncture

 

Cosmetic and Facial Acupuncture is a relatively recent advent that is an enhancement to standard acupuncture.

It provides - 

  • A natural and holistic alternative to Botox or surgical procedures.
  • A means of allowing the body to naturally produce collagen to provide anti-ageing benefits.
  • Increased feelings of well being and vitality in addition to improvement in cosmetic appearance.
  • A reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
  • A rejuvenated glowing look to your complexion.

 How does it work ?

  • Insertion of very fine needles into the skin triggers an inflammatory response.
  • This inflammatory response increases localised blood circulation, production of collagen and stimulates muscle regeneration.
  • This subsequently improves skin elasticity, increases oil and water content reducing lines and wrinkles and gives a "tighter" skin feel.
  • Additional needle points also trigger more traditional acupuncture points to promote positive wellness areas - digestion, respiration and cardiovascular systems.

What does the procedure involve ?

  • Exact insertion of a number of sterile one use needles (up to 90) - mainly in the facial area.
  • The needles remain in place for 20-25 minutes.
