What Is Cosmetic Acupuncture?
Cosmetic acupuncture (also known as Aesthetic Acupuncture or Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture) treats the visible signs of ageing but also promotes a general improvement in overall health and vitality. It is a natural alternative to Botox but instead of focussing on just one area, cosmetic acupuncture works to improve the look of the entire face.
How Does It Work?
Through the stimulation of facial muscles, cosmetic acupuncture improves the health and appearance of your skin, overall muscle tone, tightens pores and increases circulation. When a needle is inserted, it stimulates a local immune response and the body reacts by sending red blood cells and important nutrients to the area.
There is also an increase in the production of collagen, the protein responsible for tightness and vibrancy of the skin. This helps to fill in wrinkles and plump the skin for a more youthful appearance.
What Does A Treatment Involve?
A 60 minute treatment involves the use of detoxification points, body points and facial points which are chosen based on the location of wrinkles, discolorations and areas of loose skin. The session ends with a relaxing facial massage to maximise the benefits of the treatment.
