Cosmetic Acupuncture is slightly different to general Acupuncture as it targets motor points of the muscles to lift and tone the face, thereby creating a natural facelift.
We use cosmetic (facial) acupuncture to support collagen and elastin production in order to soften facial lines and wrinkles whilst also using acupuncture on other parts of the body to support your constitution.
Cosmetic acupuncture is likely to benefit the skin by:
Softening deep wrinkles and reducing fine lines
Increasing collagen and elastin production
Clearer skin and acne reduction
Reducing acne scarring and pitting
Improving blood circulation and evening skin tone
Lifting cheeks and sagging jowls
Reducing facial tension and stress
The initial treatment lasts for 90 minutes where a detailed health history is taken and you are given the space to ask questions. Along with acupuncture you will relax into a facial massage where gua sha and jade roller tools are used.
Follow up treatments are 75 minutes long, which also includes a gua sha and jade roller treatment to encourage lymphatic drainage and promote microcirculation to the face.
