...let your natural
beauty shine through...
Facial Cosmetic Acupuncture is a natural and holistic anti-ageing treatment that aims to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Facial Cosmetic Acupuncture is not just about how we look and how we want other people to see us, it is about how we feel inside and how those feelings express themselves on our face. This treatment also helps Body, Mind and Spirit in a way that it strengthens total wellbeing.
This treatment also works on lifting the face, particularly where the face begins to sag around the eyes and cheek area. The treatment concentrates on points and muscles of the face in order to improve elasticity of the skin and general overall appearance. Decline of oestrogen level in the body and hormones play a key role in the appearance of our skin. Acne type hormonal imbalances, stress related skin problems and ageing are to name some of the problems that may arise.
During the treatment face and body points are used. These are the points that will help to balance and harmonise inner elements, improve health and wellbeing as well as improve facial appearance.
Facial Cosmetic Acupuncture is a natural treatment working with body so improvements are not instant but over a course of treatments very significant, often amazing.
A course of 12 treatments is prescribed in most cases - two sessions per week for the first 3 weeks, and one session a week for the remaining 6 weeks. Monthly retainer treatment is advised after that to keep up with good results and slow down ageing.
The main benefit is that almost instantly and over the following days the skin condition and tone improves, pores become less visible, and clients usually starting to 'shine' through. After just 2-3 treatments there should be a notice in reduction of fine lines and puffiness. After further treatments, as the facial muscles tighten, there is more dramatic improvement to the contour of the face. One area that responds particularly well to treatment is the nasal labial fold, the laughter line on both sides of your nose. After just few treatments these lines can significantly soften.
Main benefits of the treatment:
- increases blood circulation which improves oxygenation of the skin, enabling detoxification and lymph circulation. This improves skin tone, colour and texture
- stimulates collagen production that pumps up the skin
- stimulates muscles of the face in order to tighten them up
A single micro needle makes a miniscule wound in the skin, although there is no damage outwardly to your face and you cannot see it or feel it as it is on such a tiny scale. Despite this minute damage, the body’s natural healing mechanism kicks in.
Collagen and elastin are produced in response to the needle entering the top layer of the skin. The existing collagen has not been removed by this process and the new production adds to the levels that already exist.
This cosmetic treatment provides two major benefits:
Firstly, skin needling in this way stimulates collagen production and, as a result, treatment can effectively benefit a range of issues caused by lack of collagen:
Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
Acne scars and pitted scar reduction
Secondly, skin micro needling massively improves the penetration of creams, gels and oils. As the products are absorbed far more successfully – their performance is boosted and you will see enhanced results, leading to healthier, smoother, softer and more radiant skin.
