What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?
Cosmetic Acupuncture is a popular alternative to many invasive skin treatments, it is far less costly than and is completely natural. There is no lengthy recovery time and there are no side effects or risks which are associated with some alternatives. Cosmetic Acupuncture is holistic and natural and favoured by many celebrities, including Kim Kardashian, Madonna, Millie Mackintosh and Gwyneth Paltrow.
How does it work?
As we mature, the quality of Qi and blood in the skin and underlying facial muscles slowly begins to decrease, we produce less collagen and fine lines and wrinkles appear. As facial muscles gradually lose their skin tone our skin sags and looks tired which are all natural signs of ageing.
Cosmetic Acupuncture involves the use of specialised Acupuncture techniques which target areas of the face nourishing facial muscles, the skin surface, wrinkles and sagging skin. Cosmetic Acupuncture hydrates and tones but also boosts the skin’s supply of nutrients and oxygen, this decreases the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and blemishes. The overall result gives you a fresh, more youthful appearance.
Tiny needles of just 0.16mm are inserted causing a micro-trauma to the skin, as the body repairs this trauma new collagen, made from protein and what gives our skin fullness and elasticity, is produced filling out the wrinkles to give a younger, softer appearance.
Benefits of Cosmetic Acupuncture are:
a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
an increase in the plumpness of the skin
a more lifted face and neck
jowls and double chin look less baggy
a stimulation of collagen in the skin improves the bounce and suppleness of the skin
improved skin texture
a tightening of pores
improvement of acne and hormonal spots
a more even skin colour
Are there any side effects?
There are no negative side effects, some people bruise slightly which will disappear in a couple of days.
How often should I have the treatment?
Although a course of six treatments are recommended, often results can been seen between the first and second session. A top up is advised every three months with maintenance treatments prolonging the result for between five to ten years.
What to expect:
Please allow up to 90 minutes per treatment. During the initial consultation a full medical history and skin analysis is taken where we will discuss what your concerns are about your face and what you are hoping to achieve from Cosmetic Acupuncture. The treatment is carried out fully clothed on my very comfortable and heated treatment bed where you can get cosy under a fleecy blanket.
A gentle cleanse and tone using the Tropics range is carried out before fine needles are placed in specific areas for between 20 to 30 minutes, allowing plenty of time to unwind and relax. . Further needles are inserted into the ear to restore balance and detoxify the system.
Once the needles have been removed you will enjoy an anti ageing Gua Sha face massage using a nourishing aromatherapy facial oil to the face and neck area to improve lymphatic drainage and further plump and firm the skin.
What Cosmetic Acupuncture Isn't
Cosmetic acupuncture is not a replacement for Botox or Fillers. Acupuncture is not able to plump sagging facial muscles dramatically as the treatment does not insert product into the skin to fill out these areas, nor can it paralyse facial muscles in order freeze our natural lines. What acupuncture can do is gently improve and soften the signs of ageing, improve the complexion and treat other health issues which maybe affecting your outward appearance. Acupuncture is 100% natural and safe with no adverse side effects.
Please allow between 75 and 90 minutes for a full single treatment, a single treatment is £47.50.
It is advised to book one treatment a week for six weeks and then a maintenance treatment at around three months. As not all clients’ have the budget for weekly sessions please be assured that fortnightly and monthly sessions will still show an improvement in the look of your skin.
Each person will respond differently depending upon their lifestyle, stress and general health. A good diet, fluid intake, smoking, amount of exercise can all affect the outcome of treatment.
Cosmetic Acupuncture is not advised during pregnancy, for pituitary disorders, heart disorders, diabetes mellitus and hypertension and for individuals with a pacemaker, low platelet count or those taking blood thinners.
