Cosmetic acupuncture is a non-invasive treatment that involves using acupuncture to improve skin and fight the ageing process. Proponents claim that cosmetic acupuncture can help reduce wrinkles, diminish fine lines, remove age spots, and lift droopy eyelids.
Acupuncture stimulates the natural production of collagen. The insertion of the tiny needles creates a type of "micro trauma" which initiates a healing response and collagen production.
Through a micro-wound healing response, it addresses multiple factors of ageing – from smoothing lines, to enhancing the firmness and volume of skin.
Acupuncture can also increase oxygenation levels though microcirculation which can aid detoxification and help prevent facial puffiness.
Facial rejuvenation acupuncture can influence the health of the skin, working on more than just the superficial signs of premature ageing.
Crystal Gua Sha massage is used alongside acupuncture to relax the facial muscles and increase the flow of blood to the skin, bringing red & white blood cells to the skin whilst stimulating the production of collagen in order to rebuild the skin.
3 Step Process
Fine needles are inserted on the face and possibly hands and feet for grounding. Relax whilst they do their work with the option of listening to some anti-ageing hypnosis at the same time.
2. Tighten & lift
A warming roller massages the face whilst the heat shrinks the collagen to tighten and lift. The sensation is very enjoyable and nurturing.
3. Lymphatic flush
We use jade gua sha tools or crystal rollers to massage the skin. This increases the micro-circulation, boost the complexion and flushes the lymphatics in the face.
How often do you need to have treatments?
OPTION 1: WEEKLY
If you have a particular area of your appearance that you want to work on, weekly treatments are recommended for 6-10 treatments.
OPTION 2: OCCASIONAL TREAT
You may wish to give yourself an occasional treat every month or couple of months for maintenance or before a big event.
