Facial rejuvenation acupuncture is a non-invasive treatment to improve skin & fight the signs of ageing.
Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years and although relatively new to the West, the Chinese have been using points on the face to combat the signs of ageing and to help with various skin conditions for many years. It was in use as early as the Song Dynasty (960AD - 1279AD) when the Empress and Emperor's concubines received Cosmetic Acupuncture.
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.
Unlike Botox, Cosmetic Acupuncture requires a course of treatment to show pronounced results. However, the whole face is treated along with body points which can assist a patient's health and wellbeing greatly by undertaking a series of treatments. Facial patients often report that they feel healthier, sleep better, have brighter eyes and feel more balanced.
The acupuncture points and the way that they are used in a Cosmetic Acupuncture session have all been chosen specifically with this overall achievement of wellbeing in mind.
//HOW DOES FACIAL ACUPUNCTURE WORK?
Cosmetic acupuncture stimulates natural production of collagen. The insertion of the tiny needles creates a type of “micro trauma” which initiates a healing response and collagen production.
Collagen supplements can be helpful, however the body distributes this collagen to where the body needs it the most – bones, cartilage, muscles & tissue. Cosmetic acupuncture causes the collagen to be produced in the face and not redistributed elsewhere.
Crystal Gua Sha massage is used alongside acupuncture to relax the facial muscles and increase the flow of blood to the skin which brings red blood cells, white blood cells & stimulates the production of collagen in order to rebuild the skin.
