Cosmetic acupuncture, also known as facial acupuncture, is a natural and non-toxic way to minimise fine lines and wrinkles and renew the glow of the skin to provide a more youthful look to the face.
The treatment includes a detailed diagnosis of your health and face, taking into consideration classical Chinese medicine philosophy. Treatments will start with a body treatment to maintain and harmonise the body, followed by the insertion of tiny, hair-like needles into the face to increase the circulation of blood and qi to increase the production of collagen in the skin. Once the needles are removed, the treatment finishes with a relaxing facial massage.
Cosmetic acupuncture is a safer, less invasive and more holistic way of addressing facial signs of ageing. It should leave you with a feeling of well-being, with enriched skin and with your own radiant beauty enhanced.
For maximum benefit a twelve-week course is ideal, followed by monthly or six weekly treatments thereafter to retain the benefits long term.
