Facial Acupuncture

Facial Enhance Cosmetic Acupuncture derives from Oriental Acupuncture systems that have been in use for centuries. Once the domain of the Courts and Elite of Asia to promote longevity and rejuvenation, Cosmetic Acupuncture is now finding a niche in modern times.

Balancing specific face and body points encourages vitality and harmony between the Mind and Body. Ultra-fine needles are skilfully placed directing flow through vital energetic pathways.

Benefits seen with Cosmetic Acupuncture include:

  • stimulation of natural collagen production
  • lifting and toning the facial muscles
  • softening the appearance of fine lines
  • reduces sagging jowls and helps eliminate puffiness
  • increase in circulation and energy flow encouraging a radiant complexion

Our face reflects our inner Essence, our emotional and physical wellbeing. Ageing gracefully with the joy of good health brings a presence of being that shines from within.

Acupuncture helps to redress internal imbalances, often expressed through such symptoms as:

  • fatigue
  • hormonal imbalances
  • poor sleep
  • digestive issues
  • pain and stress

These imbalances often show on our face as dark circles, puffy, tired dull looking skin

Combining specific body and facial points leaves you feeling and looking refreshed, revitalised and relaxed.

Results

Cosmetic Acupuncture stimulates the skin to repair itself, rejuvenating and regenerating the cells to improve collagen production naturally.

Improvements can be observed after the first treatment.

The International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported the findings of a study of 300 people where 90% of participants perceived a marked decrease of facial wrinkles with firmer fuller feeling skin after just one treatment.

Significant improvements continue to become more noticeable after a series of treatments. 10 to 12 sessions is recommended.

It is completely up to you the Client to choose a few sessions leading up to a special occasion or have the benefit of regular treatments throughout the year. Whatever works best for your lifestyle.

Does it hurt?

The needles used for Acupuncture are very fine disposable needles. There is very little sensation when needled with them and only a mild stinging sensation may be experienced on some occasions. Clients often remark how relaxed they feel after treatments.

What happens during a treatment

Before we proceed you will receive a health assessment and a discussion on facial areas you’d like to focus on and any questions you have regarding the procedure.

After cleansing your face, fine needles will be delicately placed in specific points on the facial muscles and body points. The needles are retained for around 20 minutes.

Once removed a combination of facial massage using high quality natural oils and jade roller techniques compliments the soothing relaxing experience.
