Facial acupuncture is based on the same principles as Traditional Chinese acupuncture. Inserting needles into certain points in the body, is understood to restore the flow of energy and therefore your overall health and wellbeing.
How does it work?
Needles are inserted into the face with minimal discomfort leaving no mark.
At first, platelets gather and stimulate fibroblasts which secrete collagen and elastin. They help to maintain tenseness and elasticity. Additionally, it increases blood flow towards any scars helping to repair any damage.
What are the benefits of Facial Acupuncture?
Smoothing and reducing wrinkles and lines.
Stimulating the local circulation of blood and lymph to the face, moisturising and nourishing the skin and fading of age spots
Improving skin elasticity and skin tone around the face and neck.
Promotes the tightening of pores
Lifts sagging skin, puffy and droopy eyelids, brightens the eyes
The effect is a long-term lift for the face. The treatment integrates body points, as well as points on the face, to improve your overall wellbeing.
How many treatments do you need?
We recommend patients to have 10 weekly or fortnightly treatments, and then top-up sessions for maintaining every few months. However, there are individual differences, so some patients will feel the benefits in less than 10 weeks.
Does it bruise or mark the face?
We use very fine and soft acupuncture needles then marks are very unlikely. In rare cases, bruises may occur. They will usually disappear within a week, so please be assured.
