What is Facial rejuvenation Cosmetic Acupuncture?

 

Facial acupuncture has been recorded to be used by the Chinese since 960 ad, by the Chinese Empress herself. Facial acupuncture is a holistic, natural, and safe approach to improve your skin from the inside and the outside.

 

Facial rejuvenation Acupuncture Benefits

 

Reported benefits may include: reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, improved muscle tone, improved circulation to the facial skin, better skin complexion and texture, increased skin elasticity, a reduction in dark circles under the eyes, and an overall increased sense of health and wellbeing.

Studies published in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture, 1996, showed that, ” of 300 people who received facial acupuncture, 90 % demonstrated marked results after only their first treatment.”

 

How does it Facial rejuvenation Acupuncture work?

Extremely fine needles are used in points on the body; with the aim to improve inner health and aid relaxation, and points on the face; to target fine lines, wrinkles, improve circulation, and increase elasticity of the skin and tone of the facial muscles. It is reported that facial acupuncture increases the water and oil content in the skin and aids the skins natural production of collagen to lift out the fine lines and wrinkles.

Detox points can also be used through acupuncture points on the ear, which is believed to target organs such as the liver, impairment of the liver can lead to wrinkles, dark spots and a dull complexion, kidneys, impairment can lead to accelerated age, contributing to wrinkles and thin hair, the spleen, impairment of the spleen can lead to skin losing tone, sagging, and puffiness of the face and eyes, the heart, points can be used to calm the heart as stress can cause wrinkles, the lungs, impairment of respiration can lead to dryness of the skin (Jonathan Hobbs, Facial Rejuvenation Cosmetic Acupuncture Course, May 2017).

 

Does it work as well as Botox®?

The results from facial acupuncture are more natural, restoring a vibrant glow to the face and hence helps you look your best.  Facial rejuvenation acupuncture doesn’t use any chemicals or anything artificial.

Results from facial rejuvenation acupuncture are not as instant (or dramatic) as alternative cosmetic procedures (for example Botox or facelifts).  After a course of treatment, you should look like a rejuvenated and healthier version of yourself, as if you have just returned from relaxing holiday. 

It is much safer than alternative ways to reduce your lines and wrinkles.  It is less intrusive and has many other benefits, not just your appearance.  It is becoming more and more popular with many celebrities now turning to acupuncture to fight the signs of aging.

Claire and Sarah are also members of the Acupuncture Association for Chartered Physiotherapists (AACP) and have completed the Facial Rejuvenation Cosmetic Acupuncture Foundation Course to deliver safe, effective and up to date treatment.

 

What happens during treatment?

On your first appointment a full assessment of your lifestyle, problem areas, goals and expectations will be explored to guide treatment.

All make up will need to be removed prior to your beauty treatment. 

For facial rejuvenation acupuncture to be administered, you will be laying down on a plinth, with pillows for comfort.  We will provide a disposable headband to keep your hair away from your face during the treatment.  You will want to wear comfortable clothing and may need to expose your lower legs and arms. 

Depending on your individual needs, Claire and Sarah may decide initially to carry out a detox treatment which would involve acupuncture needles being inserted into your ears and lower leg.  This is to support your overall health, improving circulation, complexion and your general wellbeing.

 

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

For your fine lines and wrinkles, several needles will be placed into these areas, concentrating on where you consider to be most problematic.  These needles will be left in for a set time depending on your needs and then slowly removed.  There may be some discomfort whilst the needles are being inserted.

After all needles are removed your treatment will finish with a soothing facial massage.  This is to increase local skin circulation and aid treatment.

It is best not to have your treatment around the same time as a big social event as there is a possibility of small red marks or bruising where the needles have been.  If your skin is partially red after treatment, arnica or a jade roller will be used to seal the skin and complete the healing process.

Results vary between individuals but accumulate over a course of sessions.  Treatment will vary between individuals but generally it is recommended to have weekly or twice weekly for an initial 6-12 sessions then once we have achieved the desired result this will need to be maintained with monthly or every 2-3 months.
