Cosmetic Acupuncture, also known as Facial Rejuvenation is a totally natural and holistic anti ageing treatment which helps stimulate collagen and increase circulation of blood flow to the skin.
It’s a gentle, non toxic treatment which results in helping to gently fill out and soften fine lines and wrinkles, giving a fresher, natural and more youthful look.
According to an ancient Chinese proverb, “Where Qi goes, blood flows”. They were aware that acupuncture increased the circulation of blood to the tissues, especially the face. It therefore produces a more youthful, toned & rejuvenated looking skin and also promotes longevity.
When micro needles are inserted into areas of collagen loss, like frown and laughter lines, it creates a micro trauma. This results in production of collagen, which helps to gently fill out these lines. In addition to this, Liver spots as a result of sun damage or ageing benefit also.
Any underlying problems that may be contributing to the ageing of the skin are also addressed by using specific acupuncture points around the body.
A course of 6-10 treatments are recommended, at either twice weekly or weekly intervals. More favourable results are obtained with consistent, regular appointments. A 2013 study published in Evidence Based Complementary Medicine, found that with five treatments over three weeks, there were positive changes in facial elasticity.
