Facial or cosmetic acupuncture is a safe and natural way to revitalise your complexion. It stimulates the micro circulation of the blood and promotes the production of collagen, which is what plumps up skin, and there by reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Most people find treatment relaxing and have a sense of overall wellbeing afterwards.
What Happens in Treatment
A cosmetic acupuncture treatment includes a brief consultation in order to uncover and treat internal or lifestyle related conditions which may be affecting your skin. This is followed by a facial massage after which twelve to sixteen very fine needles are gently inserted on various points on the face and neck. Two to four additional needles are used, usually below the elbow or knee, to treat your whole system. Needles are retained for about twenty five minutes, gently stimulated at regular intervals then removed. Treatment is completed with gentle cooling action of the jade roller.
