Cosmetic acupuncture is more than just skin deep. Your face is a mirror of what's going on inside, so a cosmetic acupuncture treatment is really an inside/outside job.
How does facial acupuncture work?
It's a gentle, safe and holistic approach to anti-ageing. Unlike botox, cosmetic acupuncture encourages lifting and toning of the facial muscles naturally by treating the facial muscles around their origin and insertion sites. Facial acupuncture points are chosen based on their muscle function and area of the face involved.
Facial acupuncture treatments increase the flow of Qi and blood circulation to the face while simultaneously correcting health imbalances in the body.
In the case of fine lines and wrinkles, small needles are threaded superficially causing painless "microtrauma" signalling healing by sending fibroblasts, the precursors to collagen and elastin, to the targeted area. A similar technique is used for acne scarring, where small needles are inserted into the pitted scar to stimulate collagen and elastin production to repair the damage.
Very fine, high-quality Japanese needles are used to ensure maximum comfort and precision. There is no downtime or recovery necessary after each session. Cosmetic acupuncture has a cumulative effect, so we recommend a series of sessions for noticeable and lasting effects. As with traditional acupuncture treatments, body points will be chosen to address what is going on for you at the time of your treatment. The benefits are more than just a fresh face as each treatment reduces stress and promotes overall wellbeing.
Cosmetic Acupuncture is a great alternative for individuals who want a holistic approach to looking younger while improving their overall health. It is a great alternative to Botox.
If you feel good on the inside, you will look better on the outside!
