Natural Facial Rejuvenation

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a cheaper and safer alternative to botox and invasive cosmetic surgery. The procedure can help reduce under eye bags, crow's feet and wrinkles caused by ageing and stress. The procedure helps to improve muscle tone and dermal contraction especially in the face and neck, it has been shown to increase collagen production and aids in its dispersal thus helping to firm the skin and fill out wrinkles. Bags and sagging around the eyes, face and neck are significantly reduced and toned as the body’s natural metabolism is greatly improved by these treatments. This results in reduced puffiness often to the point of elimination.

If the thought of needles fill you with dread the system can be adapted to avoid their use. However we do achieve the best results with the use of extremely fine, virtually painless, intra-dermal needles.

 

Cosmetic Acupuncture

As Acupuncture can have a profound effect on the regulation of hormones in the body, conditions such as acne and overly dry skin can be quite improved. By substantially increasing the circulation of blood, lymph and Qi to the head, these treatments noticeably improve the complexion, giving healthy facial colouring and a tightening of the pores. Stress and habitual expressions are transformed resulting in a remarkably younger, calmer and less worn looking face with which to meet the world.

Inner beauty, vitality and serenity are all obvious visual benefits, whilst many pre-existing health conditions are reduced and improved, acupuncture works by treating the whole body and addressing the underlying causes of ageing and disease.

In a session lasting about one hour, very fine sterile needles are inserted into acupuncture points on the face. This boosts circulation, helps the lymphatic system eliminate toxins and stimulates the production of new collagen. Each point helps to tighten muscles at the jaw, neck, and smile lines. Sometimes the needles are gently stimulated by an electrical current. As a result of acupuncture treatment the skin tightens and becomes smoother in appearance. Fine lines may be entirely erased, deeper lines are softened and reduced, and bags around the neck and eyes are firmer.

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is far less costly than cosmetic surgery and it is completely safe, virtually painless and has no side effects or risk of disfigurement, unlike surgery that may have an extended recovery period with major swelling and discolouration. Whilst it cannot reshape your face, it is a more subtle rejuvenation that effectively takes the years away safely and naturally whilst improving overall health and well-being.

Studies published in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture showed that out of 300 test cases who received facial rejuvenation, 90% noticed significant improvement after one course of treatments. Research shows that acupuncture stimulates the flow of blood and energy through the skin in the face, and helps to hydrate the skin, boost the skin's supply of nutrients and oxygen and reduce the signs of ageing.

Gua Sha Facial

Gua Sha Facial

 

Gua Sha is an ancient therapy practiced in traditional Chinese medicine that is used to relieve the stagnation of blood that obstructs surface tissues and inhibits organ function. We use Gua Sha gently as part of the facial rejuvenation system as it leaves the skin looking smooth, fresh and healthy. The different shaped tools fit snugly into the contours of the face helping to eliminate toxins from below the surface of the skin and improve texture as well as tone. Gua Sha treatment can be used alone to compliment a course of facial acupuncture, or to enhance any other beauty facial. Please ask your therapist for more details.

More about Gua Sha and new modalities

Cosmetic Acupuncture, sometimes called Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture has been recently described by The Times as a "viable alternative to cosmetic surgery” and the "acupuncture facelift". Cosmetic acupuncture is a non-invasive procedure designed to treat fine lines and wrinkles, as well as improving the overall appearance and tone of the skin.

This system has attracted great attention in the last few years, especially in the big cities like London, New York and Los Angeles. Said to be the secret beauty trick of a number of celebrities including Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow, Victoria Beckham, Demi Moore and Tom Cruise.

One session of Facial Rejuvenation acupuncture includes localized facial needling, specific body point needling and a gua sha facial massage, at a cost of £75.00. Clients can immediately see the benefits after just one treatment.

To achieve maximum results a course of 10 treatments are recommended, bookable at a cost of £600.00, which can be paid for in two parts. Included in this offer is a full consultation with our Chinese herbalist and an Aroma-therapist who will create anti ageing creams specific for your skin type and needs.

NB It is very important to understand that Cosmetic Acupuncture is a speciality field within acupuncture and NOT all acupuncturists are trained OR qualified.
