Cosmetic Acupuncture embraces the holistic approach that Chinese Medicine takes to your health, in addition to the facial points you can also be treated with body points to improve your overall constitution.
What will happen ?
A private treatment consists of just over an hour of relaxation with a consultation, then the treatment and normally a short facial massage with the addition of jade rollers.
Will it hurt ?
The needling is normally painless and the specialist needles used are hair fine and you probably won't even feel them being used. The needles used in lines for instance are 7mm long! There is a possibility of some minor bruising as the face is well fed by blood vessels, this usually is minor and fades after a few days.
Cosmetic acupuncture won't just concentrate on your face; the mind,body and soul approach that Chinese Medicine takes will also seek to improve your general health and constitution, you may find as a by product that your sleep or digestion improves - this is very common with an acupuncture treatment, as one part of your health improves so does another.
What can be treated ?
All lines, wrinkles and blemishes can be treated including those around the neck,eyes, nose and mouth. Forehead lines and the lines known as "11" lines above your nose can also be treated. Results can be seen after one treatment but it is more likely that a course of 6 treatments will yield a better outcome.
Multiple parts of your face can be treated in one treatment !!! You might be very surprised at how effective it is.
These treatments provide great value for money when you consider that one Botox injection starts at around £200.
