FACIALENHANCE® Cosmetic Acupuncture

Botox injections to erase facial lines are commonplace today but facial acupuncture, a treatment that’s been used for thousands of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), is becoming increasingly popular as a natural alternative to plastic surgery and Botox.

From acne to ageing, cosmetic acupuncture boasts a host of facial benefits.

Acupuncture needles are a well-accepted treatment in the West for migraines or stress but facial acupuncture for aesthetic purposes is a more recent phenomenon.

A cosmetic acupuncture treatment will concentrate on points and muscles of the face to improve the elasticity of your skin and general overall appearance.

During the treatment, your Facial Enhancement Acupuncture practitioner will also needle constitutional points on your legs, arms and body; these are the points that will help to balance and harmonise your inner elements.

Studies published in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture in 1996 showed that: “…of 300 people who received Facial Acupuncture, 90% demonstrated marked results after only their first treatment.

What is involved in cosmetic acupuncture?

Acupuncture is founded on the fundamental belief that our health is governed by how effectively and efficiently our internal energy system is working.

When we are susceptible to illness and injury that energy system becomes impaired or compromised, the first step of cosmetic acupuncture gently places superfine needles in different parts of the body to reset and rebalance your Body.

During the treatment, your Facial Enhancement Acupuncture practitioner will also needle constitutional points on your legs, arms and body; these are the points that will help to balance and harmonise your inner elements.

The next step is Facial Acupuncture. During the facial acupuncture stage specially designed needles are placed strategically into the skin of the face, ears and scalp depending on the facial symptoms

This process rejuvenates the skin, improving collagen, elasticity and brightening the complexion.

Clinical research has shown the needles we use can significantly improve the appearance of acne scarring. Facial acupuncture has other advantages too: it hydrates the skin, encourages cellular regeneration and can help mitigate common unpleasant skin conditions such as psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema, and chloasma.

We follow this up with acupressure points and a firming/lifting facial massage.

The final step is  Anti-Ageing Face Mask & Cryoglobes

 

It’s a luxurious phase of the treatment that soothes, hydrates and moisturises the skin, allowing moisturising Hyaluronic acid to directly enter the facial pores and achieve deep anti-wrinkle and lifting benefits.

Using the Cryoglobes is not only a  relaxing experience, it also works to promote better circulation in the face, which in turn encourages a natural process of removing the toxins that inhibit toning and lifting. serum and SPF are then applied.

Wrinkle Reduction

Crow’s feet:

Cosmetic acupuncture can create firmer and more resilient skin around the eyes. By encouraging collagen and elastin production

Frown Lines:

When it comes to the forehead, acupuncture employs different techniques to address frown lines.  By making them more relaxed, and increase hydration, for a smoother forehead.

Nasolabial folds (or smile lines):

Facial Enhance Acupuncture will  enhance the firmness and volume of skin. We increase volume in the face giving a younger, fresher looking face and lifting the naso-labial folds. Facial Enhance Acupuncture enhances bone nutrient support and increase skin thickness.”

Lip lines and loss of volume:

There are some special techniques that can be used with cosmetic acupuncture to plump up the lips, naturally volumising the mouth muscles.

 

For best results – 1-2 treatments per week for 5-10 weeks and then move on to a maintenance programme

 

Scar reduction plan

Scar Reduction:

Needles are used to break down the scar tissue, which reduce it in size and thickness for a smoother more natural appearance. Also, the energy and blood flow through the scarred areas is re-established.

Women with Hysterectomy scars benefit greatly.

Anyone who has had body piercing scars, surgery scars, scars from trauma, benefit greatly from scar treatment. Facial scars are especially important to reduced in size.

 

For best results – 2 treatments per week for 5-10 weeks (depending upon the severity)

Acne Reduction Plan

Acne Reduction Plan:

Facial Enhance Acupuncture  can significantly help acne  skin. It  detoxifies the  skin  as well as improving the immunity of the skin against bacteria. I offer this with the addition of Blue LED light Therapy.

How long does the improvement last?

How long does the visible improvement last?

The effects of Facial Acupuncture Rejuvenation are cumulative and last up to 3-5 years after a course of 10 treatments, with maintenance.

Each client will be different, but usually each client will need maintenance treatments once per month or once per season depending on their homecare.

How should I prepare?

How should I prepare for my Cosmetic Acupuncture treatment?

Clients should eat (but not overeat) before an acupuncture treatment and should wear comfortable clothes. I will need to raise trouser legs to the knee. Refrain from rigorous exercise for at least two hours before and after treatment. Alcohol consumption is not advised. An evening Facial Acupuncture session may keep you awake at night, so I recommend a session earlier in the day if possible.

Whilst the needles are still in place, we can add our latest technology - Dermalux Flex MD. The Flex can significantly improve the results patients experience.
