What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?
Cosmetic acupuncture is also known as acupuncture facial rejuvenation, and sometimes called an ‘acupuncture facelift’. It’s the use of traditional acupuncture to slow the signs of aging in your face, tone up your skin, and to bring back that youthful glow to your cheeks.
What does the treatment entail?
Cosmetic acupuncture is the use of tiny needles placed in the face and on points of the body for the purpose of facial rejuvenation. It’s finished with a relaxing and skin-revitalising facial massage to help boost the effect of the needles.
Who should go for facial acupuncture?
It is a great choice for those who want to give their skin a little boost, but don’t want to inject Botox, fillers, or go the surgical route. Some of the benefits of choosing cosmetic acupuncture over chemical or surgical options include:
1. Cosmetic acupuncture increases the circulation in your skin. Your circulation tends to get a little sluggish as you age. Cosmetic acupuncture brings all those nutrient goodies like collagen and elastin back to where you want it – in your face and neck. The increased circulation translates into better skin tone, fewer fine lines, and even some lift around sagging jowls and baggy eyes.
2. It’s safe. No side effects here, other than the occasional bruise, which heals in less than a week. You don’t have to worry about scarring, lumps, or botched procedures. Your health benefits from the sessions, too. During a cosmetic acupuncture treatment, your acupuncturist also treats any health concerns that you have. They do this because beautiful skin is linked to good health. You can’t have beautiful, glowing skin if your health is suffering.
3. Cosmetic acupuncture is effective in treating acne, eczema, and rosacea, fine lines, wrinkles, baggy eyes and lack of glow and vitality in your skin.
4. It’s relaxing. Acupuncture increases the release of endorphins, those feel-good chemicals in your brain. So from the time you’re been treated and sometime days after your treatment, you’ll feel mellow, rested, and less stressed.
5. Cosmetic acupuncture is chemical-free. There are no acid peels, Botox, or injectable fillers involved.
6. You’ll spend less money on cosmetic acupuncture than if you go the plastic surgery or injectable route.
7. The effects of cosmetic acupuncture can last years with just minor tune-ups every six months or so.
8. There is no down time with cosmetic acupuncture. You can have a treatment at lunch and head back to work.
How does it work?
Many of the effects of ageing are due to a decrease in circulation. Based on the principles of traditional Chinese medicine, cosmetic acupuncture works to increase the circulation of energy and blood to the face. This increase in circulation causes an increase in the amount of nutrients, collagen and elastin moving to the facial area.
What are the results?
A more even, glowing complexion, a decrease in fine lines and softening of wrinkles, diminished puffiness around the eyes, and a general lifting of the face, including jowls.
How long does it take?
A course of treatment involves up to 10 visits over the course of 5/10 weeks.
Why is it so effective?
I incorporate full body acupuncture into our cosmetic treatments, so systemic imbalances that might affect your face are also resolved during your treatment.
