WHAT IS COSMETIC FACIAL ENHANCEMENT ACUPUNCTURE?
Cosmetic facial enhancement acupuncture is a completely natural and holistic treatment that helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) techniques are applied to enhance well-being and promote a reduction in the signs of aging. This holistic yet effective anti-ageing approach has become the natural alternative of celebrities often recognised as “a whole body anti-ageing facial”.
Cosmetic facial enhancement acupuncture works by stimulating several crucial healing mechanisms. It increases local blood and lymph circulation to the face thereby increasing the oxygen flow which nourishes the skin and accelerates the removal of cellular waste. This stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin which improves skin tone, and elasticity that helps your skin look it’s most youthful.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR TREATMENT SESSION?
At the first appointment, a consultation is carried out to assess areas of the face you would like to improve as well as a check to make sure their are no health issues or medication that could effect your treatment.
The highest quality fine needles are placed on specific points on the face, forehead and ears to create micro-punctures in the skin surface during facial enhancement acupuncture.
Some body points may also be used in your arms and legs to help harmonise your internal organs and support the facial treatment.
The needles are left in place for approximately 20 minutes while you relax in peaceful surroundings.
It is recommended to have a course of 10 weekly treatments (twice a week for optimum results) then maintenance/top up every 4-6 weeks thereafter.
At the end of the facial enhancement acupuncture treatment you will receive a collagen revival mask and LED lamp treatment to further enhance results.
