Having a face lift does not necessarily mean going under the knife. Before going through this difficult painful procedure one can decide on having Face Acupunture. Facial Acupuncture combines traditional Chinese acupuncture with specialised facial acupuncture to help you look and feel rejuvenated and healthy. It works internally to optimise your health and at the same time enhances the appearance of your skin – true anti-aging.
What does it involve?
This method involves the application of sterile needles on specific points on the face, increasing the stimulation of collagen fibres, improving circulation and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Facial acupuncture points are situated on meridians, which channel energy throughout the body. By applying needles into these specific points the Qi energy gets stimulated. Not only does it increase collagen production, it also increases blood flow to the skin and at the same time it unblocks and balances the meridians connected to specific organs.
The procedure is very relaxing and not painful.
What are the benefits?
Facial acupuncture is both preventative and corrective and so you can begin at any age. The treatment can slow down the aging process, by boosting collagen and improving the health of your skin and body. The treatments also help to turn back the clock, softening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in brighter skin and a more youthful appearance.
Some of the benefits are:
- Minimises the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Reduces frown lines
- Tightens pores
- Increases the production of collagen
- Improves muscle tone
- Relieves tension in facial muscles
- Improves skin health
- Slows down the aging process
You can experience a brighter complexion after just one session. It is however, recommended that a series of treatments are needed to obtain optimum results. The number of treatments required will depend on the client’s needs.
Sessions last approximately 30 minutes. Facial acupuncture is not recommended for pregnant women.
