Acupuncture including Cosmetic Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years. It’s relatively new to the West but the Chinese have been using Cosmetic Acupuncturepoints on the face to fight the signs of ageing and to help with various conditions. It was in use as early as the Song Dynasty (960AD – 1279AD) when the Empress and Emperor’s concubines received Cosmetic Acupuncture.
So, what kind of results can be achieved? Unlike skin fillers, which freeze skin and carries a large number of possible side effects, Cosmetic Acupuncture encourages the skin’s own repairing mechanisms so it can bounce back, like a baby’s skin. It is a totally natural and holistic anti-ageing treatment that aims to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Cosmetic Acupuncture will require a course of treatment to show pronounced results. However, the whole face is treated and as body points are also used, a patient’s health and wellbeing can be greatly improved by undertaking a series of treatments. Facial patients often report that they feel healthier, sleep better, have brighter eyes and feel more balanced!
The Cosmetic Acupuncture does not focus on skin exclusively, the acupuncture points have all been chosen specifically with the achievement of overall well-being. But it can help with lifting the face, especially where the face begins to sag around the ‘jowls’ and the cheek area, rather than simply targeting wrinkles.
Over a course of treatments patient can not only expect to be looking more radiant, but will also start to feel more balanced and happy. When patients feel more in control of their body, mind and spirit, their self image improves and they can also start to address other issues in their life.
