Who would like to look younger and more radiant without the potential side effects of Botox, expensive surgery and cupboards full of creams, lotions and potions that really don’t make much difference?
Cosmetic acupuncture for facial rejuvenation is the latest treatment in the anti-ageing war and the method of choice for many celebrities. It has increased in popularity recently due to a desire for more natural treatments and a fear of Botox. People are more reluctant to inject sausage poison into their face!
Cosmetic acupuncture is a completely natural and holistic approach to reducing lines and wrinkles. It works by lifting the whole face as well as targeting specific lines and wrinkles and, because body points are also used, it has the added benefit of a feeling of well-being. Patients often report that they feel healthier, sleep better, have brighter eyes, more energy and feel less stressed. Not many can argue with that!
Specific body and ear points can be used to aid detoxification of the body and stimulate the internal organs, thus improving circulation, digestion and repair and reducing stress.
When needles are inserted at certain points along the meridians, also known as energy channels, they cause micro trauma. This initiates the healing response, improves blood flow, stimulates cell re-growth and releases energy and endorphins. The result is an increase in the production of collagen, the protein that keeps the skin youthful and elastic. Facial acupuncture needles are extremely fine and do not cause pain when inserted into the skin.
