What does the treatment involve?
A series of tiny, super fine acupuncture needles are inserted locally into points of the face, aimed at stimulating the production of collagen and elastin to reduce wrinkles & fine lines whilst firming and toning the muscles of the face. Constitutional body acupuncture points are also used at the same time.
This is based on the Chinese Medicine theory that if something is out of balance with the body- it will show in the face. For example Kidney deficiency may present with dark circles under the eyes or Liver disharmony may show redness and inflammation in the face. Therefore, by diagnosing the face, along with other diagnostic tools like tongue and pulse, we are able to gain a full understanding of your issues and work on the whole body to bring you back into balance. As the saying goes beauty comes from within and when we are internally healthy this will radiate out through the face.
We have a variety Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture options (see our fees page) and your session may also include a Chinese Herbal mask, Facial massage, Gua Sha, Jade skin roller and Acutonics® sound vibration.
