What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?
Beauty Acupuncture (also called Cosmetic Acupuncture) has (by those in the know) been more and more sought after in recent times as one of the best natural alternatives or complements to more conventional anti-ageing treatments. Since it addresses both the causes and the effects of premature ageing, the results may be seen not only as intense and long-lasting but also as ultimately cost-effective.
What actually happens during Cosmetic Acupuncture Therapy?
Our particular treatment combination incorporates acupuncture, shiatsu, facial massage and reflexology. Each individual client's face is effectively analysed and ‘charted’ so that acupuncture needles can be applied to specific points and areas. The effect of this is to stimulate the body's ability to self-heal by enhancing blood and lymphatic flow. This accelerates the natural drainage of toxins, increasing oxygen and nutrient surge to the skin so that collagen production is increased and elastin fibres are strengthened. The overall anti-inflammatory response of the skin is enhanced so that eye area puffiness is reduced and facial muscles are stimulated, increasing their tone and suppleness.
In addressing more profoundly the actual causes of premature ageing, Beauty Acupuncture both prevents the formation of new wrinkles and minimises existing lines by enhancing the skin’s innate ability to regenerate itself, creating a plumper, smoother, more radiant and rejuvenated face.
