What is cosmetic acupuncture?
Cosmetic acupuncture otherwise known as facial rejuvination is aimed at treating your skin naturally. cosmetic acupuncture is an alternative therapy to harsh cosmetic treatments such as botox/collagen injections, fillers, micro-dermabrasion, photo rejuvenation and chemical peels.
cosmetic acupuncture is designed to reverse the signs of ageing through a natural,painless and non-toxic method. unlike other methods this unique treatment is able to treat the body internally and externally, giving you a healthy glow that other methods can't match!
How does it work?
As we get older our collagen production decreases, which results in fine lines and wrinkles appearing on our face. Collagen is a natural protein component of the skin that acts like a scaffold and the main building block for skin cells and tissue which helps keep the skin firm and supple.
Cosmetic acupuncture can help increase collagen production by painlessly inserting fine needles into specific points of the face, neck and head. These points are able to stimulate skin cells and promote blood circulation which in turn increases the production of collagen and elastin. Acupuncture is able increase blood supply to the face which helps tighten pores, increase muscle tone and improve facial colour giving a rosey like appearance. Cosmetic Acupuncture is also able to increase lymphatic circulation which can help clear your skin from toxins and fluid retention.
At Natural Healing each patient is given a personalised treatment for their specific skin condition. A consultation is given before the treatment which includes an overall medical history, pulse-taking and an examination of facial features. The key difference between Cosmetic Acupuncture and other cosmetic treatments is that it aims to treat the underlying condition that is causing issues with your skin. Because boosting your inner health can reflect dramatically on your skin.
What is involved in the treatment?
Before we start the treatment a full medical history is taken of the patient in order to direct the treatment towards the patients concerns.
We begin the treatment by cleansing and massaging the face in order to relax and purify the skin. Acupuncture is then applied to the body and face depending on the patient's main concerns.
The jade rollers are then used to cool down the skin, tighten pores and increase muscle tone. Organic essential oils such as; Rosip, Q10, vitamin E, rose and jojoba are applied to assist in rejuvenating skin cell production. Micro facial cupping is then applied to increase blood circulation and oxygen supply to the face.
A customised organic herbal mask is then applied to hydrate the skin and pores. We finish off by applying an organic hydrating skin lotion with light acupressure massage to relax the mind, body and spirit.
After the first treatment patients usually see a fresh glow, increase circulation and energy in their face. Results may keep improving daily as new collagen cells are created.
To achieve best results 10-12 consecutive treatments are needed. We recommend coming in twice a week for the first 6 treatments and then once a week for the remaining 4-6 treatments. We offer package deals for a course of 6 treatments.
