Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture can be defined as the use of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) theory and techniques, to enhance wellbeing and lifestyle in order to promote and maintain a reduction of the signs of aging.

 

It has been used for centuries by Chinese royalty to enhance the beauty of the ladies of the court. 

 

Aging and wrinkling are signs that the collagen and elastin matrix function has become impaired.  Needling techniques have been developed by ongoing clinical practice, to gently stimulate circulation within the superficial muscles and skin structures of the face.  This improved circulation promotes the production of collagen.  The aim of the treatment is to rebuild the collagen and elastin matrix to plump out and smooth fine lines and wrinkles.   

 

Muscle tone can be improved by support with massage and exercise.  All cosmetic acupuncture treatments include an aromatherapy massage of the neck and face using essential oils from organically grown and wild-crafted plants.

 

To achieve the best results, a course of 6-12 treatments is recommended, however, even after one treatment the skin may look rejuvenated and radiant.
