Cosmetic Acupuncture is built on the same principles as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) which dates back thousands of years. Cosmetic Acupuncture offers a natural and holistic approach to rejuvenating the complexion and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Cosmetic Acupuncture may have the following benefits:
- Reduction or erasure of fine lines
- Softening of deep lines
- Increased collagen production
- Improved skin and muscle tone
- Reduction in the size of under-eye bags
- Reduction of dark circles
- Lifting of drooping eyelids
- Reduction of double chins
- Brightening of the eyes
- Relaxation of the face
- A healthy complexion
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine theory, aging and wrinkles begin internally from a constitutional imbalance and a fundamental weakness of qi. Qi circulates throughout the body within pathways known as meridians. This qi provides nourishment, support and energy to every cell, tissue, muscle and organ within the body.
Cosmetic Acupuncture uses small sterile, disposable needles on the face and body. This stimulates the local facial tissues and also works to address any underlying imbalance so that you not only look great, but feel healthier too. We treat the whole body, because what happens in your skin is a reflection of what is going on in your body.
Cosmetic Acupuncture can be used to treat a number of skin conditions including acne, eczema, rosacea, age spots and blotchy skin.
The overall effect of Cosmetic Acupuncture is not only improved elasticity, tone and a youthful complexion but also the enhanced feeling of health and harmony.
For maximum benefit and lasting results a course of 12 weekly treatments is recommended. Maintenance treatments every 2 or 3 months are recommended following a course.
