Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture
Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture- is a specialist branch of acupuncture used to gently counteract the signs of ageing and bring renewed vitality to the face. It is a wonderful treatment choice for those wishing to enhance their natural beauty and overall wellbeing. Many people choose Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture as a safer, less invasive alternative to cosmetic surgery and botox and as a way to truly draw out their inherent beauty.
How does it work ?
Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture involves the insertion of numerous very fine needles throughout the face and neck. This stimulates the presence of our body’s repair cells and increases production of collagen, the material that gives our tissues firm structure. Insertion of these fine needles in Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture therefore mimics our body’s natural, wound repair process.
Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture promotes blood circulation to the skin and lymph drainage, resulting in a more radiant glow. Because acupuncture points positioned within the major muscles of the face are used- this has the effect of ‘exercising’ these muscles, equivalent to toning the body’s major muscles using a gym. This leaves the face more toned and firm in appearance.
Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture is based in Traditional Chinese Medicine. This means that detoxification and reduction of water retention also forms part of the treatment, alongside drawing on our body’s reserves of Qi to replenish and enhance the tissues of the facial landscape.
How many treatments will I need ?
Most people having regular treatments will notice a difference after 4-6 treatments. Treatment sessions are an hour and a half in length. Everyone is different and changes depend on skin type, age and other health factors. I recommend a course of 8-12 weekly treatments tailored to individual requirements. Thereafter, regular top ups every 4-6 weeks ensure this worthwhile investment is maintained.
