We offer both Cosmetic and Therapeutic facial acupuncture performed by our resident Acupuncturist, Justine Dennett.
Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years and although relatively new to the West, the Chinese has been using facial acupuncture to combat signs of ageing and help with various conditions for years.
Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture
Cosmetic acupuncture is a completely natural holistic yet effective anti-ageing treatment to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Tiny, fine needles are inserted in specific points on the face, stimulating collagen, increasing blood circulation and repairing and renewing skin, resulting in noticeably invigorated and youthful skin.
Known as the “Non-Surgical Facelift” it is safer than plastic surgery or botox injections and has no side effects, toxicity, inflammation, or recovery time.
It can be used to reduce:
- Deep wrinkles or fine lines
- Sagging skin
- Bags under the eyes
- Drooping eyelids
- Double chin
- Large pores
- Dry skin
As with all acupuncture treatments, your first visit is longer than your follow-up visits as the therapist will ask you questions to find the underlying cause and work out a treatment strategy specifically designed to you.
Although results can be seen from as early as the very first treatment, effects are most noticeable and lasting from the sixth session. For the Best results a course of 10-12 treatments are required. Each person responds differently, depending on his or her condition, constitution and lifestyle.
It is recommended to supplement the Cosmetic Acupuncture with a good skincare regime and a healthy diet.
