Cosmetic acupuncture aims to enhance beauty naturally and from within by stimulating the body’s own natural healing, rejuvenation and detoxification processes. It is very safe and has been shown to increase collagen, improve the elasticity of the skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Research has proven that it increases the water and oil content of the skin, enhancing its quality and appearance. Clients are also frequently observed to have brighter eyes and a more radiant overall complexion. Put simply – they look younger.
When administered carefully, this is a very safe, natural and effective treatment. It leaves clients very satisfied with the results. Our cosmetic acupuncture is done by Marie Roberts who is a Chartered Physiotherapist with extensive anatomical knowledge and over 10 years experience in administering acupuncture to the face for conditions such as Facial/Bells Palsy, Trigeminal Neuralgia, headaches, sinus conditions and jaw problems.
Facial cosmetic acupuncture has been clinically proven to work and studies published in
the Journal of Acupuncture showed that out of 300 people who had facial acupuncture, 90% demonstrated marked improvements after one session. Although it is important to note that it has a cumulative effect and usually works best with an intense twice-weekly start to treatment over the first few weeks. For best results, a course of 8-12 treatments within the first 1-3 months is normally recommended, followed by top-ups every 6-8 weeks.
Whilst the physiology of ageing is a continuous natural process, cosmetic acupuncture is considered to be a natural and holistic way of reducing the signs of getting older. It has become an increasingly popular choice as people seek more natural and holistic ways to improve their appearance.
