What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?
Cosmetic acupuncture may just be your solution to naturally glowing skin. Cosmetic acupuncture is a practice utilised widely in the Chinese Imperial Courts by empresses and concubines alike. Today cosmetic acupuncture has seen a resurgence as an alternative to Botox and dermal fillers.
Cosmetic or facial rejuvenation is an all-natural, safer, non-toxic and painless treatment which smooths skin, enhances radiance and reduces the signs of ageing from the inside out.
How does it work?
Cosmetic acupuncture aims to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This is done by inserting tiny sterile needles along acupuncture pathways, at muscle junctions and superficially on specified points on the face and body encouraging local blood flow, softening lines and muscle tone and movement. In contrast, Botox inhibits cell to cell communication which temporarily freezes facial muscles, inhibiting movement.
Like fillers minus the toxicity, cosmetic acupuncture can encourage collagen and elastin production. This is done by inserting (threading) tiny needles along fine lines. In response to this stimulation your body will produce more collagen and elastin, which have the effect of softening fine lines and wrinkles.
Cosmetic acupuncture doesn’t only target wrinkles, treatments can also lift the face, particularly where the face begins to sag around the ‘jowls’ and the cheek area.
How Else Does Cosmetic Acupuncture Help My Skin?
Cosmetic acupuncture can also address blemishes and scars. By addressing the internal cause of acne. Be it dietary or hormonal, cosmetic acupuncture can significantly reduce the occurrence of acne.
Whilst Botox and fillers may be a quick lunch time fix delivering temporary changes it only masks the underlying problems. Cosmetic acupuncture works on a deeper level by addressing your body’s underlying constitution, giving longer lasting benefits.
So, if you are after a more holistic, non-toxic individualised approach that also gives you the added benefit of addressing underlying imbalances why not give cosmetic acupuncture a go. To enjoy the maximum benefit of this treatment we recommend a course of 10 treatment taken weekly or bi weekly.
