What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?
Cosmetic Acupuncture, also known as Facial Acupuncture, is a natural, non-surgical treatment focussed on reducing the wrinkles and improving the muscle tone, elasticity and overall glow of the face. It is a totally natural anti-aging treatment, that can also benefit various skin conditions.
Results are achieved by inserting tiny needles into certain points of the face and supporting face muscles. Points on the body are also used to ensure a balanced treatment. Other benefits of having Facial Acupuncture that have been reported include improved sleep, having clearer eyes, feeling healthier and more balanced.
Is Cosmetic Acupuncture safe?
Compared to the invasive injections, fillers and chemical treatments that make up conventional anti-aging treatments such as Botox, which carry a range of possible side effects, Cosmetic Acupuncture is a safe alternative. By strategically placing needles into different areas of the face affected by collagen loss, you can actually create a wound in the skin and the body will naturally produce collagen to heal the wound. This step is additionally aided by the use of a select few skin products, designed to allow maximum absorption of collagen and other skin food. Some treatments may cause light bruising or bleeding of the skin. These symptoms will usually disappear within a few days.
Patients taking blood thinning medication or that have blood clotting disorders, may not be good candidates for Cosmetic Acupuncture.
