An inner and an outer glow !
Facial acupuncture is an all encompassing treatment involving mind and body, using points for relaxation on the body as well as the face.
It is a safe alternative to Botox and is used to treat lines and wrinkles on the face.
Up to a 100 needles can be used, so there may be some discomfort to be expected, but the effects are beneficial – the small intradermal needles are used along the nasal labial lines causing a small trauma to increase collagen repair to the injury site – a slight reddening or flush to the skin is to be expected afterwards, but results are good. Three treatments show a significant difference, but a course of ten are recommended with a monthly follow up.
After the needles are taken out, a deep tissue massage follows using a professional strength rehydration serum, which penetrates deep into the superficial layers of the skin, leaving the client with a healthy glow and a feeling of well being and calm.
Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years and although relatively new to the West the Chinese have been using points on the face to combat the signs of ageing and to help with various skin conditions for many years.
Up to 100 needles can be used, so some discomfort is to be expected, but as with acupuncture there will be a feeling or relaxation and calm post treatment
Studies published in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture in
1996 showed that of 300 people who received Facial Acupuncture,
90% demonstrated marked results after only their first treatment.
