Facial Acupuncture
Recently described by The Times as a “viable alternative to cosmetic surgery,” or the “acupuncture facelift”, facial acupuncture is a specialist treatment designed to improve the overall appearance and health of the skin. By using the holistic principles that are central to acupuncture practice, facial acupuncture aims to rebalance the body’s energy system (Qi); this brings vital energy to the facial muscles and skin, thereby improving the flow of blood. This consequently increases the local supply of nutrients to the skin, hydrates, firms and plumps the tissue and decreases the appearance of fine lines, blemishes and wrinkles.

Some of the effects of facial acupuncture include:
Controls acne
Tightens the pores
Brightens the eyes
Improves muscle tone
Relieves sinus congestion
Helps to reduce a double chin
Minimises or eliminates fine lines
Wrinkles are smoothed and appear less noticeable
Balances out facial colour and tone, smoothes blemishes
Lifts sagging skin, puffy or droopy eyelids
What a session of FA involves:-
Treatments are firmly based on a holistic approach to skin care and are entirely safe. Following a consultation, extremely fine needles are inserted into acupuncture points in the face. Needles are left in place for around 20 minutes, during which time gentle electro stimulation may also be used, depending upon whether this is indicated or not. Once needles are removed a Chinese Tuina facial massage completes the treatment. A series of 6 closely spaces sessions are necessary for best results, followed by regular monthly sessions to prolong and maintain the benefits.
