Featured on Channel 4 TV series such as ’10 Years Younger’ and ‘How Not to Get Old’, Cosmetic Acupuncture is a totally natural and holistic anti-ageing treatment that works on lifting the face, particularly where the face begins to sag around the ‘jowls’ and the cheek area, reduce fine lines and wrinkles and promote collagen production. It is suitable for both men and women.
With cosmetic acupuncture, the meridians that either end or begin at the face are utilized to stimulate and balance the energy and at the same time, the underlying factors that contribute to the aging process are treated. This involves the insertion of hair-thin disposable needles into specific areas on the face, ears, hands, legs and body. The needles are inserted into the energy pathways or meridians to improve the flow of Qi (energy). As the movement of energy improves, a greater amount of energy and blood are circulated to the face, nourishing, hydrating, toning and diminishing the appearance of wrinkles. Visible results can be seen after the first treatment. Dramatic and long lasting changes generally occur with a series of sessions. Cosmetic acupuncture leaves you looking and feeling your best.
