Facial Acupuncture

The history of facial acupuncture dates back over 800 years to the Sun dynasty when the empress and her concubines used it to maintain their youthful appearance.

The use of facial acupuncture to improve the appearance has been attracting increasing media attention in recent years. For example, the January 2009 issue of Woman & Home tested facial rejuvenation acupuncture and reported ‘…just one day later, I had more energy and my normally ultra-pale skin looked warmer and healthier, my brows looked lifted and lids less droopy, plus a deep forehead crease has lessened.’

Facial Acupunture (Cosmetic)

Recent reports also suggest that many actresses are using facial acupuncture to maintain their youthful appearance rather than undergoing the trauma of facelift surgery.

Most people would like to look younger but are put off by the thought of surgery or regular injections of Botox. Repeated surgery or Botox treatments can produce a mask-like appearance to the face which is never the case with facial acupuncture.

Facial acupuncture gives more subtle improvements, offering a non-surgical alternative to reduce the signs of aging and improve the appearance. Also, because each treatment is holistic and treats the whole person, there are additional, overall health benefits.

Whilst facial acupuncture will never replace a cosmetic, surgical facelift, it does offer positive and noticeable results.

How does it work?

A number of very fine needles are inserted into specific points to encourage blood and energy flow (Qi). This energises the natural healing process and helps to invigorate the face. Additionally, points may be used other than on the face, depending on the needs of the individual.

Every person is different and every treatment is different so techniques may be incorporated which supplement or even replace actual needling. This may be of benefit to those who have a specific dislike of needling – however gentle it may be.

Facial acupuncture can have measurable effects after the first treatment but a full course of twelve sessions is recommended to obtain the most benefits. Once the course is completed occasional further ‘top-up’ treatments may be required to maintain the improvement.
