Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture (cosmetic acupuncture)
Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture is a non-surgical and painless method which may reduce the signs of aging. Facial acupuncture is a natural treatment and could erase years from the face, with results seen after just a few treatments. Fine lines may disappear completely and deeper wrinkles may be reduced. The treatments may also increase local blood circulation leading to improved skin and muscle tone.
Many of the energy channels start on the face and this knowledge is used to promote the natural rejuvenation process. First the muscles of the face are relaxed, followed by the insertion of extremely fine needles, resulting in the stimulation of the channels and promotion of the flow of blood and oxygen to the facial skin and muscles . In addition to this, the treatment will also include points on the body to both support the facial treatment and help improve your general health.
Each Facial Revitalisation treatment will last up to an hour and a half (the initial treatment will be 1 hour 45 minutes as a case history will need to be taken). A course of ten treatments is initially recommended, preferably weekly. Patients often choose to have 1 or 2 monthly top-up treatments to maintain their improvements.
I thought the needles would be painful but it was nothing like I imagined. Sharon was gentle and made me feel very comfortable. I would recommend her to anyone.After just a few sessions of facial acupuncture I almost didn't recognise myself, I had to take a double look in the mirror. Even my husband noticed! Julia B
