Cosmetic Acupuncture

Medical Acupuncture is given to treat an illness or condition. Growing older is not an illness - it is perfectly natural. It is perfectly natural, also, to want to look as young as you can for your age. This is where Cosmetic Acupuncture can help.

The area where Cosmetic Acupuncture can give the greatest benefits is Facial Enhancement.

Facial Enhancement Cosmetic Acupuncture

Facial Enhancement Cosmetic Acupuncture is a holistic approach to achieving an overall improvement in skin elasticity and radiance, enhancing natural beauty - no chemicals, no dramatic surgery and a fraction of the cost. Because this is a treatment which aims, also, to improve general health it will give a feeling of well being too - a total pampering experience.

This tends to have a knock on effect in that when we feel good about ourselves, we start to make other changes improving our lifestyle and health, such as increasing exercise, altering diet, stopping smoking and so on . . .

Facial Enhancement Cosmetic Acupuncture is an effective, non-surgical skin care, anti-aging treatment. The facial enhancement or cosmetic acupuncture is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) which involves the insertion of very fine disposable needles into acupuncture points on the face and body. It is not the latest fad in beauty treatment - acupuncture has been practiced in China for thousands of years.

There has been a recent surge in interest in Cosmetic Acupuncture in those wanting an alternative, natural method to cosmetic surgery, laser/chemical peels and botox for a facial rejuvenation beauty treatment in order to maintain a younger look. It is far less costly than surgery. Facial enhancement acupuncture is also safe, as it is a natural facial rejuvenation treatment which requires no drugs or injections and has minimal side effects.

The facial rejuvenation cosmetic acupuncture stimulates the acupuncture points on the face and body and therefore improves muscle tone and skin contraction, this in turn helps to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. It also reduces sagging jowls and helps to rid puffiness by improving general metabolism - the skin circulation is greatly improved and this helps even out colour tone and tightens the pores. The effect is facial enhancement, with a rejuvenating affect on appearance, features and skin tone. No dramatic, drastic changes aiming to enhance your natural beauty and celebrate the wisdom of graceful aging.

As facial enhancement acupuncture is totally natural and is working with the body's energy, you will feel revitalised all over and experience a generalised sense of well-being. This effect, in turn, often results in the confidence and motivation to achieve other lifestyle changes to further enhance the appearance and general health e.g stop smoking, lose weight, increase exercise. Cosmetic Acupuncture is a fantastic, natural, feel good alternative to medical, surgical and chemical invasive and expensive interventions.

What should I expect to happen in a Facial Enhancement acupuncture session?

After your initial phone consultation to assess the appropriateness of the cosmetic acupuncture you can book your appointment. The clinics are held in the Halifax area and currently running in Ripponden, Sowerby Bridge. There is a pleasant waiting area and a warm welcome. You will be greeted with respectful professionalism and with a kind, caring, friendly approach. Confidentiality is maintained at all times and any notes taken are stored in a locked cabinet.

I will take a full history from you to include any medications currently taken, allergies and any past and present medical problems. It is important to give a good history. The room is totally private and has a relaxed feel, important, as this enhances the whole experience.

First of all I make sure you are comfortable on the couch. It is best to lie flat but if you have a condition where you need to be propped up this is not a problem.

I begin the facial enhancement acupuncture by cleansing your face with a lotion. There is a mirror available to re-apply make-up before leaving the room if you wish, but it is generally suggested that the face is kept make-up free for the rest of the day to get a full effect.

I then apply a gentle numbing cream to the areas I will be needling on your face. If you have not had acupuncture/cosmetic acupuncture before, I will show you the needles. I explain everything as I go along so there are no shocks or surprises! I do my best to make this a relaxing therapeutic experience for you.

Whilst the numbing cream is taking effect, I insert an acupuncture needle to each hand and foot, then start to work on the face. If there are any fine lines you are not happy about, I can work on those specifically too.

I check that the needles are comfortable as I go along. People normally experience a relaxed mood throughout the treatment and find the whole experience of facial enhancement acupuncture enjoyable.

The acupuncture needles remain in for about ten minutes, any longer than that and they start to come out on their own! Once removed and disposed of in a sharps bin, I finish with a Jade stone massage, cooling and refreshing, revitalising the skin and making you feel totally relaxed and pampered. My aim is to ensure that facial enhancement acupuncture gives you a feeling of well being, improved health and also with the desired effect of a facial rejuvenation and revitalisation. The natural way to enhance your natural beauty.

How many Cosmetic Acupuncture sessions will I need?

Facial enhancement can become evident after the first treatment, although significant facial rejuvenation is usually evident after you have received a number of cosmetic acupuncture sessions.

Normally there is a weekly acupuncture session for eight to ten weeks followed by one every month, but this can be adapted to suit the individual.

You may decide you would like a few acupuncture treatments during the build up to a special occasion or you may want to embark on regular facial enhancement acupuncture treatments throughout the year.

Your free 15 minute consultation will ensure cosmetic acupuncture is suitable and appropriate for your requirements. If you are wanting total transformation and not happy with your general features then Cosmetic Acupuncture is not for you. This is a facial rejuvenation therapy for people who are happy with their general appearance and want to improve on this. Following a course of facial enhancement acupuncture, friends and family notice you look good but cannot really work out what is different!

The facial rejuvenation sessions last a maximum of one hour and fifteen minutes.

Does it Hurt?

The facial enhancement acupuncture needles are fine, sterile and disposable. There is very little sensation and only a mild stinging may be experienced on some occasions, the whole experience can be very relaxing and enjoyable. The only side effects can be some bleeding and possibly, in few cases, bruising which should disappear in three to seven days.
