Facial Acupuncture involves the insertion of small sterile needles into the face to stimulate the body’s qi and blood flow which urges the lymphatic system to move lymph and toxins from our face.
Facial Acupuncture has been shown to promote collagen production, increase muscle tone and elasticity, thus helping your system to naturally fill out wrinkles.
The following is a list of conditions that Facial Acupuncture can help with:
- Reduction or erasure of fine line;
- Softening of deep lines;
- Increased collagen production;
- Better skin tone;
- Reduction in the size of under-eye bags;
- Reduction of dark circles;
- Lifting of drooping eyelids;
- Improved Jaw line;
- Increased lustre to the skin;
- Improved energy overall;
- Reduced tension.
What to expect.
During a session you will have small sterile needles inserted into your face at specific area’s such as around crow’s feet, in between the eyebrows or jaw line. I generally include Acupuncture points on the body that will onhave a positive impact your general health.
A course of 10 sessions is recommeded for visable results and possible more than one course of treatments. However, clients generally notice that their skin tone has improved and their eyes and complexion look brighter ad have more lustre and that the appearance of wrinkles or fine lines has improved after the initial treatments. Clients often say that thier friends made such comments as they were ’ looking really well but couldn’t point out just why’.
Regarding results, it’s important to add that each person responds differently depending on their own skin condition, general health and stress levels and lifestyle.
Facial Rejuvenation Massage
It is widely agreed that our minds are very busy in modern society and this stress can show in our face and neck and shoulders and manifest as tension headaches, facial lines, tight shoulders and poor posture and jaw clenching.
This is why I often add in Ayurvedic ‘Natural Face-lift’ Massage to help alleviate muscle tension and help the stress of the day face away. Natural Face-Lift Massage works on the structure of the skin, easing restrictions and lifting the face and releasing the facial tissue and fibres which has a beneficial effect on the connective tissue and overall appearance of the skin.
