A Traditional Facial  Treatment
Facial Enhancement Acupuncture (FEA), also known as cosmetic acupuncture or facial acupuncture, is a natural therapy based on traditional acupuncture to rejuvenate and revitalise the face. It is an increasingly popular alternative to surgical or chemical cosmetic procedures to improve the appearance of the skin and reduce signs of aging.
Facial Enhancement Acupuncture works to:
Improve Skin Texture: Fine acupuncture needles, including tiny intradermal needles are inserted into specific points on the face, needles are also placed in other parts of the body to optimise the facial effect. The needles stimulate the flow of energy and blood to the facial tissues, promoting circulation and oxygenation. By enhancing blood flow and promoting the body's natural healing processes, FEA can lead to improved skin texture, a more even complexion, and a healthier glow.
Reduction of Fine Lines and Wrinkles via Collagen Production: Ultra fine intradermal needles placed in fine lines and wrinkles trigger the body to produce collagen within the dermis of the skin, leading to a smoother appearance of the area. The increase in collagen production can also help improve the elasticity and firmness of the facial skin. Over time, this treatment can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, making the skin look more youthful.
Muscle Relaxation: Acupuncture can also help relax facial muscles, reducing tension in the face, neck and shoulders and throughout the body.
Overall Well-Being: Acupuncture treatments are based on the principles of traditional Chinese medicine, which focus on balancing the body's energy and promoting overall well-being. This can have a positive impact on the health and vitality of the skin.
When performed by a qualified, Licensed Practitioner, Facial Enhancement Acupuncture is a safe alternative to more invasive cosmetic procedures. The effects are more subtle than those achieved through surgical procedures like facelifts, and a set of 10 sessions are recommended for optimal results; monthly to 6 weekly follow up treatments can then maintain the positive effects.
