Facial Acupuncture

What is Facial Acupuncture?

Fine acupuncture needles are inserted into the main muscles of the face. Even smaller intra dermal needles are inserted into wrinkles on the brow and round the mouth. The needles are left in for about twenty minutes and then removed.

How does it work?

The needles create a mini trauma to the skin and the body reacts by producing collagen. Collagen gives firmness to muscles and hence the whole face lifts. It also promotes blood flow to the skin surface. The procedure is preceded and completed with an acupressure facial massage.

In addition to the facial procedure, acupuncture points on the body are used to tonify bodily processes, such as digestion which often contribute to swelling on the face. By restoring balance to our organs it can eliminate the root cause of some of the facial skin problems.
