Cosmetic acupuncture - also known as ‘Facial Rejuvenation’ - is a type of acupuncture that focuses on combating signs of ageing. It is a natural, effective and safe method to improve the overall condition of your skin and minimize wrinkles and bags under the eyes. However, it’s not just a ‘local’ cosmetic treatment; consistent with the traditional Chinese approach, your constitutional condition is also treated. This method has already being used during the Song Dynasty (960-1279 AD) by Chinese emperors and imperial concubines to stay young, beautiful and healthy. In the Netherlands Cosmetic Acupuncture is still rather unknown, whereas in the United States it is already being applied on a large scale.
A cosmetic acupuncture treatment consists of inserting very thin, small needles (intradermals) into the skull, face and chin/neck. The needles are inserted right into the wrinkles. These intradermals stimulate the production of collagen exactly where needed, which fills up the wrinkles. After removing the needles the deeper skin layer is massaged using roll and lift techniques on acupuncture points. This balances the distribution of energy in the face and stimulates increased disposal of residues. This facial massage is healing and revitalising.
The most important benefit of cosmetic acupuncture is that there are no chemical substances being inserted into your body. With ageing, the production of collagen in the skin cells declines.This is one of the primary reasons for the development of wrinkles and weakening of the skin. Cosmetic acupuncture improves blood circulation, increases the production of collagen, improves hormonal balance, takes care of regulation and circulation of moisture and strengthens the pores. Cosmetic acupuncture minimizes facial signs of ageing and stress, such as bags under eyes, wrinkles and lines.
Frequency of treatment
For cosmetic acupuncture, a series of ten to twelve consultations is necessary to achieve the desired effect. The impacts of cosmetic acupuncture are subtle and gracious. A relaxed face and rosy complexion are visible after the first consultation. On average, effects are obvious and lasting after seven consultations.
Cosmetic Acupuncture is for everyone wanting to look younger and radiating.
