Facial rejuvenation acupuncture treatment
How facial acupuncture can give results 'as good as Botox'
If you want to achieve noticeable results from a facial, it needs to be drastic. The traditional combination of cleansing, toning and a facemask may leave you feeling relaxed and your skin looking rosy, but in reality it will make more difference to your mood than your skin and - in my experience - the results will be gone by the following day.
The Holistic Approach to health and beauty is different…it assesses and treats imbalances in the holistic system, not just the face, and creates lasting results.
After taking your medical history, assessing your diet, fluid intake and lifestyle, medications, cosmetics, and emotional state, Linda uses Chinese medicine principles to assess and identify your body’s areas of weakness before identifying problem areas on your face.
In this centre we address the entire system, not just the face. The face reflects the inner state of health and wellbeing.
Once a detailed holistic assessment is completed Linda will prescribe certain points on the body, as well as the face into which she will insert very fine, pre sterilized disposable needles. This may appear a bit gruesome but is actually pain free and nothing at all to get worried about. The body paints are chosen to help readdress any imbalance in your system which are leading to ill health or preventing you from firing on all cylinders. In the face the needles create a ‘micro-trauma’, prompting increased blood flow and nutrients to flow to the area, kick-starting the skin’s rejuvenation process.
Needles are also placed in specific sites around the body. The needles stay in for about 30 minutes.
The final stage of the process is to advise on specific Essential Oil blends for your specific skin type, and give directions on usage, as well as specific supplements and dietary changes which would be of benefit.
My clients normally book a course of treatments to see the best results, but that after just one session the face would appear more ‘open’ as if they had some sort of filler.
A typical Acupuncture facial rejuvenation session costs £40 however we offer a package which includes your initial assessment and 10 treatments at a discounted rate of £350
Facial acupuncture can provide results equivalent to Botox.
The Irish Times acclaimed this treatment as:
“…a viable alternative to cosmetic surgery and the effects can run much deeper than simply improving appearances.”
