Cosmetic Acupuncture in London

In the past decade or so, cosmetic acupuncture has become popular in the West, but inserting super fine acupuncture needles in specific points on the face to enhance beauty and preserve a youthful appearance, has been normal practice for centuries in China and other Asian countries.

Cosmetic acupuncture has been dubbed the 'Non-Surgical Facelift' and like traditional acupuncture, it aims to balance the body's energy and create a sense of well-being. The superficial insertion of the needles helps to increase the local circulation of qi and blood to the face and stimulate collagen production, which helps fill out the lines and give firmness to the skin for a healthy, glowing complexion which results in facial rejuvenation.

A radiant complexion is a reflection of a balanced and healthy internal energetic state and therefore the treatment that I offer will include treating points other than those on the face to help re-establish the internal flow of qi.

A 1996 report in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with Cosmetic Acupuncture, 90% had marked effects with one course of treatment. These effects included: the skin becoming delicate, improvement of elasticity of facial muscles, ruddier complexion, and overall rejuvenation.
