Facial & Cosmetic Acupuncture in London

When it comes to looking and feeling well, your face says a lot about the state of your general health.

On those occasions when we’re not feeling 100 per cent, or we’re struggling with an illness, the face is the area that shows the strain the most, and so looking good has a lot to do with feeling good.

Any cosmetic process that deals only with the skin will always have limited and short-term benefits.

That’s why our first priority when it comes to our 5-phase state-of-the-art cosmetic acupuncture treatment is to start the process of improving your general wellbeing than it is about the cosmetic changes that come from removing wrinkles and lines.

Whilst facial acupuncture is wonderfully relaxing and can be the last word in treating yourself to a little self-indulgence, each phase of the process has a very clear and distinctive role to play in managing your health.

Cosmetic Acupuncture London

First Phase: Constitutional Acupuncture

Acupuncture is founded on the fundamental belief that our health is governed by how effectively and efficiently our internal energy system is working.

Because we’re more susceptible to illness and injury when that energy system is impaired or compromised, the first phase of cosmetic acupuncture gently places superfine needles in different parts of the body to reset and rebalance your energy network.

By doing this, we can address the underlying patterns of disharmony that are adversely contributing to your overall health – and which, left untreated, will continue affect the way you look and feel.

Second Phase: Facial Acupuncture

During the facial acupuncture phase specially designed needles are placed strategically into the skin of the face, ears and scalp depending on the facial symptoms

This process breathes new life into the skin, improving elasticity and enhancing the complexion.

Clinical research has shown the needles we use can significantly improve the appearance of acne scarring. Facial acupuncture has other advantages too: it hydrates the skin, encourages cellular regeneration and can help mitigate common unpleasant skin conditions such as psoriasis, dermatitis and eczema.

Third Phase: LED light therapy (Celluma)

Whilst the needles are still in place, we move on to the third phase – Celluma. Celluma is the very latest technology available in the field of facial acupuncture and can significantly improve the results patients experience.

Phototherapy through LED energy technology is the application of specific wavelengths of light to obtain therapeutic benefits.

This form of light treatment is already widely used in conventional medicine and is known for its holistic healing properties as well as being proven to have anti-inflammatory benefits, too – meaning that not only can it significantly reduce wrinkles and improve skin tone, improve lymphatic drainage, increase collagen and elastin production, it can also ease joint and muscle pain and mitigate the discomfort of arthritis.

Fourth Phase: Skin Rejuvenation Anti-Ageing Face Mask & Jade Roller

After the LED light therapy phase is complete and the specialised needles have been removed, you can relax with a skin-rejuvenating anti-ageing face mask.

It’s a luxurious phase of the treatment that soothes, hydrates and moisturises the skin, allowing anti-ageing compounds to directly enter the facial pores and achieve deep anti-wrinkle and lifting benefits.

Using a Jade roller is not only a wonderfully relaxing experience, it also works to promote better circulation in the face, which in turn encourages a natural process of removing the toxins that inhibit toning and lifting.

Fifth Phase: Extra Special Finishing Touches

Cosmetic acupuncture is like your best day at the spa, but the final finishing touch is something extra-special to make you feel totally pampered. With our cosmetic acupuncture treatment, you’ll be able to choose one from three treatments:

Tension-busting facial Gua Sha: A truly relaxing massage technique that relieves tension, boosts circulation and is an antidote to puffiness

Collagen-promoting facial cupping: This is a gently pleasant technique that promotes the body’s natural production of collagen, which can promote better skin tone, reduce the visibility of scars, blemishes and wrinkles and add tone and texture to the jawline.

Detoxifying Tuina facial massage: A massage to end all massages, Tuina facial massage rids the skin of naturally occurring toxins that accelerate ageing whilst also relaxing muscular tension and sagging.
