Cosmetic Acupuncture in London

You can’t open a glossy magazine these days without seeing evidence of the remarkable growth in cosmetic surgery. Unfortunately, it’s also difficult to avoid the evidence of how cosmetic facial procedures can sometimes go spectacularly wrong.

Whether it’s the infamous ‘trout pout’ associated with cosmetic fillers, or scarring and a myriad other risk from invasive surgery, there’s no doubt that having ‘work’ done on your face can come with a good degree of risk as well as a hefty price tag.

The ‘non-surgical’ facelift

Cosmetic acupuncture has long been called the ‘non-surgical’ facelift, having limited risk and immediate benefits at an affordable price.

The practice of cosmetic acupuncture is hardly new – in fact, Asian practitioners of this ancient Chinese art began using acupuncture to enhance beauty and combat the effects of ageing centuries before the West latched on to cosmetic surgery as a commercially viable way of preserving facial youth.

In many ways, cosmetic acupuncture uses the same techniques as any other acupuncture treatment, painlessly inserting extremely fine needles into the skin to stimulate the body’s own natural healing and rejuvenating processes.

The cumulative effect of the procedure is to increase the circulation of qi, the body’s natural life force, which improves the efficiency of blood circulation and triggers the production of collagen – which is where the magic really happens.

Collagen is the body’s natural ‘filler’. It plumps the skin, improving elasticity, filling lines and increasing firmness. At the same time, the improved blood circulation stimulated by the acupuncture needles gives the facial skin a healthy glow. Together, these two biological processes combine to make the skin look naturally younger.

Quite quickly, after only a few treatments, the visible evidence of the benefits of cosmetic acupuncture are there for everyone to see: heavy lines are markedly fainter, smaller lines can disappear, the dreaded crow’s feet become less defined.

In fact, studies have shown that in cosmetic acupuncture achieved marked effects after just one treatment in 90% of cases (based on a sample of 300). Among the benefits the study observed were signs of the skin becoming more delicate, greater elasticity in the facial muscles, a better and healthier complexion and visible rejuvenation.

Acupuncture, whether for general health or for rejuvenation, concentrates on kickstarting the body’s ability to heal naturally. That means rebalancing the natural energy we all have and encouraging the body to manufacture the chemicals and nutrients that resolve a wide range of issues.

But although cosmetic acupuncture is a popular choice for those people who long for more youthful features, at The Acupuncturists we believe that radiant complexion reflects a healthier and more vibrant energetic state – and so our cosmetic acupuncture treatment includes treating points other than on the face. Because qi affects the whole-body, this approach to treatment also achieves whole-body benefits.
