Facial acupuncture is a completely natural way of enhancing facial skin health. In addition it has numerous benefits to overall health and wellbeing, as it includes acupoints to stimulate digestion, balance hormones and reduce tension in the body.
Effects on the face include toning muscles, reducing wrinkles and scarring, softening fine lines; improving radiance; reducing signs of aging; boosting collagen; minimising open pores; improving complexion; lifting the face and tightening sagging muscles, including jowls and cheeks.
A course of facial acupuncture involves 10 weekly treatments. The effects of this usually lasts for one year; and if requested top up sessions at 4-6 weekly can be carried out to continue enhancing the effect.
If you have had:
BOTOX/ MICRODERMABRASION/ LASER RESURFACING OR SURGICAL FACE-LIFTS recently you will need to wait at least 3 months before you can begin your facial acupuncture course.
What will happen in your appointment?
You will be sent a medical and diet questionnaire to complete before your appointment, please bring this along with you to your first session. At the beginning of the treatment session, your overall health will be assessed; including a pulse and tongue reading. The acupuncture treatment will include body points on your legs, arms and hands as well as facial points. These are used to strengthen digestion, balance hormones, reduce tension and enhance general wellbeing. A local anaesthetic cream can be used on the face if the skin is particularly sensitive and will be applied at the beginning of the treatment if needed. The facial acupuncture treatment will then be carried out, and you can then relax and drift away for 20 minutes, to take full benefit of the effects.
Following removal of the needles, Dr Katerina Steventon’s signature anti-aging serum will be applied to the skin; and it’s effects are greatly enhanced by the tiny holes created by the needling. This works by boosting collagen production and plumping fine lines and stimulating skin renewal. A relaxing facial massage is then carried out, using Dr Hauskcha Regenerative Day Cream; and the cooling and soothing jade roller is used to complete the treatment.
Your first appointment will usually last about an hour and a half and will include a consultation, medical questionnaire and a full explanation of the equipment and procedure.
