Benefits of Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture


Modern lifestyle comes with a lot of pressure to look immaculate, especially in a city like London. Many of us are looking for ways to address signs of ageing, and not many options available out there are necessarily natural, clean and beneficial to our health. Some of them even have questionable long-term effect, not just for our skin, but general health as well.

Facial Rejuvenation acupuncture is an effective way of tackling the signs of ageing. Its application is non-invasive, holistic, chemical free, and this ancient technique will have an immediate effect on your overall wellbeing. In fact, acupuncture has been an Asian beauty secret for hundreds of years, equally enjoyed by male and female Chinese royalty. 

Facial acupuncture may sound scary to some people, but the reality is that it is almost pain-free thanks to the super fine needles. These very fine needles, as thin as a strand of hair, are very carefully inserted into key areas and creases in your face. The tiny punctures cause positive micro-trauma that stimulates the lymphatic and circulatory system, which work together to deliver nutrients and oxygen to your skin cells. In this way skin is nourished from the inside out. The positive micro-trauma also stimulates the production of collagen, which helps to improve elasticity, minimising fine lines and wrinkles.  Some of the benefits of facial rejuvenation acupuncture include: reduction of fine lines, softening of deep wrinkles, lifting and toning muscles on your face and neck, evening of skin tone and texture, reduction of under eye bags, better skin hydration, increased circulation and vitality. It can also help to eliminate and disperse unsuccessful cosmetic treatments, such as Botox and fillers. 

While treating the face we are also addressing the body so facial acupuncture can actually help you with improving your digestion, help with sleep and reducing stress levels. As a side effect you will experience the positive effects it has on your energy levels, mood and spirit too!

Here are some tips on how to look after your face and skin:

  • Massage your face regularly, for at least two minutes a day, it promotes the circulation of lymph and blood and it also helps with toning the muscles on your face
  • SPF is essential when it comes to protecting your skin because the UV light can seriously damage, dehydrate and stimulate the free radicals that damage our skin cells and cause inflammation. When choosing a good SPF I would advise you to use mineral based products.
  • Strong skin = healthy skin, keep the good bacteria of your skin happy and alive by cleansing your skin with Ph neutral products. Choose ingredients wisely, keep away from soap and SLS’s that will strip off the good bacteria
  • Avoid harsh chemical and peeling acids because they damage the good bacteria on your skin. In addition, they will weaken the skin and speed up the ageing process
