Cosmetic acupuncture is an ancient Chinese beauty technique dating as far back as the Sung Dynasty (AD 960), where it was used by emperors and empresses to enhance beauty and youthfulness!
Begin with a relaxing facial massage with aromatherapy oil designed to help you to relax mentally and physically, to soften the musculature and to moisturize the skin and prepare it for needles.
Then, using acupoints which lie along the meridians, tiny needles will be inserted into your face as well as other areas of the body to address contributing underlying ailments. The process is designed to summon blood and energy to the area and encourages micro circulation and a healthy flow of oxygen and nutrients to the skin, increasing collagen production, decreasing inflammation and reducing muscle tension which becomes rigid over time and causes the appearance of lines.
After this, a refreshingly cool jade roller is applied along the contours of the face, closing the pores, tightening the skin and reducing lingering puffiness and redness.
So, whether you would like some help with fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, acne or breakout-prone skin, dullness or dryness, or just want to try something new, cosmetic acupuncture is for you!
