How does Cosmetic Acupuncture work?
Cosmetic Acupuncture is a very simple and safe form of therapy administered by inserting very fine needles into strategic points on the body along the different meridians, pathways of energy; with focus on the face. It can stimulate the collagen productions to help restructuring; tightening the skin while clearing the stagnation of energy and re-establishing the balance of the organs, promoting a natural healing response and restoring well being. All our acupuncture needles are sterilized, single use and disposable.
Does Cosmetic Acupuncture Hurt?
It is very unlikely to cause any pain, as the Cosmetic Acupuncture needles are extremely fine; even thinner than normal acupuncture needles. Occasionally some patients may experience very slight discomfort, which can be quickly and easily adjusted. Most of our patients feel the pleasant sensations of tingling, tightening and a warm energy flow around the face during the session, and such responses are desirable as they indicate the effectiveness of the treatments. The overall effects after Cosmetic Acupuncture sessions are very relaxing and therapeutic.
