What are the effects and benefits of treatment?
Facial Revitalisation is an alternative to surgery, with the added benefit of the well being offered to body, mind and spirit. Treatment can erase around 5 to 15 years age from the face.
Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture may be used to:
Improve muscle tone
Help eliminate puffiness by improving metabolism and thus eliminating excess fluids;
Help eliminate fine lines of the face and has a diminishing effect on larger wrinkles;
Improves hormonal balance and therefore may help hormonal acne;
Improve skin moisture;
Brighten the eyes;
Reduce stress in the face;
Promote overall health and well being;
Bring out your inner radiance and beauty;
Slow the aging process from within;
Benefits the eyes, ears, sinuses, thyroid and brain;
Reduce puffiness around the eyes.
What does it involve?
Fine needles are placed around the face and on the body and limbs. Points are chosen to stimulate a persons qi (“chi”) according to their individual needs. As well as treating the face the more distal points work so as to work on supporting the underlying health and well being of the person, which in turn helps to delay the aging process.
Generally my clients report feeling very relaxed after treatment and have been known to fall asleep during their treatment!
Does It Hurt?
There is a sensation when needles are placed in the skin, but it is not a painful procedure. You may feel a slight pinch as the needle is inserted but then you shouldn't feel any discomfort. It is more like a tightening of the skin.
