We’ve all heard of acupuncture, but how many of you have heard of cosmetic acupuncture? That’s right, acupuncture needles applied not along your body, but to your face. Now while it may sound a bit strange, there are a number of surprising benefits of cosmetic acupuncture. The Secret Oasis Spa in Fulham talks us through…
1) Cosmetic acupuncture is natural
There are no chemicals here! Cosmetic acupuncture involves the insertion of tiny needles to unblock the flow of energy in the face. It is 100% natural in every way.
2) Cosmetic acupuncture rejuvenates skin
Cosmetic acupuncture is all about stimulating the body’s own natural ability to heal and renew. It does this by increasing circulation (bringing nutrients to skin level) and increasing the body’s collagen / elastin production.
3) Cosmetic acupuncture is great for addressing wrinkles, fine lines and folds
Because of the above, may people find that cosmetic acupuncture helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and folds. Cosmetic acupuncture helps to relax and strengthen facial muscles from within, leaving skin considerably firmer. It can also help lift sagging skin and fill out sunken areas.
4) Cosmetic acupuncture has more natural results than BOTOX
Unlike BOTOX, acupuncture results appear more natural, helping the skin glow and look naturally younger. So you can keep your facial expressions and look great too!
5) Cosmetic acupuncture leaves your skin glowing
Because your skin is rejuvenated, it glows. That increase in circulation, nutrients and collagen combines to leave your skin looking and feeling radiant.
6) You’ll feel relaxed
Believe it or not, cosmetic acupuncture can have the same relaxing, stress busting side effects that a whole body acupuncture session does. You’ll leave your practitioner feeling great and looking great too!
