In My Clinic you can look and feel your best!

Acupuncture facelifts can erase years from your face without introducing any toxins or paralysing muscles. It is safe, needs no recovery time and is a lot cheaper than other facial enhancements.

What happens at a treatment?
A treatment involves a discussion with the patient about the different areas they would liked worked on. Hot towels soaked in aromatherapy oils are placed on the face to soften and relax the skin. Body needles are inserted; to correct any disease or stagnation, stimulate the meridians traversing the face, for relaxation, for facial acne or discolouration, to reduce inflammation and improve skin texture. Hair-fine, high quality, disposable sterile needles are placed into specific facial points to stimulate energy (qi), lymph and blood. This helps to activate the production of collagen and elastin and also stimulates the underlying muscles. The needles are left in place for 30 minutes and during this time the patient can enjoy a nice relaxing massage to the head and feet. After the needles are removed, good quality organic products are applied and this is followed by a facial massage with an ultrasonic wand.

How many treatments?
This is dependent on a number of factors. Generally the older you are the more treatments will be required but this is not necessarily true. The expectations and the health of the patient are important. Also, the type of facial enhancement desired. Sagging and puffiness is treated much more quickly than deep lines and crępey areas. For deep lines there would be a softening effect after each treatment, ideally relatively close together. If you are young and noticing the first signs of aging it is a good time to have a treatment to delay the aging process and prevent lines from getting deeper.

Does it hurt?
The needles are tiny and the finest quality. I am skilled at needling so insertion is very quick. Of course it is sensitive around the mouth but not as painful as plucking eyebrows or waxing procedures.
