Case Study: This lady is 50 years of age, this is her 4th facial rejuvenation treatment and already she is reporting a change in skin texture and tone. The protocol shown here includes a point prescription for reducing frown lines, lifting the eyebrows, tightening the forehead, and strengthening the platysma muscle which lies beneath the skin on the area of the neck which often experiences sagging and jowls [DEC 2016.] Photo shared with permission from the patient.
Cosmetic acupuncture can be used to reduce acne, brighten the skin even out the complexion and to soften lines and wrinkles. It is important to keep up your intake of Vitamin C during the course of treatment as Vit C is critical for the production of collagen. Very fine Japanese stainless steel needles made specifically for the face are used with minimal discomfort, some people even report that they can’t even feel the insertion.
We have recently started a herbal product inspired by popular Japanese kampo medicine which perfectly compliments our cosmetic acupuncture, the formula includes herbs for the skin, hair, eyes, spirit and resilience all in one for complete holistic care.
