Facial Rejuvenation

What is Facial Acupuncture / Facial Rejuvenation?
Facial Acupuncture/ Facial Rejuvenation treatment concentrates on points and muscles of the face in order to improve elasticity of your skin and general overall appearance. It is a totally natural, non-surgical facial that more people are turning to as a viable and highly acclaimed alternative to invasive injections, fillers and chemical treatments.  It involves placing tiny, painless acupuncture needles into various points on the face and sometimes on the body to stimulate specific internal organs.
Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years and although relatively new to the West the Chinese have been using points on the face to combat the signs of ageing and to help with various skin conditions for many years. It was in use as early as the Song Dynasty (960AD - 1279AD) when the Empress and Emperor's concubines received Cosmetic Acupuncture.
Facial acupuncture has recently been featured on TV programmes including '10 Years Younger' and 'How Not to Get Old'.
How does Facial Acupuncture work?
•    Increased blood circulation encourages oxygenation, detox and lymph drainage.
•    Improves skin tone and texture.
•    Stimulates collagen to plump up the skin.
•    Tightens muscles in the face and neck.
•    Increases cell regeneration filling out and smoothing lines and wrinkles.
•    Regulates and balances hormones – in acne-type, stress-related and menopausal skin.
This treatment also works on lifting the face, particularly where the face begins to sag around the 'jowls' and the cheek area, rather than simply targeting wrinkles.  Facial patients also frequently report that they feel healthier, sleep better, have brighter eyes and feel more balanced.
Studies published in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture in 1996 showed that of 300 people who received Facial Acupuncture, 90% demonstrated marked results after only their first treatment.
How many treatments would I need?
You can have one treatment at a time but for optimum results a course of 6 treatments is recommended, either 2 a week over 3 weeks or 1 a week over 6 weeks.  
Over a course of treatments you can not only expect to be looking more radiant, but you will also start to feel more balanced and happy in yourself.
The Irish Times recently acclaimed this treatment as:  "...a viable alternative to cosmetic surgery and the effects can run much deeper than simply improving appearances."
When you feel more in control of your body and mind you can then start to address any other issues in your life. These are all things that we can achieve when we are in balance and feeling good about ourselves, once you start to feel like this, you will be surprised how much yourself image improves and you will feel more in control of your life.
