This technique has long been used in China but is relatively new to the West. Fine needles are used at specific points in the face and neck and targeting problem areas with the aim of combatting the signs of aging and improving the condition of the skin.
Unlike other cosmetic treatments, acupuncture is a natural and holistic treatment which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by increasing blood flow and collagen, giving you a radiant glow. You will also find that the treatment helps lift the face where the skin begins drop and sag, usually around the cheeks and jowls.
Rachel will take a full healthy history before starting the treatment, which will begin with cleansing the face and neck, followed by the insertion of fine needles to target problem areas. Rachel will also choose some additional points on the body to give an all over treatment and to help you feel relaxed and revived.
Needles are retained for around 20 minutes and then Rachel will use the luxury Medik8 range of skin care products to provide a facial massage to maximise the benefits of the needles.
A course of treatments will be needed to gain the best results, followed by occasional top-ups, although most patients notice a difference after the first treatment. Patients also often report that they feel better in themselves, sleep is improved and their eyes look brighter.
