Cosmetic Acupuncture Therapy
Having an attitude “look young – feel young”, I also specialise in cosmetic acupuncture, which is a medical holistic TCM treatment. This treatment is specifically designed to improve the functions of organs and balance their relationship with each other in order to improve circulation of Qi, blood and body fluids, absorption of nutrients and excretions of waste, thereby positively influencing general health and beauty. In cosmetic acupuncture, I use special needles and techniques that reduce risks of bruising and discomfort. It is completely safe and does not cause tissue scarring or discolouration. While this treatment does not produce the immediate results, which are accomplished with cosmetic surgery, it is non-invasive, has no side effects, no risk for complications, and does not require anaesthesia.
Facial acupuncture increases collagen production, improves muscle tone, increases facial blood circulation, promotes skin rejuvenation, improves skin colour, tightens the pores, slows the ageing process from within, and benefits the eyes, ears, sinuses, thyroid and brain. Thus, this treatment should be viewed as a holistic approach to beauty where a lifting effect on the skin is created by activating the life energy force (Qi) that already exists within the body rather than the topical application of cream or invasive cosmetic surgery.
Inducing collagen production and achieving visible changes does take time and I can advise on general lifestyle and nutrition changes to support the success of the treatment.
