Reduce imperfections and improve facial contours in a safe and medical way
A TOTALLY NATURAL TREATMENT THAT
STIMULATES YOUR BODY’S NATURAL HEALING PROCESSES
COSMETIC ACUPUNCTURE IN LONDON
Acupuncture is a centuries-old holistic therapy that was originally introduced in ancient China and has now become a staple feature of natural medicine around the world. Now its cosmetic benefits are available here at West 1 Physiotherapy and Pilates, Harley Street.
Using long-established acupuncture points on the face, cosmetic acupuncture is a totally natural treatment that stimulates your body’s natural healing processes to reduce imperfections like fine lines and wrinkles. It can also tackle underlying problems that contribute to skin-ageing.
Delivered via a course of treatments, it’s an approach to healing that can have not just significant physical benefits but also a positive psychological impact.
By improving the appearance of wrinkles and lines, lifting and toning sagging muscles and skin, reducing puffiness and bloating of the face and reducing the visibility of scarring and pigmentation issues through burns, surgery or acne, cosmetic acupuncture can contribute to improved body confidence and self-esteem.
Improved blood flow, stimulated by expert use of acupuncture needles will freshen the complexion and clients may also see improved elasticity which contributes to better pore health, better muscle definition, a rebalancing of hormones – particularly where stress, acne or the menopause are factors – and improved sleep patterns.
REDUCE YOUR RISK OF INJURY
Other benefits include greater dermal resistance to the effects of UV exposure, improved digestion and reduced stress.
The treatment is painless, non-toxic and unlike treatments associated with greater risk, such as Botox, will not negatively affect your appearance over time.
HOW OFTEN WILL I NEED THE TREATMENT?
In order to see sustained and significant improvements to your skin’s appearance and underlying health, we’d normally recommend you have between 6 and 12 treatments, depending on what you’re hoping to achieve. This is because your treatments will need to dovetail with the natural healing and regeneration cycle of the skin.
WHAT WILL MY TREATMENT ENTAIL?
Whether you’re coming to see us for physiotherapy, clinical pilates or cosmetic acupuncture, we take the same approach to your care and wellbeing. That starts with a general assessment of your overall health.
Your cosmetic acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific acupuncture points on the face, ears, neck and body. As with many holistic treatments, resolving an issue that manifests in one place on your body may require treating an altogether different area. The process is painless and by inserting the needles, the body’s own healing processes are triggered, restoring health and balance to the affected area.
Our focus is on the face, but when combined with the targeting of specific body points, the treatment can, over time, promote positive changes to your facial features that can be long lasting.
The treatment also includes a peptide infusion treatment mask and facial massage – all of which adds up to a pleasant and relaxing experience. Cosmetic acupuncture also works well with medical micro-needling if your therapist thinks that’s appropriate.
WHAT HAPPENS POST-TREATMENT?
As with anything that can materially affect our health, lifestyle can have a significant impact on how effective the treatment is and how often you may need to have repeat sessions. We’ll discuss all that with you and, as always with West 1 Physio, you’ll have the reassurance of knowing we’re on hand to help and support you every step of the way.
