Cosmetic Acupuncture

a

The Zen Medicine Clinic offers Cosmetic Acupuncture or Facial Rejuvenation, a natural way to improve complexion, enhance beauty and wellbeing.

 

Wanting to look and feel great is not vanity – it’s the ultimate in self care.

 

Treatment is two fold

  1. it addresses underlying imbalances within the body which cause facial problems; and
  2. directly treats problem areas on the face such as fine lines and wrinkles, sagging, and discolouration or dull complexion.

 

The treatment is safe and gentle involving the insertion of very fine needles into specific areas of the face.

 

When the skin is needled it causes a micro trauma stimulating the production of collagen and elastin giving the skin an even tone, lift and plumping and a natural youthful glow.

Treatment involves:

a

Pros:

  • enhancing natural beauty
  • holistic health & wellbeing
  • deeply relaxing & restoring
  • no down time

Cons:

  • benefits are felt after the first session however, treatments are cumulative meaning creating better results over a period of time

A typical first treatment involves a comprehensive consultation to discuss areas of concern and questions are asked regarding diet and lifestyle to enable the practitioner to deliver a personalised treatment.

 

Make up is removed and facial massage is given to prepare the skin for treatment.  The patient then relaxes while receiving acupuncture on the body and then to the face.

Needles are retained in the facial area for approximately 20 mins. Treatment is not painful, there may be slight discomfort briefly as the needle is inserted in certain areas but it is minimal.

 

After withdrawing needles, the patient receives a gentle facial massage with rose or anica oil and Gua Sha (skin scraping) is given with jade or onyx crystal to improve circulation and break up stagnation leaving you with radiant skin
