Cosmetic Acupuncture

Cosmetic Acupuncture is the safe, natural way to revitalise your face and complexion without resorting to toxins or the surgeon's knife.

Cosmetic Acupuncture gives fine neural stimulation which hydrates and plumps cells, increases blood supply and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, strengthening the structure of the skin. The stimulation also creates changes in muscle tone. Qi energy is encouraged to circulate through the use of points on yin and yang meridians.

These mechanisms result in improved tone and texture of the skin, diminishing fine lines and softening deeper ones. Dark circles improve and facial tissues tighten giving smoother firmer structural lines. Circulation of Qi energy gives a radiant glow and a feeling of health and well-being.

BodyPrime cosmetic acupuncture treatments are based on the Chinese system of cosmetic acupuncture successfully developed in China in the 1970's, although cosmetic acupuncture has been recorded since the Sung Dynasty 960-1270 AD and is widely used in China.

The International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported a study of 300 cases treated with cosmetic acupuncture, 90% of which reported marked effects after one course of treatment.

A course of treatment can be between 6 and 15 weekly sessions, although 2-3 treatments can produce a reduction in fine lines, with pores appearing to tighten and a more even colour and tone. Monthly top ups are recommended to maintain the results.

At your first appointment your face and general health will be assessed. Special very fine needles are applied and are usually retained for between 20 and 30 minutes. After the acupuncture you will be shown 'between treatment' massage and exercises for your face. There is a slight risk of short-lived bruising.
