Please note that while cosmetic acupuncture is a powerful approach, it is an organic process which does not erase all signs of ageing. This approach is designed to have you looking and feeling your best. Results can vary as every individual has their own unique response to the treatment process. The healthier you are the faster your results will generally appear.
Dr Sandra Wu has a special interest in cosmetic acupuncture.
Main Body of Treatment
Your treatment will begin with a few acupuncture points along the body to address tension and internal imbalances. This helps you to relax during the treatment. This is then followed by some gentle facial acupuncture.
A healthy lifestyle contributes to the health of your overall body which is reflected in the face So you will receive lifestyle advice during the initial consultation. This may also include factors around your diet, exercise regime and down time.
Number of Cosmetic Acupuncture Sessions
A series of cosmetic acupuncture treatments is usually required as it is an organic process and optimal rejuvenation takes time.
Firstly, at your initial visit, we will discuss your goals and advise how many treatments you may need.
Is it painful?
Cosmetic acupuncture is not painful. The insertion of the needles is very shallow with only a small prick felt at most. The needles used are of the highest quality designed specifically for comfortable and smooth insertion. In fact, it is common for clients to find facial acupuncture relaxing and to catch up on some sleep during treatment!
It is generally not advised to have cosmetic acupuncture if you have any of the following:
- recurrent migraines
- easily bruise
- broken skin, cold sores, scabs, active acne, rashes
- contagious skin problems
- skin cancers
- had a collagen injection within the last 3 months
- recently have had micro-dermabrasion or laser therapy.
