Each Advanced Acu-facial therapy™ is completely bespoke and tailored to your skin's needs at that time. Before your first treatment an in-depth consultation including a full medical history is taken and following your first treatment a personalised treatment plan will be designed for you. In addition to cosmetic acupuncture or a facial acupressure-massage, your Acu-Facial Therapy treatment may include acupuncture on the ear and body, intradermal needling, lymphatic drainage, facial cupping, facial gua sha and jade rollers, a sonic facial cleanse, peels, LED light therapy and a selection of serums and masks.
The gentle cosmetic acupuncture uses ultra-fine, single use needles. The needle insertion into the skin is superficially and virtually painless. It may produce some kind of tingling sensation at the site of needling.
Acu-facial therapy™ is ideal for women and men in all stages of life. It is a great choice for those who need to avoid recovery time and prefer a natural look. Treatment is both preventive and corrective and can also help in the treatment of skin concerns such as acne, rosacea, sun damage and dehydrated skin, when combined with topical skin care and other treatments.
Treatment effects are cumulative, generally a course of 6-12 consecutive treatments is recommended to achieve optimal and long-term results, although a one-off treatment can also be very effective to help boost skin radiance and rejuvenate the complexion. Ongoing maintenance treatments are recommended after the course, one or two per month.
