Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture comes to SW London!
There are an increasing number of celebrities posting on Instagram about their experiences of Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture (Lisa Snowdon is a regular and just last month Jessica Alba joined a long list of A listers), and now this service is available across Clapham and Battersea in the comfort of your own home (perfect for those with busy schedules or children to look after).
The treatment can look a little scary at first with between 40-100 needles inserted into the face but this “natural Botox” is actually found to be a relaxing and enjoyable experience. The needles are specially designed for the face and cause minimal discomfort throughout the hour-long treatment. A somewhat unique aspect of this treatment is that there are no tale tell signs that you’ve had a treatment, within 5 minutes you just have a healthy natural glow and an immediate reduction in fine lines and wrinkles (all without changing the look of your face and without inserting unnatural chemicals into your body).
How does Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture work?
When the needles are inserted it causes an inflammatory to the cell bed where new skin cells are produced. This has been proven to improve the quality of new skin cells in three ways; a higher density of collagen (which starts decreasing from the age of 25 onwards), and increased levels of natural oils and water retention. This gives firmer, more elastic skin. It can also improve areas of skin damage. It takes up to 8 weeks for the new skin cells to come through however, you will see immediate improvements with each session too. This includes a natural glow, a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles and a general firming feeling to your face. Each time you stimulate an areas with the needles the response increases however, even after the first session you would expect to see an improvement that lasted several days.
Another benefit to this treatment is that there are no residual marks and patients often schedule it before an evening event so that they are glowing and looking their best.
The clinic started in SE London from a discrete location and has now expanded to a home visiting service.
