Makiko Wood - Facial acupuncture

What is cosmetic acupuncture?

Cosmetic acupuncture, is a natural and gentle beauty treatment that combines traditional acupuncture techniques with a focus on improving the look and feel of your skin, especially in reducing the signs of ageing.  Cosmetic acupuncture is a gentle way to take care of your skin, bringing together the wisdom of traditional Chinese medicine and the desire for youthful skin. It may be an alternative or complimentary (as long as leaving 6weeks after the procedure) choice for those looking for a non-surgical alternative to traditional cosmetic procedures e.g. Botox and filler. 

What is quantum healing? 

Quantum Healing is an innovative, non-invasive healing approach that blends Eastern energy methods with Western physiology, providing effective painless healing. Quantum healing works by restoring balance to the body’s energetic field, allowing for a deeper level of healing on physical, mental, and emotional levels and more. Through this process, you can experience long-lasting relief from various conditions and other physical and emotional issues.

1. The Procedure: During a cosmetic acupuncture session, fine needles are delicately inserted into specific points on your face, neck, and possibly other areas of your body. These points are carefully chosen to help boost energy flow (Qi) and enhance blood circulation to your face.

2. The Benefits:

• Softening fine lines and wrinkles: The tiny “pinpricks” from the needles are believed to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which can make your skin more supple and smooth.

• Brightening your complexion: Cosmetic acupuncture may help with common skin concerns like acne or rosacea.

Holistic and natural approach: It’s all about promoting not just beautiful skin but overall wellbeing by balancing your body’s energy.

3. How Long and How Often: Typically, cosmetic acupuncture is done as a series of sessions. You’ll usually need multiple sessions for the best results. The exact number and frequency depend on what you want to achieve and your skin’s specific needs.

4. Safety: As long as it’s done by a licensed and well-trained acupuncturist, cosmetic acupuncture is generally very safe. You might experience some mild redness or bruising at the sites where the needles were inserted.

5. Does It Work? The effectiveness of cosmetic acupuncture can differ from person to person. While some people see great improvements in their skin quality and a reduction in fine lines, others might experience more subtle results.
