Does Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture work?
The answer is 'YES'. Realistic outcomes will see your skin tone improve. Fine wrinkles will be reduced and deeper facial lines, softened. Your skin will feel more moisturised and hydrated, with a gradual increase in overall tone and firmness, leaving you feeling and looking more confident, glowing and youthful.
Does Facial Acupuncture hurt?
No it does not hurt. We use very fine needles and often you will not feel anything when the needles are inserted into your skin. However, it is not unusual to feel a miniscule and fast prick when the needles are inserted. The 'prickly' feeling will disappear instantly and the rest of the treatment is practically painless.
How long till I see some results?
Often times after the first treatment, you will find your skin feeling softer, hydrated and moisturised. The outcome depends on your body's ability to respond to the treatment provided. Positives changes in lifestyles, diet and emotional stress will see your facial skin respond faster to the treatments. The healthier your are, the better and faster the outcome will be.
How many sessions of treatments will I need?
The number of treatments varies from individual to individual. Generally, 8-10 weekly treatments will show considerable and noticeable results. A minimum of 8 weekly treatments is required in order for your facial skin to respond to the treatment. Once the treatment sessions are completed, results can last for many years, subjected to lifestyle, diet and emotional factors. Maintenance sessions are recommended for every 8 to 12 weeks.

Clients who have had cosmetic surgery such as face lifts, Botox or cosmetic fillers should avoid this treatment until the effects have worn off (at least 3 months). This is because the treatment may counteract with the effects of Botox. Clients who have had plastic surgery or facial reconstruction should allow wounds to heal properly first, and to allow down time before commencing this treatment.
