Cosmetic Acupuncture in Wilmslow
Cosmetic Acupuncture is the latest option in the battle against anti-aging, but you may be surprised to find that it is not necessarily a new treatment, it’s actually been around for several decades and acupuncture in its original form originated more than 2,000 years ago and can be used to treat a range of health problems including body pain and headaches.
More recently, Cosmetic Acupuncture has become a popular alternative to other cosmetic treatments. Instead of automatically turning to Botox or cosmetic surgery many individuals want a more natural solution to the aging process. The likes of Jennifer Anniston, Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie have converted to this treatment and are exponents of it. Data from the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons showed that the number of cosmetic procedures carried out in 2016 fell by 40% as more and more people look for holistic treatments.
So, is Cosmetic Acupuncture safe? In 2003 the World Health Organisation officially backed acupuncture as a medical treatment. It listed a range of conditions for which it has proven to be effective. It’s also far safer than having cosmetic surgery where anaesthetic is used.
But you may be wondering how cosmetic acupuncture can improve the skin on your face so that things like fine lines, wrinkles and sagging are reduced? The process of acupuncture involves inserting tiny needles at pressure points in the face. When this is done energy and endorphins are released. In addition, the minor trauma caused to the face improves blood flow and stimulates cell regrowth. However, when giving a facial acupuncture an experienced practitioner will treat the whole body and not just the face in order to enhance the appearance of the skin.
After a few sessions many who have had cosmetic acupuncture notice that their skin was rosier, clearer, and cheeks were plumper. Fine lines were also less visible!
