COSMETIC ACUPUNCTURE IN GLASGOW

Cosmetic acupuncture is a revolution in the anti-aging field. It is a rejuvenation and revitalization process designed to help the whole person to look and feel younger. The treatment is based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine and will be done by your acupuncturist. Cosmetic Acupuncture is a painless and non-invasive method of reducing the signs of the ageing process.

Facial Rejuvenation with acupuncture, involves the insertion of hair-thin needles into particular areas of the face and body along meridians of energy called Qi.

Facial Acupuncture is used to stimulate collagen production, treat muscle tightness or weakness, restore pigmentation and discolorations, treat acne and tighten the skin of the neck and décolleté (lower neck and shoulders).

How many sessions do I need?

Many people will just need a half course (5 sessions) or one treatment every couple of weeks. However, it is also a great treatment as a one-off facial to feel refreshed and radiant. A full treatment protocol is 10 sessions, preferable once a week. Following the initial protocol, maintenance treatments once every couple of months are ideal. Some people may need even less.

Rejuvenating results may last for up to one year but everyone is different. It is very important to follow a healthy life style and have a balanced diet. We do not recommend this treatment if you are a heavy smoker and/or drinker because you may not notice all the benefits of this treatment.
