Surgery and chemical free, holistic facial treatments
Cosmetic Acupuncture or Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture (FRA):
This procedure is for those people interested in their appearance but who don’t want to use surgery or chemicals. Treatments include a variety of stimulating and relaxing techniques to leave your skin feeling refreshed and revitalised. Needles are inserted into the wrinkles that you desire to reduce as well as certain acupuncture pointsand and are left in situ for 30 minutes. The needles cause fine injury to the base of wrinkles and the healing process causes the deposition of collagen. After removal other techniques are used to either stimulate or relax the skin and muscles. The procedure takes approximately 1 hour. For best results a course of 6 treatments is advised with a top up treatment monthly to maintain the effect.
In order to get the maximum benefit from FRA a course of at least 6 treatments is advised and a monthly follow up session is recommended to maintain the effects. The length of treatment and degree of success depends on the individual ad the degree of correction required.
Cosmetic Acupuncture can also reduce the appearance of cellulite by a combination of needling and cupping techniques. Call to find out more information of either of these procedures on: 020 8123 9404.

“I had an amazing facial treatment with Alison. The effects of the acupuncture, massage and heat treatments were immediate for me and made me feel great! I was wary of the acupuncture before I went but it was totally pain free and I can highly recommend you give it a try if you need a bit of a boost!”
