Acupuncture- Cosmetic

This technique works to enhance the patients appearance and well being. Acupuncture works to achieve optimum results to ones appearance without harmful toxins or surgery. It has been used safely in China for thousands of years. Records dating from 960 BCE indicate it was originally used by the Chinese Emperors concubines.

Cosmetic Acupuncture uses acupuncture points and meridians on the face, and stimulates the flow of fresh blood containing oxygen, nutrients and collagen to the face which in turn helps diminish fine lines and wrinkles. Skin circulation is greatly improved and cosmetic acupuncture has been shown to enhance patients skin tone, tighten skin muscles and lift sagging skin. Cosmetic acupuncture has been shown to eliminate and reduce puffiness and bags under the eyes, tighten pores, treat hormonal skin imbalances and promote skin rejuvination via increased blood flow (Virginia Doran, 2010).

Tara has been fully trained in this technique by Virigina Doran, the world renowned leading expert in the field. A high level of skill is involved. This treatment uses many fine Japanese needles of the highest quality. It also incorporates a facial massage and it is a 1.5 hr treatment.

What happens during treatment?
During the first treatment, Tara will take a full consultation and history. As acupuncture is holistic, cosmetic acupuncture also works on the whole mind and body. During the consultation Tara will also talk to you about any thing else you might want treated. This is a totally natural treatment working with the body’s energy, and afterwards the patient will feel revitalised and their sense of well being will be improved. This is a fantastic alternative to medical and chemical treatments. After the consultation Tara will insert distal points in the legs and arms, before inserting tiny and very fine needles into the face. This treatment will be adapted especially to you and to your requests. Afterwards there will be a facial massage.

How many treatments do I need?
An immediate result can be evident after the first treatment, although significant improvements are usually after a number of treatments. Acupuncture is cumulative and someone who has 10-12 treatments will usually notice a better result than someone who just has one. Tara can discuss a treatment plan that is right for you at the time of treatment.

How long does it last?
Once you have achieved a result you are happy with, most patients come back once a month for maintenance. Generally it is advisable to have a course of 10-12 weekly treatments and then come back once a month to maintain the effect.

Does it hurt?
Tara uses the finest quality Japanese facial needles. They are extremely fine and do not usually cause much discomfort. Most people who have acupuncture describe it as numbness or a tingling sensation. Most people find the treatment very relaxing.
