History of facial rejuvenation acupuncture
Cosmetic acupuncture has been practiced in China for thousands of centuries. Early records date back to the Qin and the Song Dynasties. In those days, cosmetic acupuncture was the best beauty treatment available to the Empress and to the Emperor’s Concubines. With the exposure of TCM to the western world, cosmetic acupuncture has become widely available and is now practised around the world.
Cosmetic acupuncture for facial rejuvenation
Cosmetic acupuncture is acupuncture used for cosmetic purpose. Fortunately though, acupuncture also promotes relaxation, increases serotonin and endorphins, our natural feel good and pain relieving hormones and reduces inflammatory markers that contribute to inflammatory conditions, so the use of acupuncture cosmetically can have profound effects on your whole person.
Sometimes described as ‘acupuncture for facial rejuvenation’ or simply ‘facial rejuvenation’, cosmetic acupuncture offers a non-surgical method of reducing the visible signs of the ageing including fine lines and wrinkles, rough texture, the appearance of prominent pores and age spots, uneven skin tone, surface dullness and dryness. It has the added benefit of improving general health and well being at the same time.
Cosmetic acupuncture for facial rejuvenation is a safe and effective alternative to botox, collagen injections or even cosmetic surgery at a fraction of the price of those procedures.
Why is carahealth unique?
I use a combined combination therapy, which includes the standard needling of facial points with what is called a dermal hammer or seven star needle or plum blossom needling technique. A dermal hammer is a small hammer with 7 needles that is tapped over channels or in this case lines to completely eliminate fine lines and minimise deep ones. It is by far the most effective acupuncture treatment for facial rejuvenation.
It is especially effective for refining pores and eliminating facial veins. Treatment lasts 1 hour and costs 60 euro. I recommend weekly treatments to begin with and then maintenance visits every 6 weeks for best results, reducing eventually to every 6 months only.
