Cosmetic Acupuncture, sometimes called facial rejuvenation acupuncture, is the newest weapon in the anti ageing war for men and women. Many celebrities have tried this treatment including Hollywood stars and loved it. Some clinical reports have shown positive results. It is a non-invasive, non-surgical method for reducing fine lines around the eyes, lips and nose. It can also help to reduce bags from under the eyes and firm chin lines. In most cases, cosmetic acupuncture may reduce age spots, lift droopy eyelids, tighten pores and brighten eyes. Because cosmetic acupuncture can also increase blood circulation and drains away toxins, patients feel younger as well as having a healthy glow and vibrant complexion.
Many patients have described that this treatment can take several years off their faces. Dr Bhatti can also advise on anti ageing nutrition which can play a crucial role in the improvement of skin and overall health. This is partly due to the fact that if conditions such as acne or dry skin are brought under control people feel better about themselves, more confident and generally are more fulfilled with life.
Cosmetic Acupuncture is becoming increasingly popular amongst Hollywood stars, models and people who are searching for a safer and more natural way to stay looking and feeling young. In 1996 a report in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among the 300 cases treated with Cosmetic Acupuncture, 90% had marked effects with just one course of treatment. Another 2012 study published in the British Medical Journal concluded female participants who were the age of forty who had facial cosmetic acupuncture may have contributed to the enhancing and appearance of the skin by affecting the oil and water content of the skin.
The acupuncture we do in our clinic is needle free. This procedure can improve the movement of energy, nutrients, oxygen and lymphatic fluid to the face and body may result in stimulated and increased collagen production, nourishment, hydration and tone. One side effect of this treatment results in relaxation of the muscles on the face, head and body which comes as a bonus with better-looking skin.
