The inserted thread will stimulate the under skin layers, which contains most of collagen, elastin connective and fat tissue. It helps to lift these layers, tighten skin, prevent the accumulation of fat and therefore reduce wrinkles.

COSMETIC ACUPUNCTURE

1. What is cosmetic acupuncture?

Cosmetic acupuncture is a non-invasive treatment that involves using acupuncture to improve skin and fight the aging process. It is also called “acupuncture facelift” or ” natural skinl rejuvenation”. Cosmetic acupuncture is often applied as an alternative treatment to surgical, botox and filler injection to improve the appearance of the skin.

Cosmetic acupuncture can help reduce wrinkles, diminish fine lines, remove age spots, and lift up droopy eyelids. A course of cosmetic acupuncture treatment involve at least 10 sessions, as well as additional sessions for maintenance of results.

2. How does it work?

“Nourish the skin. Rejuvenate your body!”

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese technique of balancing vital energy flow throughout the body. This treatment aims to stimulate self-healing capacity of the body and improve overall health. During the treatment, the inserted needles at acupuncture points help regulate the energy flow. Moreover, these needles evoke micro trauma to subcutaneous tissues, which trigger the body healing them by increasing blood flow to the affected areas. As a result, more nutrient is supplied, more immune cells available help clear inflammation, more collagen and elastin is also produced for the skin regeneration. Besides, acupuncture also addresses other factors that affect the skins ageing process, such as hormon problems, immune problems and oxidative stress.

The goal of the treatment is to create positive long-term changes in the health of the skin and body, not a short-term quick fix. It leads to better collagen production, better blood and lympho circulation over the treated region so that the skin is revitalize and heal itself. After the treatments you can expect a healthy brightened skin tone, reduced jaw tension, reduced wrinkles and also a better relaxed moods. 

3. How does it look like a treatment?

An overall health assessment and skin examination is conducted at the begining. Then the treatment starts with light skin massage and acupuncture (with special super thin needles) at certain places on the body. Ear acupuncture and nutrient/ moisture mask is also upon requested to complement the treatment result. The session focuses on skin bio-stimulation, activating its vital repairing and rejuvenizing process.

4. How long does it last?

One session lasts about 30 mins. It also depends on skin problems and the patient’s demand.

5. How frequent should I go for the treatment? How much time is needed to see the effects?

Unlike Botox or dermal fillers, cosmetic acupuncture is not a quick, unnatural fix of the skin. It helps achive healthy body and healthy skin from inside. The effects therefore takes time to achieve, but it can bring really long term positive changes.

In general, improvements can be seen after just 5 sessions of cosmetic acupuncture. l would recommend at least 10 treatments course to achieve the longlasting effect. You should go once or twice a week. When you reach the desired stage, you can continue with the maintanance treatment, which is less intensive – 1 treatment  in 2 weeks.

6. How much does it cost?

Facial cosmetic acupuncture: 19.000 Ft/ session

If you are being treated by a licensed experienced doctor, you do not have to worry about side effects.The most common side effect of cosmetic acupuncture is bruising. However, it only happends in around 3% of my patients. It is recommended that people with bleeding disorders, serious autoimmune diseases, high blood pressure, uncontrolled diabetes should not seek for this treatment.

8. What should I prepare before the treatment?

If you go for facial acupuncture treatment, please have your face free of make up. It is recommended to eat something before the treatment, too.

9. Is facial acupuncture better than Botox?

Each technique works differently to achieve the goal of more youthful complexion. Botox keeps your skin smooth by paralyzing the underlying muscular. However, its wonderful effect is short-term and basically repeated injections are given every 6 months. Besides, there are several potential adverse effects, some of which are quite severe, like asymmetries or loss of muscle movement.

Facial acupuncture is a more natural and longer term solution which helps the skin healthier from inside. It triggers micro-trauma to stimulate skin healing itself, increase in blood flow and production of collagen + elastin. Therefore it leads to reduction in wrinkles, improvement of skin tone. Moreover, acupuncture also bring other benefits such as a sense of relaxed, calm, better sleep, good mood, improved digestion and energy levels.
