Facial Rejuvenation & Cosmetic Acupuncture

Our faces show our life history. And the life we live.

Vibrant skin rejuvenation

The Well Body Cosmetic Clinic is uniquely designed to support your individual remedial dermatological needs with the latest advances in Facial Rejuvenation and Cosmetic Acupuncture.  

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture & Cosmetic Enhancement Acupuncture uses the very latest developments in cosmetic acupuncture across an advanced three tier range of treatments.  Whilst incorporating the latest revolutionary clinical treatments for facial acupuncture, this modern practice is rooted in the ancient, natural traditions of Chinese and Oriental medicine, dating back to the Sung Dynasty (960-1279AD), by the Empress and highest members of the Royal Imperial court.   In Chinese, it is called ‘Me Rong Zhen’, and is revered for its use to improve blood and fluid circulation,  reinvigorate collagen production, and stimulate the body’s fluid metabolism and natural anti-ageing processes.  As with all traditional acupuncture, it also addresses our body’s internal homeostatic balances and emotional wellbeing.  Our faces reflect our inner emotional life as well as the quality of life that we choose to live.  By treating the face remedially, treatment also seeks to bring greater stability, rejuvenate and balance our overall radiance and vitality – from the inside out.

The Well Body Facial Rejuvenation Treatments anchor these ancient healing techniques within a robust framework of the modern biomedical and clinical research.  Cosmetic facial acupuncture is also known as ‘Acupuncture Rejuvenation’ or ‘Acupuncture Facial Lift’  or ‘Acupuncture Cosmetic Enhancement’.  It is a safe, effective, painless and non-surgical method specifically designed to repair skin damage, treat clinical facial and skin conditions, as well as being the natural cosmetic intervention of choice to support the body as it ages.

A growing evidence base supports its effectiveness and use.   The International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported in a recent study, how 270 out of 300 people, after a single treatment, perceived noticeable improvements in facial repair with skin firmer to touch, reduction in fine lines, and improved tone and elasticity of the skin tissue.  As a superior cosmetic treatment, it is now routinely used in preference to botox, collagen fillers, threading and invasive surgical procedures which all carry not insignificant risks, and offer temporary or short term results only.  Awareness of Cosmetic acupuncture is steadily growing – as shown on Channel 4′s recent  How Not to Get Old and 10 Years Younger TV programmes.

With a specialist interest in emerging research, the Well Body Clinics Cosmetic, Facial and Skincare Clinics are designed to help men and women positively influence and enhance health and vitality, skin radiance and body confidence at all stages of life.  As well as addressing the underlying systems that nourish our skin, lungs and heart, to help us age well.  And to stay well.

Treatments may be used in the clinical treatment of facial discomfort or pain, or skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, acne, rosacea and sun damage.  It is increasingly also used to promote the health and regeneration of delicate skin tissue, facial and neck contouring, thread veins, scarring, and skin damage.

At different stages of life our bodies assimilate stress.  Our faces literally reflect this in the reshaping and profiling of the delicate tissue around the forehead, eyes, nose and mouth, as we start to show signs of wear and tear, and the visible signs of ageing.  Treatments work to support the body gently and naturally in its efforts to repair and regenerate cellular and dermal tissue, collagen, internal blood and fluid physiology, metabolism and hormonal balances, and the health, radiance and contour profiling of the face and neck.

Facial and cosmetic treatments may also integrated with constitutional acupuncture, to support the body’s deeper health.  Treatment programmes are designed to meet your individual needs and objectives, treating not just outward signs and symptoms but addressing the underlying trigger or cause.  The Well Body Clinics are rooted in this approach, and follow the classical practice of  Ben and Biao Treatment – Root and Stem Acupuncture – where treatment seeks not only to address the visible symptom, but also to effect a deeper, longer lasting response by addressing the weakness or deficiency.

Specialised ultra-fine, single use acupuncture needles are gently inserted at specific acupuncture points on the face, individually selected according to your constitution, diagnostic and remedial facial assessment and detailed pulse reading during your initial consultation.  Research indicates that facial acupuncture stimulates the movement and flow of blood through the dermis and skin tissue, reinvigorating muscles, increasing collagen production and removing metabolic toxins, and facial fatigue.   As the flow of nutrients is increased to the skin, fascia and structural muscles responsible for contouring and profiling the face and neck, this in turn promotes a synergistic increase or ripple effect through the deeper structures.  Facial acupuncture helps to regulate the balance of fluid and blood physiology throughout the delicate tissue of the face – increasing the efficiency of micro-fluid exchange at a cellular level, to nourish, rehydrate, and tone the skin’s quality.  Treatments improve muscle tone and dermal contraction, tightening pores, and increasing local circulation of blood and lymph through the face, reducing puffiness or odema, tightening sagging or loose skin, and decreasing inflammation.

Facial acupuncture also works energetically – strengthening the dynamic exchanges between the internal organ systems, responsible for lifting the flow of Qi (energy) to the face, neck, scalp and upper body.  In classical acupuncture, the delicate organ systems of the spleen, lung, kidney and liver are integral to the radiance and vitality of cellular and tissue health.  In Chinese Medicine, our faces literally show our internal state of health and wellness, as well as exhibiting if the underlying system is depleted, fatigued or needing additional support.   In this way, other constitutional  acupuncture points on the body may also be considered for their beneficial effect on general health and well-being of the body.

The Intermediate and advanced Facial and cosmetic treatments, integrate treatment with constitutional acupuncture, to support the body’s deeper health.  This is known as Ben and Biao Treatment – Root and Stem Acupuncture – where treatment seeks not only to address the visible symptom or facial appearance, but also to effect a deeper, longer lasting response by addressing the underlying health.

In the advanced facial acupuncture programme, synergistic points are used on the arms, legs and body to further strengthen the body’s energy, thereby enhancing vitality and radiance from the inside out. With this complete holistic treatment strategy, the aim is always to achieve a balance between improving exterior radiance and strengthening the internal energies that nourish, fuel and drive the system as a whole.

Facial Enhancement Acupuncture is the first tier of Cosmetic Rejuvenation treatment.  This Treatment Programme has been clinically formulated to nourish, tonify, firm, and enhance the delicate skin, tissue and structural muscles of the face and neck.  Treatment targets fine lines, wrinkles, sagging or loose skin, puffiness or oedema, and inflammation.

A relaxing acupressure massage using thumb and finger tips and a jade dermis roller, gently invigorates the face, head and neck, stimulating specific areas to activate and promote the regulation of blood and fluid, lymphatic drainage and the health and regeneration of cellular and dermal tissue, and collagen repair.

Gentle acupuncture is used on specific areas, isolating single or a pattern of active points across the face, neck, head and shoulders, to  stimulate global tissue health and function, and to nourish the structural and delicate muscles.   Treatment is very gentle and relaxing, with ultra fine, specialised cosmetic acupuncture needles, with your body’s feedback system occasionally signalling its response with a light or tingling sensation, or gentle dull ache.

Dermatological skin care products and clinical organic aromatherapy oils are also recommended to support your unique constitutional and skincare type, together with a facial acupressure and nutritional after care plan to optimise and extend the benefits of your treatments between each session.

This treatment programme may also be integrated with constitutional or root acupuncture, to support the body’s deeper health.  This is known as Ben and Biao Treatment – Root and Stem Acupuncture – where treatment seeks not only to address the visible symptom, but also to effect a deeper, longer lasting response by addressing the underlying health of the organism.

Cosmetic Rejuvenation Acupuncture is the second tier of Facial Rejuvenation treatments.  This Treatment Programme has been designed enhance the blood and fluid physiology of the skin and underlying organ systems that nourish the delicate skin, tissue and structural muscles of the face and neck.  Treatment aim is to target fine lines, wrinkles, sagging or loose skin, puffiness or oedema, and inflammation, as well as addressing weight, metobolism, and regulating fluid and hormonal exchanges in the body.

Super fine hair-thin needles are gently inserted into specific points on the face to facilitate the movement of blood and stimulate the production of collagen. This in turn nourishes, re-hydrates, tones and reduces the appearance of facial wrinkles.

Specialised frequency-specific electrically stimulated acupuncture may be  introduced to improve and enhance skin elasticity as well as the overall tone of the facial muscles.

Treatments aim to improve muscle tone and dermal contraction, increase collagen production, tighten pores, and increase local circulation of blood and lymph around the face. It can be used to firm loose skin surrounding the chin, jaw and neck, lift jowls and cheekbone profiling, and enhance profiling and contouring of the brow, face and neck.  Treatment also consolidates the benefits of the Facial Enhancement programme, further targeting remedial facial areas including double chin, jowel sagging jowls, and reduction of  inflammation, puffy or droopy eyelids, and global skin tissue.

This treatment programme is essential at addressing the underlying factors influencing the appearance of fatigued, or aging skin and tissue, on the face and throughout the body.

Micro Needle Therapy (MNT) is the revolutionary clinical treatment for facial acupuncture rejuvenation practiced at The Well Body Cosmetic Clinic.    

Acupuncture micro needling therapy is also known as derma rolling, derma-roller, or collagen induction therapy (CIT).  It works by stimulating the skin to produce new collagen and elastin in the papillary dermis.  A local anaesthetic cream is lightly applied, and a single ultra fine high grade micro needle is then delicately and painlessly applied along each specific area of the face requiring treatment, gently penetrating the upper layer of the skin.  Each single micro-needle makes a tiny micro-abrasion or clinically controlled stress area in the skin.  This area is so minute and fine, there is no damage outwardly to the face, and the procedure is pain free.

Micro-needle acupuncture therapy kick-starts the body’s natural healing mechanism.  Collagen and elastin production is stimulated, in an accumulative healing mechanism, building upon each new regenerative cycle  So new production of collagen and elastin steadily builds upon the existing levels at each treatment.

Each treatment uses a disposable single-use dermal roller that is used only for your treatment, and then disposed of in clinical waste.  As each treatment progresses, new collagen fibres are stimulated, ensuring that the overall appearance, vitality, elasticity, resilience and thickness of the skin noticeably improves throughout treated areas, with each single session.  As the micro needles penetrate the epidermis, they create fine micro-channels in the skin.  Clinical studies show that skin absorption is quantifiably enhanced by several 100%.  These channels close up within 90 minutes, ensuring that the lower levels of the skin dermis are deeply hydrated and nourished, enhancing and increasing the beneficial results of the treatment.

 

Micro-needle therapy (MNT) is shown to benefit a range of issues caused by lack of collagen:

Reducing fine lines and wrinkles

Acne scars and pitted scar reduction

Scar treatment

Pigmentation Marks

Open Pores

Micro-needle therapy (MNT) also helps skin penetration of high quality dermatological skin products – encouraging enhanced results, and leading to healthier, smoother, softer and more radiant skin.
