Here Jo Wright explains it in more detail…
What’s involved during a Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture treatment?
Very fine specialised Japanese sterile needles are inserted in points on both the body and face. A specialised technique is used to encourage the lifting, tightening and defining process to continue after the sessions.
How does Facial Revitalisation Acupuncture treatment work?
After the age of 20 collagen (natures strength and scaffolding for the skin and muscles) is produced less and less. In fact it dramatically reduces in synthesis after the menopause. The body still responds by producing collagen in response to any injury.
The good news is that it responds to any trauma no matter how tiny. The insertion of sterile needles in exact points gives the brain a message that there is a micro-trauma and the body produce new collagen and elastin.
Does it hurt?
There is minimal discomfort using the finest thin smooth Japanese needles. Most people feel no pain but sometimes a momentary twinge may be felt. The body’s natural painkiller –endorphins are activated at the same time
How many sessions do I need and how long will it last?
It varies from 6-12 2 hour sessions. Initial assessment will give you the best estimate for desired effects
A full course of treatment will give lasting effect for up to 2 years.
What is the cost?
£90 per 2 hour session
