FACIAL REJUVENATION ACUPUNCTURE

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How does it work?

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture not only energizes the skin but also promotes the reproduction of skin cells. Similarly, this treatment works to lift and firm facial muscles thereby reversing the skin's tendency to sag with age. This leads to greater elasticity of the skin and a very radiant and healthy looking complexion.

What should I expect in a treatment?

Prior to treatment, Crispin will seek to determine any health issues that need addressing as well as discuss the aims and expectations each patient has. He will then typically move on to treat the body in order to eradicate any stress that may be present, as well as improve and regulate hormone responses. Following this he will treat the face and work to stimulate facial tissue as well as lift and firm facial muscles. Following acupuncture, he will conclude the treatment with a soothing facial massage.

What to expect after a treatment?

Following a treatment, one will initially feel very energized and clear and the skin will feel very alive. Visually, an improvement to the skin tone will be evident a day or so later and this process will continue after each treatment.

How many treatments do I need?

The best and longest lasting results are obtained from a course of twelve treatments. This is due to the treatment working accumulatively by promoting changes to the skin at a deep cellular level.

Does it hurt?

In the hands of an experienced practitioner this treatment is not as uncomfortable as plucking one's eyebrows. Crispin places great emphasis on making each patient as comfortable as possible and starts every treatment by using points on the body that have an anaesthetising effect. He then proceeds to treat the face with great precision and with the utmost sensitivity.

Is it safe?

This treatment is very safe when administered by an experienced practitioner. Crispin has studied this method intensively, has undertaken rigorous clinical training and has been practicing for over five years.

Are there any contraindications?

This treatment would not be suitable for pregnant women, for people with high blood pressure or those who suffer from migraines. Prior to any treatment, Crispin will seek to determine if any health issues are present and will always address them before treating the face.
