In our Northwich acupuncture clinic, we offer a wide range of services, which include therapies used purely for aesthetic reasons. Facial Revitalisation is often referred to these days as ‘Cosmetic Acupuncture’ although the term is not one that Acupuncturists are generally allowed to advertise.
The process of facial revitalisation involves the insertion of needles around the facial area, much as seen in the photograph above, and this process helps to encourage blood flow around the face and to give it a generally healthier appearance. Some of the most popular benefits facial revitalisation is believed to provide also include increased hydration. In result, the skin can have a more youthful appearance, as such therapy may reduce the visibility of wrinkles and blemishes. A crucial part is that it can be used by men and women at any age.
Some people who attended this kind of session have also reported an improvement in the condition of their skin. Facial revitalisation may therefore result in improved skin quality. This involves its colour (reduced or even eliminated eye bags or dark circles), as well as its elasticity. The therapy can even help improve sagging skin on the face, jowls and neck.
More mature skin may also benefit from such therapy. This type of acupuncture aims to stimulate collagen production. Collagen is a protein found in the body and today it also is widely used in cosmetic surgery. It is a major component of the skin – it plays a crucial role in its strengthening, elasticity and hydration. However, with age the body produces less collagen which leads to the formation of wrinkles and dry spots.
Moreover, facial revitalisation may also be used to help improve skin conditions an individual is struggling with. The most popular ones include acne, rosacea and eczema.
It is important to note that unlike a permanent cosmetic surgery solution, Facial Revitalisation using Acupuncture is mostly non-invasive, apart from the insertion of the fine needles, and does not leave any scarring.
The results vary from individual to individual, however, in our experience, we have found that after a single session there is usually a noticeable difference, and after a course of acupuncture, patients often have a noticeable glow about their face which people can see and comment on.
What are some of the differences between Botox, surgery, fillers and facial revitalisation? First of all, plastic surgery and procedures tend to be more expensive. Second of all, facial revitalisation unlike many plastic surgeries is not permanent. Our appearance is forever-changing, which means that after some time, even years after a medical procedure the effect may not be as prominent as it was at the beginning. Acupuncture, on the contrary, is a non-permanent non-surgical method and the results are not long-lasting.
As with any acupuncture treatment, the effects are likely to be short term and whilst they are non-invasive and leave no scarring, the results are typically temporary.

Disclaimer: At Acupuncture That Works we are conscious that there are lots of claims made about the results that people can get from using Acupuncture. To be clear, we aim to make no such claims ourselves. We will never claim that Acupuncture will work within a specified time nor that it will bring a specified result. We can say that is possible to deliver short term improvement and short term relief in certain circumstances. It is not and never will be, a miracle cure.
