Facial Acupuncture w/ Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture at Vitruvian Wellness | NW3 2BE London

This treatment will include both Facial Acupuncture as well as Traditional Chinese Acupuncture.

Facial acupuncture involves using acupuncture to improve the skin and fight the aging process. It works by stimulating the muscles of the face, using fine intradermal needles to increase tightness. As the needles puncture the skin, they create wounds, called positive microtraumas, within its threshold. When the body senses these wounds, it goes into repair mode. This will stimulate your lymphatic and circulatory system, which work together to deliver nutrients and oxygen to your skin cells, nourishing the skin from the inside out. It will also aid the production of natural collagen and thereby improve the overall quality of the skin.

Organic, plant-based creams have been selected and ancient Chinese stones are used on the face for microcirculation of the blood and lymphatic drainage.

During the treatment the therapist will also use the award winning Dermalux FLEX LED system. This system has been scientifically proven to accelerate cell renewal, boost collagen and increase the skin’s elastin.

This is a bespoke treatment combining both modern and ancient techniques to create the ultimate natural facial rejuvenation.
