Cosmetic Acupuncture

What is Facial Cosmetic Acupuncture and how does it work?

Facial Cosmetic Acupuncture is by no means a new treatment, the Chinese have used this technique for over 2000 years to fight the war on ageing. It is an aesthetic treatment that helps to reduced the visibility of fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles and improves overall skin quality. The specifically placed needles increase blood flow within the deeper layers of the skin, which improves oil and water content and stimulates collagen production. This helps to plump the skin to improve tone and skin quality, resulting in younger looking skin.

How is it different to Botox®?

Cosmetic acupuncture is a natural anti-ageing treatment that acts in the opposite way to BOTOX®, as it encourages a natural healing response within the tissue. BOTOX® is essentially a poison that blocks acetylcholine within the muscle to prevent the muscle from contracting. Over a period of 3-4 months the body recovers from the “poison” and the muscle returns to normal, although it has not been able to contract for a few months, so now its weaker and has lost more tone.

So if you are looking for a long-term solution to fight the war on ageing then you should consider Facial Cosmetic Acupuncture.

Benefits of Facial Cosmetic Acupuncture

  • Brightens complexion
  • Improves skin tone and elasticity
  • Stimulates collagen production
  • Improves facial muscle tone
  • Increases cell regeneration
  • Smooths fine lines and wrinkles
  • Regulates and balances hormones
  • Reduces dark circles

What the treatment involves

Following a detailed initial consultation to determine specific areas of focus, your Cosmetic Acupuncture Manchester practitioner will insert very fine acupuncture needles into specific points on the face, and possibly the ears, neck and body if appropriate. The needles will remain in situ for 10-15 minutes before being removed using expert techniques to avoid bruising. Your Cosmetic Acupuncture practitioner will then complete the session with a short facial massage to relax the face and further facilitate blood flow under the skin. We recommend that you bring your preferred facial moisturiser along to sessions to avoid any adverse reactions to products that you do not usually use.

FAQ’s

How many sessions will I require?

A recommended treatment course is 6-12 sessions spread over a 3-4 month period.

Does the treatment hurt?

There is mild discomfort as some of the needles are inserted, but after that it can actually feel relaxing.

Do I have to be make-up free?

We would recommend applying light makeup only as we may need to remove this prior to treatment. We can provide make up removing wipes if required.

Can I have the treatment during pregnancy?

The short answer is yes. However, we would advise against it as your skin will already be of a better quality during pregnancy, so it would be advisable to save your money until that little bundle of joy arrives. Then treat yourself of course, you will definitely deserve it!

How can I retain the affects of the treatment?

Facial Cosmetic Acupuncture is more affective in those who lead a healthy lifestyle, so we would recommend regular exercise and a healthy balanced diet to enhance the affects of the treatment.

How much does it cost?

  • Initial Consultation and Treatment – £125

I genuinely couldn’t recommend these guys enough. I ruptured my Achilles’ tendon in January this year, and I knew I needed to find a physio with a professional sports background to get me back to the level I needed to be at. They helped me throughout lockdown whenever possible, and was always on hand with any help or advice I needed. Once I became more mobile and had reached the level where I could really start pushing hard again, I was introduced to Tom. This couldn’t have come at a better time, as I was at a level where I was ready to bridge that gap between feeling strong again, but not quite ready for the explosive aspect of my job. Tom recognised straight away what needed to be addressed, and he broke down all the big movements with me over the next few weeks. He took me from not having the confidence in my Achilles to single leg hop, to sprinting close to 100% in the space of 3 weeks. His knowledge is second to none and I’m so grateful to him and the rest of the guys at the physio lounge for getting me back to where I needed to be. Aside from that, all the staff are great people, friendly, and only have you’re best interests at heart.

Developed severe lower back pain through working from home during the Covid-19 pandemic. Phsyio Lounge carried out ergonomic desk assessment (with Craig) and had 4 video physiotherapy sessions with Sam which has worked wonders. Improved with every session, almost pain free, but left fully understanding what i need to do to make the final step be be totally pain free. Initially sceptical about video sessions but they did work effectively. Sam was very professional, fully explained everything in detail throughout the course of treatment. Well impressed with set up. Would definitely recommend. Thank you Sam, thank you Physio Lounge. P.S. The exercises have even improved my golf swing!! Bonus!

I would like to thank The Physio Lounge for the recent help i received. I had hurt my lower back and was in extreme pain. I thought due to the covid 19 restrictions i would have to suffer. However i contacted the Physio Lounge and a video call was set up . Craig was extremely sympathetic, knowledgeable and professional. He soon set me up with exercises and regular updates. I highly recommend The Physio Lounge .

Had a virtual assessment with Craig due to a running injury during lockdown. I was so pleased with the virtual appointment and didn’t expect to receive such a fabulous service and excellent advice on a video appointment. Thank you Craig you’ve helped me to continue with my running during lockdown. An excellent service provided even in these difficult times.

I have been attending The Physio Lounge since September 2019 twice a week after a serious motorcycle accident with very complex injuries. I have nothing but admiration for Craig and his colleagues dealing and treating me. They have shown me total respect, and without doubt have made my recovery better and quicker than I could of ever expected. I am very fortunate that my case manager engaged The Physio Lounge to help and manage the physio treatment I needed. I can not sing loud enough the praises for Craig and his staff in helping me.

Worked with Craig from the Physio Lounge. He has helped me massively with lower back pain due to over rotation of my spine. He has helped to treat my current symptoms with acupuncture and has also created a bespoke programme for me to follow which has helped to solve the issue on a long term basis. I would highly recommend him and the Physio Lounge!

I can honestly say that in all my time of training in a gym, bodybuilding and training 100's of clients I have never come across a Physio who is this knowledgeable as Craig. His thirst for learning is evident! He regularly ensures he is up to date with the latest science led studies to ensure he is helping his clients the best way. On top of that he is highly professional and very comfortable to be around. He puts you at ease and listens and asks all the right questions to diagnose you. He is worth traveling to I will never go anywhere else! Thank you Craig, you have changed my life!

I have been treated by Craig at the Physiolounge several times over the last few years for various different running injuries. I’m always impressed by his knowledge, dedication and skill. He even managed In the last few weeks to remotely diagnose and cure a knee problem I had! I would highly recommend Physiolounge.

Following a bad skiing injury to my shoulder and fearing the worst, I have been nothing other than thoroughly impressed with the PhysioLounge. I was thankfully able to see Craig for a 'live' consultation pre-lockdown, and then have had 4 online physio sessions which have worked perfectly and through which he has enabled me to build up strength in the shoulder. Not only that, but he has also attended to weaknesses in posture and physique that will hopefully benefit me in future triathlons (looking ahead in faith!)
