Facial Acupuncture- The new player at Pure Salon!
what about for a natural face lift? Yup, that’s right, cosmetic acupuncture has garnered quite the following amongst celebrity fans as a natural alternative to Botox (Gwyneth Paltrow, Madeleine West, Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie included).
Cosmetic Acupuncture is an ancient practice used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and dates back to the Emperors in China. It was a common practice used by Geishas and concubines and it’s still around today!
Say goodbye to Botox, fillers and all the stuff in between. This technique is completely natural, safe and relatively pain free (unless you’re scared of needles).
Rather than filling your skin with chemical injections, your face will instead be covered with fine acupuncture needles that create an instant lift and over time, can erase fine lines and wrinkles. It’s also great for helping with acne and other skin conditions.
Cosmetic acupuncture has been known to reduce puffiness, reduce wrinkles, increase collagen in the face and soft surrounding areas, treat acne, relieve stress, give you glowing skin, reduce scarring and prevent wrinkles.
