I Trained with Paul Adkins (Cosmetic Acupuncture UK) in 2019. The points in the face are stimulated to help the qi and blood come to fruition, this in turn helps the muscles to tone and creates the body natural collagen to help diminish fine lines and even out skin tone. Many of the traditional Chinese meridians end or start in the face, allowing Acupuncture to not only work locally, but to simultaneously treat underlying factors that contribute to the ageing process.
Cosmetic Acupuncture, in contrast, will require a course of treatment to show pronounced results. However, the whole face is treated and as body points are also used, a patient's health and wellbeing can be greatly improved by undertaking a series of treatments. Facial patients often report that they feel healthier, sleep better, have brighter eyes and feel more balanced.
