Studies published in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture, 1996, showed that, ” of 300 people who received facial acupuncture, 90 % demonstrated marked results after only their first treatment.”


How does it Facial rejuvenation Acupuncture work?

Extremely fine needles are used in points on the body; with the aim to improve inner health and aid relaxation, and points on the face; to target fine lines, wrinkles, improve circulation, and increase elasticity of the skin and tone of the facial muscles. It is reported that facial acupunctureincreases the water and oil content in the skin and aids the skins natural production of collagen to lift out the fine lines and wrinkles.

Detox points can also be used through acupuncture points on the ear, which is believed to target organs such as the liver, impairment of the liver can lead to wrinkles, dark spots and a dull complexion, kidneys, impairment can lead to accelerated age, contributing to wrinkles and thin hair, the spleen, impairment of the spleen can lead to skin losing tone, sagging, and puffiness of the face and eyes, the heart, points can be used to calm the heart as stress can cause wrinkles, the lungs, impairment of respiration can lead to dryness of the skin (Jonathan Hobbs, FacialRejuvenation Cosmetic Acupuncture Course, May 2017).


Why choose a physiotherapist to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles?

Claire and Sarah have been practising acupuncture for many years, using it successfully for reducing pain. They began practising facial rejuvenation acupuncture as the popularity of this form of beauty treatment increased.

By receiving facial rejuvenation acupuncture from Claire and Sarah you can be confident in their training, professionalism and confidentially.  You have added reassurance that they are registered, and chartered physiotherapists dedicated to delivering the highest quality of treatment and care. Claire and Sarah are also members of the Acupuncture Association for Chartered Physiotherapists (AACP) and have completed the Facial Rejuvenation Cosmetic Acupuncture Foundation Course to deliver safe, effective and up to date treatment.


What happens during treatment?

On your first appointment a full assessment of your lifestyle, problem areas, goals and expectations will be explored to guide treatment.

For facial rejuvenation acupuncture to be administered, you will be laying down on a plinth, with pillows for comfort.  We will provide a headband to keep your hair away from your face during the treatment.  You will want to wear comfortable clothing and may need to expose your lower legs and arms. 

Depending on your individual needs, Claire and Sarah may decide initially to carry out a detox treatment which would involve acupuncture needles being inserted into your ears and lower leg.  This is to support your overall health, improving circulation, complexion and your general wellbeing.

Total Care Physios are also Tropic Skincare Ambassadors, as the core values and ethos of the company are similar to Total Care Physio.  Tropic products are free from any nasty chemicals and one of the few companies leading the way in compassionate and ethical beauty products, being certified by PETA, Cruelty free international (the leaping bunny symbol) and the Vegan Society; beauty with a conscience.  Their ethos is pure, honest, and effective.  Also very importantly they are a carbon negative company, meaning they add to the health of our environment and don’t take away from it.  Their skin range is 100 percent naturally derived, made fresh, having the highest nutritional value for your skin, with no artificial preservatives. Tropic informs us that 75-95 percent of the products on the market today are full with parabens and similar chemicals, partly because they are cheaper. Unfortunately 70 percent of what we put on our skin is absorbed into our bloodstream which can cause more harm than toxins that we eat.

For these reasons, Total Care Physio will only be using Tropic Skincare products during the cosmetic acupuncture treatment. All make up will need to be removed prior to your beauty treatment, don’t worry if you have makeup on as this can be removed with our Tropic Smoothing Cleanser, which we use to cleanse your face before using the fine needles. Once the needles are removed, we use Vitamin Toner and Skin Revive (Tropic ABC Facial) to increase local skin circulation and aid treatment. We may use serums, choice between Organic Elixir or Super greens, if it is seen advantageous to do so. Also during the treatment you will have the option of choosing a relaxing foot or hand massage.

As Tropic Ambassadors, the full range of products are available to purchase through ourselves.


Fine Lines and Wrinkles

For your fine lines and wrinkles, several needles will be placed into these areas, concentrating on where you consider to be most problematic.  These needles will be left in for a set time depending on your needs and then slowly removed.  There may be some discomfort whilst the needles are being inserted. 

It is best not to have your treatment around the same time as a big social event as there is a possibility of small red marks or bruising where the needles have been.

Results vary between individuals but accumulate over a course of sessions.  Treatment will vary between individuals but generally it is recommended to have weekly or twice weekly for an initial 6-12 sessions then once we have achieved the desired result this will need to be maintained with monthly or every 2-3 months.
