What to expect from Facial Enhancement Treatment
The initial consultation and treatment will last approx. 1 ½ hrs. The session will begin with taking a complete case history (see what to expect from Traditional Chinese Acupuncture Treatment). The treatment will also include some body points to address imbalances in the body.
The patient’s concerns and expectations regarding treatment will be explored and discussed. The patient will then be required to cleanse their face using the wipes provided. A local anaesthetic cream is then applied to give a subtle numbing effect, which provides additional comfort during treatment.
Treatment will begin with a few body points, followed by the facial acupuncture treatment. Needles used for a facial treatment are considerably finer than those used in standard treatment. Once the needles are inserted they are then retained in place for a further 15 minutes (approx.).
Following removal of the facial needles a high quality, professional strength serum will be applied, as absorption is greater after the needles are initially removed. Finally a luxurious post procedure cream will be applied to calm the skin and finish the treatment.
Subsequent appointments include a consultation to check on the progress of the patient and a further treatment – sessions last approx. 1 hr.
Usually, 8-12 treatments are required, with clients having at least weekly treatments, seeing benefits after 4-6 treatments.
