Facial Acupuncture is natural, non-surgical facial that more people are turning to as a viable ‘Natural Facelift’. It effectively lifts, plumps and smooths fine lines and is a natural alternative to invasive injections, fillers and chemical treatments. It involves placing tiny, painless acupuncture needles into various points on the face.
Kate’s Signature Facial was featured on Channel 4′s “How Not to Get Old” and was presenter Louise Redknapp's favourite alternative treatment hailing it “a miracle anti-ageing treatment”.
Many of Kate’s patients are in the public eye and they love the youthful, healthy glow they get from her highly-acclaimed Facials.
How does Facial Acupuncture work?
• Increased blood circulation => lymphatic drainage and detox
• Stimulates collagen => plumps up the skin
• Tightens muscles in the face and neck => lifting and firming
• Increases cell regeneration => fills in fine lines
• Regulates hormones => clearer, brighter skin
Kate's facials are all bespoke but start with an in-depth consultation to find out your skin concerns. You will also be asked about your general health to understand any underlying issues that may be contributing to your skin's appearance.
Around 20 tiny needles are placed on points on the face, neck and ears focussing on your areas of concern, and you are left to relax (yes it is relaxing!) for 15 minutes. The needles are then removed and micro-needling can be carried out (if requested), followed by a serum and finished with an exquisite few minutes of jade roller. You can find out more about in my Blog.
Kate’s Signature Facial has the option of adding Gold needles and Micro-Needling. In traditional Chinese Medicine, gold is known for its tonification properties and ability to sustain and restore harmony to the body.
Micro-needling is a minimally invasive treatment to rejuvenate the skin. A device with fine needles creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin. Results can include improved texture and firmness, as well as a reduction in scars and pore size. Micro-needling also enables the serum used at the end of the treatment to travel deeper into the skin. A great little boost at the end of your treatment!
