Frequently Asked Questions

1. What happens during a treatment?

Your first treatment will include an initial assessment to make a diagnosis using Chinese Medicine theory.  The diagnosis sets the stage for the entire treatment’s success. Initial consultations are longer than follow up treatments as the practitioner will take a detailed history and discuss any other health concerns you may have. This is an ideal time to discuss possible treatment plans and make sure Cosmetic Acupuncture is suitable for you.

During the treatment very fine disposable needles will be used to correct any imbalances in the body, supporting the body’s health from within. Only very small needles are used on the face, where the focus is on problem areas such as wrinkles or acne scarring, for example. After the needles have been inserted you just relax for 20-30 minutes and let the acupuncture take effect.

2. Does it hurt?

The needles are so fine that they cause little or no pain. If you do not like a particular point we can simply remove the needle.  If this is your first time experiencing acupuncture, you will be shocked at how painless the procedure is, and most of my patients fall asleep during the treatment, after the needles have been placed.

3. Is it safe?

The needles we use are all sterile, single use (individually wrapped) and of a high quality. Please let us know if you have any medical conditions or are taking medication as this may affect our ability to treat you.Very rarely the patient develops a tiny bruise which is not harmful and will heal.

4. Are there any other benefits to treatments?

Absolutely! Almost all patients notice huge improvements in general health, mood and energy levels. If you are suffering from any other health complaints we can help with that at the same time.   It is actually important to establish other health related issues during the initial consultation, as we need to balance the entire body to ensure the treatments are effective.

5. How many treatments will I need?

As acupuncture is such a gentle (yet effective) therapy it is recommended that patients undergo a course of at least 10-12 treatments. However, if the face does not have very deep wrinkles then a course of 6 may be enough. You can discuss your course of treatment with your practitioner. After completing a course of treatments you will probably find that one monthly treatment is more than enough to keep you looking fabulous!

6. How long is each treatment?

Your very first consultation and treatment will last for 1.5-2 hours, with subsequent visits lasting one hour and a half.
