Your Questions



Is it painful?

No. The needles are very fine and inserted quickly with great precision. It is no where near as painful as plucking your eyebrows. Most patients find it relaxing and, unlike having surgical procedures, there is no recovery time. Patients normally leave feeling rejuvenated and relaxed.

Can I have a treatment before getting my new passport photo?

It is not recommended to have facial acupuncture on the day of any important event. There can be mild bruising and swelling. However, I have found this greatly reduced with arnica cream and homeopathic remedies which can be taken prior to treatment.

What are the lasting effects?

This depends on the amount of treatment. There are minimal lasting effects after one treatment. However patients have reported a difference. For optimal results, patients should have a few regular treatments. This has been reported to last up to two years. However, the results can then be sustained with periodic maintenance treatments.
