WHAT IS AN ACU-FACIAL?
An ACU-FACIAL is an facial treatment that gives a glow to your face in a minimum amount of time. It is the best of both worlds, a facial and a holistic treatment that goes under your skin. It is much more effective than the classic facial since it activates the collagen growth.
With the help of very fine facial and body needles, guasha and cupping, BLOOD and OXYGEN FLOW is supplied to the face and the tissue rejuvenation process begins.
It is most suitable for people who are looking to bring vitality to their face, tighten the pores and improve/preserve their complexion.
SO WHAT DO YOU DO EXACTLY ?
The ACU-FACIAL involves the following steps:
- Cleaning of the skin
- Application of hair-fine needles on several points on the face and body (15 minutes)
- Facial massage with a guasha tool (5 minutes)
- Facial cupping (5 minutes)
- Closing off with a serum and a moisturizer
WHICH PRODUCTS DO YOU USE ?
Best quality Japanese SEIRIN needles are used for maximum comfort. For cleaning and moisturizing of the skin Dr.Hauschka and Dermalogica products are used.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE ?
It takes around an hour.
WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS ?
It is a completely safe procedure however in rare cases minor bruising may occur since the face is rich of blood vessels, especially if you are prone to bruising. Therefore it is not advised to have the treatment 2-3 days prior to a big event. The other side effects are better sleep and relaxation.
HOW FREQUENT SHALL I HAVE THE SESSIONS ?
ACU-FACIAL is a great skin-care plan to preserve the vitality of your skin. You can have the treatments as frequent or spaced out as you like.
In order to give an initial boost to the skin and maintain the results, weekly sessions are advised in the initial 2 weeks and maintenance sessions every 4-6 weeks.
Really enjoy my acupuncture with Elif. She really knows the body and which areas to trigger for pain and needs. I have also had the Acufacial which I have to say is AMAZING! Your skin looks refreshed next day from the oxygen and blood flow to the face. THANK YOU and highly recommend Elif and BlueSky Acupuncture
