Facial acupuncture is the application of very fine needles inserted into the skin of the face and neck for a natural anti-ageing treatment that aims to rejuvenate overall elasticity & complexion.
Laurie is trained in AcuRegen® Cosmetic Acupuncture. The AcuRegen® system combines Traditional Chinese Acupuncture with safe, gentle techniques using needles specifically designed for the face by Amanda Shayle, the founder of AcuRegen®.
The needles work to open up micro-channels where areas of sub-dermal scaffold (the tissue that supports the epidermis) has weakened and collapsed. This action induces the body’s natural healing mechanism which encourages the production of collagen and elastin. This rebuilds the tissue scaffold by adding to the collagen levels that already exists and effectively “pack” the epidermis out reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Improvement of circulation is part of this process also enhancing skin tone and texture.
