    Facial Acupuncture: How does it work?

    Facial Acupuncture

    Facial Acupuncture (also know as Cosmetic Acupuncture) has been said to be one of 2016's Top Beauty Trends. Many modern women are looking for more natural ways of maintaining healthy looking skin and staying away from the toxic botox injections and fillers so present in many female beauty regimes. 

    How Does It Work?

    Facial Acupuncture works by stimulating blood and nutrients to the skin of the face. The needles also help muscles to relax and tighten the skin, collagen is also boosted by making micro-wounds in the skin, which the body then heals, thus stimulating the collagen to be produced. You can get some minor bleeding at the site of the needles and occasionally a small bruise. As Facial Acupuncture is a whole body treatment other conditions such as headaches, sleep disorders, weight loss and many other conditions may also be treated.

    Acupuncture: The Treatment of Cesarean Scars

However, currently I don't feel enough hands on treatment it offered to improve the healing of the scar tissue itself. I think physiotherapists do a great job with the core stability advice, postural advice and pelvic floor strengthening but currently there is not enough hands on treatment of the actual scar and surrounding scar tissue (the scar tissue is much more widespread than the scar you see on the surface of the skin). Restrictions in the scar (adhesions) can cause a lot of pain, restricted movement, digestive issues and potential problems with further pregnancies. Doctors aren't well equipped with solutions and tend to give the same old 'just give it time to heal' advice to most women.
