FAQS

Below are answers to my patients’ frequently asked questions. If there is something I’ve missed, please don’t hesitate to ask. For more information, get in touch. I look forward to meeting you soon.

 

 IS ACUPUNCTURE PAINFUL?

Acupuncture needles are very thin and therefore very different to other needling procedures.  Whilst some people may experience a very mild amount of discomfort as the needles are inserted, this should fade as soon as the needle is in place.

WILL I EXPERIENCE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?

Whilst you may experience a small amount of bruising post-treatment, every measure is taken to minimise the likelihood of this happening.

CAN I USE THIS TREATMENT IN CONJUNCTION WITH BOTOX OR OTHER FACIAL AESTHETIC PROCEDURES?

Cosmetic acupuncture can be safely used with other treatments but we would recommend leaving at least 72 hours between FACE and any other facial aesthetic treatments.

WHO IS NOT SUITABLE FOR THIS TREATMENT?

Individuals with unstable heart conditions and unstable diabetes

Those with allergies to nickel or copper

Pregnant women

Tumours of the pituitary gland
