Facial Enhancement Therapy Chelmsford

A Natural Way to Achieve Clearer Skin for All Ages

Facial Enhancement Therapy (F.E.T) which includes Facial acupuncture and Dermaroller Therapy is the natural and healthy way to look and feel years younger!

Facial enhancement therapy uses two main treatment techniques; Facial acupuncture (also known as cosmetic acupuncture) which originated from China and has been practiced for thousands of years, and Dermaroller Therapy (also known as micro needling therapy). These therapies can be used independently, however both complement each other and by combining the two we have found far more profound benefits for the patient. At Faye Pattison Physiotherapy, only highly skilled physiotherapists registered with the CAUK and AACP are available to offer this type of treatment, so you know you are in safe hands and the treatment provided is from a therapist with advanced knowledge in anatomy, physiotherapy and the additional Facial enhancement therapy skills required.

Cosmetic and Facial Acupuncture

Cosmetic Acupuncture is a totally natural and holistic anti-ageing treatment offered at our clinic in Chelmsford, that aims to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It also works on lifting the face particularly around the ‘jowls’ and cheek area. It is an excellent natural alternative to the more invasive treatments such as Botox®. It is a natural and healthy way to look and feel years younger!

What Is Facial Acupuncture Therapy?

Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years; although it is still considered relatively new to the West, the Chinese have been using points on the face to combat the signs of ageing and to help with various skin conditions for many, many years and is a cornerstone of Facial Enhancement Therapy at Faye Pattison Physiotherapy. The therapy uses acupuncture techniques on points of the face to improve muscle tone and skin contraction, in turn helping to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. Facial acupuncture therapy also helps to reduce sagging skin and eliminates puffiness of skin – promoting better skin circulation and helping to correct colour tones. Facial enhancement therapy Chelmsford will leave your skin feeling revitalised with a greater sense of wellbeing; it’s also a much better alternative to other medical and chemical treatments.

What Happens During the Treatment?

The acupuncture treatment will concentrate on traditional points and muscles of the face, in order to improve the elasticity of the skin and improve the overall appearance. Facial acupuncture therapy Chelmsford will not only leave your skin feeling rejuvenated and radiant, but you will also begin to feel happier and more confident as a result.

Fine, sterile needles are inserted into the skin, by inserting a needle we aim to improve blood flow, oxygen and nutrients to the area and stimulate natural cell re-growth and collagen in addition to eliminating toxins. The improvement in circulation helps the body to rejuvenate. Not only do our therapists place needles in the face, we also sometimes use a few selected points on the body. Clients having visited our Chelmsford Clinic often report that they feel healthier, sleep better, have brighter eyes and feel more balanced. The acupuncture points we use are chosen specifically to assist with this feeling of wellbeing.

What Results Can I Expect to Receive?

We recommend a course of treatment to show pronounced results and combined with the Dermal roller, we achieve great results, however single sessions of one or the other are available if you wish to just ‘experience’ the benefits.

Improvements will be visible from your very first treatment, but significant improvements are usually clearer once you have had the treatment a few times. It’s entirely up to you how you would like the treatments; you may decide to have a few treatments during the build up to a special occasion or you may want to have it regularly throughout the year.

Dermaroller Therapy

Dermaroller Therapy is a revolutionary technique also known as Collagen induction therapy / Micro Demal Roller therapy and Micro Needling Therapy. It was invented in 2009, in Germany. It is becoming more widely used around the world today within the cosmetic world and is now available at our Chelmsford Clinic.

How Do Dermaroller Treatments Work?

The roller has approximately 580 micro-needles in each roller. During the treatment, the roller is rolled over the face which stimulates the inflammatory process and promotes a number of benefits including the reduction of appearance of fine lines, less visible pores and improvement in acne, stretch marks and surgical scaring.

The skin rejuvenation treatment involves a special roller with tiny needles along its surface, which make lots of shallow punctures in the skin. The tiny punctures stimulate a healing responses within the skin, encouraging cell renewal the production of collagen and elastin. Dermaroller therapy Chelmsford helps to rejuvenate the appearance of the skin, helping to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and improve the appearance of marks and scars.

The aim is to stimulate the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and more importantly safely which creates the healthier, brighter, younger looking skin (you)! Dermaroller is also used as a natural scar repair therapy and stretch mark removal therapy. Combining facial enhancement acupuncture and advance micro-needling – Collagen Induction Therapy together can also significantly improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, firmness, enlarged pores and acne scarring.

The treatment is a fairly pleasant experience with very little pain involved. A course of treatments is recommended in order to see the most noticeable results, but many people see visible results after just one treatment. Our friendly practitioners will be able to assess your skin and determine how many treatments you are likely to need.
