Natural anti-aging treatment, St Albans
At Western Skin Institute, we offer Cosmetic Acupuncture and Holistic Micro-needling (with Platelet rich plasma (PRP)) as part of natural anti-aging treatment.
Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years as part of traditional Chinese medicine. It is recognized as effective by the World Health Organization with established guidelines for practice.
Cosmetic acupuncture has been reported to be an effective alternative to other injectable such as Botox and fillers. This cosmetic treatment is an extension of traditional acupuncture, and it can naturally help make the skin look younger, smoother, and all-around healthier. In other words, it addresses not only signs of aging, but also the skin and overall general health.
If you are interested in cosmetic acupuncture, you can make appointment to see our Integrative Dermatology Practitioner Dr Stephen Lai who can offer a proper aesthetic assessment and perform the cosmetic acupuncture by choosing the appropriate local facial points and distal points according to your skin and health conditions.
Micro-needling is penetration of skin by very small needles. The microneedles are spaced very close together which allow a high number of needles to penetrate the skin in a very small area. It aims to induce collagen and increase transdermal absorption of natural products (eg. PRP) through the skin. Derma-roller is one of commonly used devices for this purpose.
