Cosmetic Acupuncture is becoming increasingly popular as people become more conscious of the dangers of procedures such as botox and the availability of safe, natural treatments becomes more widespread.
Cosmetic acupuncture naturally encourages brighter skin tone, glowing complexion and overall more vibrant looking skin, without the use of any nasty chemicals or invasive procedures. Practitioners of Cosmetic Acupuncture traditionally use Helichrysum (immortelle) to decrease bruising and swelling while boosting the many positive effects of the treatment.
What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?
According to Naturopathic Doctor, Courtney Clayson-Russell...
Cosmetic acupuncture, also referred to as facial rejuvenation acupuncture, is a safe and effective therapy that specifically focuses on facial treatment. It can reduce the signs of aging, revitalize the skin, increase circulation, as well as stimulating collagen production. The treatment combines the use of facial needles, facial cupping, gua sha, jade rolling, and/or LED-therapy. Your treatment will include an individualized assessment by an acupuncturist or licensed Naturopathic Doctor with additional certification in cosmetic therapy, and a treatment plan to address your cosmetic concerns. So whether your goal is to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, increase elasticity, decrease puffiness, or reduce acne and breakouts, cosmetic acupuncture may be the treatment for you.
Helichrysum Hydrosol makes an invaluable addition to your post cosmetic acupuncture care, and your skincare routine in general, if the benefits listed above are something you’re looking for.
What is Helichrysum Hydrosol?
A Hydrosol is a pure product of hydro-distillation or steam distillation. It contains the water soluble compounds of the plant: acids, esters, monoterpenols and other alcohols. These are some of the most gentle components of the plant; anti-inflammatory, healing and especially useful for skincare.
Helichrysum Hydrosol, extracted from the flower of helichrysum italicum, is highly regenerative and healing to the skin. Helichrysum italicum is traditionally called "Immortelle" for its ability to bring youth to the skin and combat the signs of aging.
Why does Helichrysum Hydrosol go so well with Cosmetic Acupuncture?
Much like cosmetic acupuncture, Helichrysum’s main function in skin care is to stimulate fresh blood flow and healthy circulation in the area it’s being applied to. This makes it a synergistic addition to your cosmetic acupuncture treatment. Helichrysum is an incredibly effective anti-inflammatory for treating any type of trauma to the skin where there is swelling, bruising or puffiness. Used after cosmetic acupuncture, Helichrysum Hydrosol will not only help the skin to heal and recover quickly from any bruising or swelling that may arise, it will also boost the positive effects of the treatment. In general, Helichrysum Hydrosol brings a fresh, glowing, dewy effect to the skin by stimulating circulation and encouraging cell regeneration.
Another invaluable addition to your rejuvenating skincare regime is Helichrysum Essential Oil. Try a daily serum of Rose Hip Seed Oil with Helichrysum Essential Oil (we'll customize this for you!)
