3. Skin analysis - Serum application
Using a state of the art skin analysis instrument a diagnosis is performed to provide an exact readout of:
- skin texture
- sebum (oiliness)
With the technical data from this analysis a custom-made serums can be formulated whilst treatment is in progress. When needling is complete the skin is open and ready for greatest absorption. The serum will therefore infuse through the epidermis, directly into the dermis. Serums are formulated from all natural products and are used instead of creams as they can be prepared in higher concentration.
Each serum is prepared with particular attention being paid to :
- molecular stability
- pH level
- absorption rate
- skin penetration
The finished serum will be made using 100% natural ingredients (no chemical additives) A variety of products are used including:
- Hyaluronic acid (moisturize the skin)
- Vitamin C serum (collagen and elastin production)
- camu camu , zinc sulphate, tyrosine and essential oils such as : citrus, argan, aloe vera, rosemary, lemon grass, tea tree, green tea etc.
The primary effect of these tailor-made serums is to create brighter healthier skin which produces a more youthful appearance.
The noticeable effects are:
- Increasing hydration and moisture
- Reducing puffiness around the eyes
- Removing under-eye circles
- Healing areas of previous sunburn / sun damage
- Decreasing discolouration

There are 16 different masks available and each one has its own special properties. The skin analysis previously done will dictate which is the best mask to use as treatment progresses.
The primary effects of face masks are:
- Unclog pores and remove excess oils
- Deep cleansing
- Increased blood circulation (expansion of blood cells)
The end result is a wonderful fresh feeling and a radiant healthy glow in the face.
5. Facial massage – Jade roller
Chinese facial massage has long been an established beauty regime for Asian women. Using these age-old techniques stimulates the muscles through the stimulation of acupressure points and the whole process is completed using a jade roller. Once the serum has fully sunk in (usually after about 5mins) a cream is applied with a gentle pressure to selected acu-pressure areas of the face.
Depending on the client’s skin condition the cream used is either
- an anti-inflammatory vitamin E cream which promotes skin healing after the needling
- a collagen based cream if it is deemed that further collagen induction is required.
Clients may have their own preferred aromatherapy oils, for example organic rosehip which they know are suited to their skin. These can also be used if so desired. To complete the massage a paraben and perfume free natural moisturizer containing retinol palmitate (Vitamin A derivative) is applied to lock in moisture and promote collagen synthesis.
6. Ozone spray
The oxygen level of individual cells is a key component to facial beauty. Ozone is technically called O₃ which means it is ‘activated oxygen’ as it contains one more atom than oxygen - O₂. Water is oxygenated using an ozone generator and is applied to the face where the additional oxygen atom is free to attack pathogens and detoxifying the skin. The water applied with a nano-spray, as these very fine water particles infuse into the pores of the skin and also give a very pleasurable sensation after treatments.
When used on the face ozone nano-spray has the following attributes:
- Stimulation of skin cell growth
- Scavenges on harmful free radicals contained in toxins
- Powerful moisturizer
- Reduces cellulite
- Eases wrinkles
Ginger contains around 40 antioxidant compounds that protect against aging and improve the appearance of the skin. The antioxidants prevent damage from the free radicals and remove toxins and stimulates the circulation, resulting in the delivery of more nutrients to key areas, which improves skin elasticity.
8. Facial cupping
With full body cupping, cups are applied and left for several minutes. When they are removed there is often a very noticeable mark remaining, which usually takes several days to fade away completely. Facial cupping employs a different technique, whereby the much smaller oiled cups are glided over the face and décolleté in a smooth pulsing motion. This technique achieves the same effect as full cupping but without leaving any unsightly marks on the face.
Any combination of these techniques may be employed during the full 15 session facial rejuvenation program, depending on the needs of the client. The treatments shown above are not given in any particular order and are used at the discretion of the practitioner. The information provided is designed to give a description of all the products and procedures that are potentially included in the full package.
