Lisa Snowdon shares painful looking selfie during facial acupuncture session

The 46-year-old shared snaps of her face covered in needles in a bid to combat the effects of a cold amongst other things but told her 199,000 Instagram followers that the experience was far from painful.

She wrote: "I really needed this today… been so busy, had no time for myself over the last month, my hormones have been all over the place, my sleep all messed up and as a consequence I’ve felt so run down and got hit with another bloody cold.

"@sarahbradden needles and reflexology and her heavenly healing vibes have helped to boost my immune system and heal my body.

Adding: "Now I know that it looks pretty freaky not to mention painful, a cross between and hedgehog and cats whiskers but I promise you I wouldn't keep going back if it hurt, George even goes to see Sarah now as well as lots of my friends.

"The aftermath of the treatment is…. I do feel pretty wiped out now, it's not always like that, depends on the treatment which is always different and tailor made to your needs, I also feel a little emotional, but I think it's mostly an intense feeling of gratitude at having finally had some TLC from Sarah and knowing I really needed it.

She said: "I'm going to listen to my body, rest and chill tonight and eat yummy warm food to nourish my system, and tonight I pray for an epic night's sleep."

Lisa's cosmetic acupuncture is touted as a natural alternative to Botox, and involves having up to 200 needles inserted into the face and ears.

The treatment is said to improve skin moisture, reduce inflammation from skin conditions, aid hormone balance and general wellbeing.

Lisa, who has been modelling since she was 19, is known for trying different treatments and recently revealed she tried a bizarre gold leaf face mask that keeps her looking youthful.

Last month, the model showed off the "completely decadent" facial on Instagram.

Lisa called the costly procedure "luxurious" and said it helps "support the skins collagen, resulting in glowing, healthy, plumper skin, improves circulation".

"Living my life like its GOLDEN! Had the most luxurious golden skin renewal facial yesterday.

A"I was literally wrapped in pure 24K Gold Leaf which was applied in three stages."

She had the treatment – which reportedly costs £160 for a 50ml bottle – applied to her cheeks, nose, lips and chin.

Lisa added: "You know I’m all about the glow, this facial takes it to another level."
