No pain, no gain!

Model Rachael Finch indulges in cosmetic acupuncture to boost ‘elasticity’ in her face after a long week of race meets in Melbourne

Model Rachael Finch is one of the yummiest mummies in modelling but even she fears the onset of wrinkles marring her porcelain skin. The 26-year-old former Miss Universe Australia took time out from her busy schedule by asking leading cosmetic acupuncturist, Vivian Tam, to fix her face – with sharp needles, that is.

Finishing an exceptionally busy week at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne with a line up of glamorous race day meets, the mother of one indulged in the ancient Chinese medicine of acupuncture on Friday. Lying with her head back on a plush pillow, Rachael’s gorgeous glossy chestnut hair was pulled back into a chic top knot so that Vivian could get to work placing sharp needles into the correct meridian points around her face.

Wearing a comfortable khaki marl T-shirt, Rachael kept her arms by her side and enjoyed the feeling of the eight pins pricking her skin. Asking the expert in Chinese medicine to take a quick social snap, Rachael uploaded the above image writing:

‘Facial acupuncture with Vivian Tam tonight. A first for me, absolutely loved it.’ She added: ‘Increases blood circulation, tones and improves elasticity to name but a few benefits. Will be back! #chinesemedicine.’

Fans of the glamourous and down to earth Townsville native wrote ‘dunno about this, but if Finchy is all for It I’d give it a go!’

Another commented: ‘love that cosmetic acupuncture is gaining fans #naturalbeauty.’

Cosmetic acupuncture is said to be a safe, gentle and natural anti-aging practice to enhance beauty and wellbeing. Vivian Tam explains on her website that the treatment can ‘soften lines and wrinkles, lift sagging, increase firmness and tone in the face and bring to your face circulation for that bright, even and glowing skin that everyone dreams of having.’

Those who undergo the treatment normally have between ten to fifteen sessions that last up to 90 minutes.
Rachel has been very busy of late and as an ambassador for Spring Racing. The lithe model has been getting her frock on at all major race meets in Melbourne and has wowed fashion critics constantly with her chic track side ensembles by some of Australia’s most coveted designers.

Rachael’s adorable one-year-old daughter Violet and husband Michael Miziner, 30, will be pleased to have their beauty back on home turf, though, when she jets home to Sydney in coming days.

Rachael and Michael met on the set of Dancing With The Stars Australia when her now-husband was her coach and partner on the show. The pair later wed in January, 2013.
