Cosmetic Acupuncture has been widely used in China for many years to combat the signs of ageing. Cosmetic Acupuncture hydrates, tones up and boosts the skin’s supply of nutrients and oxygen, thus decreasing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and blemishes. The overall result gives you a more youthful appearance.
The face has a high number of Acupuncture points. This means that specific areas of the face can be targeted which will in turn increase the flow of blood and energy through the skin in that area, improving skin’s appearance.
As we mature, the quantity of Qi (energy) and blood in the skin and underlying facial muscles slowly begin to decrease, causing a loss of nourishment support and moisture.
Cosmetic Acupuncture is an excellent alternative and far less costly than cosmetic surgery and it is SAFE. There are none of the side effects of face lift surgery i.e. laser, and injections like numbness, scarring, possible atrophy, and lengthy recovery time. It does not have bad side-effects or risk of disfigurement (temporary very slight bruising can occasionally occur). Cosmetic Acupuncture is a holistic alternative to plastic surgery, botox injections, collagen injections and laser/chemical peels.
How does Cosmetic Acupuncture work?
As you age, facial muscles gradually lose their tone. Loss of tone causing the sagging, tired look we all associate with aging. Cosmetic Acupuncture involves the use of specialised Acupuncture techniques which target areas of the face nourishing facial muscles, the skin surface, wrinkles and sagging skin. A course of treatment increases blood circulation to the face, promoting collagen production for better muscle tone and elasticity. Cellular repair is accelerated muscles are toned returning the face to a healthier, revitalised youthful appearance.
What is a course of treatment?

This treatment will need to be done of a weekly basis to complete the course of treatment and get the best possible results. After a course has been completed, a top up is recommended every several months.
