What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?

Cosmetic Acupuncture or Facial Rejuvenation as it is also known is the latest anti-ageing treatment of choice for celebrities. It is a rejuvenation and revitalization process designed to help the whole body look and feels younger. Breaking the skin using fine needles cause a chemical reaction by using acupuncture points positioned on the meridian channels of the face and body to restore a harmonious balance and increase the natural production of collagen.

Cosmetic Acupuncture is a great choice for ageing baby boomers that want to give their skin a little boost, but don’t want to inject Botox, fillers, or go the surgical route. It also works well for younger women, and men, who want their skin to look its best without chemical peeling.

About the treatment

The initial treatment takes 90 minutes. A full consultation and skin analysis are performed and we will discuss what your concerns are and what are you hoping to achieve from the treatment. Once the treatment has been determined acupuncture needles will be applied which may include other parts of the body like the hands, tummy, feet and legs, so it is best to wear loose-fitting clothes. You will be covered by a blanket to keep you warm and comfortable.

Following the removal of the needles, massage to the affected areas will be performed, often with a herbal cream suitable for your constitution. This massage can be done with either the fingers/hands or with a gua sha. Herbal masks can be applied if necessary but these are an optional extra and aren’t required with all treatments. Herbal treatments may be necessary to complement and improve the results. If so this may in tablet or powder form to be taken orally, or using a prepared cream to apply directly to the skin.
