What is cosmetic acupuncture?
Cosmetic acupuncture, also known as facial acupuncture rejuvenation, is aimed at improving the skin naturally.
Cosmetic acupuncture is far superior to conventional cosmetic treatments such as botox/collagen injections, fillers, micro-dermabrasion, photo rejuvenation, chemical peels and other harsh processes designed to ‘reverse the signs of ageing’.
Cosmetic acupuncture is natural, non-toxic and painless. And unlike other methods, it works from the inside out, giving you a healthy glow that other methods can’t match.
How does cosmetic acupuncture work?
Cosmetic acupuncture aims both to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, address other skin issues (listed below) and to deal with the underlying causes of these facial blemishes.
For example, one reason that lines and wrinkles appear is because collagen production decreases as we get older. Collagen is a vital part of the connective tissue that keeps the skin firm and supple.
Acupuncture facilitates collagen production by painlessly inserting very fine needles into specific points of the face, neck and head. The skin cells at these points are stimulated and the circulation of energy, or qi, improves, which in turn increases the production of collagen and elastin.
Acupuncture also improves local blood supply to the face which also reduces the appearance of fine lines and creates better muscle tone, tighter pores and improved facial colour. Cosmetic acupuncture also improves lymph and blood circulation in the body as a whole.
Every client at the Acupuncture and Beauty Centre is offered a personalised treatment for their specific skin concerns, and this includes overall health issues. A diagnostic regimen involving medical history-taking, pulse-taking, and examination of facial features among other things, reveals underlying issues to Chinese practitioners. When your underlying health is boosted, it’s reflected in the condition of your skin.

What’s involved in Cosmetic Acupuncture?
As with any acupuncture, the practitioner takes a full medical history so that treatments can be individualised to each patient.
Treatment begins with sound therapy (tuning forks) for relaxation and a herbal face mask is applied to the skin. Then acupuncture is given to the body and the face, depending on the client’s needs, requests and concerns.
Once the facial needles are removed, we use organic essential oils (lavender, rose, Vitamin E, rosehip, geranium) on the face along with photonlight therapy to even out the skin tone, tighten pores and improve complexion.
Next a 5-10minutes facial massage is performed to improve circulation before another customised mask is applied to the face. An anti-ageing moisturiser and light acupressure massage follows and finally, a facial spritz is applied and jade rollers are used to cool the skin.

From the first treatment, patients can see the wonderful glow of improved circulation and energy flow in their faces and can feel the relaxation in their bodies.
Patients experience best results when treatments are completed as part of a series, usually 10-12 treatments.
