Relax & Rejuvenate

Facial acupuncture uses needles to stimulate the skin and underlying muscles of the face healing to improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Stimulation by acupuncture needles helps to increase collagen production and improve blood circulation which in turn results in improved skin elasticity, reduced wrinkles, and general brightening of the complexion.

Acupuncture for Ageing Concerns

Trying cosmetic acupuncture can help to stimulate the fibroblast cells that lie deep within the dermis layer of the skin. Much like microneedling, but the tiny needles can go even deeper in cosmetic acupuncture. Overall this can promote the production of new collagen and elastin – the key building blocks of the skin that naturally deplete with age. .

Crow’s feet: By remodelling the skin – encouraging that collagen and elastin production – cosmetic acupuncture can create firmer and more resilient skin around the eyes. It also improves microcirculation that helps with puffiness and discolouration issues.

Benefits of Cosmetic Acupuncture

A number of studies have evaluated the effectiveness of cosmetic acupuncture using a range of standardized measurement tools including the Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale, ultrasonography and use of silicon microrelief impressions. In two studies, benefits were noted after one or two treatments in 90% of participants. Findings confirm the aesthetic benefits of cosmetic acupuncture, including:

  • Improved skin texture + elasticity
  • Reduction of skin wrinkles + “double chin”
  • Reduction of “drooping” of eyelids + Minimization of pore size
  • Reduction of acne +Increased “brightness” of eyes

Our Approach to Cosmetic Acupuncture

Although benefit may be noted in as few as one or two treatments; effects are typically noticed after five treatments.  5-10 treatments, once weekly, for one-hour each are recommended to attain optimal results.

The effectiveness of cosmetic acupuncture treatments can be optimized by including in your regimen use of Gua Sha, exercises for facial muscles, facial massage therapy treatments or use of nutritional supplements or botanical (herbal) medicines which will be explained at your appointments.
