Cosmetic Acupuncture

Cosmetic Acupuncture also known as facial rejuvenation acupuncture is when needles are used on your face to create “micro trauma”. This encourages blood flow to the area, promoting qi and Blood circulation. In Chinese medicine many conditions are due to incorrect flow of qi (pronounced chee). With cosmetic acupuncture we combine constitutional treatment specific to you and facial acupuncture to stimulate your body’s innate healing capacity. When needles are inserted locally, your body’s defends sees these as foreign bodies causing an injury and triggers the wound-healing cascade. Fibroblasts are stimulated which are essential in tissue repairs. These can help produce collagen and elastin which are the building blocks of skin.  We also offer cosmetic packages.

Cosmetic acupuncture is used to soften lines and wrinkles, lift sagging and boosts firmness to promote a brighter, glowing and more even skin.

Some benefits of Cosmetic Acupuncture include: 

  • skin hydration by increasing circulation of blood and lymph to the skin

  • improves firmness, elasticity and muscle tone of the face

  • helps lifts sagging and drooping skin through needling motor points on the face and neck

  • fills out sunken areas

  • helps eliminate fine lines and soften deep wrinkles

  • improves skin colour and brightens dullness, leaving a glowing and radiant skin

  • brightens the eyes and helps drooping eyelids
