Cosmetic Acupuncture

This is a specialist field of acupuncture that focuses specifically on the cosmetic aspects of the person offering a non-surgical method of reducing the signs of the ageing process with the added benefit of improving general health and well being at the same time.

Facial points are stimulated using the finest, sterilised, disposable needles.  Supportive needles are also used on the lower leg and hands to balance your constitution.

Cosmetic Acupuncture treats the whole person, providing rejuvenation of general health, as well as  treating the signs of ageing. Research has shown that acupuncture stimulates the flow of blood and energy through the skin in the face, thereby hydrating, boosting the skin’s supply of nutrients and oxygen and reducing the signs of ageing.  A 1996 report published in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with facial acupuncture, 90% had marked effects with one course of treatment.

While not a replacement for surgery, cosmetic acupuncture is an excellent alternative which is far less costly and has no side effects or risk of disfigurement (although it should be noted that some small bruising may occur).  While cosmetic acupuncture will not reshape a nose or chin, it is a more subtle rejuvination while also improving overall health. Cosmetic acupuncture can:

  • Improve muscle tone
  • Help reduce and/or eliminate bags under the eyes
  • Decrease the tendency towards sagging and jowls

  • Improve hormonal balance, therefore even those with ‘hormonal acne’ can benefit
  • Moisturise the skin by increasing local circulation of blood and lymph to the face
  • Improve facial colour by increasing peripheral circulation
  • Reduce double chin
  • Tighten the pores
  • Brighten the eyes
  • Helps to lift drooping eyelids
  • Reduce stress evident in the face
  • Promote overall health and wellbeing
  • Slow the ageing process from within
