Cosmetic Acupuncture

A 1996 report in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with acupuncture for facial rejuvenation, 90% has marked effects with one course of treatment. The effects included: more delicate skin, improvement of elasticity of facial muscles and tone, brighter complexion and overall rejuvenation.

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, or Cosmetic Acupuncture, is a safe and effective, non surgical treatment to reduce the signs of ageing. It can improve the circulation of  blood and nutrients to the face and stimulate the production of collagen which helps to eliminate lines and wrinkles, lift sagging skin and reduce bags under the eyes. It gives the skin better tone and a healthy glowing complexion.

Traditional Chinese Medicine can provide a safe, effective, natural and relatively painless solution to reducing the signs of aging. Cosmetic Acupuncture is a non-surgical method for those who not only want to maintain beauty, radiance, and vitality in the face, but also improve their overall health and well being.

The secrets of rejuvenation, longevity and beauty were highly sought after by members of the imperial royal court and the wealthy elite of ancient China. Today many celebrities use Cosmetic Acupuncture, to maintain their glowing and fresh appearances. One that holistically addresses the causes of aging skin, unlike methods such as acid peels, plastic surgery or Botox injections that only change the appearance without correcting the underlying imbalances.


Beauty from within

It is said in Chinese Medicine that "anything in the interior will be reflected on the exterior" and, indeed, the skin reflects and reacts to your entire being—physical, emotional and spiritual. Furthermore, as we mature and experience the stresses of our daily lives, the blood and energy circulation of the skin and underlying facial muscles slowly begins to decrease, resulting in a loss of support, elasticity, nourishment and moisture. Thus, Cosmetic Acupuncture is performed by precisely inserting hair-fine, sterile, disposable acupuncture needles into areas of the face and body to stimulate blood flow and collagen production to the face, while balancing the whole body. The overall result transforms your skin, yielding a smoother, more radiant appearance, while gently revealing its natural beauty.

Benefits of Cosmetic Acupuncture include

  • Erasing of fine lines with reduction of larger wrinkles on the face;
  • Reduction and elimination of puffiness and bags beneath the eyes and around the face;
  • Lifting of drooping eyelids, and reduction of sagging jowls or double chin;
  • Improved facial muscle tone, elasticity, and dermal contraction;
  • Increased circulation to the face resulting in improved facial color and radiance, while reducing the appearance of discolorations (age spots, acne, rosacea, etc.) and dryness;
  • Increased collagen production and dispersal throughout the face, and tightening of pores;
  • Reduction of stress and aging that is evident in the face;
  • Whole body revitalization.
  • Brightens the eyes

Since beauty stems from the inside out, cosmetic acupuncture, is an ideal therapy as it harmonises any internal organic imbalances that can make one more prone to the affects of ageing.  Thus the benefits are not merely cosmetic but are holistic too.
