What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?

Cosmetic acupuncture is a totally natural, non-surgical facial that more people are turning to as a viable and highly acclaimed alternative to invasive injections, fillers and chemical treatments. It involves placing tiny, painless acupuncture needles into various points on the face.

 

How does Cosmetic Acupuncture work?

  • Increased blood circulation encourages oxygenation, detox and lymph drainage.
  • Improves skin tone and texture.
  • Stimulates collagen to plump up the skin.
  • Tightens muscles in the face and neck.
  • Increases cell regeneration filling out and smoothing lines and wrinkles.
  • Regulates and balances hormones – in acne-type, stress-related and menopausal skin.

Cosmetic acupuncture is based on traditional acupuncture so improved sleep, energy and digestion are common positive effects. You will look and feel better.

 

Age Defence Facial
75 mins | $150

A miracle anti-ageing treatment. Cosmetic acupuncture works wonders at plumping vertical lines and improving the tone and elasticity of the skin. It is the truest form of anti-aging medicine because it works internally to optimize your health while simultaneously enhancing the appearance of your skin. This treatment is covered by most extended health plans if you have acupuncture coverage.

The Age Defence Facial is a highly specialised, very effective facial.  Each facial is tailored to the client’s specific concerns.

  • Very fine needles stimulate acupuncture points on the face, ears and body.
  • Intradermal needles are used in fine lines and wrinkles – for example on the forehead, between the eyebrows, the nasal-labial lines (nose to corner of mouth lines), crows feet (lines around the eyes).
  • Needles are left in place for 15 minutes then removed.  Afterwards the eye area is gently treated with some cupping therapy to stimulate the lymphatic system and de-puff the eye area.
