How it works

Acupuncture is a safe and natural way to promote healthy, smooth, glowing skin. Acupuncture facilitates the activation of collagen and elastin producing cells under the skin surface to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and smooth out fine lines. Collagen contributes to skin firmness while elastin keeps the skin taut. Face needling can also help hydrate the skin by stimulating blood flow to the face, which helps to retain moisture for glowing skin.

What to expect

At your initial appointment you will have a consultation with your practitioner to discuss your cosmetic concerns.

Often cosmetic treatments begin with a light facial massage using a rose quartz Gua Sha tool to enhance blood flow and lymphatic drainage. Facial acupuncture involves insertion of very fine needles of the highest standard to either activate or relax motor units in the muscles of the face. Acupuncture may be given to other areas of the body that may assist in improving your general health and wellbeing.

Greatest results are usually expected after 8-12 weekly sessions however differences can usually be noticed after 6 consecutive weeks of treatment. Lines will begin to soften, and facial tissue will feel and look plumper and softer. However, each client is different and therefore length of treatment can vary depending on age, skin type, lifestyle and the state of your health. After this time, maintenance sessions every 6 weeks are recommended.
