Facial / Cosmetic Acupuncture

What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?

  • Cosmetic acupuncture increases the blood circulation  in your skin. Your circulation tends to get a little sluggish as you age.  Cosmetic acupuncture allows collagen and elastin back to where you want it and allowing for more blood flow to have more firmer skin. Facial acupuncture allows for the muscle to relax as we present with tension on our face via lines.

  • No side effects here, other than the occasional bruise, which heals in less than a week.  You don’t have to worry about scarring, lumps, or botched procedures.

  • Your health benefits from the sessions as beautiful skin is linked to good health. 

  • It’s relaxing.  It may seem unlikely that an acupuncture treatment is relaxing, but the truth is that acupuncture increases the release of endorphins, those feel-good chemicals in your brain. 

  • Cosmetic acupuncture is chemical-free. 

  • Helps clear congested skin.

  • Helps have better skin tone, firmness, dryness, dullness, pimples, pigmentation, fine line and baggy eyes.

  • The energy meridians of Chinese medicine carry energy around the body from head to toe. This circulation of energy is vital to health and well-being. The meridians connect to the organs of the body, so if there is a health problem with any organ it becomes clearly visible in the face.

  • Treatment can be started at any age. In your late twenties/early thirties for example, treatment can prevent the signs of ageing. Later in life, it may take longer for the body to come back into harmony, but the benefits are immense, not just for your facial appearance, but for your overall health.

  • A series of 10-12 treatments is recommended, with one to two treatments per week if you are just noticing fine lines or minor problems, and have no major health concerns. If you have already developed significant wrinkles or other skin issues it is recommended that you complete 15 treatments as there will be significantly more internal imbalances in the body requiring more comprehensive treatment.
