Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a 100 % natural anti-ageing treatment and an alternative to invasive cosmetic surgery, chemical peels and Botox, which significantly reduces the signs of ageing and stress.
It triggers the body’s natural immune system, increasing local blood flow and a biochemical response to encourage collagen and oxygen production in your face, stimulating the body’s ability to regenerate itself by accelerating anti-inflammatory activity and by removing accumulative toxins from the skin.
Chinese doctors have practised it for years and celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Sean Connery, Madonna, Cher and Gwyneth Paltrow are reported to have undergone treatments.
How Does Cosmetic Acupuncture Work?
The treatment is tailored made to you and your skin; therefore it starts with a consultation for the taking of relevant details and medical history.
Acupuncture points are then selected on your body to help improve your internal metabolism and enable the cleansing of the skin from within, affecting hormones and the overall balance of the individual.
Points on the face stimulate the local tissues by increasing production and the dispersal of collagen and elastin, helping not only to eliminate fine lines and reduce larger wrinkles but also leaving you feeling rejuvenated, youthful and radiant.
The insertion of acupuncture needles also increases the blood circulation to the face, giving you a healthy glow and an even complexion.
The increased blood circulation and production of elastin also help to tone the facial muscles and lift the face.

Maintenance treatments are recommended every four to six weeks to achieve a natural, youthful and radiant looking effect but this is judged on an individual basis and personal preference.
Does it really work?
Yes it really does make a difference! Try it!
Research has shown that Acupuncture stimulates the flow of blood, Qi and nutrients to the face and encourages the production of elastin and collagen in the skin helping to tone the facial muscles and lift the face.
Studies published in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture in 1996 showed that of 300 people who received Facial Acupuncture, 90% demonstrated marked results after only their first treatment. The effects included the skin becoming more radiant with improved elasticity of facial muscles, levelling of wrinkles and an overall feeling of revitalisation.
Clients often report they feel more balanced, happier and healthier, have brighter eyes and sleep better.
