Cosmetic Acupuncture

It is widely held that the Chinese Empress and the Emperor’s concubines, as far back as the Song Dynasty (960-1279AD) received acupuncture to aid rejuvenation and specifically promote anti-ageing.
(Soulie De Morant, G., 1878-1955, p.12)

According to studies published in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture in 1996, of 300 people who received Facial Acupuncture, 90% showed marked results already after their first treatment.

Cosmetic Acupuncture or Facial Enhancement Acupuncture (FAE) is a non-surgical, non-chemical treatment that works with your natural beauty, to stimulate local blood circulation and collagen production. It is a possible alternative to botox or fillers.

While it is cannot reshape one’s nose or cheekbones like cosmetic surgery, it is a viable alternative for rejuvenation, costs much less and doesn’t have the risks, side effects and recovery period of surgery.

It works on points and muscles of the face in order to improve elasticity of your skin and can benefit complexion, eyes, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, pores and give you a general ‘face lift’.

The effects of this treatment run much deeper than simply improving appearance. Cosmetic Acupuncture is a holistic treatment and can enhance your health and wellbeing. During your facial treatment your therapist will also needle constitutional points on your legs, arms and body. These will help to balance and harmonise you from the inside.

Many find it surprisingly relaxing, not last because it ends  with a nice facial massage. Our acupuncturist is also a practitioner of facial rejuvenation massage.

Each person responds differently, depending on lifestyle factors. Up to ten sessions may be needed, but a minimum of three is recommended to start noticing benefits, e.g. a more vibrant and rejuvenated face. Following the initial course of treatments, maintenance sessions can help prolong the results. Treatment packages are available and those who have done a course of treatment with us benefit from a special maintenance deal.
