COSMETIC ACUPUNCTURE

What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?

Cosmetic Acupuncture or Facial Rejuvenation is a gentle, safe and natural anti-aging practice to enhance beauty and wellbeing. 

The treatments are used to lift sagging, soften lines and wrinkles, increase tone and firmness in the face and bring about bright, even and glowing skin of everyone's dreams by boosting blood circulation. It also addresses the health of your whole body, to assist elimination of other skin issues including Acne.

​Being gentle, safe and natural, there is so much that Facial Acupuncture can treat. 

​Cosmetic Acupuncture is a technique which has been around for around 5,000 years, which proves just how effective it is for beauty and anti-aging, and how much people love it. Since then, the skills have been refined and developed into a practice we can confidently use in modern Australia.

How does it work?

Very fine needles designed specifically for the face are inserted using different techniques on different areas of the face. Body acupuncture is also used to bring health to the skin from within. 

Cosmetic Acupuncture itself is a 3-step system to bring a more youthful appearance by:

  1. Muscle layer: target motor points in weakened and drooping muscles to lift, tighten and tone.

  2. Soft tissue and skin: stimulate collagen and elastin production to firm the skin and soften wrinkles

  3. Blood circulation and general health: a boost in blood and lymphatic circulation means healthier skin cells - healthy skin cells means more moisture - moisture means supple skin and a youthful glow radiating from the inside out.

Results Timeline

The results of Cosmetic Acupuncture depend on your body's ability to respond to stimulation provided by the facial needles and treatment. It is generally accepted that more optimal results are achieved the healthier you are, because your body's response system is also at its best.

Week 1 - 2

1 - 2

Hydrated, softened, glowing skin. These differences are all noticeable within the first two weeks of Cosmetic Acupuncture. Your skin becomes a lot softer and easier to manage. The skin is hydrated and dryness is significantly diminished due to the increased blood flow and oxygenation provided to the cells on the face, and higher nutrient transfer. The activation of motor points during the treatment allows the muscles to relax and tension in the jawline and brows soften. Overall the complexion is radiant and there is increased colour and life in the face.

Week 3 - 4

3 - 4

Tightening and lifting sensation. The facial muscles feel more toned and lifted, fine lines are also dissipating. Make-up looks better than ever and more long-lasting due to continuous increase in hydration and blood flow of the skin. Large pores are reduced, and the skin feels more refined. 

Week 5 - 7

5 - 7

Stimulation of collagen. Between weeks 5 - 7 of the treatments, a boost in collagen production will become evident. In targeted areas where there was loss of volume, there will be a palpable and visible plumping. The skin around the cheeks and mouth feel tighter and lines are starting to soften. The muscles in the face will feel lifted, and eyes will feel more open and brighter.

Week 8 - 12

8 - 12

Let the best changes unfold. At the final weeks of your Cosmetic Acupuncture treatment block, you can expect the best overall changes. The complexion is even, redness is diminished, and pores are smaller. The face continues to feel denser and more firm, lifting the marionette lines and opening up the nasolabial folds. Lines and wrinkles have softened and skin looks plump, hydrated and taut. 

Maintenance 

Every

4 - 8 weeks

Facial Acupuncture treatments work cumulatively, meaning the benefits continue to add to each other and enhance results each time.  Maintenance sessions are recommended every 4 - 8 weeks depending on your skin type and age, and another treatment block recommended every 2 - 5 years. The results achieved, when maintained, can last for years.
