|Cosmetic (Facial Rejuvenation) Acupuncture
Using the ancient wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to help restore a
revitalised youthfulness to the complexion from a deep energetic level, this unique
youth-promoting treatment also prevents the formation of wrinkles, minimises the
appearance of fine lines and improves the process by which the skin regulates its
quality and appearance.
Reportedly a youth-promoting favourite of many health-conscious A-list celebrities
including Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Madonna and Julianne Moore as featured in
Hello! Magazine (February 2009), 10 Years Younger (March 2009) and more
recently the Daily Mail (February 2011), Cosmetic Acupuncture represents a safe and
natural cosmetic method to promote youthfulness and enhance natural beauty.
How it works
Cosmetic Acupuncture helps delay and prevent the ageing process through promoting
blood and lymph circulation to the face bringing a youthful glow to the complexion while
also relaxing and toning facial muscles.
Thought to act through causing localised microtrauma events to specific tissues of the
face, Cosmetic Acupuncture stimulates collagen production to help to restructure and
tighten the skin to give a more youthful appearance.
Also by stimulating the body’s innate ability to regenerate itself, accelerating anti-
inflammatory activity and removing accumulative toxins from the skin and tissues of the
face, Cosmetic Acupuncture may help:
Since beauty comes from within, this is a revitalising treatment for both inside and out!
Through a truly holistic approach, giving cosmetic benefits and simultaneously
promoting an optimum health picture - this is so much more than just another cosmetic
Origins of Cosmetic Acupuncture
While only recently becoming popular here in the west, Cosmetic Acupuncture has an
impressive and rich history in the East, dating back to the early Western Zhou period of
(1121-770 BC) where treatments were developed to treat a variety of skin conditions
and to combat the ageing process.
While Cosmetic Acupuncture is a centuries-old practise which has developed from a
wealth of experience and wisdom, today's practitioner must still acknowledge the
influence of factors such as lifestyle and the natural environment and as such apply an
ever-evolving and uniquely-tailored approach to effective treatment.
What a Cosmetic Acupuncture session entails
A session involves a TCM consultation to discuss your goals of treatment, your medical
history, skin care regime and your lifestyle, followed by strategic insertion of our finest,
single-use needles to specific rejuvenating points on the head, face and neck.
The local facial acupunture points are supported with additional general body
acupuncture points located on the upper and lower limbs to help produce more general
overall health benefits to the whole body, including to:
Both the needles of the face and the body are retained in the skin for up to 25mins and
then immediately disposed of. Supplementation of acupressure and gentle Tui Na
massage to the face may also be incorporated into the treatment as and when
necessary to support treatment.
Optimum treatment advice
Each individual will respond differently to treatment depending on their unique age and
damage already caused to the skin, as well as overall health, diet and lifestyle picture.
Visible improvements are often readily apparent from the first couple of sessions and a
minimum course of 10-15 sessions is recommended to give optimum benefit. Sessions
can be delivered once or twice weekly. The effects of this type of treatment are
cumulative and each successive treatment builds upon previous treatment sessions.
Through a series of regular monthly maintenance sessions, the youth promoting and
anti-ageing cosmetic effects can last for years after the initial course has finished. An
additional benefit is that this simultaneously promotes a state of optimum health.
