“a viable alternative to cosmetic surgery, the effects of which run much deeper than simply improving appearances”.

The benefits of Cosmetic Acupuncture
Acupuncture facelifts have even been featured in the mainstream media which studies
show that among 300 cases treated with facial acupuncture, 90% had marked beneficial
results with only one course of treatment.

WHAT IS COSMETIC ACUPUNCTURE/FACIAL REJUVENATION?
Cosmetic Acupuncture is a non-surgical, holistic approach to facial rejuvenation. It goes back thousands of years and can enhance not only your physical appearance but also your overall health.
Acupuncture is far less expensive, more natural, non-invasive and safer than plastic surgery or botox injections and has no side effects, toxicity, inflammation, or recovery time.
WHAT CAN COSMETIC ACUPUNCTURE TREAT?
Cosmetic Acupuncture works on improving vitality and energy and in turn, slowing down the aging process. It is suitable for those with deep wrinkles, fine lines, bags under the eyes, sagging, puffiness, drooping eyelids, double chin, large pores, dry skin or acne.
WHAT HAPPENS IN A TREATMENT?
As with all acupuncture treatments, your first visit is longer than your follow-up visits as it includes a question sheet and a tongue and pulse diagnosis. These are analyzed to find a treatment strategy that works best for you. Next specific acupuncture points are chosen on the face and body to tackle the underlying problem and fine needles are inserted. After 20-30 minutes the needles are removed and a Chinese herbal mask packed with natural revitalisers is placed on the face to finish the treatment.
WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO SEE RESULTS?
Although results can be seen from as early as the very first treatment, effects are most noticeable and lasting from the sixth session. For the Best results a course of 10-12 treatments are required. Each person responds differently, depending on his or her condition, constitution and lifestyle.
It is recommended to supplement the Cosmetic Acupuncture with a good skincare regime and a healthy diet.
