Cosmetic Acupuncture

Would you like to have glowing skin?

Cosmetic Acupuncture is also known as Facial Rejuvenation therapy, it dates back to the emperor’s concubines in ancient China, utilising its safe practise to enhance both beauty and wellbeing.

Special needles, even finer than those used for the body are inserted into the skin of the face which causes a micro-trauma in targeted areas such as wrinkles. These needles stimulate the production of fibroblasts which encourage the formation of collagen and elastin which have become naturally depleted from ageing skin. Facial rejuvenation also encourages good circulation to the skin which helps it remain hydrated. Other benefits include restoring tone and lifting sagging skin which is achievable by activating certain muscles of the face, in addition to reducing scaring, increasing firmness and maintaining bright, even, glowing skin.

Treatment typically involves a course of 8-12 treatments with periodic followup maintenance. The results are cumulative and the peak of skin extracellular matrix activity is evident around 28 days following each treatment.

Vitamin C intake while receiving treatment is very important, vitamin C is vital to the synthesis of collagen.  Our ability to produce collagen reduces as we age, so a longer course of treatment would probably be required for older individuals and for smokers who usually have a limited ability to maintain adequate vitamin c levels.

Each treatment includes constitutional body acupuncture, the face alone will not be beautiful without attention to the body as a whole.  Due to the fact that we are treating the individual holistically private heath rebate are available for this course of treatment.

Packages of 6 or 10 treatments are available and are optional, they make treatment more affordable for those who have made the decision to commit to ongoing care.

Treatment plans vary from individual to individual and vary according to the requests of each patient, your practitioner will discuss the possibilities in depth before proceeding with treatment.
