What Is Beauty Acupuncture?

Beauty Acupuncture (also referred to as ‘Facial Cosmetic Acupuncture’ or ‘Facial Rejuvenation’) is a natural, anti-ageing treatment which enhances beauty and improves facial and skin health. This ancient Chinese medical practice has been done for centuries in China and other Asian countries.

Beauty Acupuncture is not as invasive as injection procedures and it is a safe and natural treatment with very minimal side-effects.

How Does Beauty Acupuncture Work?

It involves the insertion of fine, sterile, single-use needles into the scalp, face and body. Once the needle is in the facial muscle it creates a healing response and allows your skin cells and tissues to regenerate and repair.

A series of treatment sessions can remodel and rejuvenate your skin by doing the following:

  • Increasing skin microcirculation
  • Increasing metabolic activity
  • Improving oil and water content
  • Boosting collagen production & collagen repair
  • Improving skin elasticity
  • Improving lymphatic drainage
  • Increasing facial muscle tone and tightening pores
  • Restoring and balancing the body’s homeostasis
