What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?
Cosmetic Acupuncture, also known as Facial Rejuvenation, is a natural non-surgical alternative to western cosmetic surgery. Drawn from ancient texts of Chinese medicine, Cosmetic Acupuncture is a specialist holistic, natural and comprehensive program designed to restore, rejuvenate and relax.
Small, pain-free acupuncture needles are placed in a precise configuration just under the skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.
Benefits of Cosmetic Acupuncture
Promotes blood and lymph circulation – increased circulation dilates the peripheral blood vessels for better distribution of oxygen and nutrients as well as cellular regeneration.
Rehydrates the skin’s external layers through stimulation of the secretion of sweat and sebaceous glands, which encourages the regeneration of healthy skin cells.
Helps exfoliation – aids the proliferation of new skin cells, increasing nutrition to the skin’s surface, which improves skin’s quality and promotes a healthy glow.
Allows healthy “breathing” of the skin – increasing the skin’s ability to protect against infections and clogged pores.
Increases oxygen consumption of the skin’s external layer speeding up the release of carbon dioxide and nitrogen at the cellular level, helping to keep skin deeply cleaned.
Stimulates the production of elastin and four collagen proteins in the skin to reduce and soften wrinkles.
Reduces and relaxes nerve and muscle tension improving the integrity of the skin resulting in improved overall facial appearance.

Success of Cosmetic Acupuncture
A 1996 report in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with facial acupuncture, 90% had marked effect with one course of treatment. Some of these effects included: improved elasticity of the facial muscles and levelling of wrinkles, a ruddier complexion and overall rejuvenation not confined to the face.
Cosmetic Acupuncture has become the “sought after” anti-aging program amongst celebrities. Those reported to be fans of Cosmetic Acupuncture include Madonna, Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Claudia Schiffer and Prince William.
