Move over expensive, painful surgery that leaves your face looking distorted, or overpriced creams that impact your wallet more than your wrinkles.

If you want to revitalise your appearance, brighten your skin, improve skin tone and smooth out some lines in a way that is gentle, safe and non-invasive, then cosmetic acupuncture is for you. And if you have the appropriate level of cover, it can even be claimed on your private health insurance.

Working in the same way as regular acupuncture, super-fine needles are inserted at key points on your face to stimulate blood flow and hydration, unblock deep tissue stagnation that causes pigmentation, activate muscles to lift certain areas of the face, address hormonal issues and their impacts, and regenerate tissue fibers for a more youthful appearance.

Depending on the treatment, needles may also be inserted using a specialised technique called ‘threading’, which may sound like sewing but is actually painless and serves to stimulate production of collagen and elastin to both repair tissue and plump up lines and wrinkles.

Cosmetic acupuncture is a fast, effective way to address:

  • fine lines and wrinkles
  • sagging, drooping and loss of firmness
  • pigmentation
  • acne and acne scarring
  • dull, dry, lifeless complexions
  • sagging eyelids

While a cosmetic acupuncture treatment primarily focuses on your face, general acupuncture is also applied to the body to balance meridians and calm any prevalent conditions or agitation.

Specalist, super-fine, silicon-coated needles are used in sensitive facial areas. As with general acupuncture, you may feel nothing, a slight initial prick, or more sensation depending on the point. The sensation is initial and temporary.

While one treatment will deliver short-term results, a course of 10 treatments is strongly recommended to retrain facial muscles, super-charge production of collagen and elastin, and give your body time to undo and repair years and years of wear and tear, damage, and the natural effects of aging. The more sessions you can do, the longer-lasting the results.
