Are you looking for an alternative to cosmetic surgery? Do you want to minimize the appearance of wrinkles? But don’t want botox or acid peels? Cosmetic Acupuncture (Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture) may be the answer you’re looking for. It can turn back time and take years off your appearance; not only is it safe, but your constitution is also re-established, which benefits overall health and vitality, and of course, yields that healthy glow we all want.
What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?
To many people’s surprise, Chinese Medicine can provide a safe, effective, natural and relatively painless solution to reducing the signs of aging. Cosmetic Acupuncture, also known as Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, is a non-surgical method for those who not only want to maintain beauty, radiance, and vitality in the face, but also improve their overall health and well being.
Acupuncture works by addressing the whole body and your individual reasons for showing the signs of aging, and in the process, Cosmetic acupuncture reinvigorates your circulation giving you that natural glow, evens out skin tone and discolorations, diminishes fine lines, balances out oily vs. dry areas, tightens puffy skin to yield a supple natural look, and most importantly treats you as a whole. Thus, you are treated for your core constitution (internally), which supports your overall health and beauty, and provides a natural anti-aging solution.
How Does Cosmetic Acupuncture Work?
It is said in Chinese Medicine that “anything in the interior will be reflected on the exterior” and, indeed, the skin reflects and reacts to your entire being—physical, emotional and spiritual. Furthermore, as we mature and experience the stresses of our daily lives, the blood, qi, and fluid circulation of the skin and underlying facial muscles slowly begin to decrease, resulting in a loss of support, elasticity, nourishment and moisture. Thus, Cosmetic Acupuncture is performed by precisely inserting hair-fine, sterile, disposable acupuncture needles into areas of the face and body to stimulate blood flow and collagen production to the face, while balancing the whole body. The overall result transforms your skin, yielding a smoother, more radiant appearance, while gently revealing its natural beauty.
Benefits of Cosmetic Acupuncture include:
- Increases circulation of blood and lymph to the face
- Moisturises the skin from inside
- Helps eliminate fine lines and soften deeper wrinkle
- Improves sagging skin and jowl
- Brightens the eyes and helps lift drooping eyelids.
- Reduces puffiness by boosting metabolism
- Improves muscle tone, elasticity and dermal contraction
- Increases collagen production and dispersal throughout the face, and tighten pores
- Improves facial colour and complexion, leaving glowing and radiant skin
- Reduces stress and aging that is evident on the face
- Relaxes facial tension that can cause frown lines, smile lines, and forehead wrinkles
- Improves hormonal balance to reduce acne
- Whole body revitalization
Can Anyone Get Cosmetic Acupuncture?

Cosmetic Acupuncture Program
Each Cosmetic Acupuncture Program is tailored exactly to your needs and presenting concerns, so no two programs are the same. but typically our program will include Facial Acupuncture, Acupuncture points on the body to balance overall health (hormones, energy, anxiety etc), and our unique Rejuvenating Facial Massage to lift your face muscles & release tension. Ear Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine may involve if needed.
During your first consultation, our practitioner will discuss your concerns about your face and skin. Your overall health is also assessed through questions and pulse and tongue diagnosis to find any internal health imbalances so we can treat any disharmony or general health concerns that may be contributing to the health of your facial skin and appearance.
The average treatment course includes a total of 10 consecutive sessions, once a week. Maintenance sessions are recommended every 4 to 8 weeks. By keeping this up, the results can last for years. Treatments usually take 60-75 minutes. The initial consultation and treatment may take up to 90 minutes.
Directly following your first cosmetic acupuncture treatment, our practitioner will recommend a treatment plan that will help you reach your skincare goals. Owing to each person’s uniqueness, results vary from person to person. While some people may notice positive changes in 1-2 treatments, some may not until the 4th or 5th treatment. (Please note: the effects of smoking and sun damage may be difficult to reverse.) Only getting 1-2 treatments may not be enough to begin the natural reversal of the signs of aging from the myriad of stresses we throw at our face day in and day out.
