Cosmetic acupuncture is a non-invasive treatment that involves using acupuncture to improve skin and fight the ageing process. Proponents claim that cosmetic acupuncture can help reduce wrinkles, diminish fine lines, remove age spots, and lift droopy eyelids.
Acupuncture stimulates the natural production of collagen. The insertion of the tiny needles creates a type of "micro trauma" which initiates a healing response and collagen production.
Through a micro-wound healing response, it addresses multiple factors of ageing – from smoothing lines, to enhancing the firmness and volume of skin.
Acupuncture can increase oxygenation levels though microcirculation which can aid detoxification and help prevent facial puffiness.
Unlike Botox, cosmetic acupuncture can influence the health of the skin, working on more than the superficial signs of premature ageing.
Crystal Gua Sha massage is used alongside acupuncture to relax the facial muscles and increase the flow of blood to the skin which brings red blood cells, white blood cells & stimulates the production of collagen in order to rebuild the skin.

HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TREATMENT?
OPTION 1: WEEKLY
If you have a particular area of your appearance that you want to work on, weekly treatments are recommended for 6-10 treatments.
OPTION 2: OCCASIONAL TREAT
You may wish to give yourself an occasional treat every month or couple of months for maintenance or before a big event.
Facial Rejuvenation Process
Fine needles are inserted on the face and possibly hands and feet for grounding. Relax whilst they do their work with the option of listening to some anti-ageing hypnosis at the same time.
2. TIGHTEN & LIFT
A warming roller massages the face whilst the heat shrinks the collagen to tighten and lift. The sensation is very enjoyable and nurturing.
We use jade gua sha tools or crystal rollers to massage the skin. This increases the micro-circulation, boost the complexion and flushes the lymphatics in the face.
3. LYMPHATIC FLUSH
