Facial Rejuvenation

Revitalise and rejuvenate your skin

Facial rejuvenation (also known as cosmetic acupuncture or facial acupuncture) is a natural, safe and effective way to bring radiance back to your skin and improve your health.

Facial rejuvenation treatments utilise very fine acupuncture needles to bring increased circulation to the skin, thus enhancing natural collagen production. A facial rejuvenation treatment includes the needling of acupuncture points on the body to treat your overall health and assist with nourishing your skin, promoting and enhancing general wellbeing. Acupuncture points of the face are needled to specifically target your skin concerns. Treatments are individually tailored to each person.

This treatment is relaxing and rejuvenating and usually has no down time. Suitable for women and men.

What happens during a treatment?

During your first treatment, your condition will be assessed and a treatment plan will be formulated. Each treatment will usually begin and end with a light massage, followed by needling on the face and body. Arnica creams and light facial oils may also be used.
