Is Cosmetic Acupuncture the New Botox?

While Facial fillers and Botox are very common recently to treat the superficial signs of ageing, Cosmetic Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years, although traditionally reserved for high society in elite Asian dynasties. 

Today, it is the most popular and accessible natural alternative to plastic surgery and synthetic injections.  

Cosmetic Acupuncture optimizes the surface appearance and holistic health of the skin.

Not only does it soften, plump and reduce specific areas of concerns, such as the 

  • 11 lines between the eyebrows
  • marionette lines of the nasolabial folds
  • smokers mouth
  • crows feet
  • saggy jowls
  • dark under eye circles/ puffiness

It also unleashes an overall vibrant skin tone, smooth texture, and radiant glow to the entire face.

Often people who do botox and filler will still be unsatisfied with issues of 

  • cystic acne
  • large pores
  • rosacea
  • eczema/ psoriasis
  • acne/ pox scars
  • dry/ inflamed skin
  • facial muscle tension/ tight jaw

All of which cosmetic acupuncture can effectively treat, both locally on the face, as well as systemically via proper digestion, restful sleep, balanced hormones, regulated stress and anxiety.  

The ‘magic’ of acupuncture is rooted in our body’s own mechanism to repair and heal when stimulated to do so. 

Cosmetic acupuncture needles are incredibly fine in diameter and shallow in depth but are very powerful at increasing circulation and oxygen supply to the skin, flushing out congestion and bacteria, while also encouraging production of newer, stronger collagen and elastin fibres.

The result is improved firmness, elasticity, reduced fine lines and a brighter, clearer complexion from the inside out.

Cosmetic Acupuncture and Facial Rejuvenation techniques such as micro-needling, cupping, gua sha, and lymphatic massage can be started at any age, whether addressing skin changes due to puberty and the onset of metabolic changes, or the laxity and dullness of mature skin through midlife and beyond.

Many patients notice a shift after just one treatment, but for maximum benefit, a series of semi regular treatments is recommended as a way to teach the skin where to build and repair on its own.

Weekly or twice a month for the first 6 sessions is ideal, depending on individual starting points and end goals.   Thereafter, a maintenance visit every few months is perfect for keeping things stable both internally and externally.

Cosmetic Acupuncture does not require any downtime, although occasionally a small bruise may occur at the puncture site, which usually fades within a day or so.  No special preparation is needed either, just comfortable clothes and a readiness to relax and rejuvenate

So check out Cosmetic Acupuncture and feel the glow shine bright from within!
