Facial Enhancement Acupuncture is a natural anti-ageing treatment involving the insertion of fine hair-like needles into specific points on the face (and body). It has a long history. Records show that facial acupuncture was practiced on the Chinese Emperors’ concubines in Ancient China.

Based on the traditional principles of acupuncture, facial acupuncture is much more than a cosmetic procedure. It is about health and beauty. It’s a holistic revitalisation process which works at a deep level stimulating physiological healing processes to help the whole body look and feel better.

Today, increasing numbers of women are turning to facial acupuncture as a natural non-surgical alternative to facial injections, fillers and chemical beauty treatments. This is a wonderful option for a bride to help her look her very best on the day!

Benefits of Facial Acupuncture include increased blood and lymph circulation to the face, improved skin tone, moisture and texture, enhanced skin colour and balance, reduction in facial lines, furrows and wrinkle, eyes are brightened, eye bags may be reduced or eliminated, facial puffiness reduced or eliminated, muscles in the face and neck toned and tightened, double chins minimised, droopy eyelids, eyebrows, jowls and turkey necks can be lifted and toned, pore size regulated and visible stress lines diminished

Patients often report feeling wonderful relaxed and energised after facial acupuncture treatments and may notice improvements in other aspects of their health, such as their circulation, digestion, hormone balance, sleep or hair. Enhancing hormone balance may improve skin conditions such as dry skin and hormonal acne which may occur during the menopause.

The effects of facial acupuncture vary according to the prior condition and lifestyle of the patient. In some cases facial acupuncture may erase as many as five to fifteen years from the face. A study published in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture (1996) of 300 subjects treated with cosmetic facial acupuncture in China, showed marked effects in 90% of cases after just one course of treatment. The effects are cumulative with results progressing throughout the course of the treatment.
