Cosmetic acupuncture is often referred to as the ‘non-surgical facelift’ due to its dramatic results and proven effectiveness, and is becoming increasingly popular, especially among Hollywood celebrities. Cosmetic Acupuncture is an effective, safe, non-surgical treatment with no down time, used to naturally reduce the signs of aging.
Based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Cosmetic Acupuncture increases Qi (vital energy, pronounched “chee”), body fluid, and blood circulation; nourishes the skin; improves elasticity; and stimulates collagen production. Miniature, sterile, single-use, intra-dermal needles are inserted along wrinkle and frown lines to firm skin and promote a healthy, youthful complexion. Cosmetic Acupuncture has a very long history, being used in China for over 2000 years.

What is a Typical Course of Treatment?
Treatments are designed to promote relaxation while rejuvenating your skin, and include a consultation, facial cleansing, acupuncture treatment, rejuvenation treatment with oil essences, and facial massage. Treatments last between 1-1.5 hours, and are virtually painless with minimal side effects so you can return to normal activities immediately.
The recommended course of treatment is between 10-12 sessions. For best results, this should be done 1-3 times a week.
What Results Can I Expect?
Just like a surgical facelift, each individual will respond differently depending on their age and lifestyle. To help maintain longevity of results, treatments will focus on rectifying your unique underlying imbalance so that not only is your skin rejuvenated but your overall well-being is enhanced. Herbs, facial exercises, ear acupuncture, lifestyle counselling and essential botanicals may also be recommended.
Visible results will be noticeable after 6-7 sessions. Maintenance may be needed once every month to ensure your investment.
