Cosmetic acupuncture is the application of fine filament needles inserted into the skin of the face and neck for a natural anti-ageing treatment that aims to rejuvenate overall elasticity & complexion.​​

The needles work to open up micro-channels where areas of sub-dermal scaffold (the tissue that supports the epidermis) has weakened and collapsed. This action induces the body’s natural healing mechanism which encourages the production of collagen and elastin. This rebuilds the tissue scaffold by adding to the collagen levels that already exists and effectively “pack” the epidermis out reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Improvement of circulation is part of this process also enhancing skin tone and texture.

What to expect during a treatment:

A cosmetic treatment is a combination of fine needles that are placed in the body as well as the face. The treatment is bespoke based on individual needs for overall wellbeing and treatment wrinkles and fine lines. The treatments also include a face mask, LED light therapy, and a facial massage.

A course of 6 to 8 treatments is recommended, followed by occasional maintenance.
