Cosmetic Acupuncture isn’t just about reducing wrinkles, (although welcomed), our wonderful and skilled Acupuncturists at Chermside and Cannon Hill will balance your body’s constitution to support your skin type and enable the body to heal itself.
Cosmetic Acupuncture helps to relax and tone facial muscles and increases collagen by stimulating the circulation to your face.
Cosmetic Acupuncture can help with:
- Firming the skin to reduce sagging
- Reduce and soften wrinkles
- Brighten complexion
- Reduce eye puffiness
- Bell’s Palsy/Facial Paralysis
- Acne and scarring
Depending on your needs a series of 8-10 treatments are recommended with two appointments per week for the first 2-3 weeks, then one appointment weekly. Once that schedule is completed we recommend follow- up treatments every 2-3 months help to maintain the treatment effect.
What to expect during treatment.
Your first consultation includes an in depth interview to establish your goals, constitution and skin type. Local anaesthetic cream (optional) is applied to targeted face/neck areas then constitutional points on the body are treated for 20 minutes while this takes effect. Body needles are removed and gua-sha and facial needles are inserted. Needles are turned every 10 minutes to tighten and lift muscle fibres and retained for 30 minutes. Additional techniques may be used depending on your needs and target areas. Diet and lifestyle recommendations may also be suggested to support your treatment effect.
Your skin is the biggest organ in the body and it often reflects your internal health and lifestyle. Cosmetic Acupuncture is great way to improve how you look and feel.
