What is Facial Acupuncture?

Facial Acupuncture (cosmetische acupunctuur) is a non-surgical skin revitalising and natural anti-ageing treatment. It focuses on traditional facial acupuncture points which when needled help the facial muscles to relax and improves the elasticity of the skin. Fine disposable facial acupuncture needles are inserted into the facial acupuncture points and intra-dermal needles into fine lines and wrinkles. This natural treatment leaves the skin looking radiant and youthful.

How can Facial Acupuncture help your skin?

  • Improves skin tone and texture

  • Stimulates collagen production which plumps the skin

  • Increases cell regeneration which fills and smooths fine lines and wrinkles

  • Increases blood circulation which encourages oxygenation, detox and lymph drainage

  • Tightens muscles in the face and neck

  • Improved sleep, energy and digestion

Clients often report feeling more relaxed, sleep better, feel brighter and happier after acupuncture treatment.

Can it be uncomfortable?

The needles used are very fine and are only inserted a few millimetres, you may however feel some pressure as the needle is inserted but most people find the process very relaxing. 

How long does it take to see results?

Its important not to expect too much from just one session, this is a natural treatment not a surgery or injectable, results vary from client to client and it also depends on the health of your skin prior to starting your Facial Acupuncture sessions. A course of 10 treatments is often advised, which can be booked as a package or individual sessions.
