Cosmetic Acupuncture is a non-invasive, non-toxic and cost-effective alternative therapy to naturally revitalize your youthful beauty and overall wellbeing.

Cosmetic acupuncture is the gentle insertion of tiny needles over your problem areas to stimulate natural collagen production, as well as over your entire body to assist with nourishing your skin from the inside out. Cosmetic acupuncture will not only have you looking more vibrant and younger, it will have you feeling wonderful as well.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been practiced for thousands of years to combat skin conditions and signs of ageing. Utilising the core principle philosophy that health and beauty is a result of correct balance within the body, TCM believes if the body is in alignment, healthy and strong, then beauty radiates from the face. At Spring Acupuncture, we have a holistic approach to treating each and every individual with a personalized plan to promote natural beauty. TCM views the face as a map of inner health, and by taking note of the disharmony on the face, such as wrinkles, acne, sagging, lusterless or discoloration of the skin, our practitioners can form a TCM diagnosis of your inner health.

Stress, digestive issues, hormonal imbalances and insomnia can all cause health disharmonies that lead to premature aging. Cosmetic acupuncture uses a combination of facial and body acupuncture, internal and external herbs, massage, dietary and exercise advice to combat and regulate the bodies response to these disharmonies. This approach of treating the individual as a whole leads to a more satisfying, long-lasting and noticeable result, that is both natural and safe.

How does cosmetic acupuncture work?

Cosmetic Acupuncture enhances fresh collagen and elastin production under the skin by improving blood circulation to nourish the facial tissues, whilst aiding in the removal of toxins and dead skin cells. The gentle insertion of acupuncture needles creates micro tears within the deeper skin layers. The immune system responds to these tears by creating new collagen and elastin fibres that help the skin to form strong bonds between cells resulting in firmer, vibrant and clear skin. We have 43 muscles in our face, acupuncture and facial massage relaxes these muscles, producing highly effective results with facial rejuvenation.

The research shows cosmetic acupuncture:

  • Reduces acne and acne scaring¹
  • Smooths out skin tone and texture¹
  • Improves facial muscles tone, lifting and firming areas of the face and neck¹
  • Improves elasticity to tighten sagging jowls²
  • Eliminates and decreases the length and depth of wrinkles, frown lines and crow’s feet¹
  • Reduces dark circles under eyes¹
  • Tightens pores¹
  • Decreases sagging eye lids¹
  • Reduces facial and eye oedema¹
  • Improves hormonal, menopause or post-menopause skin related issues³
  • Decreases hyper pigmentation (ie. rosacea, melasma, redness and age spots)³

What is the recommended cosmetic acupuncture therapy regime?

Suzzanne our cosmetic acupuncture specialist will diagnose and implement the best treatment plan for each individual patient as per their skin and internal health requirements. However, the research suggests that to obtain optimal results with cosmetic acupuncture the following treatment plan options are recommended:

  • 1 maintenance treatment every 2-4 week

The Intensive Rejuvenation Plan:

Over a 4-week treatment period with maintenance:

    Coming soon to Spring Acupuncture: Infra-red Light Therapy

    Infrared light therapy used in conjunction with your cosmetic acupuncture rejuvenation plan will enhance the effects and speed up your results. Studies have shown that repeated exposure to red and infra-red wavelengths stimulates the body’s cellular photoreceptors and the natural production of collagen. This increases collagen production, filling in fine lines and wrinkles in the skin, producing the desired anti-aging effects.

Are there any side effects of cosmetic acupuncture?

Cosmetic Acupuncture has minimal side effects and like most forms of therapy, the results will vary from individual to individual. There is little downtime and after a session your skin may have some redness and a warm sensation that will disappear in a few hours. It is important to understand that cosmetic acupuncture is not a cure, and will never completely eliminate all signs of aging, but when you start glowing from the inside out everybody will be asking what you’ve been using to look this good.

Who should have cosmetic acupuncture?

Just about anyone who wants to look younger and have healthy glowing skin can undergo cosmetic acupuncture therapy. Cosmetic acupuncture is an ideal natural and safe therapy for getting you event ready and is highly recommended for:

  • brides preparing for their big day (the added stress reducing benefits of acupuncture is also a must for all brides)
  • getting mother-of-the-bride/groom photo ready
  • big birthday celebration skin perfection
  • reunion party rejuvenation
  • getting you glowing for that work Christmas party
  • clear and smooth skin for that upcoming formal
  • reducing back acne for when we need to show a bit of skin
  • those just wanting to look their best every day without the use of toxic chemicals and invasive procedures.

Who shouldn’t have cosmetic acupuncture?

As with every therapy there is always a caution. With cosmetic acupuncture it is generally not advisable to undergo treatment if you have any of the following:

  • Contagious skin issues
  • Haemophiliac
  • Straight after other facial rejuvenation therapies such as Botox, surgery, micro-dermabrasion or laser treatments.
