FACIAL REJUVENATION ACUPUNCTURE
Our skin defines us. Visible signs of internal imbalances are often revealed on our facial skin, caused either by emotional, dietary or lifestyle factors. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, also sometimes called Cosmetic Acupuncture, helps to combat these signs. It is a full face, body, mind and soul treatment that realigns the emotional and energy channels from the feet, to the crown of the head. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a deeply relaxing and soothing treatment. It is designed to work both on the face and body, resulting in an energy boosting and calming effect, whilst improving the outlook of your skin.

Does Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture work?
The answer is 'YES'. Realistic outcomes will see your skin tone improve. Fine wrinkles will be reduced and deeper facial lines, softened. Your skin will feel more moisturised and hydrated, with a gradual increase in overall tone and firmness, leaving you feeling and looking more confident, glowing and youthful.
Does Facial Acupuncture hurt?
No it does not hurt. We use very fine needles and often you will not feel anything when the needles are inserted into your skin. However, it is not unusual to feel a miniscule and fast prick when the needles are inserted. The 'prickly' feeling will disappear instantly and the rest of the treatment is practically painless.
How long till I see some results?
Often times after the first treatment, you will find your skin feeling softer, hydrated and moisturised. The outcome depends on your body's ability to respond to the treatment provided. Positives changes in lifestyles, diet and emotional stress will see your facial skin respond faster to the treatments. The healthier your are, the better and faster the outcome will be.
How many sessions of treatments will I need?
The number of treatments varies from individual to individual. Generally, 8-10 weekly treatments will show considerable and noticeable results. A minimum of 8 weekly treatments is required in order for your facial skin to respond to the treatment. Once the treatment sessions are completed, results can last for many years, subjected to lifestyle, diet and emotional factors. Maintenance sessions are recommended for every 8 to 12 weeks.
Are there any side effects?
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a safe and calming treatment. We use sterile disposable needles, and all facial products used are from Perfect Potion which are, natural and plant based products from Australia.
Are there any standard protocol prior to a Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture treatment?
No, there are no important protocol that you need to adhere to prior to your treatment. However, we do recommend that you come in with a clean face, but it is not necessary, as we will thoroughly cleanse and remove any traces of grime or make-up before the treatment begins. We also recommend that you wear comfortable clothing to relax in, during your session.
Is Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture treatment appropriate for everyone?
It is advisable that you avoid this treatment if you:

Can I have Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture if I have had Botox?
Clients who have had cosmetic surgery such as face lifts, Botox or cosmetic fillers should avoid this treatment until the effects have worn off (at least 3 months). This is because the treatment may counteract with the effects of Botox. Clients who have had plastic surgery or facial reconstruction should allow wounds to heal properly first, and to allow down time before commencing this treatment.
Can Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture help with Acne or Rosacea?
We would recommend clients with chronic skin problems to be treated under Dermatology to clear the prevailing skin condition with herbal medicine and acupuncture prior to Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture. If acne presentation is minimal (a few pimples around the face) similarly, if rosacea presentation is minimal, a Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture would be suitable. A weekly treatment will help regulate your hormones, and to keep further acne break outs and rosacea at bay. Scarring due to severe acne condition is a difficult condition to treat. However, over time with regular Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture treatments will soften the appearance of the scars.
