So what is cosmetic acupuncture?

Cosmetic or facial acupuncture is an ancient treatment used to help support skin health and reduce the effects of ageing. Unlike other anti-ageing treatment like Botox it is a more holistic approach and also addresses the underlying health conditions that may be impacting your skin.

By placing very fine acupuncture needles in specific points on the face and body we can help promote blood circulation for healthy, glowing skin! It is based on the same theories as acupuncture but it is a whole micro system and specialty on its own.
