Facial (cosmetic) acupuncture is a non-surgical option to enhance the appearance of the face, reduce and reverse the signs of aging and rejuvenate the whole body to make you look and feel younger. Many people are choosing this approach in favour of more aggressive procedures like cosmetic surgery in order to avoid the shocking, drastic, and artificial changes such methods often induce.
Over a series of treatments, the patient may see a gradual reduction in facial wrinkles, scarring, and discolouration and an overall enhancement in the appearance of the face.
Facial (cosmetic) acupuncture uses the principles of Chinese Medicine and involves the insertion of very thin, sterile needles into various locations on the face and body.
