Your Face

Your face is your most visible feature. You look in the mirror every day; it’s on Facebook; it’s in all your photos and it’s how you connect with everyone around you personally and professionally. Like it or not, your face is the most influential thing in your life. It can also be a primary source of our self-esteem, self-respect and confidence.

We all live fast-paced and stressful lives, which affects our health and makes us age faster than we would like.  Your face is a window into your health.  Bags or dark circles under the eyes, wrinkles, lines, sagging and skin blemishes can all be signs of health issues and of accelerated ageing.

Harsh Cosmetic Treatments

Many of us have already considered getting some form of cosmetic treatment to help improve some features on our face that we don’t like. Remedies that come to most people’s minds include injections, micro dermabrasion, chemical peels and even cosmetic surgery.

But there are of course down-sides to these types of treatments including:

  • Long recovery times – sometimes you can’t go out in public for more than a week.
  • Complications from repeat treatments – excessive injections can make the face droop and sag.
  • Impact on your health – repeated use of chemicals can cause health problems. You might look good in the short-term, but what are you doing to your health in the long-term?
  • Expensive – cosmetic treatments generally aren’t cheap.
  • Doing nothing to treat the root cause of problems on your face – there is often a health reason for wrinkles, blemishes, skin tone and sagging and Western medical treatments do nothing to address the root cause of the problem – so they may keep coming back.

Feel and Look Your Best with Cosmetic Acupuncture

Cosmetic Acupuncture (also known as facial rejuvenation acupuncture) is a natural and holistic approach to both feeling and looking your best. It is a real alternative to more expensive or more invasive procedures such as micro dermabrasion, injections and cosmetic surgery to help:

  • soften lines and deep wrinkles
  • even out skin tone
  • lift and firm sagging areas
  • rejuvenate and brighten tired and dull skin
  • soften acne scaring
  • address other issues like stress, fatigue, pain and poor sleep.

There are no harsh chemicals, drugs or invasive surgery.

Benefits of Cosmetic Acupuncture

  • Our aim is to leave your skin looking and feeling more vibrant, youthful, and healthy.
  • A holistic approach addressing your physical appearance and internal imbalances leaving you feeling rejuvenated from the inside out.
  • A natural and less-invasive alternative to injections, chemical peels and micro dermabrasion.
  • A beautifying treatment with less risk, minimal side effects and at a lower cost than other cosmetic procedures.

What We Aim to Do

  • 1-3 weeks – more radiant and better hydrated skin.
  • 4-8 weeks – skin is more toned and tightened while the lines of the face are softening.
  • 9-12 weeks – more significant and visible results.

Please note that while cosmetic acupuncture is a powerful approach, it is an organic process which does not erase all signs of ageing. This approach is designed to have you looking and feeling your best. Results can vary as every individual has their own unique response to the treatment process. The healthier you are the faster your results will generally appear.




Dr Sandra Wu and Dr Julia Cho both have a special interest in cosmetic acupuncture.

Main Body of Treatment

Your treatment will begin with a few acupuncture points along the body to address tension and internal imbalances. This helps you to relax during the treatment. This is then followed by some gentle facial acupuncture, addressing your requirements while restoring balance and fresh blood flow to the fine capillaries of the face.

Lifestyle Advice

As a healthy lifestyle contributes to the health of your overall body, which is reflected in the face, you will receive lifestyle advice during the initial consultation. This may include factors around your diet, exercise regime and down time.


How Cosmetic Acupuncture Works


On a cellular level facial acupuncture may boost collagen and elastin production. The fine needles used produce small, invisible tears in the skin, which stimulates the body to begin the healing process. This process begins with the activation of the immune system which encourages the skin to produce stronger collagen and elastin bonds in the area resulting in the softening of lines and toning of the skin.

Blood Circulation

Dark spots, a dull complexion and uneven skin tone can be improved with facial needling techniques as they encourage micro circulation and fresh blood flow to the skin while removing waste and dead skin cells.

Facial Muscles

The formation of a deep line or wrinkle begins in the muscle. Facial needling stimulates the muscles and tendons to either lift sagging areas or release tension. Techniques which soften lines incorporate the relaxation or toning of muscles.

Number of Treatment Sessions

A series of cosmetic acupuncture treatments is usually required as it is an organic process and optimal rejuvenation takes time.

At your initial visit, we will discuss your goals and advise how many treatments you may need.

Is it painful?

Cosmetic acupuncture is not painful. The insertion of the needles is very shallow with only a small prick felt at most. The needles used are of the highest quality designed specifically for comfortable and smooth insertion. In fact, it is common for clients to find facial acupuncture relaxing and to catch up on some sleep during treatment!


It is generally not advised to have cosmetic acupuncture if you have any of the following:

  • recurrent migraines
  • easily bruise
  • broken skin, cold sores, scabs, active acne, rashes
  • psoriasis
  • contagious skin problems
  • skin cancers
  • had a collagen injection within the last 3 months
  • recently have had micro-dermabrasion or laser therapy.
