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.  So 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 acupuncture) is a natural and holistic approach to both feeling and looking your best. It may be an alternative to more expensive or more invasive procedures such as micro dermabrasion, injections and cosmetic surgery.

There are no harsh chemicals, drugs or invasive surgery.

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 has 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.

Lifestyle Advice

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

Number of Cosmetic Acupuncture Sessions

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

Firstly, 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.
