What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?
Cosmetic Acupuncture or Facial Rejuvenation is a practice to enhance beauty and wellbeing. By increasing the blood ciculation it increases firmness, softens wrinkles, lifts the skin and gives you a bright, youthful glow. Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years in many parts of the world and it treats the underlying cause of the issues. Therefore making it a great treatment for problematic skin and acne. A safe and natural way to get glowing skin.
As you age your skin looses collagen and becomes less firm. Through using tiny acupuncture needles which are inserted in your skin your natural production of collagen and elastin is stimulated. This results in your skin looking beautiful and rejuvenated."

How does it work?
Lift and Tone - Needles are inserted into motor points of the face to target the muscles in your face. Through the natural response of your body, tense muscles will relax and loose muscles will tighten. This gives your face a more lifted appearance.
Firm and Tighten - To increase collagen and elastin production, needles are inserted into points of the face that need them the most. The body will naturally send a healing response which will soften lines and make the skin look and feel firmer.
Circulate and Balance - The acupuncture points are chosen specifically to increase blood and circulation which makes your skin look fresh and youthful. Underlying health issues that are the root cause of your skin problems are addressed and treated naturally.
How many Cosmetic Acupuncture treatments do I need?
A typical course of treatment consists of 10 consecutive, usually weekly, treatments to see desired results. While results are often noticeable after only a few sessions, it is recommended to go through a full treatment to achieve long lasting results. Maintenance sessions are recommended every 4 to 8 weeks.
Is it safe and does it hurt?
Getting acupuncture is a pleasant, relaxing and energising experience. The needles are hair thin, sterile and generally painless. They are gently placed with a high level of skill and often the insertion is barely noticeable for patients. We ensure that all our used equipment is sterile. Needles are only used one time and disposed after every treatment ensuring that there is no risk of infection.
How long does it take to see changes?
Usually patients feel improvements pretty much straight away. Within 1-2 weeks of treatment patients tend to feel like their skin is softer, more hydrated and glowy. The skin starts to feel tighter and lines begin to soften at around 4-6 weeks of treatment. Due to the increased blood flow the skin is more hydrated and healthy looking. Afterwards it is recommended to come in for maintenance sessions every 4 to 8 weeks to get longlasting results.
Results are always individual and depend on your body’s reaction to the facial needles. The treatment is completely chemically free since unlike Botox and fillers nothing gets injected into your face.
Lines and Wrinkles
Concerned by your wrinkles or laughter lines?
Collagen and elastin are you’re two best friends when it comes to soften the lines. Inserting painless fine needles along the lines causes your body to react with a healing response by producing more collagen and elastin. The effect? Plumper skin and softened lines.
With age the firmness and elasticity of your skin is affected which can cause sagging or drooping in the face. Using cosmetic acupuncture and therefore increasing the production of collagen and elastin locally can counteract this. After a few treatments already your skin will feel tighter and appear more plump.
Sagging skin can occur because of hormonal changes, ageing, worries and fatigue. Any time that your resources are reduced, or your health is affected, this can show in the skin. Acupuncture is used to relax and rebalance your whole body.
We can also work with the muscles of the affected area. Inserting needles in the correct muscles stimulates them. The results are tighter, stronger muscles that give your face a firm appearance.
Acne, Pimples and Scarring
Whether it’s whiteheads, large pores, or cystic boils. Acne and breakouts can affect people from all different ages and are usually caused by an imbalance in the body. We will help you gain a better understanding of what the cause of the problem is. Cosmetic acupuncture is an effective way to treat acne. By promoting the production of collagen and increasing blood circulation it helps the healing process of your skin. Acne scars and dis-coloration will fade because of the renewed and regenerated tissue.
Everyone's skin is different but usually the results are visible very quickly. With 1-2 weeks inflammation can be reduced and new breakouts become less frequent. Within 7 weeks of treatment you should be able to notice clear skin.
Types of acne that can be treated includes:
Common acne (white heads and red bumps)
Acne scarring (pigmentation, bumps, uneven skin)
Aurora will discuss an individual treatment plan with you during your consultation. Because acupuncture treats the root cause of your acne, you will see long term results in your skin and body without needing treatment forever.
Do you feel like you’re looking tired and dull? Time to give your skin a boost and do something about your lines, loss of firmness and sagging skin? No, we’re not talking about cosmetic surgery or botox. As you age, your skin loses collagen, leaving your skin looking less firm and tight. The solution: Cosmetic Acupuncture. You will look and feel vibrant, fresh and glowy! It’s much less expensive than a facelift as well as chemical and risk free
We start the consultation with a discussion about your face and the skin concerns and Aurora will assess your skin and facial muscles. She will explain the findings and following procedure in details. Feel free to ask any questions at any time.
Aurora will also assess your overall health through questions, feeling your pulse and looking at your tongue. She will be looking for signs of imbalance or general health concerns which might contribute to the condition of your skin and appearance.
Afterwards a treatment plan will be discussed with you so you know how many treatments are recommended to achieve your desired results.
Every treatment session is individual. Depending on your needs, different acupuncture points are stimulated by inserting very fine needles. Usually they are left in for about 20-30 minutes. During this time the lights are turned off and you are left to relax and have a little rest.
