Facial Rejuvenation & Cosmetic Acupuncture
What is facial acupuncture?
Facial rejuvenation acupuncture, also known as cosmetic acupuncture, is a cosmetic-focused and personalised treatment for those who are concerned about the signs of premature ageing that can affect the muscles, soft tissue and skin of the face.
Facial acupuncture treatments are performed by Chinese medicine practitioners who will assess your skin concerns combined with pulse and tongue diagnosis to uncover any internal organ imbalances.
In addition to using points on the body, your practitioner will apply extra-fine needles on the face to promote circulation and naturally stimulate your body’s own healing response.
Your face is a reflection of your body
Acupuncture meridians connect every part of the body and a facial acupuncture treatment doesn’t just treat the face – it considers both internal and external symptoms and causes to gently and naturally treat each person’s face as a reflection of their whole body.
Visible signs of premature ageing, long-term stress and poor internal body health can appear on different areas of the face as:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin sagging, drooping and loss of firmness
- Dull and dry skin
- Uneven skin tone
- Acne and scarring
- Skin redness, swelling and pain
- Face and jaw tension
How much does it cost?
A course of facial acupuncture can be expensive, but if you don't mind sharing the room with others in our community acupuncture setting, you can experience the benefits for the same price as our regular community acupuncture.

We advise our clients who have recently had any facial procedures, injections or treatment including laser, microdermabrasion, facial lifting or peeling, to wait 6 months before commencing facial acupuncture. It is recommended, but not required to remove makeup during your facial acupuncture session.
