What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?
Cosmetic Acupuncture is the use of acupuncture techniques and Chinese Medicine principals to soften the appearance of fine lines, tone facial muscles and renew the appearance.
How does Cosmetic Acupuncture work?
Cosmetic Acupuncture honours the bodies intelligence and utilises it to manipulate the appearance of fine lines.
Cosmetic Acupuncture involved the insertion of tiny intra-dermal needles into your areas of concern. This trigger the body to initiate a natural healing response, which includes collagen.
The collagen influx visibly plumps the area to soften lines. Other techniques are applied to tone facial muscles, encouraging them to lift, raise and tighten the appearance.
How soon can I have Cosmetic Acupuncture after having Botox?
First of all – no judgement. But, please allow 3-4 months after your most recent botox treatment before commencing Cosmetic Acupuncture
