Cosmetic Acupuncture is a holistic treatment that uses traditional and modern acupuncture techniques. The treatments are designed for the individual; it involves no injections or surgery and is suitable for all skin types. Unlike other aesthetic treatments there are no long lasting adverse reactions and it does not compromise facial mobility. Treatment usually consists of between 12 to 15 sessions, with at least one visit a week.
It is important that you first discuss your specific concerns with one of our therapists to make sure that it is suitable for you.
