‘ ‘I tried cosmetic acupuncture and it’s better than botox’ Gwyneth Paltrow

Cosmetic acupuncture or Facial Rejuvenation is a safe and effective, treatment to reduce the signs of ageing. It is a natural alternative to Botox without the injection of toxic chemicals into your face.

Formulated to be a comfortable and enjoyable experience, treatments are based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, involving the insertion of very fine, disposable needles into the acupuncture points on the face and body. These superficial insertions increase local circulation to the face and stimulate natural collagen and elastin production, filling lines, and regenerating firmness to the skin for a healthy, glowing complexion.


  • Oxygenates and hydrates skin through increased circulation
  • Improves and strengthens muscle tone giving a natural lift
  • Increases natural collagen and elastin production
  • Brightens the eyes and lifting droopy eyelids
  • Improves dull, tired looking skin
  • Tightens large pores
  • Reducing inflammation, redness and scarring
  • Nourishes and moistens the skin from the inside, resulting in a healthy complexion and natural glow

The recommended treatment protocol is 10-15 sessions of Cosmetic Acupuncture in order to achieve optimal results. Two treatments per week prove to be most beneficial. Noticeable results are usually seen by the 5th treatment.


A 1996 report in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture stated that, with one course of treatments, 90% of the 300 individuals in the trial had a noticeable effect, including levelling of wrinkles, elasticity of facial muscles, a more delicate skin and a healthy, glowing complexion. An overall rejuvenation and sense of well-being was also reported.

Celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Madonna, Cher, Jennifer Aniston and Sandra Bullock have all publicly endorsed Cosmetic Acupuncture.
