Cosmetic Acupuncture is a two fold approach to address internal imbalances which over time become external issues showing on the facial area.

Cosmetic Acupuncture is the use of Traditional Chinese Acupuncture points and techniques to stimulate the muscles and skin of the face and body to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, discolouration, bags under the eyes and sagging skin to name a few.

Treatment is particularly beneficial for increasing hydration to plump and smooth fine lines & wrinkles, even out dull, dry or mottled complexion and to release deeply-held tension in the face.  

Regain a youthful glowing complexion through cosmetic acupuncture (also known as facial acupuncture) often described as the natural alternative to Botox!


At the Zen Medicine clinic, we also use other therapies in our Cosmetic Acupuncture treatments for the facial, neck and chest areas.  This includes cupping, which can temporarily mark the skin.  The aim is to improve and even the complexion, relax tense facial muscles (which left unchecked create lines and wrinkles), and skin plumping and skin toning. 

This is a wonderfully relaxing experience used in tandem with Gua Sha (skin scraping) and facial rejuvenation needling.
