Are you looking for a natural and long-lasting solution to the ageing process? Do you suffer from acne breakouts or scarring?


Facial Rejuvenation acupuncture often hailed as a ‘natural facelift’, works in several ways:

  • By increasing blood flow and circulation to the face, the treatment lifts and tones sagging muscles and skin reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and rejuvenates the complexion to give a fresher glow.
  • External signs of ageing, such as fine lines, congested skin and dark circles under the eyes, are often a sign of imbalances internally in the body. As acupuncture is designed to address the underlying causes which may be contributing to areas of concern on the face, treatment will not only revitalise you from the outside but balance you internally, leading to longer-lasting, vibrant skin and overall well-being.

Light therapy is an ideal addition to facial rejuvenation acupuncture. It can also be used as a stand-alone treatment.

What is light therapy: Light Emitting Diode (LED) phototherapy is the application of light energy to tissue to improve cellular performance by accelerating the repair and replenishment of compromised tissue cells.  Research has shown that light therapy can:

  • Stimulate skin cell micro-circulation
  • Increase collagen and elastin production
  • Soften fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improve lymphatic drainage
  • Improve skin tone, texture and clarity
  • Diminish acne bacteria
  • Clear existing acne breakouts
  • Reduce scar tissue
  • Delay the signs of ageing

How does it work: Celluma® light therapy mimics a natural biochemical reaction process to deliver UV-free, low-level light energy. Based on NASA research, it produces blue, red and near-infrared light energy simultaneously. Each wavelength is absorbed by different molecules that act as a signalling mechanism for different cellular processes. Blue wavelength LED, for example, affects the P. acnes bacteria cells, causing bacteria to destroy itself. Red wavelength LED is absorbed by fibroblasts cells, causing an up-regulation of ATP cells, increasing collagen and elastin, the proteins that keep your skin looking youthful, firm and tight.

Treatments are gentle and relaxing: ultra-fine specialist facial needles are inserted into the skin of the face and retained for about 20 minutes. This is followed by 30 minutes of light therapy. A soothing facial massage with jade rollers to smooth lines, promote healing and release muscle tension complete the treatment.
