Cosmetic / facial acupuncture

Cosmetic Acupuncture is not just about the face.

We offer holistic treatments that enhance your appearance naturally.

The history of facial acupuncture

The practice dates back to 221 BC in the Qin Dynasty when acupuncture and herbal medicines were provided for emperors and empresses to enhance their natural beauty and delay aging.

Yet in modern times, cosmetic acupuncture hasn’t always been well-known among the general population.

Today, among the acupuncture community, cosmetic acupuncture is one of the top subspecialties in the field and is rapidly becoming a sought-after alternative or adjunct to cosmetic injectables or surgery among consumers.

How facial acupuncture works?

Facial acupuncture is a safe and natural alternative to invasive anti-aging procedures and chemicals.

This ancient Chinese practice uses fine-gauge needles placed in specific “problem” areas on the face, such as frown lines, crow’s feet, mouth lines, and jowls.

When the needles are injected, they create tiny traumas to the skin, which trigger a physiological reaction that sends increased circulation and collagen to the “wounded” area.

    What are the benefits of facial acupuncture?

    At B&Q Acupuncture, we offers holistic treatments that enhance your appearance naturally.

    Our facial acupuncture uses the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to address signs of aging. It can improve your facial appearance and address underlying body imbalances that may contribute to the aging process.
