Facial acupuncture (also called cosmetic acupuncture or facelift by acupuncture) is a wholly natural method that has been used for thousands of years to restore the radiance of the face by toning the muscles, fighting against skin aging and maintaining youthful and glowing skin, without the need of chemical peels or painful injections.

The results are visible from the first sessions: the body's natural processes of cell reproduction and growth are stimulated, the skin is radiant with an immediate healthy glow effect and any evident stress in the face is reduced.

Above all, this is THE treatment for those who are really busy and overloaded. We tell you everything herein!




So what is Aculifting?

Adopted by a number of celebrities including Demi Moore, Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna, this ancient acupuncture treatment is said to naturally address skin’s overall health helping make it look younger and smoother.

A cheaper and safer alternative to Botox and Cosmetic surgery, acupuncture is a form of treatment that involves inserting very thin needles to various depths of the skin, activated through gentle and specific movements of the practitioner's hands or with electrical stimulation. As the sessions progress, aculifting acts on the quality of the skin due to the activation of the blood circulation, stimulating facial muscles and collagen production which delays the onset of fine lines and wrinkles. As a result, sagging skin, responsible for aging of the skin, is slowed down and the positive results are long-lasting.


How a session goes?

Inspired by the principles of traditional Chinese medicine with a holistic approach to the individual, the acupuncture treatment assesses the vital energy of the body (Qi). The session starts by an examination of your skin, more specifically its type and condition, where the acupuncturist enquires about your lifestyle, your personal and family history.

Following that, the practitioner inserts very quickly and precisely fine sterile needles at specific acupuncture points on the face to obtain simultaneous contraction of the skin muscles, which is essential for the effectiveness of the treatment.

Some temporary tingling may be felt, but no traces or marks appear on the face: the skin becomes luminous and toned.


The Benefits of acupuncture facelift

Facial Acupuncture brings out your inner beauty and radiance just after the first session, but the benefits are more visible the following days, and remain so for 1 to 3 weeks. Aculifting boosts the circulation, helps the lymphatic system drain away toxins and stimulates production of new collagen, fighting the onset and installation of signs of aging without risk. Wrinkles are smoothed out, the skin texture is refined and the complexion is luminous. Aculifting has also some positive effects on the person’s general state of health improving sleep quality and boosting the immune and digestive systems.
