Cosmetic Acupuncture Therapy At The Omnicare Medical Centre South Melbourne

Cosmetic acupuncture here in Southbank is an extension of traditional acupuncture therapy found in Chinese Medicine. However, unlike cosmetic injectable treatments such as cosmetic injectables and dermal fillers, cosmetic acupuncture not only addresses the tell-tale signs of anti-ageing but also helps to improve skin health. As such, it is seen as a holistic treatment that restores and rejuvenates the face.

Acupuncture in South Melbourne – How Does Cosmetic Acupuncture Work?

On a physiological level, when fine needles are gently inserted into the facial area they create tiny areas of trauma known as ‘positive microtraumas’. When the body senses these it goes into repair mode. As a result, nutrients and oxygen are delivered to the skin cells, nourishing and replenishing them from the inside out. Positive microtraumas can also restimulate the production of collagen, improving the skin’s elasticity and reducing areas of fine lines and wrinkles.

Cosmetic Acupuncture – The Long-Term Expectations

Unlike cosmetic injectables or dermal fillers, cosmetic acupuncture here in Southbank is not a quick fix solution. Instead, our team strive to create long-term changes in the skin over several sessions. Most people experience better collagen production, brighter skin tones, reduced jaw tension and a softer more supple appearance after around 10 visits.
