Five Element Acupuncture Nature's way of bringing you Health in Harmony

Facial Revitalization

Facial revitalization is a relatively painless, non-surgical method of reducing the signs of the aging process, sometimes referred to as a ‘Natural Face-Lift’
How Does it Work?

Through the insertion of extremely fine, sterile needles, energy is accessed with the intent of improving the flow of Qi and blood to the faceresulting in revitalization of these areas. Similarly, a warming, nourishing herb, moxa, is also used to further enhance these effects.


In consultation with the acupuncturist, the client decides which areas of the face they particularly wish to work on. This may be facial lines or blemishes etc. After which, needles are then inserted and left in for up to 20 minutes with the whole procedure lasting between 30-45 minutes. It is then recommended that up to 15 weekly treatments are carried out to allow the process to be as fully effective as possible.


In 1996 the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with Facial Acupuncture, 90% had marked effects with one course of treatment. The effects included: improvement of elasticity of facial muscles, leveling of wrinkles, a rosier complexion and overall rejuvenation not just confined to the face.

Why choose Facial Revitalization Acupuncture over other alternatives?

Facial revitalization is an excellent and more cost effective choice to surgery. It is safe, virtually painless and has few side effects or risks of disfigurement. It also carries no risk of drooping eyes and mouth associated with facial paralysis through the use of other treatments. However, there may be some slight temporary local bruising or spotting of blood, but this can also be taken as a sign that the process is working and will soon pass.
