About Cosmetic Acupuncture


Acuregen’s Unique Approach to cosmetic acupuncture is a very special all-in-one treat. This is an ADVANCED FACIAL. We use the finest quality specialist needles created by Founder, Amanda Shayle. These are inserted into the skin of the face, neck and body for a natural anti-ageing treatment that aims to rejuvenate overall elasticity and complexion.

How does it work? Needles produce a micro-injury to the skin which creates a healing response. Known as collagen-induction - this is the way the body heals tissue after the initiation of ‘acute inflammation’. Our treatments are very gentle and stepped-up as the (recommended) course of 1.5 hour sessions progresses.

We also work with body and ear acupuncture to relax you as this improves healing response. As many beauty concerns arise from reduced health - we work on that too, using acupuncture, LED Light Therapy, Sound/Vibration therapy and more. Every session will be different as part of the ‘treat’ to ensure you FEEL LOVED AND LOOK LOVED!

What about medical micro-needling?

On your initial consultation we will discuss your tailored treatment plan with you. These treatments initiate a process of changes which is why a 6 to 12 sessions over a 3 month period is recommended. You may see these changes quickly but real results (you will be advised about outcomes) will normally take about 3 months - rather like a plant. A seed cannot produce flowers overnight.

If medical micro-needling is recommended (skin roller or pen) we will usually wait until the 4th week to ensure your skin and you are ready for this step up. Our techniques are very gentle - treat not trauma. We will punctuate such sessions with cosmetic acupuncture and give you homework. We are your health team partner. Gentle regular treatments promote better results
