Cosmetic or Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture (FRA) offers an effective non-invasive alternative to plastic surgery. Unlike Botox, which carries a large number of possible side effects, FRA is a totally natural and holistic anti-ageing treatment that aims to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

FRA treatment concentrates on points and muscles of the face in order to improve elasticity of your skin and general overall appearance.

The needling increases Qi (energy) and blood flow to the face which helps the production of collagen and elastin. Since this system is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), acupuncture points on the body are also used to complete the balancing of energy. This results in an overall rejuvenating effect on the body, mind and spirit. Diet, lifestyle and skin care are also evaluated and addressed.

The protocol begins with a consultation to determine your overall health and if you qualify for the procedure (please check the contraindications section below). We will discuss your goals and tailor a treatment plan specific to your needs. For best results, it is recommended to receive treatments two times a week for five weeks or once a week for ten weeks.
