Have You Tried Facial Acupuncture?

Dr. Lanalle, founder of The Chiron Clinic tells you all you wanted to know about Facial Acupuncture.

Facial Acupuncture is an invasive organic treatment for anti – aging and increasingly proving more popular as a natural beauty method over cosmetic facial surgery. Originated from Ancient Korea and China, the treatment involves fine sterile needles to the face, which offer results similar to that of a mini face lift. The facial needles improve blood and energy circulation, nourish your skin and increase natural collagen production to diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and dull skin.

Dr. Lanalle, suggests the best age to start facial acupuncture should be in your 20’s or 30’s to re- boost the health of your skin, and prevention of course is the preferred choice over cosmetic surgery risks and costs later on. At the Chiron Clinic a single treatment lasts for 90 minutes and during the consultation, the doctor will analyse your face to determine any dietary habits that may be causing bad skin or early signs of ageing, both internally and externally.

Benefits of Facial Acupuncture:


Puffiness is a sign of digestive problems, allergies or poor lymphatic drainage. Fine sterile needles at certain points in the face can ignite the healing response in the body and reduce overall puffiness.

Breakout out in smiles

Facial acupuncture has a calming, rebalancing effect and can help with regular breakouts, which can be caused by chronic conditions or hormonal imbalance.

Control Rosacea

This effective treatment can help reduce redness and irritation in the skins tissue.

Brighten Dull Skin

By putting a needle in the facial skin, instantly the blood circulation is stimulated and energy levels are raised.

Tighten and Tone

Simply a few needle pricks can firm up the face by toning the muscle and relaxing the muscles that are too tight and tighten the ones that are too loose. Facial acupuncture is great for sculpting the cheeks and jawline.
