Cosmetic facial acupuncture can be combined with light-emitting diode (LED) light therapy a combination of Eastern traditional practices meet with modern technology in this deeply relaxing treatment. Cosmetic facial acupuncture strengthens, stimulates and helps to re-harmonise the face and body’s energy circulation. Over a course of treatments it can tighten pores, tonify underlying soft tissues, soften fine lines and wrinkles, stimulate collagen production increasing the skin’s elasticity and improve the overall health of the skin.
Acupuncture stimulates your lymphatic and circulatory systems which work together to deliver nutrients and oxygen to your skin cells. This helps to even out your complexion and promotes a natural healthy glow to the skin. From a TCM Traditonal Chinese Medicine perspective, facial acupuncture treats the whole person. You treat the face therefore you are treating the whole person via the acupuncture points. These points are located on the bio-energy meridians (interconnected energy highways of the body), by improving the qi (bioenergy) and blood circulation raising it to the face, increasing vitality to the facial tissues whilst balancing the bodies underlying energy blocks.
By combining cosmetic acupuncture with the LED light therapy it creates a truly unique natural and minimally-invasive beauty treatment that is great for all-round skin health, delivering energy into the skin’s cells to boost collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. Over time, the cosmetic facial acupuncture with LED light treatments will have an accumulative effect, hydrating and plumping the skin to leave it glowing, with softened lines, and a more even skin texture and tone.

Red light increases cell enzyme activity and stimulates the production of collagen which is essential for repairing damaged skin tissue and improving skin texture. You should see a reduction in fine lines, scars, large pores and pigmentation. It is also recommended for eczema and rosacea as it speeds up and improves wound healing.
The green LED has a detoxifying and anti-ageing effect. It is especially good for lightening and reducing pigmentation. We can focus on under-eye dark circles, dark skin patches, broken capillaries and age/sunspots. Accelerating skin repair, green light can also help with acne redness, acne scarring and rosacea.
Blue light is recommended for stretch marks, cellulite, oily skin and acne (whiteheads and blackheads). It prevents bacteria build-up and tightens the skin. Rebalancing the body clock, blue LED therapy improves the lymphatic system’s detoxifying effect by helping to rid the body of toxins, waste, and other unwanted materials too.
Purple & Violet Light
Purple & violet LED is ideal for repairing the skin and treating acne. It helps eliminate toxins, reduces inflammation and improves healing and the circulation of blood around the face. It is also particularly effective in reducing inflammation or marks left from anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers or laser treatments.
Yellow light hydrates the skin and stimulates collagen production - great for anti-ageing! Initiating the rejuvenating process, it leaves skin looking healthier and more radiant. Particularly effective on fine lines and wrinkles, it also improves the appearance of pigmentation and reduces redness and inflammation.
Orange & Amber Light
Revitalising the skin, the orange and amber light is indicated for skin conditions such as redness and rosacea. Orange and amber LED light is not only calming and soothing, it is a natural detoxifier for the skin because it boosts lymphatic drainage (helping to remove toxins and bacteria) and increases cellular growth.
