The team at spa@home Mallorca provide an extensive range of treatments to be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home. One of the most innovative treatments offered is cosmetic facial acupuncture, known as the natural alternative to Botox.

What is cosmetic facial acupuncture?

Cosmetic acupuncture is used as a natural anti-aging, smoothing and brightening treatment for the skin with the application of small acupuncture needles into specific points on the face.

How does cosmetic acupuncture work?

The application of needles creates an immediate increase of blood flow to the area that encourages oxygenation to the skin and an increase of lymph drainage and elimination of toxins. At a cellular level cell regeneration is increased smoothing lines and wrinkles which is due to the needles causing tissue damage which stimulates a wound-heal response, collagen is also stimulated to help plump up the skin. The skin tone and texture is improved, alongside a tightening to the muscles of the face and neck as the needles stimulate the muscles to tighten them.

How long does it take to see the results?

After one treatment you should see that the skin appears brighter and more toned. However we recommend a course of facials for a more significant anti-aging effect.

The oriental cosmetic facial also introduces the skin to a few other amazing Chinese facial tools including Chinese cupping which encourages the elimination of toxins, a facial Qua-Sha that lifts and tones and ‘irons’ out wrinkles. A jade roller is also introduced to reduce puffiness and increase lymphatic drainage.
