Natural cosmetic treatments

At Acumend, we believe that beauty and healthy skin comes from within.

By focusing on prevention and addressing the root causes of skin concerns, we help you achieve a healthy, youthful complexion and overall well-being.

Adequate sleep, a balanced diet rich in nutrients, and effective stress management are the foundations upon which radiant skin health is built.

We consider your skin and body’s needs to develop a comprehensive management plan using a combination of Eastern and Western techniques for effective results.

Beauty should not come at the cost of harming our bodies. That’s why we offer a range of natural cosmetic treatments that are both effective and gentle.

When it comes to skin health, integrating multiple treatment methods can often lead to more effective results.

Micro-needling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves the use of a device with tiny needles that puncture the skin.

The tiny punctures made by the needles create micro-injuries in the skin, which prompt the skin’s natural healing process, including the production of collagen and elastin.

This can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars, as well as improve skin texture and tone. Micro-needling can be done on various parts of the body, such as the face, neck, and hands, and is suitable for all skin types.

LED light therapy

LED light therapy is a non-invasive and effective skincare treatment that uses varying wavelengths of light, including red and blue, to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots.

It works by stimulating cellular activity, which can lead to increased collagen production, improved circulation, and ultimately healthier-looking skin. Additionally, LED light therapy can be used to manage acne, inflammation, and hyperpigmentation.


Skin tightening and body contouring

The EXILIS ULTRA 360 is a skin tightening and body contouring treatment that uses a combination of radiofrequency and ultrasound technology to heat and stimulate the collagen fibres in the skin, resulting in a tightening and firming effect.

Cosmetic acupuncture

Like microneedling, cosmetic acupuncture seeks to treat skin concerns, support anti-aging and promote balance. At Acumend, we support our patients on their journey towards healthy, radiant and glowing skin.

We use Cosmetic acupuncture to treat common concerns such as:

  • Acne and scarring
  • Crows feet
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Frown lines
  • Loss of volume

Cosmetic acupuncture involves inserting individual acupuncture needles under the skin at varying locations, depths and angles to stimulate microtrauma and, in turn, the healing process.

This procedure is free from harsh chemicals and injections, offering a less invasive and more holistic alternative to cosmetic procedures that also seek to stimulate collagen production and improve skin elasticity.

Different colours of light are used in LED light therapy to target specific skin concerns. Red light is used to stimulate collagen production, blue light is used to kill acne-causing bacteria, and green light is used to reduce pigmentation.

Yes, LED light therapy is safe for all skin types. We adjust to the appropriate wavelength and intensity of light for each individual’s skin concerns.

Micro-needling can be uncomfortable, but most people tolerate the treatment well. A topical anaesthetic may be applied prior to the procedure to help minimise any discomfort. Some people may experience redness, swelling, or minor bruising after the treatment.

After a mirco-needling session, it is common to experience redness, swelling, and mild discomfort for several hours or even a few days. It is important to avoid direct sunlight and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen for at least a week after the procedure. You should also avoid using any harsh skincare products or exfoliants for several days.

The frequency of micro-needling treatments depends on the individual and their skin concerns. Generally, a series of treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart may be recommended for optimal results. After the initial series of treatments, maintenance treatments may be recommended every 6-12 months.

To prepare for a micro-needling treatment, it is important to avoid direct sunlight and tanning for at least a week before the procedure. You should also avoid using any retinoids or exfoliating agents for several days before the treatment. It is important to inform your provider of any medications you are taking or medical conditions you have that may affect the treatment.
