Skincare and treatments at Acumend:

“We believe that beauty and healthy skin comes from within.”

Emphasising the importance of sleep, nutrition and stress management in promoting healthy skin while using acupuncture techniques,  herbal medicine – and good quality skincare products,  we work in sync with your needs. 

It is often recommended that acupuncture and or herbal formula be prescribed when a patient receives LED light therapy or microneedling. Your practitioner will provide you with further information during your first appointment and will likely make up a personalised herbal formula plan to complement your skincare treatment.

Microneedling

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure using an ultra-fine medical-grade needle cartridge to penetrate the surface of the skin. 

Creating micro-tears under the skin at a specific depth, microneedling is a technique that promotes the production of collagen and elastin. 

Microneedling can assist with issues related to hair loss, acne, hyperpigmentation, large pores, scars and stretch marks, fine lines, sun damage and skin elasticity. 

The Clinical Pro pen is quick and effective with minimal discomfort for the patient. The number of sessions required may vary according to the patient’s skin and desired results. 

It is common to experience redness of the treated area for up to 48 hours post-treatment. We recommend using an SPF50 sunscreen post-treatment as micro needling temporarily heightens skin sensitivity. 

Other management strategies such as acupuncture (body points), LED light therapy and herbal formula may be recommended to complement microneedling to support a positive outcome.

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

What is cosmetic acupuncture?

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

How do we differ?

Body points are always added as support and herbal formula may be recommended to assist with underlying root causes for concern according to Traditional Chinese Medicine principles. 

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

LED light therapy and hydrating mask can be applied once pins are removed to help nourish the skin (extra cost). Recommended treatments will vary according to patient goals and concerns.

 

On average

10-15 treatments are recommended with maintenance every 4-6 weeks.

ACUlight therapy

ACUlight therapy incorporates a combination of ancient theories with modern techniques to assist with managing skin problems.

ACUlight involves acupuncture techniques and LED light therapy at various wavelengths for a combination that aims to relax, improve and support your skin and body. 

These sessions are unique, holistic and prescribed individually.
