Mei has been a registered nurse for 30 years, and has also studied under Dr Vivian Tam for the past few years.

  • Fill out sunken areas
  • Eliminate fine wrinkles and puffiness around your eyes
  • Reduce the signs of stress in your face
  • Stimulate collagen and elastin production
  • Improve facial colour, uneven skin tone and muscle tone
  • Increase firmness and elasticity of the skin that you can see and feel
  • Leave you with a refreshed and rejuvenated face
  • Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture here at Kogarah Chiropractic & Acupuncture doesn’t wash off.

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture (cosmetic acupuncture) works by enhancing blood circulation to the face, reducing toxins, as well as stimulating cells to boost collagen and elastin production, relaxing tight muscles under the skin and tightening the muscles that have weakened.

Dr Lockart (Chiropractor and Acupuncturist) will insert needles into specific acupuncture points on the face to a depth of 3mm-10mm depending on the location. Using needles in the deepest part of the wrinkle is also a common technique to boost collagen and elastin production at the site while improving the muscle underneath the upper layers of the skin that are causing the wrinkles.

Also inserting the needles in specific locations, we activate the muscles that are weakened and relax the ones that are tight, which had caused a person’s face to sag and drop in the first place. The number of needles varies depending on your specific areas of concern and overall skin appearance. Rest assured that the Seirin needles that we use in your Facial Rejuvenation cosmetic sessions are tiny and ultrathin, and considered the best in the market..

For those people who don’t like needles at all we can use laser acupuncture on the same acupuncture points. It takes more sessions, and there is no discomfort whatsoever. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture doesn’t wash off.

Your facial acupuncture session with Dr Lockart involves addressing your primary concerns and anything he identifies during the examination process. He will use different techniques and products to achieve the desired results.

The first goal is to take a detailed look of your face. Next, use the Multi Radiance cold laser to stimulate the lymphatics. A lifting serum is then applied before feeling the skin and facial muscles. Dr Paul or Mei will then use the Gua Sha to improve the blood flow to the surface of your skin and further improve lymphatic flow with moving cupping. You are then ready for the Japanese Seirin needles to be inserted in specific facial points.

As soon as they’re inserted you will then have the low level light therapy switched on to shine over your face. When that is complete half an hour later, your needles will be removed and you will finish up with a sealing serum. Then off you go, back into the real world. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture doesn’t wash off!

Your first session takes about an hour and a half, while follow-ups take about an hour and 15 minutes. You will leave with a container of Chinese herbs to take internally which will enhance your improvement from the inside. Many times people’s faces lose their vitality due to poor nourishment internally. We aim to help you from the inside out plus helping you on the outside as well.

Come in and talk to Dr Paul or Mei, and look at their faces.

For a man in his mid 60s and a lady in her early 50s, you can see what Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture does for a person’s face. It doesn’t matter what your age is – ladies and men in their 20s and onwards. The photos here have not been photoshopped.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can get facial acupuncture?

Facial acupuncture is suitable for nearly anyone. “People come to get my help to relieve the effects of the ravages of hectic daily life.This therapy can minimise the appearance and feel of fine lines, wrinkles and sagging looking facial skin. The overall aim is to help your skin to return to a younger and more youthful state.

Is it painful?

You may feel the needles being inserted in some points sometimes for a second or two. If you’ve ever had your eyebrows plucked, it’s not as bad as that. The whole facial rejuvenation acupuncture experience produces results that can be felt and seen. We use techniques that combine modern technology with specialty acupuncture skills for your face. For people who don’t like needles at all, we use laser acupuncture which you will not feel at all. It just takes more sessions.

Are there any side effects?

Slight bruising may occur as there are many capillaries in the face. That’s why we take extra care by using finer needles to minimise the chance of bruising. The needles are removed much slower than when doing body acupuncture for this reason.

How many sessions do you recommend?

The primary goal of facial rejuvenation acupuncture is to help your skin to return to a more youthful state by promoting blood circulation in the face as it flushes out toxins from your skin and improving the tone of the muscles under your skin, that has been pulling your skin down.  Better blood flow transports more oxygen and nutrients to your skin and helps your skin produce collagen and elastin, which then can help diminish wrinkles. For the best results possible, we recommend that patients have one session per week over six weeks, then take it from there. Those who prefer laser acupuncture require two sessions per week for the first three weeks, so there’s an additional cost. The number of treatments required, by combining all these steps means that people usually need a lot less treatments. Periodic maintenance sessions are advisable, just like you would with your hair or nails.
