Skincare Rituals for Skin Renewal
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture also known as Cosmetic Acupuncture is one of traditional Chinese medicine’s oldest practices.
The therapy of Facial Acupuncture assists with increasing collagen production, skin elasticity, skin tone and plumpness. It is a non-invasive skin treatment and requires no down time, naturally increasing your skin’s overall health and vitality - smoothing out fine lines, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, puffiness, sagging, dullness, de-hydration and skin texture.
Ongoing treatments that combine Facial Acupuncture, Gua Sha and Facial Rolling (with precious Jade stones), together with Facial Cupping or Derma Rolling (also known as Skin Needling) will improve skin collagen density and skin health and beauty.
The results of Facial Acupuncture are readily visible within days of treatment and is a must try treatment for anyone thinking about skin renewal and ant-ageing practices.
Dr Yvette Forbes (Acupuncture) is available through the week for facial acupuncture appointments at out Bondi Junction clinic.

How Does Light Energy work?
Specific wavelengths of light energy, when properly absorbed, up-regulates compromised cells. The light (photons) energy is absorbed by photoacceptors in the mitochondria and used to create adenosine triphosphate (ATP). The ATP produced then stimulates various metabolic processes which can result in the repair and regeneration of cell and tissue components.
Specific wavelengths of light energy, when properly absorbed, up-regulates compromised or damaged cells. The light (photons) energy is absorbed by photoacceptors in the mitochondria and used to create adenosine triphosphate (ATP). The ATP produced then stimulates various metabolic processes which can result in the repair and regeneration of cell and tissue components. Blue, red and near-infrared are the most commonly used wavelengths in LED phototherapy. These specific wavelengths are well researched and scientifically proven to produce therapeutic benefits. Blue penetrates through the epidermis and is known to kill P.acnes bacteria. Red penetrates into the dermal layer and has been shown to enhance collagen and elastin production through photo-biostimulation of fibroblasts. Near-infrared penetrates deepest and increases micro-circulation (tissue repair), decreases inflammation and attenuates pain.
