At Komyuniti Wellness, we offer Melbourne, cosmetic acupuncture treatments to address common and chronic skin concerns such as acne, acne scarring, dryness, dullness, flakiness, sensitive and reactive skin, concerns with tone and texture, pigmentation and uneven skin tone, fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging. We believe in celebrating and embracing the natural process of aging and offer non-invasive treatment strategies to elevate the skin and facial structure without compromising the unique characteristics of the individual.
Our treatment approach combines external and internal treatment strategies. We use cosmetic acupuncture, electric micro stimulation and LED light therapy to stimulate elastin, collagen, and glycosaminoglycans production in the dermis layer of the skin, improving the skin’s shape, elasticity, hydration, and moisture levels. Additionally, we address underlying internal disharmonies contributing to skin concerns through Chinese herbal therapy and distal acupuncture, nourishing, building, and moving blood, lymph, and fluids to restore the body’s physiology to optimum functioning.
During the initial consultation from our Melbourne clinic, our practitioner evaluates the individual’s facial muscles and overall health, including digestion, sleep, and mental well-being. This ensures that the treatment targets both the external skin condition and internal disharmonies contributing to the skin concern. Our five treatment strategies include facial acupuncture, Micro current electro stimulation on facial motor points and nerves, LED light therapy, Gua Sha massage, and internal herbal medicine and distal acupuncture.
We recommend completing an 8-12 week treatment course for optimal results at our Fitzroy clinic, starting with weekly treatments for the first four sessions, followed by fortnightly sessions and monthly maintenance thereafter. Each treatment compounds onto the previous treatment, with results improving over time and consistent treatments.
Cosmetic acupuncture is a type of facial acupuncture that is improve the overall appearance of the skin by addressing the underlying imbalances in the body. Here are some ways in which cosmetic acupuncture may benefit the skin:
LED (light-emitting diode) therapy is a non-invasive and painless cosmetic treatment that uses different wavelengths of light to penetrate the skin at varying depths. The therapy is used to target different skin concerns, including acne, fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, and inflammation. LED light therapy benefits the skin by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential proteins for the skin’s structure, firmness, and elasticity.
Red light therapy, for example, can penetrate the skin’s surface and reach the dermis layer, where it can promote the production of collagen and elastin. This increased production of collagen and elastin can result in firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin.
Blue light therapy is another form of LED light therapy that is commonly used to treat acne. It works by killing the bacteria that cause acne, reducing inflammation and redness associated with acne, and regulating oil production, which can prevent clogged pores and breakouts.
Other benefits of LED light therapy include reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving skin texture and tone, reducing inflammation and redness, and promoting wound healing. Therefore, LED light therapy is a safe and effective way to improve the appearance and health of the skin without invasive procedures. However, it’s important to consult with a licensed and experienced therapist to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for your skin concerns.
Also we provide Facial Micro current stimulation to our treatments, an advanced and non-invasive solution for achieving defined facial contours, reducing wrinkles, and tightening the skin. Using gentle micro currents, this treatment stimulates the muscles and tissues, instantly enhancing your appearance. It boosts blood circulation, promotes collagen production, and helps you achieve a more youthful look without the need for invasive procedures.
