Cosmetic Acupuncture For Your Clinic

There are various types of acupuncture but one technique that is becoming increasingly popular is cosmetic acupuncture. Cosmetic acupuncture is a non-invasive treatment that involves using intradermal needles to improve skin condition and fight the ageing process. It can help reduce wrinkles, diminish fine lines, remove age spots and lift skin. 

Many celebrities are now trying different forms of facial acupuncture, but how can you use cosmetic acupuncture in your clinic?

Acuregen by Amanda Shayle 

Amanda Shayle, Acuregen Founder; has spent over a decade developing her facial rejuvenation techniques. Her innovations include specialist Thrive needles and adapted needling for the combination of the latest skincare and LED technology to achieve enhanced clinical outcomes.

In 2013, Amanda approached Phoenix and asked us to make her cosmetic acupuncture needles. She chose us because she used our standard acupuncture needles daily, and felt that our needles were unprecedented with quality. As the features Amanda required were not available anywhere globally, Amanda sought the assistance of Phoenix. 

After many months of work and many of prototypes later, Thrive needles were born! Featuring colour-coded tabs and flattened handles Thrive needles are unlike any other on the market. 

Since then, Acuregen has continued to grow – winning acclaimed awards and offering courses all over the world, including Europe, America and Dubai.
