Unfortunately, acne does not always go away once you're past your teenage years. Many people are plagued with acne well into their twenties and beyond. The powerful Clear Skin Organic Facial is designed to clean, treat and prevent adult breakouts. It jump-starts acne clearing and helps prevent acne well beyond the treatment.
The treatment begins with a deep double cleanse and exfoliation, followed by a herbal steam bath to soften and unclog skin pores. Next, careful manual extractions are followed by 15-20 minutes of High Frequency Therapy which is used to literally zap your pimples. The safe and gentle oxygenating power of high frequency electrical current has been proven to kill acne-causing bacteria and eliminate excess sebum and unwanted toxins while improving skin care product penetration and absorption. The skin is left feeling instantly energized, rosy, firm, refreshed and noticeably softer - even after just one treatment!
Now, with the skin super activated, comes the application of a facial mask that helps you attain radiant clear complexion and eliminates the signs of blemishes. Finally, toning and moisturizing complete the treatment. And of course, we wouldn't let you leave without a 50 SPF sunblock.
The results are excellent. Clear as that.

Lotus Acu-Facial is my signature natural anti-ageing facial that delivers impressive results. The treatment incorporates a spa-like cleanse and tone, Cosmetic Acupuncture and other traditional Chinese beauty techniques such as Gua Sha, jade roller and facial cupping.
What is Cosmetic Acupuncture and what are the benefits?
Cosmetic Acupuncture is a safe, gentle and natural holistic treatment that offers an increasingly popular alternative to more invasive rejuvenating cosmetic procedures. This treatment is now being used extensively by those keen to avoid surgical procedures and has been endorsed by a number of celebrities.
Cosmetic Acupuncture has its roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine, and in many ways, it is similar to any other acupuncture treatment but at the same time it utilises specialist needles and some particular needling techniques to reduce bruising risks and discomfort. It’s been proven to help combat sagging and drooping, soften fine lines and wrinkles, diminish eye bags and dark circles, puffiness and bloating of the face, and improve overall skin tone and complexion. It greatly reduces stress evident in the face, bringing out the beauty within. After a few sessions, eyes brighten, skin feels firmer, lips become plumper and blemishes vanish. The results are amazing!
How does Cosmetic Acupuncture work?
During the session, the muscle groups around the eyes, nose, mouth, jaw and neck are stimulated by the insertion of hair-thin needles into specific points. Cosmetic Acupuncture creates micro-punctures to the skin surface. As a consequence, the repair process releases numerous growth and healing factors that stimulate new collagen to be deposited under wrinkles, thereby filling them in. The stimulation from the needles enhances blood and lymph flow to the face, both of which can reduce the appearance of bags, lines and wrinkles and give the facial skin a healthy glow.
From TCM point of view, the needles activate energy in the energy channels (meridians) passing over those points addressing any “energy blockages” thus sending messages to the brain to “wake up” the muscles which effectively get lazier as we get older. The underlying objective of this treatment is designed to improve the function of organs and balance their relationship with each other through the stimulation of corresponding points of the face in order to improve circulation of blood and body fluids, absorption of nutrients and excretion of waste thereby positively influencing the appearance of facial skin. The treatment addresses systemic issues, such as anxiety, poor digestion, hormonal imbalance, reduced hydration and poor sleep – that may be responsible for premature ageing and often manifest themselves in the face. Therefore, the treatment is not just cosmetic - it facilitates the body’s natural balance restoring mechanism, helping achieve overall health and well-being.
What to expect during the session?
The needles will be left in place for approx. 30 minutes while you unwind and relax. Once the needles have been removed a variety of other traditional techniques will be used such as the use of essential oils, Gua Sha, facial cupping and a herbal mask to compliment the treatment.
Does Cosmetic Acupuncture hurt?
No, it doesn’t hurt. The needles used in the face are as little as 0.12 of millimetre – that’s finer than half of your hair strand! The majority of clients do not fee a thing however it is not unusual to feel a tiny and very quick prick as the needle is first inserted into your skin. Many clients actually comment on how relaxing the treatment is. It may seem unlikely that acupuncture treatment is relaxing, but the truth is that acupuncture increases the release of endorphins, those feel-good chemicals in your brain that make you feel mellow, rested, and less stressed!
How many sessions do I need?
A course of 6-8 treatments is recommended. Most clients notice a difference after one or two treatments, however, the effects become most noticeable and lasting after a course of treatments. Each person responds differently, depending on the condition of their skin and lifestyle prior to treatment. Following the initial course of treatments, maintenance treatments of once a month can prolong the results for five to ten years.
Am I suitable for Cosmetic Acupuncture?
Cosmetic Acupuncture is not suitable if you:
have heart conditions including poorly controlled high blood pressure
have a blood clotting disorder
are prone to bruising
are diagnosed as being HIV positive or having developed AIDS
have previously had hepatitis
have an acute herpes outbreak
have a migraine/severe headache
If you have had wrinkle relaxing injections, it’s best to avoid injected areas for 3 months. This is because it may counteract the effect of injections. Acupuncture can still target other areas of the face that are free from injections.
Back Facial is a way of cleansing and exfoliating an area that you cannot get to on your own. The treatment will clear up clogged pores, refine the skin texture, and make it smoother and clearer. Like other facials, having a back facial is relaxing.
Because the treatment works directly on your back, your muscles will release any tension they might have built. Areas like your neck, shoulders, and mid-section of your back, will benefit from the treatment's massaging motions.
Deep Cleansing Back Facial is specifically designed for those who experience back acne and struggle to access this hard to reach area.
This facial follows the same steps as a traditional facial however with extra focus on exfoliation, extractions and skin disinfection. The back is first cleansed and exfoliated deeply, followed by herbal steaming and comedone extraction. Next, High Frequency machine is used to kill acne-causing bacteria and eliminate excess sebum and unwanted toxins. Then a purifying and oil balancing mask is applied. The final step involves moisturizing the back to hydrate and restore nutrients with light massaging.
Products used in this treatment possess natural purifying, anti-inflammatory and soothing properties.
