Haru Wellness makes beauty natural and simple, through its signature cosmetic acupuncture treatment.
Tucked away on the top floor of 953 Community Mall, in the heart of Sukhumvit Soi 53, is a gem of a beauty destination. Haru Wellness, which opened last year, has rolled out the best kept glowing secrets of Japanese women: beauty acupuncture. As acupuncture originally hails from China, the Chinese tend to use it as an alternative medicine to treat ailments. Thais, and a large portion of the Western world, tend to use it as a last resort when nothing else works, but the Japanese, particularly women, incorporate it as part of their beauty and health regimen, seeing it as something one just does to sustain their wellness and maintain their youthful radiance. Wellness is a routine, not a last port of call when all else has failed, and this may be a prime reason as to why the Japanese live longer, look younger, and have far fewer ailments.
The Haru Signature is cosmetic acupuncture, where 0.12mm needles (as opposed to the usual 0.25mm used in Chinese acupuncture clinics) are placed into key points around the face and on top of the head and left there for between 20 to 30 minutes. You might feel like there is a little ant biting you at some points, but the sensation sure enough subsides as you lie there and begin to feel the muscles in your face and body relax, and your mind stills.
Before starting, the acupuncturist will ask you what skin and health problems you might have, and will also perform a basic body check-up. Beside improving health conditions, Japanese cosmetic acupuncture can treat facial beauty concerns including fine lines, puffiness, sagginess, dark rings below eyes, acne, and melasma. The known benefits of cosmetic acupuncture address all these issues, getting right to the heart of the problem, which is usually under the skin. The needle stimulates the body to rebuild its collagen and reinvigorate a healthy circulation and normal hormone levels, allowing the skin to heal and renew itself. The known benefits of cosmetic acupuncture are that it restores the skin’s natural glow, makes blemishes fade away, lifts the skin, reduces wrinkles, postpones the ageing process and improves the skin’s tone, texture and complexion. For those who have melasma concerns, cosmetic acupuncture beats any known drug or procedure for treatment of this discolouration of skin, usually seen during pregnancy.
The real beauty of the Haru Signature is that it is a model alternative to going under the knife to address your skin concerns. Seen as a natural Botox, and sometimes referred to as aculifting, cosmetic acupuncture is far less invasive, uses no chemicals, and has no side effects, and the results are far better than a facial lift or Botox.
