Dr Alison Edwards

Dr Alison Edwards

General Practitioner

Dr Alison Edwards is a caring Melbourne trained GP of over 30 years experience who works together with our Chinese medicine team to provide experienced medical advice and integrative care to our patients. She graduated from the University of Melbourne in 1980 and has practiced in both Melbourne and across Australia. Alison loves the variety and challenge of general practice which cares for families of all ages. She now restricts her working week to Thursdays and Fridays, devoting her time to being the best doctor she can be by avoiding the current trend of quick fixes.

Women’s health, from adolescence to menopause and beyond, has always been an important focus of Alison’s work but she regards taking care of men’s health equally as important. Alison is also qualified in obstetrics and while not delivering babies anymore, she continues to care for pregnant women through the shared antenatal care offered by most Melbourne obstetric hospitals. Alison’s philosophy of practicing good medicine starts with establishing great relationships with her patients and working collaboratively to solve complex health challenges.

Facial rejuvenation and cosmetic acupuncture

Dr David Yang offers facial rejuvenation and cosmetic acupuncture appointments at our Melbourne CBD and Prahran clinics.

Facial rejuvenation acupuncture, also known as cosmetic acupuncture, is a cosmetic-focused and personalised treatment for those who are concerned about the signs of premature ageing that can affect the muscles, soft tissue and skin of the face.

Facial acupuncture treatments are performed by Chinese medicine practitioners who will assess your skin concerns combined with pulse and tongue diagnosis to uncover any internal organ imbalances.

In addition to using points on the body, your practitioner will apply extra-fine needles on the face to promote circulation and naturally stimulate your body’s own healing response.

Visible signs of premature ageing, long-term stress and poor internal body health can appear on different areas of the face as:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin sagging, drooping and loss of firmness
  • Dull and dry skin
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Acne and scarring
  • Skin redness, swelling and pain
  • Face and jaw tension

Acupuncture meridians connect every part of the body and a facial acupuncture treatment doesn’t just treat the face – it considers both internal and external symptoms and causes to gently and naturally treat each person’s face as a reflection of their whole body.

We advise our clients who have recently had any facial procedures, injections or treatment including laser, microdermabrasion, facial lifting or peeling, to wait 6 months before commencing facial acupuncture. It is recommended, but not required to remove makeup during your facial acupuncture session.

If you would like to know more, please call (03) 9629 9920 to book your initial facial acupuncture consultation and assessment with Dr David Yang.
