Paul Adkins is the Founder of Facial Enhancement Acupuncture: the anti-ageing, non-surgical facelift and skin revitalising treatment.
Qualified with an honours degree from the CTA Leamington College of Five-Element Acupuncture, Paul is a Traditional Acupuncturist practising in Truro, Cornwall, UK and the Vice-Principal of the International College of Acupuncture.
He is the author of the Pocket Guide to Facial Enhancement Acupuncture and his second book is entitled Facial Enhancement Acupuncture: Clinical Use and Application.
In 2004 Paul demonstrated his Facial Enhancement Acupuncture treatment for a beauty programme called Silicone Chicks, which aired on Sky’s Discovery Channel.
Paul has trained acupuncturists in over 30 countries to successfully practise this treatment in their clinics via his masterclasses, one-to-one training and online courses. As a result, there are now practitioners in the UK, Europe and as far afield as Canada, New Zealand, Japan, Singapore, US, South Africa, Israel and the Caribbean.
As well as lecturing on facial acupuncture both in the UK and worldwide, Paul became a Zita West Affiliated Fertility Acupuncturist in 2008. He specialises in Zita’s comprehensive, holistic approach to achieving optimum reproductive health.
Micro Needle Therapy, using dermal rollers, is the revolutionary beauty treatment launched at The Mitchell Hill Clinic in 2010. Paul saw this as a natural addition to his range of services and now offers training via his workshops and courses to fellow acupuncturists looking to practise this form of skin rejuvenation treatment in their clinics.
In 2012 Paul was honoured to be invited to present his Facial Enhancement Acupuncture workshop to the 15th National Acupuncture Association of India Conference in New Delhi. He was delighted to spread the word about this form of treatment for a TV series entitled Good Morning India, which aired to over one million viewers.
Paul presented Facial Enhancement Acupuncture at The International Cosmetic Acupuncture Summit in Tokyo in 2016 at the request of leading Japanese facial acupuncturist, Takao Ueda.
