Everyone these days is searching for ways to maintain a youthful appearance and more and more women are shying away from the invasive techniques that are available on the market today.
Sound like you? Then cosmetic facial acupuncture may be just the answer you are looking for!
The Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture System is a healthy alternative to face lifts and injectibles.
This is a treatment protocol that will help to revitalize your skin’s appearance while promoting a healthy mind and body all at the same time.
This treatment protocol uses acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine to boost the appearance and health of the facial skin. The points were derived from an ancient Chinese beauty remedy that is still applicable today.
The Goal: Using small hand needles, I will insert them into the dermal layer of the skin. The goal is to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin by causing a tiny ‘micro trauma’ to the facial tissue.
The Effect: When the body senses the tiny ‘trauma’ caused by the needle, it rushes collagen and elastin to the injury site for repair. In the repair process, your skin becomes more plump and resilient.
The Result: By increasing production of collagen and elastin, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is minimized, the quality and texture of the skin is improved, sagging of the eyelids and jawline is lifted, and color and luster of the skin is improved.
The Protocol for Treatment
The facial acupuncture protocol consists of 10 treatments administered 2 times per week for a total of 5 weeks. The treatments are generally 60 minutes long and include not only a full facial treatment, but a body acupuncture treatment as well.
Why 10 treatments in 5 weeks?
Well, it generally takes 5 weeks for the collagen and elastin to become permanent in the skin. It is also optimal to stimulate this production at least 2 times in the same week.
Doing the entire 10 treatment protocol is highly recommended to achieve maximum results.
This is especially true for more advanced signs of aging, sun damage, or if we are addressing acne or rosacia.
While the facial needles are applied to address the damage to the face caused by aging, the body needles are applied to treat the underlying constitutionality of your body.

As we all know, beauty comes from the inside out
Nutrition is very important for good health and it also directly infuences how our bodies and skin age. So I will advise you on Chinese diet therapy so that you may learn what foods may be contributing to unhealthy body patterns.
Herbal formulas are very important in helping you to achieve maximum results
You will also be advised on how a customized herbal formula can help to correct underlying imbalances and support overall treatment. Aging is heavily influenced by free radical damage to the cell structure, and herbs are a great way to reduce this type of damage. They also provide countless phytochemicals, vitamins, minerals and amino acids that are beneficial to the body.
