The Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture System is for individuals who want to LOOK and FEEL their best. Balancing the flow of Qi and blood throughout the body creates beauty that radiates from the inside out.
The ancient wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine is now supported by medical science and is quickly gaining recognition in the western medical world. Beyond medicine, celebrities are also gravitating to the natural healing powers of Acupuncture.
Cosmetic Acupuncture utilizes the face, neck and abdomen for anti-aging, weight loss and fertility treatments. Common results from the face and neck treatments include:
• Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
• Firmer, smoother skin
• Less swelling and under the eye discoloration
• Brighter and more even skin tone
• Reduction in jowls and sagging skin
• Reduction in acne and scarring
The abdominal treatment balances the digestive, immune, endocrine, and neurological systems that can interfere with fertility and weight loss. Common results include:
• Regulated menstrual cycles- without pain!
• Reduction in PMS symptoms
• Less bloating and bowel regularity
• Reduction in allergies
• Better sleep and improved mood
• Less need for medications
Mei Zen translates to “beautiful person” the cosmetic acupuncture system uses Traditional Chinese Medicine to address the visual signs of aging (wrinkles, sagging skin etc.) and other cosmetic concerns, such as acne, facial paralysis, and swelling.
The specialized needling techniques used in the Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture system are rooted in the classical texts of Traditional Chinese Medicine. This superficial needling increases the quality of Qi and blood circulating in the face. From a biomedical perspective the sterile needles cause micro traumas in the dermis, where collagen and elastin are produced.
The Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture System is a series of 10 treatments (2 treatments per week for 5 weeks). Patients receive a cosmetic and body treatment to address internal health concerns.
There will also be guidance on food therapy, relaxation and lifestyle techniques for support during the process. Herbs, supplements and Mei Zen Cosmetics may also be recommended to synergistically address internal health and cosmetic concerns.
The needles used in Cosmetic Acupuncture are sterile, single use needles that are extremely small, about the size of a dog’s whisker. Typically there is no pain, but patients may experience a “pinch” on insertion.
If there is pain beyond the millisecond it takes to insert the needle, you should communicate it to your practitioner.
In healthy individuals results will last 2-3 years. Most people take on the healthy habits recommended during their cosmetic treatments.
Because Acupuncture is a holistic therapy that treats mind, body and spirit there are several positive “side effects” from receiving cosmetic acupuncture treatments. Patients often report improved digestion, restful sleep, balanced mood, greater sense of wellbeing and much more.
As with any Acupuncture treatment there is always the risk of bleeding or bruising. These instances are not very common and can be remedied with homeopathic arnica and or moxibustion. If you experience any unwanted symptoms communicate them to your practitioner.
Botulism bacterium (sterilized) or “Botox” consists of injecting a substance into the face. Cosmetic Acupuncture does NOT inject any substance into the body; it stimulates the body to produce its own anti aging properties.
Botox injections are done in a single day and the results last 3-6 months. Cosmetic Acupuncture is a 5-week series of treatments that yield results for 2-3 years.
