Benefits of Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture

The terms "Mei Zen" mean “beautiful person” in the Chinese language. For thousands of years, the Chinese upper class used ancient healing methods to help them maintain their health and beauty.  The Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture system is a safe, natural way to slow down the aging process and rejuvenate the physical appearance. 

 

Visible benefits include having softer, firmer skin, reduction of deeper wrinkles, possible elimination of finer wrinkles, better skin tone, reduced puffiness or darkness under the eyes, minimized jowls and overall more vibrant complexion. 

 

Although not as dramatic as a surgical procedure, Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture offers a more subtle approach and has a much more obvious overall effect in the form of “healthy side effects”. Besides an improvement in the external appearance, people have reported better digestion, improved sleep quality, reduced hot flashes, better mood, improved energy, easier ability to handle stress and an overall greater sense of well-being. People have completed their sessions not only looking younger but feeling younger, more energetic and remarkably healthier.

How does it work?

From a Western medicine standpoint, Cosmetic Acupuncture works because the needling causes micro-traumas in the skin to which the body responds by increasing blood flow and the production of collagen and elastin for wound healing.  The needling, which is done at the level of the dermis, may also stimulate neurotransmitter production.  From the Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective, Qi and Blood are being brought to the face, Qi is being lifted and the body’s energetic systems are being put into balance.  This is why we see amazing results within the entire body. The procedure is very low risk since the needling is so superficial, however bruising can occur on occasion.

  • Create softer firmer skin, reduce wrinkles, minimize jowls
  • Improve digestion, sleep quality, energy and mood
 

Additional Support

Besides the needling part of the procedure, you will learn about healthy skin care, nutrition, and supplementation that will help you achieve and maintain the best results possible.  You may also be recommended to take additional herbal or homeopathic formulas to enhance your results.

Program Details

 

There are 3 focus areas that can be covered with Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture:  the face, the neck and the abdomen. 

For each area, specific point protocols are used to create the desired outcome.  In addition to the area being treated, full body acupuncture is also administered so that there is a healthy platform to work from. This is why we see improved health results throughout the entire body.    

All sessions will last 60 minutes, including the initial full Traditional Chinese Medicine consultation appointment, which is separate from the 10 to 20 session protocols and can be booked at any time prior to starting the specific protocol. 

Each session includes an acupuncture treatment, for the face, neck or abdomen, a massage for the specific area being treated using Gua Sha and roller tools specific for Chinese medicine and lifestyle counselling. 

Facial Protocol

For the face protocol, ten treatments are scheduled twice a week for five weeks.  Each session includes the acupuncture treatment in addition to a facial and scalp massage using specific Chinese Medicine essential oils to enhance skin condition and retain moisture.   

 

Some of the reported outcomes include:

More radiant, youthful looking skin

Is everyone a candidate for Cosmetic Acupuncture?

 

No, not everyone is a candidate for cosmetic acupuncture. The following situations would exclude you from this type of treatment:

Haemophiliac / Seizure disorders / Taking blood thinning drugs / Having a pacemaker / Uncontrolled hypertension / Diabetes / Severe migraines / Former plastic surgery within the past 6 months / Pregnancy / Smoker / Alcoholic / Anyone with a serious medical condition or who has a history of seizures.

Maintaining Your Results

 

To maintain the best results possible, after completing the 10 session treatment protocol for the face or neck, it is highly recommended that you have a monthly maintenance Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture appointment.  Minimally you will want to have at least 1 treatment every 3 months.  Or you may choose to do the entire 10 treatment protocol once a year.  It’s a great idea to do this before the winter holiday season and New Year to look your best.

 

Generally, results will last 3-5 years, after which point a full Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture protocol is strongly suggested.
