Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture

The Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture System™ is a healthy option for looking and feeling healthier and more vibrant. Though the procedure is not well known or publicized in the United States, cosmetic acupuncture – sometimes referred to as facial acupuncture – has been used for centuries in China by Emperors and the wealthy.  It is the only cosmetic procedure offered that actually improves your health.
 


There are many benefits to facial acupuncture, but the most obvious include:


Having softer, firmer skin
Reduction of deeper wrinkles
Possible elimination of finer wrinkles
Improvement in jowl lines.

 

Although not visually as dramatic as a surgical procedure, cosmetic acupuncture actually has a more dramatic overall effect. Besides the obvious visual changes, clients often report improved digestion, improved sleep quality, reduction of hot flashes, elimination of mild depression and anxiety, improved energy, and an overall sense of well-being.  

How Cosmetic Acupuncture Works

 

From a Western medical standpoint, cosmetic acupuncture works because the needling causes micro-traumas in the skin.  The body responds by increasing blood flow and by producing collagen and elastin for wound healing.  The needling, which is done at the level of the dermis, also may stimulate neurotransmitter production.  From the Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective, qi (pronounced “chee”) and blood are being brought to the face, qi is being lifted, and the body’s energetic systems are being put into balance.
