Anti-Aging for the Face & Neck,
The Mei Zen style of Cosmetic Acupuncture is an anti-aging system to help you look and feel younger and improve overall health. These treatments have been used for centuries in China to prevent and treat the effects of aging. Although most people use Cosmetic Acupuncture to reverse the effects of aging, it is also effective for prevention. The skin starts changing in the late 30s and that is the ideal time to start using Cosmetic Acupuncture for prevention. Even if you don’t “need” it, the treatments will revitalize your skin and help you look your best.
These natural treatments work by inserting tiny needles into the face, neck, or abdomen, which causes micro-traumas in the skin that the body then heals by increasing blood flow as well as production of collagen and elastin. Unlike Botox that has many possible side effects, Cosmetic Acupuncture is totally natural and has no side effects, although occasional bruising may occur.
Typically, we use a 10 treatment package with treatments twice a week for 5 weeks. Depending on your area of focus, you may choose the face, neck, or abdominal protocol. In addition, we give recommendations for skin care, nutrition, and herbal formulas to achieve and maintain optimal results. Since we are also doing an overall acupuncture treatment at the same time, general health including digestion, sleep, energy, and moods will also improve. Not only will you look and feel younger, but your overall health will improve as well by balancing your body and mind to bring out the natural beauty within you. For accelerated results, we recommend using the Mei Zen Cosmetics skin care products as well. After the initial protocol package, a monthly maintenance treatment is recommended.
The results of the Face Protocol typically include improved complexion, improved elasticity, reduction of wrinkles and fine lines, fading of dark spots, reduction of smile lines and frown lines, reduction of crow’s feet and darkness around the eyes, reduction of general puffiness and bags under the eyes, improvement in jowls and drooping eyelids, and reduction of eczema, acne, and rosacea.
The results of the Neck Protocol typically include improved complexion, improved elasticity, reduction of wrinkles and fine lines, fading of dark spots, reduction of general puffiness, improvement in jowls and neck waddle, reduction of wrinkles on the décolleté, and reduction of eczema, acne, and rosacea.
