Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture
Look Younger... Feel Great!
Mei Zen means beautiful person. Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture is a great chemical-free alternative to botox, fillers, or other harsh procedures. Covering up the problem areas with fillers and chemicals ultimately lead to more damage over time.
For thousands of years, Chinese nobility used ancient healing methods to help them stay healthy and look beautiful. Chinese medicine supports attaining youth and beauty from the inside out. Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture is a safe, natural way to slow down the aging process and rejuvenate your body. You will look and feel great as the system focuses on improving your overall health.

How does it work?
Specific points are used to increase blood circulation and collagen production. The special technique affects the dermis layer, 3mm under the surface of the skin, to restore and rebuild the collagen and elastin matrix. The technique creates a microtrauma in the dermis which stimulates the skin's fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin to repair and heal the area. The results are the reduction of fine lines and softening of deep wrinkles.
The dermis takes four weeks to repair and rebuild the collagen and elastin matrix. Appointments are scheduled twice weekly for five weeks for a total of 10 treatments.
A single treatment "acupuncture facial" will brighten skin tone giving you a refreshed vibrant look that may last a fews days to a week. For longer lasting results, the 10-treatment series is encouraged.
For best results:
Do not miss any treatments
Follow a daily regimen of proper skin care at home
Stop the use of cigarettes and alcohol
Avoid unprotected sun exposure
Take Chinese herbal formulas prescribed by your practitioner to address internal imbalances which may be affecting the skin
Practice daily facial qigong exercises
Perform facial gua sha daily
With maintenance treatments, results may last 1-2 years for age 60+, and 2-5 years for age mid 30's-50's. Maintenance treatments consist of: a single treatment every 4-6 weeks OR two treatments in the same week every six months.
The ideal time to start cosmetic acupuncture is in your mid 30's. This is when the collagen and elastin matrix begins to break down.
Each appointment is $120. You will experience gentle acupuncture for overall well-being along with the Mei Zen cosmetic acupuncture protocol, aromatherapy, mild cleanser, toner, and a light face massage with moisturizer.
