Mei Zen Acupuncture System

The Mei Zen (Beautiful Person) Cosmetic Acupuncture system is a patented technique that uses a very shallow

needling style based on ancient methods. Reported benefits of this system include:

- Improvement in the fine lines of the face and a diminishing effect on deeper wrinkles

- Moisturized, softer skin and a more even skin tone

- Improved muscle tone and firmer jaw line, as well as reduction in the beginning of jowls

- Restore brightness and vitality to the complexion

Just like the classical acupuncture, Mei Zen is rooted in the foundation of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Each treatment is tailored individually to the patient and imbalances are addressed as part of every treatment. As a result, many patients also experience a variety of beneficial "side effects" from their cosmetic treatments. These side effects may include:

- Improved sleep, digestion, and energy and reduction of hot flashes.

The recommended course of treatment for cosmetic acupuncture is 10 to 12 treatments - 2x per week for 5 to 6 consecutive weeks. The initial consultation includes a discussion about the Mei Zen system and the patient's

goals, as well as a brief health assessment. The health assessment helps the acupuncturist determine an individualized

treatment specifically for you.

An important part of cosmetic acupuncture is that beauty begins on the inside, and good health is the first step toward

beautiful skin. As a result, at-home acupressure routines and lifestyle, diet and herbal advice concerning skin health

and radiance are also offered.

Cosmetic acupuncture can also address acne and rosacea.

How does it work?

The skin is the body's largest organ, and its health is greatly affected by illnesses or imbalances in the rest of the body.

When qi (pronounced "chee"), or energy, becomes stagnant as a result of illness or aging, the skin may suffer from lack of nourishment. Loss of elasticity, sagging, or wrinkles may result.

Cosmetic acupuncture is a protocol that involves needling at specific points on the face to help move qi properly through

the facial channels. This helps revitalize the skin by bringing qi to the necessary areas. Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, brighter, softer, more evenly-toned skin and a tighter jaw line are the intended result.

In Mei Zen, the needles are inserted to a depth of 3-4mm. This is very shallow and puts the tip of the needle into

the layer of the skin called the dermis, where collagen production occurs. The presence of needles in the dermis is

said to increase the production of collagen and elastin.
