How Does the Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture System Work?
From a Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective, Cosmetic Acupuncture treatments balance your energy overall which improves your general health as a whole. The appearance of your face is an aspect of the state of your overall health. The application of inserting tiny needles into the dermal layer creates a micro-trauma to the skin, to which the body responds with increased collagen and elastin production.
One goal of treatment is selecting specific acupuncture points, as well as additional areas, that act as envoys to direct the energy flow. This is the mechanism through which a trained Mei Zen practitioner aims to achieve results that produce a lifting effect of the area being treated.
Another aspect of treatment is to stimulate increased collagen and elastin stores in the local area being treated. The micro-trauma may also have a more widespread effect on balancing the dispersal of collagen, which is made visible when skin tone improves and becomes more supple.
Is Cosmetic Acupuncture Right for You?
The acupuncture facial rejuvenation technique promotes a natural “facelift” or “necklift” that works for most people, although there a few conditions that are contraindicated for this treatment, including: seizure disorders, pregnancy, uncontrolled hypertension, hemophilia and smoking. Migraine headaches must be resolved prior to participating in this protocol, and regular acupuncture is a very effective solution to this debilitating condition. If you are a smoker and would like support to quit, acupuncture is a great way to boost your chances of kicking the habit for good. The N.A.D.A. auricular acupuncture protocol is very effective, and if you’re interested I can put together a package that supports your smoking cessation goal.
Situations that are precautions to the Mei Zen System include: anticoagulant drug therapy and excessive intake of alcohol due to increased risk of bruising, and extensive sun damage which may interfere with achieving optimal results. In cases of extensive sun damage and a prior history of smoking, additional sessions beyond the initial protocol may be necessary to obtain desired results. The free consult is a time where your skin can be assessed and both practitioner and client can make an informed decision.
Sounds Great! When Can We Get Started?
The first step is to come in for a complimentary 30-minute consult to meet the practitioner. During this time you will be shown before and after pictures of people completing the treatment you are considering, and it’s a time to have any questions you may have answered.
Should you decide that the Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture system is right for you after the consult, you will need to come in for a regular acupuncture assessment and treatment so that any TCM patterns you have can be identified. This will only enhance your results as the best outcome comes from balancing your system as a whole.
In cases of chronic conditions, including digestive issues, you may need to come in for more than one regular acupuncture treatment to build your system before starting the desired protocol. Chinese herbal prescriptions that address your patterns of disharmony are often recommended and have a synergistic effect of building, regulating, or harmonizing your system in conjunction with the acupuncture treatments. They are optional however.
How Long Does the Cosmetic Acupuncture Protocol Take?
The cost of all Cosmetic Acupuncture protocols include a required initial assessment and you will receive a regular acupuncture treatment at that same appointment. This assessment is imperative to determining your patterns of disharmony that contribute to the aging process. The facial and neck protocols are (10) treatments each and sessions are scheduled twice weekly for (5) weeks. The abdominal toning, weight loss and fertility protocols are (18) treatments each and sessions are scheduled twice weekly for (6) weeks, then one session per week for (6) weeks. Pictures are taken before and after each protocol, and your results are reviewed at the end of each protocol.
Results can be from subtle to dramatic, just as in regular acupuncture. In the majority of cases, improvements are made and desired results are achieved. A balanced, well functioning digestive system, along with full compliance with dietary recommendations and suggested lifestyle changes give the best chance at receiving optimal results. This is a commitment to your health. Traditional Chinese Medicine is the true anti-aging medicine and Cosmetic Acupuncture is one of the therapies this ancient medical system offers.
