Facial acupuncture is an excellent supplement or alternative to procedures such as cosmetic surgery or botox injections. It is safe, basically painless, and has no risks or side effects.  Facial acupuncture increases collagen production, thereby reducing fine lines and diminishing deep wrinkles. It improves overall facial tone, by stimulating weakened muscle fibers and relaxing overwrought muscle tensions. This effectively minimizes double chins, firms up jowls, reduces frown lines and bags under the eyes, as well as lifts droopy eyelids and eliminates facial puffiness.

Each session includes a "body treatment" to balance the pulses and prepare the body for treatment, as well as a neck or facial protocol to bring increased vitality to those areas. For the actual facial treatment, extremely fine needles are inserted to a shallow level to affect the muscles and collagen of the skin. 
Dietary, & general lifestyle advice is also an integral part of treatment.

Since each individual is unique, the response to treatment will vary depending on your age and lifestyle. Generally, results are noticeable after 6-7 sessions, although a radiant complexion and brightness in the eyes can be seen after the first treatment.  The recommended course of treatment is between 10 -12 sessions, and should be done 1-2 times a week. A treatment lasts about 60 minutes.  Maintenance is recommended once each month.

Who we are and how we live our lives is written on our faces. As time passes, and physical, spiritual, and emotional changes occur, our face reflects our transformation. The Chinese have practiced facial rejuvenation for centuries. The royalty of the Sung Dynasty (960AD - 1270AD) performed cosmetic acupuncture to help health and beauty from within to radiate to the outside. Through these sessions, Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture can help rejuvenate your body and revitalize your being to look and feel your best.

Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture is a treatment developed by acupuncturist Martha Lucas. There are two beneficial aspects to this treatment. One is a "root" treatment, which regulates the flow of energy (qi) and removes blockages in the meridians (channels of qi and blood) to improve overall health and restore balance to the body. This constitutional treatment addresses underlying causes, like digestive problems, hormonal imbalance and emotional stress, which become reflected in the face. The other is a local treatment, which directly affects facial appearance. Since many of the meridians begin or end on the face, there is an increase in circulation of blood, lymph and qi to the face that aids in moistening and creating a radiant color and glow to the skin.
