Those looking to erase the years without surgery or drugs can experience what the Chinese Empresses and Emperors did nearly 2000 years ago. Facial rejuvenation rebalances energy and reduces wrinkles, fine lines, puffiness and other signs of aging through acupuncture and Chinese medicine. Hair-thin filaments are applied to pressure points on the body and a single visit can lift drooping eyes, tighten pores and increase collagen production. Treatments are simple, virtually pain-free and require no incisions, which means no down time. Facial rejuvenation provides lasting, natural-looking results that will bring out your innate beauty and radiance.

Wisdom steeped in the ways of the Ancient Doctors of China helped in the development of Acupuncture. The Ancients spoke of how the outside of the body reflects our inner workings. The results of cosmetic acupuncture reflect not only a change in external appearance, but also an improvement in total body wellness.
The focus is to treat the underlying causes of aging and thereby encouraging a “graceful aging process”. Discover a beauty secret used by Chinese nobility for thousands of years. Now you can harness this time-honored wisdom to reclaim a radiant and youthful appearance and reverse the aging process naturally without cosmetic surgery facelifts, Botox, or anti-aging skin creams needed to achieve beautiful skin.

Q. What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?
A: The Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture System is based solely on the theory and practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine. We believe that it is the perfect anti-aging medicine. External beauty is the result of becoming healthier on the inside. Achieving a more youthful appearance is accomplished in two ways: by improving the balance of Qi in your body and by bringing more Qi to your face.
The Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture experience is a relatively pain-free natural technique. Delicate, small, less than hair-width acupuncture filaments are placed in a precise configuration just under the skin’s surface to stimulate the production of collagen which increases muscle tone and elasticity.
Q: What’s the modern scientific rationale for how Cosmetic Acupuncture works?
A: Inserting filaments into the skin causes little micro-traumas that stimulate the body’s wound healing process. This wound healing process balances out the dispersal of collagen by encouraging fibroblasts (cells that form collagen and elastin fibers) to migrate to the treated sites and lay down new collagen fibers. That means that the skin becomes more collagen- and elastin- rich through the acupuncture process. New, younger looking, firmer skin is achieved.
Q: Will I look younger?
A: 90% of the women reported looking younger with one course of treatment according to a study published in The International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture.

How long your new look will last depends a lot on your lifestyle, and whether you are willing to address other areas that may need attention such as exercise, nutrition, and stress reduction, but at a fraction of the cost of other procedures.
