Cosmetic Acupuncture

What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?

Cosmetic Acupuncture is a system of acupuncture based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that revitalizes and rejuvenates the face from the inside out.  Whether a person is seeking relief from pain and illness or simply desires to decrease a few wrinkles, the method of Chinese diagnosis is the same.  Facial acupuncture is just another way to show the versatility of this system of medicine.

While many external factors such as sun damage, stress, diet and lifestyle contribute to the health of our skin, our physical, emotional and spiritual health are also reflected on our skin.  The Mei Zen Acupuncture System balances you on the inside so that you look your healthiest on the outside!

Number of Treatments

The Mei Zen System is a minimum of ten treatments, twice weekly, over a period of five weeks.  Cosmetic Acupuncture is a series of treatments because your body takes time for collagen and elastin to repair and maintain.  As with any course of acupuncture treatments, the benefits of cosmetic acupuncture are cumulative and build with each treatment.

How much will it cost?

Acupuncture is very cost effective and much less expensive than other cosmetic procedures.  Facial rejuvenation through acupuncture is a viable alternative to more invasive facial procedures and surgeries that only address the surface, cost much more and can carry significant risks.  With cosmetic acupuncture there is no down time, no swelling and no significant bruising or scarring, Treatments are 90 minutes and cost $99.00 per session. Cash discounts & packages are available.

The popularity of this system is evidenced by recent write-ups in publications like the New York Times USA Today, and Allure magazine.

History of Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation:
Acupuncture has been used to treat skin complaints and reduce signs of aging for centuries. In fact, facial rejuvenation acupuncture, also known as cosmetic acupuncture, has a recorded history going as far back as China's Sung Dynasty (960AD - 1270AD), when the Empress and the Emperor's concubines used it to engender beauty and good health.
