Discover a beauty secret used by Chinese nobility for thousands of years. Facial and body acupuncture for the purpose of enhancing beauty, reducing wrinkles, fine lines, jowl lines, crows feet has been done in China and Korea for 1000's of years using Acupuncture.
Using acupuncture needles on specific points on the face to enhance beauty and preserve a youthful appearance ha been done for centuries in China and other Asian countries, but it's just started to become popular in the United States in the past decade or so, practitioners say. Cosmetic acupuncture is done in the same fashion as acupuncture done for general health and specific conditions, with the goal of creating collagen just under the skin to help fill in wrinkles and plump skin, similar to the results of Botox, Restylane or plastic surgery. Like traditional acupuncture, the cosmetic version also aims to balance the body's energy and create a sense of well-being.
Increasingly, patients are opting for needles over the knife. The "Mei Zen" method - literally translated as "Beautiful Person," is a Trademarked procedure. The following prehistoric YouTube Video shows a form of treatment that we DO NOT RECOMMEND!
Cosmetic Acupuncture can improve the look of the entire face and not just certain spots, and it also appeals to many who balk at having foreign substances injected into their faces. It fills in wrinkles and increases the collagen production in areas that need it, like frown lines, smile lines and smoker's lines around the mouth. In addition, the color and texture of the skin brightens and smoothes and sagging gets lifted in a natural way. It's not like a surgical face lift because it's not that drastic. While most patients seek out the procedure to improve their looks and erase some of the toll time takes on all our faces, they find an added bonus in the increased sense of well-being that comes along with acupuncture. It addresses the person's overall health, whereas a lot of the Western techniques are just about the face.
Now you can harness this time-honored wisdom to reclaim a radiant and youthful appearance. Reverse the aging process naturally! Today surgical procedures: cosmetic surgery facelifts, Botox, Restorlin, Peels, Microdermabrasion, laser resurfacing, Fraxel or other invasive procedures are being used to achieve a youthful appearance. These procedures only address the 'outside,' can be expensive and carry significant risk.
The Mei Zen Cosmetic System utilizes an ancient needling technique that uses tiny fine needles that help to revitalize skin tone by stimulating collagen and elastin production naturally. This needling brings increased Qi and blood flow to the face. As a result one can expect a more youthful skin tone and coloring, a brighter appearance, reduction of lines and overall younger looking you. Mei Zen puts nothing into the skin, however, stimulates the body to be healthy. Mei Zen works to help to balance the body so that it corrects deficiencies present that are affecting aging.
Since this system is based upon Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Dr. Scott utilizes point selections to complete the balancing of energy. This results in an overall rejuvenating affect of body, mind & spirit. Diet, lifestyle and skin care are addressed.
If you want to look and feel revitalized while maintaining the essence of who you are, you are a great candidate for the Mei-Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture System!
