Benefits of Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture

Look and feel younger.

The terms "Mei Zen" mean “beautiful person” in the Chinese language. For thousands of years, the Chinese upper class used ancient healing methods to help them maintain their health and beauty.  The Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture system is a safe, natural way to slow down the aging process and rejuvenate the physical appearance. 


Visible benefits include having softer, firmer skin, reduction of deeper wrinkles, possible elimination of finer wrinkles, better skin tone, reduced puffiness or darkness under the eyes, minimized jowls and overall more vibrant complexion.  Although not as dramatic as a surgical procedure, Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture offers a more subtle approach and has a much more obvious overall effect in the form of “healthy side effects”.  Besides an improvement in the external appearance, people have reported better digestion, improved sleep quality, reduced hot flashes, better mood, improved energy, easier ability to handle stress and an overall greater sense of well-being.  People have completed their sessions not only looking younger but feeling younger, more energetic and remarkably healthier.


How does it work?

A closer look into why acupuncture is so effective.

From a Western Medicine standpoint, Cosmetic Acupuncture works because the needling causes micro-traumas in the skin to which the body responds by increasing blood flow and the production of collagen and elastin for wound healing.  The needling, which is done at the level of the dermis, may also stimulate neurotransmitter production.  From the Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective, Qi and Blood are being brought to the face, Qi is being lifted and the body’s energetic systems are being put into balance.  This is why we see amazing results within the entire body.  The procedure is very low risk since the needling is so superficial, however bruising can occur on occasion.

  • Create softer firmer skin, reduce wrinkles, minimize jowls
  • Improve digestion, sleep quality, energy and mood

Risks and Side Effects

Face and Neck: As with all cosmetic procedures that work at the level of the dermis, bruising can occur. The face and neck are highly vascular areas and the degree of bruising that can occur varies from person to person. Unfortunately it is not possible to know in advance whether a person will bruise and in which area. Some people naturally bruise more than others, especially if a person is taking Aspirin and other blood thinning agents, like Vitamin E. Therefore, it is ideal to schedule single sessions or the full Mei Zen protocol to end at least 2 weeks prior to any special event or occasion.


A person may be more sensitive to the needling when they are menstruating. If this occurs, it is especially good to avoid inflammatory triggers, like sugar and caffeine and to get more sleep and rest during this time. 


It is common for a person to feel tired after a treatment and we recommend not booking any strenuous activities afterwards.  


Abdomen: For abdominal cysts or fibroids, a full assessment would need to be performed prior to beginning the protocol. There may be a recommendation to balance the body with a number of regular acupuncture treatments prior to commencing the Mei Zen abdominal protocol.

Program Details

There are 3 focus areas that can be covered with Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture:  the face, the neck and the abdomen. 

For each area, specific point protocols are used to create the desired outcome.  In addition to the area being treated, full body acupuncture is also administered so that there is a healthy platform to work from. This is why we see improved health results throughout the entire body.    

All sessions will last 60 minutes, including the initial full Traditional Chinese Medicine consultation appointment, which is separate from the 10 or 20 session protocols and can be booked at any time prior to starting the specific protocol. 

Each session includes an acupuncture treatment, for the face, neck or abdomen, a massage specific to the area being treated and lifestyle counselling.

Is everyone a candidate for Cosmetic Acupuncture?

No, not everyone is a candidate for cosmetic acupuncture. The following situations would exclude you from this type of treatment:

Haemophiliac / Seizure disorders / Taking blood thinning drugs / Having a pacemaker / Uncontrolled hypertension / Diabetes / Severe migraines / Former plastic surgery within the past 6 months / Pregnancy / Smoker / Alcoholic / Anyone with a serious medical condition or who has a history of seizures


Maintaining Your Results

Follow-up sessions to maintain your results.  

To maintain the best results possible, after completing the 10 session treatment protocol for the face or neck, it is highly recommended that you have a monthly maintenance Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture appointment.  Minimally you will want to have at least 1 treatment every 3 months.  Or you may choose to do the entire 10 treatment protocol once a year.  It’s a great idea to do this before the winter holiday season and New Year to look your best.


Generally, results will last 3-5 years, after which point a full Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture protocol is strongly suggested. 


Because this remarkable technique is based upon Traditional Chinese Medicine, the underlying philosophy is to treat the whole person, body, mind and spirit. True beauty is more than skin deep and it is crucial to support outward appearance with internal health.
