F.A.Q.

Q. What can I expect from Cosmetic (Mei Zen style) Acupuncture?

Cosmetic Acupuncture may erase as many as 5-10 years from the face. Results can last from 3 to 5 years.

An acupuncture facelift is not only an effective wrinkle treatment; it also improves the tone and complexion of the skin. It will even out skin tone and tighten pores.

Dry skin? Acne? Improved circulation from this anti-aging procedure corrects and balances these problems.

You can expect to experience a deep relaxation and a sense of well-being after the very first treatment.

The results of cosmetic acupuncture reflect not only a change in external appearance, but also an improvement in total body wellness and slow down the aging process.

Q. Does Cosmetic Acupuncture Hurt?

Cosmetic acupuncture does not hurt. Acupuncture needles are hair-thin (1/10 the thickness of a hypodermic needle), flexible wires that come wrapped in sterile packaging. They are used only once, and then disposed of in a sealed container.

Acupuncture will not cause any lasting side effects. At worst, you may get a small bruise where a needle was inserted, but it will clear up in a matter of a day or two.

Q. Why should I choose Cosmetic Acupuncture over Facial Filler or Cosmetic Surgery?

While not a replacement for surgery, Cosmetic Acupuncture is an excellent alternative and an intelligent choice because:

  • Cost effective
  • Painless.
  • It is safer and has no side effects or risks of disfigurement, unlike surgery or facial fillers.

Due to Cosmetic Acupuncture increasing popularity some clients reconsider their surgical options.

Cosmetic Acupuncture can enhance and prolong the effects of their past surgical procedures.
