What is Mei Zen cosmetic acupuncture? In Mei Zen cosmetic acupuncture, ultra-fine needles are inserted into the face, head and neck to stimulate blood flow and collagen production. There is little, if any, discomfort or pain. Needles are also placed in other parts of the body (usually the arms and legs) to address any underlying imbalances. The needles stay in for 30 minutes then your acupuncturist will use various techniques to further stimulate facial muscles such as facial gua sha and/or facial cupping. Cosmetic acupuncture is done in 10 sessions twice a week for 5 weeks for the best results but can be done once a week if needed. Follow-up sessions are recommended monthly to maintain progress. How does Mei Zen cosmetic acupuncture work? Cosmetic acupuncture can stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, tone facial muscles and improve blood flow, all without the risks or downtime of surgery or injections.
