How does it work?
The Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture system utilizes an ancient needling technique that is very superficial. The needling brings increased Qi and blood flow to the face and can improve or increase the production of collagen and elastin.  Since this system is based in Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture points on the body are also selected to balance the whole body. 

Mei Zen treatment protocol:
A typical protocol begins with a consultation to determine your overall health and to determine if you are a candidate for this treatment. The consultation is complimentary and takes approximately 15-20 minutes. Individuals who are pregnant, who have been diagnosed with high blood pressure or those who suffer from migraines are not candidates for this treatment. 

If you are a good candidate for this protocol, a treatment plan will be discussed with you.  To obtain best results and ensure optimal production of collagen and elastin, treatments twice a week for five weeks are recommended.  The treatment schedule can be modified to fit into your schedule.
