Common Questions About Cosmetic Acupuncture

Q: How many cosmetic acupuncture treatments are necessary to see results?

A: The Mei Zen protocol involves two treatments per week for five weeks. You will notice immediate benefits from acupuncture, such as relaxation and improved energy flow. Each treatment focuses on enhancing blood flow and Qi to the facial area, as well as boosting collagen and elastin production, which helps reduce fine lines over time.

Q: How does cosmetic acupuncture differ from Botox?

A: Cosmetic acupuncture is a holistic method without negative side effects. Unlike Botox, which involves injecting substances into your skin, cosmetic acupuncture uses tiny stainless steel needles. There is no muscle atrophy or risk of nerve damage. This approach is subtle, long-lasting, and promotes overall well-being. If you seek drastic and immediate results, cosmetic acupuncture might not be the best choice for you.

Q: Are acupuncture treatments painful?

A: This is a common concern, but generally, acupuncture does not hurt. Here's why:

  • Very Thin Needles: Acupuncture needles are much thinner than those used for injections or blood draws, about the width of a human hair.

  • Shallow Insertion: The needles are inserted just shallowly enough to stimulate acupuncture points, collagen, and elastin.

  • Skillful Practitioners: Experienced acupuncturists perform the process gently and precisely. Most people feel minimal to no discomfort, often experiencing just a slight pinch or tingling sensation that is brief.

Acupuncture is intended to be a relaxing and therapeutic experience. Many patients find the sessions so calming that they fall asleep during treatment. If you have any concerns, your acupuncturist will be happy to address them to ensure your comfort.

Q: Are skincare products used during treatments?

A: Yes. We use all-natural products, including a toner and hyaluronic acid anti-aging or brightening serums, to enhance the results and leave your skin glowing after treatment.

Q: How long do the treatments last, and will I need maintenance?

A: It is generally recommended to have monthly maintenance treatments starting around 2-3 months after completing the initial protocol to continue seeing progress and maintain your healthy glow.

Q: Are there any contraindications for cosmetic acupuncture?

A: Cosmetic acupuncture is not recommended for individuals on blood-thinning medications, those who are pregnant, in very poor health, have unmanaged high blood pressure, or have received Botox within the last 3-6 months. For these cases, traditional acupuncture treatment sessions might be a better option to start with.
