Cosmetic Acupuncture For the face and neck. Spring Creek Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine Christina LaCroix; MAcOM, Lac.
How it works • The Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture system utilizes an ancient needling technique that is very superficial. Our target area is the dermis layer of the skin.
Dermis layer • When we target the dermis layer of the skin we create micro-traumas which brings Qi and increases circulation to the face and thus we can improve and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.
Some Benefits of Facial Acupuncture • Improvement of the fine facial lines and diminishing effect of deeper wrinkles • Moisturized, softer skin and more even skin tone • Improved muscle tone and firmer jaw line, as well as reduction in the beginning of jowls • Reduction or elimination of rosacea and acne • An overall rejuvenating effect of body, mind and spirit.
Traditional Chinese Medicine • As this system is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine, it uses acupuncture point selections on the body to complete the balancing of energy. • We don’t treat the body as pieces of a whole, we treat you as a whole person. • When you come in for Facial Acupuncture we work on your health as well as your appearance. • After all it’s maintenance not vanity!
