Cosmetic Acupuncture

Benefits of Cosmetic Acupuncture / Meizen

Cosmetic Acupuncture is your healthy option for looking and feeling younger.

Cosmetic Acupuncture is the only whole health option for cosmetic improvements currently available to women and men. It is the “true anti-aging medicine”. Though the procedure is not well known or publicized in the United States, it has been used for centuries in China by Emperors and the wealthy.

With so many books and magazines focused on the aging of America and the extent to which people will go to avoid aging now, more than ever, Americans are turning to acupuncture instead of the scalpel for their face lifting and wrinkle reduction. The Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture procedure provides you with a natural way to look younger, be healthier, and get in touch with your innate beauty.

Part of the beauty of Cosmetic Acupuncture is that it treats aging from the inside and the outside. Treating “from the inside” means that the practitioner uses acupuncture and perhaps Chinese herbs to reduce the imbalances in your system that might be causing premature aging.

What Cosmetic Acupuncture does to your face and neck:

  • Erasing of fine lines with reduction of larger wrinkles on the face.
  • Reduction and elimination of puffiness and bags beneath the eyes and around the face.
  • Lifting of drooping eyelids, and reduction of sagging jowls, or double chin.
  • Improves facial muscle tone, elasticity, and dermal contraction.
  • Increases circulation to the face resulting in improved facial color and radiance, while reducing the appearance of discolorations (age spots, acne, rosacea, etc.) and dryness.
  • Increases “Collagen” production throughout the face, and tightens the pores.
  • Tone your abdomen, lose weight with Abdominal Meizen!
  • Reduction of stress and aging that is evident in the face.
  • Whole body revitalization.

Take advantage of this natural anti-aging treatment and feel free to call if you have any questions.  Cosmetic acupuncture reinvigorates your circulation giving you that natural glow, evens out skin tone and discolorations, tightens the skin to yield a supple natural look, softens or gets rid of wrinkles, and most importantly treats you as a whole.  Thus, you are treated for your core constitution, which supports your overall health and beauty, and provides a natural anti-aging solution.

How long does it take?

A typical course of treatment consists of Eighteen (18) to twenty (20) consecutive sessions.  Sessions are 1 1/2 hours long and administered twice a week for the 1st 6 weeks and once per week for the last 6 weeks. You must commit to consecutive treatments (3 months total) to get the results you desire and get the long lasting effects that you desire.

We also offer our Neck and Face combo, which will last between 1 ½ hours or 2 hours depending on your skin.  We assess the proper treatment length on the 1st appointment.

Following this course of treatment, monthly or seasonal sessions are recommended for maintenance. Results can last from 2 to 5 years especially when you receive maintenance treatments periodically.

As always, each individual responds uniquely and the number of sessions and results may vary, but many individuals report noticeable improvements after only a few sessions.

Owing to each person’s uniqueness, a package/series of treatments is the most beneficial in making sure that results are achieved. While some people may notice positive changes in 1-2 treatments, some may not until the 4th or 5th treatment.  Only getting 1-2 treatments may not be enough to begin the reversal of the signs of age.

Furthermore, a study in the 1996 International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that 90 of the 300 cases treated with facial acupuncture had marked beneficial results with only one course of treatment.

These effects included the diminishing of wrinkles, improved facial muscle elasticity and overall rejuvenation.

Certainly, this method is not a replacement for surgery, as acupuncture cannot reshape a nose or chin, yet it can take five to ten years off your face through a safe and less costly alternative without the risks and side-effects that are involved with more invasive treatments.

Beauty From Within It is said in Chinese Medicine that "anything in the interior will be reflected on the exterior" and, indeed, the skin reflects and reacts to your entire being—physical, emotional and spiritual. Furthermore, as we mature and experience the stresses of our daily lives, the blood and energy circulation of the skin and underlying facial muscles slowly begins to decrease, resulting in a loss of support, elasticity, nourishment and moisture. Thus, Cosmetic Acupuncture is performed by precisely inserting hair-fine, sterile, disposable acupuncture needles into areas of the face and body to stimulate blood flow and collagen production to the face, while balancing the whole body. The overall result transforms your skin, yielding a smoother, more radiant appearance, while gently revealing its natural beauty.

What our Patients are Saying

  • Pamela Reynolds
    I am a true follower of acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, as this holistic medicine has healed many different ailments in my life, from sciatica pain, to high cholesterol, indigestion, digestive difficulties like feeling bloated, gas, constipation & also had hot flashes, flaccid muscles all over my body, seasonal allergies & a post skin cancer scar on my forehead which caused a lot pain and sadness every time I looked at it. I have been a patient of Angela Soto for well over a year now. I came to her expertise three months after cancer surgery. Upon my first visit she showed how obviously devoted to her patients she is, she spent a lot of time educating me about the treatment plan, the condition of my body at the time and other things like diet all of these which were necessary to achieve balance and health again. Angela’ s extensive education in Chinese medicine and herbs have been a large part of my healing, I can happily say that my health is back to optimum! I asked her to treat my scar that was left on my forehead after the removal of the tumor. The scar was huge and thick, it made me feel self-conscious, sad and depressed to have the reminder not only of the cancer but to see my face partially deformed by it. The acupuncture performed by Angela has come to a level of miraculous healing that I, my Oncologist and my Plastic Surgeon never did imagine it could be possible. The scar is now small, flat and you can barely see it. What an amazing feeling! It helped me move on from the past and happily living today! After my body was feeling so much better, I decided to get “Cosmetic Acupuncture” What Dr. Soto has performed on my face and neck is amazing! After the surgery that I had on my face from the cancer tumor, the scar caused a lot pressure to my eye and left side of the face, that caused severe wrinkles, eye droopiness, with loose skin, and even discoloration. The cosmetic acupuncture has lifted my face back and removed the large wrinkles and reduced the small lines throughout my face and neck area. Even returned the muscles to my face!!! My face tight, my skin looks healthy and most of my lines are gone! I so love all that Dr. Soto has done for me, my health and my youthful beauty are both restored! I now walk with confidence. I highly recommend Angela Soto and Blue Root acupuncture’s staff for all of the healing and care anyone may need. I wish you all loving healing and the enjoyment of experiencing Dr. Soto’s devotion and healing abilities.   Thank you, Pamela Reynolds

    “I’ve been coming to see Angela Soto (AP, Dipl. O.M.) to get done my first face lift/rejuvenation procedure. Since, my skin has improved a lot, a lot of my skin stains have clarified, the age lines and wrinkles have gotten softer, the puffiness under my eyes have almost faded completely. More importantly, I feel a wonderful sense of calm well-being. My energy level has gotten better and after each treatment the daily stress disappears. I feel and look fresh and younger! I highly recommend this procedure for an overall life lift! Thank you Angela!”
