Can Acupuncture make you more beautiful?

by Heather Schuerlein, L.Ac, Dipl.OM

Chemicals and lasers and botox oh my! These days, anti-aging and beautifying treatment trends are becoming more and more accessible, but they are not necessarily healthier for us. Many of these extreme treatments can damage the skin in the long run, or leave you with side effects like burning or sensitivity. Natural products are widely available as well, but it can be difficult to know what really works.

Fortunately, there is a trusted and effective natural solution. Cosmetic acupuncture has been used for centuries, but has become more popular in recent times as celebrities have flaunted their acu-facials to the masses. Cosmetic acupuncture, and the system called Mei Zen in particular, is a safe, holistic, and effective treatment plan to help both women and men feel more confident all while improving their health at the same time. No recovery time, no risk of disfigurement or adverse reactions, and no chemicals!


What is Mei Zen?

“Mei Zen” means “beautiful person” and its goal is just that - to help bring out the inner beauty of each person without the use of harmful chemicals or surgery. This system was developed by an expert practitioner, Dr. Martha Lucas, and has been taught all over the US and the world.

Heather Schuerlein, our resident Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture specialist, has completed the full training in the face and neck protocols. She has used Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture to help her patients at ADK Wellness Group to regain their youth and fell like their best selves. Diet and Lifestyle choices are also addressed to help the skin achieve radiance.

Mei Zen uses tiny, hair-thin needles on the face and body for a comprehensive anti-aging treatment. These small needles will bring a rush of circulation to problem areas such as crows feet, forehead, or jowls, and stimulate the body to produce collagen and elastin. This will fill in fine lines and provide the skin with increased nourishment. The face begins to look and feel fuller, more hydrated, bouncier, and all around healthier.


Holistic Approach

Not only does Mei Zen target these problem areas or specific areas with wrinkles or sagging skin, but it treats the whole body. During a Mei Zen treatment, you will receive acupuncture that also helps you to improve your energy, blood flow, reduce stress, and improve other unique issues that you may be working with.

When we are healthy on the inside, our outsides will prove it with a glowing appearance. The body uses the skin to alert us to imbalances happening inside. We can see from the state of our skin if we are suffering from inflammation or lack of nourishment. Mei Zen rebalances these underlying issues that lead to aging or dermatological issues. By taking the time to address our internal health, we are not only improving our appearance, but creating holistic and authentic radiance.


Cosmetic Benefits of Mei Zen

Mei Zen can be used for a wide range of cosmetic complaints as the overall effect is hydrating, toning, firming, and nourishing. Here are a few of the main benefits:


Improvement in tone and texture of the skin, by building collagen and elastin
Reduction of acne and breakouts
Looking and feeling younger
Reduction of discoloration, age spots, rosacea
Overall sense of well-being, reduced stress


Ready for Mei Zen?

The benefits of Mei Zen are for anyone who wishes to look and feel their best. The best results are seen with a series of 10-12 treatments, with 2-3 treatments per week. Changes can be seen even after the first session, but consistency pays the best rewards! Deep lines and wrinkles will take longer, and patients with a more complicated health history may need longer treatment. Tune-ups every 3-4 months will keep your natural (and real!) results looking fresh for years.


Beauty From the Inside Out

The Mei Zen system is the most comprehensive, reliable plan to help you reveal your body’s true inner beauty. While other products might focus on the specifics of aging by targeting wrinkles, fine lines, dropping, or poor skin quality, Mei Zen focuses on treating the root of the issue. A Mei Zen treatment will not only boost the skin’s quality and help to prevent wrinkles. It will heal the body from the inside out and promote a truly healthy appearance. Let your best self shine through!
