Denver Cosmetic Acupuncture expert explains new Mei Zen facial procedure.
Cosmetic Acupuncture: it's in the news more and more often as people are looking for healthful alternatives when it comes to cosmetic procedures. "People want to look young but not take the risks that come with procedures like plastic surgery, chemical peels, or some of the injectables that are available. There's no need to take risks when you have the Traditional Chinese Medicine alternative, Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture" says Denver Practitioner of Chinese Medicine Martha Lucas, Ph.D., L.Ac.
Lucas was recently interviewed by Cosmetic Surgery Times to talk about Cosmetic Acupuncture and her comments are published in the June 2007 issue. "Mei Zen means 'beautiful person' and that is what
Traditional Chinese Medicine is all about - treating the whole person. The Mei Zen Cosmetic procedure is based on Chinese Medicine, so your whole health is addressed as you are receiving cosmetic results" says Lucas.
The Cosmetic Acupuncture Focus:
reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
leveling of deeper wrinkles
a more balanced, vibrant complextion
reduction of acne or rosacea
lifting of the beginnings of jowls
more elasticity in your skin
Additional health benefits can include:
reduction in hot flashes
reduction in mild anxiety or depression
better digestion (which is very important for lustrous skin)
more restful sleep, reduction in insomnia -- plus more!
Lucas says that she is "always amazed at what people are willing to do to their faces in the name of youth especially when there's no need to take the substantial risks that people do. Traditional Chinese Medicine is the true anti-aging medicine - it is based on prevention. It's based on preserving a youthful appearance at all ages. Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture is therefore perfect for those in their thirties who want to preserve their youthful appearance and for women and men over 40 because it can reduce wrinkling, firm the skin, improve the jawline etc. by improving the skins' health and elasticity as well as the state of general health. Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture revitalizes from the inside out. It's a gift to your body rather than an assault on it."
