Frequently Asked Questions
How long does the process take? The face and neck protocols each require a 5 week commitment with treatments done twice per week. Thus, each protocol requires ten treatments delivered over a five week period. The abdominal protocol is a three month minimum protocol, delivered twice per week for the first six weeks. Then once per week for the next six weeks.
Can all three protocols be done at once? The protocols must be done separately and cannot be alternated.
Do the protocols require maintenance? As with plastic surgery, Botox®, Collagen injections and Restalayne, results are not permanent and so cosmetic acupuncture does require some maintenance. Frequency is reliant upon your health, constitution and lifestyle and your comfort level with your appearance. Some patients choose monthly maintenance, every other month or seasonal treatments to maintain their results. The minimum maintenance is twice per year.
What kind of cosmetic products do you recommend? We recommend Mei Zen cosmetic products, which are bioactive, made with Chinese herbs, botanical extracts and oils. Mei Zen products contain NO parabens, formaldehyde releasers, phthalates, or sodium laurel sulphate. They are small batch artisan products, made with sustainability in mind and have a low carbon footprint.
Will I need to take herbs? Chinese herbs might be recommended for some patients who have an underlying condition that would affect their cosmetic treatment.
What kind of lifestyle recommendations do you make in order to maintain my results? General lifestyle recommendations are made such as avoiding certain foods like cold foods, sugar, and dairy. It is also advised that patients not smoke as this affects the health of the skin.
Does it hurt? You will feel a mild pinch as needles are inserted, usually followed by a feeling of calm or euphoria, which is common to all acupuncture treatments. The treatment ends with the application of Mei Zen cosmetic products and a relaxing face massage.
