Today, we wanted to outline why facial rejuvenation is more than just skin-deep… and how the facial rejuvenation treatment method offered at Pure Body Health Victoria has more overlap with acupuncture than you may think!
The Mei Zen Technique for Facial Rejuvenation
Defined as any treatment that rejuvenates the feel and appearance of the facial region, the term “facial rejuvenation” often calls to mind procedures like Botox, microneedling, or laser therapy.
While these treatments do fall under the umbrella of facial rejuvenation treatments, Pure Body Health Victoria promotes a more holistic form of the skin rejuvenation facial: the Mei Zen technique.
A component of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Mei Zen is a form of cosmetic acupuncture that translates literally to “beautiful person”. It utilizes an ancient needling technique that gently breaches the topmost layer of skin to bring forth increased qi (one’s life force) and blood to the face which can improve the skin’s natural ability to produce collagen and elastin… both essential for fighting the visible signs of aging!
Like regular acupuncture, your assigned Pure Body Health Victoria therapist will select the acupuncture points on your face based on the best areas to address your specific skin and energy imbalances.
This facial rejuvenation treatment is divided into three portions: the “root” treatment, which holistically removes energy blockages to improve the circulation of qi throughout the body; and the “constitutional” treatment, which targets digestive concerns, hormonal imbalances, and emotional stress, all of which are reflected in the skin’s complexion; and the “local” treatment, which works to increase the circulation of blood and aid in lymphatic drainage in the facial region.
The Mental, Emotional, and Physical Benefits of Choosing Mei Zen as Your Facial Rejuvenation Treatment
Cosmetic acupuncture has been proven to have myriad mental, emotional, and physical benefits. These include:
- Aiding in relaxation and the reduction of anxiety or depression symptoms
- Scientifically-proven boosted skin elasticity, improved skin texture, a reduction in fine lines, and an overall fresher-looking complexion
- Boosted energy year-round when receiving consistent treatments (recommended treatment frequency: two per week)
With results visible after just one treatment (and progressively more so after 6-7), the Pure Body Health Victoria team recommends Mei Zen as your skin rejuvenation facial of choice if you are seeking for a non-invasive alternative to traditional treatments that also target mental and emotional health.
