A thorough assessment of your current health and/or skin condition as well as your skincare routine. During this visit, we will provide recommendations for diet, skincare products and regimen and discuss your goals and expectations for your treatment. We may also take some photos in order to record your progress.
The first treatment may feel similar to a regular facial. You will feel extremely relaxed (yes, believe it or not, this is true) and you may feel a tightness of the skin during and immediately after the treatment.
After about 5-6 treatments, you may notice softening of fine lines, a slight lift of the face, and increased moisture to the face.
After 10-12 treatments, your skin should look brighter, more toned and plump. You may see leveling of deeper lines, softening of skin, and fading of age spots.
Results vary depending on age, skin type, lifestyle and condition of your skin. Patients of more advanced age or skin condition may need up to 24 treatments for optimal results.
What to expect
A combination of MeiZen Acupuncture Facelift protocol for a boost of collagen and elastin producing an overall lift and localized insertion techniques to target desired areas.
MeiZen Acupuncture Necklift protocol is used to improve the elasticity of the neck muscles and boost collagen formation. This in turn will help minimize the beginning of jowls and give more definition to your jawline.
For patients with active breakouts, we will use acupuncture points on the body to address any internal imbalances. Acupuncture points on the face may or may not be used depending on the nature of the breakout. For optimal results, this must be combined with our customized dietary guidelines and herbal medicine to soothe the inflammation and prevent future breakouts. We also recommend adding LED light facials to destroy acne-causing bacteria on the skin’s surface.
Acu-Balance for Active Acne
For patients with acne scarring, we use facial acupuncture to smooth the overall appearance of skin and use localized insertion on severe scarring to bring more blood flow to the area and promote self-healing.
Acu-Clear for Acne Scarring
Whether it is hormonal imbalance or digestive problems, we aim to get to the root to the problem and harmonize the balance of energy throughout the body. Some patients may need a course of wellness acupuncture prior to starting their facial acupuncture treatments to optimize the results.
Guasha is a traditional healing technique in Chinese medicine. When used on the face, this will help relieve tension in the muscles, boost blood circulation and encourage lymphatic drainage to reduce puffiness and detoxify the face. Our guasha is made out of rose quartz stone which is a crystal of unconditional love. It has a calming and healing effect on the body and is thought to attract love.
Cupping is another Traditional Chinese Medicine technique designed to bring circulation of Qi and blood to the skin and muscles by giving your fascia a good stretch. This can help smooth fine lines, relax tight muscles, move and decrease inflammation and strengthen vascular integrity of the face which will help enhance delivery of nutrients to your skin.
Originally researched and developed by NASA, low-level light therapy is the application of light energy to the body to obtain therapeutic benefits. It produces a natural photobiochemical reaction similar to the process of plant photosynthesis, and has a wide range of beneficial applications including the treatment of acne, wrinkles and pain conditions.
LED Light Facial
I used to think that the aging process could not be stopped. That was until I was introduced to cosmetic acupuncture. Maybe this is too honest for a review, but my vanity and fear of aging had me considering Botox, vampire needling, microneedling, chemical peels, facials, purchasing scrubs, masks, lasers, and a face lift. I am so glad I learned about cosmetic acupuncture. The results are astounding. I have been under Lydia's care for two months now. At the start I was going once a week but have doubled my appointments to two times a week because I am eager to continue the improvements. My skin is noticeably brighter, pores smaller, fine lines minimized, and my unfortunate adult acne flair up that left scars has been fading away.
I sought out Lydia to work on my crow's feet around my eyes and on an old acne scar on my chin. I was so surprised that even after one session I noticed a change. My face had a glow immediately after the treatment, too! Lydia gave valuable facial rejuvenation tips and suggestions like which high quality, clean face products to use and some at-home techniques I can incorporate into my daily regimen. She is extremely knowledgeable about facial rejuvenation and I'm confident she will get me and my face to where I want it to be!
After completing the 10 sessions, I can honestly say I'm completely satisfied with my results. The fine lines a much finer (some completely gone), my pores have reduced in size (big plus!), acne scars greatly reduced, and I've noticed even & glowing skin tone. Interestingly, I've also noticed that my skin feels softer and my face products absorb so much better; I'm normally very dry but products tended to just sit on my skin before. I've had many compliments as well from friends and family remarking I look younger and my skin looks more vibrant.
Now that I've completed the initial 10 sessions, I plan to see Lydia every 1-2 months to maintain my results. I highly recommend you see the very talented and stunning Lydia for your best skin yet. My only regret is not seeing her sooner!
Lydia is so kind and eager to help with any ailments you might have. After seeing Lydia consistently, I started to see improvements in my Psoriasis, back pain, joint pain and my general wellness.
Her new location is small, which makes it very private. I loved the privacy and loved having the ability to lay down on the beds, especially because they are nice and warm.
