Facial Rejuvenation Program
The upper class of medicines…govern the nourishment of destiny and correspond to heaven… If one wishes to prolong the years of life without aging, one should [use these]. – From the Shen Nong Ben Cao, a classical Chinese text
What is Mei Zen?
Mei Zen means “Beautiful Person,” and it is an East Asian medical treatment system developed by Dr. Martha Lucas; a licensed practitioner of East Asian medicine with a strong background in Western scientific research. Her work has received high notoriety both in the field and with the general public - this protocol was even featured in Oprah Magazine!
This system is a full internal and external treatment which tones and lifts the skin, diminishes wrinkles, reduces puffiness and dark eye circles, and much more by addressing the imbalances in your body that caused them in the first place.
The cost is $1,800 for fifteen treatments: twice a week for five weeks and then once a week for five weeks. After that it is recommended that you return for a maintenance treatment once every 1-3 months.
This cost includes customized nutrition and lifestyle advice specific to your goals and constitution, and all participants receive 10% off any product purchased through us - even if we have to special order it for you. Chinese medicine includes many herbs that are known as “longevity” or “anti-aging herbs” in Asian culture. Adding these to your program will support our efforts both cosmetically and internally, so most participants will be prescribed a combination of these "elixirs of life."
If you're not a current patient, we ask that you come in for a free 20-minute consultation to see if you're a good candidate for the program and to clarify any questions you might have about the procedure.
People who are good candidates for this system have concerns about:
- Lines and wrinkles
- Sagging cheeks, jowls, eyelids, and other areas
- Acne, rosascea, and similar
- Dull, dry, off-color skin
- Age spots
- Sun damage
- Bell’s Palsy or post-stroke paralysis
Does it really work to get rid of my wrinkles/age spots/acne, etc.?
Yes! While specific results are not guaranteed, if you follow through with the program, you will get results - they just might not be the results you expected. We'll do everything possible to help set realistic goals before you commit to the program. That said, most people who go through the whole program are thrilled with their results.
Also remember that this isn’t a one-time miracle treatment (there actually is no such thing). In order to see results that will last, you must commit to the full 15 sessions, and to a regular maintenance schedule; just like any other beauty procedure. The difference is that this protocol includes a whole-body health treatment as well, so you're maintaining your health as well as beauty.
How long will my results last?
Your results should last 3-5 years, with maintenance treatments every 1-3 months. Remember, nothing can permanently reverse aging – we all go through it! – and options like Botox and surgery also require maintenance. Mei Zen cosmetic acupuncture will help you age gracefully and can help mitigate damage done by sun or skin conditions. Since we’ll be treating your whole body (internally as well as externally), you’re also committing to a healthier, more vibrant lifestyle that’s a true investment in your future.
What are the risks?
The greatest risk is potential bruising, although there are ways to prevent and temper that. Otherwise, there are certain risk factors that might prevent you from being a good facial acupuncture candidate (such as hypertension, history of seizure, migraines, and others), but that is what the free consultation is for: finding these potential risks. And don’t worry: if you have any of these conditions, we can start a course of normal treatments to re-balance your body first and then start the Mei Zen protocol when your body is ready.
