Facial Acupuncture

Do you want to look younger and more revitalized? Why not try the Mei Zen cosmetic acupuncture protocols?

Facial acupuncture dives into the underlying causes of skin aging. Stress, diet, lifestyle, smoking and sun damage contribute to skin aging, while Chinese Medicine teaches us that the state of your internal health is reflected by your skin. Although it is our largest organ and our protection from the outside world, our skin is very much affected by our internal health. 

Western surgical procedures, injectable treatments, laser resurfacing and other “non-invasive” procedures do not address why your skin is aging. They are also more expensive than facial acupuncture and are more likely to have dangerous side effects. 

At Life Balance Clinic in Glenview, we use the Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture System. With only superficial needles, this “acu-facial” treatment brings Qi (energy) and blood flow into your face. Acu-facial rejuvenation is able to enhance production of collagen and elastin through harmonizing your energy flow and organ function. 

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) does not leave any stone unturned. Your acu-facial treatment will most likely involve diet and lifestyle advice, as well as skincare. Even the actual facial acupuncture process can extend to other parts of your body, as organ function affects how well-nourished your skin is, and if toxins are cleared away. 

Some of the reported benefits of cosmetic acupuncture are:

  • Significant improvement in the fine lines of the face, and a reduced appearance of deeper wrinkles.
  • Moisturized, softer skin and a more even skin tone due to increased circulation of blood and lymph in the face.
  • Improved muscle tone and firmer jaw line, as well as reduction in jowls.
  • Reduction in facial puffiness, through relief of water retention.
  • Reduce or fully resolve rosacea and acne.
  • As your digestion, endocrine system and stress response affect your skin integrity, facial acupuncture will target these areas if necessary. For this reason, patients report improvement in insomnia, hot flashes, depression, mild anxiety, and digestive symptoms.

Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture may be right for you if you want a more youthful appearance, but don’t want to lose your unique beauty. Be yourself- everyone else is taken!

What our patients say

"I would like to share my positive experience of cosmetic acupuncture with Dr. Vadim Dekhtyar at Life Balance Clinic. I was looking for more natural solutions for my skin because options like Botox or plastic surgery are not for me. I don’t like the idea of inserting chemicals under my skin. It’s why after reviewing a lot of literature and internet sources I decided to try a more suitable for me, less invasive option like face acupuncture. Now I can tell that my choice was right. I am very pleased with the final result. It was a very pleasant experience, I felt comfortable and relaxed during procedures. Cosmetic acupuncture made my face look younger. I can confidently recommend using Dr. Dekhtyar’s services."
