Michelle is trained in the Mei Zen acupuncture facial rejuvenation system, a comprehensive system that addresses facial wrinkles, sagging, discoloration, and dryness. This technique uses small, dermal needles that are very fine and delicate to boost collagen production, lift the skin and muscles, and brighten the complexion.
A typical series is 10 treatments, and this can vary somewhat – shorter or longer in duration depending upon patient. Each treatment will be tailored to the patient and may include one or more of:
- Massage on hands, feet, or neck
- Masking with Chinese herbals
- Facial gua sha
- Use of dermaroller and serum
Using ground Chinese herbals, including Rehmannia Root, Phellodendron, Angelica, and several others, Michelle prepares ointments, and herbal salves and powders, to help heal the deeper layers of the skin. These herbals can penetrate to the dermis and boost white blood cells to an area of damaged skin. Use the contact form to schedule a free consultation by phone or in person to learn more.
Avoid Botox, fillers, and other procedures that can mask expression. These cosmetic procedures can be detrimental to the basal layer of the skin, causing permanent damage and distortion to the facial muscles. Acupuncture can yield long term benefits to the skin by engendering a more youthful and energetic expression to your skin, while also bolstering immune health.
