Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture

Facial Acupuncture for Wrinkles (in a Nutshell)…

How Acupuncture Treats Wrinkles

-Wrinkles form when collagen becomes weakened in the skin’s dermis layer and eventually folds over on itself

(like a piece of paper folded too many times makes a sharp crease).


-Many tiny Acupuncture needles are inserted into the face. These create minor micro injuries to the targeted (wrinkle) area.


-These micro injuries stimulate the body to build collagen in the area, repairing the dermis in a sort of defense mechanism, resulting in improved elasticity with smoother, more toned skin overall.


It is similar to how muscle fibers break down with tiny tears after lifting weights.

The repairing process takes place afterwards, especially during sleep as the muscle fibers build back up in strength. 

Pretty cool, huh?



Collagen Production 

Facial Acupuncture prompts the body to build collagen in the face.

This improves elasticity and decreases appearance of fine lines and wrinkles,

such as crow’s feet around the eyes and smile lines “parentheses” lines also known as nasolabial fold (Latin for nose-lip fold),

marionette lines (lines that extend down from the mouth to the jaw), and forehead wrinkles.


Aleesha D Acupuncture uses the Mei Zen protocol in which more than 50 very tiny needles are inserted into the face. This protocol also treats the entire body. Needles are added in the hands and feet, legs and arms to treat the whole individual as she presents. So, digestion, energy, sleep, hormonal support and more can be treated at the same time!

Aleesha Ackerman, LAc treats fine facial wrinkles using the famous cosmetic acupuncture protocol of Mei Zen.

This protocol is also known as My Zen. This cosmetic facial acupuncture protocol is the only protocol that uses more than fifty needles inserted into the face with acupuncture needles inserted elsewhere in the body. Not to worry-these needles are tiny!

This cosmetic facial treatment that treats the entire body, not just the face.

So, we are addressing other systems in the body simultaneously as needed. Digestion for instance, may need some care shown to it during the treatment. This protocol treats your face and your body…It truly is a two-for-one acupuncture treatment!
