Can Facial Massage Really Be Anti-Aging?

Can Facial Massage Really Be Anti-Aging?

YES! If it’s a facial contouring massage…drum roll please…with Microcurrent.

First, here’s the science (which is what separates REAL beauty experts from the FAKE ones). The face has two layers of fascia. In the face, the most superficial layer controls minute facial contractions or movements. The deeper layer connects the skin to muscle and fat and forms the “girdle” of facial muscles called the SMAS by surgeons.

 

 

 

 

If this fascia is restricted, it will hold deeper facial wrinkles “in place” until released. Plus, fascia constricts in many different directions and can be restricted by repetitive facial movements, surgery, scars, injections, implants, fillers and other facial procedures. And thereby, blocking optimum lymph flow (waste removal/detoxification) and blood circulation in the skin. Also, just like in the body, our face can get knots from overworked muscles (think about your shoulders and neck) from looking down at the computer, phone or tablet, for example) the same occurs in the face.

The CORRECT facial massage, one that releases fascia AND deep tension in the face will increase blood flow and lymphatic drainage from the face. A normal massage won’t do the same thing because it takes a certain touch to release fascia. It is very gentle. The practitioner needs to understand the anatomy of the face and be able to feel the release. If you go too deep too soon, less lasting benefits happen. When you release the fascia first then go deeper, anti-aging magic happens and the results stay longer. Think of the last deep tissue massage you had. It was great but you needed another one two days later, right? Why? They didn’t release the fascia and the tight fascia moved the muscles right back into (the tight) place. The fascia controls the muscle and NOT the other way around.

Add microcurrent facial toning and it is one of the best, most nurturing age management treatments you can get for yourself.

Oh No! Am I Too Late to Start an Anti-Aging Routine?

You are not alone! BUT - are you too late?
