How does lymphatic detoxify facial work?
Reduce Swelling and Puffiness
A lymphatic detoxify facial is a soothing and relaxing massage using gentle but effective brushing motions to reduce swelling in the eye and neck area, as well as the rest of the face. The lymphatic system consists of a large network of lymphatic vessels and lymph nodes throughout the body. Intrinsically linked to your immune system, the lymphatic network aids in the removal of waste products from body tissue.
A lymphatic facial massage can detox your completion, drain fluids and increase circulation. When the lymphatic system has become sluggish or stagnant it is usually do to lack of exercise, poor diet or you have suffered a prolonged illness.
By stimulating the lymph system you move fluid out of your tissues into lymph nodes where bacteria, viruses and other harmful microorganisms are destroyed.
The lymphatic system functions via and is dependent on the pressure of the blood system. Because of this, the efficacy of your lymph nodes in eliminating toxins is dependent on the efficacy of your circulatory system, which can mean a slower-than-desirable detoxification process. This is where physical manipulation of the lymph nodes comes in to help speed up the process.
Boost Immune System
As a beneficial side effect, your immune system is also boosted. Before treatment, some patients may experience impaired lymph drainage, where, for example, flow is obstructed or simply insufficient. When flow is obstructed or too slow, lymphatic fluid (lymph) accumulates in the tissue resulting in swelling in the affected area, and this can irritate the skin. When fluid builds up like this it can cause discomfort, puffiness and a dull complexion.
Reduction of scar tissue
Manual lymphatic massage is believed to help in the reduction of new scar tissue. By actively encouraging increased circulation to the area and clearing any system blockages, fresh blood and oxygen flood the area and support cell regeneration. Many plastic surgery practices have licensed estheticians who specialize in lymphatic massage working with their patients to help support post-treatment healing.
Promotes the feeling of relaxation and wellbeing
As a non-invasive treatment which is both gentle and therapeutic, lymphatic facial massage is extremely relaxing. It promotes feelings of wellbeing while reducing anxiety and stress. Beyond a radiant complexion, lymphatic drainage facials act as a face workout: The massage strengthens your facial muscles, boosts oxygen flow, and releases endorphins. This offsets negative affects of adrenaline, like stress. With pumping lymphs, you’ll look amazing and feel amazing.
