Facial Massage: An Ounce Of Prevention Is Worth A Pound Of Cure

One of the most beneficial components of a facial is the massage. Facial and neck massage restore the skin’s radiance and prevent wrinkles by toning the muscles and firming the skin. Results that can be achieved are contouring of the cheeks, minimizing of smile and laugh lines, and a more defined jaw-line, to name a few.

When we age, it’s a slowing in the circulation of nutrient-rich blood and detoxifying lymph and increasingly sluggish skin-cell turnover. A facial massage enhances blood and lymph circulation, which improves the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to the cells. This maximizes the health condition of the cells and in turn keeps your complexion’s tissues in constant repair.

Face massage is a healthy, and less expensive, alternative to invasive treatments like Botox (facial paralyzer). When Botox is used for long periods of time without a break, facial muscles may waste away as a result of the degeneration of cells. When the skin is massaged properly, we release tension, blockages in the muscles, skin, and fascia.

Facial massage, like any other toning exercise, needs to be performed regularly for it to be effective. From age prevention to age correction, this technique is used in every Yonka facial we offer here at Harbour Club!
