Lymphatic Drainage Facial

Understanding the Basics for Esthetic, Cosmetic, Oncology and Medical Purposes

The lymphatic system is partly responsible for removing excess fluid from human tissue to relieve swelling. It collects the excess fluid that the body’s cardiovascular veins cannot collect and leaves behind. As such, swelling is a normal result when the lymphatic system is damaged or when human tissue is traumatized.

HOW LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE WORKS

Lymphatic drainage primarily uses human touch over the epidermis to help relieve swelling. Drainage is achieved through specialized strokes and techniques that are applied in a specific order with professional training. In a lymphatic facial session, the practitioner uses their finger pads to apply these very fine movements around the collarbone, jawbone, through the neck, around the ears, and over the entire face during the service. Most lymphatic facial appointments can be completed within about 30 to 60 minutes.

There are other cosmetic bonuses to a lymphatic facial. It can temporarily reduce dark under-eye circles and relieve sinus pressure.
