As time passes, your lifestyle and personal experiences, both good and bad, can start to show on your face. Every laugh and frown that you express begins to leave its cruel imprint in the form of tiny lines around your mouth and eyes. Combine this to the effect of sunshine, traffic pollution, excessive late nights, the strains of modern life and all the other abuses you have subjected your body to and, before you know it, you're starting to look older than your years. The good news is..it doesn't have to be this way!
Facial rejuvenation is a non-invasive natural facelift attained through gentle massage techniques, lymphatic drainage and acupressure, offering the face a whole new lease of life. The results are immediate and half way through the treatment you will be handed a mirror so that you may compare the stimulated side of the face to the untreated side.
How Facial Rejuvenation works:
Most of the skin is made up of connective tissue, which is formed from fibres such as collagen and elastin. These fibres weave together to form a flexible web-like structure. In younger skins, these fibres slide past each other freely, giving suppleness and flexibility. Over time, the fibres lock together, so that skin loses much of its mobility. Facial rejuvenation restores skin suppleness by toning collagen and elastin fibres, gently allowing the connective tissue to regain its freedom and elasticity.
Even the lightest of touches are registered by the brain and have a direct and immediate influence on your state of mind and emotions. Our nervous system allows us to appreciate and react appropriately to our environment. It also regulates the activities of the bodily systems, inducing relaxation and positive emotions, and has a balancing effect of body functions.
Facial rejuvenation helps to relax and tone facial muscles. Muscular tension can restrict the blood vessels and restrict the flow of blood and lymph to tissues, so reducing the amount of nutrients and oxygen the skin receives and preventing the remove of waste products. Massage reduces muscle tension, thus improves blood flow and lymph.
Facial rejuvenation promotes the circulation of blood; this increases the elimination of waste products, promotes the supply of nutrients to cells, increases the oxygen supply to tissues and lowers blood pressure.
Facial rejuvenation involves the application of pressure on certain points to boost lymph draining. The build up of toxins can be seen on the face, leaving it looking 'saggy', dull, grey and puffy. Many lymph vessels are close to the ski surface so just a little effort has a major impact.
