Massage Facials

Get in a Better Mood

Facial massage decreases anxiety and can improve a negative mood, according to a study conducted by the User Science Institute. Psychological tests administered after 45 minutes of facial massage showed significant improvements in both mood and anxiety levels, according to the 2008 study. A relaxing facial massage may be just what you need to reduce stress.

Prevent Wrinkles

Daily stress often results in tension buildup in the muscles. Foreheads furrow and lines form between the brows and along the lip line. Gentle, routine facial massage can help relax these tight and drawn muscles, decreasing the lines that they form. Massage combined with a hydrating moisturizer can also help minimize lines and dryness.

Detoxify the Body

Massaging the face stimulates the lymphatic vessels and facilitates toxin elimination from the facial area. The lymphatic system plays a key role in health. Lymph is a clear fluid that removes toxins from the body. It's filtered through the lymph nodes and moves into the bloodstream, where toxins can be eliminated. Muscle movement is needed to push lymph fluid through the body. A lack of movement can result in a sluggish lymphatic system and a buildup of toxins. Many lymph nodes are scattered throughout the facial area, especially along the edge of chin and jawline.

Perfectio Wand

Red and Infrared Light Therapy

The end of the Perfectio Zero Gravity wand features 25 red and infrared LED lights, which function at wavelengths ranging from 640 to 840nm. In this range, the gently pulsing lights capably penetrate deeply through the dermis, the epidermis and the hypodermis layers of the skin without emitting harmful UVA or UVB rays or heat.

The lights stimulate arteries in the direct area to release nitric oxide gas, which alerts vessels to dilate. With blood flow increased, cells and connective tissue receive more vital nutrients. Collagen, elastin and new skin cells are repaired or replaced thanks to the abundance of nutrition.
