The benefits of facial massage

Facial massages are treatments that you can perform with a masseur or doctor. The technique involves stimulating pressure points on the face, neck and shoulders.

You can use lotions, oils, or cleansing lotions to massage your face, as well as a face roller or flat gua sha tool.

Facial massage helps maintain healthy skin while relaxing facial muscles. It has a relaxing and rejuvenating effect, improving the appearance and well-being.

Whether you want a facial massage solely for relaxation or to treat a specific condition, there are many techniques to try.

Alleged benefits

Read on to find out what some of the research and anecdotal evidence says about the benefits of facial massage.

1. Anti-aging and wrinkles

One of the main benefits of facial massage is its ability to improve the overall appearance of the skin.

A small 2017 Trusted Source study examined the effectiveness of a facial massage that included a stimulating massage device. Participants used an anti-aging device and face and neck cream for 8 weeks. The effects of the cream have been enhanced in combination with facial massage. Improvements were seen in wrinkles, skin sagging and texture. We offer many types of massage in our salon Najlepszy Masaż on Żoliborzu.

2. Sinus pressure

Unless it is an infectious case or in the acute stage of sinusitis, you can use massage to relieve sinus pressure, discomfort, and congestion.

Sinus massage can also help drain mucus, relieve headaches, and improve circulation. More in-depth scientific research is needed to confirm and expand the effects of sinus pressure massage.

3. Acne

Stimulating the skin through massage can help improve blood circulation and reduce the appearance of acne. The specific research that provides evidence for facial massage for treating acne is limited.

Some people swear by doing an olive oil massage to treat acne. Results vary, so if this is something you want to try, test it on a small area before massaging your entire face.

Don't be too aggressive in your approach. Avoid harsh movements or exfoliation, especially in sensitive areas. Familiarize yourself with the indications and contraindications for facial massage.

4. TMJ

People with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders may experience discomfort in the jaw or face. This may include a headache, earache or trismus.

Trigger point massage can help relieve tight, inflamed or painful jaw muscles. This discomfort can be caused by chewing, jaw clenching or teeth grinding.

Massage to relieve TMJ symptoms can be especially effective when combined with jaw exercises.

5. Glowing skin

A facial massage may be just the ticket if you want clear, glowing skin. A 2002 study found that 59 percent of women who had a facial massage reported feeling fresh and rejuvenated.

About 54 percent reported firm skin and 50 percent experienced skin tightening. Plenty of anecdotal evidence suggests that facial muscle stimulation can help tighten skin, relieve muscle tension, and improve circulation.

6. Blood flow through the skin

The use of a facial massage roller positively affects the blood supply to the skin, which can contribute to improving the appearance of the skin.
According to a small 2018 study, people who had a 5-minute facial with a massage roller increased blood flow to the area for at least 10 minutes after the massage. After 5 weeks of massage, the response of blood flow to heat improved significantly.

7. Facial rejuvenation

Facial massages can help relieve tension while promoting relaxation and skin health.
A 2018 study points to the effectiveness of facial massage in encouraging facial rejuvenation. You can book a facial massage through our website at BOOKSY.

8. Manage scar tissue

If you have a scar on your face that is in the process of healing, massage can be very beneficial. Massaging the scar and surrounding areas can help increase blood flow, loosen nearby tissues, and flatten lumps.

Facial massage can also help relieve symptoms such as pain, itching, and tenderness. Researchers in 2014 found that massage therapy was effective in reducing skin pain and itching while improving the appearance of raised burn scars.
