At PURE Medispa, our talented team of medical estheticians can perform lymphatic drainage facial massages to clients seeking treatment for various facial conditions to help you look and feel your best. 

What is the Lymphatic System?

While facial massages are something we are probably familiar with, the lymphatic system may not be. Our lymphatic system is a part of our immune system and has many functions. These include maintaining fluid levels in our bodies and removing harmful waste and toxins from our bodily tissues. Problems with our lymphatic system may result in bodily swelling, recurring infections, or fluid buildup within the structures of the system.  

What is a Lymphatic Drainage Face Massage? 

A lymphatic drainage massage serves to drain buildup of lymphatic fluid within your face. The gentle, light massage treatment enhances circulation in your face by delivering oxygen around the skin and pushing waste and toxins out of the lymph nodes. Using the pads of their fingers, an esthetician will massage your face in the direction of the lymphatic flow and use circular movements to gently stimulate the lymph vessels below your skin. The application of light, directed pressure serves to clear excess fluid and toxins in your face.   

Benefits of a Lymphatic Drainage Face Massage? 

Lymphatic drainage face massages can benefit people who have specific health conditions relating to their lymphatic system such as lymphedema. Lymphedema occurs when lymph fluid begins to build up in a specific area of the body and causes swelling. However, this treatment option can also benefit people who have swelling in their face, fatigue, stress, migraines, or skin disorders. Here are some ways you can benefit from a lymphatic drainage face massage: 

  • Drains toxins from your skin 
  • Reduces puffiness 
  • Improves circulation 
  • Refines discoloration under the eyes 
  • Manages breakouts 

Should I Receive a Lymphatic Drainage Face Massage? 

While this form of facial rejuvenation can benefit a wide variety of conditions and is generally safe, there are some preexisting health conditions that may require a patient to receive alternative treatment options. If you struggle with any of the following conditions, be sure to consult your healthcare provider prior to receiving a lymphatic drainage face massage: 

  • Congestive heart failure
  • History of blood clots
  • Kidney infections
  • Circulation problems
