Our aestheticians at Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery offer the lymphatic facial — a gentle massage that targets the lymph nodes, brings fluids down, and drains toxins.
A Deeper Level: How the Lymphatic Facial Works
The lymphatic system is a very important part of the immune system because it manages the fluid levels in the body. Our lymph nodes drain fluid that has leaked from the blood vessels and direct it back into the bloodstream, as well as removing bodily waste. However, any time there’s a blockage in the lymphatic system, fluid may begin to accumulate and build up, causing puffiness, acne, irritation, and sebum build-up. This is where a lymphatic facial can be very beneficial.
The intricate networks of the body tend to work from the inside out. That’s why a lymphatic facial can have such an incredible impact on the skin. However, the lymphatic system needs to be manually manipulated in order to function at its best (i.e., the facial). When the lymphatic system is too “still”, problems like acne breakouts and puffiness start to show.
