How effective is a natural facelift massage?

Natural Facelift Massage is an effective, holistic treatment. Unlike a standard facial, it works the face at a much deeper level. It targets stress and tension in muscles, promotes better blood flow and circulation and improves the lymphatic system. The effect is to promote collagen and elastin regrowth, improve skin detoxification and remove line causing tension. Clients report many benefits, including better tone, firmer skin, clearer skin, more lifted skin, tighter jowls, reduced eye bags and dark circles. Clients also report feeling lighter and deeply relaxed and refreshed, and are surprised by how much tension they were carrying in their face without even realising it.

How long do the effects last?

After a single treatment you’ll notice the difference for upto a week. The lift effect will be most noticable for 3-4 days, the brighter skin tone will last longer.

Can I get permanent results with facial massage?

Yes, you can if you have regular treatments. I also recommend that clients follow simple home massage techniques too. A few minutes of simple massage techniques 3-5 times a week makes a big difference.

How often should I have treatments

This depends on what you want to achieve from your facial. Some people are happy with a monthly treatment as a treat and a boost before a special event.

As with most treatments, if you want more pronounced changes we recommend a course of 6 sessions spaced 1-2 weeks apart. After this, you can go to monthly treatments.

Are they suitable for everyone?

All treatments are generally safe and gentle treatments. With all holistic treatments there are some contraindications:

Treatment is not recommended if:

  • You have had botox or dermal fillers in the last 12 weeks
  • You are less than 12 weeks pregnant
  • You are receiving chemotherapy or radiation treatment
  • You have any active skin conditions or infections
  • You don’t feel well on the day

Before each appointment, I will chat through your medical history and any medications you are on and will modify the treatments as needed.

What oils and lotions do you use?

I use grapeseed oil for the facials, which is one of the least allergenic oils. If you are allergic to this, or prefer not to use an oil, you can have a Natural Face Lift Massage or Combined Face & Indian Head Massage without using any oils.

Gua Sha and Cupping facials cannot be carried out without oils.

Some facials include the optional use of cosmeceutical grade Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C serum. The brand we use is Medic8 and the products are suitable for vegans. These are high-quality products and are used to enhance the effects of the facial. If you opt to use these in your treatment, then they are applied at the end of the facial.

Do you do a cleanse first?

These massages are different to a standard facial. They are about the massage techniques. Please come to your facial without wearing makeup to get the most out of the treatment.
