This is one of the most common questions I get from new massage clients. There…
If you really think about it, we use our facial muscles throughout the entire day to communicate with one another; this high volume of facial movement causes the skin and muscles to lose their integrity. The face is also one of the most exposed parts of our body, leaving it vulnerable to toxins in the air that can build up over time causing wrinkles and poor circulation.
Benefits of the Facelift Massage
As with a regular back massage, a facelift massage can improve circulation and promote the regeneration of cells. Improved circulation promotes the oxygenation of facial muscles, tissues, and blood. This oxygenation enriches the vitality of facial skin giving the face a more youthful appearance.
Reduce the Appearance of Wrinkles and Tighten Skin
Facelift massage is a great alternative to injectables and invasive procedures for wrinkle reduction. Regular exercise is suggested to keep muscles in the body tight and taut. This is also the case for the facial muscles. Regular facial massage can help keep the muscles in your face tight and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

- Improved cosmetic appearance for individuals with Bells Palsy
Areas of the Face that the Facelift Massage Targets
As we age, circulation and cell regeneration slows in the face. This can cause certain muscles in the face to lose their elasticity; skin begins to sag and wrinkles begin to appear. A facelift massage helps counteract the effects of aging creating a more youthful appearance without invasive procedures or expensive creams.
This type of massage also provides fluid release through lymph nodes that can help relieve pain from tension headaches and sinus congestion. If you are experiencing sinus congestion, you can schedule your massage appointment as soon as you are available and experience relief very quickly.
Below you can see what areas of the face are targeted during a facelift massage.
I highly suggest finding time to schedule a facelift massage so you can see the benefits for yourself. You will see results after your first session, but for best results schedule one appointment a week over a six week period. Your facial muscles deserve the same treatment as those in your neck, shoulders, and back.
