Lymphatic Therapy Treatment FAQ
Lymphatic Therapy is tightening mask designed to work with your circulatory system - an often overlooked, but vital component of optimal skin health. This organ system is responsible for removing waste via our lymphatics, and nourishing our cells and tissues via our blood supply.
These systems work together, taking and giving, maintaining homeostasis.
The circulatory system plays a key role in a holistic approach to skin health.
When our blood circulates around our body it provides nutrients (such as amino acids), water and oxygen to our cells and tissues. However during the capillary fluid exchange (where water, amino acids, and oxygen cross the capillary wall into the extracellular fluid), fluids don't travel very far into the surrounding tissue, and even less when there are roadblocks. Which is why there needs to be a "clear road", free from debris, so that these nutrients can get to their target. This is why lymphatic drainage is important to the health of your skin.
Lymphatic therapy works by applying transient pressure to the skin to assist with activating these processes, creating a clean environment for cells to flourish in and freeing the cells fresh oxygenated and nutrient rich blood.
Lymphatic Therapy is indicated for maintaining skin health, as part of a skin health pathway, or as pre and post support to advanced skin rejuvenation - creating a healthy responsive skin, and assisting with healing and recovery.
