The facial itself feels like your typical face treatment, minus the slathering on and off of numerous masks and serums. Instead, it’s typically done with zero products at all—just the aesthetician’s hands applying strong pressure to your face. The massage component is more intense than your standard facial because the whole point is to stimulate certain lymph points, but it still feels good (believe me).
Beyond a radiant complexion, lymphatic drainage facials act as a face workout: The massage strengthens your facial muscles, boosts oxygen flow, and releases endorphin . “This offsets negative affects of adrenaline, like stress. With pumping lymphs, you’ll look amazing and feel amazing.”
