Act on expression wrinkles thanks to facial stretching

Every normally constituted person ages. That’s a fact.

One of the first areas where you can see this aging is the face. Over time, the skin becomes thinner and the face sags. This results from the slowing down of the cellular system, leading to the fall of hyaluronic acid and the decreased production of elastin and collagen. With age, muscles also change. “They retract, stretch, atrophy and therefore wrinkles appear,” says the expert.

Facial stretching is an effective technique to act on these famous wrinkles. This is a facial massage performed by a professional to take care of your skin and prevent the signs of aging.

“Stretching works the muscle in depth. The objective is to relax muscle tension to soften the features of the face”, explains the specialist. Before adding: “You can’t completely make a wrinkle disappear with facial gymnastics, but you can greatly reduce it.”

Facial massages are indeed true anti-aging allies since they activate micro-circulation and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. This is what gives you that glow after a date.

Is facial stretching painful?

Facial stretching is not painful per se. But the feeling can be more or less unpleasant depending on your sensitivity.

“We catch the muscle in depth to evacuate the tensions. The more tense you are in the face, the more you will feel it. But it’s a bit like when we treat a knot in the back”, specifies Barbara.

The massage lasts between 50 minutes and 1 hour.

How many sessions to see results?

According to the expert, to have optimal results, there are no secrets, you have to be regular.

“The more regular the client is, the more the muscle will react, because the muscle memorizes the movements. Ideally, we recommend 3 or 4 treatments in a row for a month to reactivate the fibroblasts, then 1 per month”, affirms the specialist.
