In the midst of a difficult year, we could all use a dose of relaxation. If you’ve already jumped on the self-care bandwagon, you’ve probably indulged in an at-home spa day or two – you may have even made it a weekly habit! If you’re looking for something new to add to your self-care spa menu, try facial massage.
Facial massage is exactly what it sounds like – a massage focused on the fascia in your face. Like any massage, the primary benefit is that it feels downright fantastic. More than that, however, facial massage can boost circulation, encourage lymphatic drainage, and even provide anti-aging benefits. What’s not to like about all that?
Whether you’re looking for a technique to incorporate into your at-home skincare routine or want to learn more about professional fascial facials, we’ve got the details. Read on to learn more!
If you’ve ever had a professional massage, you can imagine what a facial massage might entail. It’s just like a body massage, only concentrated on your face. More than just running their fingers soothingly over your skin, however, your esthetician will incorporate specific massage techniques such as tapping, pinching, kneading, and stroking the skin. Different techniques provide different benefits such as relieving muscle tension, encouraging lymphatic drainage, and stimulating circulation.
Facial massage can be performed with your fingertips and palms, or you can use a tool such as a jade face roller or a luxurious massage crystal, such as our brand new My Face Massage Crystal. Gua sha, for example, is an ancient Chinese healing technique that involves scraping the skin with a massage tool to boost circulation. The benefit of using a massage tool or device is that you can apply more concentrated pressure in the areas where you need it most – some devices even improve the absorption of skincare products using vibration technology, such as our QYKSONIC Beauty Device.

There’s no denying facial massage is extremely relaxing. More than simply relieving stress, however, facial massage has some serious benefits for your skin. Facial massage is particularly beneficial for anti-aging because it improves circulation which means more oxygen and nutrient-rich blood is flowing to your face. This helps increase collagen production and boosts elasticity in the skin.
Here are some of the proven benefits of facial massage:
