THE SCIENCE BEHIND NATURAL FACE SCULPTING
Although your face is made of skin and bones and muscles, the latter has been virtually ignored by beauty enthusiasts and brands alike for decades. There is an endless lineup of skincare products that promise to banish fine lines, uneven skin tone, and acne scars but how many of them really deliver? And why don’t any of them address the importance of facial muscle tone? Giving the muscles in your face a workout doesn’t just feel good, it also helps firm collagen and elastin, enhance circulation, and assist lymphatic drainage. Feeling a little skeptical about how a natural and noninvasive procedure can actually make you look and feel younger? Keep reading! We’re breaking down the science behind Löschn’s Face Sculpting treatments.
HOW IT WORKS
As we age, our skin loses elasticity and the pads of fat between our muscles and skin become thinner, which is what causes sagging and wrinkles. By utilizing instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization, or IASTM for short, Löschn therapists are able to locate tightness, scar tissue, and past injuries to treat your facial muscles with the appropriate amount of pressure. Not only does this increase blood circulation to your face , which allows for more oxygen and nourishment to reach your skin cells, but it strengthens your muscles. Stronger muscles compensate for thinning fat and gives our faces a fuller, more youthful appearance.
By firming your muscles, facial sculpting also boosts your body’s lymphatic system. The lymphatic system has three main roles — the first being to maintain the balance of fluid between your blood and tissues. This is known as fluid homeostasis and it is very important in maintaining your overall health. Too much fluid can lead to lymphedema which basically means you are holding on to a lot of excess fluid. Poor posture, diets, and low activity levels can lead to a clogged lymphatic system but many mistake this puffiness and bloating for fat. By guiding fluid away from the face, Löschn’s natural face sculpting results in sharper cheekbones, a chiselled jawline, a youthful glow, and a properly functioning lymphatic system.
