Lymphatic drainage is a massage that stimulates the facial lymph nodes, giving the body’s natural detox process a boost. This treatment is perfect for reducing bloating and promoting an overall sense of well-being. If you have received KYBELLA or CoolSculpting treatments on your neck/chin area, lymphatic drainage is especially helpful.
OUR APPROACH to lymphatic drainage
This relaxing massage uses gentle, yet effective brushing motions to reduce swelling in the eye and neck area, as well as the rest of the face. The lymphatic system consists of a large network of vessels and lymph nodes throughout the body. It is intrinsically linked to your immune system and helps in the removal of waste products from body tissue. The lymphatic system’s function is dependent on the pressure of the blood system. Because of this, your lymph nodes’ ability to eliminate toxins is dependent on the effectiveness of your circulatory system. In some cases, this can mean a slower-than-desirable detox process. This is where physical manipulation of the lymph nodes comes in to help speed up this process.
THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA PLASTIC SURGERY DIFFERENCE
A lymphatic massage session at SF Bay Area Plastic Surgery starts with a light massage on the neck. Your provider will gently rub, stroke, tap, or push the skin in directions that follow the structure of the lymphatic system. This allows the accumulated lymph fluid to drain through proper channels. Lymphatic drainage is very gentle, is not painful, and does not have a stimulating effect. Each session lasts from 45 to 60 minutes and can be performed 4-5 times per week. The number of actual treatments will be recommended by one of our licensed medical providers.
