There is a slight exfoliation of the corneous cells of the epidermis, an improvement in skin regeneration, an increase in blood supply, an acceleration of lymph outflow. The result is a fresh, radiant appearance of the skin, prevention of age-related changes. The course consists of 10-15 procedures with a frequency of 2-3 procedures per week.

Spanish facial massage loudly declared itself in the early 90s and quickly gained popularity practically all over the world. Although the technique itself has been known since the beginning of the 20th century, when the Spanish naturopathic physician Ferrandis comprehensively studied the massage techniques of his Spanish and American colleagues.

Lymphatic drainage facial massage
Over the years, fluid retention is observed in the skin of the face. This manifests itself in the form of a pasty face in the morning, puffiness under the eyes, traces from the pillow are imprinted on the face and persist for a long time. Lymphatic drainage facial massage is aimed at eliminating congestion in the face, neck and décolleté. During the procedure, the outflow of lymph improves and congestion in the form of puffiness and pastiness decreases.
