Cosmecanique- A great facial massage

Is Your Face In Shape?

Facial muscles need fitness too, and the Lift 6 Cosmécanique® provides the excellent exercise those facial muscles need.

In 1907, a French dermatologist named Dr. Jacquet introduced a facial massage technique that consisted of gentle manual squeezing, twisting, and kneading of the skin. Dr. Jacquet’s technique provides “a marked increase in circulation, temperature elevation, and sensation of warmth and tingling.” Other benefits are relaxation and facial well-being, such as one experiences throughout the body after a good massage.

Cosmecanique strengthens the dermis of the face by correcting circulation deficiencies and stimulating fibroblasts to increase collagen production, thereby improving elasticity.

The process exercises the cutaneous layer of the skin and combats aging by attacking flaccidity, wrinkles, expression lines, dehydration, and poor circulation.

Cosmecanique works by stimulating the underlying structure of the skin with small, multi-directional pulsations of air and mobile massage. It stimulates a physiological change in the production of collagen and elastin and improves the overall health of the skin. It can be used to address jowls, or wrinkles around the eyes, lips, and forehead. This quick, no-mess treatment provides a natural facial workout that benefits the skin by firming, toning, and draining excess fluid. It tightens and smoothes loose, puffy skin.


What to expect during the session:

In preparation for the treatment, your skin will be cleansed thoroughly. You will then relax and enjoy a 30 minute facial massage! Your Esthetician will cover the entire surface of the face from the forehead to your neck, focusing on the areas that need the most attention. Once completed, you will receive a customized application of treatments to ensure your skin’s health and protection.

What to expect after the session:

Most will see a lifting effect soon after the treatment, while others may need 2-3 days for the complete effects to take place. Lifting, tightening, smoothing and contouring will be noticeable as will a healthy rested look to the complexion.

Recommended protocols:

For maximum results, individuals may need 1-2 treatments weekly for up to 10 sessions. Once desired results are achieved, 1-2 sessions monthly would be recommended to maintain results. Can be a stand alone treatment or added on to any other facial. Pairs especially well with the Radiancy.
