The buccal massage is one of the facial massage techniques that specifically targets the drooping of the jowls (the lower region of the chin). A buccal massage looks a lot like a traditional lymphatic massage of the face, except it takes place inside the mouth, of course.
1. After an aesthetician thoroughly cleanses and protects their hands (usually with medical-grade gloves), they’ll proceed to administer pressure starting from the crease of the nose, moving downwards to the chin.
2. They’ll then target the muscles that surround the mouth, the orbicularis oris, lightly tugging and massaging the lips.
3. Then they massage from the inside of the cheeks with a combination of the thumbs and index fingers, pulling the skin up and down and massaging in a circular motion.
4. From start to finish, a buccal massage generally takes around 30 minutes.
Traditional Lymphatic Drainage
Classic lymphatic facial massage is a way to improve the appearance of the skin by reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and eye bags. Lymphatic drainage massage is a technique that uses light pressure and specific motions to gently drain excess fluid. This treatment accelerates the absorption and transportation of lymphatic fluids which contain toxins, bacteria, viruses, and proteins.
