Benefits of Gua Sha (And How To Use It)
During a Zone Face Lift treatment we use a variety of advanced massage techniques using a gua sha and other tools combined with facial reflexology points to lift the face, sculpt the jawline, boost collagen, elastin and deprogram tense facial muscles. Each Zone Face Lift treatment is unique to each client creating the perfect result with a glowing healthy looking complexion, beginning with the first treatment.
If you are missing your Zone Face Lift treatments, you can still practice self-care and continue to age gracefully with this DIY beauty technique that works without putting harsh chemicals on your face, then try a gua sha facial massage. The gua sha tool will give your face a mini workout and stimulate blood circulation, lymphatic flow and increase the amount of oxygen and nutrients to the skin, to improve skin health.
With all skin care routines, there needs to be consistency and you can use a gua sha tool as part of your morning or evening routine and it will also help alleviate tension on your face, neck and jaw.
Apply a little oil to the skin beforehand, I recommend the amethyst infused Zone Face Lift facial elixir (used in our treatments). As the shape of a gua sha cradles the shape of your face during the massage, smooth the stone in an upward motion from your clavicle to chin. Then up and out along your jawline, over cheekbones and from centre of your forehead to your hairline. Very gently then sweep around the eye area, being careful not to tug the skin.
Unfortunately if you’ve had any botox or fillers I would not recommend this treatment. Other reasons to avoid would be if you have an active skin breakout or rosacea— the pressure could aggravate these conditions.
