What You Need To Know
At Connected Health & Skin we offer many treatments for skin health and overall wellbeing. One of our popular treatments is Brazilian Lymphatic Massage and it is asked about quite a lot. We have found this modality to be a valuable tool in most treatment plans for hormonal acne.
What is Brazilian Lymphatic Massage?
Brazilian Lymphatic Massage is a form of massage that involves stimulating the lymphatic drainage system of the body for the removal of toxins and excess fluids. This therapy is specifically suitable for eliminating excess body fluids that tend to accumulate in the deeper tissues of the skin and muscles.
Our luxurious treatment technique is known and loved by the famous names in Hollywood. Brazilian Lymphatic Drainage by Josie Rushing® is an exclusive method that produces immediate and outstanding results, both therapeutically and with visual, body-shaping results. It is a gentle yet vigorous massage that can provide several benefits such as reducing excess fluid retention while accentuating the body curves. It also offers a safe and effective option for patients with cellulite.
Does this treatment help with hormonal acne?
To put it simply yes it does. The stimulation of lymph node drainage is highly recommended for acne. With regular treatment, the symptoms of a congested lymphatic system can be dramatically reduced, improving the skin's appearance.
Acne can be caused by your body trying to cope with excess toxins and hormones. When the lymph system is blocked and fluid is building then your skin can be what suffers. As the toxins are stuck under the skin around the neck and jawline it can cause large breakouts of acne.
You can add things to your skincare routine and you can increase your water intake to help with breakouts but you can also try lymphatic drainage massage. When the skin is gently massaged it will change the direction of the lymph flow, and it removes any build-up and it moves the toxins away from the skin around the neck and jawline.
The lymphatic massage is often advised to those who are trying to regulate their hormones.
