Lymphatic drainage massage, also known as manual lymphatic drainage, relieves swelling associated with medical treatment or illness blocking your lymphatic system. This type of massage involves gently manipulating specific areas of your body to help lymph move to an area with working lymph vessels.

As a post-surgery treatment, Dr. Kotis’ office can do lymphatic massage after facelifts and tummy tucks using our HydraFacial machine.

What is lymphatic drainage massage?

Lymphatic drainage massage relieves painful swelling in your arms and legs caused by lymphedema. Lymphedema happens when your tissues retain fluid after your cardiovascular system sends blood to your tissues and organs.

When something disrupts your lymphatic system's process, lymph collects in your arms and legs, making them swell. Lymphatic drainage massage techniques move lymph from your tissues to your lymph nodes, which eases the swelling in your tissues and provides pain relief.

A lymphatic drainage massage is a two-step process that releases lymphatic fluid in your tissues and moves your lymphatic fluid to your lymph nodes to be reabsorbed.

What is the Hydrafacial?

HydraFacial uses patented technology to cleanse, extract, and hydrate by using medical-grade skincare products and advanced techniques to cleanse and moisturize the skin gently. This enriching facial treatment replenishes and restores all skin types, going the extra step to brighten, plump, and protect the skin.

During a Hydrafacial, a gentle vacuum suction deeply cleanses the skin. The skin is then deeply infused with antioxidant-rich serums, which heal and hydrate the skin, resulting in a beautifully fresh, soft, and glowing appearance. Based on your skincare needs and concerns, you will select your ideal serums that will improve specific problems such as dullness, uneven skin texture, or dryness.

Lymphatic Drainage Hydrafacial

The Hydrafacial now offers a patented lymphatic device that uses high-pressure suction applied in a specialized directional method to massage and drain your lymph nodes manually. This drainage can improve circulation, depuff, detoxify, tone, and firm the skin when used after a medical procedure such as a tummy tuck.

The lymphatic drainage Hydrafacial begins with lymphatic drainage therapy, reducing facial puffiness and sinus congestion. Gentle lymphatic massages can stimulate the opening of the lymphatic system to increase lymph flow, assist in draining dormant cellular fluid, and release toxins.

The HydraFacial treatment continues with the whole 5-step Hydrafacial process and includes lymphatic drainage on the neck. Removing toxic buildup is essential in optimizing skin health so the skin can be healthy, inside and out.

Some of the many benefits of a lymphatic drainage Hydrafacial include:

  • Reduction in facial acne breakouts
  • Better circulation
  • Reduced inflammation
  • Reduced sinus pressure discomfort
  • Deeper cleansing
  • Accelerated healing for inflamed skin
  • Reduced scar tissue
  • A promoted overall sensation of relaxation and well-being

What happens during a lymphatic drainage Hydrafacial?

Using the small Hydrafacial handpiece, light sweeping motions are performed on the targeted area to redirect fluid to the lymph nodes. Patients report a relaxing sensation during treatment, and some see a reduction of puffiness in the treated area. Following a lymphatic drainage Hydrafacial treatment, you can expect to return to your normal activities without downtime for the rest of the day.
