I have always been a skincare enthusiast. I learned very early on how important and beneficial a good skincare routine can be, and even spent a couple of years selling a wonderful brand that I still use regularly. So it’s no small wonder that I jumped at the chance to take the Bellanina Facelift Massage seminar. I was excited and intrigued to find out what this facelift massage entailed and how it worked. Not to mention if it actually worked. The Bellanina Facelift Massage is now my favorite service that I offer, and the response I get from my clients always makes me
What is it exactly? It is a facial massage mixing massage strokes, acupressure, lymph drainage, and luxurious oils. Along with that are the Honeylift treatment, warm towels, hot stones, and a head, hand and foot massage. It is truly the most pampering and relaxing treatment I offer.
How does it work? Consider that an hour of massage produces results equal to two hours of exercise. It is basically exercise for your face. Muscles, skin, and facial bones get a circulation boost providing them with much needed oxygen and nutrition. This increases the skin’s natural functions like cell renewal and healing. The muscles get toned which naturally boosts your facial structure and the fine facial contours. Lymph drainage helps to take puffiness from the eyes and under the chin. Acupressure points are stimulated to reduce circulation and energy flow blockages throughout the face. It also helps to reduce holding patterns in muscles. I always think of someone who seems to have a permanently furrowed brow. The muscles responsible for that look relax and lengthen to bring back the more natural, relaxed quality to the brow. The Honeylift treatment targets lines and wrinkles, clears pores, and stimulates collagen production.
What results does it give? It depends on what you’re looking for. A single relaxation treatment tends to bring a vibrance and youthful radiance that lasts for several days. If you are looking for dramatic results that replace going under the knife you would have to consider a series of 12 to 18 treatments. Remember that this mimics exercise and is a completely natural process. If a series of treatments is chosen you receive skin care counseling, and what to look for in a skin care routine that would most benefit your concerns. On the 6th treatment you are given an at-home routine of 10 steps to do once a day that only takes a few minutes. It’s like treating yourself to a mini massage that maintains and increases the effectiveness of the 90 minute
I always try to practice what I preach, so I follow the 10 step daily maintenance. I would love to get the full treatment, but it’s about an hour drive to a practitioner I know. However, just doing the at-home routine I have noticed quite a difference. Considering that I am only 28, I’m pretty impressed. When I smile I can see more muscle tone and structure in my cheeks. My skin is very
soft with a healthy glow. The red splotches that have always been on my cheeks have faded noticeably. It should be very interesting to see the long-term effects of such an easy treatment!
