<p style="text-align: center;"><span>The face is made of more than 45 different muscles. All active, all indispensable, they set themselves apart from others by their interconnection with each other.

That is why they are almost continuously contracted and require special attention.

STEP 1: LYMPH AND POSTURE RESET

This protocol serves as the foundation for all others. Maneuvers on the scalp help relax the face and skull.

It is designed to stimulate the microcirculation of fluids, including lymphatic, while also promoting drainage of impurities from the face and neck. Massage enhances the skin's radiance by helping to support circulation in that area.

STEP 2: PRECISION SCULPTING

As we age, the skin tends to lose its supportive framework. More crucially, the facial muscles also undergo aging, losing density and consequently failing to provide adequate support to the skin and the underlying fat pads. Consequently, the skin begins to sag, and the face loses its youthful contours.

This sculpting technique is specifically crafted to alleviate the accumulated tension in each targeted muscle before stretching to reinvigorate them. Start with the massage and use with Stimulskin Plus Absolute Renewal Cream to begin visibly reshaping facial contours for a more lifted look and harmonious facial appearance overtime.

STEP 3: RELEASE AND SOOTHING

Specifically designed for delicate skin, this lymphatic protocol focuses on draining, as well as calming, and soothing muscles through massage. This protocol is designed to gradually drain impurities and promote circulation in that area. Gentle movements ensure skin comfort and an overall sense of relaxation.
