Is a Facial Massager the Secret to Firmer, Tighter Skin? We Investigate

Kaitlyn McLintock


In my humble opinion, the best part of a facial, aesthetician appointment, or skin treatment is the face massage. There's something simultaneously relaxing and invigorating about it; I always suspected that it was great for my skin, but it turns out that it's even better than I previously thought. Take it from dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon Dendy Engelman. "There are many benefits to frequent facial massages. It's a short addition to one's skincare routine that greatly enhances the skin's appearance." Plastic surgeon Melissa Doft agrees: "Facial massage devices can be helpful in increasing blood flow, leading to decreased puffiness and improved circulation," she says. "Patients find that they appear more awake and radiant."

Facial massage may be quick and effective, but it's still a technique with a right and wrong way of practicing. In other words, it doesn't involve rubbing or pulling the skin. Instead, it should be gentle and thoughtful. That's why it might be time to invest in a facial massage device. These devices are clean, easy on the skin, and super effective (trust me). Keep reading to learn more about facial massager benefits and see the ones that experts recommend using.
