The Ayurvedic Facial Rejuvenation Massage
revolutionary non-surgical treatment using facial massage that slows down the
aging process, irons out wrinkles, lifts and tones the skin and gives it a
natural glow. It is an Ayurvedic massage, which incorporates the techniques of
yoga, polarity therapy, acupressure and Swedish massage.

The connective tissue under the dermis is critical
in the way that the face shows aging. It is made up of the structural protein
collagen and the elastic fibers called Elastin which increase the strength and
flexibility of the skin.
Under a microscope these
fibers look like a loose tangle of fibers. These Collagen and Elastin bundles
run in specific directions in different parts of the body. Gradually over time,
the strength and flexibility of these fibers deteriorates. Some of the fibers
break apart while others develop cross links that bind them and lock them into
place to form a shapeless matted tangle. This blocks the flow of fluid through
the dermis, reducing its suppleness and preventing the fibers stretching and
moving freely with the muscles in the face. Once the Elastin fibers have
hardened and shrunk, the skin starts to sag.
Another cause of ageing is the
stiffening of the gelatin like ground substance. The chains of protein
molecules that make up this material get bound together, this reduces the skins
In addition, the connective tissues of the dermis can glue the skin to the
tissues surrounding the muscles and bones – this makes the face look drawn in,
tight and pinched.
While these age-related changes can’t be prevented indefinitely, there is much
