There's a new workout facility in town and it's for your SKIN! Luckily, it's a non-invasive and non-cosmetic process that can immediately improve the appearance and health of your skin.
Face Gym is a new facial exercise in LA. dedicated to relieving tension, hydrating, and reducing signs of premature aging for clients. The trainers use a range of kneading methods to stimulate blood flow, collagen production, and cell renewal. While this may be new to LA, facial massages or "workouts" are actually very common in Japanese culture. It's usually referred to as the "Tanaka Massage" promising to make you look ten years younger within two weeks! This massaging method is useful because it's very similar to body massages. Dehydration and poor blood circulation can lead to swollen, dry, and puffy skin. Tension built up from stress, can make your muscles feel tighter and increase extreme signs of aging. The process stimulates the cells and moves toxins from your face through your neck, increasing cell-reproduction and blood flow to the right areas for luminous + vibrant skin. There are estheticians + dermatologists who provide facial gym techniques with their clients but the other aspects of a facial are usually somewhat invasive. Some call the facial gym method "A Non-Invasive Facelift", but in order to maintain the results, you'd have to go at least twice a week.... and consciously cut out stress.
There are currently, 4 workouts you can choose from, Clean + Lift (Deep Clean + Tight Lift), Signature Sculpt (Tone), Cryo Contour (Hydration), Radio Frequency (Sculpt + Tighten).
The tension areas in your face will allow the trainer to customize workouts and products that readily fit your needs. Although it's considered a workout, the process does help with other skin problems such as broken capillaries, uneven skin tone, blemishes, dehydration, and collagen production. My favorite products are the training sticks and training serum. It's always sold out, so you have to act fast! If you're not a person who gets a facial regularly, I highly recommend you try this place, at least once. It's amazing, beneficial with noticeable results and you can try at no-risk!
Face Gym is located in Hotel 1, 8490 Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069
