Gua sha is a process in which a tool is scraped against the skin to the point that it creates mild erythema. The goal of the treatment is to enhance blood flow to the skin.
The gua sha technique, which translates to ‘scrape wind,’ was primarily first used on the body to release toxins and relieve pain in tired, sore, or injured muscles. By ‘scraping’ with repeated strokes on the surface of the skin, the gua sha helps stimulate new blood flow and draw out stagnation in the problem areas to help generate metabolic cell repair and healing. The cold stone also helps to reduce puffiness underneath the eyes, place on top of eyes for a few minutes to soothe.
How to use?
For a firming effect, start with the cheekbones, and moving outwards. Then, go against the jaw line to create more contour and definition.Afterwards, move the roller down the back of your ears toward the clavicle, allowing the excess fluids to drain down to the lymphatic system.
Use 2-3 times a week interchanging between the facial roller and the gua sha massager. Follow each treatment with desired facial serum.
