Looking for a new treatment to combat the effects of stress, travel, and lack of sleep on your skin and body? Joanna Vargas, celebrity facialist and founder of Joanna Vargas Salons and Skincare, is now offering a lymphatic drainage full body massage at her New York salon. We asked Joanna about this new treatment and its amazing benefits.

Downtown: What’s special about this type of massage?

JV: Your lymphatic system brings nutrients and carries away waste from every cell in the body. It doesn’t have its own pump, so the lymphatic system relies on our own body movement to perform vital function. A stagnant lymphatic system will cause acne, breakouts, and even dry skin.

Downtown: What kind of results do you get from a lymphatic drainage massage?

JV: Drawing out toxins and waste, my Lymphatic Drainage Full Body Massage drains the body of excess puffiness and helps the lymphatic system deliver fresh nutrients to cells, for glowing skin from head-to-toe.

Downtown: Why did you decide to bring this treatment to your clients?

JV: It’s healthy for the skin and body to have lymphatic stimulation, and it improves clients’ overall appearance. 

Downtown: How often should you get one of these massages?

JV: You should get the Lymphatic Drainage Full Body Massage done once a week leading up to an event and once a month for maintenance.
