This is how manual lymph drainage works at Dermacare in Vienna

A brief discussion of the findings takes place before the initial treatment. After the patients have freed themselves – depending on the body region to be treated – the manual lymph drainage starts. For this, the neck is first “opened”. This means that the main lymph node trunk is activated. This is followed by lymph drainage, at the end of which the neck is “closed” again.

Advantages of manual facial-lymph drainage

Manual lymph drainage offers many advantages, especially in the treatment of the face. Because it has a relaxing effect on swellings and bags under the eyes and the gentle pressure optimises the removal of harmful substances. The treatment also improves acne, couperose and the overall skin condition. In addition, not only headaches and migraines are relieved, but the relaxing effect has an effect on the whole body. Last but not least, the patients are happy about a beautiful “glow” on their face after the manual facial-lymph drainage.
