Buccal Facial Sculpting Massage

Buccal (pronounced “buckle”) Facial Sculpting is an exciting treatment option for anyone looking for a natural, non-invasive alternative to prevent and correct the aging process. Clients come to Halcyon Cosmetic Clinic from Port Moody, Coquitlam, PoCo and beyond for this effective cosmetic treatment.

This specialized facial massage simultaneously works facial muscles, ligaments, fascia, and the lymphatic system from both the exterior and interior to slow premature aging and provide additional health benefits. A favourite of Meghan Markle’s, Buccal Massage has been featured in beauty magazines worldwide as the newest treatment to sculpt and define the face, without risk of damaging skin and facial tissues.

A Buccal face massage improves many signs of aging and facial tension:

  • Brightens and firms skin
  • Reduced heaviness, puffiness and dark circles
  • Sculpts facial contours and lifts

  • Softens lines and wrinkles
  • Decreases facial tension and TMJ
  • Releases emotional distress

Buccal Benefits

Benefits of Buccal Massage Facial Sculpting include:

Brighter, Firmer Skin

Stimulation of blood circulation and oxygenation from deep tissue buccal manipulation increases nutrient delivery to skin, muscle, and fascia. Increased nutrients contribute to increased collagen and elastin production for a firmer overall tone and brighter, healthier appearing skin.

Reduced Heaviness, Puffiness & Dark Circles

Busy lifestyles, alcohol, poor diet, lack of sleep, and lack of physical movement, all contribute to reduced lymphatic flow, causing facial heaviness and undereye puffiness. Buccal massage promotes movement of heavy, stagnant fluids trapped in the lymphatic system of the cheeks, jaw and neck to improve skin detoxification and reduce the appearance of puffiness, undereye bags and dark circles.

Facial Sculpting & Lift

Repeated stretching and strengthening of the facial muscles while increasing nutrient delivery, is similar to working the muscles of your body while increasing nutrients. The overall muscle framework is strengthened and toned, and facial muscles are retrained to achieve a natural lift of the cheeks and improve contour and definition of the jawline.

Softer Lines & Wrinkles

After the hard work of repetitive stretching and relaxation of facial tissues, muscle tension is released and natural, flowing facial movement is restored. This decreases repetitive movement in limited areas, resulting in softening of existing facial lines and wrinkles.

Decreased Tension & TMJ

The effects of facial tension and jaw clenching are often visible to others and can contribute to an overall tense, aged appearance. The rhythmic and repetitive movements of buccal massage are deeply relaxing and address areas of tension unattainable during external massage. As attachment points along the jaw are released, tension, muscle spasms and pain subside, allowing for a more pleasant, relaxed facial posture. Ideal for prevention and treatment of TMJ (temporomandibular joint) conditions.

Released Emotional Distress

Most don’t realize the intense level of emotional distress held within our facial muscles, yet know that a happy, relaxed person always appears more beautiful and youthful. After both masticatory and facial muscles reach a point of rest and intraosseous tension is released, follows an incredibly pleasant sensation of total release.

No Injections Required

For those who are needle-phobic, or simply prefer to avoid injectable facial treatments, Buccal Facial Sculpting is a means to achieve a brighter complexion, a relaxed and youthful appearance, and natural lift, without undergoing common injection therapies.

    Buccal FAQ

    Who can perform Buccal Facial Sculpting?

    This advanced massage technique should be reserved only for qualified therapists well educated in facial anatomy and physiology.

    What can I expect during Buccal Facial Sculpting?

    Although buccal massage involves a significant amount of intraoral manipulation required to sculpt facial muscles and reduce tension from the inside, all treatments begin with exterior massage to ensure you are relaxed and comfortable before this begins.

    Is a Buccal Facial Massage painful?

    In general, buccal massage is relatively pain-free, but the sensation will vary depending how much tension is held in the facial muscles and jaw, much like a body massage.

    Will I see the results of my Buccal Facial Massage immediately?

    One session will result in a more relaxed appearance, reduced fluid retention and less constricted facial movement but, like going to the gym, longer term sculpting and lift requires consistency and results are cumulative.

    How many Buccal Sculpting sessions will I need?

    A series of 5-10 weekly treatments are recommended, followed by monthly maintenance treatments.

    Are there contraindications to Buccal Facial Sculpting?

    Buccal sculpting should not be performed on anyone with active acne lesions, or any type of open facial would or infection. All clients must wait three weeks after any Botox or filler injection.

    Do you refuse treatment for any other reasons?

    Yes, our licensed therapists reserve the right to refuse treatment should there be any reason they feel this service is not right for you.
