One of the MELT techniques that always gets a “wow” when I demonstrate it is something called the ’50 Second Facelift’.
The MELT large soft ball is not just for your Hands and Feet but can also be used on your Face. What I demonstrate is doing the technique on just one side of my face and then let people see the difference between the left and right side of my face. People are amazed at how the side of the face I’ve worked is lifted.
But it’s much more than just a quick beauty booster. This hydrating sequence is also a great treatment for people who suffer from chronic jaw pain, TMJ (Temporomandibular joint syndrome), sinus issues, headaches, migraines, or vertigo. You can do the MELT Facelift Treatment as a standalone treatment or add it to any MELT map to bring some hydration and relaxation to your entire face.
So how does it work? Well, Sue Hitzmann the creator of the MELT Method © explains…
“the layer of connective tissue right under the skin is called the superficial fascia. This particular layer is the flexible scaffolding that supports your skin. This fascia is the supportive infrastructure that gives your skin its tone, lift, and integrity. The primary cells within this tissue are called fibroblasts and, when they are active, they are the cells that produce the majority of the collagen and elastin molecules we rely on to keep everything in our body stable and supported, including our skin.
The problem is, as we age these cells stop proliferating, meaning there are more cells dying than there are new ones being produced. Fewer cells means less collagen production, which translates into sagging skin, compressed joints, and basically less support for the visible parts of our body.
One of the things I love about connective tissue is that it’s quite responsive. The very things that dehydrate the tissue – tension and compression – can stimulate the cells, thus keeping them active… if you know how to do it right.
The secret to stimulating the superficial layers of your connective tissue is to not press hard. The lighter the touch, the more you stimulate the cells closest to the skin. Doing this takes just minutes, but the benefits are long lasting.”
The ’50 Second Facelift’ uses just the Large Soft Ball from the MELT Hand and Foot Treatment Kit. You can also do something called the MELT Facelift Treatment which uses the MELT Soft Roller. The MELT Facelift Treatment is designed to restore hydration and relaxation to your entire face.
Take a MELT class and find out for yourself, it really does work!
