The Importance Of Lymph Nodes

To be truly beautiful is to know that you’ve taken good care of yourself. Lymph nodes play an important function in our body’s immune system.

Take good care of our body and it’ll run like a well-oiled machine. Even though the body may seem like a complicated network of nerves, blood vessels and organs, which scientists and doctors are still studying, every single part – whether big or small – counts in our journey to good health and good looks.

Lymph nodes play an important function in our body’s immune system

One example is our lymph nodes. They are small, soft, round or oval structures found throughout the body and their function is to host disease-fighting cells. In essence, lymph nodes act as filters or traps for foreign particles and are important in the proper functioning of our immune system. But because our lymph nodes are out of sight, we don’t think about how important they are until something bad happens to our body. Lymph nodes can become swollen due to inflammation, an infection and even cancer. This is why we need to take care of our lymphatic system as part of our holistic well-being.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage Facial Treatment for Lymph Nodes

Facial treatments such as Halley’s Signature Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) facial addresses that by stimulating the lymph system and encouraging lymph flow in the body. The therapist will use an extremely light, circular pumping movement to stimulate the lymphatic system, which helps rid the body of toxins and reduces fluid retention in the face resulting in a slimmer appearance. Aesthetics equipment like intense pulsed light, iontophoresis and radio frequency are often used in tandem with the MLD treatment.

Your lymphatic system also gets a treat in Halley’s Signature Firm It Up Facial, which features the Super Trio RF Treatment. This treatment facial not only slims and tightens the face using multi-polar radio frequency (RF) and red ligh-emitting diode (LED) therapy, the vacuum-suction lymph massage detoxifies, aids healing and delivers nutrients to where they’re needed most.
