Face taping is a relatively young fashionable cosmetic procedure. Some of its fans are confident that it can make their face look young and beautiful without surgery.
Taping has been used in sports for decades. Injured athletes use tapes to quickly restore muscles and ligaments. Cosmetologists became interested in the effect of the tapes on muscles and decided to use this method to rejuvenate the body and face.
Marketers saw a new market niche and began to offer special tapes for cosmetic procedures. Tapes are adhesive-backed elastic tapes. You can use taping on your face, arms, abdomen, and legs. Cosmetologists assure that the correct use of this method helps to relieve muscle hypertonicity, remove edema and smooth out creases and folds on the skin.
Cosmetologists claim that taping helps fight wrinkles because this method eliminates the hypertonicity of the facial muscles. Thus, tapes help the facial muscles to relax.
Tapes do a good job with the problem of wrinkles and nasolabial folds. These areas are under a lot of stress during the day, so you should relax them.
After a certain age, changes begin in the muscles of the face and they require additional care. Taping can lift the skin and make the face contour clear and firm. In addition, taping has a lymphatic drainage effect, which means it prevents the stagnation of lymph in the tissues of the skin of the face and neck. After several treatments, lymph movement and blood supply return to normal, and the skin looks fresh and rested.
Taping has certain patterns that affect the effectiveness of the procedure. Therefore, you should study your problems and find a tape application scheme to fix them.
Face taping is the most popular taping procedure. But, many cosmetologists use taping to lift breasts, reduce waste, and fight cellulite.
Many people do not use tapes because they believe it takes a long time. 30 minutes to 2 hours is enough for affecting.
Also, cosmetologists warn that one taping session will not give the desired result. Taping blocks the increased work of some muscles and reduces their mobility. Thus, it is only after a few tapping sessions that the muscles return to a state of rest.
Cosmetologists cannot name a specific number of procedures required. It all depends on the condition of the muscles and age-related changes. But after a couple of sessions, you will understand the technique of using the tape and see the first results.
You can contact a specialist who will carry out the procedure for you. Although, taping is a fairly simple method that anyone can learn. You do not need to have a medical degree to do this. You can tap at home at any time convenient for you.
Cosmetologists draw your attention to the quality of the tapes that you use. You can buy special tapes for the face, chest, arms and so on. Do not use materials that are not intended for taping. Some people may use scotch tape instead of tapes. This is a dangerous technique that damages your skin and muscles.
Tapes are made from a special material and glue that does not cause inflammation on the skin. They have been specially tested and do not pose a danger to your health. If you use scotch tape, you are responsible for the harm you cause to your body.
Plus, using scotch tape won’t do you any good. It quickly loses its shape and does not hold the muscle. Therefore, it does not affect. In addition, the use of scotch tape gives the usual mechanical lifting instead of the effect of relaxing the facial muscles. Thus, you stretch the skin even more, which means aggravate age-related changes.
Despite the immense popularity of this cosmetic procedure, some are against its use.
Opponents of taping give many reasons why you shouldn’t use tapes for rejuvenation.
They are convinced that this is a useless procedure that does not give any positive results.
Also, they claim that the tapes on the skin adversely affect the microbiome and skin health in general.
When you peel off the adhesive tape, it traumatizes the epidermis, causing the skin’s barrier properties to be compromised.
As a result, the skin intensively loses moisture, becomes more sensitive, more permeable to smog particles and those components of cosmetics that should not penetrate the deeper layers of the skin. Also, the skin becomes more vulnerable to UV rays.
If you want to use taping for a cosmetic effect, you should seek advice from your beautician. A specialist can determine the condition of your skin and analyze the effect of tapes on its condition.
