Can A Gua Sha Completely Transform Your Skin? Here’s What A Certified Dermatologist Says

Move over, jade roller! There is a new beauty product that’s literally revolutionising the skincare game. Hello, Gua Sha!

There’s a new product named Gua Sha making the rounds on social media, and it claims to help you acquire a more defined jawline. This cutting-edge face toner has been widely praised by beauty vloggers. So, we thought it would be best to consult an expert on the matter.

Let’s check out what Dadu Medical Centre founder and chairman, dermatologist Dr. Nivedita Dadu, has to say regarding Gua Sha.

As a first step, realise that Gua Sha is a viable option

Gua Sha, which translates to “scraping sand,” is a form of facial massage in which an extended stone is used to scrape the muscles of the face. A therapeutic face treatment, it claims to improve facial contours. Gua Sha is an ancient Chinese practise of using a scraping massage implement to increase blood flow.

Considered a traditional Chinese method for improving health and relieving symptoms like chronic pain, it takes a fresh look at an old practise. When you scrape your skin, it turns red, which signals the body to begin the healing process. Today’s Gua Sha therapy, however, is far gentler than that of ancient China.

Is there any truth to the rumour that the Gua Sha can give us a defined jawline?

Yes, there is! The sweeping motion used in Gua Sha therapy, which is upward and outward, is said to improve blood flow. The increased circulation to the face and neck areas not only makes our skin seem healthier and more youthful, but it also helps to tighten and tone the skin in those areas. The goal of this massage method is to minimise puffiness by easing tension in the face muscles, increasing blood flow, and stimulating lymphatic drainage.

How To Do It

Apply some serum, face oil, or moisturiser to the part of the face you choose to treat first. Doing this will enable you to glide the Gua Sha instrument across the skin with more ease. Then, using strong, even strokes in a single direction, push the Gua Sha instrument upwards and outwards on your skin.

When using Gua Sha, you don’t have to worry about any negative effects

Many people believe that Gua Sha is a safe therapeutic technique. The answer is yes; it is perfectly safe. The process itself is painless, although it may leave the skin looking different. Due to the treatment’s manual manipulation, small blood vessels close to the skin’s surface may break. In certain cases, this may cause bruising or light bleeding within the skin. Though, after a few of days, the bruises are gone.

What kind of moisturiser or oil should be used before using the Gua Sha instrument on the face?

A serum or moisturiser is preferable because of their low texture. Moisturizers and serums do not leave a greasy or sticky residue on the face like oil does. However, this also relies greatly on your skin type. Therefore, use whatever feels best on your skin. A moisturiser or serum will work well for acne-prone skin because they are generally non-comedogenic.

How often should a Gua Sha be used?

Whether or not anything is noticeable on someone else’s skin is entirely conditional on that person’s own skin. But Dr. Dadu claims you might get better results if you use this therapy three times each week.
