Dermatologist Leonard Jacquet perfected the Chinese technique and opened the world to the elixir of beauty and youth - Jacquet's face massage.
Jacquet face massage is a therapeutic face massage aimed at working out the deep layers of the skin, improving metabolic processes, and relieving subcutaneous inflammation. The procedure is similar in effectiveness to plastic correction.
The initial purpose of Jacquet's facial massage is to improve the regeneration of the sensitive epithelium. Therapeutic facial massage due to pinch manipulations helped to improve the condition of the dermis after diseases.

The main condition of the procedure is the seizure and rhythmic pinching of skin areas. The specialist alternates between pinching (thumb and forefinger) and stroking to knead the epithelium.

Then there is a working-out of the lines from the chin with the help of pinching: from the middle of the chin to the auricles, from the corners of the mouth to the ears, then an active study of the zone of the nasolabial folds.
The next area of influence is along the lines from the wings of the nose. The master pinches the areas from the nose to the ears, massaging the area of the cheeks and cheekbones.
Massage of the eye area and eyebrow hollows. Manipulation along the line of growth of the eyebrows to the temples helps to neutralize expression and deep wrinkles.
