The Calming Effects of Manual Lymph Drainage on the Facial Flushing and Edema Symptoms Induced by the Microneedle Therapy System Stimulus
Eun-Woo Lee, Hee-Wook Ryu
In this study, the facial flushing and edema symptoms caused by Microneedle Therapy System (MTS) were observed, and the calming effect of Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) on the flushing and the edema were quantitatively evaluated. The flushing and edema symptoms were remarkably increased just after the MTS stimulus, and reached its peak at 30 min. The facial swelling was occurred about 1.5 to 3.6% and the buccal region among the face was sensitive to the stimulus. In control group taken a rest only after MTS, the flushing symptoms were slowly become calm down, but there is little change in the edema. On the other hand, in the experimental group received the MLD treatment, the flushing and the edema symptoms were quickly reduced. The number and area of the hot flashes were reduced 63% and 79%, respectively, and the swelling face size was more reduced about 0.8~1.6% than the size before MTS stimulus. In conclusion, the MLD is one of the most promising methods to reduce the MTS- induced flushing and swelling symptoms.
