The beneficial effect of lymphatic drainage

Lymphatic vessels are responsible for the removal of water deposits in the tissue and are comparable to blood vessels. If the lymph flow is reduced, this can lead to swelling, which is caused by the accumulation of fluid in the tissue. This is often painful or uncomfortable. A facial lymphatic drainage treatment offers an effective way to stimulate lymph flow and see a noticeable change.

The liberating power of lymphatic drainage stimulates circulation, is therapeutic and beneficial and is performed exclusively by trained specialists at our institute in Vienna. So if you’re looking for lymphatic drainage near you, GoAesthetic is the right place for you.

By the way: Manual lymphatic drainage of the face is often combined with other facial treatments such as hydrafacial combined. Lymphatic drainage is also recommended after anti-ageing treatments such as injections with hyaluronic acid or microneedling.

Do you still have questions about which treatment is right for you? No problem! Simply make an appointment for a consultation online or give us a call if you have any questions about lymphatic drainage or other facial treatments.

“Lymphatic drainage gently reduces swelling, detoxifies the skin and makes you feel fresher. By reducing water retention, it can therefore easily contribute to general well-being.”Dr. Peter Herndlhofer

What problems can be improved with manual lymphatic drainage?

The following improvements can be achieved after several facial lymphatic drainage treatments:

  • Reduction of swelling and water retention
  • Relief from feelings of tension and fatigue
  • Improvement in skin circulation and skin quality
  • Changes in stress symptoms and promotion of relaxation
  • Support for detoxification of the skin

How does facial lymphatic drainage work?

Facial lymphatic drainage is a highly effective, gentle and non-invasive form of massage that is specifically designed to activate the lymphatic system. This technique uses gentle rhythmic movements that are carried out along the lymph channels and nodes in the visual field. These movements are designed to support the natural flow of lymph. This promotes blood circulation, which relaxes the muscles in the face. This also encourages water retention to drain away. Important: When performing lymphatic drainage on the face, do not apply firm pressure to the affected areas.

What can I expect after lymphatic drainage?


Gives your body moments of relaxation so that you have more energy again in everyday life.


Free your body of toxins to increase your well-being.


Combine it with other facial treatments such as a hydrafacial for fresher-looking skin.


Noticeably firmer skin thanks to improved blood circulation and stimulation of the lymph flow.

Important information about facial lymphatic drainage

Lymphdrainage Wien

What do you need to bear in mind during lymphatic drainage?

Before treatment:

  • Check your state of health: In the case of certain health conditions, such as acute infections, inflammation, heart problems or blood clotting disorders, a medical consultation should be arranged in advance.

  • No heavy meal: It can be helpful not to eat a large meal 1 hour before the lymphatic drainage to avoid discomfort.

  • Hydration: Drink plenty of water before the treatment to keep the body hydrated and improve circulation so that your body is optimally prepared for detoxification and lymph flow.

After treatment:

  • Drink water: Hydration promotes blood circulation in the body, which is why we recommend drinking plenty of water to help the body detoxify and remove dissolved substances via the lymphatic system.

  • Allow yourself to rest: It is important to rest immediately after manual lymphatic drainage to prolong the relaxing effect and support the healing process.

  • Avoid physical exertion: We recommend avoiding physical exertion and intensive sport immediately after lymphatic drainage.

  • Heat: No sauna, solarium or hot showers immediately afterwards.

  • No coffee or alcohol: Avoid alcoholic drinks or coffee, as these can dehydrate the body and put a strain on the lymphatic system.

Lymphatic drainage is generally a safe, effective and gentle treatment method. It is often used to reduce swelling, promote detoxification of the body and improve general well-being. As the technique works with predominantly light movements without firm pressure, it is particularly gentle. At GoAesthetic in Vienna, lymphatic drainage is performed exclusively by trained specialists.

There are some circumstances in which caution is advised and lymphatic drainage is not recommended: Acute infections, heart problems, blood clotting disorder, acute inflammation, serious illness.

Although lymphatic drainage is considered to be very safe, undesirable side effects can occur in rare cases:

  • Excessive tiredness: Detoxification can lead to increased tiredness in the short term.
  • Circulatory problems: Slight headache or dizziness.

The recommended interval between sessions varies as it depends on several factors. The intervals vary depending on the treatment goal and treatment area on the face. Specific swelling in the face often requires lymphatic drainage several times a week for several weeks. If the focus is more on regeneration and detoxification, 2 treatments per month may be sufficient. There is no general answer to this question, which is why we discuss your goals before the first lymphatic drainage session and draw up a treatment plan together with you.

To maximize the effectiveness of the treatment and promote general well-being, there are a few points to consider between sessions:

  • Hydration: Drink plenty of water to support lymph flow and promote detoxification.
  • Healthy diet: A balanced diet can help to relieve the body and improve the results of lymphatic drainage.
  • Physical activity: Regular light exercise and yoga help to promote lymph flow.
  • Skin care: Gentle skin care can support skin health, especially in the treated area.
