Effect of Scalp Massage and Swedish Massage on the Face of Middle Aged Women
You-jin Won, Hyun-sook Bae
To analyze the effects of scalp massage on the facial skin conditions of middle-aged women, this study was conducted in 20 women in their forties and fifties, who were divided into two groups: the scalp group provided with scalp massage (N=9) and the face group provided with Swedish facial massage (N=11). The sebum content on the U and T zones, the pores size, facial wrinkles, and facial pigmentation were measured for a total of four weeks to make comparisons: before the experiment and at weeks 1, 2, 3, and 4 of the experiment. Additional comparisons of variation in the sebum content on the U and T zones, in the pores size, in facial wrinkles, and in facial pigmentation were made between before the experiment and week 1, between week 1 and week 2, between week 3 and week 4, and between before and after the experiment (between week 0 and week 4). The scalp group showed a higher level of facial wrinkles than the face group at week 1 (p<.05). The scalp group showed a greater increase in sebum variation on the U zone between week 3 and week 4 and between before and after the experiment (between week 0 and week 4) (p<.05). The sebum variation on the T zone increased in the scalp group and decreased in the face group (p<.05). As the scalp group was more satisfied with massage (p<.05), it is thought that the massage helped the middle-aged women become emotionally stable by reducing muscle stress.
