Massage rollers are commonly used for beauty care, but their effects on skin blood flow (SkBF) and vascular reactivity remain unclear. We hypothesized that the short-term usage of a massage roller increases the SkBF, while a long-term massage intervention improves vascular dilatation. We measured the facial SkBF change to 5 min massage roller to the right cheek in 12 subjects. We also assessed the effect of 5-week daily use of facial massage roller on the SkBF in the right cheek and the reactivity to local heat in 14 subjects. The short-term massage significantly increased facial SkBF solely in the right cheek for at least 10 min after the massage. The 5-week intervention significantly increased the vasodilatation response to the heat stimulation solely in the right cheek. These findings suggested that performing short-term facial massage with a roller increases SkBF, and long-term use improves the vascular dilatation response.
