In the research, the hand massage was carried out to do facial treatments 2 times a week, total 20 times for 10 weeks on women in their 20s~40s. 3D Laser Scanner was used to analyze. The change of facial volume decreased by 731mm^3 (p>.05), the thickness of cheekbone area decreased by 0.40mm(p<.05) and the thickness of mastication area decreased by 0.44mm after hand massage(p<.05) By above-mentioned findings, hand massage is likely to be an effective treatment for the reduction of facial volume, the thickness of cheekbone area and mastication area to be basic data of establishing facial line treatment methods.
