Facial cupping is an excellent form of non-invasive treatment that can work to minimize the effects of sun and environmental damage, and aging. It is completely safe to use since it does not involve surgery and long recuperation time, chemicals or any other potentially harmful and painful procedures.
How it Works
Facial cupping is done using customized cups that are specifically designed for treatments on the face, neck and upper chest. The reverse suction that is applied works to gently lift the facial tissues.
This results in massaging of the tissue because of which blood circulation and the draining of the lymph nodes is stimulated. As a result, the tissues receive a fresh supply of oxygen and nutrients; and waste from the cells, and other harmful toxins, and substances are eliminated. Excess fluid is also drained and the facial muscles relax with the movement of the suction cups.

A facial cupping session typically lasts for about 30 minutes. The therapist begins by first cleaning the skin and the applying therapeutic oils such as coconut, jojoba, or any other essential oils that are suited to the kind of treatment and skin type. A light massage is given to the face and neck and then cupping begins. Facial cupping can be either site cupping or gliding cupping. Initially, 1 or 2 sessions per week are recommended. Depending on the condition of the skin and the patient requirements, the therapist could recommend 6 to 12 sessions in all.
