Benefits of Facial Cupping Rejuvenation

Done properly, cupping therapy will bring collagen to the surface and increase blood flow, reduce puffiness, dark circles and diminish fine lines. But the benefits go beyond just cosmetic, facial cupping can be very beneficial to drain nasal sinuses and the lymphatic system.

  • Increased blood circulation to head and neck
  • Increased circulation and absorption of nutrients to the skin
  • Improved absorption of facial products
  • Drainage of stagnant fluids
  • Reduced puffiness and edema
  • Reduced appearance and prevention of facial lines and wrinkles
  • Facial cupping is entirely painless and is not an irritant to the skin; it can be used on rosacea, melasma and even on sensitive skin.

Facial Cupping Rejuvenation

Facial cupping is a traditional, time-honored treatment that remains favored by millions worldwide because it’s safe, comfortable and remarkably effective.   Small and medium suction cups are used during facial rejuvenation cupping create a gentle vacuum to lift the skin and other facial tissue. Lifting the facial tissue activates the lymphatic drainage to eliminate toxins, cellular waste and excess fluid in the face and neck. Facial Cupping increases circulation, plumps lines, lightens scars, while toning the muscles and draining stagnation.  Rigid muscle tissue in the face and neck is easily massaged with facial cupping.

The procedure itself takes anywhere from 15 minutes to half hour to perform. Cups are positioned over points on the face for short periods of time.  Medium cups can be gently dragged along the skin for lifting and firming effects, small oblong cups, can be used in the eye area, for sagging eyelids, puffy under eyes, and dark circles.

As with any therapeutic treatment, results can vary from person to person.  The recommended initial course of treatment with facial cupping consists of between 6 and 12 sessions. The results are cumulative, especially if treatments are performed 1-2 times per week.  I recommend monthly follow-up sessions to maintain the original results.

Contraindications For Cupping
Cupping Massage Therapy is contraindicated in cases of severe diseases, i.e. cardiac failure, renal failure, ascites due to hepato-cirrhosis and severe edema, as well as hemorrhagic diseases such as allergic pupura, hemophilia and leukemia, and clients with dermatosis, destruction of skin, or allergic dermatitis.
