Using special cups designed for the delicate skin of the face, facial cupping offers many similar benefits. Facial cupping stimulates blood flow to the tissue. By improving blood circulation to the skin, fibroblast cells are stimulated which produce natural collagen and elastin. Increasing fibroblast activity thickens the skin back to its youthful state. Facial cupping reduces wrinkles and fine lines, as well as increases the absorption of skin care products.
Just as in acupuncture the Qi must be flowing freely before optimal results can be achieved. After I have removed any energetic blocks and the Qi is flowing freely, I use cups of different sizes strategically placed on areas of the face. Almost immediately, you will feel your muscles start to relax and any facial tension melting away. The treatment is finished with the application of a custom serum I have created using Rosehip Seed Oil. You'll notice plumper, fuller skin right away. Don't worry: Unlike body cupping, which can bruise, facial cupping tends to be much gentler.
Although I recommend a series of 12 sessions for a more lasting effect, it’s a great thing to do before a special occasion. It gives you that lifted and refreshed look.
