Facial Cupping Therapy Treatments
Facial Cupping NYC: A Gentle Massaging Action Revitalizes the Skin
The ancient asian practice of facial cupping brings soothing, healing and rejuvenating benefits to the face.
Benefits of Cupping the Face
- Promotes lymphatic drainage
- Reduces puffiness
- Softens fine lines and wrinkles
- Stimulates blood circulation and collagen production
- Benefits sinusitis, congestion and TMJ
- Encourages absorption of skincare products
Cupping therapy for the face uses massage to reach the level of the fascia and lymphatic system. The fascia is a sheet of connective tissue that’s responsible for skin’s firmness and elasticity. The lymphatic system is a network of vessels that maintains the skin’s fluid balance and removes toxins from the body.
Facial cupping uses cups to gently stretches the fascia, while stimulating the lymphatic system. This dual action promotes collagen production and blood circulation, brings nutrients and oxygen to the skin and helps the body flush out toxins and impurities. After cupping, fine lines and wrinkles plump up, while facial muscles relax and soften. Also, facial cupping can result in a softening of acne scars, relief from sinus pain and congestion, as well as reduction in the pain and symptoms associated with TMJ.
Dry Cupping vs. Wet Cupping for the Face: Which is Better?
During body cupping, the cups are often placed on the skin without lubrication and may be left on the body for up to 30 minutes. On the other hand, wet cupping (called dynamic cupping) is the preferred method of treatment for maximum healing benefit to the face. Dynamic cupping includes the use of special facial cups and a light serum, which allows the cups to continuously move over the surface of the skin. The esthetician lightly guides the lubricated cups towards the lymphatic stem to draw out stagnant tissue and aid in the removal of wastes and toxins.
Wet Cupping Therapy: Are There Side Effects and Risks?
Cupping is a noninvasive skincare treatment, which means that patients can return to normal activity following treatment. Further, it is a well-tolerated treatment that many consider as soothing as a massage. However, it is important to have cupping done by a professional esthetician, who is trained in proper facial cupping technique. Because the vascular system on the face is intricate and delicate, if not done correctly, a cupping session may include risk of bruising and swelling.
Are There Other Treatments that Go with Facial Cupping?
When performed together, an Endermolift and facial cupping provide the perfect purifying synergy for the skin. Because they are both designed to stimulate lymphatic drainage, they work together to promote healing, reduce bruising and swelling and remove toxins from the skin. Further, both Endermolift and Facial Cupping are highly efficacious pre and post facial and eye surgery, and have been shown to reduce sinus issues and fibromyalgia pain.
