Facial Cupping Massage is a relatively new phenomenon, largely based on extending the excellent benefits that dry cupping has on the body, to the face.
Here are some of the conditions Facial Cupping Massage may be used to help with and the way in which Facial Cupping Massage can help with those conditions.
USES & BENEFITS
Facial Cupping can be used to treat skin conditions such as acne because it encourages new blood flow to the area.
Increased blood flow promotes healing. When there is increased circulation and lymphatic drainage, you are also helping to move toxin build up in the facial skin, reducing heat and inflammation.
As Facial Cupping works in the same way as body cupping, it can be used to reduce the appearance of scar tissue.
Scar tissue can restrict circulatory and lymphatic flow and trap stagnation. If the scar tissue is left untreated, it can create adhesions to the healthy tissue around it, creating a more extensive scar. To restore the skin tissue around injuries, the scar tissue needs to be rehydrated with fresh blood and oxygen. Facial Cupping brings fresh blood flow to the concerned area.
Some research has shown that Facial Cupping can have a beneficial effect on reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
Facial Cupping can increase oxygen-rich blood circulation, strengthen skin and connective tissues, stimulate the cells responsible for collagen production.
