FACIAL CUPPING A Natural Path to Smoother & Healthier Skin

What is Facial Cupping?

Facial Cupping refers to the technique of using suction cups on the skin to help relax the 43 facial muscles, enhancing blood circulation, boosting collagen production, and stimulating the lymphatic system.

Although it’s now experiencing a surge of popularity, the practice is actually derived from ancient Eastern traditions.

Similar to the post-workout glow, Facial Cupping improves skin circulation without the need for costly products or cosmetic procedures.

How Does Facial Cupping Work?

By delicately lifting the layers of your skin, facial cupping creates space for improved circulation of blood, lymph, and Qi, fostering a healthier complexion from within.

This process not only promotes the release of tension and fascia adhesions, which can lead to wrinkles and sagging, but also triggers the skin’s natural healing response.

Through controlled suction, facial cupping encourages collagen production, enhances skin cell regeneration, and stimulates elastin fibers.

As a result, fine lines diminish, skin appears brighter, and a healthier radiance is restored.
It’s like a revitalizing dance for your skin, leaving you feeling refreshed, and healthier!

Plumper, healthier, and radiant-looking skin.

Is facial cupping safe?

Absolutely! Facial cupping is generally safe when performed correctly. It's a non-invasive technique that has been used for centuries in various cultures. However, it's essential to follow proper procedures and techniques to ensure safety and effectiveness. If you're new to facial cupping, we recommend starting with gentle suction and gradually increasing as you become more comfortable. To help you get started on the right foot, our facial cupping starter kit comes with online tutorials, ensuring that you have access to expert guidance and follow the right guidelines.

What’s the best oil for facial cupping?

The best oil for facial cupping is one that is non-comedogenic, pure, and organic. As cupping increases product absorption into the skin, it's essential to choose oils that won't clog pores or cause breakouts. Prickly pear seed oil is an excellent option for facial cupping. Not only is it non-comedogenic, but it's also rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and fatty acids. This lightweight oil deeply hydrates the skin without leaving a greasy residue, making it perfect for all skin types, including oily and acne-prone skin. Additionally, prickly pear seed oil has anti-inflammatory properties and helps to brighten and rejuvenate the skin, making it an ideal choice for enhancing the benefits of facial cupping.

What are the benefits of facial cupping?

The benefits of facial cupping are numerous and include improved circulation, increased collagen production, and enhanced lymphatic drainage. By gently suctioning the skin, facial cupping helps to stimulate blood flow, which can promote a brighter, more radiant complexion. The mechanical action of cupping also helps to break up fascial adhesions and release tension in the muscles, leading to a more relaxed and youthful appearance. Facial cupping also improves the absorption of skincare products, allowing for deeper penetration of active ingredients and maximizing their effectiveness. Regular facial cupping leads to healthier, glowing skin and helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time. What's not to love about it!

Are there any side effects of facial cupping?

While facial cupping is generally safe, some people may experience minor side effects like temporary redness or bruising around the cupping area. These effects usually fade within a few days. It's important to use the cups properly and avoid applying too much suction to reduce the chance of any issues. If you have sensitive skin or any health concerns, it's a good idea to chat with a healthcare pro before trying facial cupping. Plus, our online course, which comes with the starter kit, gives you all the tips you need to avoid marks and stay safe during your sessions.

How often should I perform facial cupping?

How often you should do facial cupping depends on your skin's needs and how your skin responds to the treatment. For most people, starting with a couple of sessions per week and gradually increasing frequency as your skin adjusts is a good approach. Once you've established a routine, you can usually maintain results with one or two sessions per week. It's essential to listen to your skin and give it time to rest between sessions. Our online course, included with the starter kit, provides guidance on creating a personalized facial cupping schedule tailored to your skin's unique needs.

Can anyone do facial cupping, or are there any restrictions?

Facial cupping is generally safe for most people, but it's essential to consider a few factors before diving in.

While it's suitable for many skin types, individuals with certain skin conditions like severe acne or rosacea should approach with caution or consult a skincare professional before starting.

If you have any medical conditions or concerns, it's always a good idea to chat with a healthcare provider before trying facial cupping.

Please avoid facial cupping if you have:

  • Botox/fillers in the area you plan to cup, as the suction may displace the fillers under your skin. However, you can still safely perform facial cupping in areas not treated with Botox/fillers. Wait at least 3 to 4 months before cupping over an area that has been injected with Botox/fillers.
  • Very thin skin that bruises easily.
  • Open wounds, skin lesions, sores, or burns on your face and/or neck.
  • A history of allergic reactions.
  • Multiple moles in the treatment area. Since we are not dermatologists, we cannot determine if these moles are regular or malignant. It's essential to prioritize safety.
  • Skin cancer.

Our online course, bundled with the starter kit, offers guidance on how to customize your facial cupping routine to fit your individual needs and circumstances.

What equipment do I need for facial cupping?

To get started with facial cupping, it is quite easy. First, make sure you have a set of facial cups and a good-quality facial oil to help the cups slide smoothly over your skin.

It's also helpful if not essential to have access to a tutorial to make sure you're using the cups correctly.

You can also keep a mirror nearby so you can check your technique (at least at the beginning), and have a towel handy to wipe away any excess oil from your hands.

If you want to keep your hair oil-free, consider using a headband as well.

With these simple items, you'll be all set for a relaxing and rejuvenating facial cupping session at home.

How long does it take to see results from facial cupping?

Facial cupping can lead to results relatively quickly, but the exact timeframe can vary depending on individual factors such as skin type, frequency of sessions, and consistency of practice. Some people may notice improvements after just a few sessions, while others may require more time to see noticeable changes.

Generally, consistent practice over three weeks can lead to visible improvements in skin tone, texture, and overall appearance.

It's essential to be patient and consistent with your facial cupping routine to maximize results and achieve long-lasting benefits for your skin.
