Facial Cupping

Facial cupping is a traditional, time-honored treatment that remains favored by millions worldwide because it’s safe, comfortable and remarkably effective.  Women in Asia, Russia, and Europe have been utilizing these remarkable facial cupping techniques for rejuvenation and maintenance for years.

At Isthmus Acupuncture small 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. Rigid muscle tissue in the face and neck is easily massaged with facial cupping.

Facial Rejuvenation Cupping

Benefits of Facial Rejuvenation Cupping:

  • 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

What to Expect from your Facial Cupping Session 

Your facial cupping session starts with a thin application of coconut oil.  After a light face and neck massage, your facial cupping treatment begins.  It is best to arrive for your treatment with long hair tied back and a clean face.  A typical facial rejuvenation treatment lasts 30 minutes, however, additional massage time may be added upon request.  Therapeutic grade essential oils may be added/recommended depending on skin condition or treatment needed.  Essential oils are available at an additional charge.  Please drink an ample amount of water before and after each treatment.

Lines and wrinkles will plump and any scar tissue will soften. The drainage of stagnant fluids from reservoir areas will reduce edema and chronic puffiness.  The muscles of the face benefit greatly from the reduction of tension and tightness, releasing expression lines and loosening rigid muscle tissue.   Facial cupping can provide significant therapeutic results for symptoms related to sinus infections, inflammation, edema and those suffering with TMJ disorders.

How Many Treatments are Recommended for Optimal Results?

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.  We recommend monthly follow-up sessions to maintain the original results.
