Facial Cupping is a type of skincare technique in which skin experts stimulate the blood vessels to improve the skin's blood circulation. The blood flow will improve the skin's overall health. If you think Facial Cupping sounds like a foreign medical procedure, think again. This is a simple skin care method developed over a century ago. This technique was first used by the Japanese. The way this is done differs from person to person, but basically, the specialist probes into the cheeks and the hairline using either a fine or medium-sized probe called a cannula.

The probe is then placed at the base of the hairline and the probe is gently probed up and down to find areas where the skin is damaged or dull. The probe then sucks the blood away from these damaged areas to improve the skin's circulation. This technique is effective because it improves the blood vessels, thus rejuvenating the skin cells. This results in a plumper, firmer looking face in as little as two weeks. The facial toner and moisturizer used during this process should be of high quality.

Facial Cupping is a well known and popular form of skincare in Asia. Facial Cupping can be performed on any area of your skin with noticeable discoloration or slack skin. However, it works best on areas that have fine lines or dark circles. This procedure should never be done on the nose, ear lobes, and around the eyes as the delicate skin in those areas may be damaged if too much pressure is applied. The patient must also be sure to wear minimal makeup as the procedure is a bit messy. The whole procedure usually takes less than two hours and it doesn't take much time before you're feeling refreshed.

To make sure you get the most out of Facial Cupping, the professional conducting the treatment should be experienced and skilled in this type of procedure. He or she should also be well-trained in the use of equipment and products to enhance the effects. He or she will also guide you through the entire process, answering any questions you may have. If you have any pre-existing skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema or other skin disorders, you should not undergo Facial Cupping. If you are pregnant, nursing or have any type of cardiac or circulatory problems, you should avoid this procedure altogether.

If you decide to try Facial Cupping, you must remember to ask your therapist or practitioner to explain the steps to be taken after the procedure. You should also ask what products you should use during and after the procedure. Although the overall effects can be quite beneficial, you may experience some mild to moderate side effects such as swelling, redness or a temporary tightening of the skin. However, these usually subside within a few days and are not severe. For example, a few days after receiving this procedure, some people might feel a slight tightening of their lips.

Normally, you would need to cleanse your face with warm to hot water using a mild soap, and then apply a natural oil or cream to seal the moisture into your skin. It is preferable to have someone with facial knowledge to perform this process, as it can be very difficult for the uninitiated to obtain a proper, even skin-tight seal. Also, it's important to make sure you moisturize afterwards using a good, quality moisturizing cream. Make sure to store any excess moisturizer, and try to avoid using this procedure right after exercising, sleeping or drinking alcohol.
