The trend of Modernized Facial Cupping Massage is based on the ancient art of Chinese Cupping, an alternative, anti-ageing therapy that uses suction cups in movement to stimulate your skin and muscles. It can be done on your face or body.
The Bellabaci hand-squeezable suction Facial Cups has become a major trend, which creates negative pressure on the skin and promotes increased blood circulation, relieves build-up, promotes cell repair, and aids in other skin rejuvenation.
What’s the difference between the Facial and Body Cupping trend?
The Bellabaci Facial Cups are smaller and softer. They are designed to be used on delicate areas such as around the eyes, chin and cheeks and even decollate.
“Over time this facial massage ritual improves the complexion, reduces the appearance of spider veins and diminishes fine lines and wrinkles,” says Keren Trabelsi, Professional Therapist and the CEO of Bellabaci International. “Body Cupping, on the other hand, is primarily used to treat Muscle Aches, Fibromyalgia, Indigestion and Stress.”
How does the Facial Cupping trend work?
The suction creates a vacuum that brings blood flow from the arteries to the capillaries. This drains excess fluid and expels toxins allowing fresh oxygen to the area. This stimulates the skin cells and activates a small amount of inflammation, called Sterile-Inflammation flooding the area with white blood cells, platelets, and other wellness aids.
What are the benefits of the Cupping Therapy trend?
- Increase blood flow and boost collagen formation
- Excess fluid will drain faster, relieving under-eye bags and puffiness
- Broken facial capillaries will diminish
- Dull skin appears more youthful
- Targets the visible signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles
- Combined with active aromatherapy oils, such as the Bellabaci Genies, the Cups can penetrate deeper, increasing results
