INTRODUCTION TO FACE CUPPING LIFTING AND DRAINING

Drain Sinus, Facial & Head Congestion:

  • Helps reduce puffiness, removes stagnation, stimulates fibroblasts which stimulates collagen and elastin aiding in lifting and plumping the tissue.  European Countries are known for using facial cupping as face lifts due to its superior natural ability to increase a youthfulness to the tissue.
  • Filler injections can leave patients  with lumps or dimples under the skin and will sometimes chose to have facial cupping to eliminate or reduce these collections of fillers prior to their next injections.  Some have been so pleased with the results they abandoned their injections and replaced with having professional face cupping periodically and following up at home several days a week with face cupping in the shower.

 

FACELIFTING AND DRAINING PRE-INSTRUCTIONS

  • Average Treatment Time 15-20 Minutes
  • Light Pressure
  • Flash and Dynamic Only. (NO STATIC CUPPING ON FACE)
  • Slow, Rhythmic, Repetitive Movements
  • Proximal Areas Prior to Distal Areas (Starting at Neck moving up face.)
  • Follow Drainage Pathways
  • Flash Cupping ONLY on Anterior Neck due to Arteries
  • Complete an entire side of face prior to moving to opposite side for proper drainage
  • Have Client Clean Face Prior to cupping. No Makeup

FACE LIFTING AND DRAINING INSTRUCTIONS

 

  • Flash Cupping- Starting just under the clavicle 3-4 suction and releases from center chest  just under clavicle (supraclavicular nodes) and outwards one cup width apart with each suction and release.. This opens the drainage pathways.

 

  • Anterior Neck Front ( AKA Neck Pass)- Flash Cupping Only. Start below ear/jawline using suction and release  diagonally down the neck line towards the midline of the chest just below the clavicle. Follow the SCM for first pass. Second Pass one cup width behind it.  Third Pass one cup width behind second pass. Repeat Each Pass 3 times. We will repeat this later and will call it the “Neck Pass”.
  • Below Chin: Start Under Chin and drain towards jawline. Dynamic or Flash.  Perform “Neck Pass” after each Chin Pass. Perform 3 Chin Passes.

 

  • Jawline- Under Lip-  Dynamic Pass from Chin to earlobe. Detach and repeat 3 passes then perform “Neck Pass”

 

  • Upper Lip- Start at Midline of upper lip using dynamic pass to side of mouth and detach. Repeat 3 passes.
  • Cheek – Start where you ended with Upper Lip. Dynamic Pass towards ear then detach. Return to starting point and repeat 3 times.  Start another pass ½ to 1 cup width above this and repeat until you have made this pass across the entire cheek area 3 times each.  Finish with “Neck Pass”
  • Forehead- Start between eyebrows. Dynamic pass upwards to hairline. Detach cup and return to starting point. Repeat 3 passes. Now Dynamic Pass from Centerline forehead laterally toward hairline at the side of forehead.  Repeat each pass 3 times. Include all areas of this side of forehead with 3 passes for each area. When you have completed, then dynamic pass down the side of face along the earline and then finish with “Neck Pass”

 

  • Under Eye- Very Small Tiny Cup. Flash Cupping Only. Start near nose just under lower eyelash. Do not stretch this area as it is delicate.  Very light suction and release here. Suction and Release towards outside of eye area toward hairline. Repeat 3 passes.
  • Above Eye- Very Small Tiny Cup.  Flash Cupping Only. Start near the nose just under the eyebrow on the eyelid. Very light suction and release here. Suction and Release toward temporal area just past the eye line towards hairline. Repeat 3 Passes.
  • Eyebrow- Start over the eyebrow closest to the midline. Dynamic pass over eyebrow towards outer edge of eyebrow.  Detach and repeat 3 passes. Dynamic pass down earline followed with “Neck Pass”.
