A warm moist towel is used to prepare the skin, then a brief invigorating massage is given to the décolleté, neck and face.
A Ridoki roller is used to stimulate the surface of the skin. Ridoki is an Asian facial roller tool that has little prongs on the surface that activates the circulation and tonicity of the skin.
Facial cupping is a type of non-invasive therapy used to tighten, smoothen, and contour facial skin. Similar to body cupping, a gentle suction pulls up the surface layer of skin. An anti-inflammatory response to the suction-caused micro-trauma to the tissue is triggered, which increases in blood flow. The blood that reaches the area carries oxygen and nutrients that boost skin repair.
When not to use this treatment:
It is not advised to seek this treatment if one is taking anticoagulants, or has broken, fragile or inflamed skin.
This includes active breakouts, rashes, very bad acne flare-ups, recent cosmetic surgery and sores.
In case of Botox or other facial injections, a 2 week minimum wait is imperative before receiving this treatment.
A potential side effect of cupping is mild, temporary skin discoloration. It looks like a bruise but is non-painful; the skin should look normal within 3-10 days.
