Chantal Ward, RN and co-owner of Clarity Medspa & Laser knows first-hand, the benefits of incorporating facial cupping alongside medical aesthetics & laser therapies. Often combined with “M.I.T. Infusion Facials” these combo-treatments not only deliver a more relaxing and pleasant experience, but offer patients superior results.
While the notion of facial cupping might make some a little nervous (envisioning large suction marks, like those seen on elite athletes), such is not the case when working with medical grade facial cups at Clarity Medspa in Toronto.
The cupping portion of Clarity Medspa facials incorporates pre-selected essential oils that are matched to the client’s skin. Using a gentle, gliding pattern of lymphatic drainage, teeny tiny cups are passed over the face, eye, neck and chest areas. This movement helps alleviate stagnation and fluid congestion, while addressing common concerns such as puffy eyes, under-eye bags, sinus congestion, poor circulation, wrinkles and fine lines.
Ms Ward is quick to add that “we only use cups that are sized specifically to treat delicate facial contours and are manufactured with medical grade silicone.”
“What appears to be the the differentiator with our cupping facials is the inclusion of magnetic infusion therapy. By adding these steps, we are able to push serums deeper into the dermis vs. having them simply sit on top (epidermis). Clients who come to us on a regular basis visibly see the difference over the same facials performed without the magnetic infusion or the facial cupping”.
When asked if there are aesthetic benefits to body cupping, experts are keen to discuss the merits of body cupping for troublesome fat and/or cellulite deposits. Ms. Ward’s business partner, Linda Murphy goes on to share how “at-home” body cupping can help accelerate fat reduction & cellulite laser treatments.
“Whether our patients are coming to us for Vanquish™, Exilis Elite™ or Coolsculpting™, we educate, demonstrate and highly encourage the use of home-cupping in the weeks shortly after they’ve had one of our body shaping laser treatments. By investing 3-4 minutes per day, results can be accelerated and more easily maintained.”
