Gua Sha therapy, as a wonderful work of traditional Chinese medicine, has been spread for a long time in history due to its simplicity and ease of use, quick results and no side effects. Facial scraping is different from body scraping, and body scraping will cause a Sha point. Generally, you have to wait for the Sha point to fade before performing the next Gua Sha, about a week or so. But facial scraping generally does not produce Sha points, so it is difficult to determine how many days to scrape once, but facial skin is more sensitive, so it is generally recommended not to be too frequent~
