What is Vacuum Therapy?
Vacuum therapy is a non-invasive treatment to combat cellulite first level. It is used by means of sectioning devices that drain the adipose tissue by mobilizing the fat into the lymphatic system. Vacuum therapy also serves to eliminate fat and reduce cellulite, has exfoliating effects, provides elasticity to the skin and relaxes the muscles.
Why is it performed?
Vacuum therapy is used to remove the adipocytes that form adipose tissue, destroys the orange peel skin and promotes blood circulation. It also improves blood flow in the layers of the hypodermis, dermis and epidermis.
What does it consist of?
It is a technique that is used by massaging the area (from the inside to the outside) through suction, to facilitate the drainage of the liquid retained in the cells. To achieve this, a small device made of a sterilized transparent glass cup is used, which suctions the adipose tissue. Thus, the cup is placed on the area with cellulite and is programmed to start sucking gently. Sometimes the treatment is combined with radiofrequency and LED light energy, for better results, as these techniques improve the appearance of the skin and give it more elasticity.
To complete the treatment and eliminate cellulite, between 12 and 15 sessions are needed, depending on the degree and amount of cellulite the patient has. If the treatment is followed correctly, complementing it with a healthy and balanced diet and exercise, the results will be noticeable after the seventh session, more or less. Once the treatment is finished, it is recommended to do one session per month, to maintain the results.
Preparation for vacumotherapy
No preparation is necessary for vacuum therapy, but drinking plenty of fluids and maintaining a healthy lifestyle is recommended.
The patient is advised to drink plenty of water during and after vacum therapy, to help eliminate adiposities that are drained with urine. It is also recommended to avoid fatty foods and sugars, as well as excessive flour and salts, which can delay the elimination process.
