It is based on two benefits proven recognized techniques: Deep massage and Negative pressure. Vacuum therapy is used to tackle the hard-to-shift, dimpled fat that is often found on thighs, knees, buttocks, stomach and the tops of arms. A vacuum is created around the problem area, lifting the cellulite away from the muscle, thus encouraging blood flow, stimulating lymphatic drainage and amplifying the effects of massage or exercise.
This Non-Invasive technique is a modern version of the ancient Chinese art of “cupping”, which causes a deep tissue massage, moving the swelling and accumulated fluids towards the lymph glands, generating local heat on the muscle fibers, vessel dilation, and improving of the local lymphatic drainage. In addition, it directly stimulates the fibroblast causing an increment in the production of collagen, elastin and reticulin improving tightening and texture of the treated area.
