Lipomassage is a powerful, and effective way to flush lymphatic fluid out of the body. It is most often used to improve immune system functioning, or to remove excess lymph fluid - a condition also knows as lymphedema.
Lymphedema, which often causes visible swelling due to lymph fluid
retention, has many causes. Anyone experiencing lymphedema should be in consultation with a physician.
One of the increasingly common uses of lymphatic drainage massage is as a means of controlling post surgery lymphedema. Many cosmetic procedures fromliposuction to breast augmentation or reduction, can result in excess lymph fluid accumulating in the body. Lymphatic drainage may be the most effective natural means of addressing common post-surgical lymphedema. It has been shown to significantly reduce swelling which can become one of the most uncomfortable aspects of the patient's recovery.
What is Lipomassage?
Lipomassage is the science of cellular stimulation. Through the principle of MÉCANO-STIMULATION, the skin’s surface is stimulated to generate a deep biological response. Developed in France and used in Europe for many years, Lipomassage was the first mechanized treatment for cellulite to be approved by the FDA. Endermologie treatments are a 100% natural, non-invasive, scientifically proven method to reduce cellulite, improve skin tone and re-contour the body.
How Does Lipomassage Work?
Lipomassage stimulates fat cell emptying (lipolysis) in the targeted area of the body. A combination of rolling and suction is used to massage and shape the skin and its underlying structures. The skin and the subcutaneous fat cell layer are mobilized and circulation is increased.
Lipomassage treatments facilitate improved lymphatic drainage, which eliminates metabolic toxins from the tissues. The increase in oxygen and available nutrients stimulates the body’s fat elimination processes and the fat cells begin to shrink. The connective tissue walls are gently stretched, which encourages the fibrous tissue cells to produce better quality collagen and elastin, thus toning and firming the body.
