The benefits of vacuum therapy

The goal of the vacuotherapy treatment - also called ventosaterapy - is to detach the skin from the muscle and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the region. However, the list of benefits does not stop there. Vacuotherapy also:

  • Eliminates liquids in the abdominal region and legs.
  • Helps combat cellulite on the buttocks, belly, flanks, and thighs.

  • It improves the appearance of the skin.

How is the procedure done?

To perform the vacuum therapy, initially the esthetician will slide the suction cups over the body using suction movements. The intensity and the difference in pressure can be controlled by the professional during the session, depending on the patient's sensitivity.

Whenever possible, the sessions should be performed by an esthetician or dermatofunctional physiotherapist. In addition, the frequency should be 1 to 4 times a month, lasting 20 to 40 minutes per region.

In this sense, vacuum therapy can be done in isolation, or associated with other aesthetic treatments, such as radiofrequency, modeling massage and lipocavitation, for example. On the other hand, the device cannot be used in cases of varicose veins, infection, wounds, hematomas, and other skin problems. Finally, it is necessary to undergo an evaluation before facing the suction protocol.

Who should do the vacuotherapy ?
