How does pressotherapy help with cellulite reduction and prevention?

  • Pressotherapy helps reduce cellulite by boosting circulation, lymph drainage and detoxification, which increases  the effectiveness of other cellulite treatments that focus on fat removal
  • Cellulite is partially a problem of poor circulation/water retention and consequent toxin accumulation/inflammation, so anything that boosts blood circulation/lymph drainage (and thereby aids detoxification and inflammation reduction) can decrease cellulite too.
  • Different women have different types of cellulite. If your type of cellulite is characterised by excess water retention/inflammation you will experience good results after a pressotherapy course.
  • Conversely, if your cellulite is characterised by a lot of fat accumulation, lack of skin firmness or a lot of fibrosis (connective tissue hardening), then a pressotherapy session will provide poor results and will have to be combined with, or replaced by, a vigorous cellulite treatment, such as high intensity radiofrequency and/or ultrasound.
  • In this way, pressotherapy can enhance the effectiveness of literally any cellulite treatment by expediting the transportation of fat released by the adipocytes (fat cells) away from the cellulite tissues.
  • Contrary to popular belief, fat that is not removed from an area after a lipolytic (=fat releasing) cellulite treatment, is typically re-absorbed by the adipocytes, thereby diminishing the effectiveness of the treatment. Because pressotherapy helps prevent this re-absorption, it is the ideal companion to all other cellulite treatments as it enhances their effectiveness.
  • Because all types of cellulite are characterised by water retention (only the severity of water retention varies), you will always experience some results with pressotherapy, even as a sole treatment. Only the degree of improvement will vary.
  • Of course, if you combine pressotherapy with a lipolytic or skin firming cellulite treatment, as mentioned above, you will always experience good results, regardless of your type of cellulite.
