Post Operative Lymphatic Drainage massage is also called lymphatic massage, lymph massage, post liposuction massage or post-lipo care. This procedure is a very light stimulation to the body that encourages lymph flow. Post Surgical Lymphatic Drainage is good for detoxification, edema, pre- and post-plastic surgery and post-liposuction. It can also help with cellulite treatments, fibrosis (lumps that form under the skin about one to two weeks after a surgical procedure), scar tissue, spider veins, and reduce swelling after cosmetic facelift or blepharoplasty.
Lymphatic Drainage is a therapeutic procedure designed specifically to relieve pain and reduce inflammation. Any person that submits themselves to a cosmetic surgical procedure will experience great levels of inflammation as a side-effect of the work performed in that area. The process of lymphatic drainage allows for your body to release that liquid accumulated under the skin and in turn reduce your healing time and diminish pain.
The lymph system is a slow-moving system of vessels and lymph nodes that is supplementary to the body's system of blood circulation. By stimulating the lymphatic system through this treatment, the body helps drain puffy, swollen tissues, supports the body's immune system, helps the body heal from surgery, and carries away excess fluid, waste, virus and toxins. Post Surgical Lymphatic Drainage should have a very soothing, relaxing effect to relieve swelling, numbness, bruising and pain. It should also help the appearance of the treated area.
Dream Spa Medical Utilizes a combination of Ultrasonic Cavitation technology and manual techniques to perform the Lymphatic Drainage Treatment. It is virtually painless, and employs a deep and constant pressure throughout the area intervened, allowing the main channels “lymph nodes”, to carry and gradually evacuate all liquid remaining after surgery. By combining this process with ultrasound waves and cavitation, heat is generated and allows the fibroisis or hardened tissue to easily break up and move through your lymph system. A combination that leads to rapid and efficient recovery.
Ultrasound also helps reduce inflammation in the affected areas and the lymphatic massage serves to drain all the retained liquid from those areas. That liquid will later be eliminated from your body through your urine. In addition, Ultrasonic Therapy forces a powerful sound wave to the fat cell membranes. The fat cell membrane succumbs to the pressure, is reduced to liquid and is expelled through the body’s normal metabolic method.
