Post-Lipo Care Service: Lymphatic Drainage Therapy

April 30, 2020

Areas in and around a liposuction-treated area can sometimes develop post-procedure lumps. This is common and natural side effect. In addition, cannula tends to form grooves which causes pooling of fluids, contributing to swelling of the tissue. In order to let the fluid flow into the lymph vessels and help relieve pain and swelling, Dream Spa Medical utilizes a combination of Ultrasonic Cavitation technology and manual techniques to perform the Lymphatic Drainage Treatment.

Lymphatic Drainage is a therapeutic procedure designed specifically to relieve pain and reduce inflammation. 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. 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.

Post Operative Lymphatic Drainage massage is also called lymphatic massage, lymph massage, post liposuction massage, or post-lipo care. This procedure is an exceptionally 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.

Ultrasound helps reduce inflammation in the affected areas while 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. By combining lymphatic drainage massage with ultrasound waves and cavitation, heat is generated and allows the fibrosis or hardened tissue to easily break up and move through your lymph system. A combination that leads to rapid and efficient recovery.
