About Vacuum Therapy: Is It Safe And Does It Work?

Sharing is caring!

If you’re wondering if vacuum therapy is right for you, this article will help you learn more about the procedure so that you can make the right choice.

Vacuum therapy

They say that vacuum therapy is the best and most effective way to get rid of cellulite and therapy is painless safe! However, is it? We will reveal to you what it’s about and how this form of therapy differs from the others. Why all the noise and effort around cellulite? How many times have you heard just those claims that men don’t notice it at all? However, for this article,  let’s let their opinion go. We women know it’s there and it’s unattractive. We care that they don’t see it. As well, we care even more that it’s said everywhere that almost all women have it and that those who don’t have it are a dying species. It bothers us! One transient pimple on the forehead can shake self-confidence, let alone a whole layer of fat on the thighs, legs, and buttocks. Hence the determination to tackle these pesky issues!

Probably the main means of reducing cellulite is through a massage. Logically, we want to somehow smooth out the unevenness on our skin by kneading and massaging. For this reason, there are several types of anti-cellulite massage and several different cellulite massagers. Most of them knead and press the tissue to break down fat deposits. However, vacuum massage is somewhat different in this approach to the problem!

What is vacuum therapy?

Unlike other types of massages, this doesn’t involve pressing the cellulite, but in a way pulling it to the surface. Vacuum cellulite therapy can be performed with special devices in beauty salons which is followed by an LPG treatment. However, there are also hand massagers with vacuum and vacuum suction cups that are practical and simple. With hand massagers, it’s possible to do this type of massage at home. We will focus on this type of anti-cellulite treatment.

First of all, let’s see what’s the point of vacuum therapy and why it is effective against cellulite

The point is in the cause itself. Cellulite isn’t only a consequence of obesity. It’s present in women who don’t have an excess of fat deposits. We can say that their problem then is in the deformed structure of the subcutaneous connective tissue. This usually happens due to poor circulation, and the culprit is an inactive lifestyle and too much sitting (hence the most cellulite on the thighs and buttocks). Another reason for this deformity is the diet and the accumulation of fat deposits and toxins.

Body shaping

When it comes to body shaping, people keep looking for aesthetic procedures.

These procedures differ from cosmetic surgeries because they have fewer risks and side effects without the need for major delays. One such contouring procedure is vacuum butt therapy. Unlike traditional Brazilian butt lifting, vacuum butt therapy promises to help tone and tighten the buttocks without the use of incisions and fat grafting. Although the lack of breaks and scars is much more appealing, vacuum therapy does not offer as significant effects in terms of buttock sculpture.

Does vacuum therapy work for lifting and shaping the buttocks?

Vacuum therapy at its core offers the effects of a deep massage. The procedure can affect the toning of the buttocks in the following ways:

  • reduction of muscle tension
  • increasing lymph flow to remove toxins and retain water
  • exfoliating the skin, making it smoother and more toned
  • stimulating the middle layers of the skin for enhanced toning effects
  • reduces the appearance of cellulite
  • breaks down cellulite
  • improving lymphatic drainage
  • improving the texture and tone of the treated

When performed in several sessions a week, you will notice that your skin is continually getting tighter.

Is vacuum therapy dangerous?

Wondering if vacuum therapy is dangerous? Vacuum butt therapy also poses fewer risks and side effects than surgical butt augmentation without extensive downtime. As it’s a non-invasive procedure, it’s virtually pain-free; though, you may experience a slight pinching sensation as the cups are being applied or removed. After the treatment, you can expect mild vacuum therapy side effects, such as swelling and tightness in the area treated, both of which are said to dissipate quickly.

How long do vacuum therapy buttocks enhancement results last?

The results are not permanent. Once you stop going for vacuum therapy treatments, your skin is likely to return to the way it was before. If you’re looking for more permanent results, you may want to consider talking to your doctor about surgery. They can help you determine if you’re the right candidate for invasive procedures.

Should you buy your butt vacuum therapy machine to do the treatments yourself at home or go to a professional?

Not many people are aware that it’s possible to buy a kit that includes a butt vacuum therapy machine and a training guide for people who want to do the treatment at home on their own, rather than depending on going to an expert for each session. Both options have their advantages, and it’s up to you to judge for yourself. We know that a specialist will be able to treat and guide you directly without the need for any training. On the other hand, if you have your butt vacuum therapy machine at home, you will save a lot of money. Another advantage of owning your machine is that you will be able to achieve better results in the long run because you will be able to apply as many treatments as you want. Although you’re limited by the size of your wallet in terms of the number of sessions you can do in a beauty salon, owning your machine will allow you an unlimited number of sessions. Since we know that the results of vacuum lifting largely depend on the number of sessions received, this is a significant advantage. It’s up to you and your situation to decide what’s best.
