Do you know that aesthetic plastic surgery increased by 63% since 2020? Outside of liposuction, the biggest increase was in abdominoplasty, buttock augmentation, and breast lifts.
If you are looking for a treatment to get rid of the unwanted cellulite, remove wrinkles, or tone your skin, have you heard of Lypossage? Imagine that you can feel and look better without the scalpel.
Still interested? Read on to find out what is Lypossage, how it works, and what are the main benefits of this body slimming treatment.
What Is Lypossage?
Lypossage is a type of noninvasive body treatment that aims to remove the signs of fat, bulge, and cellulite and at the same time improve the skin’s tone. Lypossage massage uses techniques from two massage modalities: deep lymphatic drainage and deep tissue massage. And it is performed by a trained massage therapist.
The primary role of Lypossage is to reduce fat tissue from the buttocks, hip, and abdomen as well as back or bra fat and love handles. That is why Lypossage is performed on three specific areas, also called ‘zones’, of the body.
This covers the lower part of the body, including the lower abdomen, hips, tights, and buttocks. The work in zone 1 aims to improve posture, muscle, and skin tone. It also aims to cleanse the lymphatic system, enhance circulation and reduce cellulite.
This covers the upper part of the body, including the décolletage (chest and neck area), arms, and upper abdomen. It cleanses the lymphatic system and improves circulation in the upper body. In addition, zone 2 work helps to improve the posture, reduce fat tissue in the arms and upper abdomen and firm the bust area.
This covers the head, face, and neck. The work in this zone provides the effects of a facelift. It lifts and tones the tissue, reduces the signs of wrinkles, and improves skin tone and texture.
How Does Lypossage Work?
Because Lypossage combines techniques from lymphatic massage, it cleanses the build-up of unwanted lymphatic fluids from the body. The deeper strokers used in deep tissue massage help to break up the muscle adhesions smoothing the skin.
Lypossage assists with muscle toning, firming, and the lifting of sagging tissue. As with any massage treatment, Lypossage boosts your mental and physical health.
While surgical body sculpturing procedures are usually done in one session, Lypossage is a long-term strategy. Lypossage treatments are usually done in 30-minute sessions. Each session is focused on a specific body zone.
The treatment program may include a series of 18 treatments, performed between 2 to 4 times a week. The whole program may last from 6 to 9 weeks depending on each individual. Patience is key here because it can take around 10 sessions to see the first results.
However, the results can be quite dramatic after the 10 sessions. In addition, other treatments may be recommended to further enhance your transformation.
Benefits of Lypossage
The primary benefits of Lypossage are the toning and firming of the body and removing cellulite and other unwanted fat tissue. As a result, many patients find that Lypossage helps with dimension loss.
Each person is different, therefore no one can guarantee the exact results. A loss of several inches in the waist area has been seen. Some women reported going down one or two dress sizes while maintaining their weight.
However, one of the main benefits of Lypossage may be a boost in your mental health. You will feel better thanks to the therapeutic benefits of massage as well as you will start seeing your body slimming. This alone can motivate you to make some healthy lifestyle changes.
Although starting a new diet or exercise program is not recommended during the Lypossage treatment program, you may find that you want to eat better and move your body. Adding organic, whole foods, and reducing the consumption of processed foods, refined sugars and preservatives can speed up the desired outcomes.
Decreasing sugary drinks and increasing the intake of water can also boost the cleansing process. Hydration is extremely important for the elasticity and tone of the skin. It also helps to remove toxins from the body, ensuring there is no lymphatic waste build-up.
Is Lypossage Safe?
Lypossage is performed by a skilled massage therapist who has been certified under the Lypossage name. Although Lypossage is a contouring modality, it is safe. It is also noninvasive, contrary to other types of sculpting techniques such as liposuction.
Are you asking yourself: does Lypossage massage hurt? The answer is no.
Lypossage treatment is pleasant the same way a massage treatment is. Therefore, it is beneficial for most individuals.
It is also safer than other body contouring surgical procedures. And it can even be used before and after the surgery to enhance healing.
There are contraindications of Lypossage for specific health conditions, including:
- Acute inflammation
- Skin lesions
- Hearth conditions
- Varicose Veins
Although Lypossage is not recommended during pregnancy, it can be performed one month after giving natural birth or three months after a C-section.
Ways to Maintain Your Results
You may want to make changes to your diet or exercise habits to keep the results you received from the lypossage massage. Additional Lypossage treatment procedures may be recommended to prevent the build-up in cellulite-prone areas. Speak with your Lypossage massage therapist to have a maintenance plan tailored to your individual needs.
