Vacuum Ultrasound (Biocell)
A massage technique of mechanical suction and rolling on the cellulite affected areas. Vacuum massage creates a partial vacuum on the skin surface and sucks up the skin between rollers located around a suction cap. While the suction cap moves, the skin fold is rolled and massaged. Suction cups of different sizes are used depending on area being treated. Vacuum leads to creation of negative pressure. This negative pressure is applied onto the cellulite affected areas.
The negative suction pressure created by the vacuum mobilizes the fatty tissue and causes loosening of the connective tissue strands there by reducing the dimpled appearance of the skin. Thus vacuum does not actually remove the fat in the cellulite affected areas but only makes the appearance smooth. The advantage of this method is that in addition to the positive effects of vacuum, the massage therapy generates heat and causes breakdown of the fats; it also stretches the connective tissue vertically and improves the microcirculation within the skin capillaries.
