Lymphatic Massage

A lymphatic massage is a specialized procedure that helps the lymph system work more efficiently. Specifically when done following surgery, the treated area is given special attention to speed up recovery and provide smoother results. There are many benefits to lymphatic massage. It:

  1. Reduces swelling and helps prevent fluid collection

  2. Promotes the flushing of toxins

  3. Prevents the formation of scar tissue and fibrosis

  4. Improves circulation of blood and lymphatic fluid

  5. Stimulates wound healing

  6. May reduce discomfort

After a procedure like liposuction, tissue can produce excess lymphatic fluid as the body reacts to the traumatic action of the insertion of cannulas and removal of fat.

Even with less intrusive procedures, some patients may experience a degree of tissue disruption, leading to an accumulation of excess fluid, called edema. In some cases, pockets of fibrosis may form, leading to hardened areas of scar tissue.

A general recommendation is to have three to five massage treatments, but some patients may experience benefits from as few as one to two treatments. Your cosmetic surgeon can advise you as to whether lymphatic massage will benefit you following your liposuction or other surgical procedure.

yeso therapy

Body casting has been a popular slimming technique in Latin America, the Caribbean and Spain for years, but it was not practiced in the US until recent years.

Yeso therapy involves casting a part of the body to sculpt it. Casts are made of natural fibers that contain skin-nourishing compounds like mineral salts, algae and other extracts. The fibers bind specific areas—most commonly abs, arms and thighs—to provide compression and generate heat. The heat helps skin to absorb both the nutrients infused in the cast fibers as well as a nutritive cream that is applied before the fibers to encourage increased fat metabolism.

The process begins with your licensed esthetician will apply the cast, which takes about an hour. For optimal absorption, the casting applied in a yeso therapy session should stay on for at least four but no more than eight hours. That means you will be taking off the cast at home. We provide written instructions for removing the cast. You’d be required to send updated pictures of your progress once you have removed.

Most clients will see noticeable results after a single yeso treatment. However, for more dramatic results and to maintain a toned tummy and thighs, yeso therapy is typically done in 6 to 15 sessions (depending on client goals). The number of sessions required depends on several other factors, including overall health, genetics and diet. Once your initial treatment series is done, we recommend a single treatment each monthly to assist you with maintaining if need be.
