First of all, the doctor uses a wipe to apply a protective gel to the zone to be treated.
The hand piece is applied to the area to be treated. The fatty mass is positioned using suction and the cooling process starts.
The cooling lasts about 60 minutes. You can read, listen to music or simply rest during this time.
As soon as the session is over, and the hand pieces removed, the doctor or the assistant will massage the treated area for ten minutes.
During the session, you might feel ‘traction’ or pulling, and the skin being pinched during the placement of the hand pieces. Some soreness might arise after several minutes of cooling. You can go back to your normal activities straight after the session.
After the session it needs:
– Keep well hydrated ( drink 8-10 glasses of water per day ).
– Follow a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet, and daily exercise ( with a minimum 30 minutes walking per day ).
– Avoid consuming coffee and alcohol during the process of lymphatic drainage.
– Carry on with treatments which encourage lymphatic drainage such as massage and anti-cellulite creams.
