In order to remove the dissolved color particles faster, we offer lymphatic drainage to the tattoo removal.
For this treatment, you put on cuffs with air chambers around your legs, arms or abdomen. As soon as the device is turned on, pressure waves are created that rhythmically massage your body and at the same time stimulate the lymphatic system. You lie comfortably on a couch for half an hour and can relax, dream, listen to music or read something. The treatment is completely painless.
What exactly is lymphatic drainage?
Manual lymphatic drainage is a technique, originally performed by hand, that removes excess lymphatic fluid from areas of the body. It attempts to stimulate the lymph nodes, which should improve drainage. Originally, manual lymphatic drainage was used exclusively for people with severe diseases of the lymphatic system or after serious operations. In the meantime, MLD is also increasingly used for cosmetic purposes and wellness.
How is lymphatic drainage performed?
Lymphatic drainage was originally performed manually with the hands and is reserved only for medical professionals, such as physiotherapists and masseurs. In the meantime, modern technology and science in recent years have managed to develop technical products that allow it to be performed mechanically. The lymph nodes are stimulated before and during the lymphatic drainage by means of intermittent, wave-like movement of the machine. By pumping up and moving the pressure chambers, the lymph fluid is moved away upwards. This is done from the feet up to the hips where large lymph nodes are located.
Where does the lymph fluid go?
The fluid is excreted through the kidneys, the bladder and partly the skin, which the client usually does not even notice.
Who can be lymphated?
In principle, anyone. However, there are restrictions that must be observed. Accordingly, patients with malignant tumors, acute heart diseases, open wounds and wound roses, febrile accompanied bacterial and viral patients may not be treated. Lymphatic drainage in such a case could promote pathological germs in the body. In case of acute heart disease it could even lead to cardiac overload. It should also be avoided in case of fresh fractures.
How long is the lymphatic treatment?
Lymphatic drainage by machine lasts 30 minutes. The client lies on a soft and comfortable couch in one of the treatment rooms. During this time, customers can relax and unwind. How about reading a nice book or listening to good music?
Does a lymph drainage hurt?
No, many customers report that machine lymphatic drainage is a very pleasant method and that the pressure is hardly noticeable.
Do I notice anything after the treatment?
The great thing about lymphatic drainage is that the lymphatic system is still activated for several hours after a treatment and removes more lymph fluid. The effect is impressive!
I had a tattoo removed, will lymph drainage help me?
During the removal of a tattoo, it is not uncommon for soft tissue swelling to occur, which often disturbs the client. As soon as the acute inflammatory phase is over, lymphatic drainage can ensure that the excess tissue fluid is removed. It can also help to reduce tissue swelling after a fresh tattoo has been stitched.
