The pressotherapy is a cosmetic treatment that aims to carry out lymphatic drainage and thus help to tackle cellulite. Its pressurized air mechanism is conducive to improve the return circulation and relieve those problems resulting from a venous disorder causing the so-called tired legs or spider veins.

This medical-aesthetic technique is applied by placing special boots that completely cover the legs and buttocks. These boots exert alternating upward pressure, i.e. from the feet to the hips, stimulating circulation and lymphatic drainage. In this way, fats, liquids and toxins that cause cellulite, edemas and varicose veins are eliminated.

Pressure therapy with IMPRESS LITE MED is a new generation intelligent system which we apply at Clínica Rigo in Tarragona. This procedure is much more than a cosmetic treatment, as it addresses clinical problems that are the cause of subsequent aesthetic concerns.

Pressotherapy is indicated for people who want to solve both circulatory and aesthetic problems, as in the case of cellulite or obesity. Body contouring with this procedure improves the condition of sagging skin and lack of muscle tone.

Why use Pressotherapy treatment?

It is important to remember that the correct use of pressotherapy with professional medical devices has several benefits. Some of the pThe main ones are:


Improves the appearance of cellulite and skin tone

By boosting the supply of fresh, oxygenated blood to the tissues, there is a significant improvement in cellulite and skin quality, leaving it firm and toned.


Helps slimming and body contouring

The improvement of the lymphatic and circulatory systems will allow the rapid elimination of excess fluid, reducing the volume and swelling of the treated areas in just one session.


Promotes overall health and well-being

A healthy, functioning lymphatic system will have a positive impact on the immune, digestive and nervous systems, as waste, toxins and pathogens are removed from the body more quickly and effectively.


Stimulates fat dissolution

Pressure therapy acts on fat tissue and dissolves fat cells with heat radiation. Regular inflation and deflation and variation of air pressure can accelerate fat burning. Helps accelerate blood circulation and promote metabolism.

Pressotherapy technology does not heat the surface of the body. Instead, it heats the inside of the body that is 4 to 7 cm below the skin. This is excellent, as this is where the persistent fat deposit and major blood vessels are located.


Prevents and relieves venous disorders

The main objective of pressotherapy is to alleviate the problems of swollen and painful legs, oedemas, varicose veins, ulcers, etc. caused by venous insufficiency problems. Pressure therapy promotes the transport of fluids within the body, normalising venous circulation, eliminating lymphatic stasis and thus preventing related conditions.
