Vacuum RF Therapy is one of several therapies used to tackle the hard-to-shift, dimpled fat often found on thighs, knees, buttocks, stomach, and the tops of arms.
A vacuum is produced around the area by pulling the cellulite away from the muscle, enhancing the effects of massage or exercise while promoting blood flow and lymphatic drainage. Similar to the traditional Chinese practice of “cupping,” vacuum RF therapy is a popular alternative medicine.
