This treatment involves using a small ventouse, which is a glass tube with various shaped ends depending on the desired result of the treatment, to create a vacum on the skins surface. The client will feel a gentle suction on the skin but the sensation is actually quite enjoyable.  The basis of the treatment is mechanical lymphatic drainage which aids the removal of waste products, drains lymph from the tissues,  and improves the colour and appearance of the skin.
This machine is one of my favourites because it benefits so many skin types and conditions.  The only skin it is not suitable for is very sensitive skins with high vascularity.
Benefits of Vacuum Suction treatment used during facials
  • Improves lymphatic circulation within the skin which has a detoxing effect
  • Improves lymphatic flow helping to reduce puffiness
  • Helps to brighten the skin by exfoliating dead skin cells and reducing dead skin cell build up on the surface of the skin 
  • Stimulates the microcirculation of the skin which brings blood to the epidermal layers therefore nourishing skin cells and contributing to faster skin cell turnover 
  • Aids cellular regeneration in sluggish and mature skins
  • Encourages better hydration in the epidermal layers by increasing blood flow  
  • Unblocks pores, especially around the T-Zone and can effectively remove blackheads if the skin is adequately prepared before hand

Vacum Suction is one of the many machines used at Puhoi Beauty & Spa to help people look their best.  We use it extensively during facials and also our body treatment series, and sometimes during massages too.  Vacum Suction is termed an electrical treatment because it is plugged into the wall, however no current is discharged onto the skin during this treatment, the current merely creates the sucking action for the machine.
