When we talk about pressotherapy, we usually imagine a person wearing padded boots. Perhaps also in a girdle with the same aspect surrounding a large part of the trunk, but rarely do we visualize pressotherapy in the upper extremities.
Many people do not even know that there are pressure therapy sleeves for arms specially designed to work on that area, because the arms also deserve care and also suffer from lymphatic, circulatory or cellulite disorders. And of course, we also like to show them off in good shape, pretty and toned. How to achieve it? This is what we are going to see in this article, with a series of tips for you to take care of them, including pressotherapy for arms, from which you can benefit whether you are a woman or a man.
First, you must evaluate the state in which your arms are. Some people who are considerably overweight or have a certain degree of obesity tend to have arms with a lot of excess skin and even stretch marks, the result of having undergone a strict weight loss program. Obviously, in such a case, pressotherapy is not a magic wand. Sagging like that can only be repaired by cosmetic surgery. This operation is known as brachioplasty.
Yes, you can use this treatment after the postoperative period, to oxygenate the tissues and tone the arms. Now, if you do not have this problem but you do have somewhat flaccid or swollen arms, pressotherapy for arms could help you greatly improve their appearance. And there is something else: you can also use pressotherapy for the lymphedema arm.
Lymphedema is a disorder of the Lymphatic System that can cause fluid accumulation in both the upper and lower extremities., being able to affect both or only one of them. Of course, before using any pressotherapy garment, including the arm sleeve, you must rule out certain contraindications:
You can consult our pressotherapy contraindications guide For more information, although for greater safety and if you still have health concerns, we advise you to consult a doctor before using pressotherapy.
Of course, we cannot forget that in addition to using pressotherapy to speed up the recovery of the arms after surgery or liposuction or to treat lymphedema, you can also use the presotherapy to treat cellulite in the arms. Cellulite in the arm is produced in the same way as in any other part of the body, due to an accumulation of subcutaneous fat. This is mostly concentrated around the biceps and makes the arm look flaccid.
Also, if we pinch in that area, we will see that it has the same “orange peel” appearance that appears on the legs or buttocks, due to exactly the same problem. And this not only makes the appearance of the arm ugly, but also makes it difficult for you to wear certain items of clothing, which can tighten in the area, making your arm look like a string of sausages. That's not how you want that t-shirt you love to feel like, is it? But do not be alarmed or despair, because arm cellulite is much easier to reduce or even eliminate completely, and without going under the knife.

What does presotherapy for arms consist of?
Pressotherapy for arms is very simple to use and is also a non-invasive or painful method that is applied externally but with internal effects.
You only have to adjust the sleeve around the arm and select a specific program on the device or pressotherapy machine. If you feel that it is too tight or uncomfortable once the pressure begins to be applied, loosen the garment a little or adjust the pressure on the pressotherapy device. The air chambers will fill sequentially, applying a gentle but constant and rhythmic compression and decompression massage.
This is how pressotherapy in the arms works whether you go to an aesthetic or physiotherapy center or if you have your own pressotherapy home equipment. With this type of massage, fluid retention is redirected and a good part of cellulite is dissolved. And since the armpits are under the arms, a key point in the Lymphatic System, this technique also achieves the treatment of arm lymphedema and toxins that are clogging the lymphatic ducts are channeled. Does pressotherapy reduce cellulite on the arms? Yes, in the same way that it does in the rest of the body, but you must be clear about what we have already explained in other blog articles. This therapy is an extra help, complementary to other measures that you must take if you really want to improve your physical shape and your health in general.
The ideal is to select an aesthetic program, which is designed to combat cellulite and flaccidity. If you also want to relax your muscles after a physical exercise in which you have fully used your arms, you can opt for a sports recovery program.
Generally, any good pressotherapy equipment that is complete offers both types of treatment. The massage will mainly fulfill the function of breaking down the fat cells or adipocytes, so that they are gradually redirected towards the waste channels of the Lymphatic System.
A pressotherapy machine can be used for aesthetic purposes but it also has a therapeutic application for athletes. The massage provided by pressotherapy helps the muscles recover sooner and better after training or competition and reduces the effects of muscle fatigue and fiber breakage. And since this article deals with pressure therapy applied to the arms, let's remember that there are many sports disciplines that especially punish these extremities, so the pressure therapy sleeve for arms is the ideal treatment for all of them. And of course, those who practice sports also take care of their physical appearance, so pressure therapy at home with an aesthetic and therapeutic application for athletes is the all-in-one solution that is already being adopted by both amateur and professional athletes and even federated clubs that use pressotherapy as a strategic tool in their physical preparation.
