Squeeze in a Session with Ballancer Pro

Ballancer Pro is a state-of-the-art, FDA-cleared compression therapy system that applies a gentle squeeze targeting bloat and water retention and offers a gentle yet effective lymphatic massage. The lymphatic system is a network of specialized vessels and part of the body’s immune system; keeping it in check can balance the body’s overall health. [1] Besides health benefits, this exciting new system is the latest trend embraced by the Hollywood elite – Ballancer Pro lymphatic drainage sessions were a staple leading up to the 2022 Oscars! [2] As with most beauty trends, we look to our patron saints for guidance: Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lopez, Chrissy Teigen, and Zac Efron are all purported devotees of the system, but many pro athletes have also begun using the same technology to aid in recovery

Sushi & Beer, Oh My!

You caroused like a pro at your pal’s birthday party last night. Unfortunately, you got so caught up in the moment that you spaced on that tight little number you’ve chosen to squeeze into for your upcoming event; Ballancer Pro to the rescue. In as little as one 45-minute session, the Ballancer Pro can relieve bloat and fluid retention from an abundance of fun.

Using compression therapy to massage the lymphatic system the Ballancer Pro affects the storage of fluids, which will keep you looking right ‘n tight at a moment’s notice. Dr. Arslanian continues to prove how he earned the moniker Drhotlanta!

How Does Ballancer Pro Work?

Slip into the signature vest and pants and let Ballancer Pro do the rest. The inflatable suit uses pressurized air to compress and move fluid out of the body; chambers inflate sequentially to bring massage waves, which increases blood flow to the massaged zones while also removing lingering waste products that age the skin and tissue. 

Backed by decades of medical research, the BP compression suit uses the principles of manual lymphatic drainage to promote fluid balance, fat absorption, cholesterol transport, and immune cell delivery. [3]

During your Ballancer Pro session at Arslanian Plastic Surgery, select from three incredible programs:

  • Wave cycle: a long, deep, and slow sequential massage. Great for a quick post-workout recovery, “heavy legs,” or pain.
  • Ballancer® cycle: short, superficial, and fast peristaltic massage.
  • Pretherapy® cycle: stimulate the lymph nodes in the groin or armpit (proximal areas).

The combination of proprietary programs creates a versatile and customizable experience for patients. Furthermore, users describe the pressure as feeling like a firm yet comforting hug or a simultaneous massage by a pack of 10 skilled masseuses.

What is the Lymphatic System?

The lymphatic system helps take out the trash. The system is a network of vessels inter-linked with lymphoid tissue and is responsible for maintaining a peaceful environment for every cell and all tissues in the body. [1] It assists in carrying waste from our cells, controls fluid retention, and increases immunity. 

Our bodies work miraculously on their own, pumping fluid from the lymphatic system, but when the system gets overloaded, tissues can swell, bringing on the dreaded bloat or worse! Extreme cases of lymphatic system failure can lead to lymphoedema or chronic swelling in the body. In short, the lymphatic system is essential to health on a cellular level. 

When the system gets overwhelmed, our internal balance can tilt askew, but deep compression and massage are proven to help push the fluids back into circulation. [4] Every day, eight to twelve liters of fluid and protein return to the blood through the lymphatic system. [3] The Ballancer Pro’s precisely calibrated programs massage the lymphatic vessels and lymph nodes near the body’s core, which causes fluid to drain, increasing the circulation of lymph, a vital fluid similar to plasma.

What are the Benefits of Lymphatic Massage?

In clinical studies, lymphatic massage resulted in a decrease in lactic acid in the blood. Lactic acid present in the blood can indicate tissue damage or disease. The results also showed a decline in the presence of AST or aspartate aminotransferase. AST present in the blood can mean liver damage. The decreased level of these serums shows the potential for accelerated regeneration and repair of skeletal muscle cells. [4] 

Cosmetic Applications

On a cosmetic level, patients are singing the praises of the Ballancer Pro. Available for over 40 years in Europe, Americans now understand the aesthetic applications, and they can’t get enough. The system has been reported to:

  • Slim, sculpt, and smooth
  • Decrease bloat
  • Re-energize and invigorate

With increased efficacy over manual lymphatic massage, there is nothing else like it on the market. Who has time for a lengthy massage when you can get better results in half the time? Patients in the Atlanta and Brookhaven areas can schedule an appointment by calling (678) 894-9200.

Sit Back and Relax

Patients continually report that an added benefit of Ballancer Pro compression therapy is the overall zen-like feeling it inspires. The effects of Deep Touch Pressure [5] have been proven to enhance comfort and relaxation, which explains the popularity of weighted blankets. The Ballancer Pro contains 30 compression chambers, the pressure of which can be manipulated up or down for patient comfort. Before you know it, you’re more relaxed and in better health than a mere 45-minutes before.

Candidates for Lymphatic Massage

Because of the incredible benefits to the body’s overall immune health, the system is appropriate for use in most patients. Speak with Dr. Arslanian about any concerns you have or to learn more about the health benefits of Ballancer Pro.
