Endermologie® is a non-invasive technique for reducing the appearance of cellulite.
Endermologie® was the first treatment approved by the FDA to allow the claim of “temporary reduction of cellulite”. It is a massage machine with 2 rollers and a gentle suction action that when rolled over the top layer of fat stretches the connective tissue and results in the reduction of cellulite and body measurements. FDA approved claims that Endermologie treatments temporary reduce cellulite, reduce body measurements, increase circulation, relieve muscular pain, and reduce muscle spasms.
It was developed in the 1980’s as a non-surgical method to treat the scars of burn victims, who began to notice improvements in their cellulite as well. From that point forward any benefits of Endermologie began to be recognized.
Typcal questions about Endermologie:
Q: Does Endermologie reduce cellulite?
A: Yes. Endermologie has been extensively studied and received approval by the FDA to specifically make the claim that it does reduce cellulite.
Q: How many Endermologie treatments are necessary?
A: Usually 14-28 initial treatments, 1 to 2 times a week, are necessary to achieve the optimal results, with a monthly visit thereafter for maintenance. Treatments are usually 30 minutes in duration, and the entire body will be treated. In addition to the targeted areas, your Endermologie treatments will help increase lymphatic flow and help promote better circulation throughout your entire body.
Q: When will I begin to see results?
A: Approximately 6 treatments will be necessary to begin seeing results from having Endermologie preformed on your body. Just as we do not notice our body when our weight loss is only 1-2 pounds, but only notice our body improvements as that weight loss becomes accumulative. Likewise, with cellulite reduction through Endermologie, you will dramatically observe the reduction of your appearance of cellulite as your number of treatments increases.
Q: Is the Endermologie treatment painful?
A: Actually, the majority of patients compare receiving Endermologie to receiving a very deep massage and find the treatment very relaxing. Moreover, the intensity of the rolling action can be adjusted to achieve your personal comfort level.
Q: What are the after-effects from receiving Endermologie?
A: You will likely feel an increase in energy and an overall feeling of relaxation. Minor, temporary bruising might occur, similar to what you would receive from a deep tissue massage.
