Endermologie is often thought to refer to a generic procedure, similar to the words “facial” or “massage,” but it is actually a patented and trademarked technology owned by a company called LPG. The grandmother of all that followed, Endermologie was first introduced in the 1980s. Originally intended as a treatment for burn scars, patients and doctors noticed that in addition to treating the scar, the device was reducing cellulite.
Endermologie is based on mechano-stimulation and vacuum therapy. Those treated with Endermologie say that it feels like a deep tissue message. A unique Roll and Lift Technology creates the stimulation:
• Roll – 2 rollers gently pull the skin. The rollers can be used in three directions depending on the needed treatment.
• Lift – Pulses and suction create gentles waves in the tissue.
The two adjustable rollers symmetrically fold the skin again and again while providing controlled suction. This stretching along with the kneading and massage of the deeper tissues, causes the fat deposits to release their hold on the skin. It also increases blood flow, lymphatic drainage and collagen production.
Endermologie is whole-body treatment and not simply done on “problem areas” alone. This is because subcutaneous fat is what is targeted. This deeper layer is resistant to diet and exercise and even liposuction. Endermologie must treat the entire surface of the skin to improve the appearance of the problem areas. Lymphatic drainage, elasticity and collagen production affect the skin as a whole, and not just areas of cellulite.
The Results For Endermologie
The combination of lift and roll improves circulation to the treated area and relaxes the partitions in the fat tissue so the fat can be removed from the cells. The end result is toned and less dimpled skin.
Endermologie is non-invasive, and there is no downtime. Patients do report some discomfort from the rollers, with pain decreasing with each treatment cycle. Some people may develop bruising or soreness after the treatment.
The treatment cycle usually involves two sessions per week for 4-6 weeks followed by 6-8 weeks of 1 session, and finally, once monthly sessions for maintenance. A minimum of 14 treatments are needed for optimal results, with full results showing at 20-26 treatments. Each session lasts approximately 30 minutes. Monthly maintenance is required to keep the improvement. Keeping up with your Endermologie monthly treatments will make the results last up to 5 years.
