FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is Endermologie?

It is the first FDA approved non-invasive holistic method developed in France over 10 years ago that reduces the appearance of cellulite, stubborn fat, loose sagging skin, and also aids in weight loss. It is a combination of gentle suction and rolling of the skin resulting in lipolysis (fat release) which is activated by stimulating the fat cells to trigger the release of trapped fat where diet and exercise leave off. An estimated 90% of women have cellulite due to poor circulation and inadequate lymphatic drainage. Endermologie improves local blood and lymphatic circulation up to 400% and it promotes skin fitness by increasing collagen production up to 100% in a single session. It is safe, relaxing, and produces dramatic long-lasting results. Not only will you look great, you will feel great as well. It also relieves muscle tension and soreness. This technique is good for releasing water retention and toxins. Endermologie is also recommended for post liposuction since liposuction does not get rid of cellulite. This treatment also helps reduce swelling and scar tissue formation after liposuction.


What is Lipomassage?

Lipomassage is a unique non-invasive alternative and/or compliment to liposuction procedures.  Lipomassage™ by Endermologie® is the latest treatments dedicated to localized fat and  cellulite while  contouring the body.


Why should I try Endermologie?

Endermologie is great since it is a non-invasive spa treatment for your body. If you want to loose inches and stubborn fat while feeling good at the same time, Endermologie is the answer. Diet and exercise alone cannot get rid of cellulite. Of course regular exercise, a healthy diet, and drinking lots of water is recommended to achieve the best results.


Does Endermologie reduce cellulite?

Yes. Endermologie has been extensively studied and approved by the FDA to specifically make the claim that it does reduce cellulite. However, it does not permanently remove cellulite. A maintenance program must be kept in order to retain results. Results  can last anywhere from 6 months to year.


How long is each treatment?

Each Endermologie treatment lasts 35 minutes.


How many treatments will I need?
The condition of the body must  first be  evaluated, but, a typical  client will have 2 treatments a week for 4-6 weeks and then 1 treatment a week for 6-8 weeks and then maintenance is 1 treatment a month. This is a total of 20-26 treatments for an average person for 6 months. When the body hits a plateau, usually a year after treatment, weekly treatments may be needed again. The minimum amount of treatments for optimal results is 14. However, everyone is different and the program is tailored individually.


When will I begin to see results?

Endermologie does not provide dramatic results right away. You will notice results usually after 8-10  treatments.


Is Endermologie better than liposuction?

Liposuction does not remove fat from the top layer of  skin.   Liposuction removes fat from the middle layer of skin, leaving the top layer of skin still dimpled and full of cellulite.  Endermologie works directly on the dimpled top layer of skin, breaking up the fat trapped underneath effectively reducing the appearance of cellulite. Endermologie works very well for Liposuction Patuents.


Is the Endermologie painful?

Not at all! It’s as relaxing and soothing as a deep tissue massage.


Endermologie Side Effects

Similar to a deep tissue massage you will experience an overall feeling of relaxation. You may also experience temporary bruising; which is a common result of deep tissue massage.


Can’t I achieve these results on my own?

While there are many hand-held massagers you can use at home you may not experience the same result as an endermologie treatment. Home treatments do not have the same power and capability as sophisticated endermologie machines. The results of home machines also have not been researched or tested as an effective cellulite treatment as of yet.


How much does Endermologie cost

Each endermologie center has its own way of pricing endermologie sessions. Prices range from approximately $75 to $150 per session. Many centers offer packages and discounts for multiple sessions, which can reduce the cost of your treatments significantly .


Are Endermologie results permanent?

No. After endermologie treatments it’s very important to stay away from factors which contribute to cellulite. If conditions are not changed, the cellulite will return in the state it was before. To maintin results, you should exercise regularly, maintain a healthy diet and go in for 1-2 endomologie treatments per month for optimal results.

W
ho performs the massage?

specially trained technicians will customize a massage for you, choosing from a repertoire of therapeutic maneuvers designed for each part of your body.

Why do you have to do my whole body? Why don’t you just do my “problem” area?
The skin over the entire body must be treated to improve the appearance of the entire surface of the skin. The lymphatic drainage and the elastin & collagen production affect the entire body, not just the “problem areas”. While we will work the entire body, we will also specifically concentrate on the clients‘ problem areas.


Does the treatment hurt?
Not at all, in fact it should feel good and relaxing. You will not feel any pinching or pressure. “No pain/no gain” does not apply here at all. It is like a deep massage—gentle and relaxing.


Do I have to wear anything special?
Yes, you will have to wear a special body suit called Endermowear, which is available for purchase and yours to wear at every endermologie treatment.


What can I do to ensure optimal results?
While undergoing treatments, drink at least 2-3 liters (8 to 12-8 oz glasses) of water per day. Water helps to flush away toxins and it is very important to drink it for best results.


Will diet and exercise help my cellulite or trapped fat?
No, cellulite occurs in the subcutaneous fat layer, which responds mainly to hormones and minimally to diet and exercise. Diet and exercise alone have little effect on the elasticity of connective tissue fibers under the skin which are responsible for the ripples and dimples caused by cellulite.
