Cellulite forms when fat cells within the subcutaneous layer of the skin expand too much, pressing against the collagen fibers that make up the connective tissue around them. The collagen fibers bend, which pulls the surface of the skin into a dimple, causing the characteristic appearance of cellulite. Cellulite is resistant to diet and exercise. Only endermologie has proven to combat cellulite.
Endermologie is a clinically proven, non-invasive treatment designed to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Endermologie is a non-surgical roller massage therapy. This contouring treatment can address parts of the body where cellulite often appears, such as the hips, thighs, buttocks, and other areas. Endermologie was the first non-invasive device approved by the FDA specifically to address the signs of cellulite. It’s also great for fibromyalgia, lymphatic drainage, and post-surgical treatments.
Endermologie works through compression and kneading. The endermologie machine consists of two rollers with low-pressure suction. As it’s moved firmly over the problem areas, its rollers squeeze the subcutaneous fat cells, compressing them. The vigorous massaging action also stretches the collagen fibers in the connective tissue, loosening their hold on the surface of your skin. These two actions result in a reduction of dimpling and puckering in the outer skin. Endermologie also increases blood flow to the treated area, which stimulates the drainage of accumulated fluid that also contribute to the puffy look.
Endermologie patients must complete the entire treatment regimen. You will usually see results after the sixth treatment, and gradually, those results will get more and more dramatic as the treatments progress. For the best possible results, you should maintain a proper diet and exercise routine before, during, and after treatments. Monthly maintenance sessions are required after the regimen is finished. Endermologie is not a weight-loss tool. In fact, if you are already at your target weight, you are an ideal patient.
