Endermologie – An Effective Treatment For Cellulite?
Endermologie is one of the newer anti-cellulite treatments on the market and differs from other methods in many basic ways. In answering what is endermologie it is important to go back to the beginning and look at the basic definitions.
Endermologie is different from most other treatments to fight cellulite in that it does not involve any creams or lotions on the skin, injections or any sort of other injections or invasive procedures. Endermoologie was originally developed as a method of treating and improving the condition of scar tissue, and when doctors noticed that it also smoothed and improved the condition of the skin, the cosmetic applications became obvious. The treatment is most easily defined as massage and is also sometimes known as lipomassage or LPG. When a client attends a clinic for an endermologie treatment, they will be asked to wear a tight bandage like body stocking over the areas affected by cellulite. Then the client simply lies back and relaxes while the therapist passes the vibrating massaging rollers over their body. The motion of the deep massage helps eliminate toxins in the skin, stimulates the cells’ own repair mechanism and eliminates water retention. The process of having the treatment is very relaxing and generally takes around 30 minutes. For maximum effects, the recommended course is two treatments per week over eight to ten weeks. After this has been completed, once per month treatments are sufficient to keep the effects going. Results should be obvious within about six treatments. Treatments are generally carried out in clinics, and results achieved in a salon or clinic are better than the results achieved with similar machines that are sold to use at home.
Endermologie is particularly appropriate for people with allergies or very sensitive skin which makes using some of the creams and other treatments on the market difficult. As endermologie is just massage, there are no side effects and no risk of any allergic reaction from having the treatment. Unlike many other treatments, endermologie has been demonstrated to have good effects in trials but the drawback is that maintenance treatments must be carried out regularly to keep the effects going. Endermologie does not claim to remove cellulite but just reduces its appearance by smoothing it out and stopping it forming clumps under the skin which gives the orange peel appearance, hence the requirement for regular treatments. This obviously involves considerable cost on going to the salon every few weeks to have a treatment, but if having endermologie means you stop spending on creams, lotions and other treatments which don’t work, the money may be well worth it in the long run.
