Cellulite Problems?

Endermologie Could Be Your Answer

What is cellulite?
Cellulite is a term used to describe deposits of fat and other material trapped in pockets of connective tissue beneath the skin. Clinically this is responsible for the progressive dimpling appearance of the skin. The main factors responsible for cellulite are excess consumption of saturated fats, lack of exercise, poor hydration and imbalances in hormonal function.
Why does Endermologie work?
By increasing the blood circulation in the subcutaneous layer, fluids and fat that cause the dimpling appearance are mobilized. The mechanical head creates a skin fold that is manipulated to give a massage action directly to the superficial fascia, which is the equivalent of fitness for the skin. The appearance of cellulite is temporarily reduced unless sustained with regular maintenance and healthy lifestyle.
Why is maintenance necessary?

Like exercise, one session wont produce recognizable results. But a sustained program consisting of at least 15-20 sessions will produce an improved appearance of cellulite and circumferential body measurements. Monthly maintenance sessions, combined with a healthy lifestyle can maintain the results. Similar to muscle tone and size, results are only temporary unless sustained with regular workouts. Endermologie is fitness for the skin and when done regularly the skin stays smooth.

Who is a good candidate for Endermologie?

Treatment is for individuals who are living a healthy lifestyle. Muscle movement and exercise are vital to promote lymphatic circulation. Adequate water intake flushes wastes from the body while hydrating muscles and other tissues. While the lymphatic system is primarily responsible for removal of waste products from these areas, a two liter a day water intake is an essential part of the Endermologie program. A healthy diet filled with necessary ingredients to promote and maintain good health is important throughout treatment.

What proof is there that Endermologie works?

Leaders in the field of aesthetic medicine have conducted studies that demonstrate the effectiveness of Endermologie treatment. The FDA has given LPG approval to claim that Endermologie does temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite with treatment. Additionally, independent medical studies have demonstrated up to a 400% increase in blood flow to the skin for more than six hours and up to 300% increase in lymphatic flow for at least three hours following treatment. Photographs are performed before and during the treatments to document the efficacy and results of treatments.

How safe is the procedure?
Endermologie is a proven noninvasive, effective and painless procedure. Most clients report feeling energized yet relaxed.
What should I look for in an Endermologist?

You should ask if they are certified and trained. How many hours of experience do they have? Do they show you before and after pictures of other clients? Do they have good equipment and is it maintained properly? How long are their treatments and how much area do they cover? What are their hours of availability?
