Check out these common questions about Endermologie:
How does it work?
Endermologie involves the use of a motorized device with two adjustable rollers and controlled suction, which creates a symmetrical skin-fold, temporarily stimulating circulation to the area. The skin gently folds and unfolds under the continuous action of the rollers allowing for smooth and regulated deep tissue mobilization. It feels like a massage! Also aids in lymphatic drainage, circulation, and recontouring of the body.
How long does a session last?
Each session lasts approximately 35 minutes.
Do you just work on my problem areas?
The main focus of the treatment is directed at the problem areas, but the entire body must be treated in order to stimulate general circulation and elimination of broken up toxic matters.
How many sessions do I need to start seeing results?
Results vary for every person, however an average person starts to notice the changes after about 3-8 sessions.
How many treatments should I consider to begin with?
A series of 15 sessions would be a good start to achieve results. The first 6 treatments are suggested within a 2 week time period, then the rest of the treatments should be received twice a week until desired look is achieved. After the desired look is achieved, a once a month maintenance is sufficient for most individuals. We have great package discounts!
How long should I continue my treatments?
We suggest that you approach cellulite treatment as a lifestyle change. Just as we go to have our hair cut on an ongoing basis, we need our cellulite treated regularly as well. If we don’t address the problem in such manner, cellulite will come back. Some clients enjoy maintenance treatments every 3-4 weeks, others every couple of months.
Does the procedure hurt?
No! It's relaxing, in fact! With our highly trained therapists, and the machine’s capability of changing intensity, you won’t be in pain. This non-invasive, relaxing treatment involves no medical procedures or use of any chemical substances, creams or gels.
What do I wear during treatments?
We will provide you with a body stocking to wear during all of your sessions. The stocking is worn for modesty and hygiene. If you purchase a package, you will receive a free body stocking.
Can everyone receive the treatment?
No. It is not for pregnant women, or people taking blood thinners, people with circulatory or vascular disease, active cancer, and also with infectious progressive diseases, and AIDS. Should you have any other concerns, we recommend that you consult your physician.
Does the treatment have any side effects?
The only negative side effect possible is minor bruising for individuals with very sensitive skin. However there are numerous positive side effects, such as relieving muscle soreness, fading of stretch marks and scar tissue, feeling rejuvenated, and relaxed.
Is it a weight loss program?
No, in order to lose weight you need to get on an exercise and diet program. However you can achieve incredible results by combining this treatment with weight loss programs and the use of our sauna pod and ionic foot bath body detox therapy (discounted pricing for memberships). As a result of the treatment, you’ll notice your clothes fitting better, and you’ll lose some inches in circumferential body measurements.
Do I need to do anything to get good results?
Yes. Drink sufficient amounts of water. You will receive information during your free initial consultation on the amount of water your body needs.
Does this treatment work on men also?
Definitely. Even though men are not prone to develop cellulite, they might have loose skin, or some fat trapped under the skin, that can be improved by the treatments. Clinical experience has shown excellent results for problem areas such as "love handles" and loose pectoral tissue. It is an excellent skin toner, therefore it is the best choice to treat the skin after weight loss that resulted in loose skin.
What is the difference between ENDERMOLOGIE® and Liposuction?
Endermologie treatments are non-invasive and improve the health of connective tissue. Liposuction is an invasive surgical procedure aimed at removing deep fat tissue from an area. Doctors often recommend Endermologie treatments in conjunction with liposuction to minimize the trauma cause by the scaring and inflammation of the procedure and to improve the health of the tissue.
Are the results permanent?
If the factors causing the initial condition are not changed, the tissue will return to the state it was in before Endermologie. Regular exercise, a balanced diet and 1-2 Endermologie maintenance treatments per month are recommended to help keep the results achieved.
Is ENDERMOLOGIE® new?
Endermologie has been a specific procedure for the treatment of cellulite and body contouring since 1986. Over 95,000 treatments are now performed every day in over 95 countries worldwide.
