Details

Endermologie, also known as lipomassage, is a non-invasive treatment that helps reduce the appearance of cellulite and improve the skin. The treatment can be used on the thighs and butt.

Endermologie is also sometimes used in conjunction with a liposuction procedure to promote faster results. The process has many benefits. It can improve circulation, iron out cellulite lumps, and stimulate lymphatic drainage to help remove toxins and fluids from the body.

The device combines deep tissue massage with suction and vibration rollers to decrease cellulite by breaking up the fat cells, which are eliminated by the lymphatic system.  It can also stimulate collagen production to help improve skin tone.  

Before the session begins, patients must first change into a bodysuit. This suit will make massaging the device onto the targeted areas easier. The patient will lie flat face down as the practitioner glides the device over the entire body. Once that is done, problem areas such as the butt, hips, and thighs will be further targeted and massaged. An entire session lasts 35-50 minutes.

Patients can resume their everyday activities immediately. They need to consume 2-2.5 liters of water a day after the treatment to remove the toxins and dissolved fat from the body. A minimum of 6-10 treatments are recommended for visible results. Patients who wish to maintain it will need to opt for monthly sessions.
