Endermologie Explained

What is Endermologie?

Endermologie is a 100% natural cellular stimulation technique.

It is an approved way to reduce the appearance of cellulite and tone loose sagging skin.

Endermologie is a sub dermal approach to treating cellulite. It was pioneered by the LPG systems in France in the early 1990’s. Since its introduction Endermologie has become the world’s first patented technology to be approved by the Food and Drugs association. (FDA)

How many treatments will I need?

After just one treatment you will feel the difference and results become visible after the third session. It is recommended that to achieve the best possible results a course of 10-18 treatments is taken. Although clients do not need to diet while having Endermologie it is recommended that they eat healthily and drink at least two litres of water a day. This will encourage the body to eliminate the toxins that Endermologie helps free the body of.

How does it work?

Endermologie works to stimulate and strengthen the skin tissue thus reducing or eliminating the appearance of cellulite. The handset is held over the body, this should feel comfortable and can be likened to the feeling of a deep tissue massage. Two rollers are used to treat the areas of concern and will either roll in, out or up depending on the programme.

There are Two Categories

  • Silhouette: Slimming, localised fat, sagging skin and painful cellulite
  • Contour: sagging skin and painful cellulite

What is Cellulite?

Cellulite develops in the hyperdermis (the outer layer of the two main layers of cells that make up the skin). The adipose cells (A type of connective tissue that stores cellular fat) expand due to hormonal changes which force the septa (connective tissue that serves a "connecting" function. It supports and binds other tissues together) to be pushed down blocking the lymph and veins causing a dimple effect that we commonly know as cellulite.

Contributing factors of cellulite:
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Changes to the body’s metabolic balance
  • Ageing and hormonal changes
  • Accidents and illness
  • The slowdown of metabolic exchanges
Different types of cellulite:
  • Fibrosis cellulite: Cold to the touch, bruises easily, quite hard in a compacted area.
  • Adipose cellulite: Usually found under the buttock cheek. This is the most common form of cellulite.
  • Edema cellulite: Jelly like in appearance. When the skin is flicked the fluid build up underneath can be seen. Build up of fluid at the side of the knee. Puffy ankles.
  • Cellulite develops in the outer layers, the hypodermis or the subcutaneous fat layer, the adipocytes cells (responsible for storing excess fats) push upwards towards the surface of the skin while the septa pulls the skin downwards. As a result the skin develops an ‘orange peel’ appearance.

The results of a course of Endermologie:
  • The lymphatic system is increased by 600% -
  • The lymphatic system consists of organs, ducts, and nodes. It transports a watery clear fluid called lymph.
  • This fluid distributes immune cells and other factors throughout the body. It also interacts with the blood circulatory system to drain fluid from cells and tissues.
  • The lymphatic system contains immune cells called lymphocytes, which protect the body against antigens (viruses, bacteria, etc.) that invade the body.
  • The blood flow is increased by 400%
  • Increases collagen of an area by over 100% -
