Cottage cheese looks a lot better on cantaloupe than it does on your thighs, which explains why so many women (and an unlucky handful of men) want to reduce the appearance of cellulite on their body. Endermologie LipoMassage is a nonsurgical device that treats cellulite.
LipoMassage uses a vacuum-like hand piece and mechanical rollers to deeply massage the tissues of the skin, breaking up trapped fat and improving circulation. "Mechano-stimulation," as it's called, activates collagen and elastin production too.
What It's Good For
Endermologie LipoMassage slims down fat cells, smooths cellulite, and firms the overall texture of your skin.
Who it works for: Patients should be within 20 pounds of their ideal weight. They should also be open to adjusting their diet and exercise routine (or starting one). The Endermologie system can be adjusted to treat different types of skin, meaning it is OK for scarred, wrinkled, thin, and fragile skin.
Recommended age range: Cellulite is not age-specific, and neither is Endermologie LipoMassage. The device can be used on any patient with cellulite. These dimples emerge in the late teens.
When will I see results?: Results may appear after six sessions. Realistically, patients have found that at least 14 sessions are needed.
How long it lasts: There is no way to remove cellulite permanently, though continued LipoMassage treatments may help to keep it from returning for a longer period of time.
Key benefits of Endermologie: Endermologie LipoMassage can be used on all skin types. With prolonged use, the device can reduce the appearance of cellulite for years.
Licensed uses: Endermologie LipoMassage is approved for cellulite reduction and body contouring. It may also increase circulation, relieve minor muscle aches, and relax muscle spasms.
