There are few women who do not suffer from cellulite troubles on some part of their body at some point in their life. Factors such as body chemistry, genetics, and weight gain can all contribute to the appearance and amount of cellulite on a person's body.
Introduced to the United States in 1996, Endermologie is a safe and painless procedure designed to reduce the appearance of cellulite and smooth the skin. Prior to 1996, the treatment was widely practiced and raved about in Europe. It is now approved by the FDA for temporary reduction of cellulite and involves no chemicals or surgery. Endermologie can also relieve minor muscle pains and relax muscle spasms. It is safe for both men and women.
The endermologie machine massages the problem areas with a combination of suction and rollers. Circulation can be increased by up to 200 percent, resulting in the stretching of subdermal connective tissue and the natural elimination of body toxins and excess retained water. During the process, a special body suit is worn to keep the rollers from direct contact with the skin.
A typical treatment session lasts about a half hour but must be repeated for results to be seen. The standard regimen consists of two treatments per week for 6-8 weeks. Results will become noticeable as early as the fifth or sixth treatment. Endermologie is not a solution for weight loss or a replacement for exercise.
