Endermologie is a painless nonsurgical technique of
body contouring that actually reduces the appearance
of cellulite and improves skin texture. Endermologie
is a safe, effective way of reducing the orange peel
appearance of skin where cellulite accumulates. It involves
the use of a motorized device with two adjustable rollers
and controlled suction, which creates a symmetrical
skin-fold. This creates a gentle folding and unfolding
allowing for smooth and regulated deep tissue mobilization.
Anyone may be affected by cellulite. The condition
is due to a combination of tightened connective tissue
in the skin and excess fatty tissue. Although the exact
cause is not yet well understood, circulation, genetics
and age are commonly thought to be influential factors.
It has been finally understood that the dimpling on
the surface of the skin was but a symptom of the underlying
cause and to banish the bumps would require a deeply
acting treatment. Endermologie can create the desired
appearance of smoother, softer skin.
How is a Cellulite Treatment performed?
Endermologie can renew skin tone, making it softer
and more supple. In combination with exercise, Endermologie
can help achieve younger, smoother skin faster than
exercise alone. The procedure stimulates circulation
throughout the skin making it feel smooth and soft.
Experimental studies suggest that the treatment helps
the body form new collagen, the protein found most abundantly
in your skin. Endermologie can be very helpful for patients
experiencing skin rippling after liposuction.
The treatment is a deep, firm massage that is not uncomfortable
for most people; in fact, many people find the treatment

How do I prepare for a Cellulite Treatment
During your initial consultation, your surgeon will
discuss the changes that you would like to make to your
appearance. Since the appearance of your skin is a matter
of personal perception and preference, you will need
to discuss your concerns in detail so your surgeon can
determine the appropriate alternatives. Prior to your
procedure, the surgeon will perform a complete health
history and physical. Knowledge of your allergies, medications
and previous surgeries should be brought to your surgeon's
attention at this time. Specific instructions to assist
you in preparing for this procedure will be given to
you after the health history and physical is complete.
Depending on your individual health status, the instructions
may include guidelines regarding your diet, alcohol
intake, smoking and which medications to take or avoid.
Your experience will be much smoother if you remain
compliant with your surgeon's instructions.
What precautions are necessary during recovery?
Because cellulite treatment is a non-surgical procedure,
there is no recovery time associated with the treatment.
What are the possible complications after
Minor bruising can occur, and occasionally spider veins
will temporarily darken. No procedure is without risks;
however, the majority of complications known to be associated
with a endermologie are minor when the procedure is
performed by an experienced board certified plastic
surgeon. It is always important to be informed about
the possible complications before any surgery. Be sure
to discuss any concerns you may have with your surgeon.
What results can I expect after Cellulite
Endermologie is usually effective at temporarily reducing
the appearance of cellulite. However, long-term studies
have not been performed and the lasting effects of these
treatments are not certain. Ongoing studies are currently
being performed in order to determine life-long effects
The results produced by Endermologie depend a great
deal on the skill of the practitioner. Most people report
that Endermologie improves their skin tone, leaving
it firmer and smoother. The treatment can reduce the
appearance of stretch marks and loose skin. When the
procedure is done in conjunction with exercise and a
healthy diet affects can be profound. People usually
see changes within five or six sessions.
