Cellulite Treatment

Cellulite Treatment

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 relaxing.

How do I prepare for a Cellulite Treatment procedure?

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.
