Cellulite treatments are one of the biggest topics when it comes to cosmetic health. Basically, cellulite accumulates under your skin in uneven patches, causing small dimples to appear on your skin. If you’ve ever been overweight, you know that these dimples are numerous and clustered together in flabby areas such as your thighs, buttocks, and arms. They are unsightly and are very difficult t get rid of.
For most people, the easiest way to get rid of these dimples is to have their cellulite removed either through liposuction, laser cellulite treatment, or medicinal treatment. However, there are now a number of ways to get the same results without undergoing a procedure or taking medication. One of these great alternatives is called Endermologie.
Endermologie is a French developed cellulite reduction treatment that is steadily gaining popularity in the US. The treatment uses a device which has rollers and suction to basically pull the skin around in a manner similar to a deep tissue massage. This actually redistributes your skin and the cellulite under it so that the dimples on your skin disappear. It’s a very simple concept but works out well.
Endormologie is also much more subtle than liposuction. It takes at least 6 sessions before it has any visible effect and takes anywhere from 14 to 28 sessions to get the compete effect. Each session lasts 30 to 45 minutes, meaning that this is a treatment for those who are committed to caring for and maintaining their body.
But for the right kind of people, the benefits are enormous. First of all, it is a non-surgical treatment which means that you won’t have to worry about scarring, infections, and recovery time. Secondly, it doesn’t leave you with loose flaps of skin the way that liposuction tends to do. Best of all, it can break up the congested lymphatic flow of your skin preventing more cellulite from reappearing. It may not have the immediate results that liposuction has, but it has a much longer benefit to your health.
If you’ve never had this treatment before, you might be worried about the pain. Cosmetic treatments, surgical or otherwise, normally cause a degree of discomfort to the patient both during and after the procedure. Endermologie has the potential to be painless. In fact, some people actually find it enjoyable and relaxing like a deep tissue massage.
Side-effects of the Endermologie treatment include soreness and redness around the treated areas. A handful of people experience bruising, but all of these symptoms disappear in a few days. Compared to liposuction, Endermologie has much less risk and no down time for recovery.
Take note that the Endermologie technique is considered a temporary solution. It spreads out the cellulite but doesn’t remove it from the body in the way that liposuction does. Endermologie should be combined with a proper diet and regular exercise so that you can achieve the maximum enhancement. If you’re a person with a healthy lifestyle who’s just looking for that extra boost to make your skin look perfect, Endermologie is definitely a great treatment for you.
