Endermologie was first developed during the 1980s in France to treat burns and loosen scar tissue. While using the procedure, it became evident that it can also improve the appearance of cellulite. The popularity of the procedure for aesthetic purposes rapidly increased and is being continuously used by dermatologists as well as cosmetic surgeons.
Endermologie is a non-invasive surgical procedure that reduces cellulite through the use of massages, rolling, and manipulation of the tissues. It is known as the first cellulite treatment to be approved by the American Food and Drug Administration. The process not only reduces the appearance of cellulite but also improves circulation, skin tone, and skin radiance.
How It Works
Endermologie is non-surgical liposuction treatment that utilizes the principle of negative pressure massage. The machine massages through the use of two rollers which are both motorized to roll and unroll a tissue fold while kneads and massages the tissues. There is a suction chamber between the rollers which applies pressure to the tissue fold. By moving the treatment head in various directions, the subcutaneous fat cell layer and skin are mobilized and the blood circulation is restored.
The treatment improves lymphatic drainage and eliminates metabolic toxins from the tissues. The increase in oxygen and nutrients triggers the body’s normal process of fat reduction where fat cells begin to shrink in size. Connective tissue walls are gently stretched and encourage the fibrous tissue cells to produce better quality collagen and elastin. It also tones and firms the patient’s body along the process.
Endermologie treatment is performed with Keymodule’s gentle motorized machine. By gently lifting and rolling the skin, the machine stimulates the venous and lymphatic systems which eliminate toxins. Stimulated fibroblasts cause collagen and elastin to increase in production generating a healthier and rejuvenated skin tone. A minimum of 6 to 10 treatments is recommended. The results from these sessions usually last a few months. A 30 minute treatment each month will help maintain the new shape of the patient.
Patients will be asked to wear a body stocking during the treatment. The therapist will use a hand-held massaging device on the area to be treated. Treatments last approximately 25 to 45 minutes where customers can choose to have about 1 to 2 sessions per week. The machine used has the capability to change intensity so that the patient won’t be in pain. It involves no medical procedures or use of any chemical substances.
As a good start, patients should start with a series of 15 sessions . The first 6 treatments are recommended within a two-week time period. When the desired look is achieved, a maintenance appointment of once a month is suggested for most individuals.
