FAQ about Endermologie

  

Does it really work?
Yes, it does work, as demonstrated over the past 12 years in thousands of case studies from around the world. It was enough proof for the FDA to authorize the manufacturer to claim temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite. The FDA is renowned for its strictest scientific standards worldwide.


How many treatments can I have in one week?
The average number of treatments is two per week. If you are simultaneously in the process of losing a significant amount of weight or if you have a long-term problematic cellulite condition, one treatment per week is recommended More than two sessions per week will not bring faster results.


How long does a session last? Do you just work on my problem areas?

Sessions last an average of 35 minutes. Your problem areas are focused on, but time is given to other areas to stimulate general circulation and elimination.

How many sessions before I see results?
Usually people see changes within 5 or 6 sessions, but 14 are the average number of suggested treatments. Monthly maintenance sessions are suggested thereafter.

Does Endermologie® help me lose weight?
No, the Endermologie® machine has not been proven to help with weight loss. The FDA allows the following claims in relation to beauty: to temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite and to reduce circumferential body measurements in cellulite-treated areas, it is not a weight-loss device. In fact, the results of Endermologie will likely be enhanced if you are at your ideal body weight.

Does this replace exercise?
No. In fact, it is highly recommended that you add diet and exercise to the routine you follow while undergoing Endermologie® treatments. In most cases, this improves results.

Does this treatment work on men also?
Definitely. Our clinical experience has shown excellent results for problem areas such as "love handles" and loose pectoral tissue.

Does the machine tone the skin?
Patients have been thrilled with the results, and have themselves also claimed an improvement in skin tone and appearance of stretch marks. Such claims, while entirely subjective and not documented by medical evidence, nonetheless demonstrate the extent of patient satisfaction.


Why are pantyhose worn when receiving treatments?

Pantyhose allow the Endermologie® treatment head to glide more easily over the body and insure optimal hygiene.

Why not just buy a hand-held machine for $99?
First, logically, it is like comparing a hand-held vacuum to the best, highest tech, commercial vacuum.  Second and most important, they are not FDA-approved and have no scientific evidence to back them.

What is the difference between Endermologie® and liposuction? Can it be used instead of liposuction?
Endermologie®, unlike liposuction, does not involve breaking through the skin in any way. Some people try Endermologie® first and then choose to wait to receive liposuction. Some choose to receive both as part of a dual treatment to their problem. Endermologie® is being used and studied by some of the most well known practitioners of liposuction in the world.


What sensations will I experience during the treatment?

The sensation is similar to a deep massage. Most clients find it quite pleasant. The strength of the treatment can be individually adjusted to your comfort level.

What will I feel afterwards?
Most clients report a feeling of relaxation and an increase in energy. Since the Lymph system is stimulated, it is important for the success of your treatment that you drink at least two liters of water every day during the duration of your treatment in order to aid in elimination

Are there any side effects?
Minor, temporary bruising may occur

Can I receive treatments if I am pregnant?
No, correlation has been found between Endermologie® and complications in pregnancy. However, it is recommended that during pregnancy you do NOT receive treatments.

Can I have Endermologie® treatments if I'm planning to have liposuction?
Yes! Endermologie® is recommended by many plastic surgeons before and after liposuction (especially after). Endermologie® counteracts the rippling and hard fat deposits than can occur with liposuction.
