ENDERMOLOGIE® Cosmetic Cellulite Treatment by Beautologie
What is cellulite?
Cellulite is a deposit of fat and other material trapped in pockets of connective tissue beneath the skin. It causes progressive dimpling, also called an "orange peel" or "cottage cheese" appearance of the skin. About 90 % of women are affected by it after they reach puberty.
Why are women prone to develop cellulite?
Women's skin is built differently than men's to help them to store fat during pregnancy and breast-feeding, and also to allow the skin to expand during these times. When estrogen levels fluctuate in the body, the skin retains fluid, connective tissue in the skin hardens, blood and lymphatic circulation is decreased, and fat cell storage is favored, causing the development of cellulite.
What is Endermologie?
Endermologie is an approved procedure using the Cellu M6 Keymodule machine. This effectively, reduces the appearance of cellulite and circumferential body measurements of treated areas for months.
Is Endermologie® new?
Endermologie ® has been a specific procedure for the treatment of cellulite and body contouring since 1986. Over 95,000 treatments are now performed every day in over 95 countries
How does the machine work?
Endermologie is performed with Keymodule’s gentle motorized treatment head. By gently lifting and rolling the skin, the Cellu M6 Keymodule stimulates the venous and lymphatic systems, thereby eliminating toxins. Fibroblasts are stimulated to increase collagen and elastin production, generating a healthier, rejuventated skin tone. Attachments between the underlying tissue and the skin that cause the dimpling are released, thus resulting in a smoother skin contour.
Does Endermologie really work?
Yes. Clinical studies from UCLA, Vanderbilt University, and many European Universities have proven results of the Endermologie machine! Our own patients are also living proof of the effectiveness of the treatment.
What is the difference between Endermologie® and Liposuction?
Endermologie® treatments are non-invasive and improve the health of connective tissue. Liposuction is a more invasive surgical procedure aimed at removing deep fat tissue from an area. Our Fresno and Bakersfield doctors often recommend Endermologie® treatments in conjunction with liposuction to minimize the trauma cause by the scarring and inflammation of the procedure and to improve the health of the tissue.
Who performs the treatment?
All treatments are performed by a qualified Endermologie therapist. All Endermologie Therapists are trained and certified by Beautologie. We offer Endermologie cellulite treatments in our Bakersfield location.
Does the procedure hurt?
With your highly trained therapist, and the Endermologie machine's capability of changing intensity, you won't be in pain. It is a non-invasive, relaxing treatment that involves no medical procedures or use of any chemical substances, creams or gels. Many people actually refer to it as a relaxing deep massage.
Does the treatment have any side effects?
The only negative side effect possible is minor bruising for individuals with very sensitive skin. This is very minor when one considers the numerous positive effects that Endermologie has on the body, such as relieving muscle soreness, fading of stretch marks and scar tissue, feeling rejuvenated, and relaxed.
How long does a session last? Do you just work on my problem areas?
A session lasts for about 35 minutes. The main focus of the treatment is directed to the problem areas, but the entire body must be treated in order to stimulate general circulation and elimination of broken up toxic matters.
How many sessions do I need to start seeing results?
Results vary for every person, however an average person starts to notice the changes after about 6-8 sessions.
How many treatments should I consider to begin with?
A series of 15 sessions would be a good start to achieve results. The first 6 treatments are suggested within a two-week time period, than the rest of the treatments should be received twice a week until desired look is achieved. After the desired look is achieved, maintenance appointments once a month are sufficient for most individuals.
How long should I continue my treatments?
We suggest that you approach cellulite treatment as a lifestyle change. Just as we go to have our hair cut on an ongoing basis, we need our cellulite treated regularly as well. If we don't address the problem in a regular manner, cellulite will come back.
What do I wear during treatments?
During the treatment you will wear a body stocking called Endermo-wear to wear during all of your sessions. The stocking is worn for modesty and hygiene.
Can everyone receive the treatment?
No. It is not for pregnant women, or people taking blood thinners, people with circulatory or vascular disease, active cancer, and also with infectious progressive diseases, and AIDS. Should you have any other concerns, please give us a call and we will answer any questions.
Does the treatment work on men also?
Definitely. Even though men are not prone to developing cellulite, they might have loose skin or fat trapped under the skin that can be improved by Endermologie. Clinical experience has shown excellent results for problem areas such as "love handles" and loose pectoral tissue. It is an excellent skin toner, and is generally considered the best choice to treat loose skin after weight loss.
Is it a weight loss program?
No, in order to lose weight you need to get on an exercise and diet program. However you can achieve incredible results by combining the Endermologie treatment with weight loss programs. As a result of the treatment, you'll notice your clothes fitting better, and also you'll lose some inches in circumferential body measurements.
Do I need to do anything to get good results?
Yes. Drink sufficient amount of water. You will receive information during your initial consultation on the amount of water your body needs.
Are the results permanent?
If the factors causing the initial condition are not changed, the tissue will return to the state it was in before Endermologie. Regular exercise, a balanced diet and a couple of Endermologie maintenance treatments per month are recommended to help maintain results.
