Endermologie is a non surgical procedure and is the first cellulite treatment to be approved by the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Not only does endermologie help improve the appearance of cellulite, but it can also improve circulation, relieve minor muscular aches, improve skin tone and skin radiance.


Approximately 90% of women over the age of 20 develop cellulite (sometimes referred to as the ‘orange peel effect’), so unsurprisingly the popularity of the procedure for aesthetic purposes has increased rapidly Endermologie is now used by beauticians, masseurs, physiotherapists, dermatologists and plastic surgeons and while you cannot get rid of of cellulite completely, endermologie can massively improve the appearance of those lumps and bumps.


What is cellulite and what causes it?


Firstly, what is cellulite? It can be described as the orange peel effect which many women suffer from on different areas of their body. It mainly occurs on the hips and thighs but can be found elsewhere as well. It gives skin a dimpled and uneven appearance, but is painless. It is caused by fat cells beneath our skin which trap toxins and retain water so the action of the massaging machine during endermologie breaks down the fat, water and toxins, allowing the lymphatic system to drain it all away. While you cannot entirely get rid of cellulite, there are a few things which we know worsen the appearance of it, such as:

  • Diet – Eating too many carbohydrates, fat and salt can increase the amount that you have. Likewise, not eating enough fiber rich foods such as whole grains, fruit & vegetables, nuts, seeds and beans can have the same effect on the appearance of cellulite.
  • Lifestyle – Certain lifestyle factors, such as smoking and exercise can influence the way it looks and how severe it is. Try to avoid sitting or standing in one position for long periods of time, stop smoking and get out in the fresh air and do some exercise.
  • Clothes – Cellulite can be affected by blood flow so wearing clothes which are tight and restrict blood flow to your legs won’t help your skin.
  • Genes – There are some genes which are required for cellulite to develop. Therefore, your genetic characteristics such as having a slow metabolism and an insufficient circulatory system may mean you are more at risk of developing it.
  • Hormones – Many people believe that certain hormones (insulin, noradrenaline, estrogen, prolactin and thyroid hormones) play an important role in the production and development of cellulite.

About the Treatment

Endermologie itself is a machine with a head that holds a small vacuum and two rollers. The vacuum gently lifts the tissue allowing the rollers to roll your skin with ease and comfort. Lots of people consider this skin rollingtreatment method as one of the oldest forms of massage. starvac The rolling action acts to break up the fibrous tissue, softening and evening out the tissue by stimulating collagen. This also ultimately speeds up the body’s natural detoxification process, keeping your body at its optimum level of health and a sense of well-being.


Treatment Time
