Endermologie machine
Endermologie was developed in France originally as a medical treatment to relieve muscle spasm and pain. The equipment was both relaxing and effective as a therapeutic patient treatment.  While undergoing treatments, Doctors and female patients noticed improvements in the skin texture. Since then, endermologie cellulite treatment has gained popularity as a safe, patented, non-surgical, non-invasive technique to reduce cellulite. The LPG System device was introduced into the US years ago after gaining FDA approval for cellulite reduction. Major health benefits include:


  • Better circulation
  • Improvement in fibromyalgia & chronic fatigue symptoms
  • Body contouring = inch loss
  • Faster muscle recovery
  • Deep lymphatic drainage

How does it work?

Endermologie cellulite treatmentEndermologie uses a motorized device with two adjustable rollers and controlled suction to create a symmetrical skin-fold. The process stimulates circulation to the targeted area. As the skin gently folds and unfolds, deep tissue is mobilized, the viscosity of the subcutaneous fat layer decreases, blood flow and lymphatic drainage increases, and excess fluids and metabolites are eliminated.

Think of Endermologie as a machine-assisted massage system. Positive and negative pressure rolling stimulates tissue at a level that cannot be duplicated by manual massage. Treatments significantly improve overall cellular function, body contour, and skin texture.

Endermologie has many health, sports, and beauty applications and is appropriate for use all over the body. Clients report many pleasant though sometimes unexpected health benefits, such as improved complexion, more vitality, clearer thinking, more restful sleep, and even relief from constipation.

Endermologie¬ģ works because it improves skin tone through the stimulation of the skin cells that produce collagen and elastin. This is especially beneficial for skin that has aged and lost elasticity. Cellulite and other layers of fat are essentially massaged. During this process, fat lobes diminish in size and the fluid surrounding them drains naturally.

What to expect during the session:

Endermolgie is a full body protocol concentrating on the larger parts of your body. You’ll be wearing a lycra body suit and you’ll receive the session on a massage table. The machine’s smooth rollers will gently glide over the lycra suit pulling and compressing your skin as it rolls over your body, it is generally a relaxing experience. The machine time for the session is 35 minutes.

What to expect after the session:

Most people feel refreshed and relaxed after the session. Generally, they can sense the deeper layers of their skin where the machine work is concentrated, this level of awareness is a novel experience. You may notice the need to go to the bathroom after the session, this is normal and is a byproduct of your body doing its part to help remove fluid from your body.

Recommended protocols:

Endermolgie works well as a stand alone treatment, it works well with Heccus treatments, and a good strategy is to alternate between Endermologie and Dermosonic sessions.
