Frequently Asked Questions
Is it new?
Endermologie Treatments using the original Cellu M6 were aimed at rehabilitating scars, burns and connective tissue disorders, however a surprising side-effect was discovered – the reduction of cellulite and significant inch loss from the body! In 1984 Endermologie became a specific procedure for cellulite treatment and body contouring. Over 95,000 Endermologie treatments are now performed everyday in over 90 countries worldwide.
Is endermologie more effective than diet and exercise as a cellulite treatment?
Exercise and diet are beneficial, but do not break the cellulite cycle alone. We recommend combining a healthy lifestyle while undertaking Endermologie.
How long do the results last?
Results can last up to a few years depending on age, lifestyle and hormonal changes. Maintenance sessions are recommended to extend the effects of the results.
Is it really effective? Is it scientifically proven?
LPG's techniques have been used for many years by plastic surgeons, dermatologists, doctors, physical therapists, institutes, and spas throughout the world. The results achieved by endermologie have been confirmed by scientific studies conducted in leading American and European universities. Endermologie was the first FDA (American Food & Drug Administration) approved treatment to reduce the appearance of cellulite and further studies continue to show outstanding results. Their efficacy has been proven by more than 85 clinical and scientific studies. The main study, coordinated by Professor Lafontan (INSERM, Toulouse), demonstrates that the latest generation of Cellu M6 motorized rolls activates lipolysis (fat elimination increased by 70%) by stimulating the fat cell via its ß receptors, which are responsible for the removal of fat.
When is it not safe?
In general, Lipomassage should not be practiced in cases of serious and progressive illness, serious blood circulation disorders, phlebitis, or pregnancy. If in doubt, ask your practitioner or doctor for advice.
How long does it take to see the results?
You will feel results after the very first use. Treated areas are less compact, less voluminous, and decongested. Your skin is smoother and softer. After six sessions, the results are intensified: your orange-peel skin is smoother, and your figure is reshaped and toned.
Does it hurt?
Although it is intense, a good Lipomassage should never hurt. Do not hesitate to speak with your practitioner. During and after the session, you should have a true sense of well-being. If the session is painful, the setting is not adequate.
What is Endermowear?
LPG Endermowear is a clothing specially designed for Lipomassage. For personal use, it ensures perfect hygiene, and its opaque areas protect your privacy during the treatment. The Endermowear's unique composition ensures an excellent grip of the skin for an even more effective Lipomassage.
Do I need to follow a diet along with my Lipomassage sessions?
It all depends on your weight and your beauty goals! All sorts of diets can help you to lose weight, but rarely where you want to. In addition, cellulite is usually unaffected by even the strictest diets. Lipomassage specifically targets these stubborn areas. Ideally, your Lipomassage program will be paired with a varied, balanced diet and regular physical exercise (ex. 30 minutes of walking per day).
What happens to the removed fat?
First of all, sugars and fat are stored by fat cells in fatty tissue. During a Lipomassage session, the LPG Rolls stimulate lipolysis and therefore activate fat release. They are transformed into energy source to fuel the muscles.
Why is it recommended to be active after a Lipomassage session?
To optimize the Lipomassage results, physical exercise or fast walking after each session helps to burn fat released during the session, easy as that! Do the results last? Results appear quickly and last. After a program, one time per month is generally sufficient to maintain the effects of the Lipomassage.
Are there any side-effects?
If used correctly there shouldn’t be any side effects. Clients are advised to drink plenty of water after the treatment to help flush toxins.
Does endermologie remove lumps & bumps after Liposuction?
LPG Endermologie Lipomassage helps to move the fluid by gently pumping it back into the lymph vessels. Reducing the swelling can reduce discomfort. Without Lymph Massage the inflammation can evolve into fibrosis. Many doctors prescribe Lymph Drainage Therapy after liposuction to make sure their patients get the best possible results from their procedure. Almost 100% of patients after liposuction consider the treatment beneficial.
How many sessions will I need before I see cellulite removal?
Most women notice initial changes in the fluid retention and skin appearance within six or seven treatments, however, to smooth out the dimpled effect of cellulite, more treatments will be needed. We suggest you will see improvements between one to three courses of treatment (1 course being 10 treatments). Again, your age, lifestyle and hormonal status will determine the speed of your results.
