Why is endermologie® exciting?
endermologie® from LPG® is a non-invasive and pain-free face and body sculpting option, which also has impressive wellbeing benefits, including immune support, and reducing muscle and nerve pain. Its patented combination of mechanical massage, vibration, and suction stimulates the lymphatic system, reactivates dormant cellular activity, and grips the body as if it were a human hand to deliver motorised massages of varying intensities. The result is better circulation and lymphatic drainage; localised resistant fat reduction; and renewed collagen production to combat wrinkles, sagging skin, and cellulite appearance.
How does an endermologie® treatment work?
For body treatments, you slip on a body stocking to allow the handpiece to glide comfortably over bony areas, including the vertebrae. The patented head has a flap on the front that acts like fingers and the roller works like the back of the hand, meaning it delivers tailored massage that is comfortable yet effective on each area. The device also uses varying intensities of suction to encourage good circulation, as well as fascia-release stimulation. The head grabs and releases the skin at a speed of 16 times per second to promote skin elasticity. For the face, the practitioner uses a different head that works similarly to improve lymphatic drainage, collagen production and skin firmness.
Why is stimulating the lymphatic system important?
The lymphatic system helps detoxify the body and is one of the first shields that we have against disease– it provides 20% of our immunity. Our modern lifestyle doesn’t always support our lymphatic health because we are more sedentary, and food is often more processed. That means anything we can do to stimulate the lymphatic system will have wide benefits.
What are the benefits of endermologie® for the face?
The motorised flaps stimulate rejuvenating cells called fibroblasts to boost their natural production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. This leads to an increase in skin radiance, firmness, hydration, and wrinkle smoothing. It is recommended for individuals concerned about signs of ageing, as well as those who think that the sun, stress, pollution and/or smoking is having a detrimental effect on their complexion. Also, a great solution for achieving glow with no downtime, when recovering from jet lag and the effects of late nights, and helping reduce double chin appearance.
What are the benefits of endermologie® for body contouring?
What’s impressive about endermologie® from LPG® for body, is that it works simultaneously on the release of stubborn localised fat and on skin firmness and cellulite for both a slimming and firming effect. The combination of the body roller, motorised flap and sequential suction allows the technology to act directly on the hypodermis and on the fibroblasts, for firming, waistline reduction, and cellulite smoothing. It can specifically target areas resistant to diet and exercise, as well as targeting fluid trapped in your tissues to reduce water retention and the effects of heavy legs and feet.
What are the benefits of endermologie® for wellbeing?
Despite being originally best-known as a slimming treatment, the technology has impressive wider benefits as it works all the way down to the muscle where relaxation and detoxification takes place. As well as promoting overall wellbeing, the deep tissue massage provides relief for sore muscles and it can be used for scar management, including c-sections, burns and mastectomy scars. It has also been used to reduce the symptoms of endometriosis, menopause, and poor pelvic floor health, and before hair transplants for improving circulation pre-bulb transfer.
As it can be used along the spine where nerves merge, it is beneficial for the nervous system, leading to improved energy and sleep. It can even be helpful for people with conditions such as sciatica, fibromyalgia, and MS, by improving the workings of the lymphatic system and overall immune health. This is also why you feel in a deep relaxation mode post-treatment.
Where can it be used?
endermologie® technology can be used from head-to-toe. In fact, it is specifically designed for hard-to-reach areas that are normally impossible to treat manually, from the soles of the feet to the neck and head. There’s almost no part of the body that it cannot treat.
Who can have endermologie®?
endermologie® is suitable for all skin tones. However, it should not be used for individuals undergoing cancer treatment. Those with hypothyroidism or diabetes may respond less well to treatment, and those who are pregnant would require modified or reduced protocols. In case of doubt, please consult your doctor.
How long until you see results?
Results can be seen after one session for facial treatments and after three sessions for the body, but, for optimal results, a course of treatments is recommended, alongside monthly maintenance sessions.
Can I have endermologie® if I have toxin or fillers?
endermologie® is safe to use if you have toxin and fillers under professional guidance. What’s more it has been shown to improve your injectable results as it can prep the skin, maintain results, and reduce side effects. The technology can be used in conjunction with liposuction and laser, as well as chemical peels, microneedling, Hydrafacial®, radiofrequency and threads. It’s even suitable for use alongside surgical interventions, including blepharoplasty and face lifts.
Who makes endermologie® from LPG®?
Back in 1986, the engineer Louis-Paul Guitay invented LPG® endermologie® for the treatment of his scars after an accident, before discovering that it could improve skin quality. The company is now on the eighth generation of its patented technology, with 28,000 professionals using LPG® in more than 100 countries. The technology also has 90 studies published on Medline demonstrating its benefits. New research is pending to support its ability to improve sleep too.
