Most people think Cellulite, which commonly appears on the arms, hips, thighs, and buttocks of women, is caused by being overweight. Actually the condition is due to displaced fat and toxins that are trapped in tight fibrous bands in the dermal layer of the skin. Cellulite is NOT CURABLE. The dimpling appearance can be improved with Endermologie, which is an FDA approved therapeutic treatment that increases local blood flow to the area and improves skin texture.
Endermologie, first developed in France, is a non-invasive, non-surgical, treatment that results in a change in the skin’s texture and appearance. A patented handheld device produces a rolling and sucking motionthat stimulates blood flow and gradually promotes a smoother and slimmer appearance. The best candidate for Endermologie™ is a patient within 20 pounds of their ideal body weight. This treatment is most effective when combined with a healthy diet and exercise.
Many patients see results within the first month of treatment. Two sessions per week for six to eight weeks is recommended to achieve optimal results. Each session lasts approximately one hour. Once the initial series is complete, a monthly maintenance is recommended.
