LPG Endermologie is a gentle, mechanical massage designed to improve lymphatic drainage and skin tone and smooth the appearance of cellulite. The treatment is relaxing giving a marvelous feeling of well being.
Endermologie, a sub-dermal approach to treating cellulite, was pioneered by LPG Systems in France in the 1990s. The positive results have been confirmed by scientific studies conducted in leading American and European universities. Endermologie is FDA approved. This high tech treatment involves the use of a motorized device with two adjustable rollers and controlled suction, which creates a symmetrical skin fold. The skin gently folds and unfolds under the continuous action of the rollers allowing for smooth and regulated deep tissue mobilization. As the viscosity of the subcutaneous fat layer decreases, blood flow and lymphatic drainage increase, facilitating the elimination of excess fluid and metabolites, while improving overall cellular function.
What results can I expect?
Your treatment goals will be discussed with you at your consultation and the appropriate programme selected. The treatment is designed to eliminate fatty deposits and enhance skin quality and circulation. The skin will appear more “ironed” and less lumpy.
Endermologie is an excellent complement to liposuction (which decreases volume and helps body shape). Plastic Surgeon, Mr Gateley will discuss post op Endermologie with you at your surgical consultation.
Otherwise you should see an improved physical appearance, the relaxing, soothing action of Endermologie has an undisputable stress-lowering effect.
How long are the treatment sessions?
Each session lasts around 35 minutes at the rate of two per week.
What is cellulite?
Cellulite results from a build-up of fat in the adipocytes (sub-cutaneous fat cells) and the retention of water in the surrounding areas (dermis and hypodermis). As the adipocytes continue to grow, the envelopes containing them lose their shape and pull on their cutaneous anchoring points, giving the skin its “orange peel” appearance. At this stage the main problem is that the process is self-sustaining as a result of a reduction in blood circulation, causing in turn stagnation of the metabolic waste, nutritional impoverishment and congestion of the connective tissue, which loses its elasticity and becomes fibrous. This extremely unsightly condition results in cellulitic areas that are unresponsive to physical exercise and to even the strictest slimming diets..
What our clients say
I have had endermologie treatments before which are good but adding Accent doubles the result. It worked brilliantly on firming the thin skin on the inner thigh
After only two treatments my tummy feels much tighter, I am very pleased.
