Lipomassage by Endermologie Questions And Answers
What is cellulite?
Cellulite is deposits of fat and other material trapped in pockets of connective tissue beneath the skin. It causes progressive dimpling, also called “orange peel” or “cottage cheese” appearance of the skin. About 90 % of women are affected by it, after they reach puberty.
How does Lipomassage affect the appearance of the skin?
Lipomassage is a mechanized technique, combining regulated suction and two rollers to symmetrically, and rhythmically, fold and unfold the skin. As the deepest layer of fat becomes less adhesive, less glutinous, blood flow increases, thereby allowing the metabolic byproducts to pass through the body by normal physiological methods. At the same time, the fibers that connect the skin to the muscle are being stretched. Through repeated treatments, the fat cells shrink and reshape. Shrinking fat cells....stretching connective tissue.....eliminating trapped fluids.....and there's the magic of Lipomassage!
How is Lipomassage different from Liposuction?
Lipomassage by Endermologie® is a non-surgical, noninvasive procedure, not requiring anesthesia or breaking of the skin. There is no pain or downtime experienced with Lipomassage. Plastic surgeons all over the country do, in fact, recommend Lipomassage as part of the Liposuction process. Several treatments before surgery will make the fat softer, and easier for the surgeon to extract. Treatments after surgery will smooth out the lumps and the bumps.
How often should I have a treatment?
Twice per week is optimal, with at least one day in-between treatments. In certain cases, three times per week is advisable. Once you’ve reached your plateau, you’ll want to maintain your appearance with one treatment each month or as needed.
How long before I see results?
Everybody is different, but most of my clients start noticing results within as few as 6 or 7 treatments; though, dramatic results are more likely to be noticed after 16 to 20 treatments.
How long is a treatment?
Thirty-five minutes. It is sometimes necessary to go longer, but never more than 45 minutes.
Does it hurt?
Most clients find the sensation quite pleasant, even falling asleep during their treatments! The intensity of the treatment will be adjusted to your own comfort level.
I am overweight; am I a good candidate for Lipomassage?
Though Lipomassage treatments often result in significant changes in body circumference, this is not a weight loss remedy. There is no correlation between weight loss and circumference loss. You are not likely to see improvements to skin texture unless you are close to your ideal weight. However, if you are embarking on a weight loss program, particularly a radical program such as gastric bypass, Lap-Band®, or the like, Lipomassage may help ward off the sagging skin syndrome that often results from rapid weight loss. The key is to receive regular treatments as you lose the weight, keeping your skin taut as you become smaller in circumference. If you wait until the skin is already sagging, Lipomassage is not your answer.
Is Lipomassage only for cellulite reduction?
No! Medics also recognizes Lipomassage in the relief of Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS), minor muscle aches and pains, and muscle spasms. Your muscles will inevitably become sore after a proper workout; muscle soreness and joint pain being frequent problems for athletes. Many people allow themselves to be overcome by the challenges of their exercise program, including severe soreness after workout. The key is to not allow these obstacles to stop or deter you from reaching your full potential. With Lipomassage, you'll feel the difference with enhanced physical performance and endurance during your workout, and you'll notice the effects from better recovery after your workout. See me before vigorous exercise to help energize your muscles and maximize your workout. A treatment beforehand not only increases blood circulation, it also improves the visco-elasticity of the muscles, thereby preventing the minute tears of muscle fibers, and the muscular swelling that causes DOMS. See me to aid in lessening soreness after your workout. Lipomassage helps with the elimination of lactic acid, the drainage of inflammation, and relieves stiffness to provide greater flexibility. Those who incorporate Lipomassage into their workout routines, enjoy an improved comfort in everyday life, as well as improved static and dynamic strength.
Can I receive treatments if I am pregnant?
Though no correlation has been found between Lipomassage and pregnancy complications, for liability reasons, I cannot treat pregnant clients. But we can get started as soon as six weeks after delivery.
Why do I have to wear a body suit during my treatment?
The body suit allows the treatment head to glide easily; otherwise, it would stick on, and pinch bare skin. It also keeps the treatment head clean and helps maintain modesty.
What are the risks or complications of Lipomassage?
Everybody is different, so temporary, mild bruising, sensitivity reactions, and broken capillaries might occur. Simply inform your technician and she will adjust the power to your comfort level.
Will this work for me?
There is no guarantee, but, statistically, ninety percent of all Lipomassage clients do notice favourable improvement in cellulitic areas.
Do I need to do anything to get good results?
Yes, drink sufficient amount of water. You will receive information during your initial treatment on the amount of water your body requires.
