Endermologie was originally developed in France to treat soft tissue injuries. But physicians soon discovered that this non-invasive treatment, which improves circulation, also had an effect on pockets of fat. It loosened trapped fat cells, causing unwanted fat to seemingly “melt away.”
The technique involves massaging the skin with state-of-the-art rollers—an action that appears to encourage fat cells to expend energy, then deflate and dissolve. The resultant fatty fluids are washed away via the body’s lymphatic system.
As the treated area is massaged, the skin is suctioned and stretched, smoothing it out and diminishing any dimpling
Endermologie: FDA approved treatment
Approved by the Food and Drug Administration, Endermlogie can be used to re-contour any stubborn areas of fat on the body. It’s also used to treat a host of muscular and soft tissue injuries and disorders, including arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromylagia, frozen shoulder, lymphedema and low back pain.
Your doctor will ask you to drink several glasses of water daily during your treatment period, which will probably consist of a weekly session for 10 to 20 weeks. The water is necessary to encourage your body to flush out the fat loosened and liquefied by the procedure.
An Endermologie session, which seldom last more than 45 minutes, resemble a deep tissue massage. The pressure of the rollers on your skin will be progressively adjusted to massage deeper levels of your adipose (fat) tissue. The treated area may feel sore for several hours, although you can immediately return to work or other activities. Because Endermologie’s effects are temporary, you’ll need follow-up treatments once a month or so to retain its effects.
