Q. Does it really work? Have you seen results?
A. Yes, it does work, as demonstrated over the past 12 years in thousands of case
studies from around the world. It was enough proof for the FDA to authorize the
manufacturer to claim temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite. The FDA is
renown for its strictest scientific standards world-wide.
Q. How many treatments can I have in
A. The average number of treatments is two per week. If you are simultaneously in the
process of losing a significant amount of weight or if you have a long-term problematic
cellulite condition, one treatment per week is recommended. More than two sessions per
week will not bring faster results.
Q. How long does a session last? Do you work on just
my problem areas?
A. Sessions last an average of 35 minutes. Your problem areas are focused on, but time is
given to other areas to stimulate general circulation and elimination.
Q. How many sessions before I see results?
A. Usually people see changes within 5 or 6 sessions, but 14 is the average number of
Q. How long do the results last?
A. For several months up to a few years, depending on age, lifestyle, and hormonal
changes. Once-a-month maintenance sessions are recommended after completion of the initial
sessions. How long do I have to wait after liposuction or a tummy tuck to receive a
treatment? Before receiving a treatment, wait until the compressive garments come off,
normally 4 to 6 weeks.
Q. Does this replace diet and exercise?
A. No. In fact, it is highly recommended that you add diet and exercise to the
routine you follow while undergoing ENDERMOLOGIE® treatments. In most cases,
this improves results.
Q. Does this treatment work on men also?
A. Definitely. For problem areas such as "love handles" and loose pectoral
tissues, results have been excellent.
Q. Does the machine tone the
skin? Will I lose weight?
A. You will most likely notice an improvement in skin tone after using the machine.
Appearance of stretch marks and loose skin may be improved. It is not a weight loss
machine. However, many clients report being able to lose weight, especially fat weight,
more easily while using the machine than they ever could before.
Q. What is the difference between ENDERMOLOGIE®
and liposuction? Can it be used instead of liposuction?
A. ENDERMOLOGIE®, unlike liposuction, does not involve breaking through the
skin in any way. Some people try ENDERMOLOGIE® first and then choose to wait
to receive liposuction. We frequently recommend ENDERMOLOGIE® in addition to
liposuction to get a better and smother result from liposuction.
Q. Why are photos taken before & after treatment?
A. Photos are taken to provide an accurate record of improvements and to help the
ENDERMOLOGIE® practitioner provide better treatments through comparative
Q. I don't want anyone to see my pictures. Do you
protect my privacy?
A. No one but your therapist and attendant staff will see your photos. If you wish,
and you sign a release to that effect, your photos may be used for educational and
Q. Why are pantyhose worn when receiving treatment?
A. Pantyhose allows the ENDERMOLOGIE® treatment head to glide more easily
over the body and insures optimal hygiene.
Q. What sensations will I experience during the
treatment? Does it hurt?
A. The sensation is similar to a deep massage. Most clients find it quite pleasant.
The strength of the treatment can be individually adjusted to your comfort level.
Q. What will I feel afterwards?
A. Most clients report a feeling of relaxation and an increase in energy. Since the
lymph system is stimulated, it is recommended that you drink at least two liters of water
every day during the duration of your treatment in order to aid in elimination.
Q. Are there any side effects?
A. Minor, temporary bruising may occur.
Q. Can I receive treatments if I am pregnant?
A. No correlation has been found between ENDERMOLOGIE® and complications
in pregnancy. However, it is recommended that during pregnancy you do NOT receive
