Take a steamroller to your lumps and bumps. Lipo-massage is an anti-cellulite treatment that uses rollers and light suction to smooth away those dimples in your skin and to encourage blood flow and lymphatic drainage in problem areas.
The treatment, which was pioneered in the 80s, uses a motorised device, which a therapist moves over the skin’s surface, allowing the twin rollers and suction to massage deep into the layers of tissue under the skin.
You’ll be provided with an Endermologie suit, a bit like a body stocking, to protect your skin. A full body treatment is usually recommended, which takes about 30 to 40 minutes. The machine’s combination of sucking and rolling might feel a bit strange at first, but it’s not at all painful.
In terms of the structure of the skin and surrounding tissue, Endermologie is said to:
Beyond cellulite treatment, Endermologie can be adapted to smooth wrinkles and tighten skin on the face, improve healing processes involving connective tissue (targeting scars, swelling, and lymphatic and venal circulatory problems), be used in osteomuscular therapy as well as before and after exercise to help improve athletes' performance.
If you'd like to see an improvement in any of these areas, then it might be worth booking a trial appointment.
Lipo-massage by Endermologie is a patented treatment and was the first treatment approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States, to “temporarily reduce cellulite”.
