It was one of the world’s best-kept secrets. But now, the secret is out! What is it? What’s so great about it? And why does it deliver such amazing results? Read on!
Due to any number of reasons, hormonal changes, heredity, and age being the most common, 80% to 90% of post-adolescent women lose circulation to the skin. This causes fluids and toxins to become immobilized, cutting off fat cells from nutrition and waste removal. Fat cells then become engorged, swelling up to 300 times in size, and push up on the skin. At the same time, the fibers that connect the skin to the muscle shorten and pull down on the skin.
Fat cells pushing up…..connective tissue pulling down……and there’s your cellulite dimple!
Endermologie is a technique invented in France in the late 1970’s. In the 1990’s, it was introduced to the United States, and won FDA clearance for the temporary reduction of cellulite. Endermologie is a mechanized technique, combining regulated suction and two rollers to symmetrically, and rhythmically, fold and unfold the skin. The forward and backward action stimulates blood circulation and fluid and toxin elimination. Through repeated treatments, the fat cells shrink and reshape.
Shrinking fat cells…..eliminating trapped fluids…..smoothing the skin….and there’s the magic of Endermologie!
Many of us hit the gyms at the first onset of cellulite, and are frustrated because we find that exercise doesn’t help. Even Fitness “Guru”, Denise Austin, is plagued by it; so the rest of us need not feel ashamed! Cellulite is formed within the layer of fat just underneath the skin, and cannot be influenced by exercise and diet. While nothing is better in the battle against the volume of fat, diet and exercise do eliminate fat in deeper fat layers, but do not address the cause of cellulite within the outermost fat layer where it “lives”.
UCLA studies have found that Endermologie increases blood circulation up to 400% for up to 6 hours after treatment, and lymphatic drainage up to 300% for up to 4 hours after treatment. This not only aids in cellulite reduction, but also pain reduction, and an overall sense of well-being. A Vanderbilt study found that collagen production increases from 27% to 130%, resulting in improved body contour as skin becomes tighter and firmer. Endermologie also encourages exfoliation, to enhance skin clarity, and lipolysis, the process of fat-release, to aid in slimming.
Endermologie is 100% natural – no needles, no lasers, no lotions – nothing but relaxing 35-minute treatments. Being organic, Endermologie is a process – each treatment’s effects building upon the previous treatments. On average, most clients will require two 35-minute treatments per week for eight to ten weeks in order to reach a plateau; though, most will start seeing the first onset of improvement around 6 or 7 treatments. You must drink lots of water – especially on treatment days; Endermologie will release toxins into your bloodstream, and you must rid your body of toxins if you want your skin to look good. As well, Endermologie will release fat – repeat: “release” fat, not “burn” it – it’s up to you to burn it. Just “move” for 20 or 30 minutes on treatment days before retiring to bed. Just like a haircut or manicure, results must be maintained. One treatment per month is enough to maintain most clients’ results, and to continue to make slight gains. No one “thing”, be it product or service, works on every “body”. The industry enjoys a 90% success rate; I enjoy a 92% lifetime success rate.
There you have it: twice-a-week pampering…..drink lots of water afterward……do a little cardio afterward…..taper down to once-a-month touch-ups after 8-weeks or so…..and say “Hello Sleek Physique!”
