FAQ

Yes. Endermologie is the only FDA (Food and Drug Administration, USA) and TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration, Australia) approved treatment for the temporary reduction of cellulite. To be clear, we must advise that the treatment may only be temporary as the factors which cause cellulite may still be present and may cause cellulite to re-form over time, however many people report long-term satisfaction with the results.

Endermologie has had over 140 clinical studies which prove its efficacy. You can find more details about some of these here: www.lpg-pro.com/cosire/articles.php

In order to ensure you get the best results, here at Peninsula Endermologie, we utilise proven Endermologie protocols and techniques and support you in making lifestyle changes that will ensure get the best possible outcome.

 

*Endermologie: taking a closer look. Shack RB. (Aesthetic Surg J 2001;21:259-260.). Abstract.
Recent laboratory investigations have shown that various maneuvers in Endermologie treatment, such as smoothing, kneading, and bouncing, create unique waveforms. Furthermore, the amount of pressure generated with each maneuver depends more on the operator’s technique than on the suction setting or the force of the spring-loaded rollers. This might explain the variable clinical results for Endermologie that have been reported.

The number of treatments required will vary with each individual. It will depend on what stage your cellulite is at and how prepared you are to take up the challenge of clean-eating and exercising that will see you get the best results from your treatment. Your therapist will discuss this in greater depth during your initial consultation.

In general, we recommend an initial course of 14 treatments (visiting twice a week over 7 weeks), with a maintenance program of 1 session every month thereafter. It is expected that most people will begin to see results within 6 to 8 treatments.

Yes, Endermologie is a non-invasive, natural therapy.

Some individuals may experience a slight tingling in more sensitive treatment areas and it is possible for people with sensitive skin to experience some temporary bruising after the treatment.

Due to the nature of the treatment in promoting circulation (vascular circulation is increased 400% and lymphatic circulation is increased 300% according to a 1999 UCLA study), some conditions are contraindicated:

Systemic:

– acute infections or inflammation

– cancer or malignant tumors within the past five years

– diabetes

– heart disease

– pregnancy

– progressive infectious illnesses such as AIDS or Hepatitis

– renal disease/kidney failure

– respiratory disease

– thrombosis/ phlebitis/ anti-coagulant treatment

Local:

– angioma

– hernia

– lipoma

– skin rash/infection

– varicose vains

 

It is also worth noting that people with hypothyroidism, diabetes or undergoing a long-term corticosteroid treatment respond less well to our treatments. In case of doubt, please consult your GP or attending physician.

Yes. Although men are biologically less likely to develop cellulite, due to the difference in the composition of their connective tissue (oblique septa as opposed to vertical) and additional thickness in the skin, they often respond to treatments faster than women. Clinical experience has shown impressive results for problem areas such as “love handles” and loose pectoral tissue.

Endermologie also improves blood flow to treated areas and helps in lymphatic drainage throughout the body to provide relief from muscle spasms and soreness related to previous invasive treatment procedures or after intensive physical exercise.

A structured program of natural, non-invasive Endermologie treatments is an excellent addition to your normal fitness regimen.

Each treatment session takes approximately 35 minutes.

We allow approximately 45 minutes for each appointment to ensure you have plenty of time to change and ask any questions.

 

We recommend that you wear clothes that are easy to change in and out of.

You will be required to purchase and wear a specially-designed body stocking that allows the Endermologie treatment head to glide gently over the body.

You may remove your bra (or at least open the straps at the back) and it is recommended that you wear a g-string under your body stocking.

The body-stockings can be taken home and hand-washed and re-used for each treatment.

Endermologie is a relaxing massage experience.

As the Therapist guides the rollers over the body, you will feel a slight vibration and tingling and warming of the area, due to the increased blood flow.

Some areas of the body are more sensitive than others, but the treatment should never be painful.

Over time, the Therapist may apply more pressure and different manoeuvres to some areas in order to achieve an optimal result, however, your comfort is always of the utmost importance. You do need need to experience discomfort for the treatment to work.

You may experience a slight tingling and redness and your skin will usually feel immediately softer.

As the treatment stimulates your circulation, you may find you may need to visit the bathroom more regularly.

This indicates that your body is already ridding itself of excess fluid containing toxins and fat deposits.

We strongly encourage you to drink plenty of water to facilitate this elimination of toxins.

Many people report feeling more energetic after treatment.

We say, go with it, nothing better than sweating out those toxins to help you achieve your results faster, just bear in mind that your circulation will be boosted for up to 6 hours after treatment, so be aware of your pulse rate.

 

At Peninsula Endermologie we use the lipomassage technique to reduce the appearance of cellulite and target specific areas that may be resistant to diet and exercise.

Endermologie will not reduce weight but it can definitely complement a weight loss program.

Many people use Endermologie as part of a detoxification program to achieve faster results.

We recommend a healthy diet of lean proteins, fruit and vegetables and healthy fats from nuts, seeds, avocados and fish oil etc.

Combining a balanced, healthy diet with lots of water, a regular exercise program (preferably with strength training) and plenty of rest along with a recommended course of Endermologie treatments, will definitely assist you in achieving the results you desire.

Yes! In a recent, independent, study conducted with the team of Professor Humbert (University Hospital of Besançon – France) a scientific breakthrough was discovered: Endermolift is the first and only technique in the world which has been proven to increase natural hyaluronic acid synthesis by 80%.

The innovative effects of ENDERMOLIFT on the skin are as follows

– Natural hyaluronic acid synthesis increased by 80% (skin is replumped and rehydrated from within)

– Natural elastin synthesis increased by 46% (skin is more supple and better-protected against expression lines)

– Firmness is increased by 23%

– Wrinkles are diminished by 21% (nasolabial area)

– Complexion is twice as radiant

You will start to notice changes after the very first session as your skin will feel velvety soft and your complexion more radiant. As each person’s skin reacts differently, depending on their personal circumstances, each person will see changes occurring at different times. For example, it may take longer to notice changes with someone who smokes or has more sun damage.

However, generally, the results become more pronounced after 12 sessions, with the face appearing rested and rejuvenated and contours becoming more defined.

In a recent clinical trial, wrinkles were 21% smoother, skin 23% firmer, dark circles and puffiness more diminished, and the skin softer and twice as radiant within 24 weeks (patients were treated twice a week).

For quicker results, sessions can be scheduled several times a week at the beginning of the treatment (the fibroblast can be constantly stimulated). The first month is important to trigger the process at the skin level.

After that, one session per month is ideal.

Endermolift is a natural, non-invasive treatment that feels relaxing and gentle.

However some people may not be good candidates for treatment, for example if you have:

– rosacea

– a current cancer diagnosis

– a skin rash or infection

– a disease with an inflammatory eruption

– been undergoing anticoagulant treatment

– a blood disease

– herpes

– had recent cosmetic surgery

– recent facial injections such as botox or fillers (wait 2 weeks)

It is also worth noting that people with hypothyroidism, diabetes or undergoing a long-term corticosteroid treatment respond less well to our treatments. In case of doubt, please consult your GP or attending physician.

Traditional facial beauty treatments, such as facials, do not work in the deeper layers of the skin over the long term.

Other techniques such as laser or surgery can lead unwanted side effects such as pigmentation or scarring.

Unlike muscle-freezing injections such as botox, Endermolift smoothes out your wrinkles and allows you to retain your natural expressions.

The Endermolift by Endermologie technique stimulates the skin naturally, painlessly and without any risks, but still achieves visible results.

LPG’s 30 years of experience and countless scientific studies are also a guarantee of remarkable efficiency that stands out in the complex world of beauty solutions.
