Endermologie® FAQs

Why do women have cellulite and not men?
Estrogen is the key hormone involved in cellulite formation. As a result, 90% of women have cellulite while most men do not, unless they have hormonal imbalance. Furthermore, the hypodermis (subcutaneous fat layer) is structurally different in women, and it permits more fat storage than the male hypodermis.

Can diet and exercise eliminate cellulite? 
Cellulite occurs in the subcutaneous fat layer, which responds mainly to hormones and minimally to diet and exercise. Therefore, this approach is not an effective means for cellulite reduction. 

Why are diet and exercise encouraged? 
Inadequate nutrition and poor lifestyle tend to worsen the appearance of cellulite. It stands to reason that a balanced diet and regular exercise can to a certain degree prevent the advanced stages of cellulite. Diet and exercise are recommended because they are complementary to Endermologie.

Which treatment is most effective to treat cellulite?
Currently the most effective treatment approved by the FDA is Endermologie. 

How many Endermologie sessions are required?
Endermologie treatments are generally 30 minutes in duration, twice a week. The average women will need 15 to 18 treatments to achieve optimal results. Once a month follow-up treatments are usually recommended to maintain results.

Can men benefit from Endermologie®?
Most men do not have cellulite but still benefit from body shaping and toning of the skin. Areas that respond well to Endermologie are the back, abdomen, and “love handles”. 

Can Endermologie be applied as a facial treatment? 
Endermologie can be used as a facial treatment. By stimulating the production of new collagen fibers, it can improve skin tone and slow down the aging of the skin.
