Your face endermologie® questions

What are the contraindications?

Strict contraindications to the endermologie® technique include:

- Cancer in progression
- Infection or skin rash
- Disease with inflammatory eruption
- Anticoagulant treatment
- Blood disease
- Herpes
- Cosmetic surgery (ask for a medical certificate)
- Injections (wait 2 weeks)

People with hypothyroidism, diabetes, or undergoing a long-term corticosteroid treatment respond less well to our treatments. In case of doubt, please consult your general practitioner or your attending physician.

How long will it take to see the first results?

From the very first sessions, your skin is brought back to life! Your complexion becomes radiant immediately, your skin texture is refined and your skin more supple thanks to the reactivation of the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. The results then keep improving after each session. 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 enough. A beauty anti-aging lifestyle to be adopted all year round!

Is it painful?

No, the session is very pleasant. The settings are customized depending on skin sensitivity. After the first few minutes, you can feel a “cellular awakening” and the acceleration of blood circulation. The skin is re-oxygenated and a feeling of well-being sets in. It is a unique sensory experience!

There are many other techniques for facial anti-aging treatments. What differentiates the endermologie® technique from the other techniques?

Traditional facial treatments do not act in depth over the long term.
Other techniques can damage the skin or have side effects. The endermologie® technique stimulates the skin naturally, painlessly and without any risks for visible results. The face endermologie® treatment helps you to age well and to retain your natural expressions. 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.

Can I continue using my cosmetic products during the endermologie® treatment program?

During your sessions, your skin will need a different and more appropriate nutrition. LPG cosmetics are the solution, and they will fight against the skin’s built-up “drug tolerance” to the main active ingredients.
Thanks to their unique composition, LPG cosmetics help to accelerate the visible effects on the skin during the treatment program (+50% results!). They are recommended after a personalized skin diagnosis in line with the protocols of the device. LPG practitioners are experts who know all about how the skin works. They will help you select a comprehensive treatment tailored to your goals!

Your body endermologie® questions

What are the contraindications?

Strict contraindications to the endermologie® technique include:

- Cancer in progression
- Infection or skin rash
- Disease with inflammatory eruption
- Anticoagulant treatment
- Blood disease

People with hypothyroidism, diabetes, or undergoing a long-term corticosteroid treatment respond less well to our treatments. In case of doubt, please consult your general practitioner or your attending physician.

How long will it take to see the first results?

From the very first session, you will feel results: your skin will be more supple, the areas affected by cellulite heat up, and the circulation is stimulated. Session after session, the results are intensified: the orange-peel aspect gradually disappears, leaving you with smoother skin. After 12 sessions, the skin is firmer and stubborn fat is eliminated (+70% fat release). Don’t wait until the end of your treatment program to evaluate the results with your specialist. Choose a “test” garment that will serve as a benchmark for the areas where you want to lose weight!

Will the results last?

The best way to answer this question is with a metaphor: exercising two weeks during your summer vacation won’t keep you fit for the rest of the year, will it? The same is true for your endermologie® sessions. During the attack phase (2 sessions per week for 1 month), the aim is to send enough messages to our slimming cells to create a sustainable cellular awakening. Within a few weeks, the technique will release stubborn fat, smooth cellulite, reshape your curves or firm the skin depending on your objectives. After this intensive period, it is important to continue stimulating these cells regularly so they don’t fall back into their old, lethargic habits. The good news is that one session per month is enough to reactivate this cellular memory and to optimize the slimming and firming effects already achieved. Just like physical exercise, endermologie® becomes a new lifestyle.

Is it painful?

No, an endermologie® session should never hurt! If the skin is being hurt, it will protect itself and lock the processes of fat release. This would be the exact opposite of the desired effect. This is why during the initial assessment, the goals for your figure are defined and the most sensitive areas are identified (in case of fibrous cellulite for example). During the treatment, the practitioner continuously adjusts the device settings and power depending on how you feel and on your skin quality. Well-being is the only thing you should experience during each session!

Should I diet and exercise at the same time?

It all depends on your weight and on your beauty objectives. Almost any diet can help you lose weight, but not always where you want it. Orange peel skin and localized fat in certain areas of the body (saddlebags, buttocks or thighs) are immune to diets and exercise. To get rid of them, the endermologie® technique has proven to be particularly effective. The ideal is to associate your endermologie® program with a varied and balanced diet as well as regular physical exercise for optimal efficiency.

I have a problem with water retention. Are endermologie® sessions an effective solution?

Yes, endermologie® treatments stimulate circulatory exchanges to eliminate excess water while providing an immediate and lasting sensation of well-being. Over the course of your sessions, your legs become more refined and regain their natural shape while the overall quality of your skin improves.

I am pregnant. Can I get endermologie® treatments?

During your pregnancy, the only effective treatments will be the drainage of the legs as well as anti-aging facial and hand treatments. Please consult your general practitioner beforehand.

I thought that a quick diet and a few ab exercises would be enough to lose my belly, but apparently the problem is sagging skin.
What can I do?

A little extra belly does not always mean it is storing fat. It could just be sagging skin and in this case, diets or ab exercises won’t help you. To effectively treat this area, the initial assessment is fundamental. What is the test? Just gently pinch the skin fold. If the skin between your fingers is thin and the fold lacks substance, it is a sagging skin problem. Other telltale signs often include wrinkled skin, stretch marks or a “frowning” belly button. The endermologie® treatment uses specific maneuvers to stimulate the youth cells (fibroblasts) at the skin surface, making it firmer and more toned.

Why do I need to wear a special Endermowear® suit?

The Endermowear® suit is THE outfit to be worn during a body endermologie® session. Strictly used for personal use, it guarantees perfect hygiene and its opaque areas respect your privacy during the treatment. The unique composition of the Endermowear® suit provides excellent adhesion to the skin fold for an even more effective endermologie® session.

Can the endermologie® technique be used as an alternative to liposuction?

Some women consider liposuction as the last resort to get rid of their stubborn fat. However, it has been scientifically proven that the endermologie® technique is able to naturally release localized and stubborn fat with the additional benefit of reshaping curves, eliminating cellulite and firming the skin. Painless and without any side effects, the endermologie® technique also stands out as the solution of choice in cases where liposuction is not recommended (circulatory disorders, insufficient volume, etc.). However, if liposuction is undertaken, it is strongly recommended to combine the two techniques to optimize the results. Before the operation, the sessions prepare the tissues and soften the skin to facilitate the surgical procedure. After the operation and if recommended by your surgeon, they facilitate the resorption of edemas and hematomas and effectively improve skin quality. In any case, a comprehensive review should be carried out / will help to determine the best approach to adopt.

Endermologie:
a scientifically proven technique

Because asserting something is not good enough, LPG has always made a point of backing up its claims with scientific proof. This is why since 1999, LPG Systems has joined an international scientific committee of research (COSIRE) composed of renowned experts – researchers, doctors, dermatologists, surgeons, and physiotherapists – to improve and enhance the quality of its scientific studies.
