The efficiency of endermologie® technique in the treatment of cellulite is due to its action on venous and lymphatic circulation, fibrosis and lipolysis. These properties have been proven in numerous studies. But what about its lasting effect?

In 2004, a study was able to demonstrate if the observed effects on cellulite after endermologie® sessions were maintained over time when the treatment is stopped.

In this study, 30 women with Grade 2 cellulite were monitored for 6 months after a 8-week treatment of 16 sessions (Grade 2 corresponds to a cellulite appearance that disappears when lying down).

THESE WOMEN WERE DIVIDED INTO 3 GROUPS AT THE END OF THE 16 SESSIONS :

GROUP 0 : 10 women stopped the endermologie® treatment immediately after the sessions

GROUP 1 : 10 women continued with one session/month

GROUP 2 : 10 women continued with 2 sessions/month.

HERE ARE THE RESULTS OF THE STUDY:

The treatment of cellulite with endermologie® technique considerably modifies the structure of the skin: the improvement mainly relates to quantitative criteria.

During the 8-week treatment, centimeter measurements, thickness of the skin fold and surface of the cellulite evolve very favourably. Standardised photographs highlight a thinning of the thighs, particularly visible on the inner side (widening of the inter-thigh triangle) and on the buttocks.

After 6 months of follow-up and by comparison with the effect obtained at the end of the 8-week treatment, there is an excellent sustained effect (almost 100%) in the group without maintenance treatment and an additional effect in all groups with 1 or 2 sessions per month respectively. It is the maintenance treatment with 2 sessions per month that has the greatest potential with an additional improvement of 40 to 50% depending on the measurement.

 

 

THIS IS THE DEMONSTRATION THAT THE BENEFITS OF endermologie® SESSIONS ARE LONG-LASTING (AT LEAST 6 MONTHS!) AND THAT MAINTENANCE SESSIONS SHOULD NOT BE NEGLECTED.
