Endermologie is a non-invasive technique for reducing the appearance of cellulite. Cellulite often shows up as dimpling on the skin, sometimes called the cottage cheese look, even in those who are fit. The look of cellulite does not necessary diminish with weight loss and liposuction fails to address this top layer of fat under the skin.
French plastic surgeons developed the techniques used in endermologie. The process is now patented in the US as well. Endermologie uses rollers that often feel like deep tissue massage, over problem areas of the skin. At the same time, suction is used to redistribute the skin and remove dimpling.
How Does Wellbox Fight Cellulite
Treatments are usually performed by a professional using the Cellu M6®, Lift M6®, and Lipo M6® machines or at home with the Wellbox ( which is a miniature version of the other machines intended for use in spa / beauty centers).
The Roll (rollers) and Lift (valves) treatment heads gently pull the skin tissue, perfectly targeting different areas of the body and face with a 100% natural treatment, based on the principe of mechano-stimulation.
Endermologie® can be used to treat different skin areas with a very wide range of application.
What is mechano-stimulation?
Mechano-stimulation is an action principle that is recognized and proven by the scientific community. Mechanical stimulation on the surface of the skin sends a signal deep down to the cells (ex: fat cells and fibroblasts) to provoke a physiological response (ex: activation of collagen and elastin production or activation of lipolysis).
The two independent motorized rollers (patented by LPG) gently pull the skin using three directions of rotation, depending on the desired objectives. The various folds treat different types of tissue, including cellulite, adipose, edematous, fibrous, adherent, inflammatory, thin, fragile, and relaxed tissue.
With their micropulses, the Lift heads (patented by LPG) create a wave of tissue that delicately stimulates the skin. Depending on the frequency at which the Lift valves pulse (4, 8, or 16 pulses/second) and the chosen suction strength (adjustable intensity), the Lift heads generate different stimulations for specific beauty and therapeutic goals. These frequencies can treat different types of tissue, including fibrous, edematous, scarred, wrinkled, thin, and fragile tissue.
The Importance of Septa
Septa are parallel partitions that divide the hypodermis into small cavities containing adipocytes (fat cells).
When fat cells grow, these partitions change shape and pull at where they are attached to the skin. Cellulite then appears, along with its inevitable orange peel effect. Lipomassage first relaxes these partitions and improves circulation. At the same time, the mechanical action of the Roll heads triggers biological responses and reactivates the removal of stored fat.
