I have done endermology and noticed considerable difference after about the 6th treatment. It was about $75 per treatment or buy a package of 10 treatments which came out to about $65 each.
However, once you stop the massage treatments, the cellulite comes back - so unless you want to do it for the rest of your life, I wouldn't spend the money unless you have a specific trip planned that you want to look good for.
i was just lurking...and really got a bit annoyed myself..it's worse than the frickin' "rubber glass" gang..funny but even a few of those wound up getting liposuction and were asking questions on the liposuction forum...hoping none of us "lurkers" would notice..
Sunny's a bit more aggressive...
i did look at the website..no "before" and "after" pictures, but a whole lot of "sensationalism"...anytime you see an exclamation mark after every sentence, yep..you got it..
and skinny models dangling they butts in front of the camera..i certainly don't see Sunny's butt..sorry, but the whole thing is just plain old annoying..$99 for a jar..at least endermologie has a track record..
Hey Sunny, i'm going to put you to the test like i did the "rubber glass" gang...Could you show us some before and after pics of clients, or maybe yourself, that this product works?
Please, spare us the sells talk..we've seen enough already..
"Here it comes..".. "i'm sorry you feel this way..." "I wish you peace and happiness..yada yada yada" you should - if you expect me to buy your product...
Back to endermologie.......I think there is something to it. I purchased the Wellbox prior to my lipo surgery. It's basically an at home endermologie unit. I decided to try it to help reduce swelling post op by doing my own lymph massage and figured it may help with the cellulite which they say is worse post lipo. I have to say, it was incredibly effective with the swelling. I'm 2 mos post op and barely swell. I also noticed in my 2 mos pics that the cellulite does look better. Admittedly, I have not been using it as much lately, but I'm now motivated to be more faithful. It is pricey but depending on what the treatments cost in your area, it may worth it. I won't part with mine now.
I am on my second round of Endermologie treatments, having completed the first round two years ago. It works very well, and the results remain for a very long time. The drawbacks are the expense and the need for patience to see results, which for me came at about the eighth treatment. You will need twenty to thirty treatments for optimal results.
I had about thirty treatments two years ago. When I was finished, I should have continued to have about one treatment a month to maintain the results, but I didn't. Consequently, I am having another round of treatments now, two years later. I must say that this round of treatments is noticeably more effective -- I started seeing results immediately. Now, after my fourth treatment, I am significantly smoother than when I started this round about three weeks ago.
Your endermologist should emphasize the importance of drinking lots of water daily during your treatment. It actually does make a considerable difference in your results.
Sunday will mark my tenth Endermologie treatment of this most recent round (two years after a previous series of thirty treatments). The results have been fairly remarkable. First, let me say that I still have some bumpiness on my thighs and butt. Having said that, these irregularities are apparent only in certain light. I wouldn't hesitate now to wear shorts or even a bikini. Not only has the treatment smoothed away my cellulite, it also appears to have trimmed me down a bit.
I highly recommend Endermologie to anyone willing to accept realistic results, i.e., I don't believe the cellulite will ever absolutely & entirely disappear, and the impressive results of Endermologie are temporary -- you have to keep having treatments once a month to maintain your results, and you may eventually need a follow-up series of treatments as the cellulite returns.
Unfortunately, the main cause of cellulite is due to the different length of connective tissue threads that run through our fat layers. These threads form odd-shaped capsules of fat that make our skin look ripply and uneven on the outside. Lipo can add some extra lumpiness from scar tissue formation, and that just takes TIME to whittle down.
Think of the old-fashioned mattress with buttons holding the cotton ticking in place. Now imagine that mattress 50 years later, when some threads have stretched, some broken, others remain the same. That's what's going on in our thighs and BUTTS! Women are more prone to cellulite cuz our connective threads are more apt to stretch out at uneven lengths over time. Endermologie is not going to change the length of these connective threads. Its deep, vigorous massage MAY have a tiny, temporary impact on the shape of the fat cells around those threads, and hence we look a tad better for the day.
That said, I also had 10 Endermologie treatments following lipo on my abs. That lipo left a hard, garden hose of lumpy tissue that ran across my abs. The treatments helped diminish the lumpiness about 5% (pretty little), felt good, and cost about $75 or so per.
My overall cellulite is FAR better improved from healthy eating, regular exercise and drinking a good amount of water. Sorry to be so boring, but there's no magic bullet for cellulite. It's going to be on almost every woman's body - sooner or later.
Vaser High Def lipo on torso, neck & knee lipo, Neck, Midface lift, Brow Lift, Upper Eye Bleph, Lower Face lift, IPL, Sclerotherapy, Restylane, Juvederm, Botox and fat injections. Um, what's missing?! I've had it all.
I have heard that subcision os a possible treatment which would work by breaking the connective bands. Seems to me though you might then have a bunch of saggy skin too after that though then need a lift. Weight loss actually made my cellulite appear much worse along with having saggy skin on my thighs, by the time I got low enough for them to be affected the rest of me was looking terrible and scrawny. I gained back enough to where the rest of me pretty well looks ok and there are a few localized areas I want trimmed. When I pull the skin up the lumps and dents disappear so I plan to have lipo, tl and a tt in the future. I'll ask about the subcision next time I see my ps.
I was wondering about endermoligie and thinking it seems like it would stretch the skin which might not be desirable - anybody know about that aspect?
