every woman's worst enemy. The cottage cheese-like fat
deposits are often the result of genetics and cannot be
improved with diet, exercise, or creams. Even if you're rail
thin or run ten miles every day, you still can suffer from
cosmetic surgery procedures like liposuction were used to
reduce its appearance, but that merely sucks out the extra
fat. It doesn't reduce the dimpling effect that cellulite
creates. The problem is that cellulite comprises the topmost
layer of fat below the skin's surface. Liposuction targets
fat below this.
solution is there for this unfortunate curse of cottage
cheese thighs? A new cosmetic surgery technique called
Endermologie may finally smoothen those dimples once and for
all. The procedure uses a massage technique that irons out
the skin. Rollers penetrate deep into the tissue while
suctioning and relocates the skin. This helps diminish the
appearance of pits on the surface of the skin. For optimal
results, multiple sessions over an extended period of time
are suggested. Anywhere from 15 to 30 treatments may be
necessary with continued sessions for a lifetime afterwards
to maintain the smoothened appearance.
The initial 20
or so sessions will be comparable in price to a single dose
of liposuction, or close to $2,000. But since Endermologie
requires multiple treatments, in the end it will cost
considerably more. However, while not a permanent procedure
like liposuction, it is the only one that successfully
candidates for the procedure are healthy men and women of
around middle age when cellulite is more noticeable but
still controllable. Having healthy weight and being
physically fit is important to achieve the desired results.
Those who are overweight or do not exercise regularly will
see disappointing or no results at all. Drinking plenty of
water before the procedure and habitually afterwards is also
suggested by cosmetic surgeons. The skin should be well
hydrated and cared for in order for the process to work.
procedure you can expect to be slightly sore as if you've
just had a very intense massage. If you're prone to
bruising, you might experience this as well. The process
itself can be uncomfortable for some people, but generally
it is well tolerated and can even feel refreshing. You
should be able to return to normal activity immediately, but
a few hours of rest is recommended to avoid further
aggravation or tenderness.
Endermologie is a long-term commitment.
Unlike liposuction, it does not remove
fat, but merely masks its appearance.
The cellulite remains there, but rather
than appearing lumped together, it's
dispersed to camouflage it. As of now
there are still no permanent means to
completely remove unwanted cellulite. If
you're willing to put the effort and
time into repeated sessions,
Endermologie might be a solution to your
cottage cheese woes.
Endermologie is often performed in spas
by certified and experienced technicians
and licensed massage therapists. If you
think Endermologie is right for you,
contact your local technician and
