I'm trying to learn more about the Endermologie treatment. I'm seeing an even mix of good and bad reviews. More importantly, I'm wondering how to find WHO should do my treatments. What qualifications is one supposed to have to be performing the treatment? I'm in CA.
Who Performs the Endermologie Procedure? Can Anyone Be Trained on the Technique?

Cellulaze before Endermologie
I would recommend you evaluate Cellulaze - a FDA approved one time treatment that utilizes a 1440 nm wavelength laser to accomplish 3 things: 1) melt away fat bulging out 2) break up fibrous septae (attachments) that create the indentations and 3) help thicken the dermis (skin) to prevent future recurrence. The procedure can take between 60-90 minutes and can be completed under local or just IV sedation (depending on the length of your procedure and number of areas being treated). To see your final results takes between 3-6 months. You can visit the cellulaze . com website to learn more about the procedure and find a plastic surgeon who performs the procedure near you. Best of luck!

Endermologie was a treatment that has never shown to give permanent results for cellulite. I would recommend consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon about Cellulaze, the only FDA approved minimially invasive procedure.
Who should perform Endermologie treatments?
Endermologie treatments can be performed for multiple reasons, such as pre and post operatively for liposuction or for cellulite reduction and lymphatic drainage. LPG is the company that manufactures all the endermologie equipment and they provide training and protocol for endermologie technicians. All individuals performing this treatment should have a through understanding of the treatment techniques to obtain optimal results. The technician in my office is a certified medical assistant and has gone through training by LPG to perform endermologie treatments.
Endermologie treatments can be performed by anyone. Endermologie is not considered a medical procedure or treatment. It utilizes gentle suction and rolling of the tissue to temporarily improve the appearance of cellulite. If you are interested in medical treatment for cellulite you should consult a board certified plastic surgeon about the Cellulaze laser procedure.
