Endermologie: Massage therapy by vacuum suction

Endermologie is a deep massage therapy done with vacuum suction so that the skin and subcutaneous tissue (dermis and some fat) is kneaded into a rolling device while negative pressure holds the skin in the rollers.

It may reduce bulk slightly but temporarily. It may smoothen uneven contour with cellulite, but again, it is a temporary effect.

Most patients undergo Endermologie treatment two or three times per week for a month, and then may continue with once per month, or less, to maintain their result.

Endermologie is Deep Tissue Massage with Suction

Endermologie is a painless and nonivasive mechanical massage that stimulates the reactivation of fat release and production of collagen and elastin. With a series of at least 10-14 weekly treatments Endermologie can slim fat cells, smooth cellulite, firm the skin and sculpt your figure.

Unfortunately, the benefits seem to be temporary, so while most patients are pleased with the improvement achieved, a maintenance program will be necessary.

Endermologie is a ineffectual treatment for cellulite using rollers and suction.

Don't waste your money on endermologie.  It's a bogus treatment that deals with kneading skin between two rollers using suction.  It doesn't make sense and doesn't work.
