Frequently Asked Questions

What is Endermologie?
Endermologie is a one-of-a-kind technique applied to the entire body by an LPG Certified Technician to fight cellulite with:

  • LPG's patented therapeutic massagers, specialized devices boasting unmatched technology

  • Specific maneuvers which work various layers of your skin

What is the principle of Endermologie?
The LPG device is unique because of the patented action of the treatment head that combines gentle suction with two active rollers, creating a symmetrical skin fold. The skin is lifted by gentle suction, while the rollers treat this skin fold. Various maneuvers are applied first on the back, then on the buttocks, thighs, legs, and finally on the abdomen for a 35 minute total body treatment. Your Endermologie technician will individualize your treatment by focusing on your cellulite-ridden areas.

What makes Endermologie different than others ?
Pure "vacuum therapy" has been used for many years, with no success. Endermologie is the first technique to introduce a patented combination of suction plus dual active rollers to create a symmetrical skin fold. Only the LPG family of therapeutic massagers have two rollers to comfortably roll - and unroll - the skin, thus treating the various layers of tissue. Suction alone does not work, and without two rollers, the skin may be pinched or bruised, showing little results.

How does it work?
Endermologie is like performing gymnastics on your skin and underlying tissue; suction and motorized rollers massage your skin, thus exercising it.

LPG's gentle suction mobilizes your connective tissue and the rollers help to increase circulation, thus facilitating the exchange of fluids. Endermologie closes the gap between the two forces that originally created the dimpled appearance, thus fighting the appearance of cellulite.

What is cellulite?
Cellulite is a skin condition, which affects more than 90% of women. Directly related to hormonal variations, it also tends to worsen with age. Resulting from microcirculation impairment; cellulite is a vicious circle involving fluid retention, enlargement of fat cells and an alteration of connective tissue.

Why does the skin look dimpled?
Clinically, the appearance of cellulite is the result of enlarged female hypodermic lobules, which give the skin the dimpled "orange peel" look. As a woman, you have two opposing forces which create this visible appearance of cellulite: Vertical connective tissue pulling down on the skin Fluid retention and enlarged fat cells pushing up on the skin.

Do diet and exercise get rid of cellulite?
NO. Because cellulite is a complex problem, it must be addressed from the subcutaneous layer, to act on fluid retention. Whereas both diet and exercise affect deep fat, they fall to act on the underlying cause of cellulite in the superficial tissue of your skin. Even women who exercise regularly and follow low fat-diets may still have cellulite.

Will anything help?
YES. Endermologie is a technique recognized worldwide which has been proven for over 10 years. Administered with the LPG family of therapeutic massagers, Endermologie is the first technique recognized to fight the dimpled appearance of cellulite by temporarily improving local circulation.
