Non Surgical Skin Tightening
Not every patient needs to lose weight or has a high BMI but they still have the visible signs of excess skin, or poor skin tone that spoils their otherwise slim figure. The following are all common issues that many patients complain about which skin tightening treatment can resolve*:
- Uneven body contours
- Flabby stomachs
- Muffin tops
- Saddle bags
Endermologie Lipo Massage (LPG) is a scientifically proven treatment (based on over 100 scientific studies) that uses rolling suction heads to encourage collagen and elastin production. It is a total body treatment designed to recondition deep beneath several skin layers working to restore soft tissue. The stimulation of the fibro-blast cells increases the production of collagen therefore fully improving the skin texture*.
Non-surgical skin tightening is suitable for Women who:
- Are thin and practice a healthy lifestyle, yet suffer from cellulite dimples, fat deposits or flabby skin.
- Despite using cosmetic products, can’t remove thick, orange peel skin.
- Would like a safe and relatively painless method to lose weight – without undergoing surgery.
- Have experienced the major hormonal fluctuations of puberty, pregnancy, or menopause which have ended in dramatic figure changes.
- Have been able to stay thin over the years, but have not been able to avoid the sagging, thinning skin of advancing age.
- Understand that it’s necessary to reactivate the cells responsible for youthful skin and weight loss (i.e. fibroblasts and adipocytes) and therefore include this treatment in their anti-aging beauty.
Non-surgical skin tightening is also suitable for men who:
- Have a healthy lifestyle (including sport and a balanced diet) but still have stubborn fat such as love-handles.
- Wish to sculpt certain parts of their body.
- Have lost weight and want to keep their skin firm and elastic.
Slimming down fat cells
The balance between the production and reduction of fat is a natural process involving fat cells. Despite a perfectly healthy lifestyle and regular physical activity, the process of storing fat tends to increase over time.
LPG Action: LPG’s skin tightening mechanical ‘roll’ stimulation triggers deep biological responses and thus reactivates the reduction of fat (lipolysis).
Results: Fat is reduced more easily, and your figure is visibly refined. Your curves are reduced in those hard to move to areas*.
Cellulite is a true nightmare for some, and in reality affects nearly 90% of women! And as if that weren’t enough, cellulite areas remain totally unaffected by even the most strictest diets and physical exercise.
It results from both excess fat in fat cells and retained water all around it. By growing larger, the fat cells deform the skin envelope, thus causing an orange peel effect.
LPG Action: LPG’s skin tightening mechanical ‘roll’ stimulation can soften tissue and decompartmentalise fatty cells*.
Results: The skin is smoother and softer, and cellulite gradually is reduced*.
What is it and how does it form?
In addition to the hormonal reasons that may favour its appearance, cellulite results from both a build-up of fat in the adipose tissue (the hypodermic fat cells) and water retention around them (in the dermis and hypodermis). As the adipocytes get bigger the ‘envelopes’ containing them change shape and pull on their anchor points on the skin. This is what causes cellulite’s ‘orange peel’ effect.
This process is self-perpetuating because blood circulation is then slowed down causing stagnation of metabolic waste. These unsightly patches of cellulite can also be painful if the pressure inside these pockets of fat increases.
Why are women affected more than men by cellulite?
Because the fat structures of men and women do not react to fat increase in the same way.
For women, the hypodermis is partitioned vertically by the septa (mesh or net-like fibrous connective tissue forming a network of compartments). The subcutaneous fat cells are pushed upwards, and the septa are pushed downwards. As a result, the fat cells are squeezed into small bulges that translate into the lumps and ‘orange peel’ look of the skin.
Men’s fibrous septa is structured in oblique compartments. When the layer of fat increases there is no deformation.
How is cellulite overcome?
Few people realise that unsightly patches of cellulite are not improved by either physical exercise or even the strictest weight-control diets.
To reactivate the adipose tissue and achieve the reduction of cellulite, it must be stimulated. LPG’s mechanical ‘roll’ stimulation triggers deep biological responses*: Tissue that traps the adipocytes (fat cells) are softened and blood and lymphatic circulation is restarted.
The fat release process (Lipolysis) is reactivated to naturally reduce localised fat and imperfections*.
The Septa: where cellulite originates…
The female hypodermis consists of small ‘recesses’ separated by parallel walls (septa). Due to fat and water which accumulate in these recesses, the walls are compressed, damaging the microcirculation and the natural form of the cell. Because these walls are attached to the dermis they pull at the skin surface while our fat cells push towards the dermis. The result is a skin surface that takes on a bumpy, dimpled ‘orange-peel’ appearance. Over time, as the condition worsens, fat and water become wholly enclosed in a prison of hardened septa composed of fibrous connective tissue.
LPG treatment with its Roll In, Roll Up and Roll Out modes exercises the septa, making them softer and less fibrotic*; relaxing the pressure on the skin’s surface and smoothing the dimpled cellulite appearance. As healthy blood and lymphatic circulation is restored to the conditioned tissue, the mechanical ‘roll’ action triggers a deep biological response which reactivates fat release*.
Firm the skin
Weight changes, pregnancy, or simply age mean that the skin gradually loses its firmness and flexibility. Although sagging skin affects the entire body, some areas are more sensitive to it, including the inner thighs, the tummy, and the arms.
This phenomenon is explained by the slower production of elastin and collagen fibers by the fibroblasts. The skin then loses its substance, and signs of aging appear.
LPG Action: LPG skin tightening ‘rolls’ combined with sequential stimulations act at the core of the fibroblast and activate the production of these essential support fibers (collagen and elastin).
Results: Redensified in depth, the skin becomes visibly firmer and toned*!
Resculpt the figure
Slimming down is nice, but keeping curves and harmonious volume is even better! Affected areas are usually the hips, stomach, and especially the buttocks (whether flat or uneven). Volume is often not symmetrical, and curves lack shape.
LPG Action: LPG skin tightening ‘roll’ can reshape your figure precisely and in a specific location. Volume is rebalanced to restore the body’s ideal shape*.
Results: Contours and curves are reshaped, and your figure becomes harmonious*.
