FOR SKIN SMOOTHING & FIRMING
Endermologie was the first medical treatment FDA approved for cellulite reduction and loss of body circumference developed in 1997 and has a worldwide patent with over 20 years of proven results. Its technique involves a mechanized device with two motorized rollers and regulated suction. This action creates a symmetrical skin fold, which allows for deep tissue mobilization to occur and results in reduction of cellulite and loss of inches over the body.
Body BeneFits is the first location to provide Endermologie to The Woodlands, and has advanced protocols and performed the most procedures than any location in the surrounding area. Sherry Summers-Ball was selected by LPG to travel across Texas and train clinics and medispas on the proper use of the LPG Endermologie equipment, trained on the use of Endermologie for cellulite reduction, post-surgery on healing on the body and face, sport injury healing and scar tissue softening. With her vast knowledge and medical spa business open since 2000, she has provided her staff superior training to perform the most advanced treatments for the optimal benefit of their clients.
Always looking for new technologies, Sherry combines these protocols with numerous other new and advanced medical technologies and experts to provide unparalleled services to her clients.
When fit, health conscious celebrities are challenged by unflattering fat bulges and cellulite but want to keep their sexy curves – famous American fitness coach Gunnar Peterson turns to lipomassage and Endermologie. Gunnar Peterson is the LPG celebrity trainer of such Hollywood stars such as Sylvester Stallone, Penélope Cruz, Jennifer Lopez, Amber Valletta, Gwen Stefani, Matthew McConaughey, and many others.
Aesthetic Surgery Journal (March-April 2001) observed the effect of Endermologie when combined with External Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction (EUAL). Endermologie after EUAL improves results with respect to cellulite and reduces the rate of follow-up revision. Body BeneFits of The Woodlands, Texas has vast experience in post surgery healing and lymphatic drainage using the LPG equipment.
Proven by more than 85 scientific studies, Endermologie is the science of cell stimulation developed in 1997 by LPG. Endermologie reactivates deep dormant cellular activity by mechanically stimulating the skin (mechano-stimulation) which is painless and noninvasive.
Septa are parallel partitions that divide the hypodermis into small cavities containing adipocytes (fat cells). When fat cells grow, these partitions change shape and pull at where they are attached to the skin. Cellulite then appears, along with its inevitable orange peel effect. In women, the subcutaneous fat layer is organized in vertical chambers where cellulite fat is stored. The chambers in men are arranged as small diagonal units, which not only store smaller quantities of fat but are also unlikely to result in cellulite formation. Endermologie relaxes these partitions and improves circulation, and it triggers biological responses which reactivate the removal of stored fat.
So how does Endermologie work? The Roll (rollers) and Lift (valves) treatment heads gently pull the skin tissue, perfectly targeting different areas of the body with a 100% natural treatment, based on the principle of mechano-stimulation. Mechano-stimulation is an action which is recognized and proven by the scientific community. Mechanical stimulation on the surface of the skin sends a signal deep down to the subcutaneous fat cells and fibroblasts to create a physiological response; i.e. activation of collagen and elastin production or activation of lipolysis. The two independent motorized rollers (patented by LPG) gently pull the skin using three directions of rotation, depending on the desired objectives. The various folds treat different types of tissue, including cellulite, adipose, edematous, fibrous, adherent, inflammatory, thin, fragile, and relaxed tissue.
With their micropulses, the Lift heads (patented by LPG) create a wave of tissue that delicately stimulates the skin. Depending on the frequency at which the Lift valves pulse and the chosen suction strength, the Lift heads generate different stimulations for specific beauty, or therapeutic, goals. These frequencies can treat different types of tissue, including edematous, fibrous, fragile, scarred, thin, and wrinkled tissue.
By combining Endermologie with our other high-technology devices, we can individually tailor a total body rejuvenation package which will noticibly improve your cellulite reduction. Endermologie revamps your body from the inside, give you a radiant, energetic glow and putting a bounce back in your step. If trimming down and redefining your body shape is the issue, Endermologie is great for treating cellulite. It is a fantastic enhancement to a diet and exercise program for weight loss.
The latest clinical study, conducted by Professor Max Lafontan at INSERM Toulouse (France), has revealed astounding new findings regarding the efficacy of lipomassage on femoral fat (i.e. adipose tissue of the buttocks, “saddlebags” and thighs) – one of the most stubborn fatty areas of all.
This study was conducted by LPG at the Clinical Research Centre of the Purpan University Hospital in Toulouse, with two objectives: to measure the impact of the LPG technology on fat mobilization and on gene expression by comparing fatty tissue before and after 12 session-treatments. For the study, two evaluation techniques were utilized: microdialysis and DNA microarrays. LPG is the only manufacturer of its kind to conduct a study like this one, which is wholly based on fundamental research. The results showed substantial improvement in subject response to a lipolytic agent, with an average fat release increase of +70% and as much as +100% in hyper-responsive subjects. It also proved an effect on gene expression, which for some subjects was similar to those generated by low-calorie diets.
Professor Max Lafontan, Director of Research at INSERM Toulouse, France said, “I was surprised and very pleased with the results of this study. It’s a significant advance for LPG’s scientific research – and our findings introduce exciting new study opportunities!”
Maximize Your Body Contouring Treatments with Cavitation Ultrasound
Used in combination with Endermologie, Cavitation Ultrasound can help in the general healing process, and reduce scar tissue, after any plastic surgery. This treatment will bring blood flow to the affected area and help the client to reduce swelling and downtime.
Cavitation and Endermologie may also be used as a pre-treatment to liposuction. This intense treatment will aid in the removal of the fat cells of the area(s) to be surgically treated, therefore aiding in less downtime post-op.
