Cellulite Contouring Treatments - Frequently asked questions:

What is the Cellulite ContouringTreatment?

This treatment, popular in  France for decades, is one of French women's best kept beauty secrets and involves special massage techniques that break down fat deposits, firm the skin, and flush out toxins responsible for cellulite.  The results is a gradual but significant size loss and firming of the area, and can be enhanced by the regular application of body wraps.

How does it work?

Lumps and bulges can be the result of stagnant lymphatic fulid and toxin deposits in the fat layer under the skin.  This treatment uses special techniques that help break down adhesions under the skin, toning the underlying muscles, and flushing excess fluids and toxin buildup.

What areas are treated?

Treatments are applied to different body areas targeted for improvement.  The lower body area includes legs, buttocks and hips.  The upper body area includes the upper arms,abdomen, breasts and upper back.

How is this different from treatments done with machines?

While both approaches deliver satisfying results, the manual technique is more precise, the pressure can be adjusted to your comfort level, and it is performed by a Licensed massage therapist who is trained in this special technique, while most operators of body contouring machines, such as Endermologie have very little training or credentials.

Is it safe?

This natural, non invasive treatment is perfectly safe for any healthy individual as it helps to cleanse the body of toxins and retained fluids.  It is much safer than liposuction or surgery, with no down time or side-effects.

What is involved in the treatments:

For best results, treatments are suggested  3 times a week and take about 30 minutes each.  It takes about 8-10 sessions to reduce about a dress size, and subsequent treatments produce even more spectacular results.  Combining these treatments with a weekly body wrap will further enhance your results.

What results can I expect?

While results vary, dimension loss over several measurement points average 4-12 inches.  Most women find that they will drop one to two dress sizes even without weight loss.  You will be measured and photographed at regular intervals during your treatment series to track your size loss progress.

Do I need to diet and exercize?

Although it is not necessary to diet or exercize to see results, most individuals become so inspired with their size loss that they readily adopt lifestyle changes that help them progress even more rapidly.  A diet rich in natural whole foods, avoiding sugar, preservatives, and processed foods, and regular moderate exercize contribute to keeping your newly detoxified body in the best shape possible.  Drinking lots of fresh water also is key to your success as it will help flush toxins from the body.

Is there a home regimen required to enhance the results of my treatments?

Special treatment products designed to firm the skin and promote circulation in cellulite-prone areas will be recommended for daily home use.

How long will my results last?

In order to maintain your size loss, it is important to modify your eating habits to your new size and maintain some sort of physical activity.  We also recommend a monthly or bi-monthly follow-up treatment and body wrap session.
