What is Cellulite?
Superficial pockets of trapped fat on your thighs, buttocks, and abdomen making lumpy, dimple ridden skin. It happens to 90% of post-adolescent women, and is the bane of most.
While age, stress, overeating, insufficient water consumption and lack of exercise can contribute to the formation of cellulite, smoking has also been blamed as a factor?
Yet another reason to butt out, cellulite can actually develop and worsen with smoking because it constricts the skin’s capillaries, disrupts healthy connective tissue, and decreases Vitamin C levels in the body which are vital to collagen production. All of these factors adversely effect circulation and skin quality, allowing toxins to become trapped within enlarged pockets of fat, which in turn, improves the chances of cellulite to develop.
How to Get Rid of Cellulite
Pioneered by LPG Systems of France more than a decade ago,Endermologie® was the first method approved by the FDA to temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite. It has been proven safe and effective by countless clinical cellulite treatment trials.

The Endermologie® Cosmetic Procedure
Approaching a problem subdermally, Endermologie® cellulite treatment eliminates cellulite without the painful and unnecessary surgical and invasive methods of other procedures.
A uniquely designed motorized device with two adjustable rollers and controlled suction is used to gently fold and unfold the skin in the target areas symmetrically, and continuously. This action allows for smooth and regulated deep tissue mobilization, reducing the viscosity of the subcutaneous fat layer which in turn, facilitates blood flow and lymphatic drainage. The consumption of water then allows these toxins to drain from the body.
Endermologie® improves overall cellular function for smooth and resilient, dimple free skin. Because treatment relies on the body to eliminate cellulite through natural processes, more than one session is typically required. It is recommended that sessions are booked about twice a week. You will be asked to drink plenty of water before and in between scheduled treatments.
Who Wears Short, Shorts?
Thanks to Endermologie®, cellulite reducing treatments at the Toronto Cosmetic Clinic!
Pretty much most women “suffer” from cellulite- in fact 90% of women have cellulite on one or more areas of the body, no matter what their weight or shape is. Endermologie® is a natural treatment that can not only smooth out the skin and reduce that dimple appearance, but provides lymphatic drainage at the same time to rid the body of certain toxins!
In a 35 minute session, you can concentrate on your main areas of concern (for most of us, it the thighs or buttocks) for the majority of the treatment. It is a full body treatment, which entails other areas of your body will be treated so you can obtain the effects of lymphatic drainage. Endermologie® is a pain-free procedure, that consists of a constant suction between two motorized rollers, so you will feel a gentle suction/massage action. This helps to increase circulation and stimulate the subcutaneous and deep layers of fat and muscle. This in turn helps to release trapped fat with-in the underlying connective tissues, to smooth out the appearance of the skin.
At Toronto Cosmetic Clinic, it is recommended to have 10-20 sessions, about 1-2 times per week. It is recommended to keep up with drinking lots of water, incorporate proper nutrition along with regular exercise to ensure you obtain optimal results. There is no permanent solution to cellulite unfortunately, however keeping up with Endermologie® sessions every couple weeks is a great way to maintain the smooth, slimming results.
Summer short season is upon us! And we all know what that means…time to come in for Endermologie® sessions…cellulite be-gone!
3 Cellulite Myths
There is a ton of misinformation out there about cellulite, so we’d like to disprove 3 of the biggest myths related to “cottage cheese” and “orange peel” skin.
Myth #1: You can get rid of cellulite by exercising.
Sure, cellulite is essentially fat, which means you should be able to get rid of it by dieting and exercising, right?
Wrong. Cellulite isn’t just excess fat – it’s also caused by the unique way in which the fat is trapped underneath the skin. Its formation has been linked to hormones and genetics. Factors such as stress, your genes and poor skin elasticity can make you more prone to getting cellulite. However, since it is a kind of fat, dieting and exercise can help keep those unwanted dimples at bay, or at least keep them from becoming a major eyesore.
Myth #2: You can’t get rid of your cellulite.
Actually, yes you can – but you’ll need to find the treatment that works for you and be vigilant about it. There are several treatments available that reduce and eliminate the appearance of cellulite. But since each person is different, one treatment may not work for all. You’ll have to find the one that works for you, whether it be a cream, such as Refining Cellulite Body Lotion from Vivier, or something a little more “technologically advanced”, like Endermologie. Allow some time for the treatment to work, since it probably won’t achieve immediate results.
Myth #3: Drinking lots of water can get rid of cellulite.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could get rid of cellulite by just guzzling a ton of water everyday? Unfortunately, this is a myth and has been found to actually do the opposite: make the appearance of cellulite worse.
But note: One time that drinking water is recommended is when you undergo Endermologie. The procedure breaks up the trapped fat deposits, which must be carried away by natural body processes as waste. Water consumption facilitate the process, which is why in this instance, drinking lots is recommended (find out how much you should drink by talking to the medical aesthetician who performed your procedure).
