Endermologie is a unique, non-surgical, non-invasive way of reducing cellulite and reshaping the
body. It reduces cellulite and improves overall fitness by using a patented form of rollers, suction,
massage and vibration therapy. Since its introduction to the USA, Endermologie was the first to be
FDA approved for temporarily reducing the appearance of cellulite and inch loss. Its safety and
efficacy have been the subject of several clinical trials and research continues to reveal positive
results. Aesthetic Clinique was the first practice in Orlando to introduce Endermolgie in 1999. Larissa
Serrao RN, an Advanced Certified Endermologist, has been featured on Channel 6 News WKMG for
her expertise in the treatment of cellulite.
ENDERMOLOGIE IS THE #1 TREATMENT FOR CELLULITE IN THE WORLD!
What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is a common term used to describe superficial pockets of
trapped fat, which cause uneven dimpling or “orange peel” skin. It
appears in 90% of post-adolescent women and is rarely seen in men.
Common but not exclusive areas where cellulite is found, are the
thighs, buttocks, and the abdomen. Contrary to popular belief, cellulite
is not related to obesity, since it occurs in overweight, normal, and thin
How does Cellulite Develop?
“Edematous-fibrosclerotic panniculopathy” is a medical term used to
describe cellulite. In the past decade, there has been extensive
research to clarify the possible causes, and many authors agree on the
• Adipose cells (fat cells) swell due to fat storage
• Capillary walls become excessively permeable causing
localized accumulation of fluid
• Inadequate lymphatic drainage slows the removal of excess fluid
• Adipose cells cluster and are bound by collagen fibers, which further impedes blood flow
• Connective tissue strands stiffen, pulling down on their anchor points.
The changes in blood flow, lymphatic drainage, fat, and connective tissue result in cellulite - a bumpy
or dimpled appearance of the skin.
What Factors are Involved in Cellulite?
Special importance is placed on hormonal factors (estrogen, folliculine, etc.), since cellulite develops
mainly in women during periods of hormonal change, such as puberty, pregnancy, menopause,
premenstrual syndrome, and the initial months on birth control pills. Hormones are responsible for
regulating the changes in blood flow, lymphatic drainage, fat, and connective tissue, all of which play
a role in the formation of cellulite.
Lifestlye: Diet and Exercise
Cellulite forms as a result of complex physiological changes to the subcutaneous fat layer, despite
attempts to exercise regularly and follow a well-balanced diet. However, without a healthy lifestyle, the
overall appearance of existing cellulite can worsen over time due to weight gain, poor nutrition, and
inadequate water intake.
Aging results in a loss of thickness and tone of the connective tissue within the dermis and the
superficial fat layer. The outcome is a more visible and flabby cellulite.
What Can Treat Cellulite?
Most treatments for cellulite remain largely unsuccessful because they only target the appearance of
cellulite. It was finally understood that the dimpling on the surface of the skin was but a symptom of
the underlying cause and to banish the bumps would require a deeply acting treatment. This resulted
in the development of Endermologie, a proven treatment for over 20 years. Endermologie, subdermal
approach to treating cellulite, was pioneered by LPG Systems in France. Since its introduction to the
USA, Endermologie was the first to be FDA approved for temporarily reducing the appearance of
cellulite and a change in the contour of treated areas with inch loss. Its safety and efficacy have been
the subject of several clinical trials and on going research reveals positive results. Endermologie has
been given extensive coverage on TV networks and magazines. Larissa Serrao RN, an Advanced

What is Endermologie?
Endermologie is a unique, non-surgical, non-invasive way of reshaping the body. It reduces cellulite
and improves overall fitness by using a form of massage and vibration therapy. It is the #1
treatment of cellulite in the world!
How does the treatment work?
Our certified endemologist performs the treatment using an instrument with a motorized head and
specially designed rollers. This produces controlled suction which gently lifts the skin, energizing the
venous and lymphatic systems and thereby eliminating toxins. Fibroblasts are stimulated which
increase collagen and elastin production. The suction and vibration break down subcutaneous fat and
water which are drained away by the body’s lymphatic system. This requires an increase in your daily
intake of water.
How many treatments are required?
Usually, fourteen to twenty treatments are recommended. After desired results have been obtained,
maintenance sessions can be performed once a month to keep the cellulite from returning.
Is Endermologie safe?
Endermologie is very safe and has little to no complications. It is FDA approved for temporarily
reducing the appearance of cellulite and body contouring.
Are there any possible side effects?
Side effects may include some minor bruising.
Will there be any downtime?
There is no downtime with Endermologie.
What are the benefits of Endermologie over other treatments?
Endermologie is a pain-free method of removing cellulite. Other
procedures can cause painful burns or scars. With Endermologie,
there is no chance of skin pigmentation changes, scars, blisters or
infection which can occur with other types of treatments.
What are the results?
The results include a reduction in the appearance of cellulite, an
increase of blood and lymphatic flow, stimulation of collagen
production and a facilitation of fat metabolism.
How soon will results appear?
Temporary results can appear after the first treatment but are more commonly seen after multiple
treatments. Results will begin to fade without maintenance sessions.
How long does an Endermologie treatment last?
The treatment process lasts about thirty to forty-five minutes.
How does the treatment feel?
It is a sensation similar to a massage. If done properly, the procedure should not hurt because the
nurse adjusts the level of intensity to your personal comfort.
How long do the results last?
The results last from several months up to years depending on maintenance and lifestyle. The results
are long-lasting if the recommended number of treatments is completed. However, if only a few
sessions are completed, the results will fade in a few days.
