What You Should Know
Lipomassage by Endermologie is a mechanical treatment for stubborn cellulite. The machine consists of a roller and suction. The roller is meant to give the fat cells a workout according to the official website. The suction brings blood flow to the area, stimulating the fat release process.
The Endermologie website provides some information but does not include pricing, which suggests that this equipment is meant for clinic or spa use only. We were also not able to locate a manufacturer’s money-back guarantee. This type of guarantee is something we always like to see as it shows that the company believes in its product enough to give customers their money back if it doesn’t work for them. The Endermologie website refers to a researcher who developed the Lipomassage products but no identifying information is provided. Also, a supposedly-famous trainer gives a testimonial to the product but there are not customer testimonials available. There is also no indication of clinical trials supporting the effectiveness of the Lipomassage treatments.
The Lipomassage equipment consists of several different machines for different areas of the body.
There is very little information provided on the Endermologie website. There are no instructions for use of the machines or any guidelines as to who may or may not be a good candidate for the procedures. The contact information provided is to the headquarters in France and there is no indication as to where a consumer might be able to either purchase the equipment or schedule a treatment.
What concerns us most about the Endomologie treatments is that no information is provided regarding the science behind the treatments. A clinical study is referenced but the site provides no details of the size or extent of the study or its conclusions.
- Appears to break down fat cells without liposuction.
- Requires a minimum of six treatments.
- Can be expensive compared to alternative treatments.
- No manufacturer’s money-back guarantee.
- May be administered only through a spa or clinic.
The Endomologie Lipomassage will appeal to those who wish to break down cellulite without going through the expense and pain of surgical procedures like liposuction. However, there simply is not enough information available to support the procedures. One would expect that if it did work as advertised, there would be significantly more celebrity endorsements of the machines. The lack of a money-back guarantee may indicate that the company doesn’t believe in the products enough to trust that customers will be happy. There are products on the market that are clinically-proven to break down fat tissue manufactured by companies that stand behind their products. We recommend researching further before settling on these treatments.
