A Look At Family Care Group's Cellulite and        Endermologie® Technology
What is cellulite?
Cellulite is a skin condition which affects more than 90% of women. Directly related to hormonal variations, it also tends to worsen with age. Resulting from microcirculation impairment, cellulite is a vicious circle involving fluid retention, enlargement of fat cells and an alteration of connective tissue.
Why does the skin look dimpled?
Clinically, the appearance of cellulite is the result of enlarged female hypodermic lobules, which give the skin the dimpled "orange peel" look. As a woman, you have two opposing forces which create this visible appearance of cellulite: Vertical connective tissue pulling

down on the skin Fluid retention and enlarged fat cells pushing up on the skin.
Do diet and exercise get rid of cellulite?

NO. Cellulite is a complex problem, it must be addressed from the subcutaneous layer, to act on fluid retention. Whereas both diet and exercise affect deep fat, they fail to act on the underlying cause of cellulite in the superficial tissue of your skin. Even women who exercise regularly and follow low fat diets may still have cellulite.

What is Endermologie?

Endermologie is a one-of-a-kind technique applied to the body by an LPG Certified Technician to fight cellulite with:    LPG's patented therapeutic massagers, specialized devices boasting unmatched technology.  Specific maneuvers which work various layers of  skin.

How does it work?
Endermologie is like performing gymnastics on your skin and underlying tissue; suction and motorized rollers massage your skin, thus exercising it.

LPG's gentle suction mobilizes your connective tissue and the rollers help to increase circulation, thus facilitating the exchange of fluids. Endermologie closes the gap between the two forces that originally created the dimpled appearance, thus fighting the appearance of cellulite and reducing circumperential body measurements.
