Post Liposuction Treatment with Northern Virginia’s Best Cellulite Specialist

Improving your skin after liposuction with Endermologie


In addition to removing cellulite, Endermologie is a skincare treatment that is highly recommended by physicians after someone receives liposuction.

How can Endermologie help me post-lipo?

Endermologie is gentle enough to try after receiving liposuction.  The benefits of Endermologie include:

  1.  It will speed up your liposuction recovery time
  2. It will remove lumps and bumps
  3. It minimizes bruising

It is very important that you work with someone with an excessive amount of experience.  Cellulite Solutions owner, Marie, was one of the first to introduce Endermologie to Northern VA and obtained both Level I and Level II certifications to include facial techniques and liposuction protocols.

What is Endermologie?

Endermologie penetrates to the deeper tissue of the skin, called the subcutaneous layer.  It the treatment lasts for approximately 45 minutes.  The rolling motion of the Endermologie treatment manipulates the superficial fascia level of the skin and enhances the skin’s firmness and appearance.  By increasing the blood circulation in the subcutaneous layer, fluids and fat that cause the dimpling appearance are mobilized.  The motorized rollers move in unique directions to manipulate and draw the skin into numerous folds.

Preparing for your Endermologie treatment

It’s not difficult to prepare for your Endermologie treatment.  Before the treatment:

  • Shave
  • Do not use lotion
  • Do not have any other laser treatments performed
  • No hot tubs

Cellulite Solutions Dispels The Myths And The Truths About Cellulite? Part One


The Ugly Truth About Cellulite… But There Is Hope!


We have heard it all, the special and expensive remedies for removing cellulite. So, Cellulite Solution is sharing in this two part series the fact and fiction of Cellulite; the good, the bad and the ugly.


Skin-firming creams can cure cellulite

Myth. Sorry, no magic bullets.

Despite what you might read on their labels, no topical creams—prescription or over-the-counter—have been shown to permanently reduce the appearance of cellulite. Studies have found, however, that products containing retinoids (labeled as retinol over-the-counter) may provide some temporary effects by creating a thicker skin cover that can help camouflage.  There is limited evidence that creams or scrubs with stimulant ingredients, like caffeine , ginger and even green or black tea, may also help by improving circulation and breaking down fat-cell stores, but they are less proven.

However Velashape lll is proven by the FDA to diminish the appearance of cellulite and tighten the skin.  That’s a fact!


Liposuction will make your legs (or arms, or tummy) look better

Myth, That is why Velashape lll is a great companion procedure for Liposuction, including creating tighter skin.

If cellulite is your problem, liposuction should not be your solution. In fact, the cosmetic procedure could even make fat distribution more uneven, making its outward appearance even worse.  Another vacuum-like (but non-surgical) procedure, however, known as Endermologie,has been shown to help: During Endermologie, a technician runs a suctioning device surrounded by rollers over a patient’s skin, pulling and squeezing trouble spots for about 30 minutes. Results are visible after about 10 visits (two per week),which can cost between $80 and $150 each.


Cellulite is caused by toxins in your body

Myth, Toxins, smoxins!

You may find or have cellulite products that claim to remove impurities and toxins from the body, but truth is there are no toxins causing your cellulite.  Rather, cellulite occurs when underlying fat deposits begin to push through layers of collagen fibers, or connective tissue, under the skin (often in the buttocks and thigh areas, but also on arms, stomachs, and other areas as well). Connective tissue can be weakened by hormones, lack of exercise and muscle tone, excess fat, and poor circulation, but the condition is not caused by “toxins.”


Women get more cellulite than men

Fact, Sorry, it’s true.

Women tend to carry more fat around their hips and thighs. We also have less supportive connective tissue to keep it all in place. “If you think of a scaffolding outside a building that has those X crosses on them, that is sort of what men’s fat chambers have,” It is estimated, however, that about 10% of men suffer from cellulite, as well.


Cellulite gets worse with age

Fact, Getting older not better?

Hormones also seem to play a role in the appearance of cellulite: as we get older our bodies produce less estrogen—a hormone that helps keep blood vessels flowing smoothly. Less estrogen can mean poorer circulation, which can also mean a decrease in new collagen production and the breakdown of older connective tissue.


Cellulite may be in your genes

Fact, A gift from your mother.

It’s true that cellulite runs in families; if your mother and grandmother had cellulite, you have a better chance of also developing it. But, consider that most women will develop cellulite in their lifetimes. If you’re not one of the lucky ones with smooth-skinned relatives, take heart: Genetics is only one small part of the cellulite puzzle; factors like diet, exercise, and maintaining a healthy weight also play a role.


Cellulite only happens to out-of-shape people

Myth, Skinny people beware!

Being overweight does make the appearance of cellulite more noticeable; the more fat you have underneath your skin, the more it’s likely to put stress on your connective tissue and bulge out of its weak spots. But cellulite also happens to women of all shapes and sizes. Even Victoria’s Secret models suffer from it sometimes. They’re very lean, they work out and eat well, they do everything right but they still have cellulite.
