Body Renewal Tip

If Lipomassage is incorporated into your treatments (as an add-on), one can expect quicker results and 8 to 10 treatments are usually required for cellulite and resistant fat reduction instead of the traditional 20 treatments.

At Body Renewal we have recognized that before one even starts on any body shaping program it is important that one is close to their ideal weight or BMI (Body Mass Index) as possible. A visit with one of the medical doctors at Body Renewal will determine whether you are carrying excess weight. If patients are overweight, our Body Renewal Diet Medical weight loss program is recommended. One can expect a weight loss of 8 to 12 kilograms in the first month if the program is strictly adhered to. At Body Renewal, since we have incorporated the Body Renewal Diet program into our body shaping treatments, hundreds of patients have successfully lost an average of 6 to15 kgs over teh course of their Body Renewal Diet diet.

Most patients are looking for a solution for the treatment of dimpled, sagging skin and pockets of resistant fat. The majority of us will always be interested in shortcuts to a better body but not everybody is willing to consider the surgical options. Body Renewal brings you a revolutionary new non surgical treatment that can deliver dramatic results without surgery or injection in a short space of time; Lipomassage™.

To keep lumps and bumps at bay, Lipomassage™ by Endermologie is the latest generation of Endermologie® treatments dedicated to treat localized fat, cellulite and contours. The Lipomassage™ process intensively stimulates deep tissue which breaks down fat cells and decreases their life span. With major technological and protocol innovations, Lipomassage™ is more targeted for specific problem areas and uses mechanical rollers that give better results in half the time of traditional Endermologie®

. The process stimulates the deep tissue which breaks down fat cells and improves lymphatic drainage and long term collagen stimulation.

Make sure that the clinic you choose for Endermologie® has the newer Cellu M6 Keymodule that is capable of doing Lipomassage™ targeted treatments. At Body Renewal, we usually combine Lipomassage™ with other treatment such as:

  • Endermologie
  • Velashape
  • Accent
  • Tripollar
  • Cryo-lipo fat freezing
  • Carboxytherapy and
  • Liposiddolve /PC injections for enhanced and quicker results.

This is how it works:

  • The Roll-in action reactivates metabolically inactive adipose tissue and fat release is stimulated
  • The thick hardened tissue that entraps fat cells is softened allowing the resistant fat to be discharged and eliminated.
  • Fibroblasts are stimulated to produce collagen and elastin for lifting and toning skin while sculpting contours.

At Body Renewal, a great deal of emphasis is placed on the thorough analysis and assessment of the client's problem areas, so that the correct protocols can be chosen, programmes selected and treatments carried out. Each patient is assessed by a medical doctor and a customised package prescribed.

On The Body, Lipomassage™ treats resistant fat in the following areas:

  • Bra Bulges
  • Tummy Rolls
  • Love Handles
  • Buttocks
  • Saddle bags
  • Inner Thighs
  • Fatty Knees
  • Fatty Ankles
  • Buffalo Hump

Just about everyone is familiar with fat pockets that you cannot get rid of. No matter how much you exercise, eat healthily and maintain your body at a healthy weight, localized fatty pockets will continue to be problematic.

A possible explanation behind this is that some fat cells have a predominance of beta receptors and others have a dominance of alpha receptors.

Beta receptors are very receptive to the presence of adrenaline which is produced by exercise. Fat cell breakdown is triggered when adrenaline attaches to the beta receptors. Fatty areas with a predominance of beta receptors respond to exercise and a person on a regular exercise program will see noticeable results.

The opposite applies to fatty areas with a predominance of alpha receptors. When adrenaline attaches to alpha receptors, fat breakdown slows down and the fat tends to accumulate more. This explains why some people will experience problems in areas that just won't respond to consistent and regular exercise. These problem areas are typically around the hips, tummy and upper thighs, leading to love handles, saddle bags, tummy rolls.

Endermologie® has been around for a long time, but it originally used vacuum suction, which was less effective and more painful. This new version of targeted Endermologie®, known as Lipomassage™ uses motorized rollers that work at different speeds and directions, so its much more comfortable and gives better results in half the time. The most obvious innovation of Lipomassage™ is the Cellu M6 Keymodule. The Keymodules are the specific sets of rollers, designed to target specific problems, such as cellulite, loose skin (e.g. on tummies after pregnancies) and localized fat (e.g. 'lovehandles' and inner thigh bulges.)

Another innovation is in the rollers themselves. Each roller is fitted with a miniaturized, high-technology motor. This allows the rollers to move at independent speeds, to produce the correct skin fold to treat the problem. In addition, the rollers can turn in the same or in opposite directions. (Forwards, backwards, inwards and outwards).

This independence provides for variations in speed and rotational direction, allowing the therapist to obtain a large variety of skin folds in terms of their shape, depth and thickness.

At Body Renewal, we usually combine Lipomassage™ with other treatment such as:

  • Endermologie
  • Velashape
  • Accent
  • Tripollar
  • Cryo-lipo fat freezing
  • Carboxytherapy and
  • Liposiddolve /PC injections for enhanced and quicker results.

The treatments can be described as a deep tissue massage over a targeted area but active participation of the client is mandatory. During treatments the patient tenses the muscle in the area so that only the fat and skin are treated by the machine. This ensures superior results. After treatments clients are encouraged to eat sensibly, exercise moderately and drink two litres of water daily.

Lipomassage™ technology and the new protocols provide faster visible results: starting from 8 sessions unlike traditional Endermologie® that requires at least 15 to 20 treatments.

Similar to any results driven treatment, multiple treatments are required. Typically, 8 to 12 treatments are required depending on your age, body shape, cellulite type and cellulite grade. Clients have one treatment per week, which lasts about 35 to 45 minute per session. Maintaining a beautiful body isn't a sprint - it's a marathon. Rather than waiting until their problems are bothersome again, patients must appreciate that maintenance goes a long way. A maintenance treatment once a month means results continue to improve!

If Lipomassage™ is combined with a carboxytherapy procedure, the lymphatic circulation is dramatically improved and fewer treatments are necessary.

Yes, Lipomassage™ is a safe and effective treatment for improving resistant fat, provided it is performed by a trained and certified therapist.

Lipomassage™ safely treats all skin types without significant pain or down-time. It can erase centimeters of the areas treated and the appearance of cellulite is noticeably improved in 8 to 12 treatment sessions, one week apart.

Endermologie® is a non-invasive treatment that manipulates the connective tissue resulting in slimming, cellulite reduction and anti-aging. The benefits go far beyond aesthetics to encompass your total physiological wellbeing.

Endermologie® is an international phenomenon in the beauty, health and wellbeing arena. With a strong presence in over 95 countries with 110,000 treatments performed worldwide per day, Endermologie® sets the benchmark in the industry for slimming, anti-cellulite and anti-aging. Over the past 20 years LPG proven to be the world leader in the connective tissue treatments and has introduced numerous technological innovations to enhance wellbeing. The original device which performs Endermologie® was the first system in the world to be recognised by the FDA as a proven solution to cellulite and body contouring. Endermologie® has been the subject of many clinical trials with ongoing research and scientific studies continue to reveal outstanding results

Endermologie® is a scientific approach utilizing the principle of negative pressure massage. The Endermologie® treatment head is equipped with two rollers, both motorized, which roll and unroll a tissue fold, kneading and massaging the tissues. Between the rollers is a suction chamber, which applies a variable aspiration to this tissue fold, increasing the blood supply to the area. By manipulating the treatment head in various manoeuvres, the skin and the subcutaneous fat cell layer are mobilized and the blood circulation is restored.

Improved lymphatic drainage eliminates metabolic toxins from the tissues. The increase in oxygen and nutrients available triggers the body's normal process for fat elimination and the fat cells begin to shrink in size. The connective tissue walls are gently stretched, which encourages the fibrous tissue cells to produce better quality collagen and elastin, thus toning and firming the body.

As one ages, especially if there has been yo-yo dieting, the skin's elasticity declines dramatically and gravity constantly pulls on our bodies and collections of resistant fat and layers of cellulite located in the most inconvenient locations. This can ruin your best efforts at looking good and can dramatically affect how you feel about yourself and your appearance; especially when you head for the beach.

Now with the advent of Endermologie® ,virtually any patient in their twenties or above can be a candidate for a little tightening and firming and the younger the patient the better the result. Eight out of ten patients get noticeable improvement in cellulite after the eighth treatment, but best results are seen after 20 treatments. At Body Renewal, we usually combine Lipomassage with Endermologie, and/or other treatments for enhanced and quicker results. (8 to 10 treatments as opposed to the usual 15 to 20 treatments).

Savvy 20- , 30- and 40-year-olds have all the preventative tools available to them and will not allow their bodies to get to the stage that today's 50- and 60-year-olds have.

Body Renewal is excited to offer the next step in multi-modality therapy in treating cellulite. We call it the Bottom Line. Any treatment modality on its own can make a big difference, but in our eyes it's not sufficient. Cellulite has different forms and grades and thus success at combating cellulite needs a combination of treatments that include lymphatic drainage, reduction of fat cells, stretching of connective tissue and collagen stimulation.

At Body Renewal Endermologie is commonly performed with, the Lipomassage™, procedure for best results.

The initial 30 minutes consists of a Endermologie procedure and the treatment is ended with a more targeted Lipomassage™ procedure for enhanced results. Adding a TriPollar radiofrequency procedure to the protocol also ensures superior results.

At Body Renewal, with a combination of treatments, in 3 to 6 months we can take a good body and turn it into a Perfect body: slim, firm, smooth and sculpted

The treatments can be described as a deep tissue massage .After treatments clients are encouraged to eat sensibly, exercise moderately and drink two litres of water daily. Similar to any results driven treatment, multiple treatments are required.

If clients are overweight, our Body Renewal Medical Weight loss program is recommended. One can expect a weight loss of 8 to 12 kgs in the first month if the program is strictly adhered to.
