For years, women have been aware that endermologie® treatments temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite and fine lines and wrinkles. While men rarely, if ever, develop cellulite, a growing number are taking advantage of the many benefits a program of endermologie treatments provide for them, as well.
Promotes Healthy Skin
As men age, the male body is less able to produce the collagen and elastin that keeps the skin supple. Reduced levels of these important compounds trigger the development of wrinkles and saggy skin, which can cause men to look older than they are. endermologie® treatments encourage increased production of elastin and collagen in the treated areas.*
The genetic composition of the connective tissue is different, resulting in thicker epidermis and dermis tissue layers. Men’s skin often responds to treatments faster than women due to that difference.
Relieves Muscle Pain
As with all endermologie treatments featuring the unique process called Mecano-Stimulation™, men of all ages enjoy relief from minor aches, pains, muscle spasms and soreness. Additionally, the patented treatment heads on the Cellu M6® Integral 2 or the Cellu M6® Endermolab 2 create a gently massaging action that reaches deep into sore muscles, encouraging them to relax. endermologie® treatments also improve blood flow to treated areas and help boost lymphatic drainage throughout the body.
Face endermologie treatments can target specific sites of concern and temporarily improve the appearance of under-eye bags, jowls and loose skin beneath the chin and on the neck, in addition to fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and eyes. Face treatments also stimulate the cells responsible for natural collagen and elastin production*, bringing a refreshed glow to the skin that revives a dull, tired complexion.
Reduces the Appearance of Gynecomastia
This condition causes fatty deposits to swell the breast tissue in males. It can affect newborns, boys going through puberty and older men due to changes in hormone levels. As men age, several medications, especially those for heart problems and anxiety and the natural drop in testosterone production can also cause gynecomastia. Diseases of the kidneys and thyroid can also trigger the condition.
No matter the cause, gynecomastia can lead to low self esteem and poor body image in both young and older men. endermologie® treatments can relieve some of the associated discomfort, temporarily reduce the appearance of the swollen tissue and boost the lipolysis process (the breakdown of fats).**
A program of natural, non-invasive endermologie treatments is an excellent addition to any man’s normal fitness and diet regimen – a fact being noticed by a growing number of men interested in maintaining their appearance.
