Can Endermologie Reduce the Appearance of Varicose Veins?

Free Consultation

Endermologie is a lipomassage treatment that makes use of a hand-held massage device that kneads and folds tissues. As a result, it increases the body’s blood supply and reduces cellulite, the dimpling and uneven appearance on the skin. In fact, Endermologie can improve various conditions on the skin, as well as beneath it. 

So can you have an Endermologie treatment for varicose vein conditions? Absolutely. If you have varicose veins, consult your vein specialist for Endermologie treatment as this procedure can relieve symptoms associated with venous conditions. You can see a visible difference right after the treatment, but expect multiple treatments to achieve your desired results. Other varicose vein procedures are Sclerotherapy and laser treatment.

Can You Do Endermologie When You Have Varicose Veins?

Endermologie is an effective non-invasive treatment for people suffering from varicose veins, a common health condition in which superficial veins swell and get twisted. However, it cannot completely eliminate varicose veins. It can only relieve symptoms of venous conditions. Pain, inflammation, and aching sensations can be reduced over the course of regular Endermologie treatments.

So how it works is that the doctor uses a hand-held mechanical device – consisting of vacuums and rollers – to massage the skin and break down resistant fat cells surrounding the varicose vein or spider vein. It also diminishes swelling which, in turn, evens out skin texture. Endermologie also engages with the lipolysis process – when stored energy is broken down and expended – which means you don’t have to fast for long periods of time.

Varicose veins can be caused by blood pooling and excessive water retention, usually in the legs. Fluid retention can be solved by Endermologie as it stimulates lymph drainage, blood circulation, and oxygenation. There are various risk factors associated with varicose veins including genetics, excess weight, prolonged sitting or standing, pregnancy, injury, and trauma.

Longevity of Treatment Results

Endermologie sessions usually last for about 15 to 45 minutes. You should be able to see a slight difference soon after your treatment but even more noticeable effects in 2 to 3 weeks. Take note that it takes until the 10th session to see optimal results. 

As to how long this would take would, of course, depend on the frequency of your sessions. Results vary from patient to patient. We recommend monthly maintenance treatments to maximize the longevity of your results.

Benefits of Endermologie

1) Minimal Side Effects

Since Endermologie is a completely natural treatment, patients do not usually experience any side effects. The most common one, however, is mild bruising brought about by the suction of the device. This should subside within a few days. Endermologie is also a non-surgical procedure which means that it is relatively painless compared to plastic surgery. Some patients even describe the procedure as comfortable and relaxing.

2) Instant Results

Whether you’re having Endermologie for cosmetic purposes or to treat your varicose veins, you should see some of its effects as soon as you come out of the doctor’s office. Endermologie is also a common procedure for those with cellulite, or “orange peel skin”, the formation of dimples and lumps in the skin. The processes involved in this procedure tones connective tissues, breaks down fat deposits, and thus diminishes cellulite.

3) Better Blood Circulation

Patients often feel more energized after the procedure since Endermologie stimulates the release of endorphins. The folding and rolling of the skin, brought about by the massaging device, significantly increases blood flow and oxygen flow to the cells.

4) Improved Lymphatic Drainage

The lymphatic system – also known as one of our natural detox pathways – is an often overlooked body system that is crucial for our health. Congested lymphatic nodes can cause toxins and waste to accumulate in our bodies, resulting in feelings of fatigue and exhaustion. An Endermologie treatment improves lymphatic drainage, making the process of cleansing easier on the body.

5) Less Stress

Endermologie is essentially a deep muscle massage. If ever you’re experiencing anxiety or would like to take a break from all of life’s frustrations, Endermologie can make you feel better. It treats sore joints and muscles, and it can make you feel at ease. Afterwards, you will also feel a boost in confidence coupled with a dozen health benefits.

How to Prepare for Endermologie

Before anything else, make sure that you are a suitable candidate for an Endermologie treatment. This medical procedure is for those generally in good health and want solutions for the following: varicose veins, cellulite reduction, body contouring, and face rejuvenation, among others. Endermologie is not recommended for pregnant women and patients with a history of cancer or thrombophlebitis.

When preparing for an Endermologie treatment, the golden rule is to stay hydrated: Drink lots of water ahead of time to flush away the toxins and to boost your body’s metabolism. Ask your doctor if it’s okay to temporarily stop taking blood thinning medications and supplements, should you be taking any. Also, expect that the doctor will ask you to change into a special suit during treatment.

Post-Treatment Care

Most Endermologie patients do not experience any downtime, although mild bruising – which resolves itself – may occur. You can resume your normal activities or head straight back to the office after the appointment, but don’t forget to stay well hydrated. As much as possible, drink 2 to 3 liters of water every day to assist the draining of your lymphatic system. Your doctor might also fit you for compression stockings to maximize the longevity of your results.

If you want to see the maximum potential of Endermologie, show up to your follow-up treatment sessions. Schedule a maintenance treatment at least once a month. If you don’t, you might end up back in square one. Keep in mind that your results can still be affected by other factors such as significant weight or loss, skincare routine, pregnancy, or childbirth.
