The Endermologie machine, developed in France over a decade ago to reduce scarring, has been found to have a measurable effect in fighting cellulite. It uses rollers and gentle suctioning to deeply massage affected areas, increasing the circulation by 200 percent (manual massage increases the circulation by 60 percent). Toxins and abnormal water buildup are expelled as connective fibers are stretched.
Expect to wear a body stocking as a technician runs the suctioning rollers -- like a human vacuum -- over your body, concentrating on affected areas. Sessions usually run a half hour; a series of treatments is usually required to see visible results. A single session can cost up to $125.

Member crazyaboutbooks says "Is anyone here familiar with Endermologie? It's a massage they give you with a machine. I'm on my eighth treatment and I'm really amazed at how great I look."
