The Endermologie machine, developed in France over a decade ago to reduce scarring, uses rollers and gentle suctioning to deeply massage affected areas, increasing the circulation by up to 200 percent. At the same time, toxins and abnormal water buildup are expelled as connective fibers are stretched. The incredible exfoliation in conjunction with the stretching of the fibers can be helpful with reducing the appearance of stretch marks. You can expect to wear a body stocking as a technician runs the suctioning rollers -- like a human vacuum -- over your body, concentrating on the affected areas. Each session lasts a half hour, but to see results, a series of treatments is recommended.
