I’m confused. What cellulite massage machine is the best? What results can I expect from using it?

If you have these or similar questions, you are not alone. About 90 percent of women have cellulite and  many of them want the answer to these questions.

Anti-cellulite massage machines in combination with creams are the most time- and cost-efficient way to reduce “cottage cheese skin”.

However, not all cellulite massages work. There are many reasons for this, but the most important ones are: a person who provides the treatment lacks knowledge and skill, massage is not vigorous enough and does not target the “cellulite tissues”.

If a massage is not strong enough, it will have little if any effect on cellulite. Another important thing to keep in mind is that some spa therapists are using massages specific to the muscles to reduce cellulite. This is not going to work.

So it’s not surprise that majority of women do not consider massage as a valid cellulite reduction method.  This is the main reason why they choose machines instead. But what equipment is out there that you should focus your attention on?

In general, all massagers can be divided into two categories: professional ones and those that can be used at home.

The most popular professional massage treatment is Endermologie. It was developed in France and is approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration for the reduction of cellulite. This electrically powered machine suctions, pulls and squeezes the layer of skin where cellulite is located.

Here are the key things you should know about Endermologie:

- Non-invasive.
- No chemicals used.
- Fells like a deep massage; very soothing.
- Minimum of 15 treatments is recommended.
- Treatment usually lasts about 45 minutes.
- It is performed two to three times a week.
- You need to drink two to three liters of water every day.
- Some people may have side effects such as light headedness, head aches or nausea.
- The results last for 18 months.
- Very expensive. It can cost up to $1500.
- It is not fat loss treatment.

Critics say that Endermologie only causes swelling so that the cellulite is less visible, but it remains in place. There are both positive and negative customer reviews. While some report very good results, others are very disappointed. A number of women stopped the treatment because they were concerned with the condition of their skin. One woman reported that when she bend over, her skin sags and looks like it is 80 years old.

An extremely popular cellulite massage machine is the Verseo RollerCell System. It is designed for home use and like Endermologie, it also uses rollers that massage the skin. This portable device uses the combination of rollers, heat, vibration and air suction to reduce the appearance of cellulite. You can read more about it here.

There is one crucial thing you must always keep in mind. All cellulite massage machines can only provide a temporary solution, but the effects are usually noticeable. It is important to note that regular use of these massagers must be followed up with diet and exercise to achieve the best results.
