For the last 31 years, LPG has been developing medical devices dedicated to body-contouring, cellulite and rejuvenation treatments. The French beauty brand is the world leader in cellular stimulation and inventor of the Endermologie Treatments that are offered in over 110 countries. In the GCC, LPG has partnered with Med Way LLC for the distribution of its products in the UAE, Bahrain and Oman.
“LPG is a non-invasive, 100% natural anti-aging and body slimming solution. LPG Endermologie includes Face Endermologie and Body Endermologie Treatments. These can be used for young ladies that don’t need fillers, injections or buttocks yet. It is also practical for those who are over 40 years old and don’t want to go through other treatments and prefer to keep their expressions and enjoy their natural beauty as they grow older,” says Claude Gerin, Export Area Manager, LPG.
The treatment is also ideal for someone planning to get a cosmetic surgery. This non-surgical lifting and slimming technology prepares the skin ahead of the injection and guarantees better results. “The idea is to put LPG in those more invasive techniques to optimize the final results,” Claude explains.
Endermologie exfoliates the skin and oxygenates the tissues while pushing microcirculation to even out the complexion. The technique reactivates fibroblast activity to re-boost the natural synthesis of collagen, elastin and endogenous hyaluronic acid. Moreover, as it improves homeostasis and skin trophicity, this technique prepares and maintains the results of all procedures to optimize the global aesthetic outcome. Thus, transforming the skin making it more supple, youthful, firm and radiant.
“If the skin is dry and lacks micro circulation, it will not be in a great condition on the day of the injection. Thus, two weeks before the injection, the client can consult their dermatologist and get two LPG sessions per week to prepare the skin and improve blood circulation. This will lead to a supple skin and will make the process easier for the dermatologist on the due date. It is also advisable for customers to repeat the treatment two weeks after the injection in order to maintain good results.”
Claude declares that in Europe, women over the age of 40 know that they are going to have wrinkles and that they can fight them. “The only thing that they want – and it’s a big need in Europe – is to have a nice complexion.”
Anyone can use LPG treatments, even a young lady who would like to look at her best for a certain occasion can go for one session. Treatments’ duration vary depending on the area of the face or the body, including the neck and the hands.
LPG is a lifestyle that one needs to combine with a healthy diet. The price of the sessions depends on the duration of the treatment and the salons but it is usually around 500 AED.
“During the treatment, we simulate the cells to produce collagen and elastin. The results can be seen from day one; you feel that you have been lifted, but then it is the lifestyle. It’s like fitness for the skin and you need to maintain the results. Therefore, after having two sessions per week for two months – for example – a lady has to come back at least once a month. Many ladies don’t stop the treatment and keep on having it on a regular basis,” she adds.
Claude’s favorite treatments are the eye contour as well as the face treatment, which includes the neck and the hands. She advises women to teach their daughters from a young age about the importance of taking care of their skin. “They have to clean their face twice a day with a nice soap or gel, then rinse it with water and apply rose water or a toner. Moreover, from the age of 20, they need to start doing regular facials and apply creams. But then again cosmetics are not the only solution, we all know that effects are limited so this is why LPG is a good solution because it will help them look younger.”
She concludes, “Ladies need to be happy. Many women today take care of themselves and look good, but if they are not happy they will look fake. Being happy is enjoying the moment and enjoying your family, your good job, a good coffee or meal. It’s a question of balance. I think nowadays we are missing out on the point and we are very strict to ourselves; we are putting our own boundaries, and many times becoming our own enemies.”
