Lipomassage Review - Does This Smoothing Treatment Work? Are price and lack of results deal breakers?
Give me just two minutes of your time and I’ll tell you whether or not Lipomassage is worth a try. We checked into the details, side effects and clinical research. We looked everywhere for reviews, found multiple and read them all. Then we narrowed the info down to give you the bottom line.
What is Lipomassage?
First off, Lipomassage is a non-invasive cellulite treatment that’s supposed to work in as few as six treatments, though 20 or more are suggested in some cases. It is advised to schedule two to three sessions per week with one day between and each lasts up to 45 minutes.
LPG Endermologie is behind Lipomassage. It looks like the company has been around since 1996. You have to visit clinics in the UK to receive treatment. It doesn’t look like it’s available in the United States. We like that the process is non-invasive and we did find some happy patients, but read on…
Price – “Way Too High for Some”
The Lipomassage price is the first thing that caught our attention. “One clinic lists the price as about $80 US per session. That’s a minimum investment of $480, but you’ll spend more like $1600,” says our Research Editor. There was also some confusion about how much is the right amount.
As one customer said, “I paid $500 for 20 sessions and saw NO difference whatsoever.”
Another user responded, “I agree that the price alone sounds sketchy. For 20 sessions, I would pay approx. $1,400.00 so $500 sounds too cheap.”
Results – “Not Much for Some”
We never like to say there’s a possibility a treatment won’t work, but that’s the case with Lipomassage, according to some patients.
“The machines don’t work well. I don’t believe in machines,” one said.
Another shared “The only thing it did was make my legs itch really bad after the sessions.”
However, customers also reported seeing some results.
“She may have had 10 sessions. I can say for a fact that it worked,” said a man about his wife.
One more offered, “The cellulite is less visible definitely, but I don’t believe it’s the action of rolling that has taken it away.”
Over the years, we’ve found a strong connection between a small issue, like confusing prices, and a cut in your chances of long-term success. If Lipomassage costs one thing here and another there, customers may just walk away.
The Science – “Validated?”
LPG claims there are more than 125 studies completed on Lipomassage. There is a long list of the publications, but you’ll find many have nothing to do with cellulite reduction. We did find a few, but there are some issues. Endermologie paid for some of the research and participant count wasn’t clinically significant in all cases – only nine people were used in one case. Here at DietSpotlight we need science to give us the green light, but it doesn’t this time, especially for the price.
The Bottom Line – Does Lipomassage Work?
Have we already scheduled our first treatment? Well, Lipomassage sounds like a good alternative to liposuction, but we have a few reservations. The price is not exactly set in stone and it’s awfully expensive anyway. There are reports that it just doesn’t work and it’s not available in the United States.
If you’re ready to get rid of those extra pounds, our suggestion is to try out a supplement that’s made with clinically tested ingredients in place of a treatment like Lipomassage. The price will certainly be less than $1600.
Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. You get four clinically tested ingredients that have been shown to help with metabolism and fat loss, so you reach your goal faster. We easily found tons of positive reviews from dieters who achieved amazing results and only a few reported any side effects at all.
Also, the people behind Leptigen are confident enough in the ingredients to offer customers a Special Trial Offer – nice!

What You Should Know
Lipomassage is a technology by Endermologie, which is a localized massage therapy to fight against fat, cellulite, and unwanted contours. The website claims that in just six treatments the patient's skin is reconditioned and cellulite is much less visible. This treatment is more geared toward women than men, perhaps as a marketing attempt. Cost information is not available on the website, and you must contact the office in Miami if you are interested. The company is based in France, and services in other country may be limited.
List of Ingredients
Lipomassage involves a new methodology called Roll'in Technology. This technology is divided into three different types of methods designed to address the various needs of patients. These three different technologies are: Roll'in, Roll'out, and Roll'Up. The technology has changed protocols over the years, and now involves the patient as she must contract and relax her muscles to "solicit" them during the massage session.
Roll'in is used for body slimming. The areas of excess fat are rolled between the two rollers of the massage device.
Roll'out is used for firming the skin. Areas of excessive, loose skin are smoothed outward with the rollers of the massage device.
Roll'Up is used for body contouring. The folds of skin are reshaped and designed in a manner more suitable to the patient with varying techniques and the speed of the massage rollers on the device.
- Non-invasive procedure.
- Addresses several different body areas and concerns.
- Can fat disappear by massaging it?
- No mention of health, just looking good.
- Only available in the United States in Miami, Florida.
As a practice, this seems intriguing because it is a pleasant message, but it does suggest that the body is just something to be molded and changed to our suiting, to look as good, or as beautiful as we wish. The idea that the body may be changed with something like massage, rather than by good health and balanced diet with exercise, is somewhat bothersome. For those who cannot use this methodology, a better option is a healthy balanced diet with a good exercise program and plenty of water hydration. If you need a boost, look for a proven weight loss supplement containing both a thermogenic ingredient to burn fat and boost metabolism, along with an appetite suppressant to help curb cravings.
