SmoothShapes® for Cellulite Reduction

The SmoothShapes® cellulite laser treats the underlying causes of cellulite through photomology, a cutting edge new technology. The SmoothShapes device has a vacuum that positions the skin for maximum penetration of the laser and light. Then, the photomology helps the laser to be preferentially absorbed by the lipids. This allows the fat to move out of the treated cells and into the lymphatic system, where it can be eliminated from the body.

Photomology repairs cellulite-enlarged cells by combining light and laser energy with mechanical manipulation through vacuum and massage to specifically target problem cellulite. This results in noticeably tighter, smoother looking skin.

How does SmoothShapes for cellulite reduction work?

The SmoothShapes cellulite laser has a convenient handheld device your doctor will use. It features a roller to glide over the treatment area, so you will experience a gentle, massage-like sensation. The light and laser energy cause a thermal effect in the cells that increases cell permeability. Once it has achieved migration of the fat molecules from the adipose cells to the interstitial fluid, SmoothShapes’ contoured rollers assist in transferring this evacuated fat and any additional fluids into the lymphatic system.

This treatment causes no pain or discomfort and actually works to repair damaged collagen in the affected area. As a result, it can increase circulation and provide a long-lasting outcome. SmoothShapes is a safe, noninvasive technique that requires no downtime, allowing those who undergo a treatment to return to work and resume their typical daily activities immediately following the procedure.

What areas of the body can be treated with SmoothShapes?

The SmoothShapes cellulite laser is effective for use on all areas of the body that are prone to the development of cellulite, including the thighs, buttocks and hips. It also offers your physician the option to choose tinier handpieces that may be used to reduce the appearance of cellulite in smaller, harder to reach areas of the body such as the calves, arms and neck.

You aren’t the only one bothered by cellulite and  other skin texture problems; 85% of women have cellulite.

Cellulite isn’t a fat problem. The appearance of cellulite can make people feel self-conscious. Noninvasive cellulite treatment can help with the appearance of cellulite, fat and areas of skin laxity. Treat those problem areas that cause the bumps, dimples and valleys to achieve a smoother and more youthful appearance.

What results can I expect?

You’ll quickly see some improvement with optimal results apparent over several treatments. However, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen.

Treatment plans can be adjusted to fit everyone’s lifestyle – speak to your provider regarding desired downtime, comfort, and results.*
