The new cellulite treatment, SmoothShapes, uses Photomology technology, which combines laser and light energy with vacuum and contoured rollers to drastically improve the appearance of areas affected by cellulite. SmoothShapes is a non-invasive treatment that attacks the lipids in the fat cells with laser and light energy which is used to break down and liquefy the cells. Once the lipids are broken down, the vacuum and contoured rollers work together to remove the cells from the body through the lymphatic system.
SmoothShapes is effective on areas including abdomen, thighs, hips and buttocks, as well as smaller areas such as the knees. Patients will be asked to remove all lotions and oils prior to treatment. SmoothShapes is performed through the use of a handheld device that applies the laser and light energy and mechanical manipulation. Following the first treatment, some patients may feel as though they have just performed an intense workout, but generally it is like receiving a deep tissue massage.
Most patients will need a course of eight treatments over a period of four weeks, with each session lasting about 30 to 50 minutes. An initial consultation with your SmoothShapes specialist will allow you to decide the best course of treatment combined with up consultations will ensure your optimal results.
