Cellulite is a common skin condition known for its dimpled appearance caused by enlarged fat cells trapped in an inflexible network of fibrous septae located in the subcutaneous layers of skin. It affects 85-98% of post-pubertal women. For years it was thought that cellulite occurred primarily due to obesity, excessive weight gain, lack of exercise and poor diet, but in actuality, this is not the case. The formation of cellulite is due to several genetic and physical factors that include hormones, vascular changes and connective tissue changes.
Based on six years of scientific development, SmoothShapes® featuring Photomology® technology is designed to offer a new and innovative way to treat cellulite, safely and effectively, and achieve long lasting results. The SmoothShapes system effectively treats cellulite by improving the overall condition of enlarged fat cells and inflexible fibrous septae through a proprietary technology called Photomology®. Photomology restores enlarged cells through a unique mechanism of action which combines dynamic laser and light energy with contoured rollers and vacuum suction to specifically target problem cellulite. Treatment results: tighter, smoother looking skin.
What is the treatment like?
The treatment is comfortable and no preparation is needed. You can expect: Gentle warming of the skin, a feeling similar to a deep tissue massage and for the experience to be relaxing and pleasant one.
Are there any side effects?
Following the procedure, you can resume normal activity without pain or downtime and without any restrictions. Some things you may notice after treatment are that your skin may appear slightly pink which resolves itself anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 hours after treatment, and that your skin may feel slightly warm, which resolves itself within 30 minutes after treatment.
Are there any guarantees?
In all medicine and science there are never any absolute guarantees. We have had many successes, everyone has seen results. Some patient’s responses are just quicker, or greater than others.
