Cellulite Treatment - SmoothShapes, a Cellulite Reduction Procedure
A new cellulite treatment, SmoothShapes became available in the spring of 2008.
SmoothShapes is a non-invasive, painless treatment that uses a combination of dynamic
energy and mechanical manipulation to stimulate collagen regeneration and improve the appearance of cellulite.
"After evaluating the technology and clinical results, SmoothShapes appears to be leaps ahead of
other cellulite technology," said Patricia Wexler, MD, a New York City dermatologist offering
SmoothShapes cellulite treatment. "Patients of every age are concerned about this problem, but until
recently we've seen treatments that require numerous office visits that can cause both pain and bruising."
SmoothShapes works with a proprietary technology called
Photomology™, a combination of laser and light energy, contoured roller and vacuum.
The treatment uses dynamic laser and light energy to liquefy fat and improve skin texture.
Collagen is regenerated and circulation is improved. The contoured rollers and
vacuum massage assist in moving the liquefied fat out through the lymphatic system with a soothing massage that
smoothes the appearance of skin. Results from the treatments provide longer-lasting cellulite improvement that women can see.
Note: SmoothShapes providers do not seem to quantify 'longer-lasting'. Potential patients should consult a trusted
medical advisor to ensure their expectations are reasonable.
"SmoothShapes is going to change the lives of many who were once embarrassed to have certain
body parts on display," commented Cheryl Karcher, MD, a New York City dermatologist and
recognized expert in aesthetic medicine. "Unlike other systems designed to treat cellulite,
SmoothShapes has significantly improved the appearance of cellulite with longer lasting results."
