SmoothShapes XV, the newest offering for laser cellulite treatments, features unique Photomology® technology. Now with 50% more laser power, SmoothSpeedtm audible & visual treatment guidance and a portable, sleek console design, SmoothShapes XV is an ideal way to add non-invasive body shaping to an aesthetic practice. SmoothShapes XV will revolutionize how cellulite is treated and introduce exciting new protocols for pre and post liposuction care.
SmoothShapes XV’s proven, proprietary Photomology technology combines dynamic energy (laser and light) with mechanical manipulation (vacuum and massage) to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Photomology utilizes specific laser and light wavelengths to address the physical manifestations of cellulite: less flexible collagen and enlarged fat cells. Photomology minimizes the underlying causes of cellulite such as edema, impaired blood circulation.
SmoothShapes provides you with smoother, tighter skin in the treatment area. Not only will you look good but you’ll have the confidence to wear clothes you had avoided in the past. So break out your form fitting sweaters, your mini skirts and bathing suits and celebrate a new you with SmoothShapes! This is how SmoothShapes works to get you the body you have been wanting.
Cellulite appears as changes occur within the layer beneath the dermis called the hypodermal layer or subcutaneous fat layer. These fat cells become enlarged and take on irregular shapes. The once flexible collagen fiber columns can become rigid and brittle. Because of the stiffness of these columns they pull the skin in some areas while the enlarged fat cells push and create protrusions in other areas. The result is the dimpled surface known as cellulite.
Each cell membrane is like a fine mesh strainer. Light energy directly increases the permeability of the fat cell membrane. As the light penetrates, the mesh widens. While this light is facilitating change, another laser wavelength is being applied simultaneously.
These wavelengths target fat cells and the lipids within the fat cells are liquefied. With the help of vacuum massage and mechanical manipulation, liquefied fat is able to move out and be transported to the body’s lymphatic system.
The fat cells become smaller and regain their more uniform shape and there’s better circulation throughout the treatment area.
This combination of laser and light energy with mechanical manipulation (vacuum and massage) represents a significant improvement in the treatment of unwanted cellulite. On average, 2 treatments per week over 4 weeks will be sufficient to yield skin that is smoother and tighter with lasting results.
SmoothShapes® represents a significant improvement in the way cellulite is treated. After treatment, you will feel smoother and tighter skin in the treated area and can expect lasting results. The SmoothShapes system can treat all skin types including tanned skin.
The treatment is comfortable and no preparation is needed. You can expect the following:
1. Gentle warming of the skin.
2. A feeling similar to a deep tissue massage.
3. A relaxing and pleasant experience.
Following the procedure, you can resume normal activity without pain or downtime and without any restrictions. Some things you may notice after treatment are:
1. Skin may appear slightly pink which resolves itself anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 hours after treatment.
2. Skin may feel slightly warm, which resolves itself within 30 minutes after treatment.
The SmoothShapes treatment protocol consists of 2 treatments a week for four weeks for a total of eight treatments. Many patients begin to notice changes in their skin texture and firmness about half way through treatments. Click here for Articles and Abstracts.
