SmoothShapes is a noninvasive procedure offered by San Francisco, CA board-certified cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Leonard Gray. The treatment helps eliminate cellulite, and assists in achieving visible improvement in body shape and skin tone. The treatment utilizes suction and low-level laser energy to massage the tissue, helping move fluid through the lymphatic system, and smooth the appearance of dimples in the skin. It is the perfect treatment for post-op liposuction patients, as well as anyone looking to smooth the thighs, abdomen, or buttocks. The treatment plan consists of 8 sessions, twice a week, for four weeks for beautiful, flawless results.
Through the use of photomology, SmoothShapes uses a combination of laser and light wavelengths to specifically target cellulite. The treatment area will be properly prepped. The 650 NM wavelength will penetrate the fat cell membrane and make it permeable and more accommodating to be effectively removed. Then, the 915 NM wavelength will penetrate deep into the tissue to elevate the temperature, which will liquefy the fat to move it out of the fat cell. Rollers will massage the area and will be combined with suction to move the fat into the lymphatic system to allow the fat to be eliminated from the body. The entire procedure takes around 20 minutes.
After the procedure, a patient will experience no downtime. There might be a slight soreness that should subside within a few hours. No pain medications should be needed. Patients might notice a slight improvement in the treatment area immediately, but full results should be achieved after 8 sessions. Improved skin should be tighter and smoother as a result.
