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.
"I had a procedure done over 13 years ago. I still feel and look great! He is sensitive professional and knows what he’s doing. Will go back and refer him to as many people as I know."- J.F. / Google / May 05, 2018
"Dr. Gray is such a talented surgeon and I would trust no one else but him. His results are beautiful with minimal scaring. From what I understand he is a Micro-Surgeon so his technique is unique. I hear a lot about people looking for surgeons who are "nice or talkative" I could care less about that; I'm driven by good results. Not only do I trust his beautiful work, but I feel safe as he has a proven track record for safety. He has a wonderful nurse Cherisse who will make you feel comfortable and cared for. I would not hesitate to recommend him. Message me with questions, I'm happy to answer more details regarding the work."- R.T. / Yelp / Feb 11, 2020
"I got breast augmentation 10 years ago and I have never had any problems with them I would highly recommend doctor Gray if you are considering any type of surgery. He is one of the best and hes a humble man."- D.H. / Yelp / Feb 11, 2020
"I had the most amazing experience with Dr.Gray! I had my surgery 4 years ago and when I first met him, he was super informative and I could tell he had an artistic eye. I scheduled my surgery days after my consult and the whole day was comfortable, I wasnt nervous at all because I knew i was in good hands. Healing was a breeze, I stopped my prescription pain medicine the day after surgery and I had no bruising at all. These days, I follow many surgeons online and ive seen many surgery clips and there is a difference in healing based on how gentle and experienced the surgeon is, and Dr. Gray's expertise shows in the healing process. I wanted a natural look, and he delivered. No one is able to tell Ive had work done :)His staff was extremely personable and accomodating towards me and they went above and beyond expectations.5 Stars in every category. My experience was perfect every step of the way."- N.D. / Google / Feb 04, 2020
