NEW YORK, April 24 /PRNewswire/ -- An estimated 85 percent of women get cellulite, whether they are thin or not, and it can't be improved by diet or exercise. As warm weather arrives, women must choose fight or flight when it comes to cellulite. Women in shorts can now be less embarrassed by their cellulite with SmoothShapes, the new 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, the first New York City dermatologist to offer the SmoothShapes system. "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(TM) which is a combination of laser and light energy, contoured roller and vacuum. The treatment uses dynamic laser and light energy to liquefy fat in adipose cells and improve skin texture. Collagen is regenerated, circulation is improved and metabolic processes are restored. 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.
"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 nationally recognized expert in aesthetic medicine. "Unlike other systems designed to treat cellulite, SmoothShapes has significantly improved the appearance of cellulite with longer lasting results."
SmoothShapes and Dr. Karcher were featured on The View's "Beauty and the Beach" segment on April 18, 2008.
From April 27 through 29, SmoothShapes will be demonstrated at the Javits Center for the International Esthetics, Cosmetics & Spa Conference in New York. The SmoothShapes medical device is being sold to physicians in the United States.
