Grand Island, Nebraska (PRWEB) July 05, 2012
Surgery Group of Grand Island is now offering SmoothShapes®, a non-invasive cellulite reduction procedure.
“Cellulite is often unsightly and can be stressful, especially for women in the summer months,” said Dr. Luebbe. “Our new SmoothShapes technique has been shown to reduce visible cellulite and doesn’t require surgery. It’s not painful--it feels like a deep, relaxing massage.”
It is widely believed that cellulite is caused by an unhealthy lifestyle, but that is not the case. Factors can be both hormonal and genetic, and it is estimated that the condition occurs in 80-90% of women. SmoothShapes treats the underlying causes of cellulite with the patented Photomology® technology, which combines the energy of lasers, LED, and physical manipulation to promote healthy fat cells and strengthening fibers in the tissue.
SmoothShapes was FDA approved in 2005 to reduce the appearance of cellulite, and in a clinical study, 81% of patients treated showed significant improvement. An optimum treatment plan consists of eight 20-minute treatments, twice a week for four weeks; but each case is unique and may require a different plan.
