SmoothShapes For Cellulite Reductions

Cellulite is the dimpled appearance of the skin on thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen and sometimes breasts, and upper arms as well. It is more common in women than in men because of the difference in the distribution of fat, muscle and connective tissues on their skin. It is the result of unevenness of fatty tissues beneath the skin surface. When the skin is pinched — the dimpling appears for mild cases. More severe cases make the skin appear rumpled and bumpy with areas of peaks and valleys.

Heredity, skin thickness, gender, the amount and distribution of body fat, sedentary lifestyle, and age can all influence the development of cellulite and the extent to which it is present or visible.

Smoothshapes treatment can greatly reduce the appearance of cellulite and dimpling. Below are answers to some of the most common patient questions
