Although Smooth Shapes was originally FDA approved as a non-invasive treatment for cellulite, it is primarily used in our Denver, Aspen, and Vail clinics in combination with SmartLipo™, VASER® Lipo and CellulazeTM procedures. In our experience, we found that Smooth Shapes treatments drastically reduce the duration and degree of recovery with these types of procedures. With 3 or more treatments, the average improvements are listed below:
• The recovery time will be reduced by 50%.
• The degree of bruising and swelling is reduced by 50 to 75%
• The degree of discomfort post procedure is reduced by 30 to 50%
• The incidence of touch up procedures for areas of asymmetry is drastically reduced
• The incidence of unwanted complications (like seromas) is drastically reduced
• The appearance of cellulite is improved in the immediate post procedure time period
• The soothing nature of the massage treatment drastically increases patient satisfaction in first 2 weeks following the procedure
Our office was the first in the United States to integrate this technology for post liposuction treatments. Furthermore our Smooth Shapes treatment protocols are now utilized by many medical practices that specialize in in-office body contouring procedures. We highly recommend these treatments after any body contouring procedure to speed recovery.
