Eleme Medical Launches SmoothShapes XV Anti-Cellulite and Laser Lipo Technique

Over 80 percent of women are fighting the war against cellulite, and medical equipment manufacturers continue to explore new ways to treat the skin tissues and produce visible changes that will help reduce – or eliminate – cellulite. Eleme Medical has launched a new SmoothShapes XV device that promises to deliver heat to the fat cells approximately three times faster than the original SmoothShapes system and other body contouring devices, and provide better results with fewer treatments.

The Smoothshapes XV Anti-Cellulite device was unveiled at the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery in Phoenix, Arizona this month. The device is made with Eleme’s proprietary Photomology® technology that helps treat cellulite by delivering both laser and light energy deep into the skin tissues, and using mechanical manipulation with a vacuum and massage treatment to reach further into the skin tissues. The non-invasive procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, and there is no anesthesia required.

Some plastic surgeons are using the SmoothShapes device as part of a laser liposuction treatment, because the procedure helps to firm, tighten and tone the skin tissues after body fat has been removed. According to Nancy Briefs, President and CEO of Eleme Medical, “Consumer demand for non-invasive body shaping continues to grow…in a recent survey of physicians this consumer demand was validated by the physicians who said that the two largest categories in which they planned to purchase new equipment and grow their business were cellulite and laser lipolysis”.

Physicians who integrate the SmoothShapes device with a liposuction procedure may be able to achieve better results, and also reduce post-operative bruising, swelling and pain.

The SmoothShapes system designed with Photomology technology has received FDA clearance to market, and is currently available at select medical spas and cosmetic surgery centers around the country.
