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.
