What is cellulite?

Cellulite is a group of fat deposits that build up on the buns and the thighs. People who are overweight are very likely to suffer from this problem. However, it is important to note that cellulite can develop on thin people. Genetics and hormonal fluctuations are the most common causes of cellulite. Lifestyle factors such as a poor diet and a lack of exercise can also cause cellulite.

How can cellulite be treated?

Today there is a procedure called Smooth Shaper that can removes cellulite. This procedure uses laser and light technology to treat the underlying causes of cellulite. Because Smooth Shaper treats the underlying cause of cellulite, it is more effective than other treatments.

How many treatments will a person need?

The number of treatments needed depends on the amount of cellulite that the person has. However, two treatments per week for a month is sufficient for most people.

Does Smooth Shaper have any side effects?

Smooth Shaper is a safe procedure that has minimal side effects. Patients who get this procedure may notice that their skin turn pink and stay warm for up to two hours after surgery. They may also notice that they urinate more frequently. That is why people are strongly encouraged to drink plenty of fluids after this procedure.

Why Should I choose Smooth Shaper over other procedures?

There are several reasons that Smooth Shaper should be chosen over other procedures. One of those reasons is that it is pain free. Most people who have had Smooth Shaper done have said that it is a pleasant experience. They said that it felt like a deep tissue massage. Smooth Shaper can also be used on all different types of skin. Additionally, Smooth Shaper is minimally invasive, so it is a lot safer than other procedures.
