Cellulite is a common skin condition that many women in the Buffalo area are constantly worried about, but with the revolutionary SmoothShapes® cellulite reduction procedure at Cheryl's Hair Removal and Cellulite Reduction Center, a division of Buffalo Laser Spa, Inc., women no longer need to worry. Cellulite is a very common skin condition. so common in fact, over 90 percent of all post-pubescent women suffer from this skin condition to at least some degree. For years, it was believed by both scientists and researchers that the formation of pesky, unwanted cellulite was due mainly to excessive weight gain, obesity, lack of exercise and poor diet; however, this has proven to be untrue.
Cellulite is most often detected when skin of the thighs, hips and buttocks start to take on a lumpy, dimpled appearance which many refer to as simply the ‘orange peel' or ‘cottage cheese' look. The dimpled skin that represents cellulite is actually caused by engorged fat cells that become trapped in the network of fibrous septae that resides in the subcutaneous layers of skin. For a variety of reasons, the fibrous septae can stretch and engorge, trapping excess fat cells. Once trapped, reduced movement causes the septae to harden and push up against the outer layers of skin—leading to the lumpy, dimpled appearance of cellulite. As we know it today, vascular changes, hormones and inflammation—three bodily occurrences that are completely out of our control, most commonly cause cellulite.
Because cellulite is such a common problem among female adults, SmoothShapes® has developed a solution. Through a scientific approach that practitioners and patients can trust and believe in, this revolutionary laser cellulite treatment offered at Cheryl's Hair Removal and Cellulite Reduction Center not only treats existing cellulite, but treats engorged fat cells as well—making it more difficult for cellulite to return. The SmoothShapes® system effectively removes and treats cellulite through a proprietary technology called Photomology®. Photomology® improves the overall condition of engorged fat cell and fibrous septae through a unique mechanism of action which combines vacuum suction and contoured rollers with dynamic laser and light energy in order to specifically target problem cellulite areas. The results for SmoothShapes® patients: tighter, smoother looking skin.
The Photomology® technology at Cheryl's and Buffalo Laser Spa, Inc. works to preserve fat cells while stimulating the normal metabolic processes in order to flush out excess waste. This treatment uses specific laser and light wavelengths to target the engorged fat cells and brittle fibrous septae that create the bumps and lumps of cellulite. There are two specific light wavelengths that are used during the SmoothShapes® procedure, while one penetrates deep into the tissue and is absorbed by the lipids, causing fat liquefaction, the other modifies fat cells for easier removal of liquid fat. The light application in conjunction with contoured rollers and vacuum suction helps to move liquefied lipids into the lymphatic system for proper removal. The light energies, working hand in hand with the vacuum suction, help to modify and move cells for proper removal of liquefied fat.
During the SmoothShapes® treatment at Cheryl's Hair Removal and Cellulite Reduction Center, collagen within the skin is remodeled in order to restore fat cells for smoother, tighter skin. Simultaneously, metabolic processes are also stimulated which work to minimize the underlying causes of cellulite; vacuum suction and mechanical massage via the Photomology® technology represents a significant improvement in the way we treat unwanted cellulite. After a series of treatments, our patients feel smoother, firmer skin and can expect long lasting cellulite reduction results.
