SmoothShapes Maintenance Treatments Enhance Results
SmoothShapes has been very successful at improving the appearance cellulite on the thighs, buttocks, but also has been shown to tighten the skin of the abdomen and back. For best results eight consecutive sessions should be performed, twice weekly, for four weeks. We offer our patients to do one monthly maintenance session for six moths after that, and then to repeat in one year another series of eight sessions as described above, combined with some additional maintenance sessions monthly as well. It is not an absolute requirement to do the series of treatments for two consecutive years, but we have seen very significant results following this protocol. We teach our patients that cellulite is genetically and hormonally dependent, and maintenance treatments are very important. SmoothShapes is one of the most popular treatments in our practice, and we use it by itself for cellulite, after CoolSculpting for further contouring and on the abdomen and buttock for enhanced skin tightening after treatment of stretch marks with Fraxel. I hope this information is helpful. Good luck, Dr. Bowes.
