Thank you for your question.  We avoid pregnancy, patients with a sunburn or who have disorders of the skin.  It is safe on all skin types and feel akin to a massage.  It is not only very safe but also very pleasant.  You will require ongoing treatments for cellulite (a chronic condition).  There are many services that you can pair with this treatment which will amplify your results.  Ensue your consultation is with a qualified cosmetic physician.

We do not treat with SmoothShapes laser during pregnancy; otherwise, it is safe to use on all skin types to reduce cellulite.
