How Do I Get Rid of Cellulite on My Thighs and Butt?

SmoothShapes® in St. Augustine, FLAs we enter the summer months, we start to feel the pressure to have the perfect bikini body. But, no matter how much work we put in at the gym, we can’t quite get rid of the dimples on our thighs and butt. If you’re suffering from cellulite riddling your lower body, you’re not alone. As many as 85 percent of women have reported struggling with cellulite on their butt and thighs. Thanks to Dr. Vu and SmoothShapes® technology, you won’t have to worry about your unwanted dimples anymore.

What Causes Cellulite?

Before we can talk about how we banish you unsightly cellulite, we need to go over what it is and how it’s caused. Cellulite refers to the dimples in the skin primarily found on the butt and thighs. This skin dimpling is caused by tight connective tissue bands woven through your fat that cause your skin to pucker at the surface. These puckers caused by connective bands that lie under the skin is why home remedies like topical creams and massagers don’t work the way you want them to. SmoothShapes® is one of the only treatments on the market that targets cellulite at its source.

What is SmoothShapes®?

SmoothShapes® is a minimally invasive non-surgical cosmetic treatment that utilizes a combination of light therapy and massaging to target cellulite at its source. This treatment, unlike its cellulite busting competitors, does not require the use of anesthesia, cutting or downtime. Simply come in for your 20- to 30-minute treatment and start seeing benefits in as little as four weeks following your first session. Your results will be long-lasting, so you won’t have to worry about hiding your bikini body any longer.

How Does SmoothShapes® Work?

The SmoothShapes® treatment starts with a thorough consultation with Dr. Vu. During this consultation, Dr. Vu will assess your cellulite, listen to your concerns and develop a fully personalized treatment plan for you based on your ultimate aesthetic goals. During your SmoothShapes® procedure, the SmoothShapes® device delivers two different wavelengths of light while massaging your targeted areas. The light energy works to penetrate through the fat cells, which will later be naturally eliminated from the body. The massaging component also utilizes a gentle vacuum to gently pull on the surface of the skin, helping to release the dimples.

Do SmoothShapes® Results Last?

Yes! We like to refer to your SmoothShapes® treatment as a transformational process in which you’ll be able to see your results take place over a period of time. This is because a major part of your SmoothShapes® treatment results is powered by lipolysis or the natural elimination of fat cells in the treated area. It may take about four weeks or so for the lipolysis take effect and for you to see the results of your SmoothShapes® treatment. Your results will continue to improve over the following months, with ultimate results visible after about six months. These results will last for about a year but will require regular maintenance treatments to retain your desired look.
