Eleme Medical has launched new anti-cellulite and laser lipolysis adjunct SmoothShapes XV at the American Society for Lasers Medicine and Surgery in Phoenix, Arizona and will debut the system to plastic surgeons at the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
Eleme Medical said that based on the company’s proprietary Photomology technology, which treats cellulite by combining dynamic laser and light energy with mechanical manipulation of vacuum and massage, the second generation aesthetic device SmoothShapes XV delivers high results as mentioned.
SmoothShapes XV has also been enhanced to assure clinical consistency among treatment providers, offering a single treatment setting, audible treatment guidance and an interactive training screen to answer questions and provide basic clinical training.
Nancy Briefs, president and CEO of Eleme Medical, said: “The device is co-marketed and sold by both Eleme Medical and Osyris Medical, a subsidiary of Osyris Medical, Lille, France. Consumer demand for non-invasive body shaping continues to grow. In a recent survey of physicians the consumer demand was validated by the physicians who said that the two largest categories in which they planned to purchase new equipment and grow their business were cellulite and laser lipolysis.”
Kenneth Beer, a board certified dermatologist and dermatopathologist with practices in West Palm Beach and Jupiter, Florida, said: “The original SmoothShapes has proven itself as the first medical approach to treating cellulite that delivers long lasting visible changes in creating smoother and tighter looking skin.
“The new system increases heat deposition in the fat cell three times faster while maintaining higher temperatures at the treatment site so I’m looking forward to the potential for even better results with fewer treatments.”
Miles Graivier, MD, board certified plastic surgeon from Atlanta developed some of the early protocols for combination body shaping, said: “We can now improve our overall body shaping results while decreasing the patient’s post treatment bruising, swelling and pain management. We believe the combined therapies are allowing us to deliver a new level of body shaping results to our patients.”
