Shu Cosmetic Surgery MedSpa is the first MedSpa in Minnesota to offer SmoothShapes cellulite and circumferential reduction treatment. It is a non-invasive, comfortable and relaxing treatment with no down time.
This new technology called Photomology, gently stimulates metabolic processes to minimize the underlying causes of cellulite and restore tissue to a healthier state so skin is smoother and tighter. Photomology uses specific laser and light waves to address the cellulite. A 915 NM laser penetrates into the tissue and is absorbed by lipids causing the fat to liquefy. A 650 NM light modifies the fat cell membranes allowing the liquefied fat to move out of the cell. The lightweight hand held roller glides over the treated area, creating a gentle massage like sensation. The vacuum component is used to position the skin for the most effective light and laser penetration. The rollers also assist in moving the liquefied fat into the lymphatic system so the body can dispose of it.
