May, 8, 2013, Dallas, TX- The cosmetic surgery industry has developed a number of procedures, tools and techniques that help people be more beautiful versions of themselves. Fat can be eliminated with liposuction; wrinkles can be minimized through laser resurfacing or Botox injections. However the one thing plastic surgeons have struggled with for years is how to get rid of cellulite. Skintastic of Dallas has a revolutionary technique that can smooth the skin minimize the appearance of cellulite.


We all know what cellulite looks like, it’s that dimpled skin that resembles cottage cheese usually centralized around the buttocks, thighs and waistline. It’s natural, and almost exclusively affects women, but to most people cellulite is unattractive and diminishes an otherwise fantastic physique. Even very thin women are plagued with cellulite.

Women often wonder why cellulite is so difficult to reduce or erase. Exercise, diet, and creams won’t do it, because they can’t target treat the actual cause of cellulite. Essentially, cellulite is caused by little pockets of subcutaneous fat that sits just below the skin giving it that dimpled appearance that resembles and orange peel.

The dimpling effect is caused by inflated fat cells which sit between the connective tissue of the skin and the muscles underneath. Those fat cells raise the skin, while the connective tissues remain in place causing the skin to have that uneven, indented appearance.

Some women have the misconception that liposuction, which permanently removes fat can do very little for cellulite. While there is no permanent cure for cellulite, Skintastic of the Dallas-area utilizes SmoothShapes VX along with deep lymphatic massage to reduce the fat that causes cellulite.

SmoothShapes VX is a tool which uses lasers and light to zap subcutaneous fat cells. SmoothShapes is hand-held glider which utilizes rollers massage the treatment area while light and lasers permeate and melt the fat cells responsible for the dimpling effect. The deep massaging action helps move the fat so it can be absorbed by the body.

A number of cellulite treatments are available, but plastic surgeon Dr. Jeffery Adelglass of Skintastic chose SmoothShapes because it is an effective yet gentle method that utilizes the body’s natural processes to eliminate fat.

SmoothShapes requires no incisions, no needles and there is no recovery time so it is an ideal procedure for anyone and has been featured in numerous news programs including “The View.”
