Eleme Medical Launches SmoothShapes(R) System in Kansas City Area

MERRIMACK, N.H., July 31 /PRNewswire/ -- A premier aesthetics company focused on body shaping, Eleme Medical Inc. announced today that Gary D. Hall, MD, will be the first Kansas City plastic surgeon to offer the SmoothShapes(R) system for longer-lasting cellulite treatment at Rajeunir Medical Spas in Leawood, Lee's Summit and Northland Kansas City. Rajeunir is hosting a SmoothShapes open house to introduce the treatments to patients and the press on Tuesday, August 5 from 6-8pm. The address is 11401 Nall Ave. Suite 218 Leawood, Kansas 66211.

"After evaluating the technology and the clinical results, I found that SmoothShapes is an effective treatment for cellulite," said Dr. Hall. "Patients enjoy it because it seems to free them of cellulite without downtime, discomfort or side effects. The unique combination of laser and dynamic light therapy, in addition to contoured rollers and suction, appears to produce results that provide longer lasting cellulite reduction, without the need for monthly maintenance."

Designed to improve the appearance of cellulite and perfected after seven years of development, SmoothShapes effectively treats cellulite and is a non-invasive method for producing longer lasting results. The SmoothShapes device uses a proprietary technology called Photomology(R) which ultimately results in the appearance of tighter and smoother skin.

Thermal and non-destructive, Photomology's unique mechanism of action combines dynamic laser and light energy with mechanical massage and vacuum. This process impacts the tissue responsible for the appearance of cellulite-enlarged fat cells and inflexible collagen. SmoothShapes stimulates restoration of healthy cell activity by focusing on both the physical manifestations of cellulite and its underlying causes.

Dr. Hall's practice has been at the forefront of surgical and non-invasive cosmetic solutions. At the Rajeunir Medical Spas they specialize in non- invasive options to meet high patient demand for the treatments, especially cellulite improvement.

"Patients of every age are concerned about this problem, but until recently we've seen technology that wasn't specific for treating the enlarged fat cells and inflexible collagen that contribute to cellulite," explained Nathan Irvin, general manager of Rajeunir Medical Spa. "SmoothShapes actually liquefies the fat in cellulite areas and moves it out of the body via the lymphatic system resulting in smoother, tighter skin with improved appearance of cellulite."

"More than 85 percent of women develop cellulite, and treating it safely and effectively is one of the holy grails of dermatology," said Nancy M. Briefs, President and CEO of Eleme Medical. But now, unlike other systems designed to treat cellulite, SmoothShapes can significantly improve the appearance of cellulite without the pain, bruising and post-treatment discomfort."

Although the original SmoothShapes device gained FDA market clearance in July 2006, Eleme Medical pursued market preference studies at 16 test centers around the world. The SmoothShapes device officially launched at the American Academy of Dermatology annual meeting in February 2008.

"At Eleme Medical, we decided to take a disciplined, scientific approach to commercialization of our first cellulite device," said Briefs. "These additional preference studies allowed us optimize treatment protocols and enhance system performance. The SmoothShapes system now requires only eight treatments at twenty minutes per area."

Body Shaping Market: The emerging body shaping market segment is expected to grow from approximately $4.5 billion (device sales, procedures and fees) in 2006 to approximately $8.1 billion in 2011. (Source: Michael Moretti, "Global Body Shaping Market Analysis," March 2006)

About Cellulite: Dimpled, orange-peel-like skin that is bumpy and lax is actually the outward symptom of cellulite. Cellulite is a skin condition that results from enlarged fat cells trapped in an inflexible network of collagen located in the hypodermis. Women's skin visibly displays cellulite because their subcutaneous fat layer is separated by thin vertical columns in contrast to a crisscross network in men. Cellulite can't be controlled or improved by diet or exercise and more than 85 percent of women will develop it at some point in their life. Ultra slender supermodels, women devoted to a healthy lifestyle and diet, and even toned athletes can all have cellulite. Several factors contribute to the cause of cellulite. These include: genetics, hormones, vascular changes and inflammation.
