Cellulite Treatment

Cellulite. Most women have it, but no woman wants it. In fact, studies show that up to 98% of women have some degree of cellulite. The dimpled, cottage cheese-like texture of cellulite can make you self-conscious and uncomfortable, especially in shorts or a bathing suit. Diet and exercise can produce only limited results. Dr. Thomas McNemar offers an effective FDA-cleared solution called SmoothShapes™. This advanced cellulite treatment helps patients coming from the San Francisco Bay Area, Pleasanton and Modesto achieve a dramatic improvement in the appearance of treated areas.

The Causes of Cellulite

Have you ever noticed that very trim, athletic women often have cellulite, while even the most obese men do not? That is because women’s connective tissue, which is a fibrous network in the hypodermis, is different from men’s. Male connective tissue suppresses the subcutaneous fat layer, preventing it from bulging through. Female connective tissue’s more open pattern allows for engorged fat cells to extrude into the dermis, creating the visible bumps we call cellulite.

How SmoothShapes Works

No other cellulite treatment takes the unique, scientific approach to cellulite that SmoothShapes does. SmoothShapes utilizes a proprietary technology called Photomology to treat the causes of cellulite: rigid connective tissue and engorged fat cells. Photomology uses specific laser and light wavelengths, combined with roller massage and vacuum to selectively treat the causes and the symptoms of cellulite.

The vacuum component of this treatment is used to prepare the skin for optimal laser and light penetration. The SmoothShapes laser penetrates into tissue and is absorbed by fat cells, which causes fat liquefaction. The 650 nm light makes the membrane of the fat cells more permeable, allowing the liquefied fat to escape into the lymphatic system. The contoured rollers of the SmoothShapes device assist in the elimination of this liquefied fat.

The result is more supple, flexible connective tissue and shrunken fat cells. Patients report smoother, tighter skin and can achieve a dramatic reduction in the appearance of cellulite.

What to Expect

SmoothShapes treatment typically requires 8 sessions, performed over 4 weeks, to produce optimal results. Additionally, an annual maintenance session is recommended. Patients report longer-lasting results than with other cellulite treatments, and there is none of the post-procedural pain and bruising as with other treatments. Furthermore, 81% of clinical study participants experienced a significant reduction in the volume of subcutaneous fat.

SmoothShapes is one of the most innovative cellulite treatments available. Dr. Thomas McNemar is among the small number of medical practitioners currently offering this state-of-the-art procedure. In addition, Dr. McNemar can provide a more complete enhancement with a complementary plastic surgery procedure, such as breast lift.

First off my procedure is not done until 1/20/21! Up until now I want to say that the Dr. Mc Nemar made me feel so comfortable. He was patient and kind as well as informative to all my questions. This is not my first cosmetic procedure. I have done my homework with what I am about to have done. I want to say that both Jasmin and Nash the office staff have always had a concern with all that I have come to ask and request. For that I would like to say thank you! Even today I received a call from Jasmin providing me with information that she did not have to provide. She went over and beyond and I wanted to acknowledge this. We as patients pay a lot of money and are faced with anxiety and many questions. When the office will provide you with all you need to make you comfortable that speak volumes. I am excited and can’t wait to have my procedure done with Dr Mc Nemar. I will come back I am sure with yet another testimonial of excellence. I have people that are waiting to see my results

I am here to review on the microdermabrasion facial service provided by Deborah. My skin was awful with break outs , aging and dull for few years. So I have finally made an initial visit with Deborah in nov.2020. she explained what she can help me with and what she will be doing throughout each step of the facial and was very happy to have an open discussion about other options to consider that would benefit a woman my age and my skin care concerns. It was a relaxing and pampering experience. My skin conditions has improved A LOT by just 3 visits and I had the procedure this afternoon. Skin looks plump and hydrated. I am feeling 10 yrs younger and feeling fantastic. The ladies working reception & check out were pleasant & friendly. My experience at this Tracy office was extremely satisfying and I would highly recommend Deborah for any skin/facial service you are considering. Thanks Deborah & staffs at Dr. McNemar! From Lily

Dr. McNemar preformed an abdominoplasty because I wanted to get rid of my 'mommy bulge' after 2 c-sections. He is a good communicator, has excellent bedside manner and answered all of my questions which eased my anxiety. More importantly, the results are amazing and the recovery wasn't bad at all. The first 2-3 days are the hardest but I got better and better each day. I feel more confident and fit into my clothes so much better than before. Thank you Dr. McNemar!

Had a breast reduction 7/31/20. Very happy with Dr McNemar and the results. What I’m not happy with is Flor who is very slow in submitting paperwork to EDD and my work to guarantee my job security. I’m still waiting on her as of today.
