Non-invasive Cosmetic Treatments for Stretch Marks




Stretch marks aren’t exclusive to women who have recently given birth. Men and women can develop these for a number of reasons. Luckily, there are a good number of non-invasive cosmetic treatments that can effectively reduce the visibility of these stretch marks. Today’s technological advancements in cosmetics now make it possible to correct skin imperfection without having to undergo surgery. And here at LiveGorgeous OC, you can find some of the best and most advanced non-surgical cosmetic treatments that can effectively address specific problem areas.

Common Causes of Stretch Marks

While it is common to associate stretch marks with pregnancy, these can appear on the body for a number of reasons. In other words, stretch marks aren’t limited to post-pregnancy skin conditions. Men can develop them too, as well as women who have never even been pregnant.

Some of the most common causes of stretch marks are: genetics, puberty, body building, and corticosteroids medication. These can develop on the abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, lower back, arms, and chest.

For some, stretch marks appear after losing a considerable amount of weight. When the skin has been considerably stretched and then you suddenly lose weight, you may experience not only loose and sagging skin, but stretch marks as well.

Whatever the cause, there are effective ways to correct this particular skin imperfection through non-invasive cosmetic treatments.

Treatments

For a lot of people, the initial corrective measure to consider is the one that’s easiest to obtain: over-the-counter creams and lotions. These are specifically formulated to lighten the appearance of or eliminate stretch marks altogether. While it may take awhile to see visible results, their effectiveness has been attested to by quite a number of people who have used them for this particular skin issue. On the other hand, if you want faster results, you may choose to receive a laser skin treatment from a reputable cosmetic clinic like LiveGorgeous OC.

We understand how frustrating it can be sometimes to wait for results to appear, which is why we recommend a laser skin treatment for patients who wish to see visible results in just a few sessions.

We invite you to contact us at your convenience so we can discuss our non-invasive cosmetic treatments to correct stretch marks and other skin imperfections. Tell us your treatment goals and timeline, and we’ll provide you with a treatment plan that works well for you with these considerations in mind. Please feel free to call us at 714-754-1985. You may also send us an email at Appointment@LiveGorgeousOC.com to schedule an appointment.

Through our advance technologies in non-surgical skin treatments, you can get that beach-perfect skin in time for the summer.

Acne Scars

Acne scars can appear anywhere, not just on the face. Some people suffer from acne breakouts on the back and chest area, and unfortunately, they almost always leave a scar once they’ve healed. To regain your flawless skin, there are two skin rejuvenation treatments that you can consider: laser skin resurfacing and chemical peel. Both of these procedures can effectively lighten acne scars, and since these are non-surgical, you won’t have to allocate much time for recovery. Depending on the size of the treated area, you can go back to your regular activities within one to two days after treatment.

Spider Veins

Spider veins may not be painful (as compared to varicose veins) but they are still unsightly. Reveal your legs without feeling self-conscious by having your spider veins treated through our laser vein treatment. Our revolutionary AccuVein treatment effectively removes spider veins in just a few short sessions. No longer will you have to see those unsightly veins again once you’ve completed your AccuVein treatment plan!

Wrinkles, Fine Lines, and Sagging or Loose Skin

As we mentioned earlier, we want to help you reveal your most gorgeous self, which means we will not only be correcting skin imperfections on your body, but we will also treat skin problems on your facial area.

For wrinkles, fine lines, sagging jowl, loose skin around the neck area, sagging brows and nasolabial creases, we provide various skin tightening treatments specifically for these target areas. From laser wrinkle reduction to dermal fillers and Botox, we’ve got the right treatment for your specific facial skin imperfections.

Smoother, Hair-free Legs, Arms, and Back

Last but not the least is removal of unwanted hair. Our laser hair removal procedure provides you with longer-lasting effects compared to the usual and tedious—and painful—process of shaving, waxing or plucking. Get into your bikini and hit the beach right away without having to worry about unsightly hair growth! This treatment is also recommended for underarm hair growth, as well as back and chest hairs.

Lighten Post-pregnancy Scar with LiveGorgeous OC's Laser Skin Treatment




After giving birth to a healthy baby via C-section, women are often left with a noticeable scar on the belly area. Even if your doctor made a bikini cut incision, and people won’t notice the scar when you’re in your bikini, you’ll still know it’s there. A laser skin treatment can significantly reduce the visibility of your post-pregnancy scar. In fact, it can effectively lighten the scar that even you might not notice it’s there!

At LiveGorgeous OC, our goal is to make you look your best no matter what age, and no matter what skin problem you’re having. We wish for you, especially all hardworking moms, to look your most gorgeous self every day. And this starts with correcting your post-pregnancy scar.

Pixel Laser Resurfacing

There are two types of laser treatments that you can get to lighten your scars. The first one is the traditional laser skin treatment and the second one is LiveGorgeous OC’s pixel laser resurfacing.

What’s the difference?

There are several distinct differentiations between these two types of treatments, foremost of which is the extent of the laser treatment in terms of the target area. With a traditional laser treatment, the scar and the skin surrounding it are targeted. So basically, the treated area becomes larger, which prolongs healing. Recovery usually takes between two weeks to one month.

With a pixel laser resurfacing treatment, only the scar will be touched by the laser light. By using non-ablative fractionated technology, each laser pass only targets a small area of the skin, thereby reducing the extent of the area that needs to heal after treatment. What this ultimately means is that you will feel very little discomfort, and the recovery period is much shorter. As a matter of fact, most patients experience no downtime at all, which enables them to immediately go back to their usual routine.

So if you’re ready to go back to work after your maternity leave and wish to look and feel great before going back to the office, this type of laser skin treatment will do wonders for you! Because apart from lightening your post-pregnancy scar, pixel laser resurfacing can also correct other skin issues like acne scars, age spots, sun spots, and other skin discoloration conditions like melasma.

We invite to schedule an appointment today so we can get started right away with your skin treatment. You may reach us at 714-754-1985. Call us to schedule an initial consultation and evaluation with our skin experts!

Effectively Lighten Adult Acne Scars with a Skin Color Correction Treatment




With the right skin color correction treatment, you don’t have to be scarred for life. There are cosmetic treatments available that can visibly lighten acne scars without having to undergo cosmetic surgery.

Just when you thought you’ve outgrown pimples and acne now that you’re an adult, out they appear from out of nowhere. For children hitting puberty, pimples and acne are a common occurrence, and they usually outgrow this once they hit adulthood. Or so you thought. Even adults get facial acne, even when they’re well past their 30s.

There are various factors that can contribute to the development of adult acne. Most of the time, it’s because of a hormonal imbalance, which may be naturally occurring in your body or may be caused by certain medications that you are taking. Lithium, anti-seizure, and corticosteroid medications can also cause acne.

Check with a licensed dermatologist or doctor if your medications are causing your acne.

Chemical peel to lighten acne scars

Acne scars could develop if the acne condition isn’t treated properly. Even if you don’t touch or rub it, scarring may still occur once the acne has subsided. And scarring could be more pronounced in adults. If the scars aren’t treated, they could get even darker especially if you are not accustomed to using sunscreen every day. And you may have to deal with the scars permanently. Immediate attention is important if scars are to be effectively removed or reduced.

At LiveGorgeous OC, we have treated a number of patients dealing with adult acne scars. For most of them, an invasive cosmetic procedure is out of the question. Our recommended non-invasive alternative that’s equally effective, if not more, is a chemical peel.

This procedure slowly peels off the skin’s outer layers while enabling the body’s natural healing process to develop new skin. The right dosage is critical to the success of this skin color correction treatment. If the chemical solution is not appropriate for the actual condition of the acne scar, it can either have little to no effect on the scar. If the solution is too strong, it can adversely harm the skin, which may worsen the condition. We do not advise a DIY chemical peel as it can further harm your skin.

Schedule an appointment with LiveGorgeous OC if you have more questions about how a chemical peel can visibly reduce acne scars or for consultation on skin color correction. You may reach us at 714-754-1985.
