Laser Hair Removal in Orange County: Is It Worth It?




Laser hair removal in Orange County is very popular, particularly since this method of removing hair is deemed effective and cheaper in the long run. How so?

In an area such as Orange County, most folks are used to impromptu beach parties. However, sparing a minute or two to shave your legs and armpits could result in shave burns and wounds that might only render your skin tender – not to mention ruin the appeal of the outfit you’re planning to wear. Aside from this, regular plucking, shaving, and waxing hair could take its toll on the skin. The mere act of yanking hair off the armpits, for example, could cause chicken skin, bumps, and uneven skin tone. On the other hand, shaving and waxing could wound and damage surrounding areas.

If you’ve had enough of plucking, shaving, or waxing, then it’s time to consider the benefits of laser hair removal. Laser hair removal is painless and ideal for removing unwanted hair from the face, underarm, bikini line, arms, legs, and other areas. Each session lasts from a few minutes to an hour or so, depending on the area that should be treated. To give you an idea, laser hair removal for the upper lips could last for a few seconds, while applying the procedure on the legs could last for as long as an hour.

How does it work? The procedure utilizes highly concentrated light energy that is directed towards hair follicles in problem areas. Light is absorbed by the hair follicle, which, in turn, becomes damaged. The laser directly targets hair and does not affect the surrounding area, resulting in fewer blemishes.

What’s more, it has the added benefit of permanently removing unwanted hair. About 90 percent of laser hair removal patients can attest that permanent hair loss on problem areas was achieved after three to five sessions, indicating that the treatment will pay for itself many times over in the course of your lifetime. You no longer have to buy good razors, hot or cold waxing agents, or shaving creams – all of which run the risk of wounding and irritating your skin. Most importantly, you’ll be saving precious time by never having to shave, pluck, or wax again.

You’ll be able to enjoy the freedom of stepping out of the house without worrying about the length and coarseness of hair in your exposed body parts. You’ll be more confident and able to wear all the sleeveless tops you want without having to lower your arms every time someone else is nearby.

Botox in Orange County: How it Helps Boost Confidence




While it would be nice to think that character speaks volumes more than appearance, the fact remains that some women are often judged even before they utter a word – just because of the way they look. Due to this, many turn to aesthetic enhancing procedures such as Botox. In Orange County, procedures such as Botox, skin resurfacing, and laser wrinkle removal are so popular that even spas and clinics all over Southern California are offering them.

For most women, having control over the way they look and delaying aging gives them more confidence in their daily activities. They do not feel the pressure of needing to look good constantly, as the effects of a Botox treatment could last up to four months, depending on the treated area. A treatment could delay the signs of aging, such as wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines, while they undergo what is globally recognized as one of the safest ways to relax facial muscles and restore a firm, youthful appearance.

Prior to the popularity of Botox, most patients would have to rely on cosmetic surgery to tighten their facial features and make them look more youthful. By embracing the marvel that is Botox, patients no longer have to contend with the risks of surgery to make them look younger, as an injection or two may be enough to tone their cheeks and facial muscles. There are minimal downsides to Botox in comparison with other skin rejuvenating treatments.

As it turns out, aside from the obvious physical benefits of Botox, it also does something to a patient’s demeanor, too.

Most patients reported that they felt more confident and sure of themselves as they conversed with peers and colleagues after their Botox treatments, particularly those in industries that are being run by millennials. Prior to the treatment, some were hesitant to speak up or to ask for what is their due simply because they were holding back, feeling inadequate and insecure to try to impose their will on younger-looking personalities. After the treatment, the ground leveled and they were able to follow their dreams and be happier, simply because the baggage of feeling like a has-been was gone.

These patients are able to realize their worth as contributing citizens to the society, and are then ready to build a better future for their communities. All these positive changes took place when they got their treatments, looked in the mirror, and saw that they still have it – they can still make a difference.

Chemical Peel: A Skin Color Correction Treatment that Helps Reveal Smoother, More Even Skin




The older you get and the more damaged your skin becomes, the older you look. That’s just how things go. While you can’t enjoy your youth forever, we have treatments that can help you look and feel younger longer! Chemical peels are among the most popular and most in-demand skin color correction treatments we offer here at Live Gorgeous OC, as this procedure can effectively improve your skin’s appearance and reveal smoother, healthier, and more radiant skin.

The skin is our body’s largest organ, and it’s also the most exposed. Every day and each time we step outside, we become exposed to countless elements that damage our skin—harmful ultraviolet rays, varying temperatures, dirt, and pollutants.

Do you constantly wish that you could simply peel age spots and damaged skin off your face? Chemical peels performed by qualified dermatologists and aestheticians do just this. Because our bodies are constantly shedding skin, chemical peels can enhance this biological process and help our skin easily shed off layers of the old skin so that newer, healthier skin cells come to the surface. Here at Live Gorgeous OC, we apply a special solution that seeps in the deep layers of your skin and stimulates it to shed more rapidly than normal. What is revealed later on is healthier and smoother skin that’s free from blemishes and other imperfections.

We perform chemical peels in order to address problems like age spots, freckles, acne, acne scars, dry and sun-damaged skin, dull complexion, as well as fine lines around the eyes and mouth.

The skin color correction treatment we provide can effectively minimize the effects of aging, sun damage, and other skin conditions. We also recommend it to patients with melasma and skin discoloration that can’t be resolved by other types of treatments. Whether you’re interested in undergoing a chemical peel to treat an existing skin problem or simply want to minimize the signs of aging, you’ll be able to achieve a wide range of benefits such as fewer wrinkles, smoother skin, brighter complexion, and more even skin tone through this procedure.

Want to know if you’re a good candidate for a chemical peel? Please get in touch with us and call us at 714-754-1985 to schedule an appointment soon. During your initial consultation, we will listen to your concerns and determine the best course of treatment for your condition.

Aside from chemical peels, we also have wrinkle removal and skin tightening procedures such as laser treatments, dermal fillers, and non-surgical facelifts to help you achieve smoother, more youthful skin.

ReFirme: The Non-surgical Solution for Skin Tightening in Orange County




Did you always want to get a facelift to get smoother, more youthful looking skin but were too afraid of the pain or going under the knife? Thankfully, non-surgical facelifts are now possible. Thanks to a revolutionary treatment for skin tightening in Orange County called ReFirme with Elõs™ (electro-optical synergy), you can now have smoother, healthier skin without surgery or downtime.

ReFirme is an FDA-approved non-invasive procedure that features the innovative Elõs technology. The treatment helps smoothen and tone your skin without surgery by targeting the most obvious signs of aging, including sagginess and laxity in the brow line, jowl, and neck, as well as crow’s feet and nasolabial folds. It can also be used on other areas of the body like the chest, arms, stomach, and buttocks. Unlike other laser skin treatments that take up a lot of time and require extended recovery periods from patients, this revolutionary solution for sagging and wrinkled skin is quick and virtually painless.

ReFirme with Elõs technology works by combining bi-polar radio frequency and light energies to heat the dermal tissue within affected areas. Compared to intense pulse light (IPL) and conventional laser treatments, Elõs technology is safer, non-invasive, and doesn’t result in any scars. The combination of these technologies, as well as ReFirme’s ability to accurately target specific areas of the skin, successfully guarantees a comfortable, effective, and quick procedure with no downtime.

The ReFirme skin tightening treatment is so gentle that it can be used on any type of skin and skin color. It also doesn’t require sedation or anesthesia. In fact, some of our patients have even reported that they’ve undergone skin tightening in Orange County during their lunch break and were able resume their activities immediately!

The benefits of ReFirme with Elõs technology are obvious from the very first treatment, but to see the full results and effects of the procedure, we recommend that patients come in for 3 to 6 visits depending on their skin condition. After you’ve completed your treatment, you can look forward to significant wrinkle reduction and smoother, tighter, and more radiant skin.

Aside from ReFirme with Elõs, we here at Live Gorgeous OC also offer a wide range of other skin treatments such as wrinkle removal, chemical peels, and dermal fillers like Botox, Restylane-L, Perlane, and Perlane-L.
