How Does CoolSculpting® Compare with Other Technologies?




How Does CoolSculpting® Compare with Other Technologies? Here are the Top 3 Ways

In the world of cosmetics, innovations are continuously being developed to provide individuals—regardless of age and gender—with more options. A lot of innovations in body contouring and fat removal technologies have been introduced over the years, and CoolSculpting® is one of the best. “How does CoolSculpting® compare with other technologies?”

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that targets fats in the abdominal area, flanks or sides, under the chin, inner and outer thighs, and upper arms. While the procedure is widely available worldwide, there are still those who have never heard of the fat reduction treatment, and often, the first question that comes to mind is; “How does CoolSculpting® compare with other technologies?”

To answer the question, here are the top three distinctive ways that CoolSculpting® separates itself from other fat reduction treatments:

It is non-invasive

A common concern people have about fat reduction/removal procedures is that they might need to undergo surgery in order to achieve their desired results. This is one of the most notable differentiating factors of CoolSculpting®: it’s non-invasive. Where other fat reduction technologies involve creating a small incision in the treatment area, CoolSculpting® eliminates the need for incisions and other invasive applications altogether. And because it is non-invasive, there is no downtime or recovery period involved. The patient can immediately go back to their usual routine after the treatment. Additionally, there will be no scars to show that you went through the procedure.

Ideal for those who are already within their ideal weight

One of the factors that people want to find out with regard to the question: “How does CoolSculpting® compare with other technologies?” if it can help them lose weight. CoolSculpting® isn’t intended for people who want to lose weight, as it is not a weight loss treatment. Treatments designed to help people lose weight usually involve extensive surgical procedures. The best candidate for CoolSculpting® is someone who is already within his or her ideal weight range, but have fat deposits they wish to eliminate.

It utilizes a cooling technology

Finally, CoolSculpting® uses a cooling technology that freezes fat cells. Where other technologies make use of laser heat which can be quite uncomfortable, even painful CoolSculpting® won’t have this level of pain or discomfort. The freezing technology kills the targeted fat cells, allowing the body to eliminate these dead fat cells naturally. If you don’t see visible results immediately after the procedure; don’t worry. Visible results will begin to show about a week or two after the procedure, while optimum results are achieved with two to three months after treatment.

CoolSculpting®: The #1 Non-invasive Procedure With 30 Million Patients

When it comes to non-invasive fat reduction procedures, CoolSculpting® continues to be one of the most popular treatments. In fact, as the #1 non-invasive procedure with 30 million patients, CoolSculpting has found wide use among men and women alike. It saw a 5% increase last year in total procedures done compared to the year before. This is according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons’ annual plastic surgery statistics report.

As the #1 non-invasive procedure, with 30 million patients treated to date, one can say that there are at least 30 million reasons why CoolSculpting could be the fat reduction treatment you need. For your convenience, we’ve listed below three of the most compelling reasons that made CoolSculpting popular, which should give you a good idea as well, of the kind of fat reduction treatment you’re signing up for:

1. Effective against stubborn fats in different areas – CoolSculpting works on different areas of the body. Whether it’s the abdomen, thighs, or flanks, CoolSculpting can target and freeze the fat cells in that trouble area. If you’ve ever struggled with love handles, “man boobs,” or a “muffin top,” know that CoolSculpting can permanently eliminate the fat cells there, and without the hard effort of exercising. As a result, you get a toned and more contoured body, all thanks to the #1 non-invasive procedure with 30 million patients – CoolSculpting.

2. No surgery means no scars and no downtime – There is no surgery involved in the country’s #1 non-invasive procedure. With 30 million patients treated, you’d be hard pressed to find a patient that developed a scar or wound because of CoolSculpting. Naturally, because there are no knives or other sharp objects during treatment, there is also no downtime. A CoolSculpting procedure typically only lasts an hour, so you can quickly resume your activities immediately after.

3. See changes as early as 3 weeks – CoolSculpting didn’t become the #1 non-invasive procedure with 30 million patients for nothing. You can expect visible results as early as 3 weeks. For optimum results, however, two to three months after treatment is the sweet spot. After CoolSculpting treatment, you’ll be delighted to discover that you fit into your old clothes once more. To maintain the best possible results, you’ll have to continue your exercise regimen while eating a healthy diet. This is so you don’t develop new fat cells.

Holidays Get-togethers and Reunions: Look Your Best with CoolSculpting®




 

CoolSculpting® In Time for the Holidays

Among the different events celebrated in a year, the holidays are one of the busiest times; when dinner get-togethers and family gatherings abound. While the holidays may still be several weeks away, now is the perfect time to prepare yourself, so you’ll come out looking your best when you meet friends and family. CoolSculpting® is the solution that will help you attain that slim and toned body you’ve always wanted.

CoolSculpting for the Holidays

The holidays are supposed to be a time of joy, but for some people, they feel anything but as they get hit with the holiday blues. One reason for this may be due to their dissatisfaction with themselves, such as with how they look or how they’ve spent the year thus far. If you’re not happy with what you see in the mirror, with those love handles and fat bulges, you may find yourself looking for excuses not to attend those parties during the holidays. However, this shouldn’t be reason not to partake in the festivities of the holidays, especially with CoolSculpting fat reduction treatment available.

CoolSculpting uses a fat-freezing technology that eliminates fat cells in the body permanently. Developed by Harvard scientists, CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling to crystallize fat cells. After freezing the fat cells, the body then disposes of the targeted fat cells naturally over time, resulting in a more contoured body. Many patients who have undergone CoolSculpting soon find that they can wear whatever they want without trouble, like their old pair of jeans, for example. This treatment is commonly used on the abdomen, flanks, and thighs. This has made CoolSculpting a popular fat reduction treatment, more so because there is no surgery or downtime involved in the procedure.

Kill Off 20% of Your Fat Cells Before Tomorrow Morning with CoolSculpting®




CoolSculpting®: The Best Non-surgical Way to Kill Off 20% of Your Fat Cells Before Tomorrow Morning

CoolSculpting® is a breakthrough in non-invasive fat reduction treatments. To put it simply, it can kill off 20% of your fat cells before tomorrow morning without surgery and downside.

Cosmetic innovations, diet and fitness trends, and even weight loss beverages are aplenty nowadays. This means when it comes to fat reduction or weight loss options, the market isn’t left wanting. But here’s the caveat; you shouldn’t apply any of these in your fat removal regimen without consulting a professional health and fitness practitioner first, especially if you’re trying something for the first time. This is because there is no one-size-fits-all option among weight loss treatments. Each one is designed for a specific audience.

For instance, CoolSculpting® is intended for people who are near or within their ideal body weight range. If you are a good candidate for it, it can effectively kill off 20% of your fat cells before tomorrow morning, so to speak.

How does it work?

CoolScuplting® uses advanced controlled cooling technology to freeze the fat cells in the target areas, “killing” them in the process. The dead fat cells are then naturally eliminated by the body. These fat cells, once eliminated, are gone for good, which translates to long-lasting results. The procedure takes about 40 to 60 minutes. While short, it can kill off 20% of your fat cells before tomorrow morning. There is no downside or recovery period involved as well; you can go back to your regular routine immediately after treatment.

While it does kill off 20% of your fat cells before tomorrow morning, you won’t see noticeable results until a few weeks after treatment because you will have to allow your body to eliminate the dead fat cells naturally. You will see optimum results in about two to three months.

As mentioned above, there is no one-size-fits-all fat reduction treatment out there, including CoolSculpting®. This FDA-cleared fat reduction procedure is most effective for people who are near or within their ideal body weight. It is not a weight-loss solution, but instead, an effective body contouring treatment for the ideal candidate.

To find out if you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting®, please feel free to give us a call at 714-754-1985 to schedule an appointment. You may also send us an email at info@livegorgeousoc.com for questions or inquiries.

If you can’t wait to kill off 20% of your fat cells before tomorrow morning, give us a call today!

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.

Depending on the size of the treated area, you can go back to your regular activities within one to two days after treatment.

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.

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.

Non-invasive Skin Rejuvenation Treatments for Facial Skin Problems




The technological advances in cosmetic procedures now enable both men and women to correct various facial skin problems without having to undergo painful and costly surgery. These non-invasive skin rejuvenation techniques can reduce the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines, even out your skin tone, and give you a natural-looking face lift.

At LiveGorgeous OC, you can undergo one or a combination of these procedures to give you the smoother and fresher-looking skin that you’ve always wanted. With no surgical procedure necessary, you experience practically no downtime, which means you can go back to your regular routine in no time—usually immediately after treatment, depending on the procedure.

Wrinkles and Fine Lines

For wrinkles and fine lines, including crow’s feet and creases on the forehead, there are several skin rejuvenation procedures to choose from. These are:

  • Laser-assisted wrinkle reduction treatments
  • Dermal fillers
  • Botox

Laser-assisted wrinkle removal at LiveGorgeous OC is basically done through two techniques: Matrix and ReFirme. Matrix is ideal for reducing the appearance of smoker’s lines and wrinkles. This can also help tighten the skin under the chin. Through the use of a fractionated laser technology, deep-set wrinkles are visibly reduced.

ReFirme, on the other hand, is a laser-assisted wrinkle remover that combines electrical and optical energy through a technology known as Elõs. This procedure corrects wrinkles, while also improving skin laxity and tightening the skin.

Botox and dermal fillers are often regarded as one and the same, but they’re two different techniques. Botox temporarily paralyzes facial muscles that cause wrinkles while dermal fillers are used to plump-up the skin, giving it a stretch that can reduce wrinkle visibility. Each procedure also uses a different solution.

Skin Color Correction

For age spots, sun spots, and even freckles, a popular choice among our patients at LiveGorgeous OC is a chemical peel. Chemical peels evens out the skin tone, but since these involve a chemical solution to induce skin peeling, it is advised that you only get this from a trusted and experienced clinic.

Natural-looking Lift

To tighten the skin, especially around the jaws and chin areas without a surgical facelift, the recommended skin rejuvenation treatment is Ultherapy. This is an FDA-approved non-invasive cosmetic treatment that uses ultrasound to tighten loose skin, giving it a natural-looking lift.

The procedure takes about 60 to 90 minutes, and is a cost-effective and virtually painless alternative to a surgical face lift.

If you wish to set an appointment with LiveGorgeous OC for initial consultation and evaluation, please call 714-754-1985 at your convenience.

Get Safe, Physician-Assisted Laser Hair Removal Treatment This Summer




Many women may be looking to get laser hair removal treatment now just in time for summer. However, one shouldn’t just get this procedure done just anywhere. To get the best possible results, it is advised you only undergo this sensitive procedure under the care and guidance of a licensed doctor; otherwise you run risk of developing complications or not getting the most out of your time and money.

Laser Hair Removal

Whether you’ll be treating your under arms or legs, laser hair removal is a safe and gentle procedure that won’t take too much of your time. In fact, you can have the procedure done in as short as an hour and go back to your regular routine immediately.

While many women may still resort to waxing, shaving, and plucking; summer, as the season of baring bodies, may call for a more practical approach to personal hair grooming. This is because aside from the hassles of having to shave and pluck frequently, you may still have to watch out for nicks, ingrown hair, rashes, and chicken skin—problems you won’t have to worry about with laser treatment.

As a viable long-term hair removal solution, laser treatment clearly offers benefits beyond monetary value. Even if you just thought of getting the procedure done because of the summer season, think of how much easier and faster your grooming routine will be from here on out, and even the whole year round!

Why Get Physician-Assisted Treatment

While laser treatment can do wonders for both men and women, the procedure is not without precautions. Unfortunately, there is little oversight as to who can perform it, so this means you will have to be more discerning of your options. One good question you may ask the personnel to assess their credibility is how many patients they’ve treated.

Aside from reduced effectiveness, a procedure gone wrong can result in complications. Some typical complications you may run into are scarring and pigmentary changes (hyperpigmentation), burns, or even increased hair growth which is why it is very important that only a licensed and experienced physician administers the procedure for you.

Here at Live Gorgeous OC, we have been in business for more than a decade, assuring you of our solid track record. We currently have full body hair removal packages available for our clients. For women, they can have their bikini area done while the men can have the hair on their neck and backs removed for good.

For inquiries about our laser hair removal services or to set a one-on-one appointment with our doctor, please do not hesitate to contact us at 714-754-1985; we’d be glad to hear from you!
