Eliminate Unwanted Facial and Body Hair with Laser Hair Removal Treatments in Orange County




Over the course of your life, you will spend a significant amount of time getting rid of unwanted facial and body hair. Spend time on more important things and stop shaving, waxing, plucking, or using hair removal creams and other methods to minimize the appearance of unwanted hair! With Live Gorgeous OC treatments for laser hair removal in Orange County, you can do just that.

Sure, traditional hair removal methods like shaving, plucking, and waxing can remove hair quickly, but they can be messy and the results never last long enough. In the past, there have also been laser hair removal methods that have managed to offer promising results, but not without a lot of pain and other undesirable side effects. Finally, a laser hair removal method called Elōs came along.

Electro Optical Energy (Elōs) is type of hair removal technology that uses a combination of radio-frequency and light to leave the skin free from unwanted hair while avoiding harmful side effects. The gentle pulse of these two targeted energies delivers a more efficient hair removal procedure that is safe and comfortable for the patient. With Elōs, laser hair removal is safe and possible for virtually any part of the body, whether it’s on the underarms, legs, back, as well as sensitive areas such as the face and bikini areas.

Elōs is different from other laser hair removal methods because unlike ordinary photoepilation, it destroys the hair follicle completely, making it the true permanent hair removal solution. It is also safe to use on all hair colors and types, including very light hairs called “vellus.” Compared to other hair removal methods, patients are happy to report that they’ve experienced very minimal discomfort with Elōs.

Removal of facial hair with Elōs typically takes about 15 to 20 minutes only. Through this procedure, you could actually get rid of all your unwanted facial hair in less time than it takes to have lunch. And the results are permanent!

While most patients see a significant reduction in hair growth after the first treatment, you may need around 5 to 7 additional treatments to achieve the full effect of Elōs. This is because the laser treats hair follicles in the active phase and hair usually grows at different rates, depending on where it’s located in your body. Should you experience hair re-growth after your initial treatment, these would be from damaged follicles that would be fully eliminated later on.

So if you’re still tolerating messy wax treatments to get rid of hair on your upper lip or painful waxing or threading sessions to eliminate hair on your underarms or legs, do yourself a favor and contact us to book an appointment at Live Gorgeous OC. Our laser hair removal treatments are quick, virtually painless, and best of all, permanent. You’ve got nothing to lose except unwanted hair!

Combat the Signs of Aging with Skin Rejuvenation Treatments at Live Gorgeous OC




Time has a cruel way of reminding men and women that anyone is vulnerable to the changes age can bring. Before knowing it, our skin loses its youthful glow and radiance and now appears rough, dry, and wrinkled. Fear not! Here at Live Gorgeous OC, ourskin rejuvenation treatments could reverse the damage that time and other factors may have done to your face.

One of the most evident signs of aging is the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the face. This is also one of the biggest concerns our patients have when they see us. Thankfully, we have several options in our wrinkle-fighting arsenal that can help you reduce, minimize, and possibly eliminate unwanted wrinkles and fine lines. Read through the following paragraphs below to find out which treatments may be right for you:

Laser Treatments

Several developments have happened in the realm of laser treatments. Laser technology used in cosmetic treatments are now more modern and comfortable.

One of the most promising developments in laser technology is ReFirme, which has been dubbed the ‘non-surgical facelift’. Through Elōs technology, ReFirme is able to target sagging and wrinkled skin and allow you to achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance with little to no downtime.

Matrix wrinkle reduction treatments, on the other hand, stimulate the production of collagen to deliver a firming effect on loose skin. Patients can experience a reduction of mild to moderate wrinkles, and enjoy smoother, younger skin with no downtime at all.

Injectables

Here at Live Gorgeous OC, we also have a selection of different injectable fillers and treatments to address wrinkles in certain areas of the face. Our injectable treatments work by putting back volume into the areas that have gone slack or loose due to aging and other factors.

Radiesse is one of our premier options, as it structurally acts like a scaffold under your skin wherein your own collagen is stimulated to grow. This production of collagen promoted by Radiesse treatments can last for as long as several months.

Juvederm, on the other hand, is a smooth gel filler primarily used to treat the areas around your nose and mouth. It works by replacing hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a natural hydrating substance in the skin. You’ll surely be delighted with the results of Juvederm, as it has been found to deliver returned volume in the skin with a smoother look and feel. What’s more, the effects of this treatment can last up to a year.

Finally, there’s Botox and Dysport, which are similar in function. Both work by relaxing the muscles that cause frown lines, as well as other overactive muscles that can cause forehead lines and crow’s feet near the eyes. Results can last from 4 to 6 months.

Aside from the skin rejuvenation treatments we mentioned above, we also offer other treatments that can help you eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. Click here to learn more about the other services we offer at Live Gorgeous OC.
