Maintaining your Velashape II Results

Velashape II is an effective, non-invasive way to help reduce the appearance of cellulite, but there are plenty of ways you can keep your skin smooth and free of dimples at home to prolong your Velashape II results and enjoy smoother, firmer, healthier skin.

Drink Plenty of Water

We hear this one all the time, and tend to pay it little mind, but drinking water consistently throughout the day is excellent for your health in general, and especially for your skin. Keeping up a steady intake of water helps your body better flush out waste and keeps your skin hydrated. In addition to maintaining a healthy diet, with minimal intake of junk or processed foods, water consumption makes your body most efficient at doing its job of keeping healthy blood flow and moving out waste, helping to prevent cellulite formation.

Keep up an Exercise Routine

As cellulite forms when pockets of fat push against tight bands under the skin, keeping a healthy weight and building muscle is essential for minimizing cellulite after your Velashape II treatments. Working to tone problems areas, such as the buttocks and backs of legs, can assist in the long-run in the fight against cellulite.

Utilize Appropriate Topical Skin Creams

The application of anti-cellulite skin creams is an important step to keeping a smoother figure. An essential part of our patient education process is informing Velashape II users how they can best incorporate the right skin products between visits. Our team of technicians can recommend the best regimen for your goals.

Maintain a Velashape II Treatment Schedule

In addition to healthy habits at home, one of the most effective ways to fight cellulite through medical spa treatments is to keep up with a consistent schedule of care. At Newport Beach MedSpa’s two locations, you can return for touch ups every three months or so (or as many as your choose), to keep your skin smooth and free of the appearance of cellulite. Our Velashape II Membership keeps you in shape all year long.

Why Patients Love NeoGraft

Reading reviews about the NeoGraft® procedure online will confirm why it’s becoming so many patients’ first choice for hair restoration. Compared to traditional hair restoration that involve grafts and surgical processes, the FUE method of restoring hair provides patients with more natural looking results and the most gentle way to replace thinning hair.

Our Newport Beach hair transplant patients love NeoGraft® FUE hair transplants because they offer:

Improved Comfort – No cutting and no surgical processes means less discomfort and better patient tolerance. Most patients experience only minor swelling and felt comfortable going back to their daily routine after treatment. Many individuals who choose the NeoGraft® procedure report the process as being completely comfortable with the help of local anesthetic and state that the recovery period was also far more manageable than they imagined.

Better Overall Treatment Experience – Patients report former methods of hair restoration as being unnecessarily invasive and producing results that look unnatural. Compared to the strip method of hair transplantation, pieces of skin and scalp are not removed with the FUE method. Patients who had previously chosen the strip method are pleasantly surprised by the overall non-invasiveness of the NeoGraft® procedure so much so that they were eager to return for additional treatments to more comprehensively replace lost or thinning hair.

Speedier Recovery – Because NeoGraft® technology transplants individual hair follicles, instead of using large donor patches of skin, there is far less downtime associated with treatment. Patients love that getting a hair restoration does not have to be a major event that requires they carve out time in their schedules to recover from surgery. NeoGraft® FUE hair transplant patients do not have to deal with large, embarrassing scars.

Life-Changing Results – Years ago, pursuing treatment for thinning hair meant running the risk that plugs  or strip hair restoration would leave your hair or hairline looking obviously altered. NeoGraft® technology is able to provide life-changing results by allowing your hair to look as natural as possible. Patients feel confident knowing that their restored hair does not show tell-tale signs of transplanting.

SmartLipo Laser Liposuction: How it Works

Minimizing fat deposits is a problem that modern cosmetic procedures have been able to make more comfortable and efficient. Among the most effective ways to reduce pockets of fat in problem areas on your body is liposuction. In recent years, liposuction has been advanced with the help of laser technology. Laser liposuction is the gentler way to predictably remove fat accumulation and has the extra added benefit of producing collagen from under the skin which promotes skin tightening.

How Does Laser Liposuction Work?

Lasers are utilized in fat removal treatments to facilitate the easier removal of fat cells. Traditionally, in standard liposuction procedures, fat cells are removed through the use of a back and forth suctioning motion.  This treatment method will indeed remove fat cells in the treated area, but the force of motion needed to successfully remove fat can create discomfort or leave the surface of skin less smooth than desired.

Using a laser in conjunction with traditional liposuction tools  allows fat to be removed in a way that is gentler on tissue. The laser first liquefies fat so that it can be suctioned without force. While the general process for fat removal with laser is the same – a cannula, or small tube, is inserted through into treatment areas to remove fat cells – the addition of the laser makes all the difference in terms of patient experience and procedure outcomes.

Laser Technology for the Benefit of Successful Fat Removal

Lasers are now used in a variety of medical treatments, from dentistry to cosmetic surgery for fat removal. Utilizing varying wavelengths, lasers can target different tissues for more efficient treatment. Liposuction lasers utilize a wavelength that can help to specifically and more easily treat fat cells while creating minimal disruption for skin. Lasers also generally assist in the treatment healing process, as they seal tissue, promoting a more comfortable recovery period with less bleeding and bruising.

Laser assisted fat removal surgery helps to deliver the kinds of results that patients are looking for -- sleeker silhouettes with smooth skin that looks and feels natural.
