CoolSculpting is taking the world by storm. This innovative body contouring procedure is non-invasive and provides proven results. Using an FDA-cleared device, CoolSculpting delivers precisely controlled cooling to an area of your body. The treatment targets fat cells, crystallizing (freezing) them so they die and can be processed and disposed of easily by your body’s natural processes.

It’s the perfect treatment for getting rid of stubborn fat areas that haven’t responded to diet and exercise alone.

As a relatively new treatment option, many cosmetic surgery centers and medical spas are only in the beginning phases of their CoolSculpting programs. That’s why it’s more important than ever to select a CoolSculpting provider who has the experience needed and a track record of results with their patients.

Questions to Ask During Your Assessment

Before you receive the CoolSculpting procedure, you should begin with a consultation and full assessment. If you live in Southern California, you may consider consulting with the accredited Orange County CoolSculpting Specialist at CosmetiCare.

Here are some questions you should consider asking:

1. Has the specialist received the proper training and certification?

A CoolSculpting procedure can be performed by a medical technician, but not every technician is a specialist.

CoolSculpting University provides practitioners with specific training to help them apply the CoolSculpting device comfortably and most effectively. You should only receive the treatment from specialists who are accredited by the brand itself — don’t settle for knock-offs.

2. How much hands-on experience do you have?

Although the CoolSculpting treatment is relatively new, it’s been available long enough for most cosmetic surgery centers and medical spas to have a specialist on staff.

During your consultation, don’t hesitate to ask your provider how long they’ve offered the procedure or how many times they’ve performed it. The best practitioners have years of experience with the treatment.

3. How is the procedure performed?

As a patient, you have every right to know how the treatment will be performed and what effect it will have on your body. CoolSculpting is considered a painless procedure, and some people consider it relaxing (some patients even take a nap during the process).

But your provider should be able to give you a complete timetable for how long the procedure will take, as well as what you can expect during and after it.

Orange County CoolSculpting at CosmetiCare

When considering Orange County CoolSculpting providers, CosmetiCare should be at the top of your list. Not only are we an award-winning plastic surgery center and medical spa, but CosmetiCare has a certified in-house specialist with more than 5 years of experience using CoolSculpting technology.

If that isn’t enough, CosmetiCare’s specialist has been selected to attend CoolSculpting University Masters – an elite program for only the most experienced providers.

If you’re interested in CoolSculpting, only trust an accredited provider with years of experience. Contact CosmetiCare today to find out more or to schedule a free consultation.

The past several years have produced numerous breakthroughs in non-invasive aesthetic treatments. Procedures which were once the stuff of science fiction are now available in select cosmetic surgery centers and medical spas. Doctors, nurses, and certified technicians can literally melt fat away or, in the case of one of the latest innovations, freeze it away.

CoolSculpting is available in Orange County at CosmetiCare, the leading OC Plastic Surgery Center and MedSpa. And some of the earliest supporters of this exciting new treatment are none other than The Real Housewives of Orange County, Kelly Dodd and Shannon Beador, and from The Real Housewives of New York City, Sonja Morgan.

Kelly Dodd and Shannon Beador Try Orange County CoolSculpting at CosmetiCare

The Real Housewives of Orange County are discerning patients when it comes to cosmetic surgery. They’ve seen it all and know what works and what doesn’t work. CoolSculpting is clinically proven — thousands have received the treatment and the results are undeniable.

A little background on CoolSculpting: originally, two Harvard scientists discovered that frozen treats could reduce or eliminate small pockets of fat cells in people’s mouths. It was this revelation that began the research and studies that resulted in the CoolSculpting phenomenon.

CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared non-surgical treatment that freezes fat cells, making them easier for the body to process and eliminate. Known as cryolipolysis, the treatment is painless and is even considered relaxing by many.

In fact, Kelly Dodd took to Instagram to share about her first CoolSculpting experience with CosmetiCare’s Certified CoolSculpting Technician. In her Instagram post she said: “my first treatment @CosmetiCare today. She used the CoolSmooth applicator while I took a nap. Getting bikini body ready has never been so easy!”

RHOC cast member Shannon Beador also tried CoolSculpting. According to Inquisitr, she used CoolSculpting to slim down along with a healthy diet and exercise routine. Like Kelly Dodd, she even posted about her experience with CoolSculpting on social media:

Since trying CoolSculpting for the first time at CosmetiCare, both cast members have returned for additional treatments.

According to the CoolSculpting website, the procedure is now the world’s #1 non-surgical fat-reduction treatment.

Sonja Morgan Becomes the Face of New CoolSculpting Campaign

Kelly Dodd and Shannon Beador aren’t the only Housewives to love CoolSculpting. Philanthropist, fashion entrepreneur and mother, Sonja Morgan saw amazing results with the treatment as well.

Sonja Morgan recently partnered with CoolSculpting to become the face of the brand’s new “Let’s Get Real About Self-Care” campaign. The campaign is centered on the belief that self-care is no longer an indulgence but an essential part of people’s well-being. The goal of the campaign is to encourage women around the world to make self-care a priority and to educate more people about body sculpting as an option for reducing stubborn pockets of fat.

Throughout the campaign, Sonja Morgan will share self-care tips, tell her own CoolSculpting story, and participate in public outreach activities for the brand.

“I’m thrilled to be partnering with CoolSculpting and to talk honestly about taking the time to care for oneself,” Sonja Morgan said. “I’m proud of the body I have at my age.”

It’s a common myth that cosmetic surgery is only an option for women or that women are the only ones that pursue cosmetic surgery in the first place. But the truth is, procedures like facelifts, upper arm lifts, liposuction, and even breast reduction are all viable cosmetic surgery options for men as well — plenty of guys pursue liposuction right here in Orange County, and elsewhere in the country.

According to a study by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, about 13% of cosmetic surgical procedures and 8% of minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures in 2017 were performed on men. Minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures performed on men actually increased by 29% between the year 2000 and the year 2017.

Many men are now realizing that they too can benefit from the body-sculpting effects of liposuction.

Why Should Men Consider Liposuction?

Society is becoming more open to and accepting of plastic surgery as a whole. This has led more men to inquire about cosmetic procedures and pursue it as an option for achieving their ideal bodies.

As men age, they tend to accumulate fat around specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, the breast area, and along their chin and neck. In many cases, these fatty deposits can be addressed with a healthy diet and regular exercise. But lots of men struggle with fat in these areas that won’t go away despite their positive lifestyle changes.

Male liposuction is best suited for men who have pursued healthy weight loss through diet and exercise but still can’t get the body they want because of stubborn fat in specific areas. It is not a treatment for obesity.

However, liposuction alone is often all a man needs to correct problem areas. In addition to the abdomen, breast area, and neck area, men can get liposuction in their:

  • Upper arms
  • Buttocks
  • Calves and ankles
  • Chest and back
  • Hips and thighs

How Does Liposuction Work?

Liposuction is also known as lipoplasty or lipectomy. It is a type of cosmetic surgery that requires local or general anesthesia.

During the procedure, fat is broken up and physically removed from the body using an instrument called a cannula. The surgeon carefully inserts the cannula under the patient’s skin and  literally “sucks” the fat out using a vacuum.

The breaking down of fat can be accomplished through a few different methods. The three types of liposuction commonly used are:

  • Fluid-injected (tumescent) liposuction
  • Ultrasonic-assisted liposuction (UAL)
  • Power-assisted liposuction (PAL)

You should consult with your doctor to determine the best type of liposuction available for your specific needs.

It is important to know that there will be a recovery period after the operation. You may experience swelling and bruising, and you’ll need time to rest. However, most Orange County liposuction patients see the results of their operation within just a few weeks and recover quickly when following the instructions of their doctor.

Male Liposuction in Orange County

If you’re considering liposuction in Orange County, know that many men have benefited from outstanding results at CosmetiCare. If you’ve worked hard to achieve your ideal body but you’re still struggling with stubborn fat, request a free consultation with one of CosmetiCare’s board certified plastic surgeons to discuss your options.

If you have undesirable deposits of body fat on specific parts of your body and have been unsuccessful in reducing them through diet, exercise, and other methods, liposuction may be a great choice for you.

Liposuction targets specific areas on your body to remove excess fat. It’s an effective way to change and enhance the contour of your body. When performed by licensed professionals like the board-certified Orange County liposuction doctors at CosmetiCare, you can achieve permanent results when accompanied with a healthy diet and regular exercise.

Liposuction is an option for both men and women who want to target and lose excess fat. It is best suited for individuals who are close to their ideal body weight and those who have already used diet and exercise to achieve maximum results for their body.

Liposuction is one of the most common cosmetic surgeries in the United States.

How Liposuction Works

Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty or lipectomy, is a type of cosmetic surgery in which fat is broken up and physically removed from the body. The fat is removed through an instrument called a cannula. This instrument is inserted under the skin and “sucks” the fat out using a high-pressure vacuum.

Patients will typically undergo general anesthesia before the operation, although local anesthetics may be used in certain cases.

Liposuction can target these specific areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Chin and neck
  • Upper arms
  • Buttocks
  • Calves and ankles
  • Chest and back
  • Hips and thighs

There are three types of liposuction available at CosmetiCare. These are:

  • Fluid-injected (tumescent) liposuction
  • Ultrasonic-assisted liposuction (UAL)
  • Power-assisted liposuction (PAL)

Your doctor will be able to recommend the best technique for your specific needs.

After the operation, there may be some swelling and bruising. Most Orange County liposuction patients see the results of their operation after just a few weeks.

What Liposuction Can Do for You

Liposuction is not a method for overall weight loss. It is not considered a proper treatment for obesity. However, it is highly effective for treating areas of fat that have been resistant to dieting, exercising, and lifestyle changes.

If you’ve worked hard to improve your body but you are struggling with stubborn fat in certain areas, liposuction can help you complete your body transformation, so you can finally get the results you’ve always wanted.

In addition to its cosmetic benefits, liposuction may also be used to treat certain conditions, such as:

  • Lipomas: benign, fatty tumors
  • Lymphedema: A chronic condition that causes swelling in arms or legs
  • Lipodystrophy syndrome: When fat accumulates in one part of the body but is lost in another
  • Gynecomastia: Fat accumulation under men’s breasts

It is important to maintain a healthy weight after receiving liposuction. Patients who maintain a healthy weight after liposuction can typically expect permanent results.

Meghan King Edmonds has a newfound glow — and The Real Housewives of Orange County alum is letting us in on the skincare treatment that has her sharing back-to-back makeup-free selfies.

This past weekend, the mother of three stopped by CosmetiCare in Orange County for a microneedling session. Not only did Meghan share her full experience on Instagram, she also answered questions from followers about the procedure and posted photos of her results.

For those who aren’t familiar with the cosmetic method, microneedling involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny needles to help increase collagen. So naturally, one of the first questions Meghan received was “does the micro-needling hurt?” Meghan responded, “Nope bc you get numbing cream. Think of how your gums and lips feel when the dentist numbs you, then think about that whole feeling on your face.”

Another IG user asked Meghan if she did the “blood transfer” option (aka the vampire facial). This is when dermatologists take a sample of your blood, from which the PRP is extracted, and inject it into your skin via microneedling. RHOC ‘Wives Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd are fans of this bloody choice, but Meghan, not so much. “No no no I’m way too scared for that,” she replied.

(Watch the video above for Shannon’s take on the procedure.)

Once the treatment was done, Meghan shared a close-up selfie, which speaks for itself. Just look at that glow!

Less than 24 hours after the session, Meghan shared another selfie revealing some redness on her face from the tiny needles, but her glow was still intact. She also shared that her dark spots had “already disappeared or faded.”

The OC stunner even showed off her makeup-free, radiant complexion at the airport. “I might become addicted to microneedling,” she wrote in an IG post.

With results like this, we don’t blame you, Meghan. Glow on!

There’s no shortage of plastic surgery in Orange County. (If you don’t believe us, just watch the video above!) But, Shannon Beador prefers to keep her treatments non-invasive cosmetic procedures.

And whether she’s indulging in a little light shaving or in a facial that perks her complexion right up, The Real Housewives of Orange County pal has been known to invite her Instagram followers into her treatment rooms — where she keeps it very real.

In a March 21 Instagram Story, a bare-faced Shannon announced: “I’m here with Titi at CosmetiCare. This is what 55 looks like, people. So we’re getting a HydraFacial, try to perk this skin up.” (Side note: Shannon isn’t the only RHOC pal who loves HydraFacials. Kelly Doddloves the peptide blast the service includes, and Emily Simpson is also a fan.)

Take a look at Shannon’s glow:

Nurse Titi called it. “You wish you looked this good,” she said to followers, during Shanon’s Story.

There are perks to having a glamorous gang of girlfriends. For example, Shannon Beador once got a hot tip about a platelet-rich plasma facial from her pal Tamra Judge. And Shannon’s outspoken cast member Kelly Dodd has given her a memorable, erm,  “beauty tip” as well. As you may recall, on one early morning in Ireland, Kelly suggested: “Why don’t you start shaving your frickin’ chin off, with all that hair on there?” (Relive the tiff in the clip above.)

Since that Irish scuffle, Kelly and Shannon have, of course, become close buds. But Shannon still jokes about the line — especially while she is, in fact, having her face shaved.

In a recent Instagram post, the Real for Real Cuisine founder filmed herself during a dermaplaning session. “Shannon back again with the cutest little white beard,” joked her aesthetic nurse. “It’s not cute,” Shannon protested, but the nurse said: “It is so cute. We all have it; it’s OK.” Shannon said, grimly: “So now I’m a face shaver. I’m a dermaplaner.”

In her caption, The Real Housewives of Orange County pal paid winking homage that infamous line from Kelly. “Who would have thought I would be thanking Kelly Dodd one day for pointing out that I had hair on my face…” she quipped.

Who would have thought, indeed? For more about Shannon’s beauty routine, scroll down to see the contents of her beauty bag.

Is it possible to get toned abs while taking a nap? The Real Housewives of Orange County‘s Kelly Dodd is giving it a try. Kelly’s always up for taking her fans along via social media during her beauty treatments — remember when she tried microneedling and had the best caption about it?

Yesterday, Kelly got a jump on summer by visiting Orange County’s CosmetiCare to try CoolSculpting for the first time. It’s a non-surgical treatment that is said to freeze fat cells, which leads them to be naturally processed and eliminated.

If you’re wondering whether that hurts, Kelly makes it seem like a breeze in her Instagram caption.

“Anyone tried CoolSculpting yet? @woziemoore gave me my first treatment at @CosmetiCare_ today,” she writes. “She used the CoolSmooth applicator while I took a nap. Getting bikini body ready has never been so easy!”

She also filmed on Instagram Stories right before her treatment. “We’re working on Kelly’s abs, they’re already gorgeous. She actually wants to continue eating the way she wants,” CosmetiCare’s Rosie Moore said as she held the applicator. “They’re already gorgeous abs, but we’re going to get them a little tighter.”

Then they put Kelly in this contraption that Rosie said is “almost like a girdle.”

The whole treatment takes an hour and 15 minutes, which is when Kelly took her nap. Hopefully, she’ll update us on her CoolSculpting results!

Shannon Beador pledged earlier this month to set aside some self-care time to pamper her skin, and after trying dermaplaning, she’s now focusing on something a lot of us forget to moisturize: the neck. The Real Housewives of Orange County fitness fan went under the laser yesterday at Orange County’s Cosmeticare (the same spot where pal Kelly Dodd tried CoolSculpting).

Shannon wrote on Instagram: “I just tried another procedure called ClearLift on my neck @cosmeticare_ I’m pretty excited with the results and it only took 15 minutes! These are not professional or precise pictures, but check out my story to see the ‘before’ pic…”

Here are photos of Shannon’s neck before and after the skin resurfacing laser procedure, which CosmetiCare says can help with problems like sun damage, wrinkles, acne, and blotchiness without any downtime.

Shannon snapped a selfie video of the ClearLift laser in action, too.

Shannon smiled and talked throughout the procedure on her Instagram Stories as the laser flashed, so she didn’t seem too uncomfortable. CosmetiCare’s tech talked up the virtues of ClearLift as she chatted with Shannon in the video. “It helps with the crepiness, it helps with the pigmentation, it just gives it a nice lift,” she said.

“Perfect,” Shannon said, joking: “We need it for the reunion!”
