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 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!”

Let’s all be real, we want to look our best on the big day! Let’s start with one of the most important features, our face.

To all my brides to be, you’ve made it through the fun part of your engagement. It’s now time to start a wedding beauty regiment together! It is now the perfect excuse for a makeover (even if you are not a future bride) so that you can have the best hair, skin, and nails of your life as you make your way down the aisle.

Jb and I are obsessed with self-care. We love getting our teeth whitened, going to the gym together, doing face mask together before bed… BUT now we have been introduced to the amazing Hydrafacial treatment with an amazing team at CosmetiCare.

We are about eight months out to our big wedding day in Mexico where it is beyond humid.

Which means oily skin could be in effect…

We are now starting our wedding beauty regiment and I highly recommend this to all future brides and even grooms! Do these activities together, it helps relieve the stress from wedding planning and you can even make a date out of it!

CosmetiCare is our go-to Medispa to get all of our wedding prep needs. We trust their super sweet and certified team to prep us to be flawless when saying our, “I Do’s”

They have many non-surgical and surgical treatments for almost everything.

We had the pleasure of working with Sarah who has been an R.N, specializes in injectables, laser various skin treatments for over 12 years! This was Jb’s first facial ever. He was extremely excited.

What is the HydraFacial Platinum?

The HydraFacial Platinum is an incredible facial treatment package utilizing unique patented HydraFacial technology along with additional skin care methods. For those of you that are unfamiliar with the HydraFacial, it is an amazing facial rejuvenation treatment that cleanses, extracts, and hydrates. The HydraFacial Platinum is designed to maximize the entire HydraFacial experience by including pre and post facial enhancements.

You have to be careful at other places as they are imposters and say they have the Hydrafacial treatment but they call it Hydrofacial, Hydra Spa or Hydra Facial. THIS is NOT an actual HYDRAFACIAL!

This photo is after my treatment that took a little under an hr long.

It was AMAZING!

The first step was something that was very new to me and I was a little scared. Dermaplaning is where my entire face was shaved! Ladies, I highly recommend this as we actually have so much hair on our face it’s crazy and your makeup will now apply smoother than before. I was nervous because I thought your hair would grow back thicker, however that is a myth!

Here are more details about the Facial treatment straight from CostmetiCares website:

The HydraFacial Platinum treatment begins with a skin assessment and a detoxifying and cleansing lymphatic massage. This specialized massaging technique is designed to drain lymphatic fluids that have built up within the body. Lymphatic fluid buildup can increase the negative impacts of bodily toxins, aging, and other types of skin damage.  Often times dermaplaning is added to a HydraFacial Platinum treatment as well.

The detoxifying massage is then followed by the traditional HydraFacial procedure. During this process, the patented HydraFacial device gently exfoliates and resurfaces the facial skin. The device then proceeds to painlessly suck out debris from your pores while delivering hydrating moisturizers. Lastly, the HydraFacial treatment protects your skin with antioxidants and peptides that maximize your face’s vibrant glow.

One of our favorite parts was the High-Frequency tool. The tool kills off any bacteria. It was really cool!

YES, this is all the gunk that as in Jb’s face. We both had about the same amount. Can you believe that was in our face? I mean EW!!!! This makes me so grossed out I actually almost vomited.

Thank you, Sarah and the CosmetiCare team for prepping our skin for our special day to come! Check out our faces we are glowing!!! #Groomglow

You may have heard it already, but it’s very important to do plenty of research before choosing a plastic surgeon. If you’re looking for an Orange County plastic surgeon, in particular, you have a lot of choices. Orange County is home to multiple plastic surgery practices, and picking one isn’t always easy, especially for your first procedure.

But if you take the right steps, you can find a friendly and trustworthy surgeon who can walk you through the process and help make your vision a reality.

Talk to People in Orange County

One of your best sources of information is the people around you. If you have friends who have received plastic surgery in the past and loved their results, they may be able to refer you to their plastic surgeon. If not, you can simply ask people in the area or put out a message for recommendations on social media.

Choose an Orange County Plastic Surgeon with Experience

Plastic surgery boutiques open and close frequently in Southern California, so you’ll want to choose a practice that’s been established in Orange County for decades. An established practice will have an Orange County plastic surgeon who has seen hundreds of patients. They’ll have a more talented and experienced staff, so you can rest assured you’ll be in good hands.

Before choosing your surgeon, be sure to investigate their background as well. Most doctors won’t be shy about their education, their experience, and their accolades. If possible, locate a surgeon who has won awards in Orange County, or a surgeon who is affiliated with, or has experience working in, a highly rated hospital.

It’s important to know that some doctors may refer to themselves as “surgeons,” but they aren’t always qualified to do any real surgical procedures, such as a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, or a full body lift. This is why it’s important to do your research! Furthermore, it’s usually best to find a surgeon who has expertise in the type of plastic surgery you are interested in. For example, if you’re looking for rhinoplasty, it’s in your best interest to work with a surgeon who has years of experience performing rhinoplasty procedures.

Choose a Practice with a Caring Staff

It isn’t just the doctor who will be providing you with care. You’ll spend a great deal of time interacting with the staff, whether they are helping you book an appointment or helping you recover after a procedure. You need a team who truly cares about their patients.

One of the best ways to learn about a practice’s staff is to meet them yourself! Most plastic surgeons offer consultations with their team, which gives you the opportunity to meet the staff in person. It also gives you the opportunity to see their office. Make sure the premises are clean, comfortable, and inviting.

Take Your Time

Choosing an Orange County plastic surgeon is an important decision. Take your time, and don’t hesitate to reach out to multiple practices to ask questions.

NEWPORT BEACH, CALIF. (February 19, 2019) – Dr. Brian Reagan, a board certified plastic surgeon, is combining new technologies to offer the most effective minimally invasive facial treatments available for patients at CosmetiCare, a plastic surgery center and MedSpa in Orange County, CA.  As the demand for less invasive aesthetic procedures continues to grow, Dr. Reagan and CosmetiCare are proud to be able to offer new solutions for patients who don’t want to go under the knife.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the number of minimally invasive cosmetic procedures has grown nearly 200 percent since 2000, with no indication of slowing down.  “Office-based procedures that require less downtime are appealing to patients for many reasons,” says Dr. Reagan. “With new technology, our office-based procedures can effectively address the three main issues patients experience as they age: textural changes, loss of volume, and skin laxity.”

Focusing on the face, Dr. Reagan can improve skin texture with RF microneedling (namely Fractora and Morpheus8), improve skin laxity with FaceTite and restore facial volume using the patient’s own fat with intelliFat and AquiCell.

Many patients would like the benefits of a facelift, but aren’t quite ready for the procedure. Knowing this, Dr. Reagan advocated for a solution for these patients at CosmetiCare.

“FaceTite by InMode is a perfect option for patients who want to achieve a more youthful appearance without an invasive procedure,” says Dr. Reagan.  “With FaceTite, we are able to tighten the skin using radiofrequency energy within the dermis layer of the skin. We can provide the most skin tightening without a facelift using FaceTite.”

So how does FaceTite work? In short, FaceTite uses radio-frequency assisted lipolysis (RFAL) and a small, hand-held device that passes radiofrequency energy through the skin, making only a few minimal markings that heal in a matter of days.  The hand-held device is calibrated and controlled by the surgeon so that only an appropriate amount of heat is applied, and the skin is not damaged. The entire FaceTite procedure can take less than 40 minutes.

Combining FaceTite with Fractora and Morpheus8 technology, known as EmbraceRF, helps to bridge the gap between fractional lasers and surgical procedures.  The RF microneedling devices from InMode provide improvement in skin complexion, reduction in skin irregularities and skin restoration. Again, harnessing the power of radio frequency, patients can now receive the ultimate non-invasive skin renovation without surgery.

Lastly, with intelliFat kits, Dr. Reagan can precisely harvest, process and transfer fat for patients to areas that they have experienced volume loss.  The latest in fat transfer technology provides more predictable results and fat that lasts longer.

“Patients can opt to receive all of these procedures under local anesthetic, which is a huge selling point for some,” says Dr. Reagan. “The fear of general anesthesia can be a deterrent for patients, but a procedure under local anesthetic can seem less scary.”

CosmetiCare in Orange County is proud to offer FaceTite, BodyTite, Fractora and Morpheus8 procedures, using devices by InMode, a global provider of energy-based, minimally invasive aesthetic solutions.  Combining these procedures with intelliFat, intelligent low volume fat transfer, is providing outstanding results.

“I’ve been practicing plastic surgery for 20 years and I believe the holy grail of facial rejuvenation is achieving significant rejuvenation results in a minimally invasive way with minimal recovery time,” says Dr. Reagan.

Dr. Reagan did his surgical training at Cornell Medical College/The New York Hospital, conducting wound care research that was awarded funding from the National Institute of Health (NIH).  At the University of Texas at Southwestern in Dallas, considered by many to be the top plastic surgery program in the country, Dr. Reagan trained with recognized world experts in facial rejuvenation, rhinoplasty, and body contouring.  He is a highly-recommended plastic surgeon and is well-known in the local medical community.
