Cellulite ReductionNo matter how well you take care of yourself, even the most committed exercise regimen may not spare you from the appearance of cellulite. Cellulite reduction is a common goal for people in the Marlton area, but surgery involves risks and downtime that probably aren’t worth it. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to achieve cellulite reduction without surgery.

Non-Surgical Cellulite Reduction

Cellulite is a problem for about 8 out of 10 women in the U.S., and one of the reasons it is so prevalent is because there are multiple causes. Cellulite has been linked to genetics, hormones, weight, lifestyle, and toxins. There is nothing you can do to change your genetics, and you often can’t control your hormones, either. You can, however, reduce your cellulite by focusing on getting plenty of exercise, eating a healthy diet, and eliminating toxins by:

  • Including lycopene-rich tomatoes in your diet
  • Dry brushing with coconut oil
  • Increasing water intake
  • Using apple cider vinegar on the skin
  • Taking ginkgo biloba
  • Consuming green tea

Even eliminating toxins may not help with cellulite that is caused by genetics or hormonal factors, but non-surgical treatments are available that can make a real difference. If you would like to find out more about LipoLaser Body Sculpting, please contact LipoLaser of South Jersey at 856-334-1764 to speak with one of our clinicians. We serve Marlton, Cherry Hill, Mt. Laurel and the surrounding areas of New Jersey.

Is LipoLaser better than plastic surgery?Everyone wants a body that appears young, confident, and toned, but genetics, lifestyle, and aging can conspire against even our best efforts. Many patients turn to plastic surgery to achieve the look they desire, but increasing numbers are opting for the noninvasive alternatives provided by today’s LipoLaser body sculpting techniques.

Patients who choose LipoLaser instead of plastic surgery enjoy a number of benefits. Unlike plastic surgery, LipoLaser is completely noninvasive.

  • There are no incisions
  • There’s no anesthesia.
  • There’s no lengthy recovery period.
  • There’s no bruising.
  • And with LipoLaser, you can be in and out of our office within an hour or two.

While plastic surgeons are skilled medical professionals, there’s no getting around the fact that cosmetic surgery is still surgery. Plastic surgery relies on traumatic techniques: A surgeon makes an incision, physically removes tissue from the body, and sutures the wound shut. LipoLaser, on the other hand, makes use of laser energy, which can penetrate through the skin and reach the subcutaneous layers of fat that cause problematic bulges. It’s not uncommon for our patients to lose anywhere from half an inch to a full inch from their waists in just one visit! And because there’s no recovery time, the results are almost instant.

If you’re ready to learn how body sculpting can help you take inches off your frame and years off your appearance, please contact LipoLaser of South Jersey at 856-334-1764 to speak with one of our Marlton Mt. Laurel LipoLaser clinicians.

Skin Care Rejuvenation Cherry HillMany consumers are confused by sunscreen labels and with good reason. UVA, UVB, SPF? Who can keep all those straight? And do you know what they actually mean and what your sunscreen is actually protecting you from?

In a survey conducted by a team at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, 43 percent of respondents understood what SPF meant and few could identify how well sunscreen protected from skin aging (7 percent), sunburn (23 percent), and skin cancer (38 percent).

It is important to understand your sunscreen labels and use sunscreen daily, not just when you take a trip to the beach.

  • SPF stands for sun protection factor. It is an indication of how long it will take you to burn. So if you usually develop a burn in 10 minutes, SPF 30 will allow you to stay out for 300 minutes before you develop a burn. Most people need to reapply every two hours.
  • UVA is ultraviolet radiation that penetrates the skin more deeply than UVB. UVA damage is associated with skin aging and wrinkling and damages skin cells, which can lead to skin cancer. 
  • UVB is ultraviolet radiation that is responsible for sunburn. It damages the skin’s superficial layers and plays a key role in the development of skin cancer.

To properly protect yourself with sunscreen, you should choose one with an SPF of 15 or higher. SPF 15 protects you from 93 percent of the sun’s UVB rays, and SPF 50 will protect you from 98 percent of the sun’s UVB rays. For protection against UVA rays, make sure your sunscreen is labeled multi spectrum, broad spectrum or UVA/UVB protection.

One of the latest trends hitting the internet is #sunburnart. And it is exactly what it sounds like. People are strategically covering areas of skin and exposing others to the summer sun to create art on their skin when they get sunburned.#sunburnart skin care LipoLaser of South Jersey

Unlike social media trends that are relatively harmless, like the ice bucket challenge, this trend is very dangerous. In fact, the Skin Cancer Foundation actually released a statement this month strongly advising the public to avoid sunburns at all times, saying:

“A sunburn is not only painful – it’s dangerous, and comes with consequences. Sunburns cause DNA damage to the skin, accelerate skin aging, and increase your lifetime skin cancer risk.  In fact, sustaining five or more sunburns in youth increases lifetime melanoma risk by 80 percent. On average, a person’s risk for melanoma doubles if he or she has had more than five sunburns. “

Ultimately, the risk of getting skin cancer is not worth the moment of internet fame generated by your sunburn art. Always protect your skin from the sun by:

  • Seeking shade
  • Covering up with clothing and a hat
  • Wearing UV blocking sunglasses
  • Applying sunscreen daily

Martlon fat lossSummertime brings longer days and warmer temperature. But for some it also brings anxiety about more revealing clothes. If you are still looking to shed a few pounds this summer and tone up your body to look lean and healthy try these five tips for fat loss:

  1. Eat more fiber. It’s not just good for your digestive system. More fiber in your diet can lower blood pressure and reduce your risk for certain cancers.
  2. Drink more water. Keeping yourself well hydrated will not only give your skin a healthier glow, it will also curb your appetite. We often think we are hungry when in fact, we just need a little more hydration.
  3. Get your beauty rest. Depriving yourself of sleep can lead to weight gain by altering hormone levels that affect appetite and changing the way our bodies process and store carbs. Try to get eight hours each night.
  4. Stay active. Summer is the perfect time to start up your active routine if you’ve been spending a little too much time binging on Netflix. Even a brisk walk a few times a week can make a huge difference for your overall health and your waistline.
  5. See the doctor. Don’t forget that regular health exams can be the key to early diagnosis of health problems that could be holding you back.

At LipoLaser of South Jersey, our team is dedicated to helping our patients find their healthiest selves. Call (856) 334-1764 today for your fat loss consultation with one of our experienced team members. We welcome patients from Marlton, Cherry Hill, Mt. Laurel and throughout South Jersey.

Martlon facelift alternativesFacial fillers have become increasingly popular among individuals who wish to enhance their appearance. But a new report from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns that these fillers can cause serious harm when accidentally injected into the blood vessels of the face. If you’d like to enjoy fewer wrinkles and firmer skin without the risks associated with facial fillers, please contact LipoLaser of South Jersey today at (856) 334-1764 to schedule your Marlton facelift consultation to discuss non-invasive treatment options.

A recent analysis by the FDA finds that facial fillers, when injected into the bloodstream, can block vessels and reduce the blood supply to vital tissue. The injectable fillers can even travel to other parts of the body through the bloodstream and cause vision problems, blindness, stroke, or even death of the skin and underlying tissue.

At LipoLaser of South Jersey, we are pleased to offer the Microcurrent Natural Facelift, a revolutionary treatment that can take up to ten years off your appearance without the hazards associated with fillers or surgery. Through gentle electric stimulation, we stimulate the muscles of the face to

●Tighten your facial appearance

●Improve collagen production and elasticity

●Reduce the appearance of wrinkles

●Improve blood circulation

Our Marlton patients find that this approach delivers the results they desire without the risk of skin damage. If you’re ready to learn more about safer alternatives to facial fillers, please contact LipoLaser of South Jersey at (856) 334-1764 to speak with one of our Marlton facelift experts.

Marlton Fat LossFat loss is a common goal for both men and women in Marlton and beyond. Body Sculpting with LipoLaser Treatment, along with diet and exercise, can help you reach your goals. While LipoLaser Treatment is less invasive, less costly, and requires less recovery than cosmetic surgery, many people can make great strides toward fat loss by following a healthy lifestyle and diet.

Fat Loss Tips       

Several recent studies have shown specific benefits for fat loss and wellness. Here are some tips based on recent findings:

  • Don’t starve yourself. Instead, eat plenty of nutrient rich fruits and vegetables to keep you feeling satisfied all day. Restricting food can also have disastrous effects on your metabolism, making it even harder to lose fat.
  • Rest and relax. A Finnish study of identical twins showed that getting plenty of sleep and keeping stress down was key to keeping less fat.
  • Add lean protein. Protein found in nuts, eggs and lean meats, in conjunction with exercise can greatly increase calories burned during your workout.
  • Stand up. Sitting for extended periods of time can be one of the most dangerous activities. If you have to sit for work, be sure to take walks throughout the day on your breaks.
  • Eat your breakfast. People who skip breakfast are 4.5 times more likely to be obese, in fact, one study showed that a larger breakfast with smaller meals later in the day helped reduce weight gain by nearly half.
  • Drink coffee or tea. Small amounts of caffeine can boost the metabolism by as much as 8 percent, and tea has antioxidants that can push that boost even higher, especially green tea.
  • Up your fiber intake. Fiber is the key to healthy digestion and it has huge impacts on your metabolism, helping burn fat and keeping your weight stable.

For the best results, combine these healthy habits with a custom treatment plan designed to meet your specific fat loss goals.
