BOTOX and Dermal Fillers in Cherry HillAt LipoLaser of South Jersey, we offer a range of injectable facial rejuvenation treatments. We do this because we understand that our Cherry Hill-area residents have a range of rejuvenation needs, and we want to be able to meet all of those needs. As a result, you have a lot of choices when you visit our office. Often, that choice comes down to BOTOX® or dermal fillers.

BOTOX® and dermal fillers are designed to achieve similar goals: rejuvenating your facial appearance and making you look younger and more vibrant. But they reach the same place by going different routes.

BOTOX® works by blocking the muscles in your face from receiving contraction signals sent by your brain. When your muscles don't contract, wrinkles and creases don't develop. Your facial muscles relax, and your skin smoothes out. It's great for use on your forehead and cheeks.

Dermal fillers, by contrast, work by introducing hyaluronic acids underneath your skin. Hyaluronic acids are naturally occurring materials that your body produces to keep your skin moisturized and healthy. But the production of these acids can sometimes slow as we age.

Dermal fillers replenish your store of hyaluronic acids. In doing so, dermal fillers – such as Kybella®  and Restylane® - can plump up and fill out targeted areas of your face. For example, Kybella® is an FDA-approved non-surgical treatment for a double chin, while Restylane® can eliminate fine lines and creases around your nose and mouth.

As you can see, you have a number of facial rejuvenation options. Our staff and doctors will help you find the treatment that's right for you and your specific goals.

If you live in or around Cherry Hill, New Jersey and you have questions about dermal fillers or our other treatments, please call LipoLaser of South Jersey today at 856-983-3600 for a consultation and examination.

Cherry Hill laser hair removalOne of our most popular treatments is laser hair removal. We hear the same story all the time – a Cherry Hill-area resident is simply not satisfied with unwanted facial or body hair, and they want it removed as quickly and as painlessly as possible.

What they also make clear is that they want the hair to stay gone. And this makes sense – after all, no one wants to undergo a laser hair removal treatment, enjoy the smooth look that results and then see the unwanted hair come back in a matter of months.

The great news is that LipoLaser of South Jersey's laser hair removal treatments are permanent. We use an advanced, precision-engineered Cutera xeo® laser in our hair removal treatments. This layer doesn't just remove visible hair – instead, it targets hair at the follicles, removing what are in essence the “roots” of the hair.

You can think of the process as something similar to removing weeds from your garden. If you just pull out the visible weeds and leave the roots intact, the weeds will just grow back. But when you pull up the roots, the weeds are gone for good.

And when we remove the follicles of your unwanted hair, we ensure it won't grow back – ever. You can go about your life confident in your ability to wear a bathing suit or shorts because you know you'll look your best.

If you live in or around Cherry Hill, New Jersey and you're looking for a permanent laser hair removal solution, please call LipoLaser of South Jersey today at 856-983-3600 for a consultation and examination.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments - Cherry Hill skin rejuvenationThere's no doubt that the signs of age and wear are most prominent and most unsightly when they appear on your face. Wrinkles, creases, fine lines, age spots – these can all make you seem prematurely aged and fatigued. Fortunately, facial skin rejuvenation from LipoLaser of South Jersey can reverse the signs of aging for our Cherry Hill-area patients.

One of your best skin rejuvenation options is platelet rich plasma (or PRP) treatments. It's a new treatment that boasts impressive potential to effect an extraordinary change in your facial appearance.

PRP treatments are actually pretty simple. We will draw a small vial of blood from your body. Then, we spin that vial in a high-speed centrifuge. This separates the blood into two different substances, one of which is plasma, rich in platelets. These platelets are cells in your blood that act as healing and rejuvenating agents – platelets are crucial to the clotting process, and they're the reasons you don't bleed to death from every little cut.

We then take this platelet-rich plasma and inject it into the treatment area. This treatment can address:

  • Sagging skin
  • Dark circles around the eyes
  • Fine lines and creases around the mouth, nose and eyes
  • A dull, unhealthy skin tone

Many patients prefer PRP treatments because it's a natural treatment – no foreign bodies or chemicals are introduced to your body. Instead, we use your own supply of platelets and plasma to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

If you live in or around Cherry Hill, New Jersey and you want to know more about the skin rejuvenation that can be achieved with platelet-rich plasma treatments, please call LipoLaser of South Jersey today at 856-983-3600 for a consultation and examination.

Microneedling skin results in New JerseyUpon learning about microneedling, many of our Cherry Hill-area patients express some curiosity. What exactly is “microneedling,” after all? Is it painful – it sounds like it might be painful? And what can it do for me?

Well, microneedling is totally safe and does not cause any significant discomfort, so rest easy on that account. But what can microneedling do for you? That's a much more interesting – and exciting – question.

Microneedling uses a device the size of a pen to inject a series of tiny, nearly microscopic needle points into a facial treatment area. These injections are painless, but they stimulate your body's natural healing responses, flooding the area with collagen and other restorative substances.

This treatment is exceptionally useful at treating a range of common cosmetic concerns, including:

  • Acne and acne scars
  • Sagging skin
  • Large pores
  • Wrinkles
  • Stretch marks

As you can see, microneedling can accomplish rather extraordinary things. We're happy to talk to you about microneedling and whether it's right for you.

If you live in or around Cherry Hill, New Jersey and you have questions about microneedling, please call LipoLaser of South Jersey today at 856-983-3600

What to expect from LipoLaser in NJAt LipoLaser of South Jersey, we believe in helping all of our patients gain a comprehensive understanding of the procedure they are about to undergo. This is crucial to a successful surgical experience. LipoLaser is no exception.

One of the crucial components of the surgical process is setting realistic expectations. We want to help you know what to expect when it comes to LipoLaser – this will help you make informed decisions, and avoid disappointment.

We know LipoLaser can effect an extraordinary change in the shape of your body by eliminating fat cells and combining the treatments with other procedures. But it's important to understand that LipoLaser is not a weight loss procedure – it will not melt away the pounds or serve as an alternative to diet or exercise.

Instead, LipoLaser is a body contouring procedure that is designed to help you remove stubborn deposits of fat that don't respond to diet and exercise. Exactly how much fat can be removed and how your body will look after the procedure will depend on a number of factors specific to you, including your body and skin type.

We will conduct a thorough evaluation and consultation to determine what you can expect LipoLaser technology to achieve for you. We will always be honest and transparent about your procedure so that you can make the right decisions for you.

If you live in or around Cherry Hill, New Jersey, please call us today at 856-983-3600 to schedule a LipoLaser consultation and examination.

Cherry Hill BOTOX CosmeticThe facts are clear: BOTOX® Cosmetic is quite safe when administered by experienced, trained medical personnel. Unfortunately, there are a lot of people out there who are no more ethical than they are experienced, and when they administer BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments to Cherry Hill-residents looking for high-quality facial rejuvenation, the patient pays the price.

Here are three signs you've gotten a bad BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment:

  • You're experiencing pain, fever or other adverse reactions for some time after getting a shot. A measure of soreness and redness is to be expected, but high-quality materials injected properly by a well-trained professional should not cause painful, long-term side effects.
  • Significant – and unsightly – changes in your brow or around your mouth. In cases of bad BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments, patients often notice drooping around their eyebrows or their mouth. These problems aren't permanent, but they can be inconvenient while they're happening.
  • You simply don't look natural. BOTOX® Cosmetic should make you look younger and more energetic, but it shouldn't make your face look like it belongs to a mannequin, and it shouldn't draw attention to yourself. You should look like you – just a youthful, vital you.

How do you avoid these and other effects of bad BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments? Carefully evaluate the individual who will be administering your treatment. Only choose skilled, experienced medical professionals. Don't just choose the cheapest option. And don't attend so-called “BOTOX® Parties” where dozens of attendees are injected at the same time.

If you live in the Cherry Hill, New Jersey area and you want a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment from someone you know you can trust, please call LipoLaser of South Jersey today at 856-983-3600 for a consultation.

Cherry Hill LipoLaser fat reductionAt LipoLaser of South Jersey, we always strive to offer advanced, innovative treatments that provide our Cherry Hill-area patients exciting cosmetic solutions. This does mean that our patients often have questions about our treatments. And that's great – we welcome questions, especially about our amazing LipoLaser fat reduction treatment.

The most popular question is the simplest – how does LipoLaser work? And is it effective?

LipoLaser uses a safe, cold energy laser beam. It safely penetrates your skin and targets the subcutaneous fat cells that are so noticeable and unsightly. The laser stimulates the beginning of a process that results in the fat cells releasing a significant amount of material, which your body then uses for energy.

This process reduces the size of your fat cells by nearly half, shrinking your waistline and eliminating cellulite. During a 30-40 minute treatment, LipoLaser can cause the release of between 40 and 60 grams of fat. All of the material released from your fat cells is naturally absorbed by your body, and what's left over is excreted by your normal waste processes. The entire elimination process is completely normal and natural.

We understand you likely still have questions about LipoLaser technology and what it can achieve for you. We look forward to answering those questions at a consultation and examination.

If you're looking to remove unsightly fat in the Cherry Hill, New Jersey area, LipoLaser is an exciting solution. Please call LipoLaser of South Jersey today at 856-983-3600 to learn more.

Venus freeze skin tightening in Cherry Hill NJ

If you're a Cherry Hill-area resident considering Venus Freeze, it's likely because you've heard good things about skin tightening treatments. But you might be on the fence about such a treatment. You might be looking for a good reason to undergo skin tightening.

Here are four good reasons:

  • Skin tightening can help you look younger. As we age, our skin naturally sags, especially around the face. As such, loose skin has become associated with age and fatigue. Skin tightening can revitalize your appearance and make you look dramatically younger.
  • Venus Freeze can reduce cellulite, which is a problem a lot of people deal with. Cellulite seems to persist no matter which cream or lotion you use. Skin tightening treatments represent a wonderful solution.
  • These Venus Freeze skin tightening treatments can contour and tighten the skin on your abdominal region, increasing your self-confidence and allowing you to enjoy the sun in a belly-baring swimsuit.
  • Finally, our skin tightening treatments can help craft a sleeker, more contoured facial appearance, especially around your jaw and cheekbones. This is a priority for many patients, and Venus Freeze can help you achieve it.

Is LipoLaser's skin tightening treatment right for you? We're confident that it can be if any of the above considerations are intriguing to you. The only way to know for sure is to arrange a consultation with our physicians.

If you live in or around Cherry Hill, New Jersey and you have questions about Venus Freeze skin tightening, please call LipoLaser of South Jersey today at (856) 983-3600 for a consultation and examination.

Results-for-radio-frequency-facial-tightening

Loose, sagging skin is a common aesthetic concern many people experience at some point in their lives. Sometimes loose skin is the natural result of age. Sometimes, it's an unfortunate side effect of the generally positive fact of losing a great deal of weight. Either way, it can make you feel uncomfortable and self-conscious.

Fortunately, LipoLaser of South Jersey offers a solution in the form of radio frequency skin tightening. This non-surgical, non-invasive procedure can tighten loose, sagging skin without requiring any recovery time or missed work.

During a radio frequency treatment, we use a special device to deliver safe, precisely calibrated radio frequency waves directly onto your skin. These waves penetrate below the surface layer of your skin into the deeper layers, affecting the fundamental structure of your skin. This results in a tightening of your skin's structure, but no damage to the surface.

And a radio frequency skin tightening treatment can achieve this remarkable goal without causing any pain or discomfort. These treatments are usually used to treat sagging facial skin, remove jowls or reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

If you live in or around Mt. Laurel, New Jersey and you have questions about radio frequency skin tightening, please call LipoLaser of South Jersey today at 856-983-3600 to arrange a consultation
