If your skin looks dull, dry and lackluster, it’s probably because it’s time to remove a layer of dead cells. At Lipolaser of South Jersey, we offer a variety of skin rejuvenation treatments to help you exfoliate your skin. This process can help you to get smooth, soft skin that is beautifully colored.

Alternatively, not exfoliating can allow dead skin to pile up unevenly on the surface of your skin leading to many problems. It is best to remove the dry skin in order to get the most flawless appearance possible.

Some of the main benefits of removing dead skin with skin rejuvenation include:

  • Giving you soft skin that feels extremely smooth and is beautiful
  • Helping to rejuvenate skin so it remains looking young and bright by helping to reduce the look of wrinkles and other age lines on your face
  • Helping to keep skin flawless and avoid breakouts, which may include whiteheads, blackheads, etc.
  • Allowing for a nice, close shave that will remove much more hair and will leave you feeling smoother for longer
  • Allowing high quality skin care products to penetrate skin deeper and to be more effective
  • Making skin a beautiful, even color that is consistent
  • Allowing for a more beautiful, even tan without being hindered by dead skin

Dry skin is a condition that can affect anyone, regardless of age or health. Dry skin can be very painful and uncomfortable and chronic dry skin can often be difficult to treat. Some of the most common symptoms associated with dry skin include:

  • Itchy skin that isn't soothed by scratching
  • Flaky skin or a lot of dead skin
  • Patches of red, scaly skin
  • Bleeding skin or skin with many bumps
  • Skin that is damaged and has many imperfections

Unfortunately, dry skin can remain a problem for extended periods of time, especially if all layers of the skin are affected. Some preventative actions that you can take to avoid getting dry skin include:

  • Taking warm showers instead of hot baths or showers
  • Not over-washing your hands or skin
  • Staying well hydrated by drinking plenty of water and avoiding caffeinated beverages
  • Avoiding scratching or picking at skin

If your attempts at preventing dry skin have been unsuccessful, you can treat the condition with the following:

  • Apply an alcohol free moisturizer after you shower and after washing your hands or face
  • Avoid shaving over dry skin areas
  • Use a humidifier to keep the moisture in skin

No one looks forward to the dimpled and uneven appearance of cellulite, but it is the result of the body’s natural fat storage system, so it can be very difficult to avoid. Our Marlton cellulite treatment specialists know that there are several factors that can make cellulite less visible, however.  Here are some steps you can take to reduce the appearance of cellulite:

1.     Reduce Fluid Retention - Your fat cells absorb excess fluid from surrounding tissues in addition to storing fat. Eliminating excess fluid from the body helps keep the fat cells from growing and becoming more apparent. To reduce excess fluids, reduce salt intake and eat more foods that contain natural diuretics, including cranberries, celery, fennel, and asparagus.

2.     Burn Fat - The most obvious way to reduce the appearance of cellulite is to burn fat stored in the fat cells. By careful diet and exercise, it is possible to lose about 2 pounds of fat per week. Increasing your intake of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) has been shown to be effective in triggering release of fat stored in the fat cells.

3.     Stay Hydrated - Keeping your skin hydrated and smooth takes more than just drinking water. It is important to include healthy fats from fish, nuts and seeds in order to keep the water in the skin cells, instead of the fat cells.

4.     Balance Estrogen Levels - Eating a diet high in phytoestrogens (plant-based estrogens) can have a significant impact in creating estrogen balance. Foods like flaxseed, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and Brussels sprouts are great choices.

By following these four rules you can make a difference in the appearance of your cellulite, but it will still be present. Non-invasive cellulite treatment is another often more efficient and cost effective way to reduce cellulite.

If you struggle with the appearance of your cellulite, contact LipoLaser of South Jersey at (856) 334-1764 to schedule a consultation today. Our Marlton cellulite treatment experts can help determine the right treatment for your cellulite.

If you are looking for the best way to eliminate stubborn fat that doesn’t respond to diet and exercise, you have probably looked into liposuction. Although liposuction offers results, many people have concerns about the risks of this invasive procedure and would prefer a holistic and non-surgical method for body sculpting. Fortunately, LipoLaser treatments are a great alternative to liposuction surgery.

During traditional liposuction surgery, the patient is placed under general anesthesia. Incisions are made at various sites where a device called a cannula is inserted. Fat cells are sucked out of the body through the cannula. Once the liposuction is complete, the incisions may be closed or drain tubes may be placed. Recovery from liposuction surgery varies depending on the extent of the fat removal. Patients should expect bruising, swelling and soreness that can last several weeks.

Unlike liposuction, LipoLaser treatments are non-surgical and non-invasive. Rather than removing the fat cells through suction, LipoLaser treatment uses low level lasers to direct energy to the fat cells and shrinks them. Low level lasers do not cause thermal tissue damage, but disrupts the structure of the fat cells so that the contents are released and can be carried away through normal bodily functions.

If you live in Mt. Laurel or any surrounding area and you want to try body sculpting with LipoLaser, call LipoLaser of South Jersey at (856) 334-1764 today.

Having cellulite doesn't necessarily mean that you are overweight. Cellulite is simply normal fat deposits that have a rippled appearance that is often less than desirable. Many people want to reduce the cellulite on their bodies because of the distinct appearance of it. Not everyone experiences the same amount of cellulite and there are many factors that increase the chances of having more cellulite on your body. These factors include:

  • Family history of cellulite
  • Poor diet
  • High level of body fat
  • Elasticity of the skin
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Slow metabolism
  • Age

Although cellulite is normal, there are things that you can do to help prevent the amount of cellulite on your body. Preventative measures that you can take to help reduce the amount of cellulite that you have include:

  • Eating a clean and healthy diet
  • Eating more fruits and vegetables
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Stay active
  • Use a body brush on high cellulite areas
  • Cut down on artificial foods and chemicals

Even when following steps to help prevent the amount of cellulite on your body, cellulite will still be present. There are treatment options for cellulite reduction on your body that can drastically improve the appearance of cellulite. Vela Shape treatment is an effective cellulite reduction treatment and is also cost effective. The VelaShape III is FDA approved and uses radio frequency technology to reduce the cell size. This treatment helps to tighten loose skin and smooth the rippled appearance of the cellulite, dramatically improving the appearance of cellulite.

If you have unwanted cellulite on your body, contact LipoLaser of South Jersey at (856) 334-1764 to schedule a consultation today. Our Mt Laurel cellulite reduction experts can help determine the right treatment for your cellulite.

If you’re struggling to lose that last love handle or to tone up those problem areas on your thighs or arms but diet and exercise just don’t seem to be working, you might be considering liposuction. Liposuction has been a standard procedure for this type of fat management for a long time, but if you're not interested or comfortable with a surgical procedure, there are also new ways to go about sculpting your body the way you want it. LipoLaser of Cherry Hill offers a wide variety of sculpting and toning alternatives to liposuction, including:

  • Venus legacy (a heat-based procedure that uses radio waves and magnetic fields to stimulate your body's healing response)
  • Zerona laser (light energy that penetrates into the subcutaneous fat and causes fat cells to open and “leak” into your body to be naturally excreted)
  • Lapex 2000 (a laser procedure similar to the Zerona and using laser energy)
  • Fat Terminator and Ultrasonic Cavitation (uses 200 laser diodes emitting two light frequencies to release fat from surface layers and then sound waves to target the deeper fat layers)
  • Infrared sauna (with temperatures up to 135 degrees, you can melt away fat by burning 400-500 calories per session and detoxifying your body at the same time)
  • VelaShape III (uses radio frequency and LED light to melt away cellulite and vacuum/suction to mobilize released fat

Our experienced staff at LipoLaser can utilize single treatments or a combination of procedures to help you achieve optimal results.

If you live in Cherry Hill and you're ready to explore the exciting options of non-surgical fat loss with liposuction alternatives, call LipoLaser of South Jersey today at (856) 334-1764 to speak with one of our experienced staff members.

Cellulite is a frustrating fact of life for millions of Americans. Ideas about how to get rid of the stubborn condition are everywhere, but eliminating cellulite remains difficult and results are often elusive. In fact, there is only one FDA approved system available to Cherry Hill residents for cellulite removal: the VelaShape III body contouring system.

Because cellulite is a result of the expansion of natural fat cells in your body, it can never be fully eliminated. Weight loss may improve the appearance of cellulite for some, but it often isn’t enough to eliminate the visible signs. While exercise, creams, and specialized massage have all been used for cellulite removal, there is little evidence that any of these treatments are effective. Cosmetic surgery offers results, but patients must undergo invasive surgery and endure the risks, scars, long recovery, and high cost of treatment.

The VelaShape III system uses a combination of three technologies to smooth dimpled skin caused by cellulite:

  • Radio waves - Radio frequency waves increase the metabolism of deep subcutaneous fat to reduce the size of fat cells.
  • Light waves - Using an LED light, the system increases blood flow and collagen production.
  • Vacuum/suction -  This helps mobilize the released fat so your body can eliminate it through natural processes.

To find out more about how VelaShape III can significantly reduce cellulite for Cherry Hill residents, call LipoLaser of South Jersey today at (856) 334-1764 to schedule your appointment.
