What you need to know about SculpSure

A new procedure to reduce fat cells that no exercise class can seem to help with.

You upped your workout routine and lowered your calorie count, but that stubborn belly fat is still not letting you fit into your cute summer shorts. It’s time to figure out a new way to rid yourself of those extra fat cells that no diet or exercise can seem to remove. Good news! SculpSure, one of the latest cutting edge procedures, is now available at Flores Dermatology.

SculpSure helps you safely reduce stubborn fat in problem areas such as the belly and love handles by using a laser that targets and heats fat cells under the skin.

How does it work?

A laser targets and heats fat cells under the skin raising the temperature of fat cells to a point that damages their structural integrity (high five for fat destruction!)

What about my skin?

The Contact Cooling™ system stays on throughout the treatment, which keeps the skin safe and comfortable.

What happens to the fat cells?

The damaged fat cells are removed naturally from your body through your lymphatic system. Once the fat cells are removed from your body they cannot regrow.

Coolscultping Basics

When we were kids, we made a wish when we blew out birthday candles. We wrote lists for Santa. Basically, we believed in miracles. Well now, thanks to Coolsculpting, we can believe in miracles again.

For anyone who has battled that last stubborn inch or two of flab, only to have it persist through all manner of healthy eating and exercise, Coolsculpting is a wish granted.

What is Coolscultpting?
An FDA-approved, trademarked process using cryolipolysis technology to remove fat cells, non-invasively.

How does that work?
The process of cryolipolysis freezes the layer of fat just below the skin in a manner that destroys the fat cells. They are broken up and flushed from the body naturally. (Whoa, awesome.)

How is this different than losing weight with diet and exercise?
With diet and exercise, we “lose weight” by shrinking the fat cells, but through cryolipolysis those fat cells drain from the body, so there are fewer of them overall.

Is this a surgical procedure?
Not at all. This is a completely non-invasive, 45-minute procedure that can be performed by your trusted medical esthetician.

Who is the ideal client, and where does it work best on the body?
Men and women within 30 pounds of their ideal weight but with pockets of fat (think: arm wiggle, muffin tops, inner and outer thighs, love handles, upper and lower abs, a layer of back flab, or a wattle beneath the chin). Basically, if you’re in relatively good shape, but want that extra definition that removing about an inch and a half of fat would provide.

Are the results permanent?
Pretty much. The fat cells don’t come back so this procedure does yield long-term results. (But remember that poor food choices and a sedentary lifestyle could make your existing fat cells plump up, and diminish the effects of the procedure.)

Cost and number of sessions needed?
That depends on a few factors: where your fat pockets are, the total area you want to have treated, and the amount of fat in each area.

Is there anything else I should know?
Sessions are performed at Flores Dermatology under the oversight of Dr. Flores by Olga Valencia.
If you’re curious (and we’re pretty sure you are), come out and meet others who’ve loved the results of CoolSculpting and get a firsthand look during a live demonstration of the procedure at our upcoming CoolEvent.

How to Wash Your Face

Washing your face, seems easy enough, right?

Well if you’re one of the many who complain about your skin texture or quality (acne, blackheads, dullness…so, like, everyone), then you will benefit from a Face Washing 101 with beyond complexion’s founder and resident skin expert, Olga Valencia. She has a few basics to share that will leave you thinking – “why didn’t I know that?” – and will help your skin get glowing.

Step 1: Start with a wet face, using warm (not too hot) water
That seems pretty explanatory, but I know there are a few of us who have been tired/in a rush/distracted and we (or is it just me?) slap cleanser on and start rubbing.

Take a little time; the prep is worth it. This first step removes some degree of dirt and particulate matter (nasty stuff in the air) and the warm water opens the pores to receive the cleanser.

Step 2: Choose the correct cleanser for your skin
Beware – some cleansers be harsh, y’all.

There are many, many factors to consider when caring for your skin. Just because you have one zit does not mean it’s time to unleash the full power of a heavy duty cleanser. Err on the side of gentle and seek the counsel of a good medical aesthetician to point you in the right direction. (With that in mind, beyond complexion created a line of cleansers to address the needs of different skin types. More on that later.)

Step 3: Start at the forehead, move down the side of the face…
Ok, this is where we drop some fresh knowledge on you. Here’s how you wash your face, as guided by Olga, beyond complexion’s skin-pert.

  • Start at forehead, move down to the side of the face (sideburn area), down to the jaw, but stop before getting to the chin
  • Now continue swirling cleanser into the cheeks and nose
  • And finally to the chin and gently around the mouth (if at all)
  • For healing and anti-inflammatory purposes, rinse off cleanser with really cold water

Why the this order? Why start at the forehead? Because the skin at the top of the face is tougher and the fresh swipe of cleanser should first be applied there because it needs more to penetrate. You also don’t want the more sensitive areas (like corners of the nose and around the mouth) to be the first hit. 

Which brings us to why the area around the mouth is last.  You may notice that the skin from the bottom of your nostrils to the the corners of your mouth can easily turn red, flake and/or become inflamed. In fact, since this area is so reactive, Olga advises not even applying heavy duty cleansers directly, and instead letting the cleanser gently move around this area while rinsing your face.

We’d love to know if this process works for you.  Try it and tell us what you think!
Drop us a note on Instagram or Facebook.

And if you’re like Goldilocks in search of the facial cleanser that’s juuuust right, might we suggest a few of beyond complexion’s in-house formulations, from the most gentle to the most potent:


Mandelic Acid 5+ Antioxidant Foam Cleanser with Green Tea

Our extra gentle foam cleanser with Green tea soothes skin as Mandelic acid brightens, exfoliates dead cells, and minimizes the appearance of pores. A powerful blend of antioxidants in a soothing cleanser designed to calm the skin and reclaim a youthful glow.




Mandelic Acid 5+ Cleanser with Green Tea Antioxidant

Multi-tasking formula helps reduce fine lines, blemishes and acne-causing bacteria. A cocktail for your skin: alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) is paired with hops, green tea to clean, clarify and rejuvenate skin all over the body. Hops brighten while the antioxidants in green tea sooth skin irritations. Mandelic acid minimizes the appearance of pores while also exfoliating and brightening skin. This potent combo leaves any spot on the body looking rejuvenated.




Micronized 10% BPO Cleanser + Scrub

This form of benzoyl peroxide minimizes irritation and clears acne-causing bacteria on contact. Specially milled USP-grade micronized benzoyl peroxide particles penetrate the skin faster. Benzoyl opens up pores, letting peroxide enter to clear out bacteria on contact.
