"Amazing Spa and Services! - I have done a dermaplane and facial combo for years but Beyond Beautiful and Sara in specific are amazing! Dermaplaning takes off all of the dead surface skin and the hydro facial cleans your skin To perfection. It feels and looks amazing afterwards. Dr. Vu does is spectacular with Botox, natural but smooth. I would highly recommend."- T. / RealSelf / Aug 13, 2020
"I went to Beyond Beautiful for PicoSure laser treatments for my hyperpigmentation from years and years of acne. I was nervous because I knew the negative effects lasers can have on ethnic skin. However, Sarah was very thorough with her explanations and treatment plan. She knows what she is doing and it made it that much easier to trust her. She also has had experience with doing laser treatments on asian skin tones. The laser itself was not painful. Numbing cream is applied for 15-30 minutes prior to the laser. Your face is red afterwards for about 30 minutes, but otherwise no huge downtime like other lasers. I was able to go about my day as normal the day of. I started seeing results within 3-4 weeks and could see my hyperpigmentation fading well! Overall, I am happy with my treatment and Sarah and will be getting more treatments in the future from her!"- B.H. / Google / Aug 12, 2020
"I had my ZO 3 step peels earlier this year- one in January and the 2nd in February. Sarah did such an awesome job. It was not painful at all- there is a fan you can hold to keep the cool air on your face. Sarah talked me through the process and the aftercare. There was no peeling for almost 3 days. It started peeling around my chin and mouth, then the 4th day it started working its way up my face. The peeling was not painful and was completely gone after about the 6th day. My face was refreshed and had new pink skin. If you are considering this peel I highly recommend! It is worth the money and so easy. Sarah can answer all your questions and makes herself available if you have questions throughout the process. I will be doing another one this winter!"- K.C. / Google / Aug 12, 2020
"The most amazing thing about this procedure is that it does not alter how I look and no one knew anything was done - The process was so easy and Dr. Ho and staff were kind, friendly and helpful. I had this procedure done by Dr. Ho about 10 years ago and it was time for a touch-up. The most amazing thing about this procedure is that it does not alter how I look and no one knew anything was done. I just looked fresher and less hagged-out and tired. I would recommend this procedure to anyone who wanted to look a bit fresher and happier."- D. / RealSelf / Jun 29, 2020
Am I a Candidate for Liposuction
Liposuction is a great procedure for men and women who are at a healthy weight but have pesky areas of fat that are difficult to rid with exercise and diet. Individuals contemplating liposuction should have good skin laxity because liposuction is not a treatment for loose or sagging skin. It is also important to realize that liposuction is not an answer to losing weight. Women having liposuction should be past pregnancies as this could compromise the results. During your consult for surgery, we will discuss the treatment itself, as well as set realistic expectations for your results.
How is Liposuction Performed?
This treatment is completed as an outpatient procedure using general anesthesia. A very small incision is made in the skin where a cannula will be placed. Tumescent fluid is infiltrated into the area from which the fat will be suctioned. Then a cannula is inserted to remove the fat. A cannula is a special tool that makes it easier to work loose the fat as it is being removed. Depending on the number of areas treated, your surgery may take several hours. In the separate recovery area, your post-op team will help manage your pain and look after your treated areas until you are discharged.
What Results Can I expect from Liposuction
You may need to stay at home for recovery from liposuction surgery for several weeks based on the number of treatments performed and the size of the treatment area. It's typical to see swelling and bruising for 1 – 2 weeks, and overall swelling can last up to 6 months of more after surgery. What is most important following any surgery is to give your body time to rest and heal, but still be ambulatory. When you are ready to return to your job after your surgery, you should remember to go slow. To build up your strength and stamina, stick to short walks and light workouts as approved by our staff. Keep in mind, you may notice some changes soon after your surgery, but it will take 6 – 12 months until your new body shape and contour are attained.
