We love a perfect pairing—OrangeTwist offers complementary treatments that you can schedule for the same time.

“Combining treatments will get you to your goals faster,” says Kelsey Morgan, LE, who works out of OrangeTwist’s Newport Beach location.

Susie Cody, a registered aesthetic nurse also in Newport Beach, says it’s good to talk over your strategy for doubling up services and products from OrangeTwist. You’ll do the deep treatment first (unless it’s ablative or can cause a wound), and then the lighter ones such as Botox, filler, and Sculptra afterward. “Combining treatments can increase the desired result and yield a much greater outcome,” she says. You’ll also want to ask about package deals to save money, what the downtime is and why the combination is more effective than doing it separately.

Morgan and Cody have come up with a list of treatment combos that work beautifully in tandem to help magnify and speed up your results. First, though, it’s good to understand how the basics work on their own:

Clear & Brilliant: This non-invasive gentle laser treatment reduces hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and pore size. In only 20 minutes, you’ll walk away with a radiant glow that can last a long time.

CoolSculpting: This non-invasive treatment permanently removes fat cells in targeted areas by freezing them at a specific temperature. Over a period of up to three months, the body eliminates them naturally. It can be done nearly anywhere stubborn fat accumulates, including the abdomen, hips, butt, arms, under the chin and thighs.

Fillers: Treatments such as Radiesse, Belotero, Juvederm, and Restylane can help fill in superficial wrinkles and add volume to areas such as lips and cheeks.

Forever Young BBL: This IPL laser treatment will transform your skin. IPL stands for “intense pulse light treatment” that helps to minimize photo-aging symptoms by heating the outer layers of the skin and prompting the body’s own healing mechanisms to kick in. This is appropriate for the face, hands, chest, shoulders, arms, and back.

Forma: This Radio frequency treatment can tighten tissue and reduce fine lines and pore size. Forma is considered a “non-surgical facelift.”

Fractora: This Radio frequency microneedling improves the skin’s tone and elasticity while reducing the appearance of fine lines and pores.

HydraFacial: Our signature HydraFacial will exfoliate and moisturize your skin, with direct delivery of peptides and other healing serums while removing toxins and gunk that has accumulated in your pores.

Laser hair removal: A laser targets the hair follicle, delaying its growth. Because hair grows in cycles, it can take a few treatments to sync up the grow-back pattern. There’s zero recovery time, and you may feel a little tenderness in the treated area directly afterward.

Neurotoxins: Botox and Dysport are neurotoxins that give your facial muscles a rest from repeated movements that can cause wrinkling and creasing—it can improve existing lines and prevent new ones from forming.

Sculptra: This filler helps to restore facial structure and volume and triggers collagen production for firmer, healthier and younger-looking skin.

Ultherapy: This “lunchtime facelift” is also FDA-cleared for improving skin on the neck and décolletage. The ultrasound waves go below the skin’s surface to help stimulate collagen.

Vivace Microneedling: In tandem with Radio frequency to tighten the skin, tiny needles make nearly microscopic punctures in the skin’s outer layers, prompting the body’s healing response of collagen and elastin production. The result is softer, smoother skin.

ZO Skin Health Stimulator Peel: This light chemical peel is given in the office to rejuvenate the skin’s surface, then we send you home with moisturizing and healing balms.

Here’s what you can pair together for a more streamlined OrangeTwist experience:

  1. Clear & Brilliant + Sculptra
  2. CoolSculpting + Forma
  3. CoolSculpting + laser hair removal

Finally, there’s something you can pair with virtually every treatment. “Add a vitamin I.V. to everything, especially to long CoolSculpting treatments,” Morgan says.
