MedSpa specials can help avoid financial obstacles

MedSpa specials may not immediately come to mind when you are thinking about saving money or when considering treatments to make you look younger.

We are use to looking for discounts on food and necessities but when it comes to your health and beauty, you want to look for the best deal but not necessarily the cheapest offer.

  • Don’t let price be your first or only factor when choosing a MedSpa or other facility that provides cosmetic treatments.

  • In addition to knowing questions to ask about your treatments, learn what questions to ask about the person performing the treatment. What type of experience, qualifications and skills do they have?

laser hair removal

Laser Hair Removal common questions

Laser Hair Removal provides a great alternative to traditional hair removal methods such as straight razors, electric shavers or topical creams.

In addition to being less painful than many methods, laser hair removal is more effective and longer lasting.

laser hair removalThe results for the treatment can be very effective for men and women with any type of skin tone. Although no one can guarantee complete permanent hair removal with laser treatments, the results are superior to many other methods.

Laser Hair Removal — What to consider

When considering laser hair removal, it is important to choose someone who is qualified and reputable. Here are some tips:

  • Be leery of anyone who guarantees permanent hair removal.
  • Discuss your expectations and goals and make sure you understand the procedure.
  • Find out who will perform the treatment and their skill level and experience.
  • Ask what methods they use to help minimize any discomfort.
  • Determine what type of treatments they provide and what is required before and after treatment.

At Naples Laser and MedSpa, we use two types of technologies in our hair removal series of treatments. We offer laser or light treatments to ensure the best possible results. We are one of the few facilities that can offer this combined technology for safe and effective hair removal in Naples and Bonita Springs, FL.

Laser Hair Removal Common Questions

Two of the most common questions we receive about laser hair removal are “Is it permanent” and “Will it hurt?”

As we mentioned, no one can guarantee permanent hair removal but we do see very good long lasting results. Our goal is to make our clients happy and help them achieve their desired results.

We put together a series of treatments, which are based on each individual’s goals, skin tone and hair type to help ensure the best results. We will develop the best options for each person rather than giving everyone the same recommendations. Individualized plans are key to any treatments.

Hot Stone Massages, Massage Naples Laser & MedSpa, Bonita Springs, Naples FL

Hot stone massages relax body, calm the spirit

Hot stone massages relax the body and calm the mind and spirit. The service is one of several different massages Naples Laser and MedSpa offers at its Bonita Springs and Naples locations.

You’ve probably guessed that in a hot stone massage, the massage therapist places warmed stones on your body as an addition to a regular therapeutic massage. However, there are a few things you might not know about hot stone massage.

The use of hot stone massage to relieve pain and stress is not a new massage therapy. Verbal and written history supports the notion the Chinese used heated stones to improve organ function more than 2,000 years ago.

Native Americans often used hot stones as part of sweat lodge practices, placing stones on women’s abdomens to ease menstrual cramps. Hawaiians also used hot stones for various healing practices.

Hot Stone Massages

Hot stone massages do not just use any old stone found in the garden or along the beach. Most hot stone massages use polished and hardened basalt stones, which retain heat much longer than a typical stone. They feel smooth and wonderful on the skin.

During a hot stone massage, the therapist heats as many as 50 basalt stones to 120–140º F, rubs them over your oiled body, and strategically places them on top of and beneath you on trigger points along the body — the spots likely to experience pain and sprains.

These areas can include the hand, toes, stomach, back, and neck. Some consider these spots the energy centers of the body.

Muscles that are tight and tense prove much harder to penetrate during a massage. By placing these stones along the tense spots in your body, the muscles loosen and relax, thereby allowing your massage therapist to really heal, lengthen, and soothe those areas without greatly increasing the pressure of the massage. Essentially, the warmed stones allow your massage therapist to do his or her job more readily and effectively while still maintaining your greatest comfort.

The therapist will leave some of the smooth, heated massage stones in contact with your body and use others to massage you. Cold stones are sometimes incorporated, especially on the face, where they have a firming effect.

Another benefit of hot stone massage therapy is that it helps calm the mind. It helps you go into a state of deep meditation.

The heat of the stones should never be too hot or uncomfortable. Talk to your therapist to get the most out of your experience.

If you are interested in booking an appointment for a hot stone massage or any of our other massage services, please call 239-228-7491.

Xeomin reduces frown lines around the eyes

Xeomin fights back against those troublesome frown lines. When injected into muscles, it improves the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows.

When you squint or frown, the muscles between your eyebrows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. Over time, as your skin ages and loses some of its elasticity, these repeated contractions can cause persistent frown lines.

Xeomin, acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, it can temporarily reduce the lines between your eyebrows.

It joins Botox and Dysport as the latest contender in a growing list of botulinum toxin type A injectables. Xeomin is so far the only one of the three that does not need refrigeration before use, which simplifies distribution.

The filler is also “naked,” meaning there are no additives. This may mean less risk of developing antibodies against it than other available neurotoxins. The body develops antibodies in response to a foreign invader and attacks. In theory, antibodies could prevent a neurotoxin from having its desired effects.

Do not use Xeomin interchangeably with other botulinum products.

Worldwide, more than 84,000 people used Xeomin injections. The U.S. became the 20th country to approve this new drug.

Xeomin treatment

During treatment, which usually takes about 10-20 minutes, your technician injects Xeomin into the muscles in your forehead that cause frown lines between your eyebrows. Application of a topical anesthetic or cold pack can reduce discomfort.

You will see visible smoothing as early as 3-4 days after injection. The typical duration of effect registered as up to 3 months in clinical trials but may last a significantly longer or shorter time in individual patients.

Side effects include bleeding, bruising and redness at the injection site. These effects subside between a few hours to a few days after the procedure.

Interested in trying Xeomin or finding out more about the services we offer at Naples Laser and MedSpa? Please give us a call at 239-228-7491.

Restylane Lyft

Restylane Lyft gives your cheeks a boost

Restylane Lyft adds definition and fullness to your cheeks without surgery. It helps you look younger and rejuvenated.

Restylane Lyft

As you age, so does your face. You may notice some obvious signs of aging that you hadn’t previously seen before. What were once subtle lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth have started to deepen over time. Cheeks that used to appear full and taut suddenly seem to sag and droop. While aging is a reality of life, it doesn’t mean you can’t maintain a natural, youthful look along the way.

Over time, the natural fat that surrounds the cheeks begins to deteriorate. This results in sagging skin, more prominent wrinkles and a reduction of volume.

Restylane Lyft corrects volume loss and treats moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. You will see improvement in the lines that run from your nose toward the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds or smiles lines) and the lines that run from the corners of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines).

It is the first and only FDA-approved filler indicated to provide lift to cheeks and add volume to correct and smooth smile lines (nasolabial folds).

Restylane Lyft contains a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, which is specially formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid.

Restylane Lyft treatment

A technician generally applies a topical anesthetic to the skin before the procedure. Next, they inject Restylane Lyft into the cheeks, wrinkles or folds being treated.

The process takes less than 20 minutes to complete.

You may experience slight bruising, swelling, redness and pain after treatment, but those side effects subside within a few days of the procedure.

The results last between 9 and 18 months, but can be prolonged with repeated treatments.

In a clinical trial, 95 percent of subjects treated with Restylane Lyft reported improvement with the appearance of the midface following treatments within two months of the treatment.

Of note, Restyland Lyft can safely be used in conjunction with Botox and other injectables. You can use Botox in the brow and crow’s feet areas or fill in the lip lines with Restylane Silk. Each injectable serves a purpose and the combined results can achieve a natural and noticeable youthful appearance without looking overdone.

This month, you can try Restylane for yourself. We are offering free Restylane with the purchase of 2 Lyft treatments while supplies last. Make sure you check out this special and all the other specials on our website.

Call us at 239-228-7491 to set up an appointment at either our Bonita Springs or Naples locations.

kybella, chin

Kybella gets rid of that double chin

Kybella cuts the fat under your chin. The first, and so far only, injectable approved by the FDA to tackle double chins works by destroying fat cells and making sure they can’t accumulate more fat in the future.

Everyone hates to see the buildup of fat under the chin, an unsightly bulge that can make your profile look pudgier that most prefer.kybella, chin

Clinically known as “submental fat,” we know the unfortunate accumulation as a double chin.

The persistent enlargement of that area can be persistent and difficult to eliminate through diet alone. But the relatively new injectable Kybella can tackle the trouble spot.

It works thanks to a potent deoxycholic acid that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. This means a rapid and lasting reduction in fat.

Kybella treatment

The staff at Naples Laser and MedSpa will consult with you to develop a customized treatment plan. Most will see results in double chin reduction after two to four treatments, with injections administered no less than a month apart.

Patients experience noticeable improvement to their profile without having to pair the procedure with significant weight loss.

Be prepared. Kybella treatments typically result in some swelling, but that should be short term. You will want to talk to our professionals immediately if you develop any facial muscle weakness or suddenly have an uneven smile or trouble swallowing.

But rest assured. Our specialists receive special training to administer the injectable, and can help determine the right treatment for you. Since every chin shapes out in different ways, treatment will vary.

Kybella could provide the answer to your double chin woes and restore a stronger profile. Get rid of fat buildup for good with Kybella injectables.

Naples Laer and MedSpa offers Kybella as one of its many services. To set up a consultation appointment in either our Bonita Springs or Naples locations, call 239-228-7491.

Radiesse, Hands

Radiesse gives hands more youthful appearance

Radiesse brings a youthful appearance back to your hands. The treatment provides an immediate volumizing effect that helps to reduce the prominence of tendons and veins in the hands, delivering smooth, natural-looking results that can last up to a year.

Sound amazing? Come learn more about this amazing treatment at Naples Laser and MedSpa’s Lunch & Learn on June 29 from 12 to 2 p.m. at our Bonita Springs location. The event will feature a live demonstration and special event pricing.Radiesse, Hands

As we age, we tend to fixate on the appearance of our face. There are numerous products on the market to reduce facial wrinkles, folds and spots. However, besides the face and neck, no area of the body shows the appearance of aging as clearly as the back of the hands.

As we age, the collagen and fat in the hands dissipates. This volume loss makes tendons more obvious and veins more visible. This results in our hands appearing bony and unattractive.

The loss of smoothness and plumpness in the hands is a natural and unavoidable part of the aging process. We can slow down the aging process, by regularly moisturizing our hands and using sunscreen daily.

Radiesse can dramatically improve the appearance of aging hands. It is the only dermal filler proven to immediately restore volume loss in the back of hands for smooth, natural-looking results that won’t give away your age. It is the first and only filler deemed safe and effective by the FDA to correct lost volume in hands.

Radiesse: How does it work?

The Radiesse treatment provides lift in the areas below deep wrinkles and folds, diminishing their appearance for a more refreshed look.

The hand and facial filler works to add volume under the skin, and over time, the benefits of Radiesse continue by stimulating your body’s own natural collagen.

The treatment takes only a few minutes and results can be soon immediately.

Afterwards, hands appear more youthful. The treatment reduces the appearance of tendons and veins and hands appear smoother and plumper.

Want to find out more or experience Radiesse for yourself? Make sure to make plans attend our Lunch and Learn on June 29 from 12 to 2 p.m. We will be doing a live demonstration of the Radiesse hand treatment, so you can see the results for yourself. We are also offering $100 off the treatment as well as other event-only specials. Make sure to reserve your spot by calling 239-228-7491.

If you have any questions about Radiesse or any of the other services Naples Laser and MedSpa offers, give us a call at 239-228-7491 or visit naplesmedspa.com. We have locations in Naples and Bonita Springs for your convenience.

Injectables

Injectables combat aging without surgery

Injectables provide a way to combat aging without drastic plastic surgery. Whether your goal is to instantly add volume to sunken cheekbones, fill in deep lines, reduce the appearance of wrinkles or add beautiful contours, the professionals at Naples Laser and MedSpa will work with you to help you achieve great results.Injectables

Heard about injectables, but want to learn more? This month’s Lunch & Learn on May 25 from 12-2 pm will discuss “The Artistry of Injectables.” The event features a live model demonstration with Pam Neitzel, owner and founder of Naples Laser and Medspa. She boasts more than 13 years experience in the industry and is a national trainer and educator on advanced techniques with injectables and laser techniques.

Injectables – What are the differences?

Both Botox and facial fillers are both effective methods of improving signs of aging. People often confuse them with each other and consider them to be synonymous. The truth is they tackle specific and different problems.

Botox’s primarily treats and prevents facial wrinkles. The FDA approved Botox as a cosmetic treatment for frown lines above the eyebrows and wrinkles. Botox reduces the activity of muscles in the face that cause wrinkles.

Facial fillers or dermal fillers get used to prevent or eliminate signs of aging in the face, such as wrinkles. Facial fillers fill trouble areas with collagen, which stimulates collagen growth in the face and also plumps and lifts the skin to replace collagen loss. This helps your skin achieve as youthful a look as possible and eliminates signs of aging that occur as a result of collagen depletion.

The important things to consider when choosing between Botox and facial fillers is what kind of wrinkles you want to get rid of and how you plan to do it. Botox remains the better choice for dynamic wrinkles as it will reduce their motion and visibility. These wrinkles occur when the face is in motion or making expression. They are usually positioned in the forehead and around the eyebrows. Facial fillers are ideal for static wrinkles, which are visible even when you relax your face and make no expressions. These areas appear depleted and sunken in and benefit from the fullness that facial fillers provide.

We offer many different types of injectables, including Belotero, Botox, Dysport, Juvederm, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm Voluma XC, Kybella, Radiesse, Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Silk and Sculptra at both our Bonita Springs and Naples locations.

Injectables: Learn more

Still have questions about the world of injectables or interested in trying out one of our injecteables? Make sure to join us at our Lunch and Learn event at our Bonita Springs spa. We will have event special pricing on Botox, Dysport and our fillers. We also plan to hold a filler raffle during the event.

spider veins, bonita springs, naples

Spider veins shouldn’t stop you from showing your legs

Spider veins shouldn’t keep you from wearing shorts or even a swimsuit. Imagine hitting the beach without worrying how your legs look.spider veins, bonita springs, naples

Thanks to the warm temperatures in Southwest Florida, you can bare your legs year-round, so why not make sure they look their best?

Twisting and turning blood vessels can creep across your legs and face, leaving easily seen dark purple and blue marks. Though completely harmless, spider veins cause many people to feel self-conscious.We treat these marks with our Profile Clearscan Laser. You can confidently put back on that favorite short dress or swim suit when you stride onto the sands.

Spider veins develop more often for women than men and increase in frequency with age. Several risk factors contribute to the appearance of spider veins including heredity, obesity, hormones, and birth control use. Occupations that involve a lot of standing such as hair stylists, nurses, teachers or factory workers can also lead to spider vein development.

But do not feel alone; an estimated 30-60 percent of adults have spider veins.

Spider veins treatment

Using the Profile Clearscan Laser, Naples Laser and Medspa staff can safely and effectively treat visible vessels, broken capillaries, spider veins, vascular lesions and discoloration of your skin.

Clearscan is a new laser that uses infrared energy. Unwanted vessels will be preferentially heated by the laser’s energy and become less noticeable. It helps with larger (blue) reticular veins or smaller facial veins.

All skin areas receive help through the treatment including the face, neck, chest and legs. Smaller vessels are easily treated, but some larger vessels such as bulging varicose veins in the legs require other treatment plans. A consultation helps us determine your specific needs.

After the treatment, your skin may develop a pink or red color, but that will resolve over time. Any vessels denatured by the laser reabsorb into your body in a natural cleansing process. Most small capillaries will become invisible almost immediately since they will no longer contain blood flow. Some larger areas of cluster vessels require a longer healing period and may appear bruised for a short time. Your skin will be sensitive to ultraviolet light and you must avoid direct sunlight on treated areas until you are fully healed.

There should be little to no discomfort, however this varies from client to client and depends on the depth of the treatment. There is no need for anesthesia. The SouthWest Laser and MedSpa staff will discuss your options to properly manage any discomfort from the treatment.

At Naples Laser and Medspa, we welcome your questions. Feel free to call us at 239-228-7491 to schedule a free consultation. We’d be happy to show you firsthand how this simple procedure works, and show you before-and-after photos of those who have had Clearscan spider vein treatments.

Don’t let those spider veins keep your legs covered up any longer.

Forever Young, Naples, Bonita Springs

Forever Young erases signs of aging

Forever Young BBL can help you look years younger by erasing signs of aging. The treatment rejuvenates skin and delays skin aging.

Sound like something worth trying? During this month, Naples and MedSpa offers buy one get one half off on Forever Young treatments.Forever Young, Naples, Bonita Springs

Forever Young BBL (broadband light) is an innovative technology that uniquely delivers light therapy targeting the signs of aging and sun damage and effectively provides a more refreshed, rejuvenated and youthful appearance.

Scientific evidence demonstrates regular maintenance treatments using Forever Young BBL functionally rejuvenate skin and delay skin aging.

Your technician customizes the treatment to match your skin type and desired results. It is ideal for reducing age spots along with many other types of skin conditions and blemishes on the face, hands, neck, chest, shoulders, and back.

Skin issues like acne, redness, and hyperpigmentation start below the skin’s surface, which makes topical products less effective. Reaching the source of the problem requires an advanced treatment like the Sciton Forever Young BBL (broadband light).

Forever Young treatment process

The light energy delivered by the BBL will gently heat the upper layers of your skin. It targets damaged cells in the skin, jumpstarting the body’s natural healing process.

When this occurs, pigmented damage such as sun spots and freckles rise to the surface of the skin and naturally flake off.  The heat also stimulates your skin cells to regenerate new collagen, leading to increased skin firmness.

In addition, the photothermal energy will reduce unwanted melanin that produces pigmented lesions and eliminate fine vessels that cause redness.

This process restores your skin to its natural beauty, making it smoother and vibrant while ensuring you look younger.

Forever Young therapy is completely non-invasive and so gentle that there is virtually no recovery time after treatments. You will be able to resume your normal activities right away.

Generally, between one and three treatments are necessary to achieve the best results, depending on what skin problem needs treatment. May is an ideal time to try this treatment, while we are offering buy one get one half off for the Forever Young treatment.

To learn more about how Forever Young BBL treatment can benefit you, request a free skincare consultation at 239-228-7491. We have offices in Naples (898 5th Avenue South, Suite 204) and Bonita Springs (24850 S Tamiami Trl Suite # 4).
