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.

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.

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.

Life moves by quickly and sometimes all you can do is just try to keep up. There are work, family, home, financial and other commitments we all have to meet. We all find times when we want life to slow down for a moment just so we can relax.

A massage may be the answer to bring relief to your aching muscles and body. The process increases and improves circulation and relaxes the muscles. It enables the body to release toxins from within muscles that cause stiffness and mild pain.

PRP Therapy turns back hands of time on your skin

PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy turns back the hands of time for aging skin. Imagine having younger looking skin with better tone and texture; sounds pretty good right? The treatment uses the body’s own natural healing processes, which makes it gentler on the body than other injectables and fillers.PRP, platelet rich plasma, Naples Laser and MedSpa, Bonita Springs FL, Naples FL

Certain areas on our bodies age quicker than others. Thank the Southwest Florida sun for the damage it inflects on our exposed skin, often making us appear much older than we are. PRP reverses the common aging signs in the skin specifically in the areas of the face, neck, hands.

Hate those crow’s feet or dark circles under your eyes? PRP helps make those areas of your skin become a distant memory.

So how does PRP Therapy work?

Do not get squeamish, but PRP Therapy uses your own blood.  The treatment involves putting a portion of your blood in a centrifuge until it contains a concentrated mix of plasma cells and growth factors. The resulting plasma gets injected directly into the injured tissue. The growth factors speed healing and improve tissue health.

The treatment takes approximately 30 minutes to an hour, though treatment time varies depending on the area treated. After treatment, skin may show some redness or bruising for a day or two. You can resume normal activities and make-up use the day after treatment.

It has an advantage over other treatments due to its natural quality. And because it uses a patient’s own blood, the patient will not experience allergic reactions. Other fillers get absorbed by the body and need repeat treatments. However, PRP stimulates the body’s own natural healing processes, so the results last longer. Due to using natural components, patients can use PRP Therapy in places where other fillers would not be recommended. It does not target individual lines and wrinkles but rather improves the overall quality of an area.

Thin areas under our eyes and the skin on our neck show dramatic improvement with PRP Therapy, reversing signs of aging. Lines on the upper lips, as seen on many smokers, improve in depth and hydration. Wrinkles experience volume augmentation and long lasting collagen regeneration effects. Additionally, it enhances the texture and vitality of your skin by creating new blood vessels. Newly created vessels provide vital nutrients to the skin.

Are you convinced PRP Therapy will bring you better looking skin? Interested in trying it out? This month, try PRP at Naples Laser and MedSpa for a special price of $999 for one area. Call us at 239-228-7491 to set up your appointment.

Dermasmooth gives skin smoother, fresher look

Dermasmooth removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells as well as the small peach fuzz-like hairs often found on the face, leaving a much smoother look and feel.

Dermasmooth | Naples Laser and MedSpa | Naples, FL | Bonita Springs, FLA Dermasmooth treatment involves scraping a surgical blade against the skin. It may not sound like it but it is a gentle procedure. The light scraping removes dead skin cells on the surface of the skin as well as the tiny vellus hairs on the face.

The process increases cellular turnover and encourages skin rejuvenation. The results are immediate and there is no recovery time, which means it could be done during your lunch hour.
