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.

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.

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.

Brotox increasing in popularity

Brotox is increasing in popularity as men start looking to fillers as a quick way to get rid of wrinkles and look younger. Even male celebrities such as Simon Cowell and David Hasselhoff admit to using Botox to improve their appearance.

According to statistics from the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the number one non-surgical cosmetic treatment for men is injections of Botulinum Toxin, including Botox and Dysport.

In 2015, more than 400,000 injections were given to men, roughly 10 percent of all injections of that type. The No. 2 non-surgical cosmetic treatment was injections of Hyaluronic Acid, including Juvederm and Restylane.

Vanity is not exclusive to women. In the age of “selfies” there are men who find themselves unsatisfied with their own appearance. Despite attempts to live a healthy lifestyle, elements like sun exposure, gravity, weight fluctuations and aging, all take their toll on the face as wrinkles set in.

Nobody wants to look in the mirror and see a reflection staring back that appears much older than how they feel. Brotox can help men appear younger by diminishing lines and wrinkles that cause one to look older or tired.

Many men also consider Brotox for professional reasons. Research shows it can have a positive impact on confidence in the workplace, which in turn improves odds of professional success. In a highly competitive job market, Brotox could give that extra edge of confidence to land a job or promotion.

It’s just easier to feel and show more confidence if you are confident in your appearance.

Many men become concerned with the “eleven” lines. These vertical creases are formed between the eyebrows when they furrow. As one ages, these lines become increasingly visible but Botox can be used to smooth them out.

Since Brotox is non-invasive and non-surgical, the treatment can be performed quickly—even during a lunch break—and produce immediate results. The treatment appears natural and offers a refreshed, well-rested, younger appearance in just a few minutes.

Don’t miss a chance to learn more about Brotox and meet Dan. Give us a call at 239-228-7491 to reserve your seat.

Volbella

Volbella can give you fuller, smoother lips

Volbella Volbella by Juvaderm, a newly approved treatment by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use in lips, can increase lip fullness and smooth in the lines around the lips.

If you or someone you know wants to reduce those lines around the lips caused by aging or smoking, this may be a great option. Volbella can help define the contour of the lip by accentuating the border of the lips and providing fullness. The treatment can also assist with asymmetrical lips by adding to one (upper or lower) in order to achieve balance and enhance the definition of the middle of the upper lip or “cupid’s bow.”

As we age, our skin loses its volume, hydration and elasticity – all of which promote a youthful appearance. Volbella is used to give volume and create contours on the face where it is needed, especially in the lips and around the mouth.

How Volbella works

Volbella is a softer, smoother gel than other lip fillers, able to mimic the natural feeling of the lips. The hyaluronic acid-based gel has Vycross technology which creates better lifting and support for more natural and longer lasting results. It also results in less water absorption, and therefore less swelling than other lip fillers.

The results of Volbella typically last for a year to 18 months, which makes it one of the longest lasting lip enhancement products on the market.

You may think that an injection in the lips would be quite painful due to the sensitivity of the skin in that area of the face. However, Volbella injections include Lidocaine, which helps to numb the lips short-term during the injections so discomfort is minimized. This makes the procedure more tolerable and comfortable for the patient.

The treatment is a quick process and can be completed in less than 15 minutes. There may be additional swelling for a few days after the procedure and some slight bruising at the site of the injections. The results can be seen immediately.

Volbella is a breakthrough for achieving better lip fullness and smoothing those lines around the mouth, and it can help recipients have more confidence with their appearance.

Naples Laser & Medspa is proud to add Volbella to its offerings. Want to give it a try? Give us a call at 239-228-7491 to schedule an appointment.
