Try Xeomin® as an Effective Botox® Alternative

beautiful mature smiling woman with clear, smooth skin.

Botox® is a brand name which has become well-known for its ability to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, facial lines and other signs of aging. Many people may not be aware of Botox® alternatives that may offer similar, if not better, age-defying results in treating moderate to severe wrinkles. In particular, FDA-approved Xeomin® has been making its mark in recent years as an effective go-to alternative to Botox®. While Xeomin’s® rising popularity was driven in large by demand from those who became immune to Botox®, the injectable’s effectiveness has made it a viable alternative in its own right.

Based on both its use for those who’ve become immune to Botox® and for its wrinkle-reducing efficacy, Naples, Florida-based Tru Glō Medspa includes Xeomin® among its arsenal of minimally invasive injectable wrinkle treatments.

 

What is Xeomin® and How Does it Differ from Botox®?

Like Botox®, Xeomin® is a muscle relaxant made from the botulism toxin that reduces the look of wrinkles and age lines by blocking the nerve signals to the underlying muscles. Unlike injectable fillers that work by filling in the spaces caused by wrinkles, these botulism-based injectables ease the muscle tension ultimately responsible for the line formations. While the two botulism-based injectable treatments are nearly indistinguishable from each other—the main difference is the absence of certain accessory proteins, which allows Xeomin® to skirt around any Botox®-related immunity build-up.

Other than the immunity related variance between these two injectables, the most noteworthy difference is that patients treated with Xeomin® tend to feel less tightness in the injection areas than those treated with Botox®. In a double-blind study comparing the two, doctors and patients could not tell the difference between those treated with Botox® and those treated with Xeomin®.

Tru Glō Medspa primarily utilizes Xeomin® and other botulism-based injectables to treat the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines.

The wrinkle-reducing effects of Xeomin® generally become most noticeable within a few weeks and should last for a few months. After this time, additional treatments will likely be needed to maintain the desired results.

Tru Glō Medspa Ecstatic Over Non-Surgical Facelift

silhouette-instalift-blog

Naples, Florida-based Tru Glō Medspa is pleased to now offer an innovative minimally invasive procedure that provides many of the same benefits of a facelift. This non-surgical procedure—the FDA-approved Silhouette InstaLift®—lifts the deeper layers of epidermal facial skin to re-contour the mid-face region while boosting the body’s natural collagen formation with the aim of stimulating a more youthful appearance. This innovative non-surgical alternative to the facelift is perfectly suited for women or men interested in rejuvenating their facial area without major surgery, injections or lasers.

 

What is the Secret behind Silhouette InstaLift®?

Drooping and sagging skin are among the leading contributors to aged and tired-looking appearances, which means that any measures that can elevate skin layers into their previous positions help renew youthful contours and reduce the signs of aging years.

Silhouette InstaLift® achieves this elevation by the insertion of internal sutures attached to bi-directional cones that both lift and reposition the deep skin layers of the mid-face or cheek area. These sutures and cones are made of biomedical materials—glycolide/L-lactide (PLGA)—that are well tolerated by the body’s system and used in many medical devices. They are naturally absorbed into the skin over time and help further stimulate healthy skin renewal and collagen growth. This results in a natural looking lifting and renewal of the skin, with initial contouring and increased volume results noticeable almost immediately.

Approved by the U.S. FDA in 2015, Silhouette InstaLift® has proven to be well tolerated by patients and receiving buzz as a facelift alternative with media exposure by “ELLE,” “Marie Claire,” “New Beauty,” “Allure,” and “The Doctors TV.”

 

Your Silhouette InstaLift® Procedure

Prior to initiation of any Silhouette Instalift® procedure, Tru Glo’s in-house Nurse Practitioner Stacey Blake, APRN, will consult with you to assess patient goals, gauge skin condition, and plan suture placement. Suitable candidates for Silhouette Instalift® must have good skin quality that is neither too thick nor too thin, but also showing signs of noticeable sagging.   

During the actual in-office procedure, your Silhouette Instalift® specialist will mark out the areas on the face needing lifting and provide a local anesthetic to numb the area before inserting the sutures. The specialist will then gently insert a needle to a depth of approximately 5 mm, guide it through the subcutaneous tissue of the mid-face region, and extract it at each bi-directional exit point. Once the desired lifting and contouring has been achieved, typically within about 45 minutes, the procedure is done.

Some patients might experience a minimal inflammatory tissue reaction after the procedure. Other potential symptoms include minor pain, swelling and bruising. Any side effects beyond the above listed ones should be reported to Tru Glō Medspa as soon as possible.

FDA Expands CoolSculpting® Treatment Options for Chin

Coolsculpting treatment for chin

With European approval in 2000, and U.S. FDA approval in 2012, CoolSculpting® has established a solid track record as an effective, minimally invasive fat removal treatment system, with more than six million treatments performed worldwide. Already FDA cleared to treat visible fat bulges in the thigh, abdomen, flank, back and submental (chin) area, the agency in December expanded submental treatment to cover all lax tissue in conjunction with fat in the double chin.

CoolSculpting® for the double chin had already been clinically proven to reduce fat by up to 20 percent with just one treatment to the affected area. The expanded approval for lax tissue was sought because doctors using CoolSculpting® had noticed the improved appearance of lax tissue along with the reduction in fat. A 2015 supplemental 18-week clinical study of CoolSculpting® in submental fat treatment determined that 77 percent of patients showed improvement in lax tissue appearance, with 75 percent of these patients expressing the belief that their chin lines looked more toned following the treatment.

CoolSculpting® Works by Putting the Chill on Fat Cells

Also known as “Cryolipolosis,” CoolSculpting® eliminates diet- and exercise-resistant fat by targeting such localized fat deposits with freezing. Once chilled, the fat cells crystalize and die, and are then permanently removed over the next few weeks and months by the body’s own natural metabolic processes. The surrounding skin and tissue, meanwhile, are unaffected because fat cells freeze at higher temperatures.

Because CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure, there is no downtime or extensive recovery period, and limited side effects beyond light bruising and numbness around the vicinity of the treated area. Thus, CoolSculpting® is perfect for people who want to avoid the downtime, or are otherwise looking for alternatives to liposuction and other more invasive procedures.

So Easy That You Can Treat Two Areas With Duel CoolSculpting®

Whether muffin top, spare tire, secretary spread, or that aforementioned double chin, Naples, Florida-based Tru Glō Medspa can come up with a plan to help remove that unwanted fat and help you sculpt a firmer, more toned body and face. Because it’s likely that you have more than one area on your body that contains diet- and exercise-resistant fat, Tru Glō Medspa offers dual CoolSculpting® so that you can treat multiple stubborn fatty areas twice as fast.

And the actual treatment couldn’t be easier. An initial consultation with one of our specialists will tailor an individualized CoolSculpting® treatment plan designed to meet your goals by safely reducing problem fat pockets that are limiting your positive body image. Once in treatment the device—or two for those undergoing the dual CoolSculpting®—is strategically positioned and the controlled cooling slowly applied. During the treatment session you can read, surf the Internet or even take a nap. Once the session is concluded, you can typically return to work or engage in any other normal every-day activities.

If you’re ready to explore options such as CoolSculpting® for a means of reshaping a new you, call a reputable medical spa now for a free consultation. Tru Glō Medspa looks forward to meeting you and developing a CoolSculpting® plan that will take care of those stubborn fat deposits and firm up your body.

A Hydrafacial is All You Need to Love Your Skin Again

Experience the Best in Facials Naples, FL

Face it. If you live in Florida, your skin takes a beating. Sun, wind and daily wear and tear has taken its toll on your facial epidermis. Exposure, dirt and microbes may have parched and cracked your once glorious skin, but there is a simple solution to roll back the damage—a hydrafacial from Tru Glo Medspa.

Facials have been around since black and white TV, but the latest incarnation from the acclaimed medical specialists of Tru Glo Medspa combine hydration with a chemical peel and a powerful exfoliation that will leave your skin glowing and baby soft.  The results are so divine that your friends will beg you to tell them where you have hidden the Fountain of Youth.

Hydrafacials are Powerful Skin Care Solutions

 

The Tru Glo Medspa hydrafacial begins with an exfoliation which whisks away the foreign particles and dead skin from your face.  We use a specialized exfoliation technology called HydroPeel that uses a gentle vacuum to remove the topmost layers of unsightly skin. In the hands of our expert skin care professionals, the exfoliator can be applied several times until your natural vitality reaches its peak. Not only will Hydropeel strip away layers of dead skin, it will invigorate the remaining layers, stimulating blood flow and natural collagen production.

Then follows a chemical peel which unclogs your pores, adding additional layers of brilliance to your skin’s luster. This painless procedure uses glycolic/salicylic acid mixture that saturates your skin and adheres to any particles hiding there before being peeled away. This is one of our most powerful skin facial treatments for age spots, fine lines, and discolorations.

Next is the hydradermabrasion, which is much like a microdermabrasion, but uses water instead of crystals or a diamond wand. Unlike these harsher abrasives, our water treatment is gentler and more nourishing. Our hydradermabrasion babies your skin, gently coaxing your natural vigor to rise to the surface.

Finally, we use a Vortex-Fusion hydration system which saturates your skin with antioxidants and hyaluronic acid to moisturize your skin and protect it from the elements.  These nutrient-rich creams will suffuse your skin, making it silky and butter soft.

Our hydrafacial is non-invasive and can be completed in a single, short session. There is almost no discomfort during the course of treatment, so no anesthesia is required. Following your hydrafacial, you can immediately return to your daily activities.
