A Minimally Invasive Approach To Reducing Double Chin

Naples Florida, mature woman outdoors, minimally invasive approach to reducing double chin with Kybella

Losing fat through diet and exercise takes dedication and hard work, but even the most stalwart follower of fat-reducing regimens has an especially difficult time reducing fat deposits under the chin. In fact, the fatty tissue that builds up in a double chin is typically the most resistant to diet and exercise and the last to show any signs of reduction. With that in mind, Naples, Florida-based Tru Glō Medspa is pleased to offer a groundbreaking, non-invasive injectable treatment that works with the body’s natural processes to break down and destroy fat deposits in the chin area.      

Why is Fat in the Double Chin so Difficult to Lose?

Technically referred to as “submental fullness,” the double chin is primarily caused by weight gain, aging, and genetic disposition, with all three typically playing a role in most cases. The genetic component is among the most significant factor because it dictates the body’s propensity for how much fat will be stored in the submental (chin) area. Weight gain plays a role because if you put on the pounds a portion of it will end up in the chin according to your genetics. Last, aging plays a role because the muscles in the area weaken with age as the skin gets looser, both of which allow any fat deposits to more easily droop and bulge.  

This aging factor adds to the difficulty of reducing double chin by diet and exercise because there is no way to spot reduce fat. Any diet-and exercise-related fat loss in the chin will be proportional to fat loss everywhere else; however, that distinct loss may not be as apparent due to any age-related skin looseness and muscle weakness. Thus, while the two-inch loss of fat around your waist might be apparent, the commensurate amount lost around the chin area might not even be noticed.   

Your Premier Naples, FL Medical Spa Offers Kybella®    

With the limited results offered by diet and exercise, some people turn to more invasive methods, such as micro liposuction or surgical neck lift, to correct their double chins. However, there is an injectable treatment for double chin that has been clinically proven to reduce submental fat deposits. Approved as a one-of-a-kind treatment by the FDA in 2015, Tru Glō Medspa is now offering its Naples, Florida-area medical spa clients Kybella®, a synthetic formulation of a naturally occurring compound in our bodies that breaks down fat, which is then naturally disposed of by the body’s metabolic process.

Kybella’s® active ingredient is the synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring bile used by our bodies to help with fat absorption during the digestive process. The synthetic form works in a similar manner by breaking down the fat cells it is exposed to after being injected into the treatment area. While results are not immediate, most patients notice a difference within four to six weeks after the first injections. And, because the fat cells are destroyed, results are permanent and no further treatment should be needed after aesthetic goals have been met.    

Your Kybella® treatment at Tru Glō Medspa represents a quick procedure that may cause some swelling, tenderness and slight pain, but most patients are able to resume  normal daily activities immediately after. If you would like to learn more about how Kybella® can reduce the fat in your chin for a more sculpted facial physique, contact us today through our website contact page, or by calling 239-919-7009.

Freeze Excess Fat Away With CoolSculpting®

With winter soon to wane and warm months shortly to be on the horizon, many people are already making an effort through diets and exercise to slim down in advance of the summer season. But, as we all know, fat is stubborn and diets and exercise do not always bring about the desired weight loss results. For some unlucky people, whether due to metabolism or some other factor, such measures can even seem to be an exercise in futility.

Some people who struggle with stubborn fat and excess weight turn to invasive alternatives to diet and exercise. There are surgeries and implantable gastric bands that can shrink the size of the stomach and/or restrict the absorption of calories, as well as implantable devices that send electronic impulses that trick the brain into believing the stomach is full. And there is liposuction, the most popular invasive weight loss procedure, which breaks up and sucks the fat from the body. While all of these invasive procedures can be effective at reducing fat and helping people lose weight, many people balk at the potential side effects and downtime.  


Consider This Non-Invasive Fat Destroying Alternative   

That’s why Naples, Florida-based Tru Glō Medspa offers its clients a revolutionary, non-invasive treatment that works by destroying the actual fat cells inside the body, rather than by removing them with liposuction or by reducing their size through surgery or implants. CoolSculpting® eliminates diet- and exercise-resistant fat by freezing localized fat deposits. Once chilled for a short period of time in a process known “cryolipolysis,” fat cells crystalize and die. These dead cells are then slowly removed by the body’s own natural metabolic process over the next few weeks and months. The surrounding skin and tissue, meanwhile, are unaffected because fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than other cells.


Attacking Excess Fat on the Cellular Level

The key to CoolSculpting’s® success is, like liposuction, the destruction of the actual fat cells. Everyone has a set number of fat cells, a number that generally gets established during adolescence. When people lose weight by traditional diet or exercise, or by calorie-reducing surgery treatments or implants, the reduced weight occurs at the cellular level with a corresponding reduction in fat cell size. The number of fat cells stays the same, but their size has decreased. Any increase in caloric intake can plump those fat cells right back up to where they were pre-diet, exercise or procedure.

Thus, CoolSculpting® is a fat loss treatment, rather than a weight loss treatment. Approved in Europe since 2000, and FDA approved in the U.S. in 2012, CoolSculpting® has an established track record with more than six million treatments performed worldwide. It can be used to treat visible fat bulges in the thigh, abdomen, flank, back and submental (chin) areas.


Tru Glō Medspa Offers Dual CoolSculpting® Treatment

If 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 during one session. DualSculpting is the ability to utilize two CoolSculpting® machines at once.

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 DualSculpting—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 normal everyday activities.

Because CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure, there is no downtime or extensive recovery period. There are 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.
Tru Glō Medspa can help you remove unwanted fat deposits and help you sculpt a firmer, more toned body and face. If you would like to learn more about how CoolSculpting® can reshape a new you, contact us today through our contact page, or by calling 239-919-7009.

Tru Glō Medspa Offers Medical Grade hCG Weight Loss Program

While an effective weight loss pill that shreds the pounds without any significant side effects remains elusive, a few medications and supplements used with exercise and diet may boost weight loss results. Tru Glō Medspa relies on several such substances as part of its medically supervised weight loss program, which has expanded its program to include the use of hCG, a natural hormone produced in the body. Tru Glō Medspa’s Medical Grade hCG Program has proven successful, with some clients losing up to a pound per day, and the program resulting in an average monthly weight loss of 20 pounds among those who have enrolled. No Tru Glō Medspa patients have experienced any adverse side effects, and most patients have reported that they feel no loss of energy despite the program’s reduced caloric intake.


What is hCG and How Does it Work?

Spelled out as “human chorionic gonadotropin,” hCG is a hormone produced by the body that presents itself in high levels during pregnancy to help women mobilize fat reserves for use as energy for both the mother and fetus. First recognized as a potential weight loss tool by a British doctor named Albert Simeons in the mid-1950s, hCG helps reduce appetite, maintains normal energy levels, and wards off the unpleasant impacts of a low calorie diet such as headaches and mood swings. Simeons, who devoted much of his career to the issues of obesity and weight loss, determined that hCG used in conjunction with a low calorie diet of 500 calories or less could dramatically help patients lose weight. While researchers have since determined that the low calorie diet itself is primarily responsible for the lost weight, the hCG is believed to work on a metabolic basis to ensure that fat rather than muscle is being reduced.


It’s All About the Metabolism

Anyone can lose weight by simply eating fewer calories and fat, but due to the body’s natural metabolic processing designed to maintain fat reserves for times of deprivation, most people lose muscle and bone density before fat. This also causes cellular metabolism to slow down, which further encourages weight gains while at the same time promoting further losses in muscle mass and bone density. By combining hCG with the low calorie diet, extra fat is mobilized for energy, and, as the fat is eliminated, the low calorie diet prevents the emptied fat cells from being refilled. Meanwhile, the muscles and bones are protected by hCG’s metabolic impact, making for a healthier calorie-restricted diet.

With hCG working naturally to encourage metabolic mobilization of fat as the body’s energy source, it effectively reduces one’s appetite. Despite the reduction in calories, the body is able to access needed energy from the fat cells. In fact, most patients notice a significant decrease in their appetite within three days, and most people have plenty of energy and feel good while on the program. While hCG is a pregnancy hormone, the small amounts given to patients do not stimulate any pregnancy related response beyond the metabolic activity with fat reserves. In fact, hCG can be safely used by both men and women.  


Your Medical Grade hCG Program at Tru Glō Medspa

Your Medical Grade hCG Program at Tru Glō Medspa begins with a physical exam and consultation designed to assess which of our medically supervised weight loss programs is likely to be most effective. If the hCG program is deemed appropriate, you will be provided with medical grade hCG and receive advice on diet and exercise protocols while on the program. Properly scheduled follow-up visits will be booked and patients are advised to contact Tru Glō Medspa with any questions or concerns.  

Tru Glō Medspa is pleased to offer this weight loss program, and looks forward to discussing its benefits with clients. If you would like to learn more about the Medical Grade hCG program at Naples, Florida-based Tru Glō Medspa, our nurse practitioner, Stacey Blake, APRN, FNP-C,  will be glad to meet with you in a complimentary, no obligation consultation.
