Cellulite Reduction

Naples, FL Med Spa Offers Tips for Reducing the Look of Cellulite

Many women who maintain healthy diets and regularly exercise are shocked when patches of cellulite emerge on their butts, thighs, or other areas of their body. But perhaps they shouldn’t be given that roughly nine out of 10 women will develop cellulite at some point during their lives. With interest in all things relating to health and beauty, Tru Glō Medspa knows a thing or two about cellulite and can offer its Naples, Florida-area clients the skinny on what causes cellulite and how to help keep it at bay.

What is Cellulite, and What Causes it to Form?

A combination of things causes cellulite formation, and the cellulite itself is essentially clumps of fat cells that protrude through connective tissues under the skin. Because everyone has fat cells, anyone can develop cellulite, but women are more prone to developing it because they have fewer bands of connective tissue under their skin.

Our skin naturally thins as we age, while our fat cells tend to enlarge and put more pressure against the thinning skin. Meanwhile, fibrous bands under our skin are getting thicker with age. These three factors produce tension in the skin, creating cellulite’s signature cottage cheese-like dimpling. Thus, even if you maintain a healthy weight and toned body, you might still develop cellulite. It may seem unfair, but nature has never held a propensity for fairness.

How to Prevent or Reduce the Appearance of Cellulite

If you already have cellulite, there is nothing you can do to completely eliminate it. However, you can take action to reduce its appearance or help prevent it from forming in the first place. Start with a healthy diet and exercise. Even though it cannot prevent the formation of cellulite, it can help make it look less noticeable. Not only does it help decrease the layers of fat under the skin, but firmer muscle tone can help smooth the skin’s appearance. Healthy eating and exercise also help strengthen the connective tissues and foster stronger, healthier, and more supple skin.

Researchers believe that the buildup of toxins in your body can damage the skin. This makes it easier for cellulite to form. Thus, your diet plan should limit toxin-laden products such as alcohol, coffee, and processed foods and refrain from using tobacco. Certain food items, such as Gingko Biloba and dandelion tea and leaves, can help flush the body of toxins.

According to recent research, some lotions and creams may help reduce the appearance of cellulite. Products containing caffeine reportedly help dehydrate cells, making cellulite less noticeable. Skin-care products with at least 0.3% retinol may also help due to retinol’s skin-thickening properties.

Medical Treatments for Cellulite

The FDA has approved several medical treatments for cellulite reduction, and researchers are assessing the efficacy of other potential treatments. Currently available treatments include:

  • Radiofrequency—creates heat to kill fat cells and tighten skin
  • Carboxytherapy—relies on carbon dioxide gases to kill fat cells.
  • Subcision—uses needles to break up the fibrous bands under the skin.
  • Acoustic Wave Therapy—uses acoustic waves to break up fibrous bands and disrupt fat cells.
  • Laser therapy—uses laser energy to break up fibrous bands, destroy adjacent fat cells, and stimulate skin-strengthening collagen production.
  • Injectable enzymes—disrupt the underlying structural formation of cellulite by easing fibrous band tension and redistributing fat cells

Tru Glō Medspa Turns to QWO® Injectables for Buttocks Cellulite

Of the FDA-approved options, Tru Glō Medspa relies on QWO® injectables as its primary buttocks cellulite treatment. Supported by FDA approval and successful clinical trials, the plastic surgery profession considers QWO® as the go-to cellulite treatment for treating moderate to severe cellulite buildup in the buttocks. With a standard treatment protocol consisting of three injection sessions spaced 21 days apart, most women experience noticeable results within 10 weeks and the most noticeable cellulite reduction within three months.

QWO® stands for collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes. This is a type of collagenase enzyme that has been clinically proven at disrupting the tissue structures that cause cellulite. While scientists do not fully understand the physiological action at work, the collagenases ease the tension of the age-thickened fibrous bands, help redistribute fat cells, and boost new collagen growth. Combined, these actions serve to reduce the signature dimpling that marks the appearance of cellulite.

Consider QWO® at Naples-Based Tru Glō Medspa

First time @ Tru Glo and had a wonderful experience. I had a hydra facial with Maddie – she was super knowledgeable and gave me lots of tips and tricks to glowing skin.

Love Everything About this Place

I just love everything about this place! It is a little pricey but it’s really worth it if you want to see real results. Maddie knows my skin better than I do and knows every procedure & product inside and out. I’d highly recommend it to anyone that is looking to take their beauty regimen to the next level.

Definitely 5 star!

Tru Glo Medspa is top notch. The office is beautiful with calm aura. Gretchen is always so helpful and knowledgeable. Stacey Blake, who has performed multiple treatments on my face from filler, Botox, Dysport, BBL and laser peels, is just amazing. She is so gentle handed and always making sure you are okay during procedures. She has even went the extra mile to assist me addressing a skin issue which I didn’t even mentioned because I didn’t think there was much I could do about it. With her help I have cleared up an issue which was really affecting my daily life and I am so thankful for her help. After having had Tru Glo’s amazing staff I would never even consider going anywhere else ever for my cosmetic needs. Definitely 5 star!

Erica M

Highly Recommend

Highly recommend TruGlo MedSpa for all laser aesthetics. Stacy Blake, over 30yrs of experience and beautiful herself, transformed my face with just one HALO treatment($1600) as seen in my before and after pictures below. Dr Gardner(best plastic surgeon in all of South Florida) owns TruGlo MedSpa.

I had consultations with all of the top doctors in South Florida; Naples, Coral Gables, Palm Beach, Boca Raton and Jupiter. I decided to go with Dr Gardner & TruGlo MedSpa. Afterwards I went back to the same top plastic surgeons who complimented Gardner’s work.
