What’s all the Hype about the New diVa Treatment?

The diVa is a new and innovative treatment that’s “helping women feel more like their vital, sensual selves” again. As we age, it’s no secret that our vaginal tissue is impacted in ways that we’re not so thrilled about. Sciton’s diVa uses their JOULE platform and the hybrid technology developed for Halo—the world’s first and only Hybrid Fractional Laser— to support and treat woman’s most intimate challenges.

What causes a decline in women’s vaginal health?

A decline in vaginal health is typically caused by two major events: Childbirth and Reduced Estrogen Levels.

Childbirth stretches the vaginal canal and surrounding tissues. The body’s own healing process takes effect to repair most of the effects of childbirth, though the tissue might not return to the same state as prior to childbirth. The vaginal walls, perineum, and surrounding tissues can be damaged due to the stretching, which can lead to vaginal health and function decline.

Menopause can lead to reduced estrogen production by the ovaries. This can lead to drying, thinning and inflammation of the vaginal walls, which might decrease healthy vaginal function for women. Chemotherapy, breastfeeding and a hysterectomy can also have similar effects.

How does the diVa work?

The diVa delivers both non-ablative and ablative wavelengths to the same microscopic treatment zone. It’s the only device available that includes High Precision Automation (HPA) technology to ensure the safest and best treatment outcome for patients and predictability for the operator.  This unique ability to “provide customizable treatments based on the patient’s vaginal health concerns” allows operators to customize treatments based on a patient’s symptoms, age and desired results.

How many treatments will I need?

The patient testimonials speak wonders as to how well diVa works. Many patients felt results after just one treatment, though more is often recommended for desired results. Your provider should work with you to develop the best treatment plan for your optimal results.

We’re excited to bring the diVa treatments to our DermaTouch RN clients. We also offer O-Shot and bioTE hormone replacement therapy to support women’s health and wellbeing.

Contact us today to find out more about the diVa treatment and schedule an appointment.

DermaTouch RN Now Offers Sciton’s Halo Treatment!

DermaTouch RN is excited to bring Sciton’s Halo Treatment to our clients. If you’re tired of seeing sun spots, fine lines, and lack of luster in your skin, then the Halo treatment could be for you!

What does a Halo treatment do for your skin?

Per the official Halo website, “Over time, your skin can lose its youthful glow due to sun exposure and your body’s natural aging process. As a result, your body may develop sun spots, fine lines, and loses that natural healthy glow. Previous lasers couldn’t effectively remove this damage, because the treatment was either too shallow or too deep. Halo eliminates years of damage by precisely targeting the right depth. Halo restores the luminous glow you had when you were younger.”

What are some of the benefits of the Halo technology?

Aside from the healthy glow you’ll receive with the Halo technology, you can also look forward to:

  • Customizable treatment to precisely target skin damage
  • Improvement in the appearance of tone, texture, fine lines* and wrinkles
  • Reduces pore size
  • Flexibility in treatment levels
  • Great results with minimal downtime

What can I expect during treatment?

Thirty minutes to an hour before the treatment your clinician may place a topical anesthetic on your skin to reduce the sensation during the procedure. The area will be measured with motion tracking technology to ensure the area is treated evenly. The clinician will treat each measured section by uniformly rolling the Halo handpiece over the skin until the system recognizes the treatment is complete.

What types of results can I expect?

To see real results from real patients, visit the Halo Testimonial Page. You’ll receive great results with little downtime!

Call us today to schedule your free consultation and take a step towards having glowing skin that you’ll love!

A Slimmer You for the Holidays with SculpSure!

Are you struggling to get rid of fat under your chin and in your flank and abdomen areas? You know, that hard-to-lose fat that diet and exercise don’t seem to help? Then SculpSure might be the perfect treatment for you. SculpSure is the first FDA-cleared laser treatment for lipolysis of the abdomen, back, thighs, flanks, and under the chin without the need for surgery!

SculpSure for Permanent Fat Loss

SculpSure melts away subcutaneous fat while your visceral fat that protects the organs is untouched using state-of-the-art, controlled light-based technology.  It’s possible to get rid of up to 25% of the subcutaneous fat per treatment with SculpSure, and once the fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good! As long as one maintains a healthy lifestyle, he or she should be able to maintain the results over a long period of time. If one does gain weight, you do gain weight, it will be in the deeper layer of fat cells because the superficial layer is removed with SculpSure.

How many SculpSure treatments will I need?

Some only need one treatment to achieve desired results, though most need two or more. Results vary based on the number of treatments, individual chemistry, and treatment area.

SculpSure treatments only take about 25  minutes per treatment area with no downtime after treatment. The treatment is reported by patients to be very comfortable and tolerable because the process transmits waves of coolness and heat onto the patient’s skin.

What’s the difference between SculpSure and CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is FDA approved, but unlike SculpSure, it never received an indication from the FDA–an indication is important and indicates the device is safe to use on a human being.

CoolSculpting can leave dips or small pockets in the skin, similar to liposuction, due to a sucking action that is used during treatment. SculpSure uses heat to melt away fat, which allows for a smoother appearance after treatment.

Melt fat away with SculpSure just in time for the holidays!

SculpSure is the perfect treatment to help you get rid of that hard-to-lose fat in your abdomen, back, thigh, and flank areas or under your chin, so you can say goodbye to that muffin top and those love handles, as well as the double-chin, all in time for the holidays! Plus, we’re also offering a SculpSure special for the month of October: One session is only $675 (4 applicators) and 2 sessions (8 applicators) is only $1000; so, now’s the perfect time to book and save money, too!

DermaTouch RN is backed by 11 years of success, so call today for your free consultation to find out if SculpSure is right for you!

Lift and Tighten with Ultherapy (Christie Brinkley did!)

As we age, we often look for ways to turn back time without going under the knife. The trick is finding cosmetic solutions that live up to the hype and results they promise.

Enter Ultherapy.

Ultherapy is the first non-invasive FDA-cleared treatment to lift the neck, brow, chin and improve lines and wrinkles on the chest. The treatment is so popular that it has a 90% patient satisfaction rating in clinical studies and earned a Best of Beauty Award by NewBeauty editors and readers. Not to mention, Christie Brinkley recently became the spokesperson for Ultherapy, admitting she used the treatment for her neck and décolletage.

In a recent People magazine article, Brinkley shared that her goal was “never to look different… But I’m almost 64. At a certain point, you might need a little something extra. When I look in the mirror, I want to feel like I look as good as I feel. And if you can have something done to feel more confident and better about yourself, then you feel like your face matches your spirit—and my spirit is enthusiastic and energetic.”

How does Ultherapy work?

Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to reach down deep into the skin’s foundational layer—as deep as a surgeon can work with plastic surgery—without disturbing the surface layer. The energy helps to stimulate collagen production and tighten and lift the skin over time.

There’s proof that Ultherapy really works!

With Ultherapy, one fabulous aspect of the treatment is the fact that pictures are taken that capture images all the way to the bone. This means that over time, additional pictures can be taken to show the improvement in collagen production, so there’s no denying the results! Most people need more than one treatment to see desired results, and results vary based on the individual, the area being treated, and the number of treatments.

Consider Ultherapy adjunct treatments to get the most out of your treatment.

With Ultherapy, a lot of patients see improved results when they combine the treatment with other adjunct treatments, such as the Skin Pen treatment that will improve skin texture and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the superficial layer of the skin (whereas Ultherapy works on the deeper layers). Depending on the area(s) being treated, dermal fillers can also be a great adjunct to Ultherapy treatments. At DermaTouch RN, you get more bang for your buck when you consider adjunct treatments and package deals.

Now’s the perfect time for Ultherapy with DermaTouch’s October special!

For the month of October, purchase an Ultherapy package and get a second package on a smaller area for 50% off!

DermaTouch RN is backed by 11 years of success and we’re still going strong. Call today for your free consultation to find out if Ultherapy is right for you!
