Ultherapy – A Lift and Tightening Treatment that Works

Are you looking for a procedure to give the appearance of a more youthful looking neck? Or, are you looking for a way to lift your eyebrows and chin and eliminate the wrinkles on your chest? All without going under the knife? Then, Ultherapy Uplifting Ultrasound could be the perfect treatment for you.

Ultherapy is the first non-invasive, FDA-cleared treatment to lift the chin, brow, and neck and to improve wrinkles and lines on the chest area.  For three years in a row, the treatment has earned a Best of Beauty Award by NewBeauty editors and readers and has a 90% patient satisfaction rating in clinical studies.

How does Ultherapy work?

Ultherapy delivers focused ultrasound energy clear down to the skin’s foundational layer, without disturbing the surface layer of the skin. The energy can work as deep as that of a surgeon during a face-lift to stimulate collagen production and lift and tighten the skin. More than one treatment may be necessary for optimal results.

How can we prove that Ultherapy really works?

Ultherapy does indeed work, and the beauty of the treatment is the visible proof. Additionally, for someone with collagen depletion, Ultherapy can take pictures all the way to the bone, which means that a picture taken at the time of treatment can be compared to another taken four to six months down the road to prove it’s working and stimulating collagen. This Ultherapy photography capability makes it different than any other treatment on the market.

Is Ultherapy safe?

At DermaTouch RN, Ultherapy treatment has proven safe and effective for clients. Capturing good photographs can help show the improved results over time.

Get more bang for your buck with Ultherapy adjunct treatments.

A reputable MedSpa will work with you to develop a personal treatment plan to meet all of your specific skin care needs. For optimal Ultherapy results, many patients combine the treatment with other treatments for a comprehensive skincare treatment program. For example, Ultherapy can lift and tighten the skin at very deep layers. When combined with the SkinPen® treatment–which improves skin texture and the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the superficial layer of the skin–patients can target both the deep layers and the superficial layers of the skin for optimal results. Fillers can also be a great adjunct to Ultherapy treatments, depending on the area of the face being treated. At many MedSpas, like DermaTouch RN, you get more bang for your buck when you consider adjunct treatments as part of a complete skincare program.

Innovative SculpSure Treatment for Permanent Fat Loss

Want to get rid of that hard-to-lose fat around your abdomen and flank areas? Look no further than SculpSure, an innovative technology developed by Cynosure. Per Cynosure’s website, “SculpSure is the world’s first FDA-cleared laser treatment for non-invasive lipolysis of the flanks and abdomen. It’s a state-of-the-art, controlled light-based technology, ideal for patients looking to get rid of stubborn fat.”

How does SculpSure work?

SculpSure works when paddles are placed on the target area to melt away subcutaneous fat. This process sculpts and defines areas where it’s difficult to lose fat. Once the fat cells are melted away, they are permanently removed from the body. Visceral fat, the fat the protects your organs, is left untouched.

What can I expect during a SculpSure treatment?

The goal is to “treat to complete” with SculpSure by getting rid of up to 25 percent of the subcutaneous fat per treatment from that treatment area. Though some only need one treatment to see the results they desire, most need two.

SculpSure treatments are very comfortable and tolerable because the process transmits waves of heat and coolness onto the patient’s skin. Treatment time is only 25 minutes and there’s no downtime, so you can even stop in on your lunch break for a treatment.

What’s the difference between SculpSure and CoolSculpting?

There are two major differences between CoolSculpting and SculpSure that you need to be aware of. First, CoolSculpting is FDA approved, but unlike SculpSure, it never received an indication from the FDA–an indication is important and indicates that the device is effective in what it was created to treat; in other words, it’s been proven to work.

Second, CoolSculpting works by sucking tissue into a suction cup, which can leave divets in the skin, similar to lipo-suction. SculpSure, on the other hand, uses heat to melt away fat, leaving a much smoother appearance.

SculpSure is Not Weight Loss.

SculpSure is fat loss, not weight loss. The number of fat cells we’re born with doesn’t change over time. However, when you gain or lose weight, the size of your fat cells change. With SculpSure, fat cells are eliminated for good–you’ll be more sculpted, but you won’t necessarily lose weight. Also, if you do gain weight, you’ll gain weight in the deeper layer of fat cells because the superficial layer has been removed with the SculpSure process.

Find a reputable and safe facility for treatment.

When you’re looking for a MedSpa for your fat loss treatment, be sure to do your homework and make sure the facility you’re working with maintains legal practices and has a track record of positive results. For more information about legal vs. illegal practices, read our blog, “Legal vs. Illegal Practices: Do You Know Who is Injecting You?”

Safely Remove Those Nasty Warts with Laser Technology!

If you are someone who has ever had or has a wart or warts, especially if they’re visible to others, then you know how uncomfortable and embarrassing they can be. Though they typically don’t cause any pain, they are often rough to the touch, and depending on where they’re located, they can get in the way of daily activities (like having one on your thumb or ring finger). Warts can impact individuals of all ages, from young children to elderly adults.

What causes warts? Are they contagious?

Warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). When the virus infects the top layer of the skin, or

common wart

epidermis, a wart will appear. Warts are not cancerous but are contagious. They can be spread by contact with the wart or something that came in contact with it. Though they are typically rough and skin-colored, they can also be smooth, flat, and darker in color.

Are there different types of warts?

Yes, there are a few different types of warts that vary in size, how they look, and grow on different parts of the body.

Common warts

Common warts often grow on the fingers, back of the hands, and around the nails. They often feel like rough bumps and can have little black dots that look like seeds.

Plantar warts

Plantar warts can grow in clusters, are often flat or grow inward with black dots, and mostly grow on the soles of the feet. They often hurt when you walk on them.

Flat warts

Flat warts are typically smoother and smaller than other warts and often grow in groups of 20 to 100. They can occur anywhere on the body, though men often get them in the beard area, women on their legs, and children on their face.

Filiform warts

Filiform warts stick out like long threads and typically grow quickly around the eyes, mouth, and nose.

How can you treat warts?

Warts sometimes go away on their own, or if they’re hidden and not bothersome, then one might choose to leave them alone. Many, however, prefer to have them removed. With some treatments, there’s a risk of warts returning after removal. At DermaTouch RN, however, we first remove the hard overgrowth of epithelial cells with the Sciton Ablative Laser. Patients then return two weeks later for us to utilize the 532nm Aura Laser to target the vascular system that was hijacked by the virus. With the 532nm Aura Laser, the blood supply is cut off from the wart, and after this occurs, the wart will not grow back.

How can you prevent warts from spreading?

As mentioned earlier, warts are contagious and can spread. Per the American Academy of Dermatology, “To prevent warts from spreading, dermatologists recommend the following: Do not pick or scratch at warts. Wear flip-flops or pool shoes in public showers, locker rooms, and pool areas. Do not touch someone’s wart. Keep foot warts dry, as moisture tends to allow warts to spread.”

Why DermaTouch RN vs. a dermatologist or doctor’s office?

MedSpas like DermaTouch RN treat many of the same skin conditions that Dermatologists and doctor’s offices treat, and they do so at a fraction of the cost. To find a reputable MedSpa, do your research and look for a facility backed by reputable practitioners and positive reviews for the treatment that you’re seeking.

Successfully Remove Your Skin Tags with Laser Technology

skin tag or soft fibroma usually occurs at neck, face, armpits and body

Skin tags—extremely common, small skin growths—are typically harmless. However, if you have any of these growths on your skin, you might find them annoying or embarrassing to deal with. They often occur on the eyelids, under the breasts, in groin folds, under armpits, and on the neck.

What causes Skin Tags?

Some people have just one or a few skin tags, whereas others could have a hundred of them. The cause of skin tags is unclear, though obesity does seem to be a factor. However, skin tags can occur on people of all types and tend to increase in number as we age, with middle-aged and older being impacted the most.

How can you treat Skin Tags?

At some point in their life, almost everyone will develop a skin tag. Similar to how we treat Seborrheic keratosis, we use the 532nm Aura Laser at DermaTouch RN. Some of the benefits of using the 532 is that the healing time, bleeding, and pain are all minimized because laser light seals and sterilizes tissue as it cuts. The laser works when an intense beam of light burns and destroys the growth. By treating the peduncle (stem) of the skin tags, the aura laser targets the vascular system causing the skin tag to fall off within a week. The growth rarely grows back, making it the best laser choice for such procedures. Most patients experience little pain and no downtime, and when necessary, a topical anesthetic can be used to numb the area.

Why DermaTouch RN vs. a Doctor’s office?

DermaTouch RN and similar facilities can treat many of the same skin conditions that Dermatologists treat with similar results at a fraction of the cost. Look for a MedSpa, like DermaTouch RN, backed by positive reviews and a long track record for treating the condition you need help with.
