Get Rid of Ingrown Hairs and Shaving Bumps for Good!

You probably don’t give a lot of thought to shaving bumps, or their official name (Pseudo Folliculitis or PFB), unless you have one or get them frequently. We see patients who have this issue at DermaTouch RN, and fortunately, we have the technology to make shaving bumps and ingrown hairs history!

What causes ingrown hairs or shaving bumps (PFB)?

Shaving bumps are caused by a foreign body inflammatory reaction involving papules and pustules. The pathogenesis of PFB is caused by:

  1. Extrafollicular penetration that occurs when hair reenters the skin after a close shave.
  2. Transfollicular penetration that occurs when the sharp tip of a growing hair pierces the follicle wall after a close shave.

Laser hair removal is the best way to get rid of Shaving Bumps and Ingrown Hairs!

DermaTouch, RN provides the most advanced FDA approved laser technology to help reduce and eliminate Pseudo Folliculitis (PFB), aka shaving bumps. This advanced technology allows us to treat all ethnic groups and skin types safely and effectively in the Houston, TX area.

How does Laser Hair Removal Work?

The light of the laser is absorbed by pigment in actively growing hair. this process damages the hair follicle, resulting in the absence or re-growth. The average client sees at least a 75% short-term reduction of shaving bumps within two weeks after just one or two treatments.

How many treatments will I need for optimal results?

Because only a portion of your hair is in the active phase at the time of treatment, a series of treatments is recommended for permanent hair removal. Typically, 6 to 8 treatments will be required for long-term effects. Treatments are spaced 4 to 12 weeks apart depending on the anatomical position of the hair and hair growth cycles.

How long does laser hair removal last?

Typically, laser hair removal is permanent. One or two annual touch-up treatments may be required after completing the initial treatment series.

At DermaTouch RN, we have very competitive pricing on Laser Hair Removal packages in Houston. Contact us today to find out how we can help you get rid of shaving bumps for good!

Taking Care of Yourself (and Your Skin) During a Hurricane

With hurricane season among us in Houston, and Hurricane Harvey lurking and ready to make landfall this weekend, we want to ensure your safety here at DermaTouch RN. Personal safety is first, of course. So once you have that covered, we want you to be able to take care of that lovely skin, as well!

Per weather stations, Hurricane Harvey is expected to hit Texas as a Category 3 storm, one of the worst since 1999’s Hurricane Bret, Friday evening into early Saturday. Below are some tips to keep you and your family (and your skin) healthy and safe this weekend and throughout the hurricane season.

Remain calm: Getting stressed doesn’t help anyone when a hurricane arrives. It impacts your ability to function and your overall health, including your skin. Do what you can to prepare beforehand so you can more easily remain calm during the storm.

Keep fresh water handy: Water is important for hydration and cleanliness. Potable water supplies can get contaminated when it rains for days, so put pots out to collect water and keep water pots close to where you need it, like in the bathroom to flush the toilet and wash your hands. Not to mention, you need fresh water to drink!

Wash anything and everything: If you don’t have electricity for days or weeks, then you’ll want to ensure your home, laundry, pets and yourself are squeaky clean before the storm hits.

Be ready if the lights go out: Stock up on candles, lighters, and flashlights and have them handy and easily available if the lights go out, including by sinks to properly wash your face and hands.

Go to the ATM: Before the storm hits, get plenty of cash out of the bank so you have it on hand when you need it. When the electricity goes out, the only option to pay for items might be cash due to credit card machines being down, etc.

Have board games handy: To keep yourself and the children entertained, have board games or cards available with a couple flashlights close by. This will help pass the time and take your mind off the storm.

Charge your personal devices: Charge all of your personal devices, such as a computer, cell phone, notepad, and so on, prior to the storm. When the electricity goes out, use only one device at a time so you have means of communication with the outside world for a longer period of time.

These are just a few tips to support you and your family during a hurricane. For more information, do an online search for “hurricane safety.”

Contact us at DermaTouch RN if you have any questions about our hours or appointments during the storm. We wish you and your family a safe and dry weekend!

Do you have Submental Fullness (aka “Double Chin”)?

Submental fullness, also referred to as “Double Chin,” can be bothersome to those who see it every day when they look in the mirror. It can be caused by aging, genetics, or weight gain, and no matter how much you exercise, it still might not go away. Kybella is a treatment used by many healthcare professionals to help their clients and patients get rid of the submental fat that causes submental fullness.

If you’re bothered by excessive fat under the chin, you’re not alone.

As Allergan—the producers of Kybella—puts it on the website,  “Maybe it’s something you’ve had your whole life, something that developed over the years, or something you noticed recently.” The site also shares that, according to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), 67 percent of people surveyed are bothered by the fat beneath their chin, and are often “just as bothered by submental fullness as they are by lines and wrinkles around and under their eyes.”

Is Kybella right for you?

Regardless of why you have it, if getting rid of your double chin is a top priority, then Kybella might be a good option for you. When injected into the fat under the chin, Kybella destroys unwanted fat cells. The destroyed cells are then naturally eliminated from the body, and they’re gone for good. Many see results after just one treatment, with an average of two to four treatments needed for desired results. The average number of injections per treatment ranges from 15 to 30. Results can last for years to come with a good treatment protocol.

5 Tips for Effective Summer Skin Care

It’s summer and it’s a great time of year to take vacations and spend more time outdoors. As with any changing of the season, it’s also a good time to check in and make sure you’re effectively taking care of your skin. The same treatment regimen might not work for our skin all year round due to the changing of the weather and our body’s response to that change. Below are some tips to consider from DermaTouch RN of Texas to ensure you’re effectively taking care of your skin during the summer.

  1. Drink plenty of water! Many of us are outdoors more during the summer, and as lovely as the sun is, the heat can cause us to become dehydrated, causing dry and ruddy skin, along with potential dizziness and other physical symptoms. Even in areas like Houston, TX with high humidity, you still run the risk of dehydration.
  2. Hydrate the skin. In addition to drinking water, another way to ensure your skin is hydrated as much as possible is using a hydrating product like SkinMedica’s HA5, a Hyaluronic Acid product that effectively hydrates the skin. Hyaluronic Acid is our skin’s natural hydrator, and it decreases as we age. Replenishing it with a great product like HA5 is a great step to any skin care regimen.
  3. Re-apply over and over. It’s wise to apply sunscreen all year round (especially to the face), and especially during the summer when you’re outdoors for longer periods of time. Reapply frequently, especially after you’ve been sweating or swimming. With all the many formulas available today, you can select a sunscreen that’s suitable for your skin type, from oil free to anti-aging.
  4. Use the right skin care products for your skin and season. Our skin often requires different treatments during different seasons of the year. In the winter, we might need more moisturizing, for example, whereas in the summer, we might need something for acne prone skin or oil free. Regardless, using high-quality skin care products with proven results is a must for both preventative and reactive skin care. SkinMedica and Obagi are a couple product lines we offer at DermaTouch RN.
  5. Repair damaged skin. You’ve been out in the sun without sunscreen, and the damage is already done. It happens. Now it’s time to use a skin care product high in soothing botanicals or aloe vera gel that will heal without irritating the skin. You can also consider laser treatments to remove and repair sun damage. We offer a variety of laser treatment plans at DermaTouch RN.

Contact us today to set up your free consultation to check out our skin care products and services. We are here to support you in taking care of your skin in the best way possible during the summer months.
