Celebrate Christmas in July at DermaTouch RN!

It might be hot outside, and we might not be seeing or feeling Christmas weather for another six months, but that doesn’t mean you need to wait six more months to treat yourself!

If you’ve considered cosmetic treatments or you need a touch-up from a previous service, it’s always a great time to stop in at DermaTouch RN. With our super low prices on everything from fillers to Botox to laser treatments, we can help you look and feel your best all year round. And even better, you’ll receive the professionalism of an experienced practitioner who will work with you to develop a personalized plan to address all of your skincare and cosmetic needs.

Reduce fat with SculpSure.

If you have fat you’ve been trying to get rid of in those hard-to-lose places, like on the tummy and sides (aka “love handles”), SculpSure is for you! SculpSure is a non-invasive, light-based body contouring treatment that helps to reduce fat cells by up to 24 percent. Once the cells are eliminated, they’re gone for good!

Turn back the hands of time with Laser Resurfacing, Fillers, and Botox.

We have some of the best pricing on Dermal Fillers, such as Juvederm and Voluma, as well as Botox. Botox will help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes. Fillers can help reduce the appearance of lines around the mouth, as well as fill in areas (like the nasolabial folds)  to help the face appear fuller and more youthful.

Feel good from the inside out with Bio-Identical Hormones.

Health starts from the inside out, which is why we offer Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy. Our hormone levels often decrease as we age, which can cause unwelcome side effects, such as fatigue and mood swings. Replacing those hormones with Bio-Identical hormones will help to reduce those unwanted side effects. We use BioTE hormones at DermaTouch RN, a brand name people have come to know and trust.

Get that glow with Chemical Peels.

Chemical peels are a more aggressive facial that helps to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduce sun damage, reduce acne scarring, and helps the face look more youthful and supple in general. We use SkinMedica Peels and Vi Aesthetics Peels to serve our patients at DermaTouch RN.

Stop in or contact us today for a free consultation and find out what other services and treatments plans we offer, like tattoo removal and laser hair removal, and check out our extensive line of skin care from some of the best companies in the industry, such as SkinMedica and Obagi!

With our low prices, great monthly specials, and proven results, you can’t go wrong by addressing your skin care concerns and cosmetics needs at DermaTouch RN today.

Celebrate National Women’s Health Week with DermaTouch RN!    

With National Women’s Health Week (May 14-20) just around the corner, we wanted to help women celebrate by focusing on our partnership to support overall health and well-being at DermaTouch RN! Per the Government Women’s Health website, “National Women’s Health Week is an observance led by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women’s Health. The goal is to empower women to make their health a priority. The week also serves as a time to encourage women to take steps to improve their health.”

Overall well-being starts on the inside; that’s our perspective at DermaTouch RN, at least.  This is why we offer products that address external skin and cosmetic concerns, in addition to what’s required to maintain health from the inside out. We’ve outlined some of the ways we support overall well-being for women below.

BioTE Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Balanced Hormones

Hormones help to regulate much of our body’s systems, which in turn means that balanced hormones are essential for optimal health. As we age, naturally occurring hormones levels can drop, which often results in symptoms like weight gain, sleep concerns, mood swings, low energy, hair loss, and more. Fortunately, there is hormone replacement therapy for those who need it.

After extensive research, we offer BioTE Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy to our patients at DermaTouch RN. BioTE offers “the balance of nature and science with extraordinary benefits!”  We share more about why we love BioTE in “BioTE Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Overall Well-being.”

Skin Care Treatments that Offer Results

We offer a variety of skin care and cosmetic services to treat a number of skin conditions and concerns. Our treatments range anywhere from chemical peels and fillers (Juvederm, Voluma, Radiesse, etc.) to Botox and laser resurfacing to skin needling and body contouring. We also offer tattoo removal, eyelash treatments, and treat several skin conditions like melasma, warts, rosacea, and Seborrheic Keratoses.

Premium Products for Skin Health

Skin health is dependent on a good skin care regimen. At DermaTouch RN, we offer products that are backed by proven results and address skin care concerns such as acne, premature aging, and sun damage. We are thrilled to offer top-of-the-line skin care products backed by science from companies such as SkinMedica and Obagi Medical Products, Inc.

The Body Contouring Conversation Heats Up! (Part 3)

We’ve been discussing these past few weeks one of the hottest body sculpting treatments available, nonsurgical body contouring SculpSure® developed by CynoSure.  In this final part of the discussion, we’ll compare the differences between SculpSure and CoolSculpting® in permanently eliminating excess fat cells (adipose fat) in those stubborn areas – for both men and women.sculpsure-non-invasive-body-contouring-atlanta

SculpSure

Known as the “25-minute body contouring” treatment, SculpSure leverages the expertise gained through the successful development and commercial launch of such products as SmartLipo™ and Cellulaze™.

During the SculpSure non-invasive lipolysis procedure, the adipose tissue is heated to a temperature of between 42° and 47° C (107.6° to 116.6° F), using a hyperthermic laser – a hands-free device with a flexible applicator designed to treat multiple areas of the body. The 1060 nm wavelength’s specific affinity for adipose tissue, coupled with minimal absorption in the dermis, allows SculpSure to efficiently treat target areas in just 25 minutes. There is no damage to the dermal tissue and Contact Cooling is applied for the patient’s comfort. The fat cells are then naturally expelled from the body.

Unlike weight loss, in which fat cells remain and have the potential to assume position at any time in those vulnerable areas, the fat cells that are destroyed during the SculpSure procedure are permanently eliminated from the body.

There is no downtime and results are visible in as little as six weeks, with optimal results in just 12 weeks. The Sculpsure procedure has a 24% fat reduction rate of success and a 90% satisfaction rate among patients (1,2).

Unlike CoolSculpting, which is limited to only certain skin types, the light-based technology of SculpSure can be used on all skin types.

In abstracts presented at the 2015 annual conference of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery, clinical data from approximately 100 subjects treated with SculpSure in multicenter studies at two U.S. sites revealed that researchers saw a statistically significant reduction in adipose layer thickness, six and 12 weeks post-treatment (2,3).

SculpSure is intended for individuals with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or less.

CoolSculpting

The process of CoolSculpting entails the delivery of “controlled cooling,” known as Cryolipolysis®, to the fat cells beneath the skin. A gel pad and applicator are placed on the target area and the fat cells are essentially frozen.  The cells then die and are naturally eliminated from the body over time. While CoolSculpting targets specific areas including the flank/side, the stomach, and the outer and inner thigh, it is restricted in use – limited by skin type.

Patients undergoing a CoolSculpting procedure may experience pulling, tugging or pinching of the applicator and a lingering “dimpling” affect may be visible for some time following a session. Bruising or redness at the site of the applicator have also been reported, though are eventually diminished. Most patients require more than one CoolSculpting treatment, with visible results in approximately three to six weeks.

The Body Contouring Conversation Heats Up! (Part 2)

We recently introduced two of the newest nonsurgical body contouring procedures available for getting swimsuit ready and year round svelte; Cynosure’s SculpSure® and CoolSculpting®. Proving effective in permanently eliminating excess fat cells (adipose fat) in stubborn areas for both men and women, these procedures are much less invasive than surgery and provide lasting results.

Head to head comparison between SculpSure and CoolSculpting.

 

In Part 2 of this discussion, we focus on the primary differences between the two technologies and how they stand up to one another, including the amount of time on the market with FDA-clearance and the fat eliminating technology used – heat versus cold.

Among the first body contouring procedures to receive FDA-clearance and scientifically report positive patient outcomes, SculpSure uses light-based technology, a whole new approach to non-invasive lipolysis (heat) using a hyperthermic laser.

CoolSculpting technology entails the delivery of “controlled cooling” to the fat cells underneath the skin using Cryolipolysis (cold).  Check out the “Head to Head” video comparing the two treatments. View Head to Head Video

In Part 3 of our Body Contouring discussion, we’ll further examine these technologies.

The Body Contouring Conversation

Body Contouring Conversation, Part I

We work out, weigh and show incredible restraint to achieve a physical appearance that mirrors what we feel.  But even the best exercise efforts can still fall short in chiseling out the contours we seek.

Young women in exercise outfit measuring waist with tape measure

Fitness trainers explain that it’s simply not possible to “spot train” – cardio helps achieve weight loss, weights and resistance training tone and build muscle, while stretching lengthens and further refines them. But, no gym can deliver a whittled waist, toned tummy, and “slim fit” thighs to order.

For many simply striving for that next level just barely out of reach, liposuction is too drastic a step to take.  So, short of surgery, what options do we have?

Fortunately, there are a number of nonsurgical body contouring procedures proving the perfect final touch to the efforts we put in.  The key is determining which is the right fit for you.

Many promising procedures have cropped up over the past several years, adding to the service offerings of dermatologists, gynecologists and a range of both qualified and unqualified healthcare providers alike.

As the largest organ of the human body, our skin and its long term care should be given the same careful consideration as any other vital organ.  Those specializing in the field of skin care are uniquely focused on the health and preservation of our skin and the body it covers, dedicating their time to learning about and training on some of the newest products and procedures available in aesthetics. Experience is key. www.dermatouchrn.com
