What is Botox?

Botox has been on the market for cosmetic use since 2002. Botox is a Neurotoxins — Botulinum Type A—that is used to relax muscles that cause crow’s feet and frown lines on the forehead.

How long does it take to see effects of Botox?

The initial effects of Botox can be seen within the first 5 days of treatment, with the full effect seen within 10 to 12 days. It can last for up to 6 months in some patients. Results vary based on area treated, the patient’s chemistry, and the number of units used.

The skill of the injector is important!

What’s most important in getting Botox treatment is finding a skilled injector who understands face structure and how Botox function in the body. This will help to reduce the possibility of any unwanted side effects and increase the chances of you getting the results you desire. At DermaTouch RN, we have injected literally 1000s of vials of Botox into patients. We are confident in the results our practitioners provide.

For more information on Botox, refer to our Botox Q&A.

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.

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.

Getting Wedding Ready to Look Your Best (Within Four Months or Less)!

It’s that time of year. Weddings are in the air! If you’re getting married in the near future, you, of course, want to look and feel your best for what’s considered to be one of the most important days of your life! Or, maybe you’re the mother or the bride or groom, and you too, want to look your best. At DermaTouch RN, we’re here to help with our pre-wedding suggestions that we’ve outlined below. You’ll be able to show up for the big day with your head held high!

More than four months out:

If you still have some time before the big day arises, consider Ultherapy to lift the chin, neck and brow area, while also smoothing the lines on the chest. Ultherapy is a way to lift without going under the knife. This FDA-approved treatment is non-invasive and supports the body in producing and regenerating collagen production through the use of ultrasound. One great thing about Ultherapy is the images that are taken before and after treatment that prove it’s working!

It’s can take two to three months for maximum results to appear, so you want to come in at least four months before the wedding day for a consultation and treatment.

Two to four months out:

Facials and Chemical Peels

We all want that beautiful glow, especially on our wedding day. Facials are great skin treatments to get rid of skin impurities to refine and hydrate the skin. Chemical Peels are a more intense treatment to consider, as well. The appearance of fine lines, acne, rosacea, and overall skin texture and tone can be improved with facials and chemical peels. It often takes a series of facials or peels for maximum results, which is why you want to come in at least two to four months out (four is best) to allow time between each treatment.

Botox

Get rid of those fine lines on the forehead and crows feet around the eyes with Botox before the big day. It can take up to a week for Botox to work, and results last four to six months, depending on the patient, areas treated, and the number of units used. You want to allow enough time for touch-ups, so at least a month out is best for Botox.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers like Juvederm and Voluma can help add volume to the face and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, as well as the depth of nasolabial folds. To allow for touch-ups and to get the results you’re looking for over time, you want to have fillers injected at least two to three months out, if not more. It can take more filler than one realizes for desired results, which is also why from a budget perspective, giving yourself more time is helpful.

At DermaTouch RN, we love helping the bride-to-be and mother-of-the-bride (or groom) feel and look their best. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation to put a game plan together to help you prep for your big day. So, when the big day comes, you’ll be able to walk into the room with confidence!

Celebrate Men’s Health Month at DermaTouch RN!

June is Men’s Health Month, a month “anchored by a Congressional health education program” and  “celebrated across the country with screenings, health fairs, media appearances, and other health education and outreach activities,” per the organization’s website.

Why Men’s Health Month?

Per the Men’s Health Month website, “The purpose of Men’s Health Month is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys. This month gives health care provider, public policy makers, the media, and individuals an opportunity to encourage men and boys to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury. The response has been overwhelming with thousands of awareness activities in the USA and around the globe.”

Of course, men’s health should be a focus all-year-through, not just in June, though bringing awareness to it for an entire month is a positive thing to do given our busy lives these days. At DermaTouch RN, we support events that truly support health and well-being, and Men’s Health Month does that.

Celebrate Men’s Health Month with DermaTouch RN.

Many believe MedSpas and aesthetic services are for women only, though we see more and more men walk through our doors every week. Men care about their appearance as much as women do in many cases, and when men feel good about how they look, it shows.

At DermaTouch RN, we’re also about feeling good from the inside out, so we take a whole person and body approach to what we do. If you feel good on the inside, it shows on the outside. DermaTouch RN is here to support you in assessing what you need for overall health and well-being, including aesthetic and cosmetic services to address skin care concerns. We offer Botox and dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Voluma, as well as fat reduction treatments and services to treat skin conditions such as rosacea, skin tags, and more for men and women alike.

We also offer bio-identical hormones for overall well-being. As we age, our natural hormone levels often decrease, causing fatigue, mood swings, and other undesirable symptoms; for men, we offer Biote testosterone pellets to support healthy testosterone levels to help avoid those undesirable symptoms.

In the month of June, we’re also celebrating Father’s Day with a Botox special.  Those who bring the special man in their life to DermaTouch RN for Botox will receive 30 units of Botox at $9.00 a unit for him or herself and his or her special man. Plus, each individual will receive 10 free units of Botox!

Celebrate Men’s Health Month with us! Stop in or contact us today to set up a free consultation for yourself or the important men in your life to assess your and/or their health and skin care concerns and possible treatment options. Enjoy our Botox special while you’re at it!

Did You Know about the Dysport Rewards Program: ASPIRE Galderma Rewards?

In 2009, Dysport came on the market as the second FDA approved neurotoxin for cosmetic use, being the first competitor on the market for Botox. Many are familiar with Botox and its rewards program, and though many are now familiar with Dysport, they might not be familiar with the rewards program for purchasing Dysport—ASPIRE Galderma Rewards. In fact, when a customer signs up for the ASPIRE program, they instantly receive a $20 treatment certificate that can be used that same day!

What are the perks of the ASPIRE Galderma Rewards program?

As a member of the ASPIRE Galderma Rewards program, you’ll not only receive the $20 coupon upon sign-up, but you’ll also:

  • Earn points with every Galderma aesthetic treatment.
  • Earn points for referring friends.
  • Earn points for taking monthly beauty quizzes.
  • Redeem points for treatments, or cash back to use in Rewards Boutique, with different options from companies such as Nordstrom, Amazon, Sephora, and more.

How does Dysport Work?

Dysport is a neurotoxin — Botulinum Type A—used to relax muscles that cause frown lines on the forehead and crows feet around the eyes. In theory, effects can be seen within two to five days and last for four to six months. Results vary based on the treatment area, the number of units used, and the chemistry of the patient.

For more information about Dysport, refer to our Dysport Q&A.

Stop in or contact us today to set up your free consultation to determine if Dysport is right for you. You can even register for the ASPIRE Galderma Rewards program while you’re at it to receive your $20 instant coupon to use the same day!

Botox vs. Dysport – What’s the Difference?

You’re likely familiar with Botox, which has been on the market for cosmetic use since 2002. A few years later in 2009, Dysport was also FDA approved for cosmetic use, being the first competitor on the market for Botox. There is now an additional competitor to Botox and Dysport—Xeomin—that came on the market in the past few years, though at DermaTouch RN, we stick with Botox and Dysport because it allows us to pass more savings on to the client when we purchase more of a particular product from suppliers.

We have some clients who love and stick with Botox, and some who enjoy the effects of Dysport better. Everyone’s different and can respond differently to different treatments.

Botox and Dysport are very similar.

Both Botox and Dysport are Neurotoxins — Botulinum Type A—that is used to relax muscles that cause crows feet and frown lines on the forehead. They’ve both been in use for years and have similar effects when used on patients.

How do Dysport and Botox differ?

Dysport is a smaller molecule, requiring more of it to get a similar result to Botox. Dysport also costs less, though due to the requirement of more units, the cost saving compared to Botox is minimal.

Dysport has a slightly quicker effect that can be seen when compared to Botox (in theory, 2-5 days vs 4-6 days for Botox). Dysport also spreads to a wider area, or diffuses more, which can be a good thing in certain areas of the forehead, and not such a good thing in others areas. Each client is different as to how they respond to the treatment.

The skill of the injector is more important than the product used!

Whether you’re using  Dysport or Botox, what’s most important is finding a skilled injector who understands face structure and how each product functions in the body.  At DermaTouch RN, we have injected literally 1000s of vials of Dysport and Botox combined and are confident in the results our practitioners provide.

We believe educating our patients is a priority. For more information on Botox and Dysport, refer to our Botox Q&A and Dysport Q&A.

Botox and Facial Rejuvenation – It’s for Men, Too!

When we hear the terms cosmetic services, facial rejuvenation, and skin care, we often think of women and women’s services. However, more and more men are turning to DermaTouch RN in Houston for cosmetic services to support facial rejuvenation and skin care, as they tend to care as much about their skin and appearance as much as women do (even if they don’t like to show it)!

Botox for men can treat moderate to severe lines on the face.

Botox is one option to help turn back the hands of time for men. Botox treats moderate to severe lines on the forehead, around the eyes (crow’s feet), and between the brows. The muscles will relax and the lines will appear smoother within a week and last for up to six months. Results vary based on the individual needs and desired outcome, the areas treated, and the number of units used.

Dermal fillers and chemical peels are also great options for men.

Other cosmetic treatments for men include dermal fillers, such as Juvederm and Voluma, chemical peels, and skin care products. At DermaTouch RN, we offer skin care products from top-of-the-line brands, such as SkinMedica and Obagi Medical Products, Inc, as well as chemical peels from SkinMedica and VI Aesthetics. These products and services are backed by science and proven results.

Father’s Day is a great time to treat the men in your life.

With Father’s Day right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to treat that special father in your life with services from DermaTouch RN. Or, if you’re the father in the picture, take the time out to treat yourself to our products and services. You’ll be glad you did!

FDA-Approved Label vs. Off-Label: What Does It Mean?

34790757 - wrinkle reduction, the lion

If you’ve done research online for certain MedSpa or cosmetic procedures, you might have stumbled across the term “off-label.” In the US, prescription drugs require an FDA approval to be prescribed to patients, but these drugs are often prescribed for uses outside of the FDA approval guidelines for that drug—that’s where the term “off-label” comes from. Per WebMD, “Off-label” means the medication is being used in a manner not specified in the FDA’s approved packaging label, or insert.”

Why does the FDA allow off-label use?

After the FDA approves a drug—which is an extensive process where the FDA evaluates the safety, effectiveness, and indication for a drug—healthcare providers can generally prescribe the drug for an “off-label” use if they come to the determination that it is medically appropriate for a particular patient. A practitioner might choose to take such an approach if all other prescriptions have failed or if the patient would benefit from the off-label use, as is the case with many cosmetic and aesthetic procedures.

What cosmetic treatments are considered FDA approved vs. “off-label?”

Botox is FDA approved for the crows feet and glabella area (the area between the eyes) to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. However, Botox is often used in the forehead, nose, lip, jaw, chin, and underarm areas, as well, meaning these are “off-label” uses for the prescription.

Likewise, some fillers, such as Juvederm, Voluma, and Restylane, are FDA approved for use in the nasal labial folds, lips, and cheeks, but are also used in the chin, bridge of the nose, and under the eyes.

What do I need to consider if a practitioner uses “off-label” practices?

Many MedSpas and clinics offering cosmetic services will apply treatments and prescriptions for both their FDA-approved and “off-label” uses. Doing so serves the client by offering the benefits of a prescription, such as Botox or fillers, to fully meet the patient’s goals. What you want to be sure of is that you’re working with a reputable provider that knows what they’re doing and has conducted several of the procedures you’ve been prescribed. Read more about selecting a reputable provider by reviewing “What to Look for in a Reputable MedSpa and Cosmetic Services Establishments.”

DermaTouch RN just celebrated their 10 year anniversary and plan to be around for several more decades to come. Contact us today to determine the best approach to meet all of your skin care and cosmetic needs and to better understand “off-label” utilization!
