JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC to Say Bye-Bye to Nasolabial Folds in Houston

DermaTouch RN is excited to offer JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is the newest dermal filler in the Allergan line. It’s approved for injection into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds in adults over the age of 21. Allergan boasts that it’s the “First and Only Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Dermal Filler FDA Approved for the Correction of Moderate to Severe Wrinkles and Folds, such as Nasolabial Folds, That Lasts up to 18 Months.”

JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is proven to last for up to 18 months in clinical trial.

Fifty-nine percent of subjects that were injected with JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC in a US clinical trial saw improvement in moderate to severe nasolabial folds for up to 18 months. Eighty-two percent of patients were very satisfied at the six-month mark, with sixty-eight percent being very satisfied at the 18-month mark.

JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC utilizes VYCROSS technology.

Similar to JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC (FDA-approved for lip augmentation and correction of perioral rhytids) and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC (FDA-approved to increase volume lost due to aging in the cheek area), JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is created with Allergan’s VYCROSS®technology. The VYCROSS technology is a proprietary blend of varying molecular weights of hyaluronic acid, which supports the gel’s duration.

Is JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC right for you?

As with any filler, the right choice for you will depend on your needs, budget, and long-term goals. VOLLURE is great for the nasolabial fold area, and could also be used off-label in other areas. At the same time, another filler, like JUVEDERM ULTRA PLUS, might be better for you, depending on the severity of your folds and other areas of your face that might need to be filled.

Injecting fillers is an art in and of itself. The injector you’re working with should take the time to educate you and provide you with options based on your cosmetic goals. With a wide range of fillers available these days, it’s easier than ever to receive a truly tailored approach with the right fillers in the right areas of the face.

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!

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.
