Renee Moschitto, DermaTouch RN Founder

To continue our blog series on skin care products offered at D ermaTouch RN that provide proven results, we thought it would be fun to share what our Founder, Renee Moschitto, had on her list of favorite products! Below, we’ve provided her top 5 products offered at DermaTouch RN and what their benefits are (which is why she loves them!).

SKINMEDICA TNS ESSENTIAL SERUM

SkinMedica‘s TNS Essential Serum is an “all-in-one rejuvenating treatment” that’s appropriate for all skin types. It helps to improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, skin texture and tone. As reported on SkinMedica’s site, 92% of those who tried TNS Essential Serum “rated their skin as looking healthier and more youthful, reduced the appearance of wrinkles, and enhanced skin texture and tone. Initial results occurred in 30 days with optimal results occurring in 90 days.” You can read more about this study by visiting the TNS Essential Serum page.

SKINMEDICA GLYPRO ANTIOXIDANT SERUM

SKINMEDICA AHA/BHA CLEANSER

SkinMedica’s AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser is appropriate for all skin types. It gently exfoliates and scrubs away dead skin cells to improve the appearance of skin texture and tone.

SKINMEDICA HA 5

HA5 is a Hyaluronic Acid skin hydrator. It is suitable for all skin types and helps reduce the appearance of aging by hydrating the skin.

APEX ENERGETICS OXICELL

Oxicell, by Apex Energetics, is a rejuvenating topical cream “formulated with glutathione and superoxide dismutase, along with alpha lipoic acid, CoQ10, S-adenosyl L-methionine, and vitamins B2 and B3.” These ingredients are powerful vitamins and antioxidants to help fight free radicals and reduce the signs of aging.

Dana’s Favorite Skin Care Products for Acne Prone Skin

Dana Mendoza, Practice Manager

As we explore some of our top skin care products at DermaTouch RN, we thought it made sense to share the products that some of our employees love to use. After all, they are walking, talking testimonials that our clients get to see every day!

Dana Mendoza, our Practice Manager, shared, “I have acne prone skin, so I use the Obagi Clenziderm acne products and SkinMedica’s Recovery Complex. I love the results!”

So, why does Dana rave about these products? We’ve shared more about them and how they work below.

OBAGI CLENZIDERM ACNE PRODUCTS

The OBAGI Medical brand has become a leader in the skin care industry. The high-quality ingredients provide benefits for the skin with results that are visible and last when used as directed.

Per Obagi’s website, the CLENZIderm M.D.™ System is a “three-step acne treatment with clinically proven benzoyl peroxide to help control adult acne for a clearer, healthier-looking complexion.” The system includes a 3-step process:

  1. Daily Care Foaming Cleanser: This cleanser contains 2% salicylic acid that unclogs pores while washing away dead skin cells. Calming menthol is included to help relieve and cool irritated skin.
  2. Pore Therapy: Pore Therapy contains 2% salicylic acid to unclog pores and remove dead skin cells. It preps the skin for the next step in the acne treatment.
  3. Therapeutic Lotion: This lotion contains 5% BPO. It’s a lightweight treatment “uniquely formulated to help clear acne.”

SKINMEDICA TNS  RECOVERY COMPLEX 

SkinMedica, by Allergan, is another trusted name in the skin care and cosmetic industry.

The TNS Recovery Complex is appropriate for all skin types and has been “clinically shown to reduce the appearance of skin discoloration and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.”

So if you have acne prone skin like Dana, stop in at DermaTouch RN today to see if these products are right for you! While you’re at it,  you can check out our other great products. Contact us today for a free consultation.

We Love SkinMedica’s HA5 (Hyaluronic Acid) Product at DermaTouch RN!

For our next series of blog posts, we want to share with you some of our favorite skin care products that we offer at DermaTouch RN. We focus on products backed by science and results. HA5, by SkinMedica, is one of those products.

HA5 is a Hyaluronic Acid skin hydrator that adds value to any skin care regimen. It is suitable for all skin types and is easy to use. You simply apply it in the morning and night after cleansing and toning, but before moisturizing. HA5 works great on the neck, face, and décolleté areas where wrinkles and fine lines exist.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic Acid is a natural hydrator for your skin. It is naturally found in the skin and helps keep skin healthy and resilient by holding in moisture. Hyaluronic Acid decreases as we age, with only 50 percent left between the ages of 40 to 50 when compared to what your body had at the age of 20. It’s important to replenish Hyaluronic Acid as we age to help minimize signs of aging.

How does HA5 work?

Per SkinMedica‘s website “HA5 supports the skin’s ability to replenish its own HA for overall skin health. HA5 has a proprietary mix of five HA forms that smooth the skin, thereby decreasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The 5 HA’s work synergistically to provide immediate smoothing and continuous hydration throughout the day.”

Another component that sets HA5 apart from other Hyaluronic Acid products is its VITISENCETM Technology. This technology “harnesses potent antioxidants found in Vitis Flower Stem Cells and algae extracts to support skin’s ability to replenish its own HA.” This allows for long-term hydration and healthier looking skin. Other topical Hyaluronic Acid products only focus on hydrating the skin’s surface for a temporary period of time.

There is a difference between moisturizing and hydration.

Though it might seem surprising, there is a difference between hydration and moisturizing. Hydration actually increases the water level in the skin, which helps to fight the signs of aging, whereas moisturizing is the process that helps the skin feel like it’s hydrated. HAincreases the water level within the skin, and as such, is a hydration product.

DermaTouch RN is here to help!

With more than 10 years of experience, DermaTouch RN is has tried and tested several skin care products to determine what’s best for our clients. Contact us today for a consultation to determine if HA5 is right for you!

Chemical Peels for More Youthful Looking Skin at DermaTouch RN

Are you’re looking for clearer, brighter, and more youthful-looking skin? Then chemical peels might be the right skin care option for you.

Chemical peels are an advanced facial treatment that can help reduce the appearance of skin imperfections, lines and wrinkles, age spots, acne, and more. The type of peel will dictate the level and type of results received.

 

DermaTouch RN Uses names we can trust: SkinMedica & Vi Aesthetics.

At DermaTouch RN, we use SkinMedica Peels and Vi Aesthetics Peels to serve our patients. With SkinMedica and Vi Aesthetics, we can rest assured that our patients will walk away with a more youthful looking appearance when the peels are used as directed.

We use three levels of Chemical Peels.

SKINMEDICA VITALIZE PEEL

The Vitalize Peel works well for mild skin imperfections. It increases skin vibrancy and reduces the appearance of roughness, fine lines, and wrinkles with little to no downtime or discomfort.

SKINMEDICA REJUVENIZE PEEL

The Rejuvenize Peel works well for moderate to severe skin perfections. It’s great for smoothing the appearance of roughness, fine lines, and wrinkles with little to no downtime or discomfort.

VI AESTHETICS PRECISION PLUS PEEL

VI Peel with Precision Plus is a great chemical peel for pigmented skin and sun spots. It helps minimize the appearance of age spots, smooths rough textured skin, and brightens areas of discoloration. As with the SkinMedica peels, there is little to no downtime or discomfort.

How quickly will I see results with chemical peels?

Results can be seen with just one peel. However, for best results, a series of three to six peels is recommended, depending on the patient’s desired results. Results will vary based on the severity and type of skin issues and the number of treatments administered per patient.

Don’t be fooled by unlicensed providers! Safety first!

You want to be sure you’re going to an establishment with a licensed medical professional. SkinMedica only sells their products to licensed medical professionals, and their peels must be administered by a licensed medical professional, which includes physicians or an aesthetician or nurse under a physician’s supervision. The same goes for Vi Aesthetics peel products. If you’re purchasing your peel from an establishment that’s not authorized to use these lines, then move on. Also, several SkinMedica products are being sold illegally online, which you can read more about in our last blog: “Beware of Skincare and Cosmetic Product Fraud!

With more than 10 years of experience, DermaTouch RN is here to meet your cosmetic and skin care needs. Contact us today for a consultation to determine what chemical peel or skin care package is right for you!

Beware of Skin Care & Cosmetic Product Fraud!

In today’s world, fraud seems to be everywhere. From purses and watches being sold on the streets to professional line hair care products being sold in certain department stores to knock off designer label shoes and clothing being sold online, fraud costs people a lot of money. And the skin care industry is no different.

There are several companies that attempt to sell skin care products that only a professional MedSpa or doctor has permission to sale. With products such as professional hair care and skin care products, there’s no guarantee that you’re truly getting the quality that you pay for when buying them from an unauthorized dealer. In addition, there’s no way of knowing if the ingredients are safe if used as directed.

SkinMedica, an effective line that we carry at DermaTouch RN, recently released a list of companies that are using their label online. They shared the following statement in a flier they created, “We value you as a client and only want the best outcome for your skin, which is why we purchase high-quality medical grade products straight from the manufacturer. We also know as consumers that fraudulent products exist in all forms…”

SkinMedica is one line that sells only to physicians, so if there isn’t a licensed physician on board, then the establishment is fraudulently selling SkinMedica products. In other words, if you’re purchasing SkinMedica products online, then there’s no guarantee what you’re getting, as most who sell online are not authorized to sell SkinMedica products (unless it’s an organization with a licensed physician on board).

At DermaTouch RN, we carry SkinMedica, La Bella Donna Makeup, Clarisonic, and Obagi Clenziderm. You can trust that when you purchase these products from our clinic, you’re getting the high-quality skin care and cosmetics with the results you expect.

Your safety comes first. For more information about the list of fraudulent online distributors of SkinMedica products, or to find out what type of skin care we have to meet your needs, contact us at 281.895.9090.
