Get Rid of Those Bothersome Veins with Laser Vein Therapy at DermaTouch RN in Houston!

At DermaTouch RN of Houston, we treat a variety of skin conditions and cosmetic needs, from acne treatments and fine lines and wrinkles to laser hair removal and rosacea. Our list of services also includes removing or reducing the appearance of varicose and spider veins.

We use the Sciton BBL 1064nm laser to help reduce the appearance of spider and varicose veins.

With our top-of-the-line technology, we can help reduce the appearance of vascular lesions on the legs, face, and body. We use the Sciton BBL (Broad Band Light) 1064nm laser—the 1064nm allows us to treat deeper vessels on the legs and face.  The laser works by creating light energy with an innovative flash lamp technology that is passed through smart filters to treat several types of skin conditions, including spider and varicose veins.

Is the treatment comfortable?

Using precise, thermoelectric skin cooling in conjunction with the light therapy, it allows for the treatment to be a quick, relatively comfortable outpatient treatment. Some might experience a warming or tingling sensation and redness or slight darkening during and after treatment that subsides shortly after.

How many treatments will I need?

With one treatment, the appearance of veins is typically reduced. Depending on the severity of the veins being treated, more than one treatment might be recommended. Results vary based on patient biology, the severity of veins, and the number of treatments received.

Repair Summer Skin Damage with Chemical Peels & Lytera 2.0!

Now that we’re a few weeks into fall, our trips to the beach are less frequent and our tans are beginning to fade. What might remain, however, is sun damage.

Fortunately, there are ways to treat skin damage and reverse the signs of aging as a result.

At DermaTouch RN, we offer the latest in technology and products to treat and reverse the signs of sun damage, including laser technology, chemical peels, and SkinMedica products.

Laser Technology to Say Bye-Bye to Rosacea at DermaTouch RN!

If you deal with Rosacea, then you don’t need a description of what it is. At DermaTouch RN, we understanding how frustrating the condition can be. Fortunately, we can successfully treat Rosacea with our  532nm Aura laser and Broad Band Light (BBL).

What is Rosacea?

Being a common disorder affecting the facial skin, neck, and chest, the cause of rosacea is not known. It comes on most commonly in between thirty and fifty years of age, though those younger and older can experience rosacea, as well. Females are more likely to be impacted compared to males, though the severity of the condition is worse when it does impact males. Further, people with fair skin are impacted more than those with darker skin tones.

There are three stages of Rosacea:

Stage 1: Recurrent blushing or flushing which can last from several minutes to hours.

Stage 2: Redness covers a large area of the face with possible pimples, slight swelling and pustules developing on the mid-forehead, chin, and nose. Prominent facials pores can develop as the condition worsens.

Stage 3: Progressing to the third stage of Rosacea is uncommon, and when it does occur, it’s known as rhinophyma. This stage can be very disfiguring and is characterized by swelling and growth of the central facial areas and nose.

What triggers Rosacea?

It’s not clear what causes rosacea, though there are some known triggers that tend to initiate it or make it worse, including:

  • Alcohol, coffee, tea, spicy foods and hot foods can cause facial flushing, making Rosacea more noticeable.
  • Sunlight triggers and can worsen Rosacea.
  • Per the National Rosacea Society, emotional stress is the second most common trigger for Rosacea.
  • Hot tubs, baths, and showers can trigger and worsen Rosacea.

DermaTouch RN can treat Rosacea with laser technology!

With the advanced technology of our 532nm Aura laser and Broad Band Light (BBL), we can minimize the surface capillaries which minimizes facial flushing in the future. Depending on the severity of the condition, several treatments might be recommended (2 to 3 are common), though a noticeable difference can often be seen after just one treatment. As the body continues to build small surface capillaries, maintenance treatments will be required to keep the condition at bay.

Contact us today to set up your free consultation today to discuss how we can help you treat the frustrating condition of Rosacea today!

Celebrate National Women’s Health & Fitness Day with DermaTouch RN of Houston!

Women’s Health & Fitness Day is Wednesday, September 27 of this year and will be held on the last Wednesday of September annually. Being one of the nation’s largest annual health promotion events for females from children on up to the elderly, we at DermaTouch RN encourage women to participate in the event and give focus to their health and well-being not only on the event day but every day going forward. Organizations throughout the U.S. will participate to support the health and fitness of women, from schools, clinics, health clubs, senior centers, and more.

DermaTouch RN of Houston offers free consultations for not only skin care and cosmetic needs, but for overall well-being with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy that supports our health from the inside out. Other ways we can help you support your overall health include fat reduction and treatment of other common skin conditions, such as rosacea and skin warts.

Fat Reduction

Kybella

Kybella is a great treatment for fat reduction under the chin, or submental fat. No matter how hard some exercise, the fat under the chin remains. Kybella is injected into fat cells, which are then destroyed and eliminated from the body. The healthy cells remain. The number of injections and treatments vary depending on the patient ‘s needs.

SculpSure

SculpSure allows you to permanently melt away fat around the flank areas and abdomen. Developed by Cynosure, SculpSure uses advanced laser technology to heat and melt away fat in target areas while leaving visceral fat untouched. The fat loss is permanent, and the number of treatments required depends on the severity of the fat and desired results.

Hormone Replacement Therapy

Balanced hormones mean optimal health from the inside out. Over time, our hormone levels can decrease, leading to unwanted symptoms like tiredness, mood swings, and more. At DermaTouch RN, we use BioTE® all natural Bio-Identical Hormone Pellet Therapy to support the replacement of hormones in the most natural way possible.

Other Common Skin Conditions

With advanced laser technology, DermaTouch RN can treat several common skin conditions, including acne scarring, rosacea, skin warts, and tattoo removal.

Celebrate Women’s Health & Fitness Day with DermaTouch RN next week! Contact us today for a free consultation to find out how we can help you improve your overall health and well-being.

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.

Contact DermaTouch RN of Houston today to find out if JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is right for you. While you’re at it, check out our monthly specials on VOLLURE and several other services we offer!

Is Dysport Right for You?

Dysport is an FDA approved prescription to relax the muscles that cause frown lines on the forehead and crows feet around the eyes. It came on the market in 2009 and was the first competitor to Botox, which had been on the market since 2002. At DermaTouch RN, we offer both Botox and Dysport, and we often get the questions, “What’s the difference?”

Dysport is very similar to Botox.

Similar to Botox, Dysport is a Botulinum Type A Neurotoxin used to relax muscles that cause crows feet and frown lines on the forehead.

How is Dysport different than Botox?

Botox is a larger molecule than Dysport, meaning it requires more Dysport to achieve a similar result to Botox. Botox is also more per unit, though because it requires more Dysport to achieve a similar result, the cost saving is minimal when compared to Botox.

As far as results, Botox typically takes 4 to 6 days to see an initial effect and Dysport typically takes 2 to 5 days.

Dysport is $1.00 off this month!

For the month of September, we’re offering Dysport at $3.00 per unit. And even if it’s not on special, you can’t beat $4.00 per unit for Dysport.  So stop in or contact us today to set up your free consultation today to determine if Dysport is right for you!

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

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.
