Is JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC Right for You?

With so many dermal filler options available, there can be a lot of question as to which one to use for the needs of the patient. The truth is, we often use a blend of fillers for a patient at DermaTouch RN, depending on the facial structure and concerns of the patient. We also stick to fillers backed by results and customer satisfaction, which is why we offer the full line of fillers by Allergan, including JUVÉDERM® XC, JUVÉDERM® ULTRA XC, AND JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, and their newest fillers  JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC and JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC

We recently shared a news story on why we love JUVEDERM VOLBELLA XC, and thought we’d share here in our blog, as well. Patients treated with VOLBELLA XC have the opportunity to walk away with fuller lips and softer lines around the mouth, making them very happy individuals!

What is JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC?

JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is an FDA approved prescription for use in the perioral rhytids and lips. Of the subjects treated with VOLBELLA XC, two-thirds showed improvement in lip fullness and perioral lines through one year.

What makes JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC unique when compared to other dermal fillers?

JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is unique when compared to Allergan’s other dermal fillers because it has been customized with a lower HA concentration, yet it still gives the long-lasting results patients and healthcare providers have come to experience and expect from Allergan’s JUVÉDERM®  collection of fillers.

VOLBELLA® XC is also formulated with Allergan’s proprietary filler technology, VYCROSS®, which blends different molecular weights of Hyaluronic acid to support the gel’s duration.

DermaTouch RN’s Founder, Renee Moschitto, shared the following about VOLBELLA:

“VOLBELLA® XC is a thinner product when compared to other fillers, so we don’t see the bumpiness that can sometimes occur with thicker fillers. It’s easier to work with to create a smooth appearance for the lips and around the mouth, as well as under the eyes. VOLBELLA is also great for those who are trying filler in the lip and mouth areas for the first time, because it adds volume, but not quite as much va-voom as thicker fillers can. And even though it’s a thinner product, making it easier to work with, it has still been shown to last for up to a year, similar to thicker fillers.”

Off-label, VOLBELLA can be used to increase volume in the under eye area, as well. However, there is not a dermal filler available that is FDA approved for use under the eyes, so it’s important to work with a trained practitioner with positive results and reviews if having filler injected under the eyes.

In a near-future blog, we’ll discuss JUVEDERM VOLLURE XC, Allergan’s newest filler, approved for use in the nasolabial fold area of the face.

At DermaTouch RN, the patient always comes first. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation to determine the best dermal filler options for your cosmetic needs.

May Is Skin Cancer Prevention Month!

The skin is the largest organ of the body. It protects us from the environment, helps detox our system from harmful substances, and more. It is also an indicator of health. We’re all born with decent skin, and as we get older, different factors impact the aging of the skin—lifestyle, hormones, diet and nutrition, environmental toxins, and more. These factors are what bring many of our clients through the door at DermaTouch RN.

With May being Skin Cancer Prevention Month, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the impact the sun has on the aging of our skin. The Skin Cancer Foundation states that 90 percent of our skin aging is caused by the sun. The good news is, with the right steps, we can protect ourselves from sun damage and premature aging of the skin due to sun exposure.

How can you prevent and treat sun damage?

Avoidance. Wear sun protective clothing, hats and long sleeves to protect your face and body from the sun. Also, avoid the sun between the hours of 10AM and 3PM when the sun’s rays are most potent. Tanning beds are also a no-no when it comes to protecting the skin. At the same time, the sun supports Vitamin D production and activates several other bodily functions, so some sun is good for you.

Wear Sunscreen. Per The American Academy of Dermatology, wearing a sunscreen that’s “broad-spectrum” and water-resistant with at least an SPF 30 is essential to prevent sun damage. Apply sunscreen right after you sweat or swim, and reapply it at least every 2 hours. The American Academy of Dermatology also shares that one should apply sunscreen to dry skin 15 minutes prior to exposure.

Cosmetic and skin care treatments. Laser treatments are a great option to remove photo-aging and sun damage. At DermaTouch RN, we offer a number of skin care and laser treatments to help you turn back the hands of time. We also offer high-quality skin care products to support healing the skin and to prevent premature aging of the skin. Also, if you get burnt, immediately treat the burn with an aloe vera plant or high-quality aloe vera gel or lotion.

Contact us today to schedule a free consultation in honor of Skin Cancer Prevention Month. Let us help you remove and prevent skin care damage with the best options for your skin care needs and concerns.

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.

Give Your Lashes a Boost with Latisse and Revitalash!

Are you tired of having thin lashes? Or are you looking for a cosmetic line to truly give your lashes a boost? Then Latisse and Revitalash might be of interest.

What is Latisse?

Latisse if the first FDA-approved treatment by Allergan to support the growth of eyelashes in people with inadequate or not enough lashes. It was first developed as a glaucoma drug called Lumigan in 2001. Eye doctors and patients noticed that it also helped eyelashes grow longer and lusher with time. It was approved for use on lashes in 2008.       

To see the amazing results of Latisse, check out the before and after photos in the Latisse Real Women Gallery.

What is Revitalash?

Revitalash is a cosmetic line created by Dr. Michael Brikenhoff in 2006. He wanted something that helped his wife “feel beautiful during her fight against breast cancer.” As a result, he created a unique eyelash conditioner, and with time, a full line of products was born.

It’s a privilege to offer these highly sought-after products at DermaTouch RN. They are backed by customer satisfaction with proven results, which is a must to meet our quality standards. It’s a great feeling to see women at our clinic feel great about their new and improved lashes after using Latisse and Revitalash.

DermaTouch RN is committed to supporting our customers with a variety of skin care and cosmetic needs, and we’d love the opportunity to support you. Contact us today for a free consultation to see if Latisse or Revitalash are right for you!

Obagi Medical Skin Care Products at DermaTouch RN

Since 1988, Obagi Medical Products, Inc. has been a leader in medical skin care products. Obagi “is a global specialty pharmaceutical company founded by leading skin care experts in  1988, and is now owned by Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc.”

Obagi means quality and results.

With a commitment to only represent the best skin care products in the industry–meaning they safely deliver the results promised–DermaTouch RN is pleased to offer several products from the Obagi skin care line. Obagi’s products help minimize the appearance of skin damage, premature aging, acne, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation. Our patients have seen a lot of success with Obagi products.

In last week’s blog, “Dana’s Favorite Skin Care Products for Acne Prone Skin,” Dana Mendoza, our Practice Manager, shared that she uses Obagi’s Clenziderm Acne Products to help keep her acne at bay.

Be sure you’re getting authentic Obagi products.

Also, keep in mind that, per Obagi’s website, “genuine Obagi products are available only through physicians, medical spas, and other skin care professionals,” so be sure you’re purchasing authentic Obagi products from these types of professionals. Otherwise, you might be getting a product that is not formulated correctly or is something else, altogether. It can be tempting to order such products online at a discount, but you could be jeopardizing your safety and results when doing so.

DermaTouch RN is here to help you determine the best Obagi products for your skin needs and concerns.

For a full list of Obagi products, visit Obagi’s product page, and then contact us at 281.895.9090 to discuss what products you think would work best for you. Better yet, stop on by, and we’ll be happy to meet with you to show you our full line of Obagi products. We will work together to develop a skin care regimen to meet your skin care needs and concerns!

High-Quality SkinMedica Skin Care Products at DermaTouch RN

At DermaTouch RN, we’re committed to bringing only the best services and products to our patients, and SkinMedica skin care products, an Allergan product, fall within that scope. SkinMedica has “dedicated years of research to formulate advanced skin care products to deliver optimal results for our patients and the physicians who care for them.”

SkinMedica is a name you can trust.

Our patients love SkinMedica products. Why? Because they see results when they use them as directed. SkinMedica was founded by Physicians committed to “advancing the science of skin rejuvenation through research and innovation.” Using research and clinical data, SkinMedica products are formulated for long-term results vs. a short-term fix by using science to work with the skin’s natural healing properties. As a result, transformation happens from the inside out.

Don’t be fooled by online sellers of SkinMedica products.

SkinMedica only sells their products to establishments with a licensed physician on board. If you’re purchasing your products online or through an establishment without a licensed physician, then beware. SkinMedica recently released a list of companies that are selling their label illegally. You can read more about product fraud in our recent blog, “Beware of Skin Care Cosmetic Fraud.”

Let DermaTouch RN help you determine the best SkinMedica products for you.

In last week’s blog posts, “Renee’s Top 5 Favorite Skin Care Products at DermaTouch RN,” and “Dana’s Favorite Skin Care Products for Acne Prone Skin,” Renee Moschitto, our Founder, and Dana Mendoza, our Practice Manager, both shared their favorite SkinMedica products.

Renee’s favorite SkinMedica products include TNS Essential Serum, GlyPro Antioxidant Serum, AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser, and HA5. One of Dana’s favorite SkinMedica products is the TNS Recovery Complex.

For a full list of SkinMedica’s products and testimonials, check out their product page.

Call us at 281.895.9090, or stop by our  DermaTouch RN location today to see our full line of SkinMedica products. We can help you to determine the best products for all of your skin care needs.

Ultherapy – A Lift and Tightening Treatment that Works

Are you looking for a procedure to give the appearance of a more youthful looking neck? Or, are you looking for a way to lift your eyebrows and chin and eliminate the wrinkles on your chest? All without going under the knife? Then, Ultherapy Uplifting Ultrasound could be the perfect treatment for you.

Ultherapy is the first non-invasive, FDA-cleared treatment to lift the chin, brow, and neck and to improve wrinkles and lines on the chest area.  For three years in a row, the treatment has earned a Best of Beauty Award by NewBeauty editors and readers and has a 90% patient satisfaction rating in clinical studies.

How does Ultherapy work?

Ultherapy delivers focused ultrasound energy clear down to the skin’s foundational layer, without disturbing the surface layer of the skin. The energy can work as deep as that of a surgeon during a face-lift to stimulate collagen production and lift and tighten the skin. More than one treatment may be necessary for optimal results.

How can we prove that Ultherapy really works?

Ultherapy does indeed work, and the beauty of the treatment is the visible proof. Additionally, for someone with collagen depletion, Ultherapy can take pictures all the way to the bone, which means that a picture taken at the time of treatment can be compared to another taken four to six months down the road to prove it’s working and stimulating collagen. This Ultherapy photography capability makes it different than any other treatment on the market.

Is Ultherapy safe?

At DermaTouch RN, Ultherapy treatment has proven safe and effective for clients. Capturing good photographs can help show the improved results over time.

Get more bang for your buck with Ultherapy adjunct treatments.

A reputable MedSpa will work with you to develop a personal treatment plan to meet all of your specific skin care needs. For optimal Ultherapy results, many patients combine the treatment with other treatments for a comprehensive skincare treatment program. For example, Ultherapy can lift and tighten the skin at very deep layers. When combined with the SkinPen® treatment–which improves skin texture and the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the superficial layer of the skin–patients can target both the deep layers and the superficial layers of the skin for optimal results. Fillers can also be a great adjunct to Ultherapy treatments, depending on the area of the face being treated. At many MedSpas, like DermaTouch RN, you get more bang for your buck when you consider adjunct treatments as part of a complete skincare program.

DermaTouch RN is backed by 10 years of success, so contact us today for your free consultation to find out if Ultherapy is right for you!
