Get Rid of that “Double Chin” with 40% off of Kybella at DermaTouch RN!

Are you tired of seeing your “double chin” when you look in the mirror? Looking for a way to get rid of that unwanted fat without going under the knife? Then Kybella by Allergan might be right for you! And for the month of August, DermaTouch RN of Houston, TX is offering Kybella for 40% off per vial, bringing the price down to only $360 per vial! That’s incredible savings and means August is the perfect time to begin to eliminate that “double chin” without the downtime that surgery would require!

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA approved prescription to treat moderate to severe submental fat under the chin (aka “double chin”). It works like the naturally occurring substance, deoxycholic acid, which absorbs fat in the body. Kybella was tested at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center by a group of plastic surgeons and is a great alternative to plastic surgery.

How long does it take to see results?

Kybella destroys unwanted fat cells that are then naturally eliminated from the body for good. Each patient is different as far as results are concerned. The number of injections required varies among patients, with a common range being 15 to 30 injections per treatment with a series of two to four treatments spaced at least a month apart. Some patients see results after just two treatments, where it might take at least four or more for others to see optimal results. With the treatment plan, results can last for years to come.

Is Kybella right for me?

If you’re bothered by the extra fat under your chin and you want to avoid surgery, then Kybella might be right for you.

Need to Remove that Beloved Tattoo in Just One or Two Treatments??

Whether it’s a relationship gone wrong, and now you need that tattoo removed, or you’re just over it, it’s easier now than it has ever been to get a tattoo removed! DermaTouch RN of Houston offers the PicoSure laser from Cynosure, which removes tattoos in fewer treatments than traditional tattoo removal treatments from the past.

What can I expect with the PicoSure Laser to remove my tattoos?

The PicoSure laser removes tattoos with half of the number of treatments when compared to the past options to remove tattoos. That means less pain, fewer sessions, and less cost than one might have paid in the past to have a tattoo removed. Studies show almost 75% of ink clearance in only one to two treatments! It takes about four to six weeks for optimal results to take effect.

How does the PicoSure Laser work to remove tattoos?

Using ultra-short pulses that create a photomechanical impact, the pigment or ink is turned into tiny dust-like particles that are easily absorbed and eliminated by the body through its natural eliminations processes. With each treatment, the tattoo will get lighter and lighter until it’s no longer visible. Results vary based on the individual, the number of treatments, amount and color of pigment used, and size of the tattoo.

The PIcoSure is also great for removing brown spots and treating other skin care concerns.

How does laser hair removal permanently remove hair?

Laser hair removal is designed to permanently remove hair by targeting and heating the pigment in the hair follicle. The hair then falls out and the follicle does not produce any more hair in the future. The treatment works best on dark hairs vs. light hairs.

How many treatments does it take for laser hair removal to work?

It typically takes four treatments for laser hair removal to become permanent. At DermaTouch RN, we offer various treatment packages based on the size of the area being treated. Results vary based on the patient and number of treatments.

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.

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.

 Who Legally Can Inject Based on The Texas Medical Board RULE §193.17?

34790755 - wrinkle reduction, the lion

Not all MedSpa and Aesthetic Centers are created equal. In fact, you want to do your homework and have at least a basic understanding of who can perform certain cosmetic procedures in Houston under Texas law. With so many MedSpa and Cosmetic procedures being offered to supplement income for certain health and beauty establishments, you want to make sure you walk through the door of a reputable and safe establishment that knows what they’re doing, and you want to make sure they’re following the legal code of requirements.

So this might seem a bit boring to some, but please bear with us, as it’s important to at least know the basics when it comes to who can or cannot legally inject for cosmetic procedures before any practitioner puts her or his hands on you.

What is the Purpose of Texas Administrative Code RULE §193.17?

As outlined in Texas Medical Board RULE §193.17 – Nonsurgical Medical Cosmetic Procedures

“the purpose is to establish the duties and responsibilities of a physician who performs or who delegates the performance of a nonsurgical medical cosmetic procedure… These procedures can result in complications, and the performance of these procedures is the practice of medicine. This rule shall not be interpreted to allow individuals to perform procedures without a physician or midlevel practitioner being onsite, or a physician being available for emergency consultation or appointment in the event of an adverse outcome.”

Who Can Legally Inject for Cosmetic Procedures in Texas?

Per the Texas RULE §193.17, a midlevel practitioner, in addition to a physician, can inject with a written order. A midlevel practitioner is defined as “a physician assistant or advanced practice registered nurse.” Procedure is defined as “a nonsurgical medical cosmetic procedure, including but not limited to the injection of medication or substances for cosmetic purposes, the administration of colonic irrigations, and the use of prescription medical device for cosmetic purposes.”

In other words, nurses can inject with a written order. A doctor or midlevel practitioner must see the patient and then write an order that is good for a year to allow for future H&P (history and physical examinations)—a review of current prescriptive drugs and over the counter medications of the patient to assure continued safety of treatments rendered.

When is it illegal to inject in Texas? 

Per the definitions above, only a physician or midlevel practitioner—a physician assistant or advanced practice registered nurse—can inject for cosmetic procedures such as fillers, Botox, and any procedure that requires numbing injections, and so forth.

However, delivery of prescriptive drugs must be part of the individual’s scope of practice. Anyone who is injecting that falls below the level of a nurse is practicing illegally, even if employed by a physician. It’s tough for the medical board to police all of the physicians who utilize illegal practices unless they are turned in to the medical board by another organization or individual.

Who Do You Prefer for Your Filler or Botox Injections?

All things considered above, having a licensed, qualified physician or registered nurse backed by experience is the preference when it comes to conducting and overseeing cosmetic procedures; and don’t be fooled, in some establishments, the registered nurse has more skill and experience than the physician does when it comes to injections, so ask about experience.

DermaTouch RN has a highly trained staff backed by years of experience in cosmetic procedures, including Founder and Director of Nursing, Renee Moschitto, RN, BSN, and Medical Director, R. Scott Yarish, MD and Board Certified Medical Surgeon. DermaTouch RN’s treatment and care for the patient is unprecedented for MedSpas today, with national recognition from patients.
