Would You Like Fuller Lips for the Holidays?

Copyright: <a href='https://www.123rf.com/profile_subbotina'>subbotina / 123RF Stock Photo</a>Do you wonder how the actors on TV always seem to have the perfect lips? Do you wish your lips were fuller or anatomically proportioned? The secret to fuller and “perfect” lips for many is the use of dermal fillers in the upper and/or lower lips.

How are lips generally proportioned?

The upper lip is typically smaller than the lower lip, and in most cases, the goal of a professional injector is to preserve this proportionality.  Each individual is different and unique, however, so there will be times when anatomic variants occur and the upper and lower lip will be closer in size. It’s up to the patient as to whether or not this proportion is maintained.

What types of fillers are used for lip augmentation?

There are different fillers that can work well in the lip area. The type of filler used will depend on the amount of augmentation you desire. Fillers with larger molecules will give more volume, where fillers with smaller molecules will provide less “va-voom.” It also depends on the amount of water the filler draws to it based on its chemical make-up.

A well-educated and knowledgeable injector will be able to look at your face, listen to your desired results, and select the best filler to meet your needs. At DermaTouch RN, your lip augmentation filler options might include Juvederm Ultra Plus, Vollure, Vobella, Restylane Silk, or a combination of any of these.

How long does filler last in the lip area?

The length of time a filler will last in the lip area depends on the individual’s chemistry, the amount of filler used, and the type of filler used. Results can last anywhere from four months up to eighteen months. Individual results will vary.

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!

Getting Wedding Ready to Look Your Best (Within Four Months or Less)!

It’s that time of year. Weddings are in the air! If you’re getting married in the near future, you, of course, want to look and feel your best for what’s considered to be one of the most important days of your life! Or, maybe you’re the mother or the bride or groom, and you too, want to look your best. At DermaTouch RN, we’re here to help with our pre-wedding suggestions that we’ve outlined below. You’ll be able to show up for the big day with your head held high!

More than four months out:

If you still have some time before the big day arises, consider Ultherapy to lift the chin, neck and brow area, while also smoothing the lines on the chest. Ultherapy is a way to lift without going under the knife. This FDA-approved treatment is non-invasive and supports the body in producing and regenerating collagen production through the use of ultrasound. One great thing about Ultherapy is the images that are taken before and after treatment that prove it’s working!

It’s can take two to three months for maximum results to appear, so you want to come in at least four months before the wedding day for a consultation and treatment.

Two to four months out:

Facials and Chemical Peels

We all want that beautiful glow, especially on our wedding day. Facials are great skin treatments to get rid of skin impurities to refine and hydrate the skin. Chemical Peels are a more intense treatment to consider, as well. The appearance of fine lines, acne, rosacea, and overall skin texture and tone can be improved with facials and chemical peels. It often takes a series of facials or peels for maximum results, which is why you want to come in at least two to four months out (four is best) to allow time between each treatment.

Botox

Get rid of those fine lines on the forehead and crows feet around the eyes with Botox before the big day. It can take up to a week for Botox to work, and results last four to six months, depending on the patient, areas treated, and the number of units used. You want to allow enough time for touch-ups, so at least a month out is best for Botox.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers like Juvederm and Voluma can help add volume to the face and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, as well as the depth of nasolabial folds. To allow for touch-ups and to get the results you’re looking for over time, you want to have fillers injected at least two to three months out, if not more. It can take more filler than one realizes for desired results, which is also why from a budget perspective, giving yourself more time is helpful.

At DermaTouch RN, we love helping the bride-to-be and mother-of-the-bride (or groom) feel and look their best. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation to put a game plan together to help you prep for your big day. So, when the big day comes, you’ll be able to walk into the room with confidence!

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.

Top Five Cosmetic Procedures to Lift and Brighten Your Holiday Season

As the holidays approach and party plans start to take shape, both men and women are scheduling cosmetic procedures to ensure everyone looks their holiday best.  Gift certificates are also proving popular stocking stuffers.

Among the top five pre-holiday procedures individuals seek include:

Simple cosmetic procedures can transform for the holidays.

Simple cosmetic procedures can transform your holidays.

 

Injectables and Fillers

While among the most popular cosmetic procedures year-round, injectables such as Botox and DySport and fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Voluma, Sculptra and the latest in injectable treatments, Kybella, top the list in requested cosmetic procedures in preparation for the holidays.  These simple procedures take little time to perform in the office and produce immediate results – eliminating furroughed brow and forehead lines, reducing the appearance of crows feet, smile and lip lines, as well as lifting brows and subtly plumping lips.

Skin Rejuvenation

Enhanced skin rejuvenation laser therapy helps shed the visible wear of the past year, reinvigorating sun-damaged skin and reducing visibility of age spots, lentigines and facial telangiectasia. Patients with photo-damage and photo-aging often benefit from this type of procedure.

Skin Rejuvenation Laser Therapy Specifically Addresses:

  • Sun damage
  • Wrinkles
  • Photo-aging
  • Lentigines and facial telangiectasia
  • Vascular and pigment irregularities

“Painting” the entire face with the laser, patients typically see clearing of sun damage, wrinkle improvement as collagen forms and overall younger looking skin.  Optimal benefit may require three to eight treatments.

Laser Hair Removal

Hair removal procedures are very popular in preparation for skin baring holiday styles. Utilizing the latest in laser hair removal technology, registered nurses safely remove hair by heating the area at the base of the hair shaft, permanently preventing hair regrowth.

The laser procedure targets the pigment in the hair follicle, which works on either black or brown hair, and must be performed during a specific phase in the hair’s growth cycle (active or anagen phase).  Multiple treatments are required and vary with each individual and by body site.

Skin Tightening with SkinTyte

Skin tightening treatments are among the fastest growing laser procedures in the aesthetic industry. Using infrared energy, SkinTyte is safe for all skin types and can treat any area of the body (face, neck, arms, abdomen, knees), giving skin a firmer and more youthful appearance. There is no need for topical anesthetic, no down time, and no excessive redness. This is truly a lunchtime procedure!

Laser Vein Therapy 

A beautiful pair of legs can greatly enhance a holiday dress.  With a revolutionary new laser vein therapy treatment,  spider veins and other distracting veins are quickly and safely eliminated.  Vein removal treatment, including Sclerotherapy and Alscera, effectively eliminates broken capillaries up to 4 mm in diameter on the face and legs as well. Utilizing advanced technology redness and bruising associated with traditional treatments are minimized. This laser vein therapy technology also allows treatment for people of any ethnic origin and skin type, including tanned skin.
