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.

Taking Care of Yourself (and Your Skin) During a Hurricane

With hurricane season among us in Houston, and Hurricane Harvey lurking and ready to make landfall this weekend, we want to ensure your safety here at DermaTouch RN. Personal safety is first, of course. So once you have that covered, we want you to be able to take care of that lovely skin, as well!

Per weather stations, Hurricane Harvey is expected to hit Texas as a Category 3 storm, one of the worst since 1999’s Hurricane Bret, Friday evening into early Saturday. Below are some tips to keep you and your family (and your skin) healthy and safe this weekend and throughout the hurricane season.

Remain calm: Getting stressed doesn’t help anyone when a hurricane arrives. It impacts your ability to function and your overall health, including your skin. Do what you can to prepare beforehand so you can more easily remain calm during the storm.

Keep fresh water handy: Water is important for hydration and cleanliness. Potable water supplies can get contaminated when it rains for days, so put pots out to collect water and keep water pots close to where you need it, like in the bathroom to flush the toilet and wash your hands. Not to mention, you need fresh water to drink!

Wash anything and everything: If you don’t have electricity for days or weeks, then you’ll want to ensure your home, laundry, pets and yourself are squeaky clean before the storm hits.

Be ready if the lights go out: Stock up on candles, lighters, and flashlights and have them handy and easily available if the lights go out, including by sinks to properly wash your face and hands.

Go to the ATM: Before the storm hits, get plenty of cash out of the bank so you have it on hand when you need it. When the electricity goes out, the only option to pay for items might be cash due to credit card machines being down, etc.

Have board games handy: To keep yourself and the children entertained, have board games or cards available with a couple flashlights close by. This will help pass the time and take your mind off the storm.

Charge your personal devices: Charge all of your personal devices, such as a computer, cell phone, notepad, and so on, prior to the storm. When the electricity goes out, use only one device at a time so you have means of communication with the outside world for a longer period of time.

These are just a few tips to support you and your family during a hurricane. For more information, do an online search for “hurricane safety.”

Contact us at DermaTouch RN if you have any questions about our hours or appointments during the storm. We wish you and your family a safe and dry weekend!

Do you have Submental Fullness (aka “Double Chin”)?

Submental fullness, also referred to as “Double Chin,” can be bothersome to those who see it every day when they look in the mirror. It can be caused by aging, genetics, or weight gain, and no matter how much you exercise, it still might not go away. Kybella is a treatment used by many healthcare professionals to help their clients and patients get rid of the submental fat that causes submental fullness.

If you’re bothered by excessive fat under the chin, you’re not alone.

As Allergan—the producers of Kybella—puts it on the mykybella.com website,  “Maybe it’s something you’ve had your whole life, something that developed over the years, or something you noticed recently.” The site also shares that, according to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), 67 percent of people surveyed are bothered by the fat beneath their chin, and are often “just as bothered by submental fullness as they are by lines and wrinkles around and under their eyes.”

Is Kybella right for you?

Regardless of why you have it, if getting rid of your double chin is a top priority, then Kybella might be a good option for you. When injected into the fat under the chin, Kybella destroys unwanted fat cells. The destroyed cells are then naturally eliminated from the body, and they’re gone for good. Many see results after just one treatment, with an average of two to four treatments needed for desired results. The average number of injections per treatment ranges from 15 to 30. Results can last for years to come with a good treatment protocol.

Get 40% of off Kybella at DermaTouch RN in August!

For the month of August, DermaTouch RN is offering 40% off of Kybella, bringing it down to only $360 per vial compared to the normal $600 per vial. This is the perfect time to get rid of your the excess fat under your chin without going under the knife!

5 Tips for Effective Summer Skin Care

It’s summer and it’s a great time of year to take vacations and spend more time outdoors. As with any changing of the season, it’s also a good time to check in and make sure you’re effectively taking care of your skin. The same treatment regimen might not work for our skin all year round due to the changing of the weather and our body’s response to that change. Below are some tips to consider from DermaTouch RN of Texas to ensure you’re effectively taking care of your skin during the summer.

  1. Drink plenty of water! Many of us are outdoors more during the summer, and as lovely as the sun is, the heat can cause us to become dehydrated, causing dry and ruddy skin, along with potential dizziness and other physical symptoms. Even in areas like Houston, TX with high humidity, you still run the risk of dehydration.
  2. Hydrate the skin. In addition to drinking water, another way to ensure your skin is hydrated as much as possible is using a hydrating product like SkinMedica’s HA5, a Hyaluronic Acid product that effectively hydrates the skin. Hyaluronic Acid is our skin’s natural hydrator, and it decreases as we age. Replenishing it with a great product like HA5 is a great step to any skin care regimen.
  3. Re-apply over and over. It’s wise to apply sunscreen all year round (especially to the face), and especially during the summer when you’re outdoors for longer periods of time. Reapply frequently, especially after you’ve been sweating or swimming. With all the many formulas available today, you can select a sunscreen that’s suitable for your skin type, from oil free to anti-aging.
  4. Use the right skin care products for your skin and season. Our skin often requires different treatments during different seasons of the year. In the winter, we might need more moisturizing, for example, whereas in the summer, we might need something for acne prone skin or oil free. Regardless, using high-quality skin care products with proven results is a must for both preventative and reactive skin care. SkinMedica and Obagi are a couple product lines we offer at DermaTouch RN.
  5. Repair damaged skin. You’ve been out in the sun without sunscreen, and the damage is already done. It happens. Now it’s time to use a skin care product high in soothing botanicals or aloe vera gel that will heal without irritating the skin. You can also consider laser treatments to remove and repair sun damage. We offer a variety of laser treatment plans at DermaTouch RN.
