Girls Just Want to Have Fun

There’s no doubt that sun protection has come a long way since the days when you had to put your body sunscreen on your face. The world’s leading skincare companies have developed products that protect your skin from the outside while improving it from within.

This summer, the brand we’ve been talking about the most in our office is EltaMD® Skincare. Its Sun Care line is formulated with transparent zinc oxide, a natural mineral compound that shields against the widest spectrum of UVA and UVB rays.

We especially love these sunscreens because they are lightweight and free of fragrances and oils, making them perfect for those of us with sensitive or acne-prone skin. Also, EltaMD is ideal for swimmers, skiers, runners, golfers, other athletes — anyone who loves to be outdoors! We are pleased to carry:

  • EltaMD UV Aero Broad-Spectrum SPF 45
  • EltaMD UV Sport Broad-Spectrum SPF 50
  • EltaMD UV Daily Broad-Spectrum SPF 40
  • EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46

It’s Here! Introducing ThermiVa™

Whether the cause is age or natural childbirth, many women experience loosened, uncomfortable labia and vaginal tissue. This may lead to conditions like urinary leakage, reduced or diminished sensation during intercourse, and general discomfort.

If any of these sound familiar to you, we’re happy to let you know that there is a new solution! It’s called ThermiVa™, and it is taking women’s health to a whole new level.

The treatment, based off ThermiTight™ and ThermiSmooth™ radiofrequency technology, can be used to tighten both external (labia) and internal (vaginal) skin.

How it works: ThermiVa is a new, non-surgical procedure performed in our Houston office. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Cash uses a temperature-controlled radiofrequency system. A small wand that has a sensor on the tip monitors skin temperature and the amount of energy delivered to the tissue. Heat applied during the treatment helps to promote collagen redevelopment, strengthen the structure of the skin, and improve integrity of tissues. The complete ThermiVa process includes 3 separate treatments over a 3-month period.

Other benefits of ThermiVa include:

  • Treatments are fast and have little to no pain, lasting about 30 minutes
  • Patients can resume normal activities immediately after the procedure.

Back by Popular Demand: Bellafill®!

You asked and we heard you! The dermal filler Bellafill has returned to our office.

Bellafill is a unique, collagen-based filler that is used to treat smile lines and acne scars. Microspheres in the filler rejuvenate the skin by supporting the production of your own collagen. In other words, it doesn’t just fill; it restores. In clinical studies, results lasted as long as 12 months, although typical results last about 6 months.
