Filed under: DERMA HEALTH INSTITUTE — themediapush @ 5:32 pm
LipoVibe is the newest and latest advancement in liposuction.  It just debuted in Arizona at the Paradise Valley office of Derma Health Institute this September. The procedure is nicknamed “Tickle Lipo” because patients report a tickling feeling when it is administered.
  • Lipo Vibe is an FDA approved, safe and effective way to eliminate unwanted stubborn areas of fat.
  • Unlike traditional liposuction and laser liposuction that risk trauma to the surrounding tissue, our gentle 3-dimension technology contours the body for dramatic results with little to no downtime and all under a local anesthetic.
  • This state of the art procedure can be used on virtualy any area of the body that is resistant to diet and exercise with fantastic results.
  • The energy used to emulsify fat also stimulates collagen and facilitates skin tightening.
  • Lipo Vibe is available at the Paradise Valley Derma Health Institute location and administered by Dr. Gael DeRouin. (Board Certified  in Facial Plastic Surgery and Otolaryngology. He is a well-accomplished physician with over 30 years of training and experience. )

Increase in Botox Sales May be an Indication of Economic Faith February 9, 2010



(February 8, 2010 Phoenix, AZ) – In fourth quarter 2009 Derma Health Institute saw a significant increase in injectables like Botox and Dysport as well as facial fillers like Juvederm and Perlane.  A recent survey conducted by MEDACorp uncovered similar results, reporting these procedures had increased nationwide for the first time since the economic downturn began in 2007.  Findings like this may indicate consumers are beginning to feel a sense of economic optimism.

“Last year our Botox and Dysport business increased by 115% and our Juvederm and Perlane business increased 89%,” said Trish Gulbranson, Derma Health Institute owner.  “This is a positive sign that patients feel like the market is starting to turn around.”

In this economic climate companies like Allergan, the maker of Botox, have also increased their customer service programs.  They recently started a promotion called Brilliant Distinctions, which encourages customers to sign up for an email list and get up to $50 in credit towards their first Botox visit at Derma Health Institute.  Patients then receive emails every 4-6 months reminding them to make their next Botox appointment.  According to Gulbranson customers absolutely love this VIP service.

“The nice thing about Botox and Juvederm is that they’re a quick fix, minimally invasive and provide instant results.  We’ve seen a decrease in the cost of both these products in the last few years. An average woman can get Botox for about $250 and get rid of that ‘angry line’ between their eyes. Juvederm treatments have also decreased in cost to from $600 a syringe to $399.  With these, patients come out looking years younger, rejuvenated and relaxed.”

Derma Health Institute has earned the highest certification level awarded by Allergan, Black Diamond. As one of the largest providers of Botox and Juvederm in the nation, they have an immense amount of experience and results with these procedures.

Popular hCG Diet Safe Only When Medically Supervised January 21, 2010

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

(Phoenix, AZ) – The hCG Ultimate Fat Burning Diet has received significant publicity based on impressive weight-loss results. However, this diet is extremely sensitive and must be monitored by a medical professional to assure desired results are achieved.

“Many unqualified businesses and on-line companies have recently advertised their version of the hCG diet,” said Dr. Ann Watwood, Medical Director at Derma Health Institute of Ahwatukee. “It’s important for consumers to realize this is a specialized program that requires the close supervision of a doctor. At Derma Health Institute, patients are seen weekly to ensure they’re achieving a positive outcome without medical complications.”

The Ultimate Fat Burning Diet involves the hormone hCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin, to assist in weight loss. This natural hormone is found in both men and women and increases significantly during the early stages of pregnancy. Clinically, it has been shown that using this hormone in combination with a very specific low calorie diet will stimulate the body to mobilize and burn extra fat cells for energy.

When administered properly, patients can see a weight loss average of 10-25 pounds over the three week hCG program. When used incorrectly, consumers reported feeling faint and weak, dizziness, extreme hunger attributed to improper hormone administration and no weight loss at all.

“This type of extreme diet can be dangerous if a patient is not correctly monitored,” Watwood added. “At Derma Health Institute, blood samples are taken before the diet begins to confirm there are no underlying health problems like diabetes, high blood pressure, hyperthyroidism or issues with kidneys or liver that could adversely affect the patients overall health. Patients are then monitored by physicians in weekly meeting to ensure that there are no complications that could affect their health or success on the diet.”

Consumers need to remember it’s illegal to purchase any drug without a prescription from a licensed practitioner and medications sold in other countries are not held to the same safety standards of those sold in the United States. Therefore, there is nothing in place to confirm a substance ordered on-line is really hCG.

For more information on the hCG diet contact Derma Health Institute at (480) 539-0777 Mesa/Gilbert, (480) 730-9000 Chandler/Tempe, (480) 460-1505 Ahwatukee/Phoenix or (480) 991-7900 Paradise Valley/Scottsdale, or go to


More than 10,000 pounds lost in the Valley thanks to hCG Diet December 31, 2009

( Phoenix , AZ ) – Derma Health Institute is helping the Valley look great and slim down in 2010 with the popular hCG Ultimate Fat Burning Diet.

In 2009 Derma Health Institute helped 357 hCG patients lose at an average 28.8 pounds for a combined total of 10,281 pounds. Most patients lost their weight in about 30 days. hCG has become a popular and fast way to lose weight. This diet involves using a natural hormone called hCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin, to assist weight loss. It is the hormone that increases significantly during pregnancy, and helps to support the growing baby in its early stages, although it is a natural hormone that is found in both men and women. One of the functions of this hormone is to stimulate the body to mobilize and burn extra fat cells for energy. In the weight loss program, a very small amount is used and is taken in conjunction with a very low calorie diet.

Derma Health Institute wants to help dieters understand this program through free informational seminars at all four Valley locations. See dates/locations and times below.

“This diet has many years of research behind it and under the supervision of a doctor it is safe and attainable and you can keep the weight off with some nutritional guidance. For most patients losing a ½ pound to a pound a week is defeating and this quick boost you get from the hCG diet gives patients what they need to have the motivation to keep going,” said Trish Gulbranson, owner of Derma Health Institute. “We have seen amazing results in the past year.”

Just in time for New Years Resolutions, Derma Health Institute is offering the diet for a limited time at only $599 and those who sign up will receive a $300 towards a laser service. Attend a free seminar to learn more about the hCG Diet this January and you will also receive a $25 coupon off the diet plan. Refreshments will be served and there is no cost to attend. For more information on the diet or the seminars, call (480) 539-0777 Mesa/Gilbert, (480) 730-9000 Chandler/Tempe, (480) 460-1505 Ahwatukee/Phoenix or (480) 991-7900 Paradise Valley/Scottsdale, or go to

The new Bio-Match Therapy from Derma Health Institute is able to correct the effects of menopause, with an individual treatment for each woman. The Bio-Match therapy works to balance hormones for women going through menopause to help end side effects such as hot flashes, headaches and mood swings.

Bio-Match Therapy is an individualized program that aims at reducing the effects of menopause on women. The hormones that are used are all natural, so essentially women are only putting more of their own natural hormones into their body to balance out the effects of menopause. The most important aspect of the Bio-Match Therapy is that it is not an off-the-shelf prescription. It is made individually for each person and their particular needs.

Before a woman can start to use Bio-Match Therapy, comprehensive tests and research are done concerning the client’s medical history. Once all of the tests are done, doctors prescribe natural hormones that are an exact match to the client’s to help balance the fluctuation in hormones due to menopause. Clients have available to them natural hormone balancing cream, supplements, nutritional planning help and an easy to follow guide. The doctors also make a point of ensuring the plan is perfect for each client and help them during the entire process of the plan.

Women who could potentially benefit from the Bio-Match Therapy include women who are suffering from pre-menopausal symptoms, menopausal symptoms, post-menopausal symptoms, thyroid disorder or adrenal fatigue symptoms. Benefits of the Bio-Match Therapy include an end to hot flashes, weight gain, mood swings, low libido, night sweats, memory loss and headaches.

“At Derma Health Institute we aim to help our clients deal with the difficult parts of menopause and help them restore themselves into their former self,” Trish Gulbranson, the owner of Derma Health Institute, said. “We know that menopause can be a very difficult time, so we want to try and make it as easy a process as possible through this personalized program,” she said.

Derma Health Institute is also currently offering free consultations with clients to see if they are potential candidates for the Bio-Match Therapy treatments. Currently, the therapy costs $799. There are also supplements as well as cream which are beneficial and available to be added on to the service for an additional cost.
