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.

For more information on Botox, Juvederm or other filler options, contact Derma Health Institute in Mesa/Gilbert at (480) 539-0777, Chandler/Tempe at (480) 730-9000, Ahwatukee/Phoenix at (480) 460-1505 or Paradise Valley/Scottsdale at (480) 991-7900, or visit

before_afterEnjoy a B&B (Breakfast and Botox) Event in July at Derma Health Institute

(Phoenix, AZ) – Even in a down economy, women want to look their best. Take a vacation from wrinkles and attend Derma Health Institute’s one-day only B&B (Breakfast & Botox®) event at all four Valley locations. The event will take place on Saturday, July 25th from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Locations can be found at

Botox will be only $6.95/unit (after $50 rebate) for up to 25 units for this special one day event. Also, the first ten people who show up to Breakfast and Botox® will receive ten free units of Botox(worth $120 at regular retail price). Customers interested in both Botox & Juvederm will receive up to $200 in rebates that day under a Duet program offered by Allergan. That makes the net price for Juvederm on that day only $309. A typical price for Juvederm in the valley is between $500 to $600 per syringe. Under the Duet rebates, customers can also receive another $100 in rebates from Allergen within six months just for giving them an email address for a reminder of their next appointment. Plus, there will be hourly drawings at the event for free services.

Breakfast muffins, pastries, flavored coffees, orange juice and mimosas will be served. Bathing suits will be on display from Tempe’s “What Women Want” boutique.

Trish Gulbranson, Derma Health Institute owner spoke about the sales increase at Derma Health Institute due to the rise in requests for non-invasive procedures like Botox and fillers. “Tough economic times have caused a decline in plastic surgery revenues; however, our figures show patients are visiting Derma Health Institute for things like Botox 2.9 times a year which is more than twice the national average of 1.3 times annually. Our revenue has increased 71% for these types of procedures over the past year. Revenue is also up due to fractional CO2 laser resurfacing.”
All of the employees at Derma Health Institute are trained, licensed and certified medical and aesthetic professionals. In 2008 Derma Health Institute was honored as a Diamond Level provider of Botox® and Juvederm™ by Allergen, the company that produces the products, and was recognized as one of the largest providers of these procedures in the state of Arizona.

MADCAP Theaters to Bring Music Back to Mill Avenue May 22, 2009

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

madcap_logoAsk any Arizona resident what they know about Tempe and they will undoubtedly mention Arizona State University, Mill Avenue and the idea that Tempe is the local hot-spot for cutting-edge music, arts and entertainment. Thanks to a recent partnership between Downtown Tempe Community, Inc. (DTC) and Centerpoint on Mill, this reputation will remain intact for many years to come.

DTC, a private, non-profit organization that works in conjunction with the City of Tempe to increase awareness of the cultural, lifestyle and commerce experience in the Mill Avenue District, has partnered together to develop the Mill Avenue District Community Arts Project also known as MADCAP. Located at 730 S. Mill Avenue, MADCAP will provide a creative way to use the abandoned movie theater space to re-establish Mill Avenue as a destination for live entertainment and cultural activity.

“Many people have asked what happened to the music scene on Mill Avenue,” said Nancy Hormann, DTC President and Executive Director. “This area has a rich history of supporting contemporary music and other performance arts. Residents and business owners alike have been looking for an affordable way to bring back these types of entertainment events, we feel MADCAP theaters is a perfect solution for this situation. Long-term MADCAP will not only bring music back to Mill, but will also bring new economic growth to the area as well.”

DTC is working on a simple renovation of the empty theaters by converting them into raw alternative performance spaces. Each space will then be used to host a variety of performances and activities including; live music, comedy and dance performances, theatre productions as well as lectures, film screenings and corporate meetings.

“This space provides a unique opportunity for performers and companies,” said Hormann. “The movie theaters were a great set-up, with each space having fantastic acoustics, it allows the building to have a variety of acts and events going on simultaneously without interrupting each other.”

Hormann added that MADCAP theaters would help assure that local musicians and artists had an affordable space to express themselves while helping Tempe continue to build its standing as an art-friendly community.

The location of the MADCAP theaters will also be beneficial for meeting planners and promoters as Mill is easy to get to whether walking or driving, there is ample parking and there are a plethora of diverse restaurants and bars in the area. Additionally the costs to rent out the theater spaces will still be significantly less expensive than most larger facilities in the area. “By day, corporations and businesses can have speaking engagements and meetings here and at night, it’s a place for live music, dance performances and comedy acts,” said Hormann.
Scheduled to open in early June, MADCAP is currently looking for volunteers and donations to help with the restoration process. For more information, go here.

Derma Health Institute to Offer Groundbreaking New Product

Mesa/Chandler/Ahwatukee, Arizona– Derma Health Institute locations in Arizona now offer a revolutionary new product called Latisse. Latisse is the first and only FDA approved product available as a treatment eyelash growth.

“Not only will this revolutionary new product change the lives for many people who have little or no eyelash hair,” said Trish Gulbranson, owner of Derma Health Institute. “It’s going to be a huge cosmetic benefit to all women worldwide. As we age, it’s normal for us to have thinner lighter eyelashes and it’s the eyelash that frames the eye and makes the eyes stand out.” In the past there were really very few choices for women with this problem, outside of wearing false eyelashes. Latisse is a great option with proven results. Our clients are going to be thrilled to actually grow longer, darker, fuller eyelash hair.”

Latisse is manufactured by Allergan, the company that produces Botox and Juvederm. Applied nightly to the upper lash line, this product has shown tremendous eyelash growth when used consistently for 16 weeks. Results include longer, fuller and darker eyelashes. The active ingredient in Latisse, bimatoprost, encourages the production of more eyelash hairs and also extends the duration of the eyelash growth phase. Clinical trials have shown that patients, who use this product daily and in accordance with the instructions, will see results in as little as four weeks. The product works gradually from the inside out with full results after 16 weeks of consistent use. This product is a prescription drug and can only be prescribed by a physician.

Gulbranson added, “Latisse will offer new hope for many patients; whether they are looking to add some volume to their eyelashes without having to fuss with mascara or they need a significant amount of help regrowing lashes all together. This is a monumental development in our industry.”

Recently honored by Arizona Woman Magazine as one of the Top 10 Med Spas in the valley, Derma Health Institute is a physician-based medical center specializing in non-invasive and minimally invasive laser and aesthetic procedures. Derma Health Institute offers services such as Titan body skin tightening, laser hair removal, microdermabrasion and laser wrinkle reduction.
