Spot Correction with SkinCeuticals CryoCorrect

Who doesn’t want spotless skin?
Beleza MedSpa is pleased to announce we will now be offering a new in-office treatment to treat unwanted spots: The CryoCorrect Precision by SkinCeuticals. Starting October 24th, the CryoCorrect will be available at all four Beleza locations.
What is the CryoCorrect?
The CryoCorrect is a noninvasive in-office spot correcting treatment available only at select SkinCeuticals skincare professionals (and Beleza is thrilled to be one of them!). It is clinically proven to treat mild to moderate cosmetic skin lesions, such as age spots, sun spots, and skin tags on the face, hands and body in as little as one treatment.
Safe. Fast. Effective.
What we love about the CryoCorrect is how fast and easy it is. One zap only takes 5-8 seconds! Using cryotechnology, the CryoCorrect gently freezes spots using a steady flow of carbon dioxide (CO2) at a milder temperature than traditional cryogens (i.e. liquid nitrogen). As a result, we are seeing a much more comfortable and softer freeze where the surrounding skin is left intact. With little to no downtime and minimal discomfort, results can be seen in as little as 1 treatment depending on the spot location and size.*

What to Expect During and Post Treatment
During a CryoCorrect Treatment, the spot is quickly frozen and will turn a dark color. This dark color may last between 3-5 days before a scab forms. The scab will slough off between 2-3 weeks, and normal healthy skin will appear. In some cases, the healing process can vary between 4-12 weeks.*

#CheckThenCryoCorrect
We recommend having all unwanted spots checked by a Dermatologist before undergoing a CryoCorrect Treatment to determine if you are a candidate for this procedure. Our medical professionals will also conduct their own analysis before moving forward with the treatment.

Our medical professionals are highly experienced in administering the CryoCorrect Precision and can answer any questions you may have about the treatment. As an added convenience to our patients, the CryoCorrect will be available at all four locations making it easy on your commute to finally get those unwanted spots zapped. Call or email us to book your FREE consultation today: info@belezamedicalspa.com or 1.800.509.9785.

Volbella, SkinMedica and Skinbetter Named Best of Beauty by Allure

Allure Magazine announced their highly-anticipated Best of Beauty Breakthrough Awards this week recognizing the best-of-the-best in various beauty categories. Beleza was especially pleased to see that Allure awarded the 2017 Best of Beauty Breakthrough Award to three of our top-selling (and personal favorite) products: Juvéderm Volbella® XC, SkinBetter Science Alto Defense Serum, and SkinMedica® Lytera 2.0 Pigment Correcting Serum.

What is  Juvéderm Volbella® XC?

Juvéderm Volbella® XC (Volbella) is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler used for lip augmentation and for the correction of perioral lines, often called “lipstick lines” in adults. The lidocaine gel improves the comfort of the injection by reducing sensitivity to pain. Allergan’s new formulation in the product, the Vycross technology, separates this filler from other dermal fillers. It produces natural, softer lips and patients experience less swelling after the injections.

“It’s made with a lower concentration of hyaluronic acid than any other filler out there, so it has a soft consistency and is the best option for anyone who wants a very natural look,” says Jessica Wu, a dermatologist in Los Angeles. (Allure).

Where can I buy Volbella?

As an added convenience to our patients, Beleza offers Volbella at all four locations making it easy on your commute to finally get those lips done. I might be a little biased, but Beleza truly does have some of the top injectors in Austin (and maybe even Texas!). As a Top 25 Allergan Aesthetic Practice in the country, (AKA Black Diamond Practice), all Beleza MedSpa injectors receive the highest level of training from Allergan directly on all injectables, including Volbella. Taking the plunge to get your lips done is nerve racking enough as it is, so it’s best to avoid the added stress of worrying about your injector’s experience. Take a seat at the big kids table and let us take care of your new perfect pout. Call or email us to book your FREE consultation: 1.800.509.9785.

What is Skinbetter Science Alto Defense Serum?
Let’s just put it this way: Alto is THE antioxidant to buy. We all know antioxidants are a key player in a skin care routine because they protect against damage caused by free radicals (pollution, sun, and stress etc). Alto Defense literally takes being an antioxidant to a new level. It is a lightweight, powerful, innovative serum that contains 19 different antioxidants to protect your skin from nasty cell-damaging, wrinkle-causing free radicals. Yes, we said 19!

Where can I buy Skinbetter Science Alto Defense?

From Beleza MedSpa, of course! Skinbetter Science has put the lock-down on all 3rd party online retailers, so unfortunately we are unable to sell their products from our online store. That said, we are happy to ship to you directly. To purchase this amazing…

GloPro MicroNeedling: Does it work?

Sun Damage and PhotoAging
Most of the aging of our skin is caused by sun exposure.  The visible signs of photoaging include wrinkles, sun spots, roughness, redness and laxity.  Much of this damage can be prevented by avoiding the sun and using sunscreen.  However, once you have sun damage, it is important to understand how it happened.  Skin consists of two main layers, the epidermis and dermis.  The epidermis basically consists of a thin layer of dead cells.  It is the lower layer, the dermis where the main structure of the skin consists.  It is here the two main components of skin, collagen and elastin are located.  Collagen gives skin its toughness and elastin gives skin its elasticity.

Its is the dermis where the majority of sun damage occurs.  Specifically, UVA rays penetrate into the dermis and cause damage to the collagen and elastin fibers.  Not only does the sun damage the collagen and elastin that is present, but it actually turns off new production leading to the sun damage we see.
What does MicroNeedling do?
Microneedling was specifically designed to allow medical professionals to access the skin’s dermal layer.  A series of small surgical needles are used to penetrate the dermis during an in-office visit.  The needles are designed to induce small wounds in the dermis that stimulate repair and production of collagen and elastin.  This is also called collagen induction therapy (CIT) and will produce skin rejuvenation.  The other advantage to microneedling is that the small channels that are produced allow the delivery of medications to the dermis.  Most anti-aging creams out there fail to penetrate the skin to the dermis and hence fail to have any effect.  With the microchannels from microneedling, we have direct access to the dermis for drug delivery.
GloPro Microneedling or Microneedling at Home.
GloPro microneedling is a device designed for home use.  It combines microneedling and LED light therapy.  Does it work?  The needles on GloPro are 0.3o mm.  The skin thickness on the face can range from 0.5mm to 1.5mm.  So as you can see, for the needles to reach the dermis where the sun damage is, they must be larger than 0.5mm and preferably 1.0-1.5mm.  The Glopro needles cannot reach the dermis to produce any real, long-term changes.  Use of longer needles at home is dangerous.  The possibility of infections, scarring and allergic reactions is increased.  Professional microneedling at medical offices uses longer needles under controlled conditions.  The Glopro microneedling can induce some changes to the epidermis and skin plumping and may produce some temporary effects.

Botox in Scrotum.

Botox
Botox has now been used for more than 10 years for cosmetic purposes.  It has a proven safety record that is unrivaled.  A purified protein, Botox is used to relax the muscles of facial expression that cause wrinkles.  It takes 1-2 days to see some effect and 1-2 weeks to see full effect.  The effects of Botox last for 3-4 months and must be repeated for continued effect.
The Scrotum.
As most of us know, the scrotum is the sac of skin that contains the testicles in men.  The scrotum is actually more complex than just skin.  A thin muscle, the cremasteric muscle surrounds each sac.  The purpose of this muscle is to retract the testicles to regulate their temperature as well as protect them from injury.  The control of this muscle is involuntary.  The contraction of this muscle can cause the scrotum to be wrinkled, smaller and occasionally can cause pain in some men.
Botox in Scrotum or Scrotox.
Some men suffer problems with their scrotum.  They can have excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, and chronic pain when the cremasteric muscle is contracted.  Other men seek to have a larger, more sensitive scrotum.

Botox in scrotum or scrotox, is used the same way as to relax the muscles of facial expression.  A topical anesthetic is applied to the scrotal skin.  A very small needle is then used to make multiple injections in the scrotal skin.  Over the next several weeks the Botox will relax the cremasteric muscles and reduce sweating of the scrotal skin.  Relaxing the cremasteric muscle causes the scrotal skin to be smoother and will make the scrotum appear to be larger.  Some men report that their scrotum is more sensitive during sexual intercourse.
Botox Scrotum Side Effects.
Just like Botox used elsewhere, Botox in the scrotum is very safe.  There will be mild pain with the Botox injections but this will be minimized with topical anesthesia and small needles.  The cremasteric muscles do help to regulate the temperature of the testicles to promote sperm production.  As a result, Scrotal Botox is not recommended in men trying to have children.  It is also possible that by relaxing the cremasteric muscle, the testicles may be more prone to trauma.  Men should wear appropriate safety gear after having Botox in the scrotum and exposing themselves to possible injury.
Is Botox in Scrotum right for me?
Make a free consultation with one of our experienced injectors to discuss your goals and how Scrotal Botox can help you.…

Lip Injection Cost

So, you’re dying to enhance your lips, but hung up on the cost. Am I right?
We hear it all the time. We receive dozens of lip injection inquiries every day wanting that perfect pucker-up pout, but then cringe at the cost. Don’t let the cost get you down! Whether you’ve always wanted to enhance your small lips, or you’ve just started to notice those dreaded fine lines and droops on the sides of your mouth forming, rest assured we can help you. Yes, we agree, lip injections are definitely a splurge, but let’s be honest, what isn’t a splurge these days? And who wants to go frugal on their lips? At Beleza, we have options to help lighten the blow so you can get that smack back in your smooch.
What Do Lip Injections Cost?

Before we dive into the nitty gritty of Juvederm pricing, let’s talk about what it’s worth to you and how long it lasts. To paint the perfect picture on price comparison, let’s use Starbucks as an example. Think about those delicious Almond Milk Lattes you indulge on at least 3 times per week. The cost (in Austin) for (1) Grande Almond Milk Latte with tax is $4.93. Times that by 3 days per week, and then times that by 52 weeks in a year, and you’re looking at $769.08 you’re spending PER YEAR on that coveted warm pick-me-up that only lasts about 2-ish hours. (And, that’s only if you’re going 3 days a week!)

Now, let’s talk about the cost of a syringe of filler. Juvederm Volbella and Juvederm Ultra or Ultra Plus (to be explained later) syringes range from, deep breath, $495 – $595 per syringe. Yes, that is a lot up front, but think about the daily cost. Both fillers last up to 12 months with optimal correction*. Let’s say you go for more fullness with your lip enhancement and want the Juvederm Ultra Plus ($595). Divide that by 365 days in a year and you’re looking at $1.63 PER DAY for something that lasts you all day long for a year!* Now, that’s definitely affordable. If you cut out 2 lattes per week, it would pay for itself!

This likely goes without saying, but to give the most accurate quote for lip injections, we ask you to book a free consultation with one of our expert injectors so they can better assess your needs and wants. That said, it’s typically safe to assume 1 syringe per patient for lip augmentation, but dosage may vary from patient to patient.
What Lip Fillers are Available?
Beleza is trained on all Juvederm fillers used for lip augmentation. The most commonly used for lips are Juvederm Volbella,…
