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.

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,…

Don’t let your double chin ruin your selfies

Admit it. It’s bothered you for years. Having a double chin is a bummer. It literally ruins a photograph at the drop of a hat, particularly those coveted selfies. Let me guess – you’re dying to get rid of it, but an invasive, expensive surgical procedure isn’t exactly what you are looking for, am I right? Well, your prayers have been answered, my friend. I am here to tell you it’s time to get serious about zapping your double chin without surgery (unless you’re dying to hide under turtle-necks again this year!)

Discover Kybella: a non-surgical alternative to liposuction for the double chin.

Kybella is an FDA approved injectable drug designed specifically for the treatment of moderate to severe submental fat (double chin). In an approximately 15-20 minute procedure, a series of small injections are made into the double chin fat. Kybella consists of a naturally occurring compound, deoxycholic acid, which is manufactured by the body to help digest fat. When injected into fat, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once the cells are destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After 2-3 treatment sessions (spaced at least 30 days apart), visible reduction of submental fat can be noticed. After the aesthetic response is achieved, retreatment with Kybella is not expected, but can vary for each patient.

As a Top 25 Allergan Aesthetic Practice in the country, all Beleza MedSpa injectors receive the highest level of training from Allergan directly. Our medical professionals are highly experienced in administering Kybella and can answer any questions you may have about the process. They will also customize a treatment plan to meet your needs and desired goals. Give us a call today to book your free consultation at one of our four locations: 1.800.509.9785.

How Much does Coolsculpting Cost?

Coolsculpting Procedure
Coolsculpting has become the gold standard for noninvasive fat reduction and body contouring.  Performed in-office with no anesthesia, a Coolsculpting treatment is done as fast as 35 minutes.  There is no downtime or long recovery.  Patients are back on their feet immediately and can resume normal activities.  Over the next 2-4 months, the fat in the area treated will begin to decrease.  Sounds great, right?  So how much does Coolsculpting cost?
Coolsculpting Cost
The key part of the Coolsculpting procedure is the applicators.  Applicators are attached to different body areas to safely freeze the fat.  Coolsculpting applicators come in all sizes and shape designed for optimal treatment of different body areas.  There are small and large, curved and flat and even one designed especially for the chin.  The Coolsculpting cost is based on the size and number of applicators used.  One large applicator is needed to treat a lower abdomen while two small applicators may be needed to treat love handles.  Depending on the body type and amount of fat, the Coolsculpting technician will choose the right applicators to produce the best result.

So your Coolsculpting cost is determined by the mix of applicators required to give you results.  Coolsculpting prices run anywhere from $800 to $1600 an applicator.  A free consultation is required to give you an individualized quote.
Coolsculpting Near Me
Are you looking for Coolsculpting near me?  Beleza Medspa offers multiple locations with Coolsculpting available.  We were one of the first practices to offer Coolsculpting in Austin and have performed thousands of procedures.  We have many experienced Coolsculpting technicians to give you the best results.
Coolsculpting Vs Laser Lipo
Coolsculpting can help almost any patient.  However, patients wanting even more advanced body sculpting are candidates for smartlipo laser lipo.   In the hands of an experienced surgeon, smartlipo can remove more fat than Coolsculpting and sculpt a curvy figure.  Performed under local anesthesia while awake, smartlipo is safe and has minimal downtime.

What Botox will do to your expression?

What is Botox?
Botox has been around for cosmetic purposes more than 10 years.  It has safely been injected in millions of patients.  Botox is a purified protein that used to relax the muscles of facial expression that cause wrinkles.  Repeated activity of facial muscles will eventually causes lines and wrinkles in the skin.  Botox injected into these muscles causes these wrinkles to not only smooth out, but also to prevent them.  But what will Botox do to your expression?
What Botox will do to your expression.
The goal of Botox injections is not to completely freeze the muscles, but to relax them enough to smooth and prevent wrinkles.  So what Botox does to your expression is usually good. Relaxing frown lines can make you look less angry and tired.  Botox forehead is used to perform a brow lift.  Botox crow’s-feet can make your eyes look wider.  Botox lips can make your lips poutier.  All of these effects from Botox will make you look younger and more refreshed but still have normal facial expressions.
How to get rid of wrinkles.
The first thing to remember is those wrinkles didn’t form overnight and will not go away overnight either.  Getting rid of wrinkles takes a multi-faceted approach coupled with continued maintenance.  There is no miracle cure that will take care of every wrinkle.  A general understanding of why wrinkles form is needed to properly treat them.
What is Collagen?
The building block of skin is collagen.  When we are younger we make plenty of collagen and its all in good shape.  As we age, mostly due to sun exposure, our collagen production slows down even to the point of losing collagen.  This loss of collagen causes wrinkles, sagging and generally older looking skin.  The key to treating wrinkles is to identify the factors contributing to loss of collagen and restarting collagen production.

A great way to look at getting rid of wrinkles is to imagine the face as a canvas.  The canvas itself is your facial skin.  Things like Botox and Juvederm are the paint.   With a fresh, new canvas, an artist can paint a beautiful picture.  However, starting with a damaged canvas, even the best artist will have difficulty painting on it.  So trying to use Botox and Juvederm to fix wrinkles on sun damaged skin will also not be very effective.  The best first step is to rebuild the canvas, the facial skin, so that Botox and Juvederm can do what they are designed to do.
Collagen Stimulation.
So how do we restart collagen production?  The cells that produce collagen are in the deep layer of the skin, the dermis.  We must reach them and stimulate them to produce new collagen.…

10 things to know before getting a butt lift.

There is no doubt about it, butts are in!  Women are clamoring for ways to change the size and shapes of their backsides.  The Brazilian Butt Lift has become increasingly popular as a method to get the butt many women want.  Dr Lawrence Broder MD at Beleza Medspa Austin TX, has performed hundreds of Brazilian Butt Lift surgeries.  He is known for his artistry and creativity in reshaping women’s figures.  He discusses the 10 things you need to know before getting a butt lift:

General Anesthesia is not needed.
The Brazilian Butt Lift or BBL is performed safely while awake using only local anesthesia.  General anesthesia is actually riskier than the BBL itself.  By avoiding going under, the risk, cost and recovery from the procedure is greatly reduced.

Liposuction of the waist is critical.
We judge the size of someone’s butt in relation to the size of their waist.  Smaller waist equals bigger butt.  Aggressive body sculpting is critical for good results.

Fat transfer has its limits.
We are transferring living fat cells in the hope they will survive in a new area.  The amount of fat we transfer is not only limited by how much fat you have, but by the size of your butt.  If we inject too much into a small but, most of it will die.  Patients with small butts who seek great increases in size will need butt implants.

The butt loves fat.
A large percentage of your butt is already fat.  As a result, transferred fat does very well in the butt.  It is important that the fat be handled carefully and injected back into the body as soon as possible.

You need fat.
We need something to transfer!  Weight gain before the procedure is recommended.  The best fat for transfer is from the abdomen and thighs.

You cannot sit on it.
You must avoid direct pressure on the butt for at least 72 hours and as little as possible during the first week.  You can sit, just put something under your thighs.

There is no other way to do it.
BBL surgery transforms your body in a way that cannot be replicated with diet and exercise.  The Brazilian Butt Lift Workout can give you some definition but it will not remove and transfer fat.  Body contouring of you waist and fat transfer to your buttocks is long-lasting as long as you take care of yourself.  The results are life-changing.

You can resume normal activities quickly.
When performed under local anesthesia, you are back on your feet immediately and go home numb.  Regular activities are resumed as soon as you can tolerate them.

Its cheaper than you think.
By avoiding unnecessary general anesthesia, the cost of a Brazilian Butt…

Botox Lips

Lip Lines: Why do I have lines on my lips?
Encircling the mouth is a muscle that used to purse the lips.  Repeated use of this muscle over time causes lines to form around the mouth.  These lines are known as lip lines or lipstick lines (because lipstick tends to bleed into them).  They are very disconcerting to many women as they give an older appearance to those who have them.
 
Lip lines from Smoking.
Smokers are particularly susceptible to lip lines.  Repeated pursing of the lips while smoking tends to cause very deep lip lines.  Plus smoking damages the skin making it even easier for the lines to form.  Another reason to stop smoking!
What do Botox Lip Line Injections do?
Botox is a purified protein that we inject into the face for cosmetic reasons.  We use it to relax the muscles of facial expression that cause wrinkles.  It takes 1-2 days to see some effect and 1-2 weeks for full effect.  The effects of Botox last 3-4 months.  Botox is the gold standard for treating wrinkles due to facial expression.

Botox around lips treats lip lines.  Small amounts of Botox injected into the muscle around the lips, relax it and promote smoothing of the lines.  Care must be taken to use enough Botox to see an effect, but not too much to affect the ability to use a straw.  Typically, only 1-2 units of Botox is needed in each lip line.
How to get rid of lip lines permanently?
Once lip lines have formed, they are difficult to remove with Botox alone.  Deep, longstanding lip lines will need filler injections to get rid of them permanently.  Small amounts of a dermal filler like Juvederm, are expertly placed to fill the lines.  Combining the muscle relaxation of Botox and the line filling with Juvederm, will get rid of lip lines permanently.
Botox Lips Cost
The great thing is that the Botox Lips Cost is very affordable.  Since small amounts of Botox are all that is needed, the Botox Cost is as low as $96.
Botox Lips Gone Wrong.
Botox Lip Injections must be performed carefully.  Incorrectly placed Botox injection, can affect muscles besides the one that causes lip lines.  This can result in a crooked smile for several months.
Botox Lip Lift.
Botox injections can also be used to help roll the lips out.  Precise injections of Botox at the lip border will add to lip definition and make the lips look fuller.  This is also known as the Botox Lip Pop.  Filler injections can plump the lips themselves.

How much does Botox cost for forehead wrinkles?

Botox Forehead Lines
Those pesky horizontal forehead wrinkles, drive many of us crazy.  They make us look tired, angry, anxious or worried.  Where do they come from?  Is there any way to get rid of forehead lines?

Forehead Wrinkles
The action of the forehead muscles, the frontalis causes forehead wrinkles.  This muscle basically raises the brow.  Over time, repeated action of the frontalis causes wrinkles to form in the skin perpendicular to its action.  When were are younger and our skin is supple, these lines pop back as soon as we stop making an expression.  But as we age and mostly due to sun damage, the skin loses its ability to pop back after the expression.  This is when the wrinkles become permanent even when we are not raising our brows.
How to get rid of deep forehead wrinkles
Treatment of forehead wrinkles basically involves relaxing the frontalis muscle that causes them and repairing the skin.  Relaxing the forehead muscles is easy with Botox Injections.  15-20 units of Botox can relax the frontalis muscle to not only smooth forehead wrinkles that are already there, but to also prevent new ones.   Various skin treatments and products are then used to restore the suppleness of the skin so that new wrinkles will not form.
Forehead Botox
In a 15 minute office visit, multiple, almost painless Botox Injections are placed into the forehead muscles.  Within 1-2 days you will see some relaxation of the muscles and full effect may take 2 weeks.  We are not looking to freeze the forehead, but to relax it enough to allow the wrinkles to smooth.  Botox injections last 3-4 months and need maintenance for best effect.
Forehead Wrinkle Cream
Without repairing the forehead skin, the effects of Botox will be less and will not last as long.  Wrinkle creams that work like retinoids and growth factors are an easy daily maintenance to keep the results you have.  Procedures like microneedling, laser resurfacing, Ultherapy, Hydrafacials, and dermal fillers will also repair the sun damaged forehead skin.
How much does Botox cost for the forehead?
Less than you may think?  Depending on the amount of Botox needed for the results you want, it may cost as low as $180.…
