Does hair transplant work?
Yes!  Hair transplant basically involves moving hair follicles from one area of the scalp to another.   It is commonly used to treat male pattern baldness.  Male pattern baldness primarily affects the top and sides of the scalp and causes those hair follicles to go dormant.  Men with male pattern baldness usually present with a receding hairline.  The cause of male pattern baldness is genetics and the hormone testosterone.
The interesting thing about male pattern baldness, is that genetically resistant hair follicles remain in men with hair loss.  These hair follicles are usually present on the back and sides of the scalp.  Hair transplantation involves harvesting these resistant hair follicles and transplanting them to bald areas.  These resistant hair follicles are able to permanently produce hair in bald areas of…

Top 5 Liposuction Questions

Beleza Medspa has helped thousands of patients over the past 10 years, successfully remove stubborn fat from their bodies with liposuction.  However, liposuction is more than just fat removal, but more of an artistic body contouring procedure.  Over the years, we have collected some of the most common liposuction questions by our patients:

How much does liposuction cost?

The liposuction cost depends on the number of body areas treated and the amount of fat needed to be removed. Somebody with more fat to be removed, will require more work and therefore more cost.  The good thing is that the cost of liposuction is affordable more than ever with use of local anesthesia.   Beleza Medspa liposuction prices start at $1199 an area, with the average liposuction cost of $5000.  A free consultation is required to determine individual pricing.

2.  How much swelling will I experience after liposuction?

All patients will experience some degree of swelling after liposuction.  The empty space under your skin where the fat is removed, will naturally be filled with fluid by your body. This swelling will eventually resolve with time.  How long the liposuction swelling takes to resolve and how much swelling there is, depends on how…

AquaGold Fine Touch

AquaGold Fine Touch: Microchanneling Super Facial

What is AquaGold Fine Touch or AquaGold Facial?

Aquagold fine touch is a form of microneedling that use gold plated needles.  Like other forms of microneedling, Aquagold fine touch’s needles penetrate the upper layers of skin to create microchannels.  The Aquagold’s needles penetrate to 0.6 mm.  The microchannels allow for the delivery of skin modifying agents directly into the deeper layers of skin, where sun damage and aging occurs.

How is AquaGold different from Microneedling?

In terms of its mechanism of action, Aquagold is is identical to microneedling.  Both use very small, surgical grade needles to penetrate the upper layer of skin and create microchannels to the deeper layer of skin.  Aquagold does have the innovation of a sterile vial attached to the microneedles.  This allows various skin treatments like Botox, Juvederm, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, PRP and others, to be delivered directly through the needles.  This is different than traditional microneedling which requires these substances to first be placed on the skin directly, before the procedure.  The theory is that Aquagold provides for better transmission of these skin treatments to the deep layers of skin.

So what can Aquagold Fine Touch do for my skin?

Just like in traditional…

Kybella Cost

What is Kybella?

Kybella treatment involves multiple, small injections under the chin to treat double chin fat.  It is performed in-office.  Kybella consists of a natural chemical produced by the body, deoxycholic acid.  Deoxycholic acid is a bile acid that helps to digest the fat we eat.  When injected into fat cells under the chin, it appears to cause the fat cells to be absorbed by the body.  The result is a slimmer facial appearance.   Most patients will require several Kybella treatment sessions spaced a month apart for optimal results.  So what is the Kybella cost?  Where do I go for my Kybella Austin TX?

What is the Kybella Cost?

Kybella is supplied in vials and the Kybella cost reflects the price of the vials.  Most patients will require 1-3 vials per Kybella treatment session.  So the Kybella cost depends on the amount of fat needing to be treated and the degree of improvement desired.

A vial of Kybella normally costs around $600.  So you can estimate a Kybella cost for each treatment of $600-$1800.  The good thing, is that subsequent treatments may require fewer Kybella vials as the fat melts away!

Microneedling Benefits

What is Microneedling?

The visible signs of aging we see are actually located in the deeper layers of skin.  These signs of aging can include brown and red spots, wrinkles and lines and rough texture.  Typically, it is very difficult to reach these layers with home skin care products.  As a result, most skin care creams are not as effective as promised.

Microneedling gives your skin care provider a means to access these deeper layers of skin.  Microneedling utilizes a series of small needles that are designed to penetrate into the deeper layers of skin.   These needles form small channels that have 2 purposes.  The first is collagen induction therapy.  The needle causes a small wound in the deep layer that induces formation of the building block of skin, collagen.   New collagen will soften wrinkles and lines as well as improve elasticity.

The second effect of the microneedling channels, is to provide access to the deeper layers of skin.  This allows special serums and agents to actually access where the damage is.   This can treat hyperpigmentation and roughness.

So what are Microneedling Benefits?

The microneedling benefits are many.  First, it can be performed painlessly, in-office and can be repeated every 4-6 weeks.  The other microneedling…

What Does a Mommy Makeover Consist of?

Mommy Makeover

Becoming a mom is one of the most rewarding experiences a woman can enjoy.  However, the realities of pregnancy and childbirth are not as always so nice.   A mom’s body undergoes tremendous changes that can leave less than desirable  permanent effects.   The skin of the abdomen can be left stretched out with visible stretch marks and scars.  The abdominal muscles can be left pulled apart, leaving a bulging belly.  The breasts can be left stretched out and deflated after breastfeeding.  New fatty deposits can be found after gaining and losing weight.  After vaginal delivery, the vagina can be left with a loss of vaginal tightness, also known as vaginal laxity.  So what does a mommy makeover consist of?

How much does gynecomastia surgery cost?

What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is basically the growth of breast tissue in men and boys.  It typically happens during periods of hormone fluctuations, like during puberty.  Once these hormonal surges decrease, the gynecomastia usually resolves.  But sometimes the breast tissue remains, and the boy is left with an embarrassing problem.

We are also seeing more and more cases of men developing gynecomastia after using steroids and testosterone.  Unfortunately, using such substances without proper knowledge of their use can lead to the hormonal surges that cause gynecomastia.

Gynecomastia Surgery

Gynecomastia treatment effectively seeks to remove the breast tissue, returning a more masculine flat chest to the patient.  The surgery involves a small curved incision at the border of the nipple.  The breast tissue lies directly under the nipple.   Once the nipple is elevated, the breast tissue can easily visualized and removed from the body.  The nipple is then sutured closed and scarring is minimal.

How Much Does Gynecomastia Surgery Cost?

Gynecomastia surgery should be performed while awake under local anesthesia.  This is the safest, most cost effective method to treat gynecomastia.  Tumescent local anesthesia is first instilled into the breast tissue which will give numbness for more than eight hours.  With some oral and/or IV sedation to…
