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?

What does a mommy makeover consist of?

The mommy makeover is a combination of plastic surgery procedures designed to improve the appearance of the post-childbirth body.  Typically, these procedures are combined into one session to save time, money, downtime and risk.  The procedures included depend on the woman’s concerns, degree of correction needed, and tolerance for downtime.  Possible procedures included in a mommy makeover include:

Breast augmentation
Breast lift
Buttock augmentation

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…

Botox Lip Flip Austin

What is the Botox Lip Flip?

So, you’re thinking about getting your lips done, but you are held up by two things: 1.) Cost, 2.) You’re scared they’ll be too big or look ‘ducky’. We get it. We hear it every single day. The cost of Juvederm in the lips can run from $495 – $595, which can be costly for some people. Of course at Beleza, we would never make your lips look ‘ducky’ or too big, but if you’re looking for a less-stressful alternative to getting that perfect pout, try the Botox Lip Flip!

In a nutshell, to achieve the perfect Botox Lip Flip, Botox is strategically injected into the superficial layers of the orbicularis oris (muscles around the mouth, see photo) to relax the muscle fibers just enough to flip the lip outward without losing the function of the muscle. Botox around lips also treats lip lines, aka “smoker line”.

How long does the Botox Lip Flip take?

Less than a minute! The Botox Lip Flip is an insanely fast procedure, but don’t think you can go just anywhere to have this done.  The Botox Lip Flip is a complicated procedure and must be done properly by a professional Botox provider who has…

Dualsculpting: Twice the Coolsculpting in Half the Time!

Coolsculpting Near Me.

You have done your research and talked to your friends.  You know Coolsculpting works and you want it.  How do you choose your Coolsculpting Near Me provider?  You look at Coolsculpting Reviews and Coolsculpting Before and Afters.   Now that you made your decision, you want the best and fastest Coolsculpting possible.  Dualsculpting may be what you are looking for.

Dualsculpting Doubles the Power of Coolsculpting.

Does Coolsculpting work?  Yes!  Coolsculpting works great to reduce fat in stubborn areas without needles or anesthesia.  The only limitation of Coolsculpting is that only one area of the body can be treated at one time.  So unfortunately, those two love handles will require separate treatments, doubling the time required.  Now, the treatment times have been decreased with new applicators like Cooladvanatge, but you still have to sit there through two treatments.  If you are doing multiple body areas at once, like many patients want to do, this can turn into hours and hours in the office.

What is Dualsculpting or Dual Sculpting?

Simply, Dualsculpting involves the use of two Coolsculpting machines at once.  So both those love handles can be treated at the same time!  Both those bra rolls can be treated at the same time! …

Coolsculpting Austin Cost

How much does Coolsculpting in Austin cost?
You have heard about Coolsculpting and how good it works to reduce stubborn fat.  You want it, but how much does coolsculpting cost?  Coolsculpting is priced by the body area treated.  There are different sized applicators that can be applied to each body area.  Everybody is different, so one person can treat their entire lower abdomen with a small applicator while another may need a large applicator.  That is why it is very difficult to estimate Coolsculpting pricing without an in-office consultation.  Just as a ballpark figure, applicators can run $800-$1600 each.  Beleza Medspa due to its volume of Coolsculpting, can offer one of the lowest Coolsculpting Austin Costs.

Liposuction Austin Cost

Looking for Liposuction in Austin TX?

Beleza Medspa has been providing Smartlipo Laser Liposuction and Vaser Liposuction procedures for Austin area patients for more than 10 years.  We are experts at safe, awake liposuction using tumescent anesthesia.  No need to go under or have a long recovery.  Tumescent anesthesia involves the use of the local anesthetic lidocaine.  Once placed in the fat, the lidocaine makes the area numb for up to 12 hours.  This means no pain during the procedure or when you head home.  You are back on your feet immediately and you can resume normal activities as soon as you are ready.

Liposuction Meaning
Liposuction is basically the removal of fat from the body.  Once the area is numb, a hollow cannula connected to suction, is moved through the fat to suction fat cells away.  This is the easy part that anyone can do.  The harder part requires expert training and experience.   Just like sculpting, the liposuction cannula has to be creatively used to suction the fat in visually pleasing contours.  Body contouring is more of an art than a science.
