Eye Wrinkles

What are the types of Eye Wrinkles? Our eyes are constantly opening and closing every time we blink.  Plus, when we smile and make other facial expressions, our eyes have a role too.  All this movement eventually causes wrinkles in the skin around the eyes.  The eye is surrounded by a circular muscle that acts to open and close the eyelid.  The wrinkles that result from its movement, tend to form in lines radiating from the center of the eye.  These eye wrinkles can run up to the eyebrow and down to the cheek.  These under eye wrinkles are better known as Crows Feet. What causes Eye Wrinkles? Did you ever wonder why children don’t have eye wrinkles as they are constantly opening and closing their eyes too?  The answer is contained in the overall condition of the elasticity of the skin.  Children have a lot of elasticity and their skin easily and readily bounces back after movement.  However, as we age, we lose that elasticity and after a movement, the skin remains folded and an under eye wrinkle eventually forms. What causes the loss of skin elasticity? The easy answer is the sun.  Damaging UV rays from the sun, damage the two main components of the skin, collagen and elastin.  These proteins are the building blocks of skin and are critical for healthy, youthful appearing skin.   Sun damage not only damages collagen and elastin in the skin, but also decreases their production.  The result of the loss of collagen and elastin is skin that loses its elasticity and allows eye wrinkles to form. What can we do to treat eye wrinkles? There are several approaches to treat eye wrinkles.  The first involves relaxing the circular eye muscle around the eye that causes them.  Our goal is to relax the muscle’s movement, not paralyze it.  Botox and Xeomin, are well known neuromodulators that can serve this purpose.  A few relatively painless injections of Botox or Xeomin placed around the eye can help to reduce eye wrinkles and more importantly, prevent new eye wrinkles.  Botox and Xeomin last around 3-4 months, and continued maintenance is required.  If the wrinkles are real deep, then a dermal filler like Juvederm may be required.  Fillers like Juvederm can fill in the wrinkles and also replace lost under eye volume.  Botox and Juvederm work the best together to completely erase eye wrinkles. The other treatment for eye wrinkles is to improve the elasticity of the skin around the eye.  The easiest first step is to use an eye cream.  The most effective eye cream is a retinol or retinoid based product.  Retinol and retinoids actually activate the skin cells to produce new collagen and elastin, actually rejuvenating the skin.  There are many other products that are complementary to retinols and retinoids like Vitamin C, peptides, etc.  Of course none of these products are useful if you do not prevent more sun damage with a sunscreen. More advanced cases of sun damage and eye wrinkles, require procedures that can stimulate even more collagen production.  These procedures include chemical peels, microneedling and laser resurfacing.  Chemical peels can remove several layers of skin and sun damage, replacing it with new skin.  Microneedling involves the use of tiny needles that penetrate the lower layer of skin, the dermis.  The dermis is where collagen and elastin are produced, and the trauma from the microneedles induces the skin cells to produce more.  When the wrinkles and sun damage are severe, laser resurfacing may be needed.  Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing uses tiny laser beams to not only stimulate collagen and elastic production in the dermis, but to also remove the upper layers of the skin.  Each of these procedures have varying levels of discomfort and downtime, and a free consultation can help you decide on the best procedure for your needs.…

Dispelling Botox Myths

Botox Cosmetic has been around for more than 10 years now and has been injected hundreds of millions of times.  It has an unparalleled safety record.  Most people are pretty familiar with it and what it does.  However, there are still many myths about Botox.  Let’s look at some Botox myths: Botox Works Immediately Some patients will see effects from their Botox in 1-2 days, but most patients require 1-2 weeks for full effect.  Nobody will see an immediate result from Botox injections. Botox Fills Wrinkles Botox relaxes the muscles of facial expression that cause wrinkles.  Dermal fillers like Juvederm are needed in conjunction with Botox to fill wrinkles.  When used together, Botox and Juvederm can completely erase many lines and wrinkles. Botox is all I Need Botox is just one component of facial rejuvenation which also includes volume replacement with dermal fillers and collagen stimulation with microneedling, laser resurfacing, and products like retin-a.  Using Botox alone will leave you with less than optimal results. Botox is not for Men Botox works great in both men and women.  Men get the same wrinkles as women and greatly benefit from Botox injections.  Men tend to have bigger and stronger facial muscles, and usually require more units of Botox. Some Practices Dilute Botox Botox is supplied by its manufacturer as a freeze dried protein.  Everyone must mix the Botox with saline (salt water) to make it possible to inject it.  When Botox is sold by the unit, you are assured of knowing exactly how much Botox you are getting. Botox is a Poison Botox is a purified protein derived from the botulinim toxin and is not a poison.  When injected properly, Botox Cosmetic is very safe. Botox is Too Expensive When you look at the effects of Botox in reducing and prevent facial wrinkles and lines, Botox is a wise investment compared to many other less effective procedures and products. Athletic People need more Botox The amount of Botox needed depends on your facial muscles and several other factors.  Your level of physical activity usually doesn’t affect the amount of Botox needed. I only need Botox once in a While. The good and bad thing about Botox is that it will only last 3-4 months in most patients.  To keep up the effects, maintenance Botox injections are necessary.      …

Unfortunately, anytime a needle is used there is a risk of bruising afterwards.  When Botox and/or dermal fillers like Juvederm are injected, sometimes the needle may nick a small blood vessel.  This may produce a small bruise that will resolve on its own.  However, there are some things we can do to prevent this annoying side effect. Experienced Injectors Look for an injector that has a great deal of experience with injectables like Botox and Juvederm.  They have seen the complications like bruising and know how to avoid them.  But even the best injector will still sometimes get some bruising! Avoid Certain Medications Any medications that you are taking that interfere with your body’s ability to clot, can lead to bruising no matter how careful the injector is.  These include medications like Aspirin, Vitamin E, St. John’s Wort, Coumadin, Heparin, and Fish Oil.  If you are taking some of these supplements on your own, we would advise holding them for at least a week before your injections.  If your are taking them under the direction of a physician, please discuss holding them first with your provider. Supplements Certain supplements are commonly used to prevent bruising.  These include Arnica Montana and Bromelain.  They are both easy to find in your local pharmacy.  They can be taken before and after your injections to prevent bruising.  Bromelain is found naturally in pineapples! Avoid Trauma This means not rubbing or touching in any way your injection sites.  This also means not running or lifting weights for a few days.  If you do anything to increase your blood pressure, you can make any of those injection sites bleed and bruise. Elevation Do not immediately lay down after these injections.  This will increase blood flow to these areas and cause bruising. Cold Compresses Yes cold compresses work!  Not too hard though, as trauma will cause bruising.…

Microneedling Before and After.

I had the pleasure of having my first ever Microneedling with PRP procedure this summer. I wanted to take a moment to harp on how amazing this experience was for my skin care goals. If you’re curious about having this procedure, take a moment to read about my experience. I was blown away by the microneedling results and truly believe this procedure can do wonders on almost every skin type.  Check out my microneedling before and afters! Microneedling with PRP Preparation I have to say, I was pretty nervous going into this procedure. I have filmed Microneedling with PRP over a dozen times, so I felt like I had a pretty good grasp on how it works. The only thing I wasn’t sure about was the pain level. Every patient I had ever filmed remained calm while filming and all looked as though they were actually enjoying the procedure. I started to wonder if it hurt at all. I recruited Beleza expert injector and aesthetician, Emily Stimson, to administer my procedure who, in my humble opinion, is a MicroPen Master. When I arrived at Beleza in Cedar Park to undergo this procedure, Emily immediately began applying numbing cream to my face and explained how important the numbing cream is for microneedling — my nerves definitely grew stronger at this point. The numbing cream needs about 20-25 minutes to kick in (and we weren’t starting even 1 minute early). During that time, Emily drew my blood for the PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma. If you have a tendency to get queasy from having your blood drawn, rest assured this is a cakewalk compared to most vials. This is a TINY vial. It takes about 30 seconds for it to fill up. From there, the vial is placed into a centrifuge where it spins for 30 minutes. The centrifuge is a vital part of this procedure because it activates your blood cells and forces them to separate and release growth factors. This part of your blood is called PRP. We can use the growth factors in the PRP for cosmetic purposes to trigger your body’s repair mechanisms for skin rejuvenation. MICRONEEDLING PROCEDURE Once Emily had the syringes loaded with my body’s PRP, it was time to remove the numbing cream (gulp). By this time, I was definitely numb, but of course still nervous about the pain. Emily cleaned my face to remove the numbing cream and then applied the MicroGlide Hyaluronic Acid and the PRP to the skin. Here we go, time to microneedle! I was pleasantly surprised at the low about of pain for this procedure. You definitely can feel it, and some areas are more sensitive than others, but this procedure was a piece of cake! Anyone should be able to tolerate the pain from microneedling, if you even want to call it “pain”. Emily worked in small 1-2 inch sections. She would apply the MicroGlide and PRP on to each section and then microneedle over the 1-2 inch sections. The PRP dries so fast, so she was careful to not microneedle over a dry area. She started with my cheeks, then my chin, then the nose (which tickled SO much), then forehead, and then finished on my neck. It was over before I knew it. On a scale of 1-10, (10 being the most amount of pain), I would say there were a few areas that got up to a 6 on the pain level, but they only lasted for about a minute. The majority of the time I felt like the pain level was between a 3-4. Injections during a Microneedling with PRP treatment? The biggest myth about this procedure is that your own blood is injected into your skin. This is so false! There are no injections during this procedure. Should you want to go with a Microneedling with PRP (which includes a syringe of Voluma), or should you want to inject your PRP into the dermis of your skin, then yes, there would be injections. But, for a standard Microneedling with PRP) there are no injections. The PRP is simply applied onto your skin and then your provider performs microneedling over the PRP. After Microneedling with PRP Following my procedure, I followed Emily’s instructions very carefully to ensure I would have the best results. Beleza also provides take-home instructions for every patient, so you don’t have to worry about your post care. I was instructed to wait at least 4 hours before washing the PRP off my face, I ended up waiting 6 hours just because I didn’t have any reason to wash my face. I applied Hyaluronic Acid every hour during that 6 hours. After 6 hours, I washed my face using Elta MD’s Foaming Facial Cleanser with cool  water and then applied more Hyaluronic Acid and went to bed. It is important not to use sunscreen for at least 48 hours following your procedure. If you need to be outdoors, be sure to bring a hat or scarf. I continued this regime night and day for 2 days. At the end of the second day, I began to use SkinMedica’s TNS Recovery Complex, SkinMedica’s HA5, and Elta MD facial sunscreen, only…

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. Microneedling Austin @Beleza MedSpa Beleza Medspa utilizes Eclipse Micropens for microneedling procedures.  The Micropen uses disposable tips that has twelve (12) stainless steel micro‐needles (32‐gauge) which can be adjusted from 0.25 to 2.75 mm, giving physicians and aestheticians an innovative skin therapy system that is designed to cater to individual patient needs.  The Micropen is motorized and the high speed (8500 rpm) automated needling motion minimizes pain and discomfort, while better promoting an even absorption of topicals, acids and peptides into the skin which enhances overall results.  Microneedling with PRP can provide even better results.…

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, Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra PlusJuvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus are injectable gels that temporarily add more fullness and plump to thin lips—whether your lips have thinned over time or you simply want fuller lips, Ultra or Ultra Plus is a great choice for your lip injections. Juvederm Volbella is a crystal-clear gel used for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral lines, often called “lipstick lines” in adults. The lidocaine gel improves the comfort of the injection by reducing sensitivity to pain. Volbella goes in like a “sheet” to fill lines without creating any volume, while Ultra or Ultra Plus will give you that plumpness or fullness in your lips. As mentioned, we recommend having one of our very talented filler injectors recommend the right filler for your lips. Lip Injection SPECIALS at Beleza To help with the sticker shock of Juvederm syringe prices, Beleza offers many Juvederm Specials throughout the year. Every week, we have “Filler Fridays” where you can receive a SkinMedica Retinol with your filler purchase for an extra kick-back. We also have quarterly open house events where we almost always place our fillers on sale (and we have been known to raffle off syringes!) In addition, we offer our Beleza Babe VIP Memberships where you can receive up to $100 off each syringe you purchase throughout the year. (PSST – the membership ends up paying for itself with all of the savings!) And, lastly, don’t forget you will always earn Brilliant Distinctions points on your Allergan purchases throughout the year (Botox, Juvederm, Latisse, SkinMedica, Kybella, and newly added to the program, CoolSculpting), which can be used towards future Allergan purchases. Essentially, if you play your cards right, you can practically get your lips done for next to nothing!

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.

Botox Austin Specials

Looking for Botox Austin Specials? There are many practices advertising Botox specials in Austin.  How do you choose?  How do you know if they are real? Botox Cost There is only one manufacturer of Botox in the U.S., Allergan.  Allergan sells Botox to doctors for a fixed price.  Everyone pays the same price.  The practices then mark up the Botox price to include the salary of the injector, the facilities, the insurance, the marketing and maybe a little profit.   Remember the Botox price includes the fee to inject it.   This leads to a Botox price of anywhere from $11-18 a unit. Botox Deals There are many too good to be true Botox deals out there including Groupon.  If the Botox price is less than half the usual Botox cost, then its most likely the Botox is from the black market. Illegally obtained Botox cannot be guaranteed for safety or results.  The other thing to look out for with these Botox deals is who is injecting the Botox?  Who is the doctor in charge?  What happens if something goes wrong?  Do they have the expertise to give me good results and recommend complementary procedures and products? Brilliant Distinctions Allergan sponsors a program to reward regular users of Botox, Juvederm and Skinmedica products.  It is definitely advantageous to join Brilliant Distinctions as you can earn rewards every time you spend!
