Botox is a brand name from the company Allergan and is derived from the bacteria clostridium botulinim.  It is this bacteria that produces the protein that interrupts nerve transmission to muscles.

Botox cosmetic is a purified protein that is used to relax the muscles of facial expression that cause wrinkles.  Botox cosmetic is injected directly into specific facial muscles to relax them, and reduce and prevent facial wrinkles. How Long Does Botox Last? Botox injections will produce some effects in 1-2 days and full effect may take 1-2 weeks.  The effect of Botox Cosmetic will usually last 3-4 months.  If Botox injections are repeated before the effects completely wears off, the Botox effect may last even longer.

Botox can be used to relax many facial muscles producing wrinkles including frown lines, forehead lines, crows feet, bunny scrunch, lipstick lines and chin dimpling.  Botox can also be used to produce a brow lift and a lip flip. How much Botox do I need?

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 extensive experience in administering this procedure. Care must be taken to use enough Botox to see an effect, but not too much to affect the ability to use a straw. How much does the Botox Lip Flip Cost? We have seen patients need 2-4 units for the Botox Lip Flip, and we have seen patients need up to 6 units. Beleza charges $12/unit, so it will depend how many units the provider recommends. Typically, only 1-2 units of Botox is needed in each lip line. Say you need $6 units, your cost would be only $72! If you are a Beleza VIP member, it would be even lower! Platinum Members receive Botox for $10.50/unit, so it would cost $63 if you are Platinum Member receiving $6 units. To learn more about our Beleza Babe VIP program, click here. And, don’t forget you will earn those valuable Brilliant Distinctions points with all of your Botox purchases! How long does the Botox Lip Flip last? The ONLY catch with the Botox Lip Flip is how long it lasts. Typically, Botox in the lips only lasts about 6-8 weeks, but for the cost, you’ll definitely get your money’s worth and LOVE your pout. One good thing about Botox in the lips is that you typically don’t have to wait the full 7 days to see results, the lip flips right away (results can vary). While Botox in other areas of the face lasts 3-4 month, it also can take up to 14 days to kick in. Botox Lip Flip usually hits right away. Where can I get the Botox Lip Flip? With Beleza, of course! Our medical professionals are highly experienced in administering Botox and can answer any questions you may have about the process. As an added convenience to our patients, Beleza has Botox injectors at all four locations making it easy on your commute to try out the Botox Lip Flip.

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! Botox Austin Specials @Beleza Medspa Beleza Medspa has been providing Botox Austin Specials since 2007.  Some of our most popular ways to save: Botox Tuesdays New patients get a free Skinmedica Retinol with their Botox Tuesdays.  The $60 retinol will make your Botox results even better!

Botox Injections

Looking for Botox Injections in Austin TX? There are many things to consider when you are looking for Botox injections in Austin.  There are many choices including med spas, dermatologists and plastic surgeons.  Some things to keep in mind include Botox cost, Botox side effects and safety and Botox alternatives. Botox Injections. Botox cosmetic is a purified protein that has been injected for more than 10 years to relax the muscles of facial expression that cause wrinkles. The Botox is carefully injected using very small needles during a 15 minute office visit.  There is no downtime and you can return to normal activities immediately.  Genuine Botox Cosmetic only comes from Allergan in the U.S.  It’s important that the Botox practice is certified by Allergan and not using black market and illegal Botox. Botox Side Effects & Safety Botox has a remarkable safety record.  If injected by well-trained and experienced injectors, Botox side effects are extremely rare.  Common side effects are due to the needle itself to include occasional bruising and swelling. Botox Injections Cost. When looking for Botox injections, shop around for the Botox cost by price per unit.  This allows you to make direct comparisons and ensures you are getting the amount of Botox you paid for.  Do not buy Botox by the area or the volume.  How much does Botox cost? Botox Alternatives. There are several other neurotoxins on the market that work similar to Botox.  Dysport is the most popular one.   However, none of the Botox alternatives rival Botox Cosmetic for safety, price or effectiveness.

Botox Forehead Lines

What are Forehead lines? We all have them, some more than others.  Those pesky forehead wrinkles can really age you and make you look sad, tired and worried.  Where do they come from?  The horizontal creases seen on the forehead skin are due to the actions of the underlying muscle, the frontalis.  The frontalis muscle runs up and down from your brow to your scalp.  It serves to raise the brow to open up the eyes.  It is this action that causes the forehead lines.  When it contracts, the overlying skin bunches up and forms a crease perpendicular to the up down action of the muscle.  When you are younger, the skin is in good shape and once the muscle relaxes, the skin snaps back and the line disappears.  These are called dynamic lines.  As we age, the skin loses elasticity due to loss of collagen from sun damage.  All of a sudden, those lines don’t go away when the muscle relaxes.  As a result, the forehead lines are there all the time or become static wrinkles. How do I get rid of forehead wrinkles? So as you can see, the frontalis muscle has to be relaxed to do anything about forehead lines.  Botox is ideal for this purposes.  Botox is a purified protein that is injected to relax the muscles of facial expression.  Anywhere from 10-20 units of Botox can relax the muscle just enough to diminish or even erase the wrinkles.  The good thing is that by relaxing the muscle, the wrinkles will not get worse.  So Botox acts as a preventative treatment.  The effect will last 3-4 months and with regular use, it can last even longer. If the forehead lines are deep and have been there for a long period of time, dermal fillers may be necessary. Relaxing the forehead with Botox can only do so much. Dermal fillers like Juvederm can fill these deep ridges and when in combination with Botox, they can make the lines essentially disappear! But as we mentioned earlier, the loss of collagen and skin elasticity is also a factor.  To begin to reverse the signs of sun damage we can use products like SkinMedica retinol, laser resurfacing, microneedling and radiofrequency treatments.  These are all designed to stimulate collagen production and restore skin elasticity.  Sunscreen and a hat to prevent further damage is critical! Do forehead lines indicate other problems? Remember that the frontalis muscle lifts the brow to open the eyes.  Some people have hooding or excess skin of their upper eyelids (ptosis).  The droopy upper eyelids actually decrease their field of vision. As a result, these people continually contract their frontalis muscle to open their eyes up.  If they Botox their foreheads, the brow will drop and their field of vision will be decreased!  Hooded upper eyelids have to be dealt with laser tightening or a blepharoplasty. Brow Shaping and Brow Lifts The goal of Botox is not to just freeze the muscles.  The brow is a complicated place with multiple muscles pulling it up and down.  An experienced Botox injector must know their way around the brow and how Botox can shape it.  There are also differences between the sexes in brow shapes.  Most women prefer an arched brow and most men like a heavy, flat brow.  Proper injection of Botox can actually simulate a brow lift in many women.  It is important to give the patient the type of brow the prefer.

Botox: More Popular than Ever! Consistent with a recent Reuter’s report, Botox has been on a steady climb, overtaking breast augmentation as the most popular cosmetic procedure to date. So what can be accredited to the rising demand of Botox?  What are some Botox Uses? These factors may play a role: Botox Is Affordable – there are several payment options available, and patients are able to schedule treatments at times that are convenient to them. Non-Surgical – Botox is considered to be a non-invasive method of treating or preventing the signs of aging. Botox Has Little Downtime – many people schedule Botox injections, and then return to work the very same day. The results are furthermore inconspicuous, so no one has to know that you’ve undergone treatment – as is the case with a facial lift for instance. Considerations When Getting Botox: The treatment needs to be reoccurring in order to maintain the effects of soft, smooth skin. The doctor will recommend the best times between each session – for a natural appearance.  How long does Botox Last? Botox is recommended no more than once or twice a year, but depending on the client’s appearance, these doses can be increased – with the green light from a medical professional. Botox and your expression Botox uses a purified protein, which is technically a neurotoxin. Its effects include stopping muscle contractions, while simultaneously softening fine lines and wrinkles. Clients are able to see dramatic results, and restore how they once were in their youth. Today, even younger adults are opting for Botox – to prevent wrinkles and aging before it happens. It’s one of the quintessential fountains of youth. The doctor may use different amounts of Botox based on the patient’s response to treatment. How many units of Botox do I need? Health Impacts of Botox Uses: Botox treatments are also widely used for health issues like headaches, given that nerve tissues are located in the facial area, and these send signals that cause migraines. Botox can furthermore be used to treat jaw pain, sweating in the underarms and even depression – in some cases. Other uses for Botox include stopping or minimizing muscle spasms, as well as the teeth grinding habit that’s medically known as bruxism. It’s important to go over all the details with your doctor to grasp what to expect in terms of recovery and cost. Today, Botox is no longer a hidden agenda – as individuals are scheduling it as routinely as a dentist’s visit.  …

After Botox Injections Care Instructions

What happens after Botox injections? Immediately after Botox injections, you may leave the office with a few bumps. These bumps consist of the botox that was injected either under the skin or in the muscle.  No need to worry as they will resolve on their own in 5-10 minutes.   You do not need to rub them or do any facial exercises to help them resolve.  Just give them time and they will slowly vanish! Once the bumps resolve, the only other thing to look for after botox is an occasional bruise.  Botox injections are mostly a blind procedure and no matter how much we try to avoid it, we may hit a blood vessel.  The area around the eyes  is especially prone to bruising.  The good thing is that bruises will all resolve on their own with time. Botox Cosmetic Effects It then becomes a waiting game as we wait for the botox to take effect.  In most patients some effects of the botox will be seen within a few days. The muscles that were injected will begin to become weaker and their associated wrinkles will resolve.  Full effect of Botox may take up to two weeks.  It is important to wait a full two weeks before judging the results of your botox injections.  Botox side effects can include bruising and headaches. How long does Botox Last? The effects of botox injections will typically last 3-4 months.  If you stay on a regular schedule, the muscles will remain in a weakened state. Studies have shown the subsequent botox injections will tend to last even longer if you do not allow the effects to completely wear off.  There are patients who the effects of Botox will be shorter than average or longer.  There is no way to predict or change the results for these patients. Zinc-Zytaste There are no tricks to prolonging the effects of Botox.  The best strategy is to return for injections when you see about 50% of the muscle action return.  By keeping the muscles in a continually weakened state, the effects of Botox can be maximized.  Of interest is the recent introduction of a supplement called Zytaste.  Zytaste consists of zinc and an enzyme called phytase which increases the zinc absorption.  Zinc appears to be important for the effects of Botox on the muscles.  In one study 92% of subjects who took Zytaste experienced a 30% average increase in duration effect of the injected neurotoxin. More importantly, 84% of the study participants reported a subjective improvement in the drug effect.  It is believed that many patients have a zinc deficiency and that’s why the Zytatse helped the Botox effects.  It may be worthwhile to check zinc levels in patients who complain of short duration botox effects.
