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.

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. Call or email us to book your FREE consultation today: info@belezamedicalspa.com or 1.800.509.9785.At Beleza MedSpa, we pride ourself on having the top injectors in Austin (maybe even Texas!). As a Top 25 Allergan Aesthetic Practice in the country, (AKA Black Diamond Practice), all Beleza MedSpa injectors receive the highest level of training from Allergan directly.

Allure Magazine announced their highly-anticipated Best of Beauty Breakthrough Awards this week recognizing the best-of-the-best in various beauty categories. Beleza was especially pleased to see that Allure awarded the 2017 Best of Beauty Breakthrough Award to three of our top-selling (and personal favorite) products: Juvéderm Volbella® XC, SkinBetter Science Alto Defense Serum, and SkinMedica® Lytera 2.0 Pigment Correcting Serum.What is  Juvéderm Volbella® XC?Juvéderm Volbella® XC (Volbella) is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler used for lip augmentation and for the correction of perioral lines, often called “lipstick lines” in adults. The lidocaine gel improves the comfort of the injection by reducing sensitivity to pain. Allergan’s new formulation in the product, the Vycross technology, separates this filler from other dermal fillers. It produces natural, softer lips and patients experience less swelling after the injections.“It’s made with a lower concentration of hyaluronic acid than any other filler out there, so it has a soft consistency and is the best option for anyone who wants a very natural look,” says Jessica Wu, a dermatologist in Los Angeles. (Allure).Where can I buy Volbella?As an added convenience to our patients, Beleza offers Volbella at all four locations making it easy on your commute to finally get those lips done. I might be a little biased, but Beleza truly does have some of the top injectors in Austin (and maybe even Texas!). As a Top 25 Allergan Aesthetic Practice in the country, (AKA Black Diamond Practice), all Beleza MedSpa injectors receive the highest level of training from Allergan directly on all injectables, including Volbella.

Take a seat at the big kids table and let us take care of your new perfect pout. Call or email us to book your FREE consultation: 1.800.509.9785.Click here to check out some of our before and after photos!What is Skinbetter Science Alto Defense Serum?

Botox for Crow’s Feet

Does Botox work on crows feet? Do you struggle with lateral canthal lines, or crow’s feet around your eyes? If so, Botox for Crow’s Feet  may be a great solution for your concerns. Beleza has always offered Botox treatments for crow’s feet, but this application of Botox was recently approved by the FDA, meaning it is no longer an off-label use of the drug.Botox for crow’s feet is injected directly into the muscle around the eyes that causes the scrunching at the outer corners that ages our faces and causes us to look tired. Botox works to prevent those muscles from contracting, meaning that the lines caused by those muscles will not appear for 3 – 4 months after a Botox treatment. Regular use of Botox can extend the drugs’ period of efficacy.In many cases, the number of units of Botox needed to address a particular issue varies from patient to patient based on the depth of the wrinkle, the strength of the muscle and how regularly Botox is applied.How long does botox take to work around the eyes As a general rule, and as approved by the FDA, Botox for crow’s feet can be expected to require 15 – 20 units per eye. If you’ve never had Botox before, it’s a great idea to come in for a free consultation to determine your ideal number of units and a final cost.  Botox for Crow’s Feet takes 1-2 days to see some effect and up to 2 weeks to see full effect.There are still many areas of the face and neck that Botox can be used off-label. Off-label uses are completely safe if administered in normal doses and by an experienced professional injector. Beleza uses Botox in the neck to diminish lateral lines, at the arch in the brow to lessen appearance of heavy eyelids, and above the lip to enhance the “pout” of the upper lip.Botox for crow’s feet is a long used off-label application and we expect that many more applications for Botox will be FDA approved in upcoming years. Botox is one of the most versatile drugs available in the aesthetic market and is even used to treat non-aesthetic needs like headaches, joint pain and anxiety.Botox for crow’s feet is an ideal treatment for anyone with concerns about the aging of the eye area, and as always, it is an extremely safe way to use Botox. But, with the new FDA approval of Botox for crow’s feet, patients can be even more sure of the drug’s safety and efficacy in the trouble area around the eyes. Botox crows feet cost Botox for crow’s feet may need anywhere from 10-15 units of Botox per eye.  So the Botox cost will be anywhere from $240-$360.  You can get much lower Botox prices with our Beleza VIP program and Brilliant Distinctions.…

Dysport Vs Botox

Botox or Dysport? Thanks to the popularity of the product, the brand name Botox has become a lot like the brand name Kleenex – interchangeable with the product name itself. Because of this, we have many patients who wonder what the difference between Botox and Dysport is, and often assume that Dysport is comparable to the off-brand of the product.The truth is that Botox and Dysport work in the exact same way. Both are made of botulinum toxin A, a purified protein that works by relaxing targeted muscles. When the muscles in your forehead are relaxed, you are unable to make the expression that causes those troublesome “11s” and horizontal folds in the skin of the forehead.In this way, both Dysport and Botox help patients appear younger by smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles caused by muscle movement. Because the products are made of the same thing, they work in really similar ways and so  it is difficult for many patients to discern a difference between the two products. In many cases, the use of Botox or Dysport boils down to injector and patient preference; many providers offer both options to patients who can try each and decide what works best for them.By in large, Beleza uses Botox for most patients and is a Black Diamond level injector of Botox and other Allergan products, like Juvederm. However, we do offer Dysport for the patients who prefer it. One of the advantages we hear from Dysport users who have tried both products is that they feel Dysport sets in more quickly than Botox. The reason for this is that the Dysport protein is smaller so it is absorbed more quickly, and it is known to spread quicker, which may also contribute to the faster onset. Dysport Cost Another one of Dysports’ advantages can be deceiving. Dysport is offered at a much lower per unit price than Botox, which makes it seem much less expensive. The reason this is misleading is that Dysport often requires more units per area than Botox, because it is more highly diluted than Botox. The increase in number of units required makes the bottom line cost about the same for Botox and Dysport users.The bottom line is that Botox and Dysport last about the same about of time, 3-4 months. And, each product is about equally effective, with Dysport occasionally scoring higher in patient preference studies and Botox occasionally scoring higher. Dysport Side Effects Many patients prefer Botox because it is a household name (been around more than 10 years) and because it is so commonly used. They worry that the newer product to the market will come with unknown side effects. The truth is that neither substance has many negative side effects and a patient should always discuss the potential for side effects with the injector before the procedure begins.The differences between Botox and Dysport are few, so the best way to decide is to try both and figure out which you like best!…
