Discover BraBella: Kybella on the Bra Line

BraBella: Kybella on the Bra Rolls Ladies: let’s be honest. We all have that insanely bothersome “bulge” next to the armpits. There have been several nicknames for this extremely undesirable, but very common, condition: The Pit Pooch, Armpit Fat, Bra Bulge,  Bra rolls, Armpit Vagina, the list goes on and on. Even celebrities are suffering! It’s time we put an end to this era and stop suffering in silence. Say goodbye to that unwanted bra bulge! What is BraBella? Say hello to your new best friend at Beleza: BraBella. BraBella is the newest procedure to hit the pits and we’re blown away by the results. Kybella (deoxycholic acid) is a FDA approved injectable that kills and destroys fat cells under the chin. While it is only FDA approved under the chin, practices around the country are performing “off-label” Kybella procedures and seeing amazing results. When Kybella is injected into the bra line to dissolve the unwanted bra bulge, we now have what the kids on the streets are calling “BraBella.” BraBella Cost Unlike most injectables, Kybella is sold by the vial. One vial of Kybella retails for $600. While consultations are required for all Kybella or BraBella procedures, we have found most patients require at least 2 vials for their first treatment of BraBella. Some patients only need one treatment, but others may need 2-3 additional treatments. It all depends on the amount of submental fat in the area. BraBella Downtime Of course, with most every procedure, there is some downtime. With a full treatment of BraBella, it takes at least 4-6 weeks for the product to dissolve the submental fat. Patients typically require 2-3 treatments, roughly 6-12 weeks apart, so it can take some time to see a result. Tenderness and swelling will occur immediately after the procedure and can last for as least 1-2 weeks post-procedure. Over the weeks to follow, that unwanted fat pocket will disappear gradually. The swelling can definitely be bothersome to most everyone, so it is best to plan out your BraBella treatment when you can hide under sweaters and jackets (and not right before a trip where you will be in a bikini or tank top!) Am I Candidate for BraBella? Most likely, YES! Book your consultation today to find out if you’re a candidate. This is an amazing noninvasive option for those who do not want to go under the knife to zap that unwanted bra bulge. Not to mention you will be in and out in 30 minutes or less! 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 BraBella 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.

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.
