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.

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.

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 BelezaTo 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!Lip Injection ExpertsAt Beleza MedSpa, we pride ourself on having the top injectors in Austin (maybe even Texas!). As a Top 25 Allergan Aesthetic Practice (*2016) in the country, (AKA Black Diamond Practice), all Beleza MedSpa injectors receive the highest level of training from Allergan directly.

What Botox will do to your expression?

What is Botox? Botox has been around for cosmetic purposes more than 10 years.  It has safely been injected in millions of patients.  Botox is a purified protein that used to relax the muscles of facial expression that cause wrinkles.  Repeated activity of facial muscles will eventually causes lines and wrinkles in the skin.  Botox injected into these muscles causes these wrinkles to not only smooth out, but also to prevent them.  But what will Botox do to your facial expression? What Botox will do to your facial expression. The goal of Botox injections is not to completely freeze the muscles, but to relax them enough to smooth and prevent wrinkles.  So what Botox does to your facial expression is usually good. Relaxing frown lines can make you look less angry and tired.  Botox forehead is used to perform a brow lift.  Botox crow’s-feet can make your eyes look wider.  Botox lips can make your lips poutier.  All of these effects from Botox will make you look younger and more refreshed but still have normal facial expressions. How to get rid of facial wrinkles. The first thing to remember is those wrinkles didn’t form overnight and will not go away overnight either.  Getting rid of wrinkles takes a multi-faceted approach coupled with continued maintenance.  There is no miracle cure that will take care of every wrinkle.  A general understanding of why wrinkles form is needed to properly treat them. What is Collagen? The building block of skin is collagen.  When we are younger we make plenty of collagen and its all in good shape.  As we age, mostly due to sun exposure, our collagen production slows down even to the point of losing collagen.  This loss of collagen causes wrinkles, sagging and generally older looking skin.  The key to treating wrinkles is to identify the factors contributing to loss of collagen and restarting collagen production.A great way to look at getting rid of wrinkles is to imagine the face as a canvas.  The canvas itself is your facial skin.  Things like Botox and Juvederm are the paint.   With a fresh, new canvas, an artist can paint a beautiful picture.  However, starting with a damaged canvas, even the best artist will have difficulty painting on it.  So trying to use Botox and Juvederm to fix wrinkles on sun damaged skin will also not be very effective.  The best first step is to rebuild the canvas, the facial skin, so that Botox and Juvederm can do what they are designed to do. Collagen Stimulation. So how do we restart collagen production?  The cells that produce collagen are in the deep layer of the skin, the dermis.  We must reach them and stimulate them to produce new collagen. There are several ways to do this.  Laser resurfacing is the gold standard and involves a Fractional CO2 laser.  The laser beam penetrates the dermis and directly stimulates the collagen cells.  The heat generated by the laser also causes the upper sun-damaged layer of skin to peel while causing the collagen already present to tighten.  Laser resurfacing produces great results but does have 7 days of recovery.An easier, less aggressive method to stimulate collagen production is microneedling.  Microneedling uses multiple small needles to penetrate into the dermis and directly stimulate the collagen cells.  Performed in-office under local anesthesia and has much less recovery than laser resurfacing.  It is repeated every 6 weeks to get maximum collagen stimulation. Skin Care. Skin care products are also key to stimulate collagen production and keeping it going.  No reason to spend money on expensive procedures and not protect you investment with the right skin care products.  Retin A and other retinols directly stimulates collagen cells to make collagen.  If one product is used, it is Retin a for its anti-aging properties.  There are many other growth factors, peptides and antioxidants that are able to promote and prolong collagen production. Botox and Juvederm. So we have now rebuilt the canvas with collagen stimulation procedures and we are maintaining it with skin care products.  This is a great time to add Botox and Juvederm to our regimen. Botox injections, as we previously discussed, relax the muscles of facial expression causing facial wrinkles.  Juvederm allows us to fix the other major sign of facial aging, volume loss.  Cheeks are refilled, lines smoothed and lips plumped.  The combination of collagen stimulation with Botox and Juvederm, gives you long-lasting results.…

Kelly Rutherford is like many American moms.  She is has a professional career (movie and TV actress), has been divorced and is a single mom.  At age 46, she has kept herself looking fresh and young to match her active lifestyle. She looks natural and her age and is aging gracefully!  What are her secrets?A recent interview gave us some insight on Kelly’s thoughts about her skin care regimen: “Hilary Sheinbaum: What does your beauty regimen consist of? Kelly Rutherford: A lot of it has to do with eating healthy. I’ve noticed over the years – that has helped a lot, whether it’s juices or eating all organic at home. That’s a lot of sunscreen! I think a lot of it is preventing everything. Otherwise you have to go in and pay a lot of money to have it all fixed later. Speaking of which, what are your thoughts on cosmetic enhancements? At a certain age, there’s only so much you can do, even if you take care of yourself. If you want that look, you have to get Botox or fillers as you get older. It’s a bigger price to pay. We all just do the best we can with what we have. There’s nothing wrong with it. I get Botox. I think it’s great – a little here, there. Preventative. When did you start getting Botox? I didn’t get it until I was 40. I kind of waited. I really felt like I was starting to see some deep lines and really just wanted to prevent them from getting worse/deeper. You can use it in a light way, a light touch. Everyone’s different. Everyone likes a different look. It’s what makes people feel good about themselves. I do a little bit here and there.” (quote from Yahoo Beauty) Kelly represents our typical Beleza Medspa patient.  Busy and active with a lot of responsibility.  She wants to maintain her looks but does not want to look 25 again.  She does not want to look plastic or like someone else, just a rested version of herself. At Beleza Medspa we are experts at skin rejuvenation and aging.  Our goal is always to let you age gracefully but help you maintain a fresh and youthful appearance.  This involves judicious use of injectables like Botox and Juvederm, skin resurfacing like lasers and chemical peels, skin maintenance like photofacials and hydrafacials and regular use of medical grade skin care products like SkinMedica.  Occasionally, cosmetic surgery has its place too. Beleza Medspa makes regular maintenance of your appearance convenient and affordable with our Beleza Babe VIP Program and our New Fresh Skin Club.  Contact us now for your free consultation!…

When clients think of fillers like Botox and Juvederm, they often shudder at the thought of being repeatedly stuck with a needle. Is it painful? Will it leave scars? Will there be swelling? These are some of the top questions asked.But Does Beauty Have to Mean Pain?In the past, many of us have heard the term “no pain no gain”. Now this doesn’t have to be the case with new and improved methods to maintain beauty. Microcannula filler injections promise a less painful approach to getting noninvasive cosmetic procedures done, like fillers in the form of Juvederm, Restylane, Botox and others.What Is It And How Does It Work?The pain we feel from needles doesn’t necessarily occur from the surface point. This pain surfaces when needles penetrate deep into the layers of the skin. To counteract this, experts now make a small entryway from the surface, and then insert a smaller, duller and hollowed microcannula needle to inject the filler.The cannulas are characterized by fine and flexible tubes that can be inserted at the puncture marks of traditional needles. Each target area for fillers will require between one and five entryways to get the best results. These results usually mean plump and more youthful looking skin.Microcannulas are furthermore adapted for processes like Liposuction to minimize the risks of scarring and pain.Benefits of Microcannula Injections:~Lowered risk of bleeding and more rapid recovery times. ~Lowered risk of pain and discomfort during and after the filler injections. ~Lowered risk of rupturing blood vessels in the face. ~Lowered risk of surrounding tissues becoming damaged from repeat injections. ~No local anesthesia is required before or during the process.Benefits of FillersMost popular fillers provide the following benefits:~Increase cheek volume ~Remove fine lines and wrinkles ~Remove under eye circles ~Reverse other signs of agingFillers can be painful nevertheless, due to the areas usually targeted. The lips for instance are more delicate than other areas of the body due to thin skin. Microcannulas nevertheless, revolutionize the process, and to ensure no pain, the surgeon may still prescribe medicines for relief.When it comes to noninvasive methods of reversing and/or preventing the signs of aging, fillers come in on the top tier of effective lists – even though injections are administered.Ultimately, microcannula fillers are considered to be a more sane and practical method to look beautiful – in the least invasive way possible.

Medical Spas: Right for You?

Med Spa Austin TX Going to a medical spa can be a relaxing and enjoyable experience as well as a way to get some actual medical procedures and treatments. Med spas are considered a combination of a medical clinic and a day spa, but the procedures and treatments that can be administered are less than what an actual medical clinic is capable of.Services Performed at Med Spas There are many services performed at med spas. From basic spa treatments like massages and exfoliations to Botox and Hydrafacials, med spas have it all. Some other treatments include facials, waxing, massages, concierge medicine, men’s health, physicals, laser hair removal and much more depending on which type of spa that you are visiting and where the spa is located. The treatments and procedures available at a med spa vary by location because there are different laws and regulations that each state and/or country has to abide by.Training Required for Med Spa Physicians & Practitioners As stated before, the type of training and certifications required vary by area. One common factor is that everyone who administers a treatment or procedure is supposed to be trained, qualified and certified for that treatment. If you are ever doubtful of a staff member’s qualifications, all you have to do is ask to see the person’s certifications.Choosing a Med Spa that is Right for You The best way to choose the med spa that is right for you is by researching what you want and/or need. Using a search engine on the internet can be helpful in finding reviews, but reviews are not always trustworthy sources when dealing with anything health related. Sometimes you can get references from your primary physician, but even family and friends are great resources for finding a trustworthy clinic. What you decide to do is completely up to you, but it is highly recommended that you research the clinic before scheduling an appointment.Best Med Spa Austin Beleza Medspa Austin has been in business for more than 10 years.  It has successfully treated tens of thousands of patients in Austin, Round Rock, Cedar Park and Killeen TX.  It is among the leaders in Botox & Juvederm, Hydrafacials, Microneedling, Coolsculpting and Ultherapy.  It has multiple locations with highly experienced and trained staff.  All staff are trained by the physician owner, Dr Lawrence Broder MD.  This is why you may consider Beleza Medspa the Best Med Spa Austin!…
