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.

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. When it comes to lips, well, our injectors take it to a new level. …

Kylie Jenner: Puberty or Plastic Surgery? Kylie Jenner has grown up in front of the world.  Starting at age 11, the reality star has now transformed herself into a glamorous business woman with millions of fans around the world.  Being around a family that embraces plastic surgery, Kylie Jenner admitted to the use of lip fillers at age 16.  It is obvious now that the further changes in her appearance are not just due to puberty, but to a combination of plastic surgery procedures.  Although Kylie is a naturally pretty woman, she has further enhanced her beauty. Kylie Jenner Facial Plastic Surgery Procedures. Kylie has admitted to the use of lip fillers due to her small lips.  Seeking poutier lips, she has had lip injections with a filler like Juvederm.  Performed in-office, lip injections are safe but have a limited lifespan of around 4-6 months.  Those seeking longer term results, can try fat transfer to the lips. Kylie also appears to be using Botox to alter her facial muscles.  She appears to have a Botox Brow Lift and a Botox Lip Flip.  She has also most likely had microneedling with PRP to improve her skin texture.  Kylie Jenner Breast Surgery. Kylie appears to have a dramatic change in the size and shape of her breasts.  This was most likely accomplished with breast augmentation using breast implants.  Breast Augmentation provides immediate, long-lasting results.  Breast augmentation can also be performed with fat transfer in many cases. Kylie Jenner Butt Surgery Kylie has also unveiled a new figure complete with a smaller waist and bigger butt.  This was most likely accomplished with a Brazilian Butt Lift or Buttock Implants.  The Brazilian Butt Lift combines aggressive body contouring with liposuction to make a smaller waist and back.  The fat removed is then transferred to the buttocks to increase the size and provide a change in shape and lift.  This procedure can be performed in-office under local anesthesia.  Buttock implants involve the use of silicone inserts inserted into the buttocks under general anesthesia. Like Kylie Jenner’s Plastic Surgery Transformation? Even though she is young, Kylie has dramatically changed her appearance with plastic surgery.  If you are interested in some or all of these procedures, Beleza Medspa offers free consultations to discuss your personal goals.  Austin Plastic Surgeon Dr. Staci Hix-Hernandez MD, is an expert at body contouring, breast augmentations, Brazilian Butt Lifts and Lip Injections.  …

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.

Click here to check out some of our before and after photos! What is Skinbetter Science Alto Defense Serum? Let’s just put it this way: Alto is THE antioxidant to buy.

Alto Defense literally takes being an antioxidant to a new level. It is a lightweight, powerful, innovative serum that contains 19 different antioxidants to protect your skin from nasty cell-damaging, wrinkle-causing free radicals. Yes, we said 19!

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!

Lip Injections Austin.

What are lip injections? Beautiful, pouty lips are something all women want.  Unfortunately not all of us are born with such lips.   Even worse, as we age, we lose volume in our lips and they tend to roll inwards.  The good news is that there are safe lip injections that can produce more aesthetically pleasing lips. The lip injections can be performed in office, under local anesthesia and are very safe. How do lip injections work? Most lip injections involve the use of a dermal filler.  The dermal fillers best for lip injections are the hyaluronic acid based fillers like Juvederm and Restylane.  The advantage of these fillers is that they are soft and gel like and hypoallergenic.  They  can also be readily dissolved if the results are not optimal.  Usually a topical anesthetic and ice are first applied (sometimes anesthetic injection like lidocaine can also be used).  Once the lips are numb, the lip injections can be started.  The first place usually injected is the vermillion border, the border of the red of the lip and the surrounding skin.  Placing filler here outlines the lips.  Attention then can be turned to the Cupid’s bow and the lip injections can be used to further enhance it’s appearance.   The remainder of the lip injections are then used to refill the volume of the lips.  Filler is placed into a space in the body of the lip to increase their plumpness.  It is critical to always leave the lower lip larger than top, otherwise the ‘duck’ lip appearance can occur. Are lip injections safe? When performed by trained and experienced personnel, lip injections are remarkably safe.   Of course, a needle is being inserted into the lips and bruising, bleeding, swelling and discomfort are possible.  The good thing is that lips heal fast and side effects fade quickly.  To further avoid complications and improve comfort, microcannulas can now be used to do lip injection.  With one or two needlesticks, a microcannula can do the same work of the traditional 8-10 needlesticks. Lip Injections Cost The cost of lip injections depends on the lip filler used.  Most lip injections use at most, one syringe of filler.  Depending on the filler and specials at the time, this can be from $4-500.  So, the lip injections cost is comparable to other skin treatments over its 4-6 month lifespan. Lip Injections Near Me Beleza Medspa offers 5 offices with trained and experienced injectors at each.  We also offer Botox, Hydrafacials and Microneedling to complement your lip injections. When looking for your lip injections near me, Beleza Medspa has you covered. Botox Lip Flip How long do lip injections last? The lips are in constant use (some more than others!) and this does cause dermal fillers to degrade. As a result, you can see results last 4-6 months and if repeated, the results tend to last longer.  We are doing more lip injections with fat transfer. Using your own fat along with its stem cells, promises to give even longer lasting results! Lip Injections Before and After             How much are lip injections in Texas?
