VelaShape Skin Tightening Treatments

Sometimes, due to age, hereditary factors weight gain and loss or pregnancy, areas of stubborn fat and cellulite can form throughout the body. Even with a great diet and regular exercise, these areas of fat may stick around, causing frustration. While cellulite and dimply skin are perfectly normal and nothing to be ashamed of, there are ways to help remove them, leaving your skin smooth and contoured. For those who are nervous and unwilling to go under the knife with an invasive procedure like liposuction, VelaShape can provide a very effective, noninvasive way to remove fat, contour the body and tighten the skin. The result is a smooth, refined and youthful look. Continuing to receive VelaShape treatments over an extended period of time can create longer lasting, more drastic results.

As part of its new MedSpa program, Mia Aesthetics currently offers VelaShape to patients with pricing based on the size of the area they would like to have treated. For a small area, patients can pay $50 for one treatment or a reduced rate of $125 for a package of three treatments. A medium area costs $150 for one treatment or a reduced rate of $400 for a package of three treatments. And a large area costs $225 for one treatment or a reduced rate of $570 for a package of three treatments.

The benefits of VelaShape are that is a convenient outpatient procedure, it is virtually painless, involving no needles, incisions or anesthesia, it is quick and typically takes no more than 20 minutes, and above all else, it is a proven and effective way to reduce fat and cellulite.

What Is VelaShape & How Does it Tighten Skin?

VelaShape is an FDA-approved medical device that uses a combination of suction, massage, radio frequency energy, and infrared light to shape and smooth the body. Rather than completely eliminating fat cells, VelaShape is able to shrink them. Once the device is placed against the skin, it uses vacuum technology to suction against the skin and massage rollers to knead the treatment area. As the device is being rolled against the skin, radio-frequency energy and infrared light penetrate the fat cells and temporarily puncture their membranes, causing the fat cells to release fatty acids, glycerol and water into the body and then shrink. 

The fat-shrinking effect of the treatments allows patients to lose inches on areas like the thighs, abdomen, and buttocks, and even the delicate skin on the neck and face. VelaShape’s unique mechanism produces a skin tightening effect, which can work wonders on areas with stretched out skin or skin affected by age. Along with skin tightening, over time, VelaShape can produce body shaping and contouring effects on the body by smoothing out areas of stubborn fat. Many patients use VelaShape for stubborn muffin tops or double chins to remove any unsightly lumps and bumps. With virtually no downtime or pain, VelaShape can transform your skin and give you a body you love.

Which Areas Can Be Treated with VelaShape?

VelaShape’s skin tightening impact can be used on various areas of the body. At Mia Aesthetics, we define treatment areas by their size: small, medium or large. Small areas include the face, neck and under the chin. For patients who are older and have experienced skin dropping and sagging on the face, jowl and neck, VelaShape can produce wonderful neck tightening and face tightening effects. Medium treatment areas include the abdomen, buttocks, arms, bra line and knees. And large treatment areas include the full abdomen, the front of the abdomen and the flanks, and full legs. These areas are likely the most popular areas to use VelaShape on, as they are where most patients see an accumulation of excess fat, bumpy skin and cellulite.

Cellulite Removal/Reduction Treatments With Velashape

Because the technology behind VelaShape boosts collagen production to smooth out skin, it is FDA-cleared to temporarily reduce the appearance of bumpy cellulite. As collagen production ramps up, skin cell turnover increases, allowing the body to shed dead skin cells and replace them with younger skin cells. The combination of fat cells shrinking and skin smoothing out greatly reduces the overall appearance of cellulite over time. 

It is important to remember that no matter what area you choose to treat with VelaShape, you will likely have to keep coming in for touch ups to see more dramatic results and to extend them. Surgeons and aestheticians recommend VelaShape procedures be done weekly for four to six weeks, with touch ups suggested every few months for maximum effects. As mentioned, VelaShape only shrinks fat cells and does not destroy them. The incorporation of VelaShape for fat and cellulite removal can be maintained with regular maintenance treatments and by following a healthy diet and exercise regimen.
