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?
Almost every part of the body can be treated by laser hair removal. For women, some of the most popular treatment areas are the armpit, bikini line, full Brazilian bikini area, upper lip and legs. Mia Aesthetics splits up treatment areas up by size: small, medium, large and extra-large. Areas where the skin is thin or where there are more nerve endings will likely be more painful than other areas. For example, the armpit, bikini line and Brazilian area tend to be extra sensitive and can be treated with a numbing cream beforehand for added comfort. The following is a list of areas that can be treated according to size:
Abdomen, Flanks, Thighs, Buttock, Arms
Whatever your unique needs are, laser hair removal can offer you with a refined aesthetic and a confidence boost. We also offer packages for full body hair removal at a reduced rate!
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 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.
