How Much Does VelaShape Skin Rejuvenation Cost?

post Post  

VelaShape, which sometimes is referred to as skin rejuvenation, is an FDA-approved treatment for smoothing skin and reducing cellulite on the body.

Typical costs:

  • VelaShape typically costs $200 to $600 per treatment per body area (such as thighs, trunk, or buttocks) with four to six weekly treatments required initially, or a total of $800 to $2400; some treatment centers offer a discount of several hundred dollars on a package. For example, Tranquility Med Spa & Salon[1] in Salt lake City, Utah, charges $300 per treatment per body area and $1,530 for a package of six treatments. Bradford Aesthetics in Pennsylvania, charges by body area and length of treatment; the center charges $400 to $600 for a single treatment and $250 for each additional body area, but charges either $2,000 or $2,700 or $3,600 for a package of six treatments, depending on whether the treatments last one, one and a half or two hours each. And The Skin Care Clinic in California charges $150 per session for one body part, $225 for two and $325 for three; packages of 10 treatments cost $1,195 for one body part, $1,795 for two and $2,495 for three.
  • VelaShape is considered a cosmetic procedure, so it typically is not covered by health insurance.

What should be included:
  • In VelaShape treatments, a doctor or trained technician uses a machine, which employs suction, radiofrequency and infrared light energy, to massage the body part being treated. During treatment, which does not require anesthesia and lasts between 40 minutes and two hours, the patient feels a massaging or sucking sensation or, in some cases, mild discomfort or pain.
Additional costs:
  • To keep up results, maintenance treatments are required once a month; many centers offer a discount on maintenance treatments; $100 to $150 per session is typical.
Discounts:
  • VelaShape.com[2] offers a downloadable $200 coupon.
  • Many treatment centers offer discounts for getting multiple body parts treated.
  • Some treatment centers, such as ASAVA Medi Spa & Wellness Center[3] in California, offer online specials, like a package of five treatments for half off the regular price.
Shopping for velashape skin rejuvenation:
  • Good candidates for VelaShape are healthy patients close to ideal body weight who want to reduce cellulite or reduce the circumference of arms, stomach, hips, thighs or buttocks.
  • Tip: Consult with a doctor who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery who can assess your situation and supervise the procedure, even if it is done by a trained technician. Both the American Society of Plastic Surgeons[4] and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery[5] offer referral services. Also, VelaShape.com[6] provides a clinic locator.
  • Ask to see before-and-after photographs of previous patients and talk with the doctor ahead of time to set realistic goals. VelaShape gets mixed reviews from patients on RealSelf.com[7] .
  • Risks of VelaShape are considered minimal and include bruising, minor skin wounds, scarring and dissatisfaction with results.
