VelaShape III is an advanced medical spa procedure that can improve body contours, reduce the appearance of cellulite, and enhance skin tone and texture.
The treatment is completely non-surgical, which makes it more affordable in comparison to various other invasive and non-invasive med spa procedures for body sculpting.
At the time of the pre-treatment consultation, the provider will explain various aspects of the VelaShape III med spa procedure to the patient, including its estimated costs. The patient should unhesitatingly ask questions about the costs of the procedure and financing options.
Dr. Q Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Suzanne Quardt (Dr. Q) provides skin tightening solutions to patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and surrounding locations.
Cost Comparison with Surgery
For skin tightening and body contouring, body lift plastic surgery is an established procedure. But the costs of the surgery could deter many patients. As it is an elective procedure, the patient will not likely receive insurance coverage for it.
For this reason, patients should cautiously compare the costs of a skin tightening and cellulite reduction cosmetic surgery with a non-surgical medical spa procedure such as VelaShape III.
Surgery usually involves costs pertaining to the surgical venue, anesthesia, surgeon’s charges, and post-operative expenses such as prescription drugs, medical tests, surgical garments, and appointments at the surgeon’s office.
A non-surgical med spa procedure such as VelaShape III does not typically involve such costs and can be undertaken comfortably without the necessity for an anesthetic.
In addition, VelaShape III is an in-office treatment. This avoids the costs associated with a surgical facility. It involves almost no recovery expenses, discomfort, or downtime.
VelaShape III costs can vary between patients and practices. The average cost of living differs between two areas. Therefore, the location of the practice is an important factor in determining the cost of VelaShape III treatment.
Higher real estate and overhead costs affect the costs of various goods and services in the region, including the cost of cosmetic treatments such as VelaShape III.
Other factors such as the quality standards, equipment, and expertise of the staff at the medical spa will also affect the total costs of the procedure. It is important to choose a practice that uses the latest technologies and has well-trained staff.
In this decision, other considerations should be secondary. Procedures such as VelaShape III offer patients safe and predictable outcomes with proper care and customization of the treatments.
Some patients require treatment only in specific areas of the body such as the upper torso, thighs, buttocks, or abdomen while others may need treatment in multiple areas.
The treatment sessions usually range between one and three depending on the extent of correction necessary. This leads to differences in the cost of treatment between two patients.
Insurance and Financing
In most cases, VelaShape III is not medically necessary and is an elective procedure. Therefore, patients will likely not receive insurance coverage for this procedure. But patients may consider the various financing options to pay for the treatment in convenient monthly installments.
Medical care finance companies offer quick loan approvals at low rates of interest and flexible payment terms for treatments such as VelaShape III.
