    Answers to Frequently Asked Questions About VelaShape

    Last updated 2 days 14 hours ago

    Cosmetic medicine is making it continually easier for patients to enjoy the smooth, taut, and beautiful skin they deserve. Though cellulite has been a persistent problem for many people over the years, technological advances are providing safe and effective solutions for this condition. In particular, VelaShape can now give treatment recipients fast and noticeable results to their cellulite concerns.

    What Does VelaShape Do?
    VelaShape treats cellulite where it starts: in the deep layer of skin that creams and lotions cannot reach. This innovative and noninvasive procedure manipulates the tissues that promote cellulite formation. With manual massage, suction, and heat, this treatment can shrink and smooth sections of cellulite. VelaShape is an effective treatment technique for the removal of cellulite on virtually any part of the body, including the upper legs, stomach, and hips.

    Is VelaShape Painful?
    VelaShape recipients can enjoy the benefits of their treatment even before they notice the reduced appearance of cellulite. Far from being a painful procedure, VelaShape can massage the body and ease the mind during treatment. As many people who have already undergone this procedure can attest, VelaShape often feels like a firm massage treatment.

    How Fast Can VelaShape Produce Results?
    The results that VelaShape can offer depend on several factors. First, the size of the treatment area can affect how quickly that a VelaShape recipient will notice smoother and tighter skin. Second, the number and frequency of treatment sessions can also impact the procedure’s outcome. Many VelaShape practitioners recommend that recipients undergo this procedure approximately once a week for optimal results. Should VelaShape patients continue their treatment sessions and adhere to healthy lifestyle habits, they can often see enhanced skin texture and appearance in three to four weeks.

    You can have the beautifully smooth skin you want. Aurora Medical Spa offer VelaShape treatment for residents of St. Louis, Des Peres, Kirkwood, and Ballwin. If you would like to get more information about this procedure, or to set up an initial consultation, call us today at (314) 315-4574.

    Last updated 3 days ago

    Did you know that 61% of human resources managers believe that having a visible tattoo can hurt a job applicant’s chances of employment? Though tattoos have become more mainstream in recent years, they are still considered unprofessional and undesirable in many different industries. Some people want to have their tattoos removed for career-related reasons, while others simply don’t want a reminder of the past on their bodies for the rest of their lives. Laser tattoo removal uses light energy to break up the pigments in tattoo ink, which leads to the fading and eventual disappearance of the tattoo. Take a look at this infographic from Aurora Medical Spa, your St. Louis home for Botox, laser hair removal, and laser tattoo removal, to understand more about what to expect from the tattoo removal process. Don’t be embarrassed by your tattoo anymore—say goodbye to it forever. Please share with your inked friends and family.

    Finding the Right Cleanser for Your Skin

    Last updated 4 days ago

    Some people suffer from oily foreheads and noses. Some individuals have dry patches on their cheeks and chins. Still others have combination skin with oily spots and dry areas. For every type of skin, there’s a facial cleanser for it. Yet finding the right cleanser for you can be a challenging task when scanning rows upon rows of products at your local store. The following tips can help you narrow your search and select the cleanser that best suits your skincare needs.

    Figure Out Your Problem Areas
    Before you know what kind of cleanser you need, it’s important to know what kind of skin you have. So before making any purchase, evaluate your skin. For instance, does it normally feel tight and dry? Do you notice shiny areas by midday? Are you noticing fine lines or adult acne? The right cleanser can alleviate each of these problems. When you figure out your most pressing skin concerns, you can search for the products that address them.

    Determine Your Needs
    The right cleanser will not only correct problem skin, but also enhance its natural luster. Many products come with beautifying ingredients that will exfoliate skin or even its tone. If you want your skin to look its best, determine what you want your cleanser to do for it. In some cases, you may need more than one product to get the results you want.

    Talk to a Skincare Expert
    Browsing hundreds of products available on store shelves can be an overwhelming experience. In some circumstances, individuals may decide on a product only because they are tired of looking through all their options. So after completing your own skincare research, seek the assistance of a professional. Only a skincare expert can help you navigate through your many choices and guide you to the products that best serve your needs.

    Are you looking for a cleanser that can combat your dry, oily, or irritated skin? Aurora Medical Spa carries only the most reputable products for our St. Louis customers. Call us today at (314) 315-4574 to discuss your cleanser needs with one of our skincare specialists. 

    Common Areas to Treat With BOTOX® Cosmetic

    Last updated 8 days ago

    BOTOX® Cosmetic has been a highly popular cosmetic medicine treatment option for many years for good reason. The minimally invasive procedure that introduces BOTOX® Cosmetic into the skin is fast, comfortable, and long lasting. In many cases, patients can enjoy their newly smooth skin for months before needing follow-up treatment. Cumulative treatments can also gradually reduce the severity of fine lines and wrinkles in the following areas:

    Around the Eyes
    Men and women alike often notice crow’s feet lining the edges of their eyes by the time they reach their thirties. Though small, these lines can greatly impact a person’s appearance, causing them to look older and fatigued. BOTOX® Cosmetic can ease the look of fine lines around the eyes, allowing recipients to enjoy the refreshed and youthful appearance they want.

    On the Forehead
    Given the thinness of the skin on the forehead, this region of the face is typically the first to show the signs of aging. Sun exposure and facial movement can hasten the appearance of wrinkles on the forehead as well. However, BOTOX® Cosmetic can lessen the severity of the lines that form across this part of the face. By relaxing the muscles that contribute to the look of wrinkles on the forehead, BOTOX® Cosmetic can smooth and improve the skin.

    Around the Mouth
    Though deep facial folds may require extensive cosmetic treatment, BOTOX® Cosmetic can effectively address the small lines that often encircle the edges of the mouth. Just as crow’s feet can make the eyes look aged, small mouth lines can cause this part of the face to appear older and dryer. BOTOX® Cosmetic can ease the small wrinkles that sometimes form around the mouth and help recipients look younger and more vibrant.

    Would you like to learn more about how BOTOX® Cosmetic can enhance your appearance? Then call Aurora Medical Spa in Des Peres at (314) 315-4574. We would be happy to schedule a consultation at our cosmetic medicine office and discuss the anti-aging treatments that best suit your needs. 

    Make Diamonds Your Skin's Best Friend!

    Last updated 10 days ago

    Manual exfoliation is a key component in keeping your skin looking its youngest and healthiest. In many cases, though, over-the-counter products fail to adequately remove the dry, dead skin cells that contribute to the look of aging skin. In contrast, diamond medical microdermabrasion offers extensive skin rejuvenation benefits that can improve the appearance and health of your skin.

    Dead skin cells can make your skin look dry, dull, and old. Diamond medical microdermabrasion safely and comfortably removes this layer of skin to reveal a fresher and more youthful countenance underneath. This procedure can also help you enjoy a more even complexion, as the microdermabrasion professional administering it can make sure that each section of your skin receives the attention it deserves. With only a minimal amount of recovery time, you can experience glowing skin that highlights your overall health and wellbeing.

    See for yourself why so many people have turned to Aurora Medical Spa for their cosmetic needs. Call us today at (314) 315-4574 to schedule an appointment for our diamond medical microdermabrasion. You can also visit our website to view our complete list of services for the greater St. Louis region.
