What is Viora?

There are many non-surgical options in skin tightening today, and we are excited to offer the Viora Reaction at Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics. This revolutionary device takes skin tightening, body contouring and cellulite reduction to a whole new level. Using proprietary technology, the Viora Reaction offers superb results in fast treatments that can be completed during your lunchbreak. If you are looking for skin tightening, we have the facts about Viora that you need to know.

Effective Skin Tightening
Viora uses a combination of bi-polar RF energy and vacuum therapy to cause underlying tissue to contract almost right away. At the same time, this technology stimulates the body’s own collagen production, creating additional support in the underlying skin structure and producing natural, long-lasting results. Multiple frequencies allow us to target nearly any skin type while smoothing, firming and rejuvenating the skin of the face and body.

The benefits of Viora include:

• Ability to tighten skin without anesthesia or incisions
• Treatment sessions are quick and relatively painless
• Ability to work in the deep layers of the dermis for enhanced results
• Can work on all skin types and on nearly any area of the body
• No downtime required after a Viora treatment session
• Combination technology produces best possible results without surgery
• Collagen production provides natural, long-lasting results
• Can also be used to minimize the appearance of fat and cellulite

About Collagen
The ability to stimulate collagen production is just one of the benefits Viora Reaction offers. Collagen is a substance found in the underlying skin structure that gives skin its smooth, supple appearance. Over time, our bodies produce less collagen, leading to sagging skin and the appearance of facial creases. Collagen can be further diminished by sun exposure, environmental pollution and cigarette smoke.

By restoring collagen levels to the underlying skin structure, we can also effectively restore your youthful look and vitality. The process takes advantage of your body’s natural function, ensuring you enjoy natural results that do not belie your cosmetic treatment.

Candidates for Viora
Viora Reaction can be used on nearly any patient seeking tighter, smoother skin. The procedure works best on patients with mild to moderate skin laxity, usually between the ages of 30 and 65. Those with more pronounced signs of aging may require surgical treatments to get the results they are looking for. Patients that are pregnant, have an autoimmune disease or have a pacemaker will need to discuss their situations individually with Dr. Birchall to see if they are good candidates.

Most patients will require more than one treatment session with Viora Reaction to achieve their full desired results. Our team will discuss a potential schedule with you at your first consultation, so you have a good idea of what to expect. Patients that adhere to their treatment schedule will see the best possible results from their procedure.

Viora Reaction can be used alone to produce a more youthful look. It can also be combined with other procedures – both surgical and non-surgical – to enhance the results of those treatments. Viora is especially useful when combined with liposuction to produce a smoother, firmer result to the treated area.

Treatment Areas
Viora Reaction can be used on many different areas of the face, including:

• Forehead and brow area
• Cheeks and mid-face
• Jawline and jowls
• Skin around the eyes

In addition, Viora can be used on these areas of the body, for additional skin tightening and body contouring:

• Neck and décolleté
• Upper arms
• Inner and outer thighs
• Knees
• Back and abdomen
• Hips and buttocks

In addition to tightening the skin, Viora Reaction can reduce body circumference in some treatment areas. The procedure also effectively reduces the dimpled appearance of cellulite by smoothing the outer dermis and redistributing fat in the underlying tissue.

About the Procedure
A treatment session using Viora Reaction takes anywhere from 30-60 minutes to complete. The procedure does not involve any type of anesthesia, shortening treatment time and reducing your risk factors. Glycerin oil may be applied to the treatment area, so the handheld applicator glides more smoothly across the skin’s surface. During the procedure, patients will experience brief pulses of heat followed by a gentle cooling sensation. Most patients find the procedure to be relatively comfortable.

Body treatments combine the RF pulses with vacuum energy to allow the RF energy to work into deeper layers. The vacuum technology also helps to move fatty acids and triglycerides out of the fat cells in the treatment area, reducing their size for effective body contouring results. Vacuum manipulation also increases blood flow to the area, for a healthy, rejuvenated appearance. Patients receiving this treatment often find the experience to be comfortable and even relaxing, like a warm massage.

After the procedure, patients are generally able to return to their regular activities right away. The skin in the treatment area may be somewhat red and slightly bruised and swollen after the procedure, but these side effects subside within a few hours to a few days after the procedure in most cases.

Seeing Results
Patients that undergo Viora treatments may find some of the results are nearly immediate. However, full results will appear over time as your body generates new collagen production and skin becomes firmer and smoother. Most patients will require 4-8 treatment sessions to achieve full results. Once those results are apparent, maintenance treatments once or twice a year will help you keep your stellar results over the long term.

Viora is a revolutionary method of skin tightening that is not yet widely available.
