Non-Surgical Body Contouring and Skin Tightening with Reaction™

In our last post, our plastic surgeon, Dr. Mark Richards, explained how Viora Reaction™ can be used to reduce the appearance of cellulite. In the final installment of our two-part blog series, Dr. Richards explains how Reaction™ can also benefit patients with loose, excess skin.

After weight loss, having a baby, or simply aging, many patients tend to notice they have more loose, hanging skin then they are comfortable displaying. Body sculpting procedures such as a tummy tuck or arm lift can often help resolve these issues, but many patients are seeking a non-surgical option with little to no downtime. Designed to help improve skin’s elasticity, ReFit powered by Reaction™ can help to gradually tighten skin over time in a series of brief treatments. Patients do not require recovery time after treatment, and return to their daily activities immediately.

Using radiofrequency (RF) energy, I can target specific areas of the face or body, including:


  • Neck
  • Chin
  • Eyes
  • Full Face
  • Inner and Outer Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Abdomen

I am able to adjust the energy and frequency channels on the Viora Reaction™ device according to the specific area of the face or body being targeted. As the tissue is heated, the underlying network of collagen and elastin fibers begin to shrink and tighten for a firmer appearance.

If you would like to learn more about non-surgical body contouring and skin tightening, please contact my office today. While the Reaction™ is quite effective, it may not be the best solution in all cases, so it is important to have a consultation prior to treatment to see if this procedure is the most suitable option.

My staff will be happy to answer your questions, or assist you in scheduling a consultation with me. I look forward to meeting with you soon to help you determine if Viora Reaction™ is right for you.
