Viora Reaction™ for Skin Tightening and Cellulite Reduction
If you have loose, sagging skin or dimpling from cellulite, the Viora Reaction™ skin tightening technique may be able to help improve your skin’s appearance. Using selective radiofrequency (RF) technology, Dr. Mark Richards can painlessly target various depths in as well as under the skin, allowing the procedure to be customized to your individual needs. Treatment with the Viora Reaction™ offers a non-surgical way of stimulating the skin’s natural collagen and giving it a smoother, more attractive appearance.
Benefits of Reaction™
Viora Reaction™ provides an alternative to surgical solutions for body contouring and skin tightening. Reaction™ also offers other unique benefits, including:
- Results often begin to be seen immediately after treatment
- Treatment sessions typically take 20-30 minutes, depending on the targeted area
- Most patients achieve desired results after 6-8 sessions
- Able to treat the face and the body – common treatment areas include thighs, arms, abdomen, buttocks, neck, chin, eyes, and full face
- Reaction™ is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure
- No recovery time needed for most patients
- Can be combined with other procedures, such as liposuction, to improve results after surgery.
How does Viora Reaction™ work?
With varying frequency, energy, and vacuum options, Dr. Richards can target different depths in and beneath the skin – the epidermis, dermis, hypodermis and subcutaneous fat. The Viora Reaction™ also has a multi-channel mode, which can allow Dr. Richards to treat multiple depths at once. The RF energy is used to selectively heat the targeted areas, leading to fat reduction, skin tightening, and increased collagen production. The Viora Reaction™ utilizes vacuum therapy for improved body treatment options and depths. This unique advantage enables the RF energy to penetrate deeper below the skin’s surface, and can also help to increase blood flow, reduce swelling, and stimulate metabolism.
When treating delicate facial skin, Dr. Richards can adjust the settings on the Reaction™ to target the appropriate depths for each specific area of the face. For body treatments in areas such as the thighs, buttocks, or abdominal region, Dr. Richards often uses the multi-channel mode. By targeting all three depths at once, he can painlessly heat the subcutaneous tissue, stimulating lipolysis (fat cell reduction) while helping to rebuild collagen. As the collagen regrows, the skin should begin to show a smoother, firmer texture.
For patients who are experiencing loose skin as a result of weight loss from traditional diet and exercise, childbirth, or bariatric surgery, the ReFit technique – powered by Reaction™ – can help improve the skin’s elasticity by safely heating the dermal layers. The heat causes the underlying network of collagen and elastin fibers to shrink, which can ultimately tightens lax, sagging skin. However, the Reaction™ 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.
