Don’t Let Cellulite Ruin Your Pictures

Fall is slowly approaching and you’re looking back at pictures from all those beach days, lake excursions, pool parties, etc., are you noticing a few shadows and dimpling in the skin that you prefer not be there? You’re not alone – cellulite is an issue that bothers just about everyone. Even Trya Banks and Hillary Rodham Clinton have discussed it!

So we all agree that cellulite is the worst! But what is it, and what can be done about it?

Cellulite is caused from enlarged fat cells, tight connective tissue bands (septae) and a weakened dermal layer. If that wasn’t enough, it also affects the circulatory rate in the skin and when there is low blood flow there is low oxygen and the cells are not given the nutrients they need to stay healthy so this tissue then becomes sick tissue.

Cellulite

Since cellulite is a structural problem, not a fat problem – creams, lotions, pills and even diets cannot effectively treat cellulite.

However, there is a solution. Viora treats the actual symptoms, with CORE (Channeling Optimized RF Energy) technology. CORE provides deep tissue heating to stimulate natural lipolysis, which helps reduce the volume of fat cells. In addition, Reaction’s vacuum helps with lymphatic drainage, reducing edema. Viora’s CORE also encourages fibroblast activity and gives a tightening effect. Heated fibroblasts lead to improved firmness and elasticity of the skin.

Exercise and diet are great for the body, however these do not target the symptom or the root of cellulite. Viora’s solution is FDA cleared for cellulite and treats cellulite effectively without downtime. Viora’s cellulite treatment targets not only the fat cells for body contouring but also addresses the dermal layers so the skin appears smooth and youthful.

So instead of deleting those pics from this summer, take the time now to start planning for next year’s bikini season! Visit www.vioramed.com to locate a Viora practitioner near you!

Operator Spotlight: Mary Cerino from the office of Dr David Vasily

Mary Cerino

Mary Cerino

As a Bethlehem, PA dermatologist and an outstanding Aesthetics professional, Dr David Vasily offers a wide variety of treatments in his practice, Aesthetica Cosmetic & Laser Surgery Center. Working alongside Dr Vasily is his nurse, Mary Cerino. Mary provides treatments specifically on Viora’s Reaction, the V-touch IRB study purposes and will soon be working with Viora’s newest multi-technology system. In this day and age, non-invasive technologies are more popular than ever and it is becoming more and more desirable to be able to provide a solution for all areas of concern, and for all patients’ needs and wants.

Dr Vasily and Mary Cerino have worked with almost all of the devices in the aesthetic industry and have become very fond of Viora’s proprietary technologies. Mary has worked with Reaction for a few years now and says “For patients who want skin rejuvenation with no down time, Viora’s Reaction is a valuable tool. Initial sessions, followed by regular maintenance sessions, result in a nice, continued subtle improvement in skin texture and firmness which can be further improved with regular maintenance sessions. Reaction can also provide an improvement in body contouring in patients who ‘just can’t lose’ that area of bulging with regular exercise and diet. It is a nice addition to our practice allowing us to meet the needs of a variety of patients!”

Dr Vasily is also pleased with the results and comments, “Viora’s Reaction has proven to be a very valued, noninvasive device with varied applications in our cosmetic dermatology practice. Multiple uses include treatment of acne, facial skin rejuvenation and tightening, striae and, especially contouring of body areas such as ‘bat wings’ of arms, ‘love handles’ and baby belly or pooch.  The device has performed flawlessly with minimal service down time and is invaluable in our office.”

Dr David Vasily and Mary have also been working with Viora’s V-touch system for IRB study purposes, which utilizes Viora’s proprietary technology, SVC™. This fractional radiofrequency system is like no other, with minimal to no discomfort and amazing results. Mary has been a witness to these outcomes, saying, “V-touch has proven to be an excellent fractional RF device. The results that we are seeing in skin rejuvenation are truly amazing! In our practice we have treated patients with photodamage, evidenced by actinic bronzing, actinic keratosis, skin laxity and rhytids, and have seen improvement in their skin verified by VISIA photography documentation. Patients who have tried previous treatments with non-ablative fractional lasers and saw “none to minimal improvement”, underwent treatments with V-touch and experienced tangible, visible results. Patients have generally been very pleased with the improvement in their skin!”

The success stories coming from this office is something to be excited about. Dr Vasily says “Viora’s V-touch has proven to be the most successful skin resurfacing/rejuvenation device ever utilized in our practice in terms of the right blend of ablation and thermal tightening. After a series of three treatments, patients show remarkable reduction in skin laxity, as well as significant homogenization of color, texture, tone and pore reduction. It is without a doubt, one of the cornerstone devices of our cosmetic dermatology practice.”

To have developed the “cornerstone device” for our customers in aesthetic practice is certainly the goal for Viora. We’re thrilled that we’ve achieved that for Mary and Dr Vasily, in that we’ve built the time machines and they’re shaping the future!

Wedding season is here – are you prepared?

July and August are two of the most popular months for weddings. Around the world, people are preparing for their special day with all sorts of aesthetic procedures:  manicures, pedicures, facial treatments, and hair removal. However, one thing that should be kept in mind is your most memorable keepsake: wedding photos. And the question is, how do your hands appear in those photos? We know your ring is beautiful & everything you ever dreamed of, but are your hands photo-ready or are they photo-aged? Do they look thin, wrinkled, dull and covered with age spots?

Einat_Hand_B_A

Don’t settle for photo editing; add something to your wedding day “prep list” that will have you more than excited to show off your ring.

Viora’s V-ST and V-IPL treatments are just the thing you need. V-ST can maximize the collagen production and add more warmth and fullness to your hands while V-IPL will remove the unsightly age spots and brighten that overall dull appearance. Treat yourself to one or the other, or combine the two to get the full effects and benefits of each treatment.

Ronen_glesinger_Hand_B_A
The skin on our hands tends to thin as we age, and veins start to show more which can leave people uncomfortable in showing their hands off in fear of looking older than they really are. Viora’s V-ST handpiece non-invasively stimulates collagen in both dermal layers with CORE technology, the most advanced bipolar radio frequency configuration. With the ability to precisely target the dermal layers on thin areas such as the hands, this is truly the most unique option. There is no downtime with this procedure and it can be done bi-weekly, quickly on your lunch break, in between wedding planning.

Viora’s V-IPL handpiece, the latest and greatest IPL solution focuses on the superficial layers of skin while targeting age spots with our proprietary PCR™ technology, while stimulates collagen. PCR™ is designed to treat all ethnicities and all skin types safely and effectively, with little to no downtime. With proven results of brighter, smoother texture of skin, V-IPL is a wonderful option to help you achieve more youthful skin.

Your hands will look as young as you feel and your skin will radiate just like that beautiful diamond. Combine both of these treatments to target deep down in the dermis and brighten the outer layers on the same day.

Viora knows your aesthetic needs, and we take pride in our ability to customize and tailor our treatment options to each patient. To learn more about how Viora technologies can help you enhance your hands’ appearance, visit our website to find a physician offering Viora treatments in your area.

Have Reaction™, will travel!

We’ve been busy here in the US, taking our leading aesthetic solutions on the road!

seattle regionalAt the beginning of June we were in Washington for our Seattle Regional Training. Staff members from accounts all around the area came for the day to get their hands dirty, learn a little and have some fun. We went over clinical protocols and operating information, business & marketing strategies, spent some time doing hands-on treatments, and ended with a toast to welcome the newest systems to the Viora family: the V-Series platform line (V30 & V20). A great time was had by all! If you’re interested in this advanced training, head to vioramed.com to find out when the next regional training will be. It’s an excellent opportunity to refresh yourself on Reaction’s technology, treatment protocols, and tips & tricks to use in the office, all to generate more revenue. Not to mention, it’s a $2,000 value, absolutely free! With breakfast and lunch thrown in, it’s a worthy investment.

Then we packed our bags and spent some time in Sin City for the Vegas Cosmetic Surgery Symposium. Whether people were sinning or not, we wouldn’t know because we were too busy at our booth, speaking with doctors from all over the world! We had live demos at our booth where we displayed Reaction, V-Series with the V-ST & V-IPL handpieces & Pristine. Dr. Jason Emer of Spalding Drive Plastic Surgery in California, spoke about Viora’s CORE technology in his lecture on body contouring & cellulite reduction.VCS image

Doctors & staff members crowded around our booth receiving complimentary treatments, watching them be performed, and talking with our talented sales force about how they can take their business to the next level. The benefits to having Reaction for an additional revenue stream, was made clear to practitioners – patients and physicians love the results!

How Brides can Prepare for their Big Day with Viora Treatments

bride

Your wedding day requires plenty of preparation, from choosing a caterer to the most important task of selecting your gown. Cosmetic treatments may also be part of your pre-wedding schedule, to correct and enhance areas that keep you from feeling less than your best on your special day. At Viora, we offer treatments designed with brides in mind, to address some of those common concerns that may interfere with your natural wedding glow, and guess what? There’s no downtime!

Take Control of Acne

There are few things more stressful than an acne breakout in the midst of your wedding preparations. Viora understands the importance of flaunting clear, beautiful skin underneath your veil and that is why we offer treatments that effectively keep acne breakouts at bay during this important time. Our Viora V-IPL hand piece can be used with either of our platforms to clear acne symptoms. The device features contact cooling and five different filters, which allows our IPL device to treat a wide range of skin types safely and effectively.

Greet Your Day with a Refreshed Look

It’s hard not to let the stress and worry that typically accompanies wedding planning to show up on your face when you finally make it to the big day. Give your skin a boost before you walk down the aisle with Viora’s Infusion treatment. This revolutionary device delivers high quality formulations beneath the skin’s surface without needles, discomfort or downtime. Choose different serum packages, whether you want to clear up an oily complexion, brighten dull and tired skin or turn back the clock on early signs of aging.

As of now, that treatment is only available outside the USA. So for all you red, white and blue babies out there. We recommend V-IPL. Not only will it leave you looking all glowy and soft skinned, it helps pore size, and evens complexions by targeting fine lines and wrinkles, brown AND redness from your skin. Bye bye broken capillaries and sun spots, hello skin that’s as pristine as your veil.

Say Goodbye to Stretch Marks

You may be able to hide stretch marks beneath your wedding gown, but what happens when you head out on your beach honeymoon after the ceremony? Forget worries over unsightly stretch marks with Viora’s ReFit, an innovative treatment that uses our proprietary radiofrequency technology known as CORE™. This non-invasive treatment delivers heat far beneath the skin’s surface to stimulate collagen production and give a smoother, firmer look to your skin. Vacuum therapy is also integrated into the technology to allow for deeper heat penetration and better results overall.

This time of your life is so exciting and full of events you will remember for a lifetime through photographs and other beautiful mementos. Make sure you are ready to shine in front of your family and friends, as well as the cameras, with customized skin treatments designed just for you.

3 Things You Should Know about Viora Reaction™

viora reactionViora Reaction™ brings the next generation of treatments for skin therapy and cellulite to your office. Using Viora’s Proprietary Technology, you can effectively address skin laxity in multiple areas of the body to create a leaner, firmer appearance. Whether you are looking to firm a flabby abdomen, reduce circumference to ready yourself for summer or turn back the clock on your lower face and neck, Viora Reaction™ may be the treatment you are looking for.

Body Treatment Options

Viora Reaction™ is an exceedingly diverse device, treating a multitude of body areas:

  • Eyes and forehead
  • Lower face
  • Neck and jawline
  • Arms
  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Hips and thighs
  • Knees
  • Hands and fingers

You can choose to have a single area addressed or multiple areas treated at one time. Because the procedure is non-invasive with no downtime, you don’t have to worry about anesthesia or a recovery period if you decide to undergo multiple treatments in a single session. In addition to its skin tightening benefits in the treatment areas listed above, Viora Reaction™ is also effective in reducing the appearance of cellulite around the buttocks, thighs and abdomen.

No Discomfort or Downtime

Because Viora Reaction™ is non-invasive; there is no incision, anesthesia or recovery period. The handheld device used to deliver radiofrequency energy never penetrates the surface of the skin. However, the RF energy does get deep into the layers of the dermis, working in the underlying skin structure to provide support and stimulate collagen production. The procedure is completely painless – some even describe it as relaxing – and you can return to regular activities as soon as your procedure is over.

Technology at Work

Viora Reaction™ utilizes bipolar radiofrequency energy, which effectively controls the depth of the treatment. This means you get the RF energy you need, right where you need it, without worry of damaging surrounding skin and tissue. The RF energy stimulates the body’s own collagen production, which provides support to the underlying skin structure and gives skin a supple, more youthful appearance. Collagen production also continues long after a Viora Reaction™ treatment, ensuring you enjoy long-lasting cosmetic results.

The RF technology used in the Viora Reaction™ is also combined with vacuum therapy, which is particularly beneficial in treating cellulite. As the RF energy heats the deep tissue to stimulate lipolysis or fat reduction, vacuum therapy encourages lymphatic drainage to enhance the overall results of the procedure. You will see skin that is smoother and firmer, without the telltale dimpling of cellulite.

Viora Reaction™ offers numerous benefits in skin therapy and cellulite reduction not seen with other devices today. To learn more about Viora Reaction™, find a physician in your area at http://www.vioramed.com/int/patients/.
