Operator Spotlight: Valley Surgical Care & Aesthetics

Valley Surgical logoLisa Case uses words like “dramatic” and “consistent” when talking about the results she receives from Viora technologies.

We have a lot of happy patients, with great testimonials and great results,” said Lisa, a Viora operator and office manager at Valley Surgical Care & Aesthetics in Grand Junction, Colorado. “It’s working out really well.”

Discovering the benefits of Viora products was not accidental for Valley Surgical Care & Aesthetics. Dr. Brad Case, Lisa’s husband and the practice’s head surgeon and MD of over 25 years, saw the scientific evidence backing the benefits of Viora products in a study out of John Hopkins University. And while he did try out other technologies when deciding what to use, Lisa says it was clear from the beginning Viora would be the primary technology for aesthetic procedures at Valley Surgical Care & Aesthetics.

And it has been since April 2014. Valley now uses Reaction for skin tightening and contouring, Trios for hair removal, skin rejuvenation and acne clearance, and Pristine for everything from uneven skin tone to skin texture extraction and resurfacing. These technologies mesh perfectly with the philosophy at Valley Surgical Care & Aesthetics in a number of different ways.

For one, it fits in with Valley’s personalized care. Patients are treated like family at Valley Surgical Care & Aesthetics and Viora technologies enable the practice to improve patient’s lives with “no downtime and tremendous results,” Lisa said. Also, Viora products perfectly align with the Cases’s philosophy of “greatest amount of good with the least amount of pain.”

“It’s a non-invasive approach, but with results,” said Lisa, who’s been in medicine for 23 years. “We’re a results-based practice as well. And Dr. Case (Brad) does minimally invasive surgeries, so it goes along with what we’re doing.”

It’s clear, then: Viora and Valley Surgical Care & Aesthetics are a great match. And Valley Surgical Care & Aesthetics’ patients are benefiting. As one of their clients says:

“I couldn’t be happier with the results I’ve experienced at Valley Surgical Care & Aesthetics.   My tummy area has always been a challenge, despite great effort at the gym.  Then after baby, I lost hope until I found Valley.  Body contouring and skin tightening treatments have left my tummy much flatter and tighter.   I recommend it!”

Operator Spotlight – Emily Dickman of Kucumber Skin Lounge

Reaction multi-RF bi-polar device

When Kucumber Skin Lounge received its first Viora device in 2012 (Reaction), Emily Dickman was skeptical of its promise of drastic results in a non-invasive manner. The Kucumber trainer and lead aesthetician’s skepticism didn’t last long.

 

“When I started seeing the results my clients and I personally were having, my skepticism turned into amazement,” said Dickman, who used Reaction to get a full-face skin tightening for a more youthful, tighter appearance.

 

BA336-KucumberNow Kucumber uses Reaction for contour, cellulite and skin tightening treatments at all three of its locations (Seattle, Bellingham and Bellevue), which Dickman says allows them better site-specific targeting of cellulite/fat loss and skin tightening. In fact, Reaction is “by far the most comfortable and most effective method” Dickman says she’s seen in the 11+ years she’s been an aesthetician.

V30 Multi-technology Platform from VioraKucumber also recently started using Viora’s multi-technology platform V-30 for hair removal, which patients say is very comfortable and technicians say is very user-friendly, since it makes switching to another treatment possible without changing devices.

In other words, Kucumber Skin Lounge has become a Viora-holic.

“It truly does help change an individual’s life and I’m proud to be a part of that process with Viora,” Dickman said.

Labial Laxity and the Use of CORE™

Revive flower shutterstock_57125812The power of Viora‘s CORE™ technology is its effectiveness – and there’s great satisfaction in seeing physicians take advantage of this revolutionary multi-RF technology and apply it to their own needs.

Labiaplasty, a surgical procedure for reshaping labial tissue is on the rise, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) with an increase of 44% procedures performed in 2013, compared to 2012. With an increased demand of non-invasive techniques for aesthetic treatments, practitioners using CORE™ can now also offer a solution for labial laxity to their patients.

Dr. Stephen A. Foley, M.D., Comprehensive Women’s Care of Colorado Springs, CO found this new solution to be a welcome addition to his array of treatments. “Here at the Comprehensive Women’s Care of Colorado Springs, CO, our patients are looking to address lax vulval tissue. With Viora’s CORE™ technology we’re able to offer an excellent alternative to surgical procedures. The procedure is effective, has no downtime and is painless, performed without anesthesia. Our patients enthusiastically embrace the treatments.”

Whether the cause is childbirth, age, trauma, genetics or excessive weight loss, the tissue in the vulval area can be loose and saggy. This loss of strength and tone can lead to a variety of issues for women, including emotional and physical discomfort.

With Viora’s CORE™ technology, physicians can offer a non-surgical option for women not inclined to undergo surgery, whether due to fear, monetary concerns or concern about the resulting downtime.

Using Viora’s proprietary CORE™ technology, with multi- RF energy delivered via three different frequencies: 0.8MHz, 1.7MHz and 2.45MHz as well as a multi-channel mode that combines all three frequencies together physicians can deliver accurate levels of energy. This ensures the collagen is remodeled which restores the skin’s elasticity and thickens the dermis, with collagen production continuing for up to five weeks following each procedure. This noticeably tightens the tissue.

Now there is a surgical alternative to labial laxity, making for a painless procedure, with no downtime, and no anesthesia necessary. For women looking for a completely non-invasive, effective treatment, Viora’s CORE™ is the solution!

The Down Low on Downtime

Reaction multi-RF bi-polar device

Reaction multi-RF bi-polar device

When deciding whether or not to undergo a voluntary medical procedure, downtime is generally high on the list of a potential patient’s concerns. Today, there are many non-invasive aesthetic procedures which require no downtime at all. When a client undergoes a procedure such as body contouring with ReactionTM or microdermabrasion with PristineTM, they are able to return to their routine immediately after as there are no adverse, external effects.

With treatments that are even somewhat invasive there tends to be two kinds of downtime, doctor-mandated downtime and social downtime. When a doctor tells a patient to stay inside after an invasive procedure like a CO2 laser peel it is for medical reasons. While your appearance may leave what to desire, this is not the physician’s concern. Exposure to the sun and the elements could cause infection, burns and a prolonged healing process. Whether you like it or not you are stuck missing work, your friend’s party or any other activities planned.V-touch RF Fractional Device by Viora

Social downtime is downtime a patient elects to undergo him or herself. After a minimally invasive procedure such as skin resurfacing with the V-touchTM, the client may return to their normal routine immediately after. The procedure has somewhat of a visible effect on the client’s appearance but it is safe to cover the treatment area with makeup after 24 hours. If a slightly red visage doesn’t bother you though, it is perfectly safe to return to your routine immediately after the procedure as long as you remember to cover up when going into the sun.

It is important to keep in mind that, generally speaking, when a doctor discusses the downtime after a procedure he or she is referring only to the mandatory downtime. The one to two weeks you must remain inside after a laser peel does not include the social downtime you may elect to take upon yourself because of any remaining swelling or redness.

So whatever type of procedure you choose to undergo make sure you have a proper understanding of what your physician means when saying “downtime” and what that will ultimately mean to your daily routine.
