Amazing results with V-IPL for Hair Removal & Folliculitis!

Folliculitis is the infection and inflammation of hair follicles, one of the most common side effects of hair shaving. It’s a skin condition in which hair follicles become inflamed. It’s usually caused by a bacterial or fungal infection. At first it may look like small red bumps or white-headed pimples around hair follicles — the tiny pockets from which each hair grows. The infection can spread and turn into non-healing, crusty sores.

The condition isn’t life-threatening, but it can be itchy, sore and embarrassing. Severe infections can cause permanent hair loss and scarring. Certain types of folliculitis are known as hot tub rash, razor bumps and barber’s itch.

Unfortunately, there are not very many effective treatments for hair folliculitis, except topical antibiotics which have temporary effect until new folliculitis occur.

Viora has the perfect solution for the problem!

With Viora’s V-IPL you can treat both hair removal, and hair Folliculitis!

Since the light-based treatment destroys the hair follicles, the treatment is actually preventing and treating the infection by destroying the “host environment” for the bacteria or fungi. In addition, the light therapy (especially the spectrum of red-infrared” light) has a positive effect on inflammation with a “coming” outcome. The treatment is performed according to the “classic” hair removal protocol, with 4-10 weeks intervals according to treated anatomic area with Viora’s V-IPL handpiece, available on V20 and V30 platforms. Together, with outstanding contact cooling and Viora’s Proprietary Technology, PCR™, the treatment is fit exactly to the patient’s skin type and most importantly, the hair’s characteristics, such as color, thickness and depth.

Would you love a more full and voluptuous pout?

Full lips with an accentuated border have often been associated with youth and beauty. Since ancient times, tribal peoples worldwide have introduced various materials into and through the upper and lower lips of all genders to enhance beauty. The perceived ideal size of lips has varied over time and in different cultures. For the last 100 years surgeons have attempted to use various substances to achieve the desired result. From paraffin in the 1900s to liquid silicone in the 1960s, to bovine collagen in the 1980s (which does not last very long and requires an allergy test). Hyaluronic acid is a much safer substance that has become very popular in the last 10 years. We have also seen many trends around the world to enhance the lips including suction devices. These devices have an embedded extreme lip-shaping mouthpiece which is designed specifically to enlarge, shape, and contour the lips properly. It produces a plumping effect that can last for a few hours. More women seeking a plump pout are going under the knife for silicone lip implants. Unlike injectable fillers, which last only a few months, the implants are permanent unless removed. These patients have to come in every six months for a checkup. As you probably know, there are risks associated with lip implants including lip asymmetry, lumps, and irregularities in the lips, infection, injection into a blood vessel, causing tissue loss and ulceration, scarring, or stiffening of the lip.

There’s are a variety of methods to improve lip fullness, shape, and volume without permanent or harmful solutions.

Viora’s RF technology presents: The perfect solution for lips rejuvenation!

With Viora’s revolutionary CORE technology, noninvasive RF treatments are designed to transform your skin. CORE gets to the heart of treating your skin by gently heating your skin’s underlying network of collagen and elastin fibers. The RF builds heat to stimulate collagen overtime for a long-lasting result but will also give you an immediate plump because RF is attracted to the hyaluronic acid in our lips. Additionally, the RF will help to keep the “ski slope appearance” borders of the lips strong, so that they do not get a flattened look. This treatment will also keep any vertical lip lines at bay! It is also smart to keep the skin around the mouth healthy and keep the strength of the collagen and elastin strong. The skin above, below, and on the sides of our lips, works hand in hand to keep that youthful upward turned corners of the lips/mouth. We sometimes need to look not only at what we are treating or perfecting, but also look at the underlying structure to keep long-lasting results. Not only does skin contain collagen, but lips do as well. Collagen production, as well as naturally occurring hyaluronic acid starts to slow at age 30. Viora’s lip enhancement treatment takes patients back to their high school yearbook photo. Why? When we are 18, our lips have full collagen and hyaluronic acid. We start to lose that between 28-30 years of age. It’s sometimes better to start younger, because there is more collagen and HA for the RF to target.

Viora’s non-invasive lip enhancement treatment does not include pain and feels incredibly comfortable, so you can just return to your everyday routine in no time.  With a little help from Viora’s professional treatment, you can have the lips of your youth.
