You can feel it in your bones, right? The air has turned from sweltering and heavy to cool, crisp, and tinged with all things pumpkin spice. The vivid greens of summer have softened to warm reds and oranges, and storefronts and home entryways everywhere suddenly pop with jack-o-lanterns, hay bales, and creepy-crawly decor. Everyone’s favorite spooky holiday is upon us. Here comes Halloween and here comes its parties and costumes, too. And whether you decide to dress up as a cheerleader, hot dog, or a sexy sailor, Halloween costumes mean exposed skin, and while spiders and webs are on theme, they belong decking the window panes of haunted houses, not on the backs of your legs. Spider veins plague half of the adult population, and while they’re common, they don’t have to frighten you any longer. Viora is here to finally break the curse of vascular lesions, and it’s no hocus pocus.
Why Is My Skin Crawling?
Vascular lesions don’t only show up in the form of spider veins; these skin ailments can also emerge as other conditions like port wine stains, cherry angiomas, and more. And they are caused by an array of factors including age, health, pregnancy, weight gain, obesity and of course genetics. Regardless of whether you have spider veins or rosacea, these lesions are indicative of a problem deep inside the vein or valve. Essentially, blood isn’t flowing as it should, or may potentially be blocked, and as a result of this disruption, your blood must find a way out. It then creeps and crawls its way into smaller capillaries causing the unpleasant appearance of vascular lesions.
With Great Power (Tools) Comes Great Responsibility
Viora’s Vascular Lesions (VL) is a treatment designed to obliterate your skin’s unsightly, unwanted, unnecessary abrasions. The idea is that when the perfect light is applied to your own unique skin using our state-of-the-art handpieces (V-IPL or V-Nd:YAG), The generated heat proceeds to coagulate and collapse the vessel so that it doesn’t fill up again. The blood vessel is eventually cleared completely from your body by hungry Pac-Man-esque cells called Phagocytes. In other words, your friends won’t suspect that you may be able to once again shoot webs from your wrists after your treatment sessions are complete.
Viora’s advanced and proprietary PCR™ Technology allows your practitioner full control and customization. Treatments can be tailored to your unique skin condition and your skin type for the safest and the most effective treatments possible. In addition to safety, Viora’s unique Contact Cooling technology ensures the most comfortable treatment possible with minimal downtime.
Trick or Treat Yo’self
The days of the back of your knees looking like real-life Halloween decorations are over. And the even better news is that Viora’s super advanced Vascular Lesions (VL) treatment is ingenious at administering all ranges of skin types, can accommodate a scope of spot and lesion sizes and colors, and can be done anywhere on the body that is in need. Also, even though you will technically be enduring flashes of light, you can expect to feel a cooling sensation as a part of your treatment sessions, so prepare to be comfortable and to have very limited down time. These treatments only take 10-20 minutes to perform and only 4-6 treatments are recommended (depending on the amount of the spider veins) every 3-6 months leaving you feeling a bit like a superhero after all.
