Viora Cellulite Reduction: There several factors which are involve in the formation of and contribute to the appearance of cellulite: Impairment or lymphatic drainage leading to the accumulation of lymphatic fluid waste and edema. Reduced venous flow blood microcirculation and metabolism of the tissue which ultimately deprive cells of oxygen and nutrients. Increase in rigid and inflexible collagen fibers viola's proprietary & Technologies. With multi-RF channels and vacuum suction, addresses these factors combining deep tissue heating though bi-polar / multi polar RF and Vacuum action. These technologies help to reduce cellulite by treating the symptoms effectively and safely. This treatment provides consistent long-term results, primarily in the appearance of firmer and tighter skin.

The heating effect in the dermal layers also contributes to connective tissue remodeling which tighten the skin for a longer period of time.

Ultra-Shape Power -(2 Weeks) Ultra Shape's gentle ultrasound energy destroys the walls of fat cells in your body and releases that fat in the form of triglycerides. Those triglycerides are then processed through the liver and eliminated from the body naturally. Meanwhile, the surrounding tissue, nerves and muscles are left completely unharmed.

Body Sculp-(4-6 weeks) What is BodySculp? BodySculp is a laser-based, noninvasive, nonsurgical cosmetic body treatment that is used to target and reduce or eliminate fat. It works for both men and women and on a variety of body types. The procedure requires no incisions or anesthesia. However, the patient may experience some minimal discomfort. A procedure takes approximately 25 minutes and can target up to 4 areas at once and there is little to no recovery time. How does BodySculp work? BodySculp is a type of lipolysis. Lipolysis is a fat-eliminating process. BodySculp uses laser technology to “melt” fat cells away. What does BodySculp do? BodySculp includes 4-treatment applicators that connect to a hands-free laser belt. The applicators dissipate a 1060nm wavelength of energy and the laser energy will heat to eliminate fat cells. The BodySculp is FDA cleared for noninvasive lipolysis in the following areas: • upper abdominal area • lower abdominal area • flanks Patients who are treated with the BodySculp must have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or less. BodySculp is not a weight loss treatment and is not an option for people with obesity. Preparing for BodySculp Treatment When discussing the procedure with your patient, you should communicate which areas of their body that they are interested in treating. At least 3 sessions are required to reach their goals. Based on licensing rules in your state, the licensed practitioner may be a: • doctor • physician’s assistant • nurse practitioner • nurse • aesthetician The first BodySculp consultation may take place right before the treatment. Be prepared to discuss the patient’s medical history and what medications they are currently on. To minimize the chance of bruising, the patient should be told to avoid blood thinners, Ibuprofen or aspirin a few days before a BodySculp treatment. Treatment Seat the patient in a comfortable, reclined position and mark the treatment areas on their body. Begin with a 4-minute warming phase. Set the applicator energy to 1-W/cm2 for 2-minutes. After 2-minutes increase the applicator energy to 1.1-W/ cm2 After an additional 2-minutes, increase the applicator energy to 1.3-W/ cm2 During treatment, the BodySculp belt and applicators are wrapped around the treatment area. The applicators deliver a 1060-nanometer of light that will reach a temperature between 107.6 and 116.6°F. This temperature will kill fat cells underneath the skin while leaving other tissues unharmed. The BodySculp device alternates between delivering a cooling effect and the laser heat. Each treatment takes about 25 minutes. Over the next few weeks after the procedure, the patient’s lymphatic system naturally flushes out the eliminated fat cells. Additional treatments should be scheduled 4-6 weeks apart. BodySculp risks and side effects The heating phases during treatment may cause some minor discomfort. However, a numbing agent or anesthesia can be used but is not necessary. After treatment, the patient may experience some soreness and stiffness. While rare, the patient may also experience bruising in the treated areas. The patient may want to massage the firm areas during the weeks after the procedure. BodySculp results and recovery BodySculp takes 25 minutes and is non-invasive with little to no recovery time. This means that the patient could feasibly have a treatment done on their lunch break and return to regular work immediately. As your patient’s body metabolizes the eliminated fat cells, fat reduction may be noticeable in as few as three weeks after one treatment. On average, one session should result in a 24 percent reduction of fat in the treated area. Full results are normally seen 12 weeks after the last treatment. Because the cells eliminated during the procedure are destroyed with the laser, these cells will not regenerate. Desired fat reduction should be maintained through healthy diet and exercise. The BodySculp delivers laser energy to heat the deep layer of fat. The heat that is created damages the fat cells. The damaged fat cells are then eliminated by the body through your lymphatic system. During the laser delivery, the applicators cool the skin throughout the entire treatment. When the treatment begins, it will feel warm, and over time the heat sensation will increase to short periods of intense deep heat. You may also experience some cramping, tingling, prickling or squeezing sensations deep in the fat layer. These sensations are normal and expected. These sensations indicate that the laser is effectively targeting and damaging the fat layer. • I consent to wear protective eyewear. • The treated areas should be massaged two (2) times a day for five to ten (5-10) minutes. There are no lifestyle restrictions following your BodySculp treatment.
