ReactionTM Cellulite Treatment in Annapolis, MD
Viora ReactionTM is a safe, non-invasive and effective method to treat unwanted cellulite and tighten lax skin on the face and body.
What Causes Cellulite to Form?
Fat cells in the subcutaneous layer of your skin are arranged in chambers surrounded by bands of connective tissue called septae. As the volume of fat cells increases, the surrounding septae contract and harden, leaving them unable to hold cells within their natural parameters. This causes the fat cells to push up against the skin surface, resulting in a dimpled skin appearance, also referred to as the lump ‘cottage-cheese’ effect.
How Does ReactionTM Treat Cellulite?
ReactionTM uses RF energy to the subcutaneous layers to heat skin tissues that contribute to cellulite. This deep tissue heating increases the metabolic breakdown of adipocytes in the superficial fat layer and increases the diffusion of oxygen in the cells. At the same time, the vacuum therapy intensifies the treatment to facilitate deeper penetration of heat, stimulate lymphatic drainage and enhance the elasticity of the septae.
ReactionTM treatment is suitable for multiple areas of the body including the buttocks, thighs, abdomen and underarms.
How Do I Tighten My Skin After Cellulite is Removed?
Dr. Lee Kleiman also uses Viora ReactionTM to provide skin tightening treatment. Fibroplasts are the major cells in the dermis which produce collagen and elastin fibers. The thickness of the dermis varies from person to person and is affected by age, exposure to the sun, cigarette smoke and environmental pollution. First signs of skin aging include uneven skin tone and texture, wrinkles and folds around the eyes and mouth, and stretch marks on various areas of the body.
Reaction™’s Skin Tightening procedure utilizes RF energy to stimulate existing collagen and elastin fibers, enhance collagen secretion, and improve skin’s elasticity over time. From the very first treatment, collagen fibers are contracted, giving an immediate firmed and tightened appearance.
The procedure is suitable for most areas of the face including the jowls, cheeks and forehead as well the sensitive areas of the eyes, neck and decollete. And now, unlike any other system, Reaction™’s skin tightening treatments can also treat stretch marks and lax skin on various areas of the body such as the tummy, underarm, calves and hips.
