Erasing Stretchmarks and Reviving the Skin on Your Body
- Posted on: Oct 13 2012
Have you ever heard the saying that you can tell a women’s real age by looking at her hands?
As we age, we often focus on taking care of the skin on our face while overlooking the skin on our bodies.
There of course are amazing technologies available to help with the skin on your face, but there are also many options to help with your body that are non-invasive and are very effective.
Fall is here, and we tend to think less about our bodies because it’s easier to hide in a pair of jeans and a sweater than it is in a bikini. But now is the perfect time to take care of your body, so that when the Spring rolls around, you’ll be ready to reveal your best body ever!
Take Inventory-An Honest Assestment
Ok, ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to take out the full length mirror-no hiding! I know the thought of a full length mirror strikes panic and many of us! But we need to really see ourselves. First, know that you are all beautiful! Take inventory and focus on all of the positive things that you love about your body. Celebrate them! Now, if there are any areas you aren’t as thrilled with-let’s take a look at those as well. The most common complaints I hear are:
- Cellulite (Ladies, don’t we all suffer with it at some point?)
- Loss of skin laxity (after having kids, losing weight, or simply just aging)
- Stretch Marks
Reaction by Viora is unique technology that is able to treat all of these issues. It utilizes the mechanism of advanced RF (radio frequency) energy and vacuum therapy to work with the body’s natural regeneration process to help in these areas:
- Cellulite treatment
- Circumferential reduction
- Skin-tightening for aging & lax skin on the face and body
- Skin tightening treatment for appearance of stretch marks
Let’s first address the topic of dreaded cellulite. We all know what it is, but do we know what causes it? Here’s a great answer from Viora:
“Fat cells in the subcutaneous layer 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, unable to hold the cells within the existing parameters. This causes the fat cells to push up against the skin surface, resulting in a dimpled skin appearance, also referred to as the lumpy, ‘cottage-cheese’ effect.
Using CORE™ technology, Reaction™ employs RF energy to the subcutaneous layers to heat the 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.
The treatment is suitable for multiple areas of the body including the buttocks, thighs, abdomen and underarms.”
Now, onto the issue of skin tightening and stretch marks.
“Fibroblasts 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 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.”
