Cellulite Treatment

Diet and exercise are the best ways to change your body and improve your outlook on life. But even with complete dedication to a healthy lifestyle, some concerns linger no matter how hard you work. Cellulite is a common source of frustration for women who work hard to maintain a slim, smooth figure. Although often mistaken as an issue associated with weight, cellulite can affect anyone regardless of body type or fitness level, and losing weight rarely gets rid of it altogether.

Cellulite has historically been difficult to treat. Thanks to a growing category of nonsurgical technologies, however, we are better equipped than ever to restore a smoother, firmer texture to dimpled areas of the skin. Viora cellulite reduction treatments offer an effective solution with no downtime and long-lasting results.

How Does Cellulite Form and What Can Treat It?

Cellulite forms when the fibrous tissues that connect the skin and to the underlying muscles stiffen. As they tighten, they pull down on the skin and allow the layer of fat below the skin to push upward. This creates the characteristic dimpled or “cottage cheese” appearance of cellulite.

As many as 90% of adult women have cellulite, yet its causes are not well understood. Genetics play a significant role in determining skin structure and body type. Hormonal factors may also be involved, which is why it’s prevalent later in life and during pregnancy. Weight gain can make cellulite more conspicuous, but lean and fit people have cellulite as well. Cellulite commonly appears in the abdomen, buttocks and thighs.

Several treatments can improve cellulite, including both surgical and nonsurgical options. At Aesthetic Envy, we use a noninvasive body contouring technology known as Viora. The treatment provides tighter, firmer skin by means of fat reduction and skin tightening. Viora is a safe and clinically proven technology for the treatment of cellulite.

What Is Viora?

Viora is an FDA-approved device that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to minimize the appearance of irregular, dimpled skin. The treatment works by heating the hypodermal layers of the skin to increase blood circulation and fat cell metabolism. This gentle heating effect leads to fat volume reduction and remodeling of the connective tissues that tighten the skin. The Viora system also incorporates vacuum therapy, which maximizes the penetration of RF energy to further stimulate blood circulation, increase lymphatic drainage and shrink fat cells. The result is improved skin texture and tone and a reduction in fat volume.

What Areas Can Viora Treat?

Viora can be used on any part of the body where cellulite is noticeable, including:

  • Arms
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Back
  • Buttocks

Am I a Good Candidate for Viora Cellulite Reduction?

Viora is an excellent treatment for women and men of any skin type who are struggling with the appearance of cellulite. Patients should understand that cellulite reduction is not a treatment for weight loss; it’s intended specifically for tightening the skin and smoothing out unflattering dimpled areas. It’s important to keep realistic goals in mind. During an initial consultation, our friendly staff will review your goals and expectations to ensure that Viora is right for you. Patients who have mild to moderate cellulite and exercise regularly prior to treatment typically see the best results.

What Happens During a Viora Cellulite Treatment?

Your cellulite treatment with Viora will be entirely customized to your unique needs. How long the session takes depends on the size and number of treated areas being treated. During the procedure, the Viora handheld device will be held against your skin while it sends pulses of RF energy to the hypodermal layers. While you may feel a heating sensation and vacuum suction, it is not a painful procedure. We offer the use of topical numbing medication and/or our Cryo machine at no additional cost if you are concerned about your comfort. The RF energy and suction will be adjusted to ensure the least discomfort and attain the best results possible.

Is There Downtime After a Viora Cellulite Treatment?

Cellulite reduction with Viora has little to no downtime. Redness and swelling may appear in the treated area, but these side effects are normal and temporary. Redness typically subsides within a few hours, while swelling can last up to three to five days. Overall, the recovery process after treatment with RF energy is quick and easy, and patients are often able to return to normal activities as soon as their appointment is finished.

What Results Can I Expect With Viora Cellulite Reduction?

Areas treated with Viora will gradually improve over the weeks following a treatment. Some patients notice that their skin looks firmer immediately after a session. As blood circulation increases, fat cells shrink and new collagen develops, the treated areas will continue to become smoother and tighter. The full effects of the cellulite reduction procedure will be visible approximately two months after treatment.

The number of Viora sessions needed varies based on the treated area(s) and the patient’s aesthetic goals. We typically recommend a series of treatment sessions to achieve maximum cellulite reduction. Scheduling regular follow-up sessions every three to six months ensures long-lasting results.

Banish Cellulite Bulges With Viora

Even the healthiest diet and the strictest fitness regimen cannot eliminate cellulite completely. Fortunately, Viora offers a sophisticated, nonsurgical solution that provides natural and long-lasting results. RF cellulite reduction is a noninvasive and proven treatment that can give you smooth, healthy skin and the confidence to wear swimsuits and higher hemlines.
