We chat to skin guru Nicky Quinn about the latest technology in non-invasive treatments – Viora Skin Tightening and Body Contouring.
Can you tell us a bit about your body contouring and skin tightening treatments?
Viora body contouring and skin tightening is a non-invasive and gentle treatment that uses radio frequency and vacuum therapy to tighten and tone the skin, contour the body and shrink fat cell volume. Loose or saggy skin is often formed after pregnancy, weight loss or just through aging as we lose the natural elasticity in our skin. It’s been great for tightening the “mummy tummy” loose skin, reducing cellulite and tightening up the skin around the eyes, jawline, legs and arms.
How does it work?
The radio frequency initiates tissue heating in the dermis layer of the skin, as well as the hypodermis below it (fat storage layer) to stimulate new collagen formation and facilitate the reduction of fat cell volume, resulting in improved and tighter skin texture. For body contouring, the combined mechanical vacuum therapy works on lymphatic drainage, minimising the look of lumpy skin and sculpting the body. Treatments take about 30 minutes, and we recommend between four to eight treatments for best results. It’s a fantastic alternative for those not wanting to go under the knife!
Are the treatments safe?
Yes, the treatments are FDA approved and clinically proven. The radio frequency energy used is non-ionising radiation, and on a scale of frequency is lower than the radiation from a TV or FM radio. In addition, it isn’t light based energy, so there is no danger of a skin response, unlike with laser treatments. It’s fast, effective and completely pain-free, with no downtime. Most clients describe the treatment as very relaxing!
Skin tightening treatments start at $199
