Cellulite is a term used to describe lumpy flesh on areas of the body where connective cords have bound the skin to muscle, trapping fat cells in between. As fat cells accumulate, the cords keep the skin from accommodating them, resulting in the lumpy skin around the buttocks, thighs, breasts or arms. Pregnancy, weight gain, aging, and genetics all play a part in how much cellulite you may accumulate, and while it is much more common in women, men can acquire it as well. Cellulite is not harmful to your body, but many people seek out ways to treat it for cosmetic purposes.
Dr. Russell uses the Viora system to rid your arms, thighs, buttocks or stomach of unwanted cellulite. By using two systems, radio frequency (RF) and vacuum therapy, this laser-guided system works with the body’s natural regeneration process to rid it of unwanted cellulite. Radio frequencies target fatty areas to reduce volume, while the vacuum increases blood flow to the area and drainage away from it. As an added bonus, deep heating through RF technology stimulates collagen production in the area to tone and tighten your skin. Each zone takes approximately 20 minutes; arms or thighs are considered two zones.
The Viora system has been clinically proven to not only be safe and painless, but also to reduce cellulite during the first treatment. Since this process is painless and has no downtime, it is possible to get rid of cellulite on your lunch break and return to work the same day, knowing your body is better than before. Unlike liposuction, which requires significant healing and runs the risk of infection and scarring, Viora laser treatments are very natural looking and require no incisions or healing. All you will be left with is smooth, cellulite-free skin.
