Non-surgical skin tightening for sagging skin, wrinkles, stretch marks and scarring.

What is skin tightening?

A non-surgical solution to sagging skin sounds like a dream. At Old City Medspa it is a dream come true. Our Viora skin tightening (or V-ST) technology is an incredibly effective non-surgical skin tightening treatment.

The V-ST improves fine lines and wrinkles, loose and sagging skin, scarring, textural issues and stretch marks. It also reduces the hanging fatty tissue occurring at the jaw line alongside weight gain or aging. This technology provides an excellent and effective alternative to surgical face-lifts, tummy tucks, and more.

Who can be treated with skin tightening?

V-ST is a very safe treatment, and most anyone is treatable. However, it is not safe to undergo this treatment if you have active cancer, open wounds in the treatment area, recent surgery, metal medical implants or recent trauma in the treatment area.

What are treatments like?

You will be made comfortable and relaxed in your private treatment room, and the provider will talk through any questions or concerns.

The treatment requires ultrasound gel, and the provider will apply the gel in small areas as the V-ST device is passed over the skin. At first you are unlikely to feel any heat or energy, but as the treatment continues you may begin to feel a sensation of warmth on the skin. While the goal is to use as much energy as you are comfortable with, the patient should never experience any discomfort. Depending on the size of the treatment area the procedure will take between ten to 30 minutes.

How many treatments will I need?

It depends on the issue being treated. Fine lines around the eyes and forehead may be treated in as few as three visits. Whereas someone with deep scarring or stretch marks may require as many as six to eight treatments.

How does this work?

Treatment results are accomplished using Viora’s patented Multi-CORE technology which delivers radio frequency (rf) energy to the layers of tissue. The tissue layers targeted depends on the concern being treated. Targeting more superficial layers addresses fine lines and texture of the skin, while the deeper layers are targeted for more lifting and overall tightening. Viora Multi-CORE has the capability to target one layer or multiple layers simultaneously.

Radio frequency energy is a form of electromagnetic energy. When applied to tissue, it produces electromagnetic fields and causes molecules in the tissue to vibrate. The result of this vibration is the generation of heat.

The heat generated has two effects. One effect is increased circulation to fat cells. Cells respond by expelling triglycerides and increasing their absorption of oxygen and nutrients. This in turn improves cell metabolism and results in a decrease in the size of the fat cells. The second effect is the remodeling of collagen. Old collagen is broken down and new production is initiated. Because collagen provides much of the structure of the skin, activating the production of new collagen results in natural lifting and tightening.

The combined effect is the reduction in fat in the deeper tissue layers and more structure and firmness to the superficial tissue layers. The result is smoother, tighter skin.

Does it hurt?

You may have heard of radio frequency treatments being painful. For some technologies that is true. Older devices using radio frequency were delivered to the tissue using a single electrode. This allowed energy to pass through the patient into a large grounding electrode pad on the the other side of the body, and often created a very uncomfortable experience.

Our Viora Multi-CORE technology uses two electrodes within a small hand piece allowing energy to pass through a very small area. The result is a more localized therapy and a much more comfortable experience.

In addition to being more comfortable for the patient, the Multi-CORE technology allows for faster heating. This results in shorter treatment time, even heating, better clinical outcomes, and lower chances for side effects.

Can this type of treatment be used for the body?

This same technology is used in our V-Form protocols (such as the ReFit protocol) to reduce sagging skin on the body, such as occurs with post pregnancy, post liposuction, or after loosing a great deal of weight. It is also used to reduce cellulite and fat volume on the buttocks, thighs, back, abdomen, arms and more. We will go into greater detail on these types of treatments in another post.
