Patients that are seeking a new method for rejuvenating their looks but are hesitant about the invasiveness of surgical methods now have a new option to choose for skin tightening, contouring of the face, removing signs of aging and lax skin on the face. Viora Reaction™ treatments are a new procedure that merges radio frequency (RF) energy and vacuum therapy into a revolutionary mechanism that facilitates the healing processes that naturally occur within the human body. This new method presents a safe and effective treatment perfect for facial areas, such as the jowls, cheeks, brows and the sensitive areas of both the eyes and forehead. Located in Carmel and Greenwood, Hamilton Facial Plastic Surgery, led by double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Mark M. Hamilton, MD, FACS, offers Viora Reaction™ treatments to men and women who live in and around Indianapolis, IN to combat cellulite.
What is Viora Reaction™?
Viora Reaction™ is a cellulite treatment that helps tighten the skin. Multiple treatments with Viora Reaction™ help firm, lift and tighten areas of the body affected by cellulite. Treatments on the face usually require less treatments than those on the body.
The causes of cellulite may include metabolism changes, diet and exercise habits, hormonal factors, inflammation and changes in connective tissue structure.
Hormonal changes are a key factor in cellulite formation. Estrogen is probably the critical hormone in the formation and intensification of cellulite. Other hormones, including noradrenaline, insulin and thyroid hormones are believed to play a role in the formation of cellulite.
Benefits of Viora Reaction™
In addition to improved feelings of self-esteem, Viora Reaction™ benefits include:
- The procedure is non-invasive.
- Effective for most parts of the body.
- Noticeable results after only one session.
- Less time intensive than liposuction.
How Viora Reaction™ Improves the Appearance of Cellulite
The most unpleasant aspect of cellulite is the skin dimpling it causes. This happens when underlying connective tissue becomes rigid and tight, which traps fat cells inside its inflexible fibers. When this occurs, the fat cells and fibers begin pulling on the skin above, leading to the “cottage cheese” effect called cellulite.
The Viora Reaction™ method enhances the appearance of cellulite in a number of different ways. It delivers radio frequency (RF) energy in the form of heat into fat cells. This destroys them and the body then removes them as waste using the lymph system. It also delivers heat energy into tissue cells, which triggers the production of collagen — a substance that helps form healthy, elastic skin.
In addition to these effects, the tight bands that have trapped fat cells will gain flexibility, enabling them to release damaged fat cells into the lymph system to be eliminated from the body.
What Is the Procedure for Viora Reaction™?
Viora Reaction™ treatments have no adverse effects and are FDA approved. The vacuum therapy uniquely maximizes and directs the penetration of RF energy precisely to the treatment area, as well as enhancing the circulation of blood to the treated area.
For facial treatments, a short thermal heat pulse will be delivered. Facial procedures normally necessitate four to six RF passes. The hand piece tip delivers a cooling sensation when touching the skin. The tip helps cool and protect the outer skin layers while the RF energy penetrates the skin deeply, heating dermis collagen fibers and deeper tissues.
There is no pain or discomfort associated with using Viora Reaction™. This is because the treatments use an exclusive mechanism to cool the skin in conjunction with a cooling gel that is applied to the skin for the patient’s utmost comfort.
Viora Reaction™ treatments are rapid, taking approximately 15 minutes per area, making them perfect for busy patients with hectic schedules concerned about recovery times.
How Many Sessions Will Be Required for Viora Reaction™?
Even though improvement may be noticeable following just one treatment, many people prefer to have as many as eight sessions performed for ideal results. Viora Reaction™ treatments are typically performed in a series of three to five sessions depending on the areas being treated and the results can be seen swiftly.
Can Multiple Areas Be Treated Simultaneously with Viora Reaction™?
Factors that determine how many areas can be treated at once include your health history and your goals for your treatment.
When Will I Notice Results from Viora Reaction™?
Skin texture improvement or cellulite reduction should be noticed immediately following your treatment. You should continue to see improvement for the next several weeks of treatment.
Preparing for Viora Reaction™
If you undergo facial liposuction, you usually must make some dietary changes and prepare for a lengthy recovery period. With Viora Reaction™, you should feel as though you just enjoyed a nice massage, rather than having undergone a medical procedure. Many patients are so relaxed during the procedure that they fall asleep. The treatment can also take place even if you just ate lunch.
Viora Reaction™ Recovery
Very little will be required of you regarding aftercare. Most people feel similarly after treatment as they do following a nice massage. You will probably feel so relaxed and refreshed that you only want to sleep at home. Some patients are too relaxed to return to daily activities and prefer to spend time reclined in bed.
How Much Does Viora Reaction™ Cost in Indianapolis?
Because this type of treatment is considered to be an elective procedure by most insurance companies, they do not cover Viora Reaction™. So that the procedure is available and affordable to the most number of people, Hamilton Facial Plastic Surgery accepts cash, personal checks and credit cards. We also offer financing.
Is Viora Reaction™ Right For Me?
Viora Reaction™ is appropriate for those who seek skin tightening and smoothing, as well as cellulite reduction and facial contouring. The typical patient is between the ages of 30 and 70 years old and suffers from wrinkled skin or mild to moderate skin laxity. People who have had facelifts and seek better results are also good candidates.

Your first complimentary consultation begins with an examination of your skin.
