Reaction and the CORE™ Advantage Viora has developed Reaction™ — a bipolar RF device combined with a vacuum therapy — to produce a high-frequency electrical current in the skin for non-invasive skin tightening, reduction of cellulite, and elimination of fine wrinkles on a variety of body areas such as the face, neck, arms, abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. The system integrates unique CORE™ technology, which allows independent heating depth control by applying three separate RF frequencies — at 0.8 MHz, 1.7 MHz, and 2.45 MHz — and an additional mode that combines all three frequencies in a single pulse. These four different frequency modes can be independently selected with any energy and probe setting. This way it is possible to control the heating depth as required by each patient’s symptoms and for each treatment application. Adding a vacuum mechanism to Reaction™ ensures


even deeper penetration of the energy, thereby enhancing the treatment process. In addition, four vacuum levels offer increased blood flow, enhancing lymphatic drainage, which activates the metabolism to shrink fat chambers and provide mechanical fibroblast stimulation.


Introducing ReFit Owing to the advantages of CORE™ technology and the combined use of vacuum, Viora has been able to develop the ReFit protocol. ReFit treatments are ideal for addressing sagging and loose skin after rapid weight loss as a result of surgical procedures, dieting, exercise or childbirth. A safe, non-invasive solution, with no down-time for patients, ReFit provides skin tightening and also addresses stretch marks.


Following its introduction, physicians are now


discovering the benefits of the ReFit protocol being used in conjunction with fat-reduction procedures such as liposuction, laser lipolysis, and ultrasound cavitation, for example. ‘Since liposuction and laser-lipolysis procedures


cannot treat cellulite and sagging skin, the use of RF energy is an ideal solution to use after these treatments to smooth and firm the skin, and remove any residual ‘lumpiness’ or swelling,’ says Dr Daniel Man, of Dr Man, MD Plastic Surgery in Boca Raton, Florida. ‘With the use of RF technology and vacuum therapy, we have found the use of ReFit to significantly improve the patients’ skin texture and it greatly assists with the healing time, due to reduced oedema and is proving to be extremely beneficial after these fat reduction techniques.’ ‘We have begun using Reaction and the ReFit


protocol with our liposuction procedures and have seen tremendous and exciting outcomes,’ says Dr Man. ‘Our patients are extremely satisfied with the results and we are finding that pairing fat reduction techniques with ReFit is an ideal solution for us.’
