Viora Q&A

What is the Viora Reaction™?

The Viora Reaction
™ is an advanced non-invasive system that tightens skin, reduces cellulite, contours the body, increases skin laxity, and reduces overall circumference. Dr. Fatakhov recommends this system due to the way its advanced technology stimulates the rapid regrowth of your own body’s natural collagen and shrinks fat cells by increasing blood circulation.


How does the Viora Reaction™ Work?

The Viora Reaction™ has two main components: the shrinking of fat cells by blood microcirculation and lymphatic drainage and the remodeling of the collagen network by heat and mechanical elastin strengthening.  The Viora Reaction™ stimulates existing collagen in the mid and lower layers of the skin through the use of specific radio frequencies. These frequencies create firming and tightening as they result in enhanced stimulation of collagen production and the strengthening of elastin fibers.  The ultimate effect is tightening of the collagen fibers resulting in improved skin laxity, decreased sagginess, and greatly improved texture.  While the fibers are contracting and growing stronger, the heat aspect of the treatment causes neocollagenesis (the process of making more collagen) to effectively reduce wrinkles.

The Viora Reaction™ can also greatly improve pesky cellulite. By combining multiple radio frequencies with vacuum therapy, deeper tissue penetration is possible. The system targets fat pockets to reduce the fat cell volume by increasing metabolism through localized blood circulation and lymphatic drainage. Deeper penetration provides an effective method for cellulite treatment, contouring, circumference reduction, and more skin tightening.


Where on the body can the Viora Reaction™ be used?

The Viora Reaction™ can be used to positively improve many areas of the body that exhibit varying degrees of collagen depletion. Viora is suitable for most facial areas including the forehead, cheeks, and jowls. The system can even be used on the sensitive eye area. Unlike other procedures, Viora can tighten and retexture lax skin in the neck, décolleté, tummy, hips, underarms, and calves.


Is the Viora Reaction™ painful?

The majority of recipients consider Viora Reaction™ procedures to be nearly pain free. Most describe facial treatment sensations as tiny pricks of heat at the site of application. When it comes to treatments in other parts of the body the sensation that is most frequently compared to be that of deep tissue massage.


Is the Viora Reaction™ safe?

The Viora Reaction™ is not only safe but also highly effective according to their study that reported the following results regarding system procedures:

  • 81% saw improved skin texture after their first treatment.
  • 75% saw reduced circumference after two treatments.
  • 70% saw noticeable improvement after a single skin tightening treatment.
  • There were zero reports of discomfort post treatment.
  • There were no adverse reactions recorded.


How many Viora Reaction™ treatments will you need?

For those aiming to tighten skin on the face and body, between 4 and 8 treatments scheduled 2 to 3 weeks apart are recommended (depending on the desired level of correction and current physical condition). Once all treatments are complete a follow-up maintenance treatment is recommended and should be scheduled 4 to 6 months after completion. For those aiming to reduce cellulite and circumference, Dr. Fatakhov recommends at least 8 treatments scheduled one week apart. The maintenance treatment applies for reductions as well. If you need more information on the Viora Reaction, please contact The Center for Internal and Integrative Medicine to schedule a consultation with Dr. Fatakhov and his certified staff.
