Skin Tightening (Viora Reaction™)
Performed at our Duluth, GA medical office, north of Atlanta.
Although you can eliminate excess fat using a healthy diet, exercise, or liposuction surgery, cellulite is a different story. Even people who maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle can have cellulite. Caused when there is a lack of blood flow and collagen breakdown, cellulite appears as dimpled, shallow fat deposits just under the skin’s surface that is difficult to get rid of. However, Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center’s newest technology, Viora Reaction™ can treat cellulite while tightening skin and contouring the body.
While we’ve offered other cellulite treatments at Laser Lights in Duluth, GA (just north of Atlanta), like Endermologie®, Viora Reaction™ technology is unique. Powered by CORE™ technology (Channeling Optimized RF Energy), Reaction™ uses three radio frequency modes simultaneously for a complete treatment. The technology also uses a vacuum therapy that boosts circulation, reduces the size of fat cells, and stimulates lymphatic drainage to get the most out of the RF penetration. By heating the deep tissue, adipocytes (fat cells) begin to breakdown through metabolic stimulation. Although you will see visible results in just one treatment, you’ll see optimal results after six to eight short treatments. Not only will you notice a reduction in cellulite, but you’ll also see a reduction in the circumference of your treatment area, as well as an improvement in the skin’s texture.

When using Reaction™ for cellulite reduction, you also get the added benefit of improved skin texture and tightening. In fact, Viora Reaction™ can be used specifically for skin tightening as an anti-aging treatment. Over time your skin begins to show signs of aging from sun exposure, environmental pollutants, cigarette smoke, and chronological age. Many people begin to experience uneven skin tone and texture, wrinkles, folds around the mouth, eyes, and along the forehead as early as their late 30s. Reaction™ works to tighten the skin by improving its elasticity through the use of RF energy. The energy stimulates collagen and elastin fiber production. You’ll notice firmer, tighter skin after just one treatment.
Reaction™ for skin tightening works as a non-surgical facelift alternative. From the forehead, cheeks, and jowls, to delicate areas such as around the eyes and neck, Reaction™ is perfect for an overall facial rejuvenation.
How does Reaction™ cellulite treatment work?
Using three RF modes that can be used individually or simultaneously, Reaction™ reduces cellulite and tightens skin by heating deep dermal layers and promoting collagen production. The vacuum therapy feature helps get the most out of each treatment by boosting circulation, reducing fat cell size, and stimulating lymphatic drainage to result in a smoother skin appearance.
How many cellulite treatments with Reaction® will I need?
While you will notice a difference in the elasticity of your skin immediately, we recommend between four and eight treatment sessions for optimal results. Treatment session needs vary from patient to patient, but during a consultation, our licensed providers can give you a better idea of how many treatment sessions you will need to achieve your desired results.
Does Reaction™ treatment hurt?
No, Reaction™ cellulite reduction and skin tightening treatment does not hurt. Most patients compare the treatment to a deep tissue massage.
What areas can be treated with Reaction™ skin tightening?
Reaction™ for skin tightening provides the best results on the face, from the forehead all the way down to the jowls and neck. However, Reaction™ skin tightening can also be used to reduce the appearance, coloration, and noticeability of stretch marks in areas like the underarms, calves, and hips.
How many skin tightening sessions will I need?
As with Reaction™ cellulite reduction, you’ll notice a difference immediately. However, most patients undergo 3-5 treatments for optimal results. Schedule a consultation to get a better idea of how many sessions you will need.
How much downtime should I expect with Reaction™ treatment?
Reaction™ is non-surgical and non-invasive, so there is no downtime. You can benefit from a few short treatment sessions (lasting 20-30 minutes each) without any downtime.
