Dr. David Halpern is pleased to offer the latest technology to reduce cellulite, improve skin firmness and smooth skin surface – without plastic surgery or liposuction. Reaction by Viora uses radio frequencies and vacuum therapy to encourage new collagen production, tighten existing collagen matrixes, and remove small pockets of unwanted cellulite. Viora is safe to use around the eyes since it is not light based without risk to damage to eyes and in deeply pigmented skin or suntanned skin without risk of pigment changes or burns.
The ideal Viora candidate has:
- An age between 30 and 65
- Mild to moderate skin laxity
- Wrinkled or dimpled skin
- Some orange peel or cottage cheese like fat, but not huge rolls
Viora can be used to improve the face, eyes, neck, chin, upper lip, buttocks, abdomen, knees, arms, and thighs. Many people combine radio frequency and vacuum treatment with plastic surgeries like facelifts, eyelifts or liposuction. Patients also seek Viora following pregnancy or significant weight-loss.

How Does Viora Work?
Reaction by Viora is the first and only FDA-approved multi-channel radio frequency treatment for cellulite and skin sagging. This versatile technology can be used in different ways, depending on what mode or body part is being treated. Generally speaking, it is a noninvasive treatment that uses a combination of radio frequencies and vacuum therapy. Thinner areas like the forehead are treated with a high frequency, while thicker areas like the cheeks and back are treated with lower multi-channel modes. To remove cellulite, subcutaneous tissue layers are heated to shrink fat cell volume, stimulate lymphatic drainage, prompt collagen and elastin production, and enhance blood circulation. From the patient’s vantage point, an applicator is massaged externally over the treatment area in slow, concentrated motions.
What’s The Recovery Like?
Unlike plastic surgery, there is no recovery time with Viora treatments. You can come in on your lunch break and go right back to work. Patients for cellulite reduction say they feel “a bit toasty” like they’ve been tanning – or as though they have just been in for “a deep tissue massage.” Patients for skin tightening feel “alternating sensations of heating and cooling,” but it is not painful. If you are feeling a bit sensitive, the doctor can adjust the frequency to a more comfortable level. Some patients have a little redness or slight bruising, but those are the only side effects reported.
How Many Viora Sessions Do You Need?
Each session varies from 30 minutes to an hour. The number of sessions are based on individual need. For most patients:
- 4-8 treatments (scheduled 2-3 weeks apart) are needed for skin tightening
- 8 treatments (scheduled 1 week apart) are needed for cellulite reduction
Diet and exercise can help you maintain your looks, but you may wish to come in for maintenance every 6-12 months for continued collagen renewal and the best possible results.
