The Science Behind the Beauty

The 21st century has made incredible leaps and bounds.  The last century saw mankind go from horse and buggy to the automobile.  From mountains to the moon, and from high deathrates to penicillin.  We live longer, drive further and faster, and enjoy more leisure than most societies in history.  That leisure often translates to sun exposure, and sun exposure ages our skin, it loses its elasticity and punch. The glow fades, and the wrinkles move in.  And lest we forget, time has its own way with our skin.  By the age of 30, our collagen production, one of the most plentiful proteins in our body, begins to slow.  That means the nice firmness we enjoyed in our youth begins to slump, leaving our skin unsupported and less resilient with more wrinkles.  There is nothing wrong with wrinkles.  They are a natural progression of sun and time damage.  Our ancestors all dealt with them, BUT it is the 21st century and there isn’t anything wrong with diminishing wrinkles and sun damage either.

Some of us just skip to the end and delight in the “before and afters” looking forward to their own results, but let’s talk about how these results happen.  Remember collagen?  Ah, yes, the cushion of our skin.  The same one that gets beat up by time and sun.  There are some interesting ways to replace good old collagen— injections, creams, diets, and magic.  Some of them work, but if we could stimulate the body to grow more collagen, that would be more natural, last longer, and look better, right? That’s what radiofrequency therapy does!  It stimulates the body to grow long-lasting

collagen.  That in turn plumps up the skin, reducing sag, laxity, wrinkles, and adds some resiliency back.  Since it’s a stimulation of a natural protein, it takes several visits to build on the growth, and then once the rejuvenation has settled, it only takes a visit or two each year to maintain it!  Injections?  No.  Lots of counsel to use sunscreen, and reduce the sun’s punch? YES!  Any toxins? Nope.

Enter, the power of radio energy (RF) and Pulse Light Therapy (IPL) technologies.  These technologies have been around for decades, and improved upon by the Israeli company, Viora.  Viora’s innovative technology improvements have led the industry of aesthetics and dermatological advances in skin rejuvenation.

Blemishes of the skin come in all shapes and types.  It could be those pesky little blood vessels, the redness of rosacea, pimples or scars of acne, hyperpigmentation from too many sunburns or hair in the wrong place.  Each of these distractions can be addressed with Intense Pulse Light (IPL) therapy.  How does it work?  Ever notice how some things heat up in the sun more than other things?  How black sand is scorching hot and white sand is blinding?  IPL tunes into the frequency of your skin and your blemish and FLASH, it begins to fade.  Just like radio energy, it takes time.  Time for the energy to fade the blemish, time for the body to process the energy, and time to come back and do it again until it is satisfyingly faded or gone!

Finally lost those last 10 pounds, but the pooch persists?  The scale says one thing but the arms say another?  When this energy is used more deeply, it can help shape and reduce the stubborn fat cells that persist in the arms, face, stomach and back.
