After losing a great deal of weight, many people have loose or sagging skin that does not firm up with exercise. The only solution to this problem used to be surgery, but thanks to Viora ReFit™, going under the knife is no longer necessary.
What Is Viora Refit™?
ReFit™ is an FDA-approved procedure that uses Reaction™, another of Viora’s procedures that involves the use of RF waves and vacuum therapy to tighten the skin. When these RF waves are used to heat deep layers of skin, the underlying elastin and collagen fibers begin to shrink. This effectively tightens the skin in a problem area, while also increasing its elasticity. The procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis and requires no anesthesia or downtime whatsoever.
How Is Viora Refit™ Performed?
Before undergoing this procedure, a patient will meet with one of our surgeons for an initial consultation. During this visit, problem areas will be discussed so that a treatment plan can be created specifically for that individual. On the day of the procedure, the patient will simply lie on an examining table while a special device that transmits RF waves is run over the top of the skin. *This will take around 30 minutes, after which time he or she can return to normal activities.
When Will Results Be Noticed?
Results will be noticed as soon as the treatment session is over; however, several appointments may be needed to completely firm and tighten a problem area. The number of sessions will depend on the amount of loose skin that needs to be tightened.
Is Viora Refit™ Safe?
ReFit™ is a safe procedure when performed by a trained cosmetic surgeon. With ReFit™, there is absolutely no risk of a reaction to anesthesia, making it a much safer choice than surgery would be.
What Areas Can Viora Refit™ Be Used To Treat?
Although it is suitable for nearly any area of the body, it is most commonly used to tighten skin on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks and upper arm.
How Long Will Results Last?
How long the results last will depend on a person’s own lifestyle. As a person naturally ages, the skin can begin sagging again. Likewise, gaining a great deal of weight in the future could cause the skin to become loose or stretch marks to appear that were not present before. Those who maintain a healthy diet and exercise program can expect to enjoy the benefits of Viora ReFit™ for several years.
People lose weight so they can feel better about themselves and that’s hard to do when this weight loss results in extremely loose or sagging skin. Viora ReFit™ could be the answer for many people who are struggling with this issue.
