Over the past year or so I have been starting to think about anti-ageing products and treatments. I want to preserve what I have for as long as possible, don’t we all. I was invited to Renaissance Laser & Skin Clinic to try their new Viora Reaction treatment.
How it works
Viora delivers radio frequency energy to the underlying layers of the skin. As we age collagen fibres weaken; everything from sun exposure to smoking and stress has a damaging affect. Viora stimulates the production of collage and elastin but protects the surface of the skin, this means to redness, rashes or peeling.
What it can be used to treat
- Treats Cellulite
- Circumferential Reduction (for example, after having a baby or after liposuction)
- Skin tightening for ageing and lax skin on the face and body
- Skin tightening for the appearance of stretchmarks
I tried a skin tightening face treatment which claims to lift and tighten the skin. My lovely therapist Cristina was very knowledgable and answered all of my questions before she got started. She applied some conducting gel to an area of my face, then gently rested the device onto my skin. The area was treated in spots before moving on to the rest of my face. On their site Viora claims to be painless, I definitely felt something. It wasn’t very painful, more like a little sting on sensitive areas. For me that was my chin. I didn’t feel anything anywhere else except tickles on the left side of my face. Cue uncontrollable fits of giggles.
Immediately after treating one side of my face Kristina help up a mirror to show me what is called ‘the Cinderella effect’. The treated side was noticeably more lifted. Afterwards my skin looked normal, no redness but I looked rested. The lifting effects lasted a few days. But a course is recommended for sustained affects.
Some Viora before and afters. Note that these claim to be results after a course of treatments…

There are some more before and after pictures here if you want a nosy. A word of caution, as with any treatment, be realistic. The response to any treatment varies from person to person. You can find more information on the treatment at Renaissance Clinic. A therapist can talk to you about your needs and recommend a personal treatment plan, since everyone is different, 01 806 3200.
My therapist also recommended some IPL to treat some broke capillaries on my cheeks. I better start saving!
