Chemical Peels

Chemical peels improve the overall appearance of your facial skin by removing the damaged outer layer, and as a result, facial blemishes, wrinkles, and uneven skin pigmentation are virtually eliminated.

A variety of peeling agents and formulations can be used, but the most consistent and commonly used agents are alphahydroxy acids (AHAs), trichloroacetic acid (TCA), and phenol.

Viora Reaction™

Cellulite is a particularly stubborn form of fat. It doesn’t respond to diet and exercise efforts, so even people who work hard to stay thin can have cellulite. These dimpled deposits of fat that collect just beneath the skin develop when collagen breaks down due to poor blood flow in the area. The condition affects nearly eight out of 10 women over the age of 20, as well as some men.


But now we have a new form of technology designed to successfully combat cellulite. Viora Reaction produces visible results after just one treatment, working to eliminate cellulite as it contours the body and tightens the skin. This procedure is done in the office and requires no anesthesia or recovery time, making it the perfect lunch break appointment.

Viora Reaction is a totally new treatment method that uses patented CORE technology. This provides maximum control, precise targeting and extensive penetration of the skin for the best results in minimal time—treatments only last 15 to 25 minutes. Reaction employs radio frequency energy, in combination with vacuum therapy, for the most comprehensive method of combating cellulite. It works to promote blood circulation in the area and increase lymphatic drainage, which successfully shrinks the volume of unwanted fat cells.
