Get Rid of Unwanted Hair With Viora® Hair Removal

Get Rid of Unwanted Hair With Viora® Hair Removal

As the clothes grow smaller during the warmer months, you’re once again doing everything you can to keep unwanted body hair in check. If you count up the hours (and money) you spend shaving, plucking, and waxing, the results may surprise you.

There is a better way with Viora® laser hair removal.

Here at Ideal MedSpas, our team offers advanced technologies that accomplish everything from wrinkle reduction to hair removal. At the heart of our laser treatments is our Viora technology, and we review how this system can make quick work of unwanted hair.

Behind the Viora technology

With Viora, we send light pulses into the follicles that create hair. The light energy disrupts the follicles, preventing them from growing more hair.

The treatments themselves are noninvasive, though you may feel some discomfort (like a rubber band snapping on your skin) as we deliver the pulses of light energy. To offset any discomfort, Viora is equipped with a cooling feature.

The intense pulsed light technology is safe enough for us to use almost anywhere on your body, including your:

The only place where we do not use Viora is around your eyes.

Your Viora timeline

Depending upon the size and location of your target areas, we generally need to deliver a series of treatments. We want to tackle all of the hair in your treatment areas because, at any given time, each of your hair follicles is in one of three phases:

  1. Telogen — resting phase
  2. Anagen — active growth phase
  3. Catagen — transitional phase

To ensure that we deliver the best results, we spread your treatments out so we can catch any dormant hair as it transitions into the growth phase.

Preparing for your Viora treatments

There’s not much you need to do to prepare for your Viora treatments, though we do ask that you stay out of the sun so you don’t darken your skin, which can make locating your hair follicles more difficult.

As well, please don’t remove hair from the follicles by plucking or waxing before your Viora treatments. You may shave, as this only removes the hair at the lower end of the shaft, but plucking and waxing beforehand makes it difficult for us to identify your follicles.

On the day of your appointment, we also ask that you keep your treatment areas free from lotions, deodorant, or makeup.

Your Viora results

After your Viora treatments, your existing hair will slowly fall out and the destroyed follicles will be absorbed into your body. Most of our patients enjoy months or years of smooth, hair-free skin and, if the hair comes back, it’s typically thinner and finer. At this point, you can return for some quick laser treatments to tackle this hair.
