Keynote on multi-technology platforms by VIORA

I was grateful to be invited to participate in the annual company training of VIORA machine manufacturer from Israel. The meeting was held at lovely ‘Movenpick Resort’ in Phuket, Thailand on May 26 ~ 28, 2016.

This was my first business trip traveling with colleagues of Good Union Company

Stunning scenery from my room

This was an old slide about development of a fractional radio frequency machine. I presented it once in 2012 and used this slide again as the first of my keynote presentation.


It was my first time to join VIORA company event and I had prepared a 30 minutes keynote presentation to share with colleagues about design concept, applications and unique features of the latest innovations of multi-technology platform series, e.g. V10 V20 and V30 with interchangeable hand pieces for skin tightening, fractional RF resurfacing with SVC (Switching-Vacuum-Cooling), long pulse 1064nm Nd:YAG laser with PCR (PulseConfiguRythm™ Control), Intense Pulse lights with PCR (PulseConfiguRythm™ Control), e.g. V-ST, V-FR, V-Nd:YAG, V-IPL and the latest developed and my new favorite for non-invasive body contouring (BC) and skin tightening V-FORM hand pieces (HP) with Multi-CORE and ABS (Anti-burn system).

V-FORM BC HP can be connected to large and small size of tips for treatment. Apart from a very unique appearance of hard ware design, the large size V-FORM BC HP has very large area coverage 97×83 mm2. The new Multi-CORE system and Anti-burn system allow RF energy to penetrate deeply and produce large volume of homogeneous warming inside subcutaneous fat layer at 3 cm from skin surface without causing epidermal injury and patient’s discomfort. Total treatment time of whole abdomen of average size Chinese can be as short as 20 minutes. It is very suitable as lunch time procedure.

One of most difficult presentation I have ever made 2 years ago. I wanted to ease our life, limited the scope of aesthetic medicine and suggested an approach on practice of aesthetic medicine.


A simplified idea of polymodal balanced approach in combination of aesthetic procedures.


I first presented the concept of application of ‘a poly-modal balanced approach’ on aesthetic medicine in 2009. At that time, most of aesthetic treatments are based on a single modality. For example, IPL or 800nm Diode laser for hair removal, fractional non-ablative laser resurfacing for skin rejuvenation. A stand alone machine can provide treatment for a few indications. Combination of different machine treatments or modalities was not common.

There were another type of machines called all-in-one machines. A machine with a few applicators or modules combining together as a unit. More treatment can be provided. However, mostly the size of all-in- one machine was big and its hard ware was not up-gradable. If there was malfunctioning of a module, the whole machine should be sent for repair.

Therefore I purposed a new concept of machine design, multi-technology platforms based on ‘the concept of poly-modal balanced approach’ It was my dream for many years. All applicators can be plugged in and interchangeable for usage.

It is difficult to rely on a single treatment modality to treat a diseased or ageing skin condition in all patients with all skin color types.

As a result, a well designed complete aesthetic platform should consist of multiple modalities to successfully manage any skin conditions within an individual and patients with different skin color I to VI. Therefore, patients can be treated in a rational, ethical and cost-effective way and not subjected to unnecessary side effects of treatments or prolonged treatment duration.

An aesthetic multi-technology platform works as a central unit of energy supply.
For example, it should provide various kinds of energies such as radio frequency energy, lasers and light energy.

All radio frequency energy dependent (RF-dependent) hand pieces (HPs) or applicators are connected to the universal RF connector of the platform. Same as lasers and IPL HPs which are plugged into Laser energy universal connector or IPL connector, respectively.

Newly developed application HPs can be easily add-on to the platform via same universal connectors.

Therefore, multi-technology platform is up-gradable in both hard wares and softwares, functionally expandable and more economical in space and money.

V-series (V10, V20 & V30) Platforms by VIORA are examples of multi-technology platforms.

For example: Unwanted hair removal
Both Nd:YAG 1064nm lasers and IPL with 570nm and 630nm filter are applied
Hand pieces: V-Nd:YAG laser HP and V-IPL HP. Both of them have PulseConfigRythm system which can make the light or laser pulse as single pulse, a train of multiple sub-pulses or rapid pulses of low fluence. More time for heat dispersion is suitable to darker skin type. In addition to very effective water cooling system to keep the glass tip of both V-IPL and V-Nd:YAG HP at 5C, pain, risk of epidermal thermal injury and post-inflammation hyper-pigmentation are minimized.
V-IPL 570nm for average hair on lighter skin
V-IPL 630nm for hair on darker skin type
V-Nd:YAG 1064nm laser for dark hair with hair follicles inside deep dermal region
Modalities are enough to remove unwanted hair thin to thick, sparse to dense, and different skin color type I to VI.

By means of a Multi-technology Platform V30 by VIORA, multiple skin conditions can be managed.

I received a gift from Dr. Inna who is the clinical director of VIORA

8th Anniversary is coming.


夏天將到的時候,很多人有快要「露」多一點點的需要,才會有脫毛的念頭。 可是跑到醫美診所,要求永久脫毛療程時,才發現,是沒有「即食套餐」。想有最理想的效果,正確來說,「初秋」開始脫毛才是最佳時機。
激光或其他永久脫毛療程,可以持久地減少毛髮數量 (Hair Reduction)。一般來說,需要半年以上的時間, 接受4-6次的療程後,才可以做到明顯的效果。 整體毛色變淡,毛身變幼變軟,生長速度減慢,毛的數目顯著減少,直到接近「看不見」的效果。 但因應新陳代謝的快慢、種族、遺傳基因、治療範圍、膚色、毛髮的多寡,顏色及粗幼,治療次數可能會有所增減。
要注意,在接受脫毛療程時, 因毛髮生長速度減慢,毛囊出口有機會被表皮角質層細胞阻塞,引起毛囊發炎的機會。要給與充份的時間和處理,讓皮膚休息康復,變回本來的白滑!
愛美的您,不想有刺刺的感覺? 是時候為下個夏天作準備了!
