Las Vegas plastic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Khorsandi, offers the latest equipment to assist with skin and body cosmetic improvements. Understanding that medical technology changes overnight, he continuously invests in the best methods to offer effective, lasting results for his patients. From laser skin resurfacing and laser skin tightening, to various liposuction devices, Dr. Khorsandi provides patients with numerous options for treatment. Some of the technologies we have in-house are listed below.
Dr. Khorsandi uses VASERlipo for patients who have been diligent with exercise and diet, yet still struggle to attain the curves and slim figure they desire. For patients who need a little extra help, this technology offers a dramatic improvement without having to undergo major invasive surgery. VASERlipo uses ultrasound waves to break down fat cells in a precise, controlled minimally invasive manner. Most patients see visible results after just one procedure. VASERlipo does not have the downtime and discomfort that patients experience with traditional liposuction. In addition to creating slim results, it also smoothens skin in delicate areas such as the neck and arms.
Laser skin resurfacing is a simple, effective solution to attain clear and glowing skin. Patients battling minor skin imperfections and irregularities such as an uneven skin tone, blemishes, pigmentation and fine lines, may benefit from Clear & Brilliant. This laser skin resurfacing procedure offered by Dr. Khorsandi results in an improved skin tone appearance, a softer and smoother skin texture, a reduction of pores, and a healthy, vibrant look. Clear & Brilliant is not as aggressive as some of the other lasers on the market, such as Fraxel. It is a gentler treatment that provides immediate results without any downtime.
There are many effective liposuction methods on the market today, each with their own list of benefits. Body-Jet is one such liposuction that has gained popularity due to its less invasive nature. Body-Jet uses a water-jet technology to gently dislodge fat cells and remove them from the body. Along with traditional and laser liposuction, Dr. Khorsandi also offers this water-assisted liposuction approach for patients seeking slimming results without bruising, swelling and downtime. Body-Jet offers lasting results, however, patients who seek larger fat removal may still want to consider a more traditional liposuction approach.
MiraDry is a technology offered by Dr. Khorsandi to treat excessive sweating. Known as hyperhidrosis, excessive sweating can negatively impact the quality of life for an individual. The miraDry procedure for excessive sweating is a noninvasive treatment that uses a hand device to target sweat glands and a specialized energy pulse to eliminate them. Once the sweat glands are eliminated, they do not return. This reduces the amount of sweat that is produced in the underarm region. MiraDry is performed in our office and does not require any downtime.
Ultherapy is an advanced nonsurgical laser skin tightening treatment that uses ultrasound energy to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin. Once it penetrates these deep layers, it stimulates the production of collagen and allows the body’s own natural healing process to lift and tighten loose features without disturbing the surface. The result is a tighter skin appearance that is smoother and younger looking. Ultherapy is primarily used on the face and neck. It addresses the same facial structures of that of a surgical facelift, including the eyebrow, neck and under the chin. It is an in-office, outpatient procedure that is performed without the use of anesthesia.
Liposonix is another nonsurgical, noninvasive liposuction alternative. It is a revolutionary treatment offered by Dr. Khorsandi that uses high-intensity targeted ultrasound to treat and eliminate stubborn fat. It is used for individuals who are healthy and close to their ideal shape, but need a little assistance to get the final results they desire. During this treatment, the ultrasound energy destroys the fat cells beneath the surface layers of the skin. These destroyed cells are disposed by the body through the body’s natural healing and elimination process. This procedure does not damage the skin, and in a clinical study, a single treatment was shown to reduce the waistline by about 1 inch. Full results are typically seen in about 8-10 weeks.
Thermage is another advanced laser skin tightening procedure that uses radiofrequency (RF) technology to treat wrinkles and sagging skin. During this procedure, radio frequency heat waves are applied directly to the skin, which goes deep into the layers, promoting the production of collagen. This process initiates tightening of the superficial layers, effectively reducing moderate to severe wrinkles and other skin irregularities. Most patients see results within 24 hours of treatment, but because collagen continues to develop under the skin, the maximum results will show within a few weeks after treatment. After a Thermage treatment, patients will notice smoother skin and a more youthful, softer appearance.
