As we age, the body's collagen production and elastin begin to decrease, which causes the loose, wrinkled skin that can be associated with getting older. Patients may notice that they have gradually developed more facial lines, a double chin, jowls, and hanging skin around their neck. FaceTite is a system designed to address all of these issues in a minimally invasive way, using radio frequency-assisted lipolysis. The heat from the energy is able to dislodge fat cells while simultaneously making the skin contract for a tighter, more youthful appearance. VIP Plastic Surgery, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi, offers this innovative treatment as an alternative to invasive, surgical procedures such as a facelift or neck lift. We encourage both men and women in the Las Vegas, NV area to contact our office today to learn more about FaceTite.

"So I am updating my review and I'm still giving everyone a 5+ star rating! I did the fraxel on Monday and it's Sunday evening and yes I am still pink but the results are amazing! My hyper pigmentation and most of my texture is gone! I also received a chin implant with Dr K on Wednesday so I'm still swollen with that but I know I'm going to love the result of that as well! Again I need to give a shout put to Mel for being a beast with a laser! She is my go to when it comes to my aesthetic needs and also Dr K for giving me confidence with my profile. I just wish the swelling would go down faster! lol damn lack of patience. Well I now have a laundry list of other things I would like to tweak. And I know VIP is the place I can trust and know I'll get the best work done!"- V.B. / Yelp / Feb 18, 2017
"Dr. Khorsandi and his staff are terrific! Dr. Khorsandi even came in during his weekend to see me for an emergency visit. (Which ended up not being as "emergency" as I thought.) He is professional, honest, and very talented at what he does. He is the best plastic surgeon. ** I will say my first visit and consultation I did wait almost 2.5 hrs before seeing the doctor due to their schedule getting behind. At the time I found it frustrating but now I can see how that can happen there. He takes one on one time with each patient, answers all questions, and his staff takes over with ease and knowledge of what is going on as well. I will gladly wait as long as needed to get that kind of attention and detail from Dr. Khorsandi. (I also signed up for my procedure that day and paid, that's how wonderful this office is!)"- C.K. / Google / Feb 12, 2018
"What an amazing facility. I was not sure what to expect coming here. I am new to Vegas and am used to some of the best offices and dr.'s coming from Beverly Hills. So Needless to say I was a bit skeptical before I arrived. I had some body fat removed and I was blown away at the results! Sarah was absolutely great, she was very professional and gave me detailed instructions as to what to expect moving forward and she was spot on. I will be back soon."- R.S. / Yelp / Feb 11, 2018
"Rhinoplasty review: I'm 25 years old male with a typical Italian nose. I'm about one month post-op and I honestly couldn't be more happier with the results. Dr. Khorsandi did such a good job!!!! I had such high expectations of the surgery and the results. I was expecting to find a flaw or something off with my nose after the surgery, but I can truly say it is PERFECT!!!! My nose is so perfect its almost unbelievable. I went to Dr. Khorsandi because he was the only plastic surgeon in Las Vegas to not have bad review's on rhinoplasty's and now I know why. He is the best plastic surgeon to go to if you want a beautiful perfect nose. Dr. Khorsandi is one of the BEST plastic surgeons in my opinion!!!!"- M.V. / Yelp / Feb 02, 2018
FaceTite will be most effective in treating smaller areas of both the face and body such as the chin/neck, lower eyes, arms, breasts, and inner thighs. Patients will be the most ideal candidate for receiving this treatment if they:
- Have loose, or droopy skin on their face/neck
- Do not require excessive fat removal
- Wish to avoid surgical operations
- Desire long-term, natural results
- Are not currently pregnant
- Have not had dermal fillers injected for at least 6 – 8 weeks
During this procedure, a small cannula is inserted underneath the skin of the area(s) being treated. Once inserted, our surgeon can control the temperature and target the loose skin as well as fat deposits. The heat emitted from the radio frequency energy will cause the collagen to ignite and the skin to tighten. The cannula is constantly monitored through an internal and external device to ensure that the temperature is always at a safe level.
Only a local anesthetic is required to perform FaceTite, and patients should experience minimal discomfort. They will be sent home with a compression garment to rest for a few hours but can typically resume normal activities the same day. Strenuous activity, like exercise, should be avoided for 1 – 2 weeks. Since there are no large incisions being made, patients should not experience scarring after their procedure if they follow all of the proper recovery instructions. There may be some swelling and redness in the treated areas for around three days following the procedure, but this should subside as the skin heals.
Patients will generally see some visible results right after their FaceTite treatment. However, since the procedure involves stimulating the collagen process, they will see more gradual improvements for around 3 – 8 weeks following the treatment.
How Many Sessions?
This will vary case by case. However, in general, only one session should be needed to produce the desired results. It is possible for patients to undergo more treatments if recommended by our surgeon.
Better Than Surgical Lifting?
While surgical lifting procedures are generally used to produce more dramatic and drastic results, FaceTite is still effective in treating loose skin in smaller, more concentrated areas. Some of the benefits having this treatment over a facelift or neck lift may be:
- Controlled, precise skin tightening
- Local anesthesia versus general anesthesia
- No large incisions, which helps to eliminate scarring and potential risks
- A great reduction in downtime following the procedure
Since the procedure involves creating new collagen in the body, the results should be long standing. It is possible, however, for natural signs of aging to still progress and weight gain to alter the results.
