Overview

Las Vegas plastic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Khorsandi offers numerous nonsurgical approaches to combat the signs of aging. While surgery is reserved for patients with excess skin sagging and advanced signs of aging, there are a wide range of nonsurgical options that can produce outstanding outcomes for patients in their 40s, 50s, and older. Using advanced laser technology, nonsurgical skin tightening is a noninvasive cosmetic treatment that uses radiofrequency energy, ultrasound heat, and wavelengths of light to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lines, loose, and sagging skin. The lasers on the market today are so advanced that the deeper layers of the skin can now be reached, impacting the underlying tissues and initiating the production of collagen, which works to tighten, firm, and smooth the skin's surface.

Our Technologies

For those who are ready to make some changes to their skin but aren’t sure about having an invasive procedure, Dr. Khorsandi will consult with you and help determine which laser is best suitable for your specific condition. Our in-office laser treatments are both safe and effective to use for skin tightening, and comfortable to our patients while minimizing the risk of side effects. Each treatment is customized for the patient's specific needs so they will get their best results.

Dr. Khorsandi is proud to offer the following nonsurgical skin tightening laser treatment systems:

  • Thermage
  • EndyMed 3Deep
  • EndyMed Intensif RF Microneedling
  • Fractora
  • Venus Versa
  • Venus VivA
  • BodyFX
  • Ulthera

What to expect

Our treatment rooms at VIP Plastic Surgery are fully equipped, spacious, and private. We perform all of our laser treatments here and start by making our patients as comfortable as possible. With most of our laser treatments geared towards skin tightening, we usually apply a numbing ointment to the skin in order to minimize discomfort. While the procedure generally does not cause pain, some patients find the heat from the laser uncomfortable. After the treatment, the targeted area will appear red and swollen, but this will return to normal in a couple of days. It may take several sessions to attain the desired results, and the most optimal results will be seen within a couple of months as the collagen production under the skin begins to do its job. Patients will notice a tighter contour, a firmer skin surface, and a smoother complexion.

Skin Tightening FAQs

What Does RF Do?

Radiofrequency laser skin tightening is probably the most common method chosen with most patients. The technology behind nonsurgical skin tightening is radiofrequency waves applied directly to the areas that need improvement. First, a cooling technique is used. Following that, a heated pulse is sent to the targeted areas. This pulse actually causes changes in the collagen below the skin’s surface — and those changes improve the skin’s appearance and contribute to the removal of wrinkles. After the heat, another cooling pulse is applied. The changes in temperature work to stimulate the collagen and help keep patients comfortable during the session.

When Will I See Results?

Most patients see results within 24 hours of treatment, and the results are also long lasting, improving more over time. This is due to the stimulation of the collagen. Strengthening the collagen gives the skin a more youthful appearance. Because of this, patients will continue to see results for weeks and months after their treatment. After a Thermage treatment, patients will notice smoother skin and a more youthful, softer appearance.

How Long Does A Session Last?

Sessions vary according to what is being done. Typical facial sessions last up to 45 minutes. Body treatments can last up to 90 minutes. Areas that are targeted include the area around the eyes, the jawline, and the neckline. Those are often the regions that we see sagging and wrinkles.

Is It Only For The Face?

Nonsurgical skin tightening, depending on what laser is chosen, can be used on other parts of the body, not just the face. Body treatments can help reduce unsightly bulging, dimples, and wrinkles. We already know that the signs of aging aren’t just limited to the facial area, so why not treat the entire body? The process works the same regardless if it is performed on the face, tummy, or thighs.

Side Effects and Downtime?

Although all patients are different, the most common side effect is a slight redness to the skin within the treatment area. Because this is a noninvasive treatment, downtime is minimal. Most patients resume normal activity directly following treatment.
