Las Vegas plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi uses a unique approach with each patient, offering a number of nonsurgical cosmetic treatments to reach their personal aesthetic goals. A newer procedure that creates gorgeous results is radiofreqency microneedling. Radiofrequency laser treatments have been around for many years and are well-known in the cosmetic industry for skin tightening. This particular type of laser treatment uses heat to promote the production of collagen in the deeper layers of the underlying skin to create a tighter, smoother surface. Now, this treatment can be combined with microneedling to optimize the results. Dr. Khorsandi brings a new advancement to his Las Vegas patients that is both innovating and exciting, and he is proud to offer EndyMed Intensif RF Microneedling — a combination of two outstanding treatments to produce firmer skin, a smoother texture, and a glowing complexion.
Radiofrequency Skin Tightening and Microneedling
Microneedling uses a tool with tiny needles on the end that is rolled gently against the skin to puncture and create micro-injuries in order to "disrupt" the cells and produce collagen. Some also refer to this as collagen induction therapy. As the skin heals, new skin forms leaving the top layer feeling and looking smoother, brighter, and rejuvenated. While this procedure is commonly used alone, combining this advanced technique with radiofrequency laser technology has allowed practitioners to optimize the results for their patients.
The process is quite simple. EndyMed's handheld device, which emits radiofrequency heat, works by delivering short pulses of RF energy through an array of 25 sterilized, gold-plated micro-needles. The energy is transmitted through the needles, which simultaneously punctures the skin, and circles back to the electrode sitting on the surface layer of the skin. The RF energy heats at depths that provide cumulative and ongoing benefits. Even better, the Intensif system gives Dr. Khorsandi flexible control over needle depth, which changes the course of the treatment on the spot, providing personalized, maximal results for each patient regardless skin condition, skin type, or skin color. In other words, the system’s one-touch adjustment capability creates an incredibly precise delivery of heat to tissue levels where it is needed.
"Dr. Khorsandi and his staff are outstanding!!! I am never compelled to write a review for anyone or any service, but for Dr. Khorsandi I had to make an exception because he and his staff are just that great!! I am a perfectionist so prior to selecting a surgeon to work on me, I did a ton of research and I kept coming back to to Dr. khorsandi. After our first meeting I knew he was the one. He immediately put me at ease, answered all my questions, phone calls, and just had this way about him. When he worked on me the first time (rhinoplasty and revision BA), I was amazed at his skill and talent for creating a masterpiece. I have since returned to him two more times for other surgeries. His incisions are artwork and heal with minimal scarring. I ONLY trust Dr. Khorsandi, Catherine and his phenomenal team. I recommended him to several friends and family. He truly cares about you, and cares Immensely about delivering the best work every time. I feel so at home every time I go to his state-of-the art facility. I'm so grateful I found the best in Vegas"- J.S. / Yelp / Sep 13, 2018
"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
"So Happy with my Results! - Having my rhinoplasty/septoplasty done by Dr. Khorsandi was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

It took me 10 years and tons of research and consultation appointments to make this decision. I knew instantly that Dr. Khorsandi was the one aft..."- M. / RealSelf / Sep 12, 2018

"Best Experience with Rhino/septoplasty - I had a septo/rhinoplasty and turbinate reduction in July and I am one month out healing and feeling great! After having a deviated septum my entire life, I am amazed at my results cosmetically and most importantly I can breathe!! I only wish I would have done this way sooner. Dr. Khorsandi is, hands down, the best! I did a ton of research before deciding on a surgeon and i am so happy about..."- A. / RealSelf / Aug 25, 2018
Benefits of RF Microneedling
The EndyMed Intensif system produces radiant skin without surgery, without downtime, and is great for the cheeks, neck, upper and lower eyelid, mouth, and smile lines. The laser's surface probe has a sensor which safely and effectively monitors the skin temperature so it remains within safe parameters. While this may sound similar to fractional laser treatments, it is not considered fractional because the energy remains between the needle tip and the skin's surface. With RF microneedling, you are getting both the benefit of the laser heat as well as the skin disruption for overall surface rejuvenation, underlying collagen growth, and ongoing production.
If you are 40 years of age or older and are starting to notice smile lines, age spots, discoloration, and other skin irregularities that come with age and sun exposure, RF microneedling may be the right treatment for you. Using RF energy delivered through tiny pins, it has been proven to:
- Tighten the skin, producing a more refreshed appearance
- Improve skin texture, tone, and pigment
- Treat skin irregularities such as blood vessels and discoloration
- Minimize the appearance of age spots and sun damage
- Improve acne scars and other forms of scarring
- Rejuvenate the skin for a younger, glowing look
What to Exect
RF microneedling treatments take place inside our plastic surgery office using a numbing cream to help reduce discomfort. During your appointment, you will lay comfortably in our treatment chair where our trained aesthetician will clean and prep the area. The handheld device will glide over the desired area repeating the process until the desired results have been reached. This treatment will stimulate the body's natural healing process and boost collagen production to reveal a refreshed appearance. The nonsurgical skin tightening procedure is customized to fit your skin condition and type, so each patient will experience a different length of treatment. Little to no downtime is expected, with the slight redness and swelling fading within 48 hours.
