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 radiofrequency 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 as well as the InMode Morpheus8. Both of these outstanding treatments work to produce firmer skin, a smoother texture, and a glowing complexion.
About RF Microneedling
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. The handheld device, which emits radiofrequency heat, works by delivering short pulses of RF energy through an array of sterilized micro-needles. These needles go into the skin to "disrupt and remodel" the fibrous tissue, which promotes the induction of collagen. Simultaneously, the RF energy is transmitted through the needles, which 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, depending on the patient, the condition of his or her skin, and what is being addressed, Dr. Khorsandi has flexible control over needle depth, heat, and coverage, which changes the course of each treatment. This personalized laser treatment offers maximal results for each patient regardless of skin condition, skin type, or skin color. In other words, RF microneedling's one-touch adjustment capability creates an incredibly precise delivery of heat to tissue levels where it is needed.
"My recent experience at VIP Plastic Surgery was nothing short of amazing! I came in and saw Sarah for laser treatment and couldn't have been happier with our interaction. She was super professional, kind and very knowledgeable. She explained the treatment to me with a ton of detail and continually checked in with me during the procedure so I knew exactly what she was doing the whole time. She made me feel very comfortable and definitely eased my nerves. VIP is lucky to have such a valuable asset with Sarah and I will be coming back to see her as much as I can afford."- C.C. / Yelp / Mar 11, 2019
"Dr. Khorsandi is a miracle worker! I live in California and went to Las Vegas to see him and I'm so happy I did. My lips look amazing! His whole staff is great, especially his wife Catherine who is so knowledgeable and helpful. I look forward to trying out their skin treatments next. Thank you VIP Plastic Surgery for an amazing experience!"- J.P. / Yelp / Mar 09, 2019
"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

Benefits of RF Microneedling
The RF microneedling 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. This treatment 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.
