Las Vegas plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi offers numerous laser treatments to address wrinkled, aging skin. One of his most popular treatments is radiofrequency skin tightening using the Thermage laser system by Solta Medical. A Thermage treatment can soften fine lines, smooth wrinkles, and tighten the skin for gradual improvements that result in taut, youthful skin. Used on both the face and body, Thermage implements radiofrequency energy to stimulate the body’s production of collagen and increase the skin’s overall thickness. The procedure does not require anesthesia or sutures, nor does it result in any major downtime. We invite you to call VIP Plastic Surgery to learn more about this innovative laser system, as well as discover the other nonsurgical treatments we offer to fight aging skin and produce a more youthful appearance.
"Had a hair transplant one year ago, and can honestly say it is the best thing I have ever done for myself. Took me many years to take the plunge, but I am so glad that I did."- J.S. / Google / Jul 04, 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
"Dr. Khorsandi preformed a BA on me 2 years ago. I'm absolutely content with my decision and the sum of money I spent. His staff is extremely welcoming. I would say his bedside manner is very good. I did not experience much discomfort the days following my surgery. I have very natural results. People are always very surprised when I reveal to them I've had a BA."- J.C. / Yelp / Jun 28, 2019
"I absolutely love Dr. K and his staff. He is honest, knows his stuff, and does an AMAZING job. He talks to you like you're a human and makes every interaction with you personable. He is real, which is what I love. During my consultation, I was looking at getting a lift and implants. Instead of just taking the extra money, Dr. K told me that I didn't need to get a lift at this time. Any other doctor I saw prior to him were all for it because it gives them more money, but Dr. K gave me his honest and expert opinion. I got my breast augmentation done August 2018 (without lift), and one of my implants didn't drop. Dr. K helped give me different ways of trying to get it to drop prior to having to go through surgery again, but unfortunately, my body is just stubborn. Dr. K ended up doing the surgery to pull down the implant April 2019 (which he didn't even charge for), and they look AMAZING! This is the best investment I have made and I am so glad that I went with Dr. K. I highly recommend using him!"- K.S. / Yelp / Jun 24, 2019
"Getting a hair transplant has been one of the greatest things I’ve ever done!!! I’ve been worried about my hair since age 20. I am now 40 and never ever think about it anymore. It’s been the greatest gift I’ve ever given myself. Sure you can buy a yourself a watch or a car but none of those will be staring back at you in the mirror every single day like a full head of hair! I thought about it for years and picking up the phone to make the appointment was probably the hardest part of the whole process. After I hung up that call I felt a rush go thru my entire body, “am I really going to have a full head of hair?”When I arrived in Vegas I was greeted by Lee (who is one of the all time positive guys I’ve ever met, a real gem!) He met me in the morning at my hotel and talked me thru the entire day! It was a wonderful to have someone with me since I had traveled alone....a personal concierge if you will. This seems to be a recurring theme at VIP Plastic Surgery, the personal touch. We are far to used to feeling like a number in this fast paced world and it was nice to feel that the entire office was catering to only me! Lee was with me the entire day, helped with my prescriptions, and generally kept the mood light throughout the process! I had my consultation with Dr Khorsandi, what an impressive guy! It was obvious that he was born to do this work. He comes from a family of doctors and it shows in his patience and understanding. We laughed like we had known each other our whole lives! Ive never seen somebody mix east coast sensibilities with west coast asthetic! This guy is the real deal.The surgery itself was pretty uneventful surprisingly! The only irritation I felt was from the first needle to numb the area. After that I didn’t feel a thing! What else could you ask for! ? After the surgery I went back to my hotel and fell asleep. No agony, no pain.....just a wonderful night in a quiet hotel room! I said my goodbyes and flew home a few days later.It’s now been a year since the surgery and literally have a full head of hair. Not some coverage, A FULL HEAD! I’m able to exercise and live life without any restrictions! If you would’ve told me a few years ago that this was possible I would not have believed you, DR KHORSANDI IS A MIRACLE WORKER! Thank you for allowing me to live my life the way I always wanted to! Seriously, pick up the phone and give VIP Plastic Surgery a call. They are solid people top to bottom, a class organization!"- S.B. / Google / May 14, 2019
Thermage skin rejuvenation heats the skin to the optimum temperature to stimulate the production of collagen. Prior to undergoing a Thermage treatment, we will mark the targeted areas, apply a cool gel to the surface of the skin, and gently roll the skin with a small circular handpiece that emits radiofrequency waves. Thermage skin rejuvenation can be used on the face, neck, stomach, upper inner arms, legs, thighs, and buttocks. In areas such as the legs, the treatment is performed to treat cellulite imperfections, while loose skin and surface wrinkles are targeted in the facial regions.
What To Expect
Thermage skin treatment sessions are performed directly inside our plastic surgery center at VIP Plastic Surgery. There is minimal to no discomfort throughout the procedure. In most cases, the patient will feel the skin heating and then cooling. Although redness and minor tingling in the treated areas are common, patients undergoing this treatment can resume normal activity quickly. Results start appearing within a few hours of treatment and the full effect is usually revealed in a couple of months, and can be long-lasting as long as the patient adheres to a healthy lifestyle and skin routine.
Plan Your Procedure
- Procedure Recovery Location
Thermage skin rejuvenation is a procedure that improves loose skin and wrinkles. It is not a treatment for weight loss, and does not necessarily affect the texture or surface irregularities like pigmentation, discoloration or age spots. Individuals who are not comfortable with a surgical procedure such as a facelift but still hope to slow down the visible signs of aging, may likely benefit from this technique. Patients with excessive loose and sagging skin will be better candidates for a body contouring surgical procedure.
How Long do the Results Last?
The results following Thermage skin rejuvenation can last up to 2 years. Like many other non-invasive anti-aging skin treatments, Thermage treatments can be repeated per your practitioner’s discretion. Due to reasons like this, Thermage has become a popular choice among both patients and cosmetic surgeons.
How Many Treatments?
This depends on the condition of your skin, the results you wish to attain, age and the size of the area being treated. In general, it could take as few as 4 – 6 treatments for the face and upward of 10 – 15 treatments for the body. For optimal results, ongoing maintenance sessions are recommended.
Isn’t This Similar to a Lift?
While it is sometimes touted as a liquid facelift, the honest answer is no. While Thermage treatments stimulate collagen and tightens underlying structures, which result in a firmer skin appearance, a surgical facelift will produce a more dramatic effect. Patients may want to consider a treatment such as Thermage skin rejuvenation prior to undergoing a surgical procedure.
