Thermage Procedure – RF Skin Tightening – Las Vegas, NV

48 Procedures ( View All )

Overview

Las Vegas plastic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Khorsandi, offers numerous nonsurgical approaches to combat the signs of aging. Radiofrequency (RF) skin rejuvenation is an innovation that is now commonly used in the field of plastic surgery. It is a noninvasive cosmetic treatment that uses a laser to treat wrinkles and sagging skin. RF skin rejuvenation (also known as skin tightening) can reach deeper layers of the skin. Once the sound waves impact the underlying tissues, it initiates tightening of the superficial layers, and promotes collagen growth. This is especially effective in reducing moderate to severe wrinkles and other skin irregularities.

Introducing Thermage

For those who are ready to make some changes to their skin but aren’t sure about having an invasive procedure, Thermage may be just the option. Dr. Khorsandi offers Thermage and performs this treatment in-office. Thermage uses radiofrequency energy waves to target problem areas on the body and the face. It can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and saggy skin. It is a noninvasive procedure that has very little downtime afterwards, so patients can resume their busy schedules without missing a beat.

Thermage FAQs

What Does Thermage Do?

The technology behind Thermage 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?

Thermage 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.
