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.
"At first, I was hesitant and nervous about the experience but after speaking to the practice manager, Catherine, on the phone, I became extremely interested and decided to come in for a consultation. The doctor ended up doing a clear and brilliant laser treatment on my skin and I noticed immediate results. My skin is so much brighter and softer in just one treatment; I cannot wait until my second treatment in two weeks. After clear and brilliant, I decided to do Thermage Skin Tightening for my face. This treatment is amazing. I noticed my skin is tighter and lifted as the treatment is being performed. My family and friends noticed the changes immediately. Dr. K is a skillful plastic surgeon and I recommend him to everyone. His staff made me feel so comfortable throughout this entire experience and I cannot wait for more treatments soon. Catherine is great, she will give you her cell phone so you can contact her anytime."- K. T. / RealSelf / Aug 16, 2013
"Leann Canada -Las Vegas, NV - I was extremely pleased with the whole process. Dr. Khorsandi was very thorough in explaining the entire procedure in detail. I received excellent care, before, during and following the procedure. This was my first experience with any procedure so I was a bit nervous. Dr. Khorsandi and his assistant knowledge and warmth put me at ease. I would highly recommend them to anyone I know. I believe they are truly concerned for your health and a positive outcome for you. - - The better looking give me more confident when I'm facing the outside world, the procedure I got included Thermage neck and face, radiesse, clear and brilliant were the right thing I had done for myself. I look good, feel good and very happy with the result I had got. The wrinkle under my eyes and both side of my mouth were gone, the dark spots on my cheek were fade away give me a bright and smooth skin. I'm very happy."- L. / RealSelf / Dec 23, 2013
"Thermage - Henderson, NV - Dr. Khorsandi is the best doctor ever! I first came across him when I had filler that needed to be corrected, and the original doctor wasn't going to be able to fit me in for several weeks. He saw me right away. Since then he has been really patient doing a lot of fillers and thermage for my skin. He always listens to my concerns and tells me honestly what is best. He never tries to recommend other unrelated procedures that most doctors I have gone to in the past have. Also when ever I have questions or concerns, Catherine is always available and happy to answer. I highly recommend them for any procedure you may be interested in :). - - I have a bit of loose skin around my eyes and rather than doing an eye lift the doctor recommended this procedure. He said this would be a great way to help without needing to take time off to heal from the surgery. Also I there would be no incisions. So I went ahead and did it. I will admit at times the procedure was a little uncomfortable, but the Dr. does everything to make it as comfortable as possible. Once the procedure was done I already saw some improvement, esp in the neck area( I went ahead and did this area too). Each week you see a little more improvement. My skin is getting smoother and tighter. I think this is a great procedure to have if you are looking for something with out the downtime like you would have from surgery. Also you gradually look better week by week without someone knowing you had something done."- A. / RealSelf / Nov 17, 2014

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.

What Does Thermage Do?@headingTag>
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?@headingTag>
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?@headingTag>
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?@headingTag>
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?@headingTag>
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.
