Las Vegas plastic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Khorsandi, offers patients a nonsurgical approach for skin tightening. Using the body's own regenerative response to ultrasound laser stimulation, Ultherapy is a procedure that gently and gradually lifts the skin on delicate areas of the body by targeting the deeper layers of tissue. Dr. Khorsandi uses Ultherapy to lift the eyebrow, to treat loose skin under the chin and on the neck, and to smooth lines and wrinkles on the chest area of a woman (her décolletage). During an Ultherapy treatment, the laser stimulates the production of collagen. The result after several months, is skin that is more supple and firmer.

"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
"It is very clear( by all the pictures and reviews) that Dr Khorsandi is an excellent plastic surgeon. But what is not as well known, is that Dr Khorsandi also is a migraine and headache doctor. My husband has been experiencing debilitating migraines for the past two years, that have seriously affected both his running a construction company and his quality of life. Any number of things things could bring one on: lights, noise, working out, turning his head to quickly etc. He literally never went more than two days without experiencing a migraine in the past two years. He had to wear sunglasses and a ball cap, all day and all night, everyday and night. Meetings, vacations, dinners, even Dr. appointments and Golden Knights hockey games have been canceled. He was a mess and totally exhausted all the time. Dr. Khorsandi treated my husband one month ago. My husband isn't wearing the sunglasses and ball cap 24/7 anymore.We have not had to cancel any appointments or meetings. He even went to San Francisco with me to our daughters wedding dress fitting. He is back at work full time and is not experiencing the total exhaustion. He has a quality of life now that he hasn't had for two years. Dr. Khorsandi has given my husband and our family back our life. I cannot tell you how thankful we are. Plus when I decide to get plastic surgery, you know I'm going to Dr. Khorsandi."- S.M. / Yelp / Jun 06, 2018
"One of the best rhinoplasty surgeons in the US - Dr. Khorsandi is without a doubt one of the best rhinoplasty surgeons in America. he was able to correct my nose after one botched rhinoplasty, another poor revision into a beautiful, natural, harmonious, scar free and breathable nose. He is a master and an expert. Do not try to save money or stay local - find THE BEST rhinoplasty doctor only or you will end up like me on a multiyear fixing..."- T. / RealSelf / May 29, 2018
Ultherapy is an outpatient procedure that may be performed with topical anesthesia to ease mild warming and prickling sensations. It can be done in a doctor’s clinic and doesn’t last longer than 30 minutes. A handpiece is guided around the areas to be treated as ultrasound waves are emitted. These trigger collagen development, which will gradually result in healthier skin. There will be no pain, and discomfort is limited compared to other laser treatments. In some cases, several treatments may be required for optimal results.
What To Expect
There is a noticeable improvement with the skin’s appearance right after treatment. The actual results will be gradual as collagen multiplies, enhancing the skin structure. Optimal results are evident around the third month. There may be slight redness or swelling after treatment which subsides after a few hours. The patient will experience no downtime, and will be able to go back to normal activities immediately. It is important to set realistic expectations with this approach as it cannot produce the same results as a surgical procedure.
The average cost for a full face treatment is around $3,000. Smaller areas usually cost less. Brows average around $1,500 while lower or mid-face sections run around $2,000. Costs can increase when it comes to the number of treatments needed or if a combination of areas are performed on. Patients should understand several treatments might be required.
Who Should Get It?
Individuals who are averse to surgical cosmetic procedures can benefit the most with Ultherapy. The results will be gradual, but the quality of improvement is significant as the healing starts within the skin. It is the perfect treatment for those who still have a good skin tone but begin to see signs of skin laxity. Most commonly, those who are aged 30 to 40 seek this treatment to slow down aging effects.
Long Term Results?
Immediate improvement can be readily seen right after treatment; however, optimal results become more noticeable after a few months. The treatment is safe to be repeated especially after 1 year as the positive effects subside.
The number of sessions depends on the patient’s skin condition and aesthetic goals. Most patients who still have a good skin tone can have significant results with a single treatment. For those who show more symptoms of skin aging, several treatments may be needed to produce the wanted results.
