What is RF Microneedling?
Las Vegas, NV 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 (RF) microneedling. RF treatments have been around for many years and are well-known in the cosmetic industry for skin tightening. This particular type of RF 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. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi offers RF microneedling to his Las Vegas, NV patients with the EndyMed Intensif and InMode Morpheus8. RF microneedling technologies Both of these outstanding treatments work to produce firmer skin, a smoother texture, and a glowing complexion.
THe RF Microneedling Process
RF 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 RF technology has allowed practitioners to optimize the results for their patients.
The process is quite simple. The handheld device, which emits RF 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 treatment offers maximal results for each patient regardless of skin condition, skin type, or skin color. In other words, RF microneedling has a one-touch adjustment capability that creates an incredibly precise delivery of heat to the tissue levels where it is needed.
VIP Plastic Surgery Reviews
Amazing NeckTite and Morpheus8! - I was referred to Dr Khorsandi by a friend/doctor in New York City who had been by Dr K in this proceedure.I made an appt. for botox and general care but Dr K was kindly direct about the options he recommended for me.I had been considering the NeckTite procedure for a while due to sagging/fat neck.He performed the procedure a couple of weeks later which incorporated Morpheus8 and Lipo.His office manager Patricia was really helpful scheduling and totally transparent about the way my surgery would be billed.From that moment I never thought twice about the procedure. It took about an hour under twilight sedation and I was out and about within a week,(I always have happened to be a heavy bruiser).I couldn’t be more thrilled with the result.Not only have I lost the double chin, I have jawline contour of my 30’s.
I have been going to VIP Plastic Surgery now for about four years. At first I just started getting my lips filled with Juvéderm and I loved the outcome. They looked so natural and I was so happy! Dr. Khorsandi is such a pleasure to be around and he is such an amazing doctor I would never go anywhere else. Not only do I feel welcome every time I go in but they take such good care of me. I am now 31 and have started to see a slight change in my face and some minor cellulite. So I decided to go see Melanie who is one of the aestheticians there. I had some concerns about some cellulite under my butt area on my thighs. I went in and had a consultation with her about the Body FX. She told me it was a non-invasive procedure and it pretty much just melted your fat and made your skin tighter and more firm. So I decided to try the procedure out. Not only did I love the procedure but Melanie was such a professional and did such a wonderful job that I started asking about the different kind of facials and non invasive treatments they had for my under eye and face. After having a consultation with both Melanie and Dr. Khorsandi we agreed that the Morpheus which is a micro needling procedure for my under eye would help tighten and smooth my under eyes so I wouldn’t have to get fillers. I agreed to the three treatments. The package was a good deal (in my eyes to be honest) other places charge way more. The treatment hurt like hell but I was very pleased with the aftermath. After doing the Morpheus Micro Needling I decided to do a vampire facial, which I literally got today LOL I heard such good things about it and they offer such great packages that I decided what the hell. It didn’t hurt half as bad as The Morpheus, so I was totally happy about that and I can’t wait to see the results. Every time I have appointment with Melanie I look forward to seeing her. She does such a wonderful job at everything she does for me and I wouldn’t dream about seeing anyone else. Not only do I look at her as my talented aesthetician that makes me feel beautiful, but as a friend that I can laugh and feel comfortable with. It’s such a crazy feeling to see yourself aging and to start noticing things that you don’t really like or that you want to change about your body and VIP Plastic Surgery has not only made me feel so comfortable about going in and talking about my issues but they do such a great job with every procedure I’ve had done that not only will I go there for everything in the future but I feel like family when I’m there. Thank you Dr. Khorsandi and Melanie for always making me feel so special and beautiful

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 device's surface probe has a sensor that safely and effectively monitors the skin temperature so it remains within safe parameters. While this may sound similar to fractional 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 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
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.
