"Two weeks ago I went in for a PRP facial to correct some discoloration from acne scars, and I have to say, I am loving the results! Day 1 my skin felt like it was on fire, but by day 3, the redness and puffiness had gone down and revealed shocking results. Not only did the discoloration fade dramatically, but my skin felt soft and had this crazy glow. It was mentioned that I'll continue to see results over the next six months, so I'll be back to give a more in-depth review then.Dr. Khorsandi and his team are simply amazing and I encourage everyone to pay them a visit."- T.R. / Yelp / Apr 26, 2018

"Who doesn't want to age like avocados? Me! Who wants to be forever young? Me!As we get age, our skin starts to change. It is important to take care of our skin in order to keep the skin looking young and healthy. I started getting PRP/vampire facials at VIP Plastic Surgery and do not regret it at all! For those of you who don't know what it is, it's basically using your own blood to rejuvenate your skin with micro-needling. Your blood has WBCs (white blood cells) which has antibodies in it that fight off infection and get rid of toxins. It helps with getting rid of acne too and some scars. For me I got about 2-3 treatments in order to see results. I always get compliments on my skin and my skin definitely feels good after getting this facial. Both Melanie and Sarah are amazing at their job. They are very knowledgeable when it comes to taking care of the skin. The staff are amazing as well. Catherine and Patricia are wonderful! They made sure to answer any questions I had and made sure what treatment would be best for my skin. Dr. Khorsandi is great too! He did my lips! They all definitely made me feel like a VIP patient and are people I trust. The wait time is long but worth it. I would not go to a non-busy place especially if I'm getting something done for my face. Obviously they are good if they are busy. I also picked up some skin care stuff. My favorite is the elastiderm eye cream (I am a nurse and work nights, my under eyes feel rejuvenated every time I use this product). I use to breakout a lot until I started using the SkinMedica Acne kit. It works wonders! I love it! I also have oily skin and never used moisturizer until I found the GloTherapeutics oil free moisturizer! Especially living in the desert, it can still be drying for my oily skin. This moisturizer helps with hydrating my skin! It is also important to use sunscreen especially living in a sunny place like Vegas. I never really used sunscreen because I hated the smell and how oily it made my skin look until I picked up the Obagi matte sunscreen SPF 50 at VIP. This stuff is amazing! The texture feels good on my face leaving my face feeling matte. I recommended VIP Plastic Surgery to all of my friends and they were not disappointed. My overall experience was fantastic!"- Q.N. / Google / Jul 20, 2018
"This is my go to spot! Dr. K is a very talented and knowledgeable man and I feel very confident relying on him for my fillers and Botox. I am looking into trying some of their facial and laser services they also offer :-)"- O.R. / Yelp / Nov 29, 2018
"How to Look 20 Years Younger - I have never been so happy with my results!! I went in just for a consult because I felt like my face was starting to have a lot of wrinkles and my face was hollowing out due to my age. Dr. Khorsandi recommended a PRP facial (also known as vampire facial), some botox and fillers for me. I came in for a PRP facial and was a little nervous about it. Melanie, my esthetician reassured me and made..."- F. / RealSelf / Jan 24, 2019
Facial Ideal Candidates
Facials at VIP Plastic Surgery are a great skin rejuvenation treatment for all ages and skin types since it is adjusted to each person's concerns and goals. Typically, facials are created to correct signs of aging (fine lines and dryness), improve sun-damaged skin (dark spots, uneven tone, and texture), deep clean to help clogged pores and acne, and brighten dull and sallow skin. Facials can be performed to help adults and teens with chronic conditions like acne outbreaks, sensitive skin, and rosacea. The effects of a facial can be enhanced with another treatment such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, or an injectable for an all-around radiant glow.
Facial Procedure Technique
After your consultation to select your custom treatment based on your skin type and concerns, you will relax in one of our private treatment rooms as your facial begins. Your facial process will be personalized, but most treatments will start with a deep cleansing to eliminate any dirt, oil, makeup, and lotions. After cleaning the skin, steam is used to open clogged pores so blackheads and whiteheads can be extracted easily. This is often followed by exfoliation, either manually or with an added treatment (microdermabrasion or chemical peel). A mask or serum will be massaged in for deep nourishment. To end the treatment, an SPF moisturizer will be applied to protect the skin from environmental damage after the treatment.
What to Expect with Facial
Following your facial treatment, you may notice some redness and irritation but this should subside naturally within 24 hours. Many patients will see visible improvements in the appearance and feel of their skin immediately after their treatment. To extend the results of your professional facial, talk to one of our experienced team members for help creating a home skincare program and how often you can have a facial treatment at VIP Plastic Surgery.
