"I came in from out of state to have my procedures done with Dr. Virden. He is extremely personable, knowledgeable and confident in what he does. On the day of my pre-op, as I was flying into Reno, my flights were diverted and delayed and I didn't get in until late. Dr, Virden went above and beyond to meet with me outside of normal office hours to make sure I was ready and confident for surgery the next morning. He is caring and attentive and checked in on me over the weekend after the surgery. I'm extremely happy with my results. My breasts look amazing and my tummy flat! I have had minimal pain after surgery and I attribute that to having an extremely skilled surgeon. I highly recommend Dr. Virden!"- Google User / Google / Nov 22, 2016

During a consultation, a medical professional will help determine if laser skin tightening is right for you in order to achieve your goals. The ideal candidates for laser skin tightening:

What to Expect
Prior to treatment, the skin is properly prepped and a protective gel is applied to the skin. The SkinTyte wand will be placed on the skin to heat up the deep layers through highly advanced radio wave technology. There is no pain and discomfort and patients will simply feel a warm sensation. The radio frequency heats up the collagen to cause skin to become firmer and tighter. In addition, Sciton SkinTyte system stimulates the skin’s natural production of collagen to continuously make the skin improve over time. Treatment typically takes less than one hour.
After treatment, the skin might be slightly red or swollen, which should resolve in a few hours. With no downtime, patients can return to their normal activities immediately. Many patients report an improved appearance immediately after treatment with smoother, younger-looking, firmer skin. Over time, the skin will continue to improve since the skin’s collagen has been stimulated. For maximum benefits, most patients need 3 – 6 treatments.
