Age can deactivate certain genes in our skin that are responsible for its youthful glow, contributing to discoloration, fine lines, and other signs of aging. Now, there is a way to turn those genes back on with a completely noninvasive procedure. Dr. Charles P. Virden, a board-certified plastic surgeon, offers broadband light skin care treatments for Reno patients with the highly advanced Sciton Forever Young BBL device. This innovative technology sets new standards for skin conditions associated with aging, active lifestyles, and sun damage. The light energy delivered by the broadband light (BBL) will gently heat the upper layers of the skin to will stimulate the skin cells, which will regenerate new collagen. These treatments can give patients a more even skin tone, reducing not just the signs of aging, but also freckles and dark spots. Schedule a consultation at the office of Charles P. Virden, MD in Reno, Nevada to learn more about laser skin rejuvenation.
"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
"I went to see Dr Virden over work that needed to be redone by another surgeon and I was uncomfortable nervous scared because of the previous treatment. Dr virden explained to me exactly what needed to be done how it would be fixed,h was very knowledgeable, personable, and compassionate. He had a true concern for what was going on with me and how to fix it. I now feel very comfortable having the work fixed by Dr. Virden."- L.D. / Google / May 16, 2019

Description: Personable, kind, honest and incredibly talented. It takes an all star team to support a doctor to be an award-winning plastic surgeon. You’ll experience dealing with an efficient and very sweet, professional staff at Dr. Virden’s office who cares about you and about making your cosmetic surgery experience amazing- and even exciting! Calls and emails are immediately answered or promptly returned. The day prior to surgery, I was sent home with a beautifully bound pre and postoperative reference guide that was customized specifically for me and the procedures that were scheduled. This was incredibly helpful to refer back to whenever I forgot a detail that I was already told and had just forgotten. This team always go above and well beyond the standard of care. Dr. Virden’s office even arranged transportation for me to and from surgery! You will not find a better cosmetic surgeon and staff.

What to Expect
The Sciton Forever Young BBL platform uses a pair of lights that transmit through a handpiece to the skin. Pulses of light at different wavelengths are projected into different depths of the skin to target specific concerns. When the skin absorbs the light, it stimulates collagen production, a critical component of restoring even tone and youthful firmness. Sciton treatments produce beautiful results not just on the face, but also on the hands and other areas where there might be uneven skin tone. The FDA-approved treatments can also tighten the skin and even reduce acne. Multiple treatments at regular intervals produce the best results. Dr. Virden can set up a treatment schedule for you during an evaluation.
There is no downtime required after this procedure. You may have some redness or discoloration in the first few days, but most people find it is easily covered with makeup. Dark pigmented areas may appear darker just after treatment, but they will flake off in a few days. Our medical team can provide you with skincare products to use at home to help enhance your results. Within a few weeks, you will be left with smooth, even, younger-looking skin.
