"In October of 2018 I had a neck lift and brow lift with Dr. Virden. I am now 71 years old. I look fabulous, maybe 50! He & his staff & surgery center staff are all knowledgeable, considerate and caring. Dr. Virden also gave me a breast augmentation. My breasts are large and look natural."- M. / Healthgrades / Jun 05, 2020
"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

"What a great experience with incredible results! I come from the Bay Area to get laser treatment done here. The office staff is amazing and very attentive. Leah Salazar is professional, extremely knowledgable and makes you feel very comfortable. What I really appreciated about her is she takes the time to answer any questions you may have and doesn't make you feel rushed. I really appreciated how she went over the after care directions and explained what to expect over the next few days. I 100% recommend Leah Salazar and will definitely continue going to this office. Almost forgot, make sure you try the relaxation room with the massage chairs!"- B.C. / Google / Mar 05, 2020

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:
- Have facial lines, wrinkles, and folds
- Have excess skin on the upper eyelids
- Wish to restore skin laxity
- Desire long-lasting results
- Desire a noninvasive procedure
- Are ages 21 – 91
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.
