"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
"CHANGED MY LIFE!I whole heartily recommend Dr. Charles Virden for a procedure. I had two consults a couple of years apart for an abdominoplasty. He sat with me and asked, “what has changed”? This led to a wonderful, caring discussion on what had changed in the two years since my first consult. (loss of almost 100lbs) Dr. Virden became as excited or more excited as I was to the prospects of how this procedure would change my life. He was so caring and enthusiastic to do the procedure. As I lay in recovery, he threw back the curtain and said (with the largest smile I have ever seen), “Hello skinny, I’ll see you tomorrow.” I can only say, I wish I had done it sooner…it has Changed My life! Thank you, Thank you. Patty"- P.B. / Google / Oct 02, 2019
"Prior to having Dr Virden correct 2 botched surgeries I had given up on all hope of looking normal. The plastic surgeon that did my previous surgeries had me on a pump for a year then made me pay full price for a revision that was worse. Dr. Virden never had a doubt he could fix it and that gave me hope. I can honestly say I had given up on anyone fixing it, but he did! I am 3 weeks out from surgery and I feel like I did in my 20's! Seriously this isn't an exaggeration. I would refer my friends and family to Dr. Virden and his staff. His positive attitude and professional but kind bedside manner is comforting. I honestly can't say enough about my experience and how happy I am. If you're thinking about changing something please talk to him first. After all I have been through I can honestly say he comes through and has an eye for detail. Thank you Dr. Virden and staff for giving me a new outlook on myself."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Sep 12, 2019
"I've been going to see Leah S. for a few years now for a variety of things and she's the absolute best! I live in NYC and always make it point to book an appointment whenever I go back to visit family in Tahoe. She's incredibly knowledgeable, makes you feel comfortable and all her work is amazing. I would highly recommend Leah and even got a few friends and family members to start seeing her!"- K.O. / Google / Aug 27, 2019
"I saw Aleah Hartung the P.A. In Dr Virdens office for a skin tag removal. I didn’t have to wait months to get in to see her as if I had to see a dermatologist in any other office. I got in, in less than a week. Her technique was amazing, I didn’t feel a thing. I was very impressed. I highly recommend anyone who needs their skin looked at for any suspicious lesions, moles or any skin concerns."- N.T. / Google / Aug 07, 2019
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.
