Halo is the first Hybrid Fractional Laser (HFL) in the world. It is a revolutionary skin resurfacing treatment. Halo provides non-ablative and ablative energy to the same microscopic area that is being treated.

HFL has proven itself to be a winner and comes without the downtime or discomfort that may usually occur with a laser treatment.  

Committed board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides laser skin resurfacing and various other procedures to patients in Las Vegas, NV and other neighborhoods and towns in this region of the southwest.

Technology

Halo delivers non-ablative and ablative wavelengths to the same tiny treatment area to provide excellent outcomes with minimal downtime. This new laser technology provides patients with precise, predictable, and effective results that improve the appearance of various skin problems. The laser skin resurfacing treatment is ideal for candidates who want to avoid cosmetic surgery.

The system combines intelligent energy delivery with Dynamic Thermal Optimization which offers patients targeted, safe, and effective outcomes. The laser technology is convenient to use and almost pain-free. It is a benchmark for laser resurfacing treatments of the future due to the safe and robust hybrid solution it offers.

Key Aspects of the Treatment

Visible signs of aging such as discoloration, scars, laxity, and wrinkles are a result of extended sun exposure, an active lifestyle and routine wear and tear of the skin. An ablative or coagulative fractional treatment enables the epidermis to recover fasters so long as the dermis is undamaged.

Ablative fractional resurfacing is a proven treatment that ablates aged tissue with less thermal damage and is associated with mild to moderate levels of downtime and morbidity.

On the other hand, non-ablative fractional resurfacing leads to thermal injury and tissue coagulation with lower morbidity levels. Halo offers patients an improved experience while providing safe and effective results without involving plastic surgery.

Advantages

Halo provides patients the following advantages:

  • It can treat pores with a combination of ablative and non-ablative wavelengths
  • The outcomes establish in only one to two treatment sessions rather than three to five traditional resurfacing treatments
  • The treatment is more convenient and comfortable in comparison to traditional fractional resurfacing as it does not require nerve blocks
  • Quicker recovery

Aesthetic benefits include:

  • Reduces the effects of Sun Damage/Dyschromia
  • Addresses aging signs
  • Reduces the appearance of enlarged pores
  • Offers evenness to an uneven skin tone
  • Improves poor texture
  • Corrects discoloration
  • Mitigates fine lines
  • Improves the presence of light scars

Halo is effective in the treatment of bodily and facial skin in most areas. Patients seek Halo on areas such as the chest, neck, hands, arms, scarring, and legs.

Outcomes

The Halo treatment offers excellent enhancements to skin texture and pigment. Patients can expect beautiful results in one to two treatment sessions. Older non-hybrid treatments typically require five to fix treatments to establish similar texture changes without any comparable improvements in pigmented skin.

Halo provides patients with a unique treatment experience. The session is almost painless and involves the use of only a topical anesthetic rather than nerve blocks. Furthermore, patients can even use makeup within a span of 24 hours following Halo.

Halo addresses long-term skin damage issues such as:

  • Sun damage
  • Scar revision
  • Apparent signs of aging
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Enlarged pores
  • Poor texture
  • Discoloration
  • Fine lines

Minimal Downtime

Halo offers patients the excellent outcomes with minimal downtime. It provides the best of both worlds by combining profound dermal revitalization with epidermal renewal.

This offers a synergistic improvement which is not possible with any other treatment. Accomplished cosmetic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides laser skin resurfacing to patients in Las Vegas, NV and nearby areas in The Sagebrush State.

Excerpts from a Few Patient Reviews on Yelp

Lindsay H., Las Vegas, NV

5.0 star rating 6/4/2018

This review is so longer overdue! My laser technician, Lynette, is the absolute best in the business! She is experienced and thorough with everything she does and she is the sweetest gal ever! I have been seeing Lynette for all my skin care needs for about 4 years. The past 2 years I have been a loyal monthly client doing almost every treatment she offers.

Over 10 years ago I had a terrible experience with a laser treatment that was SO painful, caused hypo pigmentation and even left me with some scars. It took me months to heal and weeks to even feel better and ever since then I have been scared to do a deeper laser treatment. But again, this was Lynette and she knows my history and my skin so well if I was going try a more intense laser Lynette is the ONLY I would let do it.

With that being said, I had the Halo Laser done on Thursday and I am so glad I did! All my fears of laser are gone! I’m healing and my skin looks so bright and SO CLEAR! I have a few more days of healing, but WOW, it is so worth it! No complications like I had before over 10 years ago.

They allow you to numb for 1 hour in most cases. The doctor even came in while I was numbing and asked me if I had any questions or concerns before we started. On a scale of 1-10 the pain level throughout the treatment for me was a 2-3, but mostly a 2! I was shocked. I thought it would be more painful, but it wasn’t!

The technology on the laser is the best. Mapping out the measurements of the area to be treated and timed so you can feel confident it is a thorough and accurate treatment. Also, it is a dual laser meaning it’s non-ablative and ablative allowing recovery time to be quicker than traditional fraxel.

As a working Esthetician for 13 years, there is just no other person I’d trust with my skin! You’ll be in good hands with my girl Lynette! She keeps my skin looking bright and flawless.

As for Dr. Richards, aside from his surgical talent, he has an excellent bedside manner and really makes you feel comfortable when speaking with you. He is real, down to earth, affable, and doesn’t project any sort of smug or superior attitude. From what I experienced, he treats you like you’re a friend of a friend. He gives you his cell number in case you have questions or concerns, and tells you not to hesitate to call or text.

You really can’t ask for more than that, but still, he and his staff deliver.

If you are on the fence, take the time to have a consultation with Dr. Richards. The hundreds of 5 star reviews across multiple websites are not lying – they are there for a reason – and that reason is because he has earned them!

The office is really classy. The doctor has won many awards that he has displayed around the office. There is a cozy fireplace and drinks available.

I have had Botox before so really appreciated it was such a quick process. I did not have to fill out a ton of paperwork or sit with a doctor forever. I was literally in and out in 15 minutes.

I got no bruising and the results overall are fantastic. I am really really happy and will be returning.

Truly an amazing doctor and staff! I had a mommy makeover due to back pain from having twins and it has significantly helped my back pain. I am extremely happy with the doctor he knows exactly what he is doing and truly cares about his patients. The staff is very helpful and has answered all of my questions in a timely manner. Could not be more happy with this cosmetic surgeon! Truly the best in town!

5.0 star rating 10/17/2017

There is a perfectly good explanation for Dr. Bryson Richards having the number 1 spot with over 100 5 Star reviews on YELP. Because he has earned it! Because he deserves it! Because he has an incredible team!

After interviewing 5 other doctors in Las Vegas and San Diego, I knew Dr. Richards was my doctor. He listens to me but he is not afraid to give his professional and educated opinion… and has even said no to me. His confidence comforts me. And I am convinced he has magic hands. The professional and friendly staff is equally impressive. The facially is beautifully and modern.

As an Elite Yelper, I am listing all procedures I have by Dr. Richard because I would have appreciated talking to someone that had actually gone through the procedures. So, please feel free to ask me any questions. Clearly, I am not a health care professional so please limit questions as from a patient’s perspective only. He gives complete and free consults so I do suggest starting there.

What is BBL | Broadband Light Therapy?Broadband light (BBL) therapy is a non-surgical procedure to reduce aging signs and damage due to sun exposure. Although various types of non-surgical, anti-aging treatments are available today to improve the skin’s appearance, but BBL adopts a distinct approach from most of these treatments.

BBL treatment is designed to enhance the skin’s appearance by revitalizing the ribonucleic acid (RNA) in the tissue. RNA is a nucleic acid that is found in all living cells, and a robust RNA activity will enable the skin to appear more youthful and healthier.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides BBL therapy to patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding locations.

Stanford University Research Supports BBL

As per a recent research study “Rejuvenation of Gene Expression Pattern of Aged Human Skin by BroadBand Light Treatment,” conducted by Dr. Anne S. Chang of Stanford University School of Medicine, aging cells can be functionally revitalized through BBL therapy. The study highlights that molecular changes resembling the features of younger skin occur after aged cells are treated with BBL Therapy.

BBL Light Therapy uses Pulsed Light Target technology that addresses:

  • Acne
  • Pigmented Skin (freckles, age spots)
  • Lax Skin
  • Uneven Skin Texture
  • Vascular Lesions (small blood vessels)

BBL is Suitable for the Entire Body

Rejuvenate skin on any location of the body. Mitigate aging signs and sun damage on any part of the body for brighter, more youthful skin. BBL therapy can address hyperpigmentation and restore tighter skin in the face, chest, shoulders, back, hands, neck and any other part of the body.

Rapidly Visible Outcomes

Patients report visible enhancement in the treatment sites. BBL therapy treats pigmentation lesions (lentigines and ephelides), vascular lesions (Such as telangiectasias and cherry angiomas), acne, rosacea, and enhances the skin’s texture. It improves the appearance of fine lines through prompting the production of new collagen, providing the skin with more volume and glow.

What to Expect during the Treatment

Broadband Light Therapy is non-surgical, and the patient receives the treatment in one of our luxurious, relaxed treatment rooms as a chilled sapphire crystal is applied to the skin. This crystal delivers rapid pulses of light to the skin. The treatment takes less than one hour, and patients can immediately resume their routine activities such as working, exercise, and using makeup with no need for downtime.

Redness (akin to a flushed look) remains for 2 to 3 hours after the procedure. Certain patients with skin pigmentation issues may experience a darkening of the treated site which is followed by flaking off and fading.

How Many Treatments are required?

The number of treatment sessions will differ between patients. The treatment provider can individualize a treatment plan depending on the degree of improvement that you desire. The provider may recommend combing BBL therapy with other sought-after treatments such as dermal fillers or Botox to customize your treatment further as well as help you attain the appearance that you desire.

What to Expect after BBL Therapy?

You may experience mild redness right after the treatment. It may feel like slight sunburn at the treatment location. This should subside after some hours. It may likely last for 24 to 48 hours in some instances. Experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides BBL therapy to patients in Las Vegas, NV and nearby areas.

Laser Skin Resurfacing Before and After PhotosLaser skin resurfacing is one of the safe, prudent, and effective procedures to reduce the signs of aging for people who want to avoid cosmetic surgery.

During the initial consultation, the laser expert will explain all aspects of the treatment in order to help the patient make an informed choice.

Sometimes the provider may present laser skin resurfacing before and after photographs at the first consultation to enable the patient to understand the potential benefits of the procedure. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides laser skin resurfacing to patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding communities in The Sagebrush State.

What are Laser Skin Resurfacing Before and After Images?

Before and after images in case of laser skin resurfacing refer to a set of pictures belonging to a previous patient who has received the same treatment successfully. The set includes images taken before the procedure and after the procedure at a time when the initial redness in the treated sites is resolved and complete effects of the treatment have settled in.

These pictures are taken only with the consent of the patient. The provider will take care to ensure that the patient’s privacy and confidentiality is maintained.

The goal of the treatment provider is to educate new patients about various aspects of the laser procedure through these pictures. The photographs serve as a visual tool to help a new patient understand what the procedure can or cannot for them.

Advantages

Laser skin resurfacing procedures include aggressive or ablative treatments to repair deeply sun damaged skin, and less aggressive or non-ablative treatments for moderate skin enhancement. Some treatments may also combine the benefits of both ablative and non-ablative techniques. For a new patient, it can be difficult to decide which of the treatment approaches may be more suited to meet their aesthetic or anti-aging needs.

This is where the laser treatment provider can use before and after photos very effectively to help the patient make the best possible decision.

Different types of skin problems may be addressed with different laser treatments. If the patient has access to laser skin resurfacing before and after photos (which can possibly happen during the consultation), they can comprehend the potential outcomes with different treatments in a better way.

The real key is here digital technology. It would be derelict not to mention the breakthroughs that this technology has created for humanity. Workplace after workplace has been utilizing this technology and the plastic surgery industry is certainly one of these workplaces or industries.

Now anyone can see these remarkable pictures from anywhere they want as long as they have Internet access. This will be mentioned again but currently there is only one before and after picture pertaining to laser skin resurfacing on this website. Certainly a potential patient can request to see more pictures of this kind during the consultation.

Keeping Realistic Expectations

Best satisfaction from any plastic surgery or non-surgical aesthetic procedure can usually be achieved when the patient has clear aesthetic goals, positive frame of mind, and realistic expectations. A new patient may not always understand clearly what the laser skin resurfacing treatment can or cannot do for them.

If the patient forms misplaced expectations, it could result in disappointment for them later on. Such unsavory situations can be avoided if the treatment provider makes use of laser skin resurfacing before and after photographs.

Online Digital Photos

Some practices may choose to provide the laser skin resurfacing before and after images on their official website and this is certainly one of them. There is one picture of this particular type of plastic surgery but if someone were to look at the other pictures they will be able to ascertain the skill of Dr. Richards. For this particular surgery, a patient should ask for more pictures during the consultation.

Moreover, this allows free online access to the photos to anyone who may be considering this treatment and transparency is the key here. It does not take anyone to devote any deep thought to be able to grasp that this clinic knows what they are doing in terms of plastic surgery and what this entails.

New patients can view the photos (as said before, there is only one photo for skin resurfacing right now) in the privacy of their home or office even before they decide to visit the surgeon’s practice for a consultation.

What is The Price Tag For Laser Skin Resurfacing?Laser skin rejuvenation treatments are increasingly sought-after in recent times due to FDA clearance for cutting-edge laser technologies, and all-round positive feedback from patients and surgeons for various laser skin rejuvenation procedures.

During the initial consultation, the surgeon will inform the patient on various facets of the treatment, including the approximate costs. Patients can compare laser skin resurfacing treatment costs and benefits with those of other procedures and make a well-considered decision according to their cosmetic needs.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides laser skin resurfacing to patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding locations in The Silver State.

Cost Comparison with Surgery

Skin rejuvenation cosmetic surgery for the face and body can be much more costly than laser skin resurfacing procedure.

A surgical procedure will possibly be more cost-effective in the long-term, but every patient may not be amenable to spending a significant amount of money on elective surgery, or may want to avoid surgery due to the risks, discomfort or downtime involved.

Laser treatments do not require IV sedation or general anesthesia, which is a typical requirement for a plastic surgery procedure. Laser procedures can be conveniently performed in-office, unlike surgery. As a result, surgery may be more expensive due to the surgeon’s fee, anesthesiologist’s fee, operating room charges or overnight hospital stay.

A surgery may also involve other costs such as medical tests, prescription meds, and surgical garments. In a non-invasive treatment such as laser skin rejuvenation procedure, most of these costs are avoided.

Practice Location

Laser skin resurfacing monetary amounts can differ between two practices as well as between two patients at the same practice. The living cost index will vary from one place to another, which can impact the average dollar figure of most types of goods and services, including cosmetic treatments.

Nature and Extent of Treatment

The approach to laser skin resurfacing procedures may be ablative or non-ablative. Each approach involves a distinct laser technique which differs in intensity, treatment area to be addressed, and the number of sessions required. Ablative laser techniques are more aggressive for deeper results, while non-ablative lasers are less vigorous and are more suited to treat mild to moderately damaged skin.

There is a cost difference between various laser skin resurfacing techniques. The number of treatments needed typically vary between 3 to 6 sessions. The procedure cost may be computed on a per treatment basis or as a lump sum package rate, depending on the situation. The treatment area may include a part of the face or the entire face, neck, and other regions. These factors will be assessed to determine the total cost of the treatment.

The patient may require 3 to 6 treatment sessions on average to attain optimal outcomes. Vigorous treatments involving ablative lasers may be slightly more expensive. However, the financial stipulations may be reduced when the treatment is a part of combined aesthetic procedure. Patients should also explore various financing options to pay for the treatment in convenient monthly installments.

 Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser For Skin ResurfacingHalo, which is the world’s first hybrid fractional laser, applies tunable non-ablative (1470nm) and ablative (2940nm) wavelengths to the same microscopic treatment zone to optimize outcomes and decrease downtime.

This innovative technology generates precise, reproducible, efficient outcomes that enhance the appearance of multiple skin conditions. Dynamic Thermal Optimization in combination with intelligent energy provides safe, even, and targeted treatments.

Halo is convenient to use and essentially pain-free. It sets a benchmark for laser resurfacing procedures in the future through offering a safe and robust long-term hybrid solution for laser skin rejuvenation. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides Halo Hybrid fractional skin resurfacing treatment to patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding communities in The Silver State.

Unique Features

Noticeable signs of aging such as wrinkles, scars, sagginess, and discoloration can result from long-term exposure to the sun, an active lifestyle and regular wear and tear of the skin.

An ablative or coagulative fractional treatment enables the epidermis to heal rapidly so long as the dermis is not damaged. Ablative fractional resurfacing is a proven procedure that removes aged tissue with minimal thermal injury involving mild to moderate downtime and morbidity.

On the other hand, non-ablative fractional resurfacing leads to thermal injury and tissue coagulation with lower morbidity levels. The Halo hybrid fractional laser is a combination of ablative and non-ablative wavelengths which are delivered to the same microscopic treatment site to optimize clinical outcomes and reduce downtimes. Halo is a safe and efficient procedure that enhances the patient experience.

Advantages

Halo offers unique advantages including:

  • Capability to treat pores through ablative and non-ablative wavelengths
  • Outcomes in just 1 to 2 treatments sessions vs. 3 to 5 traditional resurfacing treatment sessions
  • Lower consumable cost vs. leading competitor
  • More comfortable and painless in comparison to traditional fractional resurfacing (it does not require nerve blocks)
  • Quicker healing time

Patients who receive Halo notice a significant enhancement in the appearance of pigment and texture. They would receive such excellent outcomes in 1 to 2 Halo sessions while non-hybrid technology frequently require 5 to 6 treatment sittings to provide similar textural changes, without focusing on Halo’s pigment correction abilities.

The Halo experience is unique to patients. The treatment itself is quite comfortable with only the need for topical anesthetic (no requirement for nerve blocks). Patients may use makeup within 24 hours of the treatment.

Key Treatment Aspects

Main treatments are as follows:

  • Sun Damage or dyschromia
  • Aging Signs
  • Improve the look of large pores
  • Discoloration
  • Enhance the appearance of fines lines
  • Poor texture
  • Enhance the appearance of mild scars
  • Correct uneven tone

Halo is effective on a majority of skin types on the face and body. Sought-after off-face treatments sites include areas such as the chest, arms, neck, hands, chest, legs, and scarring.

Halo sets the benchmark for laser resurfacing treatments of the future by offering a safe, effective, and tunable long-term hybrid solution for skin resurfacing. Judicious cosmetic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards receives patients from Las Vegas, NV and other towns and suburbs in this part of the southwest for laser skin rejuvenation.

Sun Damage Repair TreatmentsAny adult who is unhappy with the appearance of lines, wrinkles, sun damage or scars on the face may consider cosmetic surgery procedures to address their condition. But not every person seeks an invasive procedure for cosmetic enhancement, and some people prefer non-surgical treatment options.

Such people may make ideal candidates for MicroLaserPeel, which is an advanced sun damage repair treatment. This procedure uses a safe and effective technique involving special lasers to improve the appearance and texture of the skin.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides MicroLaserPeel to patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding locations.

MicroLaserPeel ‘Weekend Peel’ for Sun Damage: Conditions Treated

MicroLaserPeel treatment will mildly remove a thin layer of the outer compromised skin to enhance texture and rejuvenate the skin.

This procedure offers high precision depth which provides for better results in the treatment of various skin conditions. Unlike cosmetic surgery, this procedure can be performed in-office. It can be individualized to suit particular skin conditions as well as meet the patient’s personal aesthetic goals.

The most frequent treatment sites are the face and neck. However, the chest and hands can also be addressed with MicroLaserPeel in some instances. MicroLaserPeel can effectively treat the following conditions:

  • Keratosis
  • Pigment irregularities
  • Mild wrinkles
  • Sun damage (such as freckles)
  • Scars

How does it Work?

The provider will target the damaged area with MicroLaserPeel’s laser beam to vaporize or ablate a very thin skin layer to eliminate old, damaged, and dead skin cells. This will remove superficial blemishes and irregularities in the pigment that are leading to a tired, older appearance.

As the skin starts to heal, new cells generate and resurfacing occurs in the treatment areas. This will lead to the restoration of healthier, younger looking skin with enhanced color evenness and mitigated wrinkles. Several patients highlight that their skin transformed from looking old and fatigued to dazzling and youthful.

Procedure

Before the procedure, the treatment provider will cover the patient’s eyes using a safety shield for protection. They will then clean and disinfect the treatment area. The laser specialist will place the MicroLaserPeel hand unit precisely over the targeted area.

They will hold it in position while the computer-guided scanner moves the laser beam across the site. The procedure may take around 15 to 30 minutes dependent on the surface area that is to be treated.

MicroLaserPeel is a mild procedure where the laser beams do not penetrate deeply into the skin. This means that the patient will not experience significant pain or uneasiness.

A majority of patients will be able to tolerate the treatment without anesthetic at the most shallow settings. However, at deeper settings, the treatment provider will apply a topical numbing cream to ensure that the patient remains comfortable during the procedure.

The number of treatment sessions can vary from one patient to another, depending on their extent of correction required. The provider may sometimes recommend other procedures in conjunction with MicroLaserPeel to address skin imperfections.

Revanesse Versa

Revanesse Versa is the newest and highly effective hyaluronic acid based biocompatible dermal filler to achieve facial rejuvenation for patients without cosmetic surgery.

This injectable filler is designed to correct the appearance of nasolabial folds and other facial wrinkles and creases.

Revanesse Versa has been approved by the FDA for the cosmetic treatment of facial wrinkles and creases. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides Revanesse Versa dermal filler injections to patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding locations.

Proven Filler for Nearly Two Decades

Although Revanesse Versa has been introduced now in the US for people who are looking to take control of the signs of aging, this multi-purpose dermal filler is tried and tested worldwide with more than one million syringes used since 2002.

The filler is created using state of the art production methods, optimal ingredients and rigorous quality testing to provide remarkable results for people who want to avoid facial plastic surgery.

The Versa Difference

A unique formula, high quality ingredients and innovative manufacturing techniques differentiate Revanesse Versa from most other hyaluronic acid based cosmetic fillers.

Natural Looking Results

Versa filler gel is highly homogenous due to its advanced wet milling technology and proprietary formula. This means that the filler gel particles are uniquely spherical and uniform, providing an ideal balance between smoothness and volume for even, natural looking results.

Longer Lasting

The spherical particle shape of the Versa filler gel is designed to be accepted by the body more easily, and the gel disintegrates slowly over time in the deeper tissue. For added longevity, Versa exclusively uses advanced quality HA with a notably high molecular weight.

Reduced Swelling

In a recent study another popular (HA) dermal filler was shown to produce swelling 24% more often than Versa. The lower rate of swelling with Versa means many patients are able to get back to their normal routine almost immediately after the treatment.

Individual Quality Control and Safety Design

Versa dermal filler is manufactured in North America and conforms to global and FDA safety standards. Extensive tests are performed on all of the raw materials used to produce Versa and strict controls are used during the manufacturing process.

The manufacturer tests each batch meticulously in-house. As a final test, each syringe is individually inspected for its safety and efficacy.

Avoid a mass production approach, and producing the filler gel in smaller batches helps ensure that best quality standards are maintained and the product is always delivered fresh.

Superior Crosslinking of HA Molecules

A multicenter, double-blinded, randomized, split-face study of the safety and efficacy of Revanesse Versa hyaluronic acid gel for the correction of nasolabial folds established its superior safety and efficacy attributes. While a range of crosslinked HA fillers are available today, not all crosslinked HA gels are identical.

Crosslinking alters the rheological properties of HA gels, and the surgeon must choose which is crosslinked HA filler is more appropriate for a patient, and if required, modify their injection technique.

The advanced crosslinking process used in the manufacture of Revanessa Versa dermal filler is designed to promote links between different HA polymer chains and to minimize less effective links on parts of the same chain. An optimal degree of crosslinking inhibits the natural degradation of the filler, thus prolonging longevity in the treated area.

The filler gel milling results in small, spherical, and uniform particles to promote optimal integration in the treated area, slow, predictable breakdown, and ease of injection. Committed cosmetic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards receives patients from Las Vegas, NV and other towns and communities in this region of the southwest for dermal filler injections.

Skin Resurfacing Treatment Before And After PhotosMany innovative procedures are available today to perform skin resurfacing without involving cosmetic surgery.  During the pre-operative consultation, the surgeon will explain various skin resurfacing treatment options, and may also show before and after photographs for the patient’s better understanding.

The initial consultation provides an opportunity to the patient to learn about skin resurfacing more clearly and make a well-considered decision.

The surgeon will encourage the patient to ask questions and clarify any doubts and concerns that they may have. Accomplished board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides skin resurfacing to patients in Las Vegas, NV, and surrounding locations across the horizon.

What are Skin Resurfacing Before and After Photographs?

Before and after photographs in case of skin resurfacing treatment refer to a pair or group of pictures belonging to a past patient who has received the same treatment with a satisfactory outcome.

The photographs include pictures taken before the treatment and after the treatment at a stage when all treatment sessions are over, the initial post-operative redness has been resolved, and complete skin resurfacing effects are visible.

The surgeon will take care to ensure that these pictures are obtained from the patient with their proper consent. These will be presented before new patients in an appropriate manner and the patient’s identity will be kept confidential as needed. The surgeon’s only purpose behind this effort is to use these pictures as a visual tool to educate new patients about the potential benefits of skin resurfacing.

When a new patient seeks a skin resurfacing procedure for the first time, they may only have a limited understanding of what benefits they can get from this treatment. They would be naturally concerned to know whether the procedure will meet their personal cosmetic goals and expectations.

Some patients may require only two to three treatment sessions of laser skin resurfacing in a particular area, while others may need more extensive treatment in multiple sites. In a few cases, the skin resurfacing treatment may have to be combined with other techniques such as dermal filler injections to meet the patient’s goals. In all such cases, the patient will be in position to make better decisions when they have access to skin resurfacing before and after photos.

These digital pictures can enable someone to see what to expect with clarity and conviction. This was just not the case even a decade ago. In this regard, things have changed for the better.

Reasonable Expectations

Experienced surgeons recognize that the highest satisfaction levels in aesthetic procedures are usually achieved when the patient has clear goals and reasonable expectations from a procedure. Therefore, the surgeon may like to present skin resurfacing before and after photos at the first appointment.

Once the patient is clear about what to expect and what not to expect from the results, they can appreciate the final results in a better way. The risk of any disappointment occurring at a later stage is reduced. Pragmatic cosmetic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards receives patients from Las Vegas, NV, and nearby areas for skin resurfacing.

How much do Skin Resurfacing Treatments Cost?Laser skin resurfacing is a proven skin rejuvenation procedure for individuals who want to reduce signs of aging, sun damage, and various other skin imperfections without undergoing cosmetic surgery.

During the initial consultation, the provider will explain different aspects of the procedure to the patient, including its approximate costs.

The primary goal of a dedicated treatment provider will be to assist the patient to make a well-considered choice. The patient should freely ask questions regarding the costs as well as other factors. Laser skin resurfacing is usually performed as an elective aesthetic procedure.

This means that medical insurance will not cover this treatment. Cordial board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides skin resurfacing treatments to patients in Las Vegas, NV, and surrounding locations in The Sagebrush State.

Cost Comparison

A skin resurfacing treatment will be less expensive than a plastic surgery such as a facelift. Surgical procedures usually entail costs such as surgeon fees, general anesthesia, surgical facility costs, and pre and post-op expenses. Laser skin resurfacing is an outpatient treatment that can be administered in-office. Therefore, it does not involve the additional costs that are inherent to plastic surgery.

Certain patients may want to understand the cost comparison between laser skin resurfacing and other non-invasive alternatives such as microdermabrasion, IPL skin rejuvenation, chemical peels, and dermal filler injectables. Some of these treatments may be less expensive than laser skin resurfacing, but they may not offer the same outcomes.

These factors make it essential for the patient to evaluate their skin condition, budget, and aesthetic goals before making a final choice.

Price Tag Variations

Laser skin resurfacing procedures involve the use of diverse laser techniques and technologies. Patients can choose between non-ablative and ablative or fractional laser resurfacing. The choice depends on the depth of the imperfections in the skin that need to be addressed. Ablative laser skin resurfacing procedures may be costlier overall, and include considerable downtime.

The number of treatment sessions and treatment areas may differ between patients. The costs for a patient who requires only 2 to 3 treatment sessions will be less than those for patients who need 5 to 6 sittings to meet their cosmetic needs.

The geographic location of the practice will impact the costs of the skin resurfacing treatment. Practices situated in busy metropolitan cities or main urban centers usually have to bear higher real estate and overhead costs in comparison to practices located in small, interior towns.

The individualized care, quality standards, type of technology, safety protocols, and qualified support team impact the overall cost of the treatment to a certain degree. During the initial consultation, the patient should freely ask questions related to costs and make a judicious decision after comparing the costs and benefits with other treatment options.

Financing

Patients should ask the treatment provider or their staff for information on payment options in advance. Most patients will qualify for third-party financing by professional health care financing firms at reasonable rates of interest and easy payment terms.
