Sun damage and environmental pollutants adversely affect the skin as a person ages. This leads to wrinkles and pigment aberrations, especially on facial skin.

A laser peel can effectively reduce or eliminate these problems. It is also an excellent way to reduce visible lines around the mouth and eyes without involving cosmetic surgery.

Various types of lasers are used to perform peels. However, Contour TRL is widely regarded as one of the safest and most successful laser skin resurfacing treatments available to patients today. Focused board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides laser skin resurfacing to patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding communities in The Silver State.

What is Contour TRL Erbium Resurfacing?

Contour TRL is an Erbium Yag laser which has been developed for skin resurfacing by eliminating a variable depth of aging and damaged skin. It can successfully reduce or eliminate fine lines and wrinkles as well as pigment irregularities. It also enhances the overall thickness and pliability of the skin by promoting the growth of fresh collagen.

After the treatment, the surface of the skin regenerates new and healthy cells. This gives the skin a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

The treatment depth depends on the skin condition, desired results, and acceptable downtime of each patient. Unlike plastic surgery, this is an in-office procedure which is individualized to the particular skin goals of a patient.

How Does Contour TRL Laser Peel Work?

Contour TRL safely removes a layer of skin to a depth determined by the physician. The depth of treatment will depend on the patient’s skin condition, desired outcome, and expectation for downtime. As Contour TRL impacts the skin tissue with micron precision, the physician can treat the patient’s skin with the accurate amount of energy required.

Laser treatment promotes the production of fresh collagen which enhances the thickness and resilience of the skin. The surface of the skin will also develop new and healthy cells. This offers the skin a youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

What Conditions can be treated with Contour TRL?

  • Deep wrinkles, even in challenging areas such as the eyes and mouth
  • Scars
  • Poor skin tone and texture
  • Actinic Keratoses
  • Solar spots

What will happen during the Procedure?

The treatment provider will thoroughly cleanse the skin in the treatment site and place protective eye shields. They will then position the laser handpiece over the skin and hold it in place while the computer-guided scanner moves the laser ray over the treatment region. The procedure typically lasts for 15 to 30 minutes depending on the size of the treatment area.

What Should I Expect Immediately Following the Treatment?

The patient may have redness and a sunburn-type sensation right after the treatment. There may be some inflammation in the treated sites as well.

The physician will advise the patient on aftercare following the treatment. This may include analgesics and using an ointment to ensure that the skin stays moist.

Broadband light therapy (BBL) is a non-invasive procedure that can help mitigate skin imperfections that might occur due to aging effects and sun damage.

The surgeon will inform the patient on various aspects of this non cosmetic surgery procedure, including its approximate costs during the pre-treatment consultation.

A committed surgeon will make sure that the patient receives the correct information on costs as well as insurance and financing to enable them to make a well-considered choice. Devoted board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides BBL | Broadband light therapy to patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding locations across the horizon.

Financial Comparison with Surgery

Surgical skin rejuvenation procedures for the face such as a facelift plastic surgery can be much more expensive in comparison to the BBL light therapy procedure. While in the long-term, surgical treatment will likely be more sustainable justifying the costs.

However, every patient is not prepared to spend a significant amount on elective surgery. BBL therapy is a non-invasive procedure which means that it does not have costs such as general anesthesia or IV sedation associated with it as surgical procedures do.

A surgical procedure may also involve costs such as the cosmetic surgeon’s fee and surgical venue expenses or costs related to an overnight stay at the hospital which will add to the overall procedure costs.

Furthermore, surgery usually involves post-op costs such as medical tests, prescription meds, surgical accessories, and other related expenses. A laser skin rejuvenation procedure such as BBL helps the patient avoid all these costs.

Financial Factors

In comparison to plastic surgery, BBL therapy costs are substantially lesser. But the cost of the treatment can differ between two practices, and at times, even between two patients at the same practice. The below mentioned factors will influence the total procedure costs:

Practice Location

BBL therapy costs can differ marginally between practices and patients. The average cost of living varies from one region to another.

This can impact the financial considerations for goods and services, including cosmetic procedures such as BBL therapy. Practices in main metropolitan cities and busy urban centers typically have higher overhead and real estate costs. This can have an impact on the dollar amount of the BBL procedure.

Treatment Provider’s Expertise

The experience and authority of the BBL treatment provider will affect the procedure cost. Outstanding practitioners invest in the most modern techniques, pursue on-going education and follow the latest safety protocols. In such cases, the provider’s charges could be slightly higher.

Nature and Extent of Treatment

The treatment monetary amount will vary depending on the number of treatment sessions that a patient needs. The sticker price may be determined on the basis of the number of treatment sessions, or on a package rate basis according to the situation. The treatment area could be the entire face and neck, a part of the face or other areas. The total treatment cost will be calculated after accounting for these variables.

Prudent cosmetic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards receives patients from Las Vegas, NV and nearby areas in The Battle Born State for BBL | Broadband light therapy and various other procedures.

Laser skin resurfacing is a prudent, proven, and effective anti-aging procedure. It can revitalize the skin reducing the impact of aging, sun exposure, and certain facial skin disorders without involving cosmetic surgery.

The outcomes and recovery duration of laser skin resurfacing differ based on the size of the treatment area and the laser being used for the procedure. Treatments that are most invasive may offer substantial enhancements. However, they involve an extensive healing period of many weeks.

A milder laser skin rejuvenation treatment may mitigate some skin aberrations and may involve negligible or no downtime. Patients should consult an experienced aesthetic surgeon to understand the most suitable procedure for their individual case and the approximate recovery duration and outcomes that they may anticipate.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides laser skin resurfacing to patients in Las Vegas, NV and nearby communities in this area of the southwest.

Mild and Temporary Side Effects

Unlike plastic surgery, laser skin resurfacing may only lead to occasional side effects in individual patients. But these side effects are typically minor and resolve by themselves in a short duration. Patients commonly experience side effects such as skin redness, inflammation in the treated site, and moderate irritation similar to that caused by mild sunburn.  

In exceptional cases, laser skin resurfacing has led to side effects such as scarring, burning, or alteration in skin pigmentation. A well-trained surgeon will discuss these potential risks and complications with the patient during the pre-treatment consultation.

Expected Recovery

The patient will take around two weeks to recover after laser skin resurfacing treatment. In this duration, the treated site will heal, and a fresh layer of healthy skin will be apparent.

The recovery time after a laser skin treatment differs. The type of laser used determines the recovery duration in most cases. The recovery period is usually around two weeks after a CO2 laser treatment. Erbium laser skin resurfacing to treat fine lines and superficial wrinkles involve recovery duration of only around one week. Patients undergoing Fraxel laser treatments heal after just a few days of the treatment.

Redness or pinkness of the skin typically lasts for a longer time. It can even persist for up to many months. In case this occurs, patients may use makeup to cover the discoloration until it subsides.

Patients considering laser skin resurfacing should plan to remain away from work for a period of one to two weeks. The extent of the treatment will determine how long they need to take leave from work.

The recovery time for individual laser skin resurfacing patients differs in each case. The recovery duration following this procedure depends mostly on the overall health and lifestyle of the patient as well as how fast their body heals.

Is recovery painful?

Patients may experience some inflammation and discomfort during the recovery phase after laser skin resurfacing procedure.

However, the pain and discomfort can be addressed easily. The surgeon may provide the patient with pain medications to manage the discomfort. Committed cosmetic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards receives patients from Las Vegas, NV and neighboring communities in The Sage Brush State for laser skin resurfacing.

This will mitigate the risk of any misunderstanding occurring at a later stage, and also help the patient to achieve better satisfaction from the final results.

Photographs on the Website

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) Recovery TimeTummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) Recovery Time

The extent of a tummy tuck cosmetic surgery and the surgical technique involved will determine for how long the patient needs to restrict their physical activities.

While the patient will not be confined to the bed for long (and should not be) they will have to avoid rigorous activities for a few weeks. Furthermore, special care will be required to avoid putting excessive strain on the incisions.

A patient could benefit greatly from understanding the overall process of abdominoplasty from the pre-op preparation to the recovery phase. This information can assist patients in going ahead with a tummy tuck confidently, and achieve excellent outcomes and satisfaction from this mid-section contouring surgery.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides tummy tuck surgery to patients in Las Vegas, NV, and surrounding locations in this area of the country.

Variable Recovery Time

The degree of correction performed will be the most significant determinant of the time needed for recovery post-surgery.

A mini tummy tuck or a partial abdominoplasty helps to refine the region below the navel. It usually entails an incision in between the hip bone area, making the abdominal muscles tauter, while eliminating the surplus tissue and fat. Patients can typically resume their routine after a week of restricted activities.

While a standard abdominoplasty is quite like a mini tummy tuck plastic surgery, it will also include addressing the area above the navel.

An extended tummy tuck surgery, on the other hand, will typically include liposuction in conjunction with other procedures targeting the flanks or love handles. These two major abdominoplasty surgeries may need one to two weeks of restricted activity after the surgery.

The standard and extended tummy tucks involve placing drainage pipes that assist in preventing the accumulation of blood and fluid at the location of the incisions. The surgeon may take one tube out after the initial three days of the surgery.

The remaining tubes will be removed after a few more days. Also, the surgeon will recommend a customized support garment to help prevent fluid buildup.

Meanwhile, patients must remember that they do not need to be immobilized while they heal. Instead, they should include some light activities and short walks at home in their early recovery phase. Patients can decrease the risk of the formation of blood clots with these simple and light movements. Usually, the incisions are completely healed after a period of two weeks.

Each abdominoplasty case is different, but typically patients with sedentary desk work can resume work after a week. Patients with more physically demanding jobs will need to be away from work for a minimum of 2 to 3 weeks before resuming their normal work.

Follow-up Appointments

The first follow-up appointment may be scheduled a day after the tummy tuck surgery to monitor the condition. Additional appointments will be made according to the patient’s risk factors. Stitches and drain tubes may be removed around the end of the first week. Accomplished cosmetic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards receives patients from Las Vegas, NV, and other cities and towns in this part of Nevada for tummy tuck.

What is a Mid Facelift?  | Bullhead City | Vegas Plastic SurgeryAs a person ages, the facial skin will begin to lose its tone and elasticity. The mid face or the cheek area as well as area below the eyelids may tend to sag, creating a haggard look. Mid facelift cosmetic surgery can restore a youthful and smooth appearance of the cheeks and lower eyelid area.

During the initial consultation, the surgeon will carefully determine the patient’s candidacy for a mid facelift and educate them about various aspects of the procedure. Stellar, hardworking, and board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides mid facelift surgery to patients in Las Vegas, NV, and surrounding communities in this area of The Battle Born State.

 

Candidacy

Mid facelift plastic surgery is aimed at improving the areas around the nose, eyes, and corners of the mouth. Patients who seek cheek lift when the neck and areas below the chin do not require elevation can ideally benefit from this procedure. While some surgeons perform mid facelift surgery with traditional lower facelift techniques, others may recommend endoscopic facelift techniques to improve precision and recovery time.

 

Evaluation for Customize Surgical Plan

The surgeon will perform the following assessments to create a custom mid facelift plan:

  • Assess the mid face for asymmetries, the location of the lateral canthi, the amount of anterior and lateral projection of the cheek, and the depth of the nasolabial creases.
  • Evaluate whether the bulk of mid face volume deficit lies laterally, medially, or in the sub-malar region.
  • Determine whether facial fat transfer or cheek implants may have to be combined with mid facelift surgery.

 

Surgical Procedure

Following anesthesia, the surgeon will create precise incisions in the muscle tissue of the mid face. If the procedure is performed endoscopically, the surgeon will insert a tiny camera device through the incisions to view the internal structures clearly. The surgeon will then redistribute or correct the mid face fat and muscle tissue, gently pulling up the middle of the face to smooth and tighten the skin.

Once the surgery is completed, the incisions will be closed with sutures and the healing process will begin. The incisions will initially be covered with bandages. Fabulous and judicious cosmetic surgeon Dr. Richards receives patients from Las Vegas, NV, and nearby areas across the horizon for a mid facelift.

 

Surgical Techniques for Mid Facelift

If the surgeon chooses a traditional mid facelift technique, they will use an incision hidden in the lower lash line to gain access to the cheeks and lower eyelids. An incision in the nasolabial fold may also be made in some cases. The traditional technique is more appropriate in cases where the patient primarily needs the tissues to be lifted upward, rather than horizontally or diagonally.

The other technique involves the use of an endoscope and creates slight more dramatic results. The surgeon will perform the procedure by placing two endoscopic incisions in the temples, hidden behind the hairline. Through these access points, the surgeon will lift facial muscles and skin both vertically and diagonally.

With both types of techniques, a mid facelift can improve under-eye bags, hollowness in the upper cheeks, and prominent nasal folds.

Excess fatty tissue in the upper arms can create an unsightly appearance, and cause restrictions in arm movement as well as limit their choice of clothes. For people who want to avoid cosmetic surgery and yet achieve enhanced upper arm contours, SculpSure laser-based non-invasive procedure can provide an effective solution.

SculpSure can successfully reduce stubborn fat deposits in areas such as the lower tummy, abdomen, flanks, hips, inner and outer thighs, and upper arms. Fantastic, judicious, and board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides SculpSure procedure to patients in Las Vegas, NV, and surrounding cities and suburbs in this area of The Silver State.

 

Convenience and Comfort

Unlike plastic surgery or even several non-surgical procedures, SculpSure treatment takes very little time to achieve the desired aesthetic goals. Up to four laser applicators can be used at one time to address an area such as the upper arms. The treatment session can be completed in no more than 25 minutes.

SculpSure procedure causes no significant discomfort, and does not require even local or topical anesthetic. The patient can sit comfortably in a recliner and read a book, use the mobile phone, or just take a nap while the treatment provider addresses the targeted fatty tissue in the upper arms.

The treatment can be performed in the provider’s office. No specific downtime or recovery period is involved. A patient may even receive the upper arm fat reduction treatment during lunch hour from work, and simply go back to their workplace after the treatment session.

 

How does it Work?

The SculpSure applicators will release low level laser energy into the upper arm area, causing controlled heating in the targeted fat and subcutaneous tissue. The fat cells will be disrupted and will begin to melt at the raised temperatures. A unique in-built skin cooling system will help maintain the outer skin at a comfortable temperature while the fat cells are being treated.  

The disrupted fat cells will gradually exit from the body through the patient’s natural metabolic system, revealing slimmer upper arm contours in a few weeks. Up to 24 percent reduction in excess fat, measuring circumference and thickness, can be achieved in the upper arms with SculpSure treatment.

 

Results

SculpSure treatment may be completed in one to three sessions, depending on the amount of excess fat to be removed from the upper arms and the patient’s personal cosmetic goals. Each fat reduction session will be spaced about six weeks apart. The patient will experience noticeable results within a few weeks to a few months after the treatment.

Studies have shown that more than 90 percent of treated patients achieve satisfactory results with SculpSure body sculpting treatment. Results are more natural looking and sustainable as they develop gradually from within. SculpSure procedure also promotes the production of fresh collagen and elastin fibers in the upper arm area, leading to generation of youthful and healthy tissue over time.

The patient should maintain a healthy diet and active lifestyle to extend the results of SculpSure in the long run. Profound and astute cosmetic surgeon Dr. Richards receives patients from Las Vegas, NV, and nearby areas for SculpSure upper arm fat reduction.

SculpSure is the world’s first non-invasive body contouring procedure cleared by the FDA for fat reduction in the flanks and abdomen. The procedure is ideally suited for people who want to avoid cosmetic surgery and yet achieve a slimmer and more sculpted body. During the initial consultation, the treatment provider will educate the patient about all aspects of SculpSure.

Some providers may like to present SculpSure body contouring before and after photographs before the patient. This will give a fair idea of the potential effectiveness of this treatment.

Fantastic, cutting edge, and board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides SculpSure non-invasive body sculpting procedure to patients in Las Vegas, NV, and surrounding communities across the horizon.

 

What are SculpSure Before and After Pictures?

Before and after pictures in case of SculpSure non-invasive body contouring treatment refer to a pair or group of images belonging to a past patient who has received the same procedure with successful results. The images include pictures taken prior to the procedure and after the procedure at a time when all the treatment sessions are completed and full effects of body contouring have been established.

Just like any plastic surgery procedure, the provider will ensure in case of SculpSure that the photographs are obtained with the express consent of the patient and presented before new patients in an appropriate manner. The patient’s identity may be kept confidential as per the norm. The provider’s only goal in this exercise is to use these photos as an educational aid to explain to new patients about the aesthetic benefits of SculpSure.

 

Advantages

SculpSure is a laser-based non-surgical body contouring procedure. A new patient may have concerns about how successfully the procedure can help eliminate unwanted fat pockets in the abdomen and flanks, or whether it will meet their personal cosmetic goals.

Some patients may only need limited fat reduction, while others may require substantive fat removal in multiple sites. In each case, the patient will be better placed to make the right choices when they have access to SculpSure before and after photos. Experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Richards receives patients from Las Vegas, NV, and other areas of this part of southeast Nevada for SculpSure body contouring.

What really has changed the game is digital technology which will be mentioned down below as well briefly. It just needs to be emphasized that digital technology has changed the game and the plastic surgery industry has embraced it. You can see on the website of Dr. Richards all those before and after pictures of all those procedures which helps so many patients make salient decisions without getting anyone else involved.

In the age of social media and sharing, some things should still remain private.

 

Keeping Realistic Expectations

In any aesthetic procedure, the best patient satisfaction levels are often achieved in cases where the patient has a positive frame of mind, clear cosmetic goals and realistic expectations. Therefore, a treatment provider may prefer to provide SculpSure before and after photos at the very outset so that the patient knows exactly what the procedure can or cannot do for them.

SculpSure is not a weight loss procedure. Patients should review as many before and after photos as possible to gain a clear perspective. Patients with realistic expectations will be able to appreciate the final outcomes in a better way and feel happy about their new sculpted figure.

 

Website Photos

The treatment provider may choose to provide SculpSure before and after photos on their practice website which Dr. Richards does not have right now but any patient may be able to see them during the consultation. This way new patients can conveniently access the photos even before they are ready to visit the provider’s office for a SculpSure consultation but in this case, the patient may have to call in and see the before and after pictures during the consultation.

But with all those before and after pictures on the site, any patient can detect the caliber of Dr. Richard’s work.
