Dr. Tiffany McCormack is the director of a practice offering plastic surgery in Reno and the Lake Tahoe area. A board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. McCormack says new technology available at her practice can be ideal for women on-the-go, particularly mothers, in need of quicker procedures requiring less recovery time. While offering a full range of the common cosmetic procedures, McCormack Plastic Surgery is announcing several non-invasive alternatives that can allow patients to return to a normal routine in less time than typical plastic surgery procedures.
The Lumenis® Light Sheer Duet system is making laser hair removal in Reno and around the country a virtually pain-free process that can often meet patients’ goals in fewer sessions. The top-of-the-line high speed permanent hair reduction system is designed to make the procedure more comfortable and more effective, often providing an 80-90% reduction in unwanted hair for all skin types and most hair colors. The laser system is known for its comfort, and is typically performed without a topical anesthetic as it gently penetrates the hair follicle to discourage growth at the root. Dr. McCormack says treatment times can be reduced by 75% in some cases when compared to the typical laser hair removal procedures, saving valuable time for patients.
In addition to the new laser hair removal system, Dr. McCormack says laser skin resurfacing in Reno now requires minimal recovery time with the ActiveFX™ and DeepFX™ fractional skin resurfacing procedures offered at her practice. The new laser system provides non-surgical skin rejuvenation and skin tightening by stimulating healthy skin cells and collagen, which provides a more youthful appearance and smoother skin texture. Both laser procedures are designed to deliver results after one treatment—where other procedures may require four or five sessions—which speeds up recovery, with downtime typically averaging about four to seven days.
Dr. McCormack says one of the newest aesthetic enhancement techniques available serves as an alternative to traditional liposuction in Reno. The Zeltiq™ Cool Sculpting™ procedure uses advanced cooling technology called cryolipolysis to improve the body contour. The Cool Sculpting™ method is a new, non-invasive way to reduce fat cells gently and effectively. During the procedure, an applicator delivers precise cooling to target areas, which causes fat cells to begin the process of natural cell removal mimicking the body’s normal metabolic processes. Because there is no need for needles or surgical incisions, pain medications or anesthesia, there is no need for recovery time. Most patients return to their routines on the same day as the procedure, while a reduction in the treated areas is typically visible within two to four months as the damaged fat cells are broken down and naturally digested.
Dr. Tiffany McCormack says she understands that cosmetic surgery is a significant decision, concerning not only how a patient looks and feels, but also how the process will affect each patient’s everyday life. And by providing technologically-advanced, non-invasive procedures that require less recovery time, Dr. McCormack says she can individualize any cosmetic treatment plan to meet the needs of patients, including women and moms on-the-go looking to refine their natural beauty.
