Your Botox Consultation

Your Botox Consultation | Palm Desert Medical Spa | Rancho MirageBotox is a time-tested non-surgical anti-aging procedure for people who want to mitigate the appearance of fine lines and mild wrinkles on the face without the need for cosmetic surgery. According to the figures published by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), Botox currently ranks as the most popular cosmetic non-surgical treatment in the US.

During the Botox consultation, the treatment provider will discuss various aspects related to the injectable procedure. The provider’s first goal should be to educate the patient about appropriate treatment options and help them make a well-considered choice. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Suzanne Quardt (Dr. Q) provides Botox to patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and surrounding communities.

 

Assessing the Patient’s Requirements

The Botox injection provider will utilize the consultation opportunity to assess the reasons why the patient wants to undergo Botox injections, and what exactly about their facial appearance may be bothering them. If the patient is worried about minor facial wrinkles and fine lines caused due to overactive underlying muscles, they may suggest Botox as a suitable treatment option.

But if the patient suffers from facial volume loss or has significant sagging skin, and wants a long-term solution with more substantive results, they may require a facelift plastic surgery or another procedure instead of Botox. At the time of the consultation, the provider will apprise the patient about the label and non-label uses of Botox, the expected longevity of results, and the potential risks and costs involved.

 

Developing Expectations

Sometimes the Botox treatment provider may like to present Botox before and after pictures during the initial consultation. These pictures will help the patient develop reasonable expectations, and make them see what Botox can or cannot do for them.

Patients with realistic expectations typically make good candidates for Botox, and the consultation is an opportunity for the treatment provider to ensure this. The provider may also show testimonials of past Botox patients to give an insight to the patient about the experience of others with this procedure.

 

Determining Candidacy

Botox is not for everyone. The provider will determine the patient’s candidacy for Botox injections during the consultation process. They will ask whether the patient has received Botox injections within the last six months, whether they have a history of skin allergies, and whether they are pregnant or nursing.

The provider will also examine the facial skin elasticity, weakness in the forehead muscles, droopiness around the eyelids, and look for any signs of untreated infection in the facial skin. If the patient suffers from volume loss in the mid-face or other facial areas, dermal filler injections along with Botox may be recommended.

 

Other Instructions

Smokers will be required to avoid smoking for a certain period prior to the injections. If they are currently using blood thinner drugs, the provider may ask them to stop it for a few days in consultation with the physician.

Post-treatment care instructions will be given to the patient during the consultation. Judicious and committed cosmetic surgeon Dr. Q receives patients from Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and other cities and neighborhoods around this major city in North Florida for Botox.

Botox Risks and Safety

Botox Risks and Safety | Palm Desert Medical Spa | Rancho MirageThe sustained popularity of Botox as an anti-aging injectable treatment for the face arises from the fact that it avoids almost all the risks and complications that are typically associated with a facial cosmetic surgery. However, it is still vital to be aware of the potential risks and side effects of Botox in order to make a well-considered decision.

The main component of Botox is botulinum toxin type A, which is one of the most potent biological agents. Botox uses this neurotoxin in extremely diluted quantities, but if it is administered wrongly or in wrong volumes, it can lead to significant side effects.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Suzanne Quardt (Dr. Q) provides Botox and various other aesthetic procedures to patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and other cities and neighborhoods in this part of the country.

 

Potential Side Effects

Some of the side effects that may potentially occur in the treated areas following the injectable procedure will include inflammation, redness, swelling and bruising, bleeding, and infection. In rare cases, the patient may develop an allergic reaction to Botox. In case of rare events such as breathing difficulties or dizziness, the patient should quickly get in touch with the Botox treatment provider.

Additional side effects of this injectable treatment may include twitching, neck pain, headache, muscle spasms, dry mouth, fatigue, numbness and droopy eyelids. Muscle immobility in the treated areas may cause numbness in a few patients. If the Botox treatment was not effective, the patient may experience muscle spasms.

Although the risks are much lower than that of a plastic surgery procedure, Botox can still pose severe risks if the injections are administered wrongly or in wrong volumes. If the medication spreads beyond the affected site, it can have an adverse outcome on the surrounding tissue. For example, if it is injected around the upper lids or between the brows, it may cause temporary droopiness in the eyelids.

 

Other Complications

Botox may cause the following complications in rare situations:

  • Cockeyed brows
  • Crooked or drooling smile
  • Flu like symptoms
  • Excessive tearing
  • Vision problems
  • Muscular weakness
  • Hindrance in swallowing or speaking
  • Poor bladder control

Experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Q receives patients from Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and other communities and cities across the horizon for Botox injections.

 

Who should Avoid Botox?

People with one or more of the following characteristics should avoid Botox treatment:

  • Known allergy to botulinum toxin
  • Experienced side effects of Botox in the past
  • Having an untreated infection in the affected site
  • Suffering from ALS, myasthenia gravis, Lambert-Eaton syndrome or another disease that affects muscles or nerves
  • Chronic breathing or asthma problem
  • Bleeding tendency
  • Having undergone a facial surgery recently
  • Weak forehead muscles
  • Unable to avoid smoking or blood thinners for a few days
  • Pregnant or breastfeeding women

A responsible Botox treatment provider will carefully choose the candidates for Botox injections. The patient should avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area for 24 hours to achieve safe and desirable results with Botox.

Botulinum Toxin (Botox) Candidates

Botulinum Toxin (Botox) Candidates | Palm Springs Medical SpaBotulinum toxin type A, popularly known as Botox, is a widely accepted injection procedure to mitigate facial signs of aging for people who want to avoid cosmetic surgery. Botulinum toxin is a highly potent biological substance, and it is vital for a treatment provider to recommend this treatment only to the right candidates who can benefit from it.

A committed treatment provider will carefully evaluate the patient’s fitness to undergo Botox injections before going ahead with the procedure. Sometimes it may be a good idea to use Botox in combination with another non-invasive or surgical procedure to achieve comprehensive outcomes. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Suzanne Quardt (Dr. Q) provides Botox to patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and surrounding locations.

 

Candidacy

An appropriate candidate for Botox treatment will typically be a person in the age group of 18 to 65, who is in good physical health and does not have a history of neuromuscular disorders. The candidate should have a need to mitigate or eliminate mild to moderate facial wrinkles and fine lines with Botox, while being full aware of the potential risks it involves.

People who want to avoid facial plastic surgery due to various reasons can make good candidates for Botox, provided they are willing to accept a treatment with temporary results. The treatment may have to be repeated in the future for extended benefits. Busy mothers and working individuals are typically more inclined to choose Botox because it involves minimal to no downtime and has a much lesser risk of complications compared to a surgery.

Younger people who want to prevent the onset of facial aging signs or delay the appearance of more obvious wrinkles and lines can also be good candidates for Botox. A lot of candidates choose Botox just before a social function such as a wedding so that they can have a more youthful looking face in a public gathering.

If a patient suffers from deep facial folds or creases, such as nasolabial folds, they may not be the best candidates for Botox, and should instead choose soft tissue filler injections. Botox is more suited for people who have facial lines caused by overactive muscles, and not due to the loss of elasticity of the soft tissue and skin or loss of facial volume.

A fabulous Botox candidate will have a positive mindset, clear cosmetic goals and realistic expectations. They should clearly understand that the results with Botox may not be as sustainable or dramatic as facial surgery, and should instead focus on the subtle aesthetic enhancements and natural looking results that Botox can deliver.

 

Who should Avoid Botox?

People with one or more of the following conditions may not be suitable candidates for Botox:

  • Allergic to any of the Botox ingredients
  • Suffered side effects in the past from Botox or its variants
  • Suffering from an untreated skin infection in the injection area
  • Having a muscle or nerve disorder

Experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Q receives patients from Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and nearby areas for Botox.

Vaginal Tightening with Labiaplasty Surgery

Vaginal Tightening with Labiaplasty Surgery | Rancho Mirage One of the increasingly popular aesthetic procedures for women today is labiaplasty cosmetic surgery. Women are more willing to seek solutions to improve their sexual aesthetics and restore a more youthful personal look and feel. Innovative surgical labiaplasty techniques have made the procedure more effective and less invasive.

Dr. Suzanne Quardt (Dr. Q) is a board certified plastic surgeon providing a host of aesthetic procedures, both surgical and non-surgical. Dr. Q is an expert in vaginal tightening labiaplasty surgery. Women in Palm Springs, Palm Desert , Rancho Mirage, and surrounding locations have an opportunity to receive this treatment from Dr. Q.

 

 

Vaginal Tightening and Rejuvenation

Vaginal skin and tissue can become loose due to aging, childbirth, heredity or other factors. The external as well as internal structures of the vagina may experience laxity, which can cause physical as well as emotional concerns for a woman. Vaginal rejuvenation plastic surgery procedures can be performed using general or local anesthesia with mild sedation.

Vaginal tightening is usually performed as an outpatient surgery, and will be completed in less than two hours. Either anterior or posterior or both vaginal walls may be tightened during the surgery. The surgeon will rebuild the vaginal structures that give support to the vagina and allow it to contract. The muscle and tissue around the vagina will also be tightened to narrow the vaginal canal and opening to improve contraction.

 

 

Labiaplasty

 

Elongation of the labia may take place over time due to aging factors, childbirth, injury, or illness. The cosmetic surgeon can perform labiaplasty to correct both aesthetic and functional aspects of the labia. Labiaplasty is usually performed to reduce the size and improve the shape of labia minora as well as labia majora. In some cases, the labia minora alone may need improvement.

The surgeon will trim the excess labial tissue to make it tighter. Adequate tissue laxity of the stretchable tissue should be retained before reducing the size to ensure smaller but more natural looking labia. Incisions will be placed in discreet locations and closed with absorbable sutures once the surgery is over. Leading cosmetic surgeon Dr. Q receives patients from Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and nearby areas for labiaplasty.

 

 

Labiaplasty Repair

During the primary labiaplasty, if the blood supply gets injured, the patient may have to receive a labiaplasty repair surgery from a highly trained and experienced plastic surgeon. A few months gap will be required for complete healing following a failed labiaplasty in order to perform repair. Patients choose Dr. Q for labiaplasty because of her advanced expertise, latest training and top track record of success in cosmetic surgery procedures.

The degree of vaginal deformity and the specific labiaplasty revision technique chosen by the surgeon will determine how long the labiaplasty repair procedure will last. It can range from as little as one hour to as many as five hours. Revision procedures are typically more difficult and complex. Patients should ideally choose a fully trained and board certified plastic surgeon in order to achieve stellar, ideal, and impressive outcomes the first time itself.

What is Botox Used for Cosmetically?

Botox Cosmetic Uses | Non-Surgical | Anti-Aging | Palm Desert CAOne of the most common aesthetic concerns for both women and men is the appearance of aging lines on the face. While cosmetic surgery options are available to address facial wrinkles and lines, not every individual is inclined to choose surgery. Botox injectable treatment is a proven, remarkable, and effective alternative in such cases. With Botox, the patient can enjoy a smoother, wrinkle-free face for four to six months with a simple injection procedure.

In 2002, the FDA gave its approval to Botox for cosmetic reduction of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Ever since then, the procedure remained the leading non-surgical facial anti-aging treatment. Millions of women and men benefit every year from Botox Cosmetic injections. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Suzanne Quardt (Dr. Q) provides Botox to patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and surrounding locations.

 

Aesthetic Benefits

Botox was originally approved by the FDA for the cosmetic reduction of frown lines between the brows and on the forehead. In 2013, the FDA further approved Botox for the cosmetic reduction of crow’s feet around the eyes. Botox certified providers also use Botox safely and effectively for non-label aesthetic purposes, such as diminishing wrinkles and lines around the nasal base and other facial areas.

While Botox is highly popular as an independent facial anti-aging procedure, it is also used as a support treatment along with facial cosmetic surgeries such as facelift, brow lift or eyelid lift to create optimal outcomes. Innovative combinations include Botox along with dermal filler injections such as Restylane and Juvederm to perform “liquid facelift” non-surgical procedure. Dr. Q receives patients from Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and nearby areas for Botox facial treatment.

 

Treatment for Specific Facial Areas

A Botox treatment provider may treat fine lines and minor wrinkles in the following specific areas with highly effective outcomes:

 

Eyes

Dynamic wrinkles and lines can occur around the eyes due to repetitive motion of eye muscles and facial expressions. Such lines generally respond very effectively to Botox. The treatment will relax only the overactive, wrinkle forming facial muscles, and the nerves of sensation. Therefore, the patient will not experience any loss of sensation with Botox in the injection sites.

 

Brows

Frowning, laughing, and smiling are common expressions that can create permanent lines between the brows over a period of time. Botox treatment has been specially designed to reduce moderate to severe frown lines in a significant manner. It is equally effective for men who need to reduce the appearance of deep furrows between the brows.

 

Forehead

Aging can cause permanent creases on the forehead, which can make the face appear tired or old. Botox can mitigate the appearance of these lines. Forehead lines are horizontal, which are easier and more effective to treat with Botox.

 

Jaw Contouring

In recent years, Botox treatment experts have been successfully applying Botox to improve jaw contours. Oversized jaw muscles that are used for chewing can make the face look square shaped and awkward. Botox injections can be used at strategic points to create a more oval shaped and natural looking face.

Lip Augmentation and Enhancement Procedure

Lip Augmentation and Enhancement Procedure Lip Augmentation and Enhancement Procedure

Lip Augmentation or Lip enhancement is a form, and sub-type of plastic surgery. This particular form of surgery falls under the larger domain of plastic surgery, but is technically called cosmetic surgery. It is the aesthetic re-structuring of the lips in order to make it more enhanced and supposedly attractive. People generally undergo surgical procedures to gain a perfectly structured pair of lips. The procedure of lip augmentation renders the lips fuller, and supple which is considered to represent the pinnacle of beauty and fertility in most cultures.

Juvederm

In the process of lip augmentation, a cosmetic surgeon typically injects a fluidic substance into the lips, enlarging them in size. The fluidic substance injected into the lips is a type of hyaluronic acid. Specifically Juvederm and Restylane, are the types of acid that are recently the craze amongst cosmetic surgeons for lip enhancements. This process is highly sought after by consumers looking to undergo lip enhancement procedures. It is especially true of the North American market.

Medical clinics, commonly known as medical spas, or aesthetic spas such as Dr. Suzanne Quardt or ‘Dr. Q’ from Dr. Q plastic surgery in Palm Springs, Palm Desert , Rancho Mirage cater to exactly these needs.

Juvederm is the most commonly used fluidic lip implant in North America for the purpose of lip augmentation. The reason behind this is because the implant allows for a more natural look and feel to the consumer. Additionally Juvederm has proven to be completely innocuous to the patients’ general health and well-being. Speech impediments have occurred in the past with other forms of implants like silicone, however, it hasn’t occurred so far in the case of Juvederm.

In the case of Juvederm used as a filler, the process takes about half an hour until completion. During the process, a cosmetic surgeon may inject the filler equally and strategically in properly measured points on the persons lip. This would fill up the lip equally so it may avoid an uneven structure.

The major advantage of a filler or injection is that it is painless as most of the time the filler that is injected acts as a local numbing agent too. This means that there isn’t a need for any additional injections or anesthesia during the process. There is however, a numbing cream applied on the surface of the lips in order to avoid any pain. This is more of a contingency measure.

Another added advantage of juvederm over silicone implants is the fact that there is absolutely no surgical process required. It is very basic, and the implants last between 6 months to over a year depending on various physical factors of the person.

The recovery period for this procedure takes less than 24 hours. However, the time taken for a final and best result of the procedure takes upto a week. Ice packs applied to the lip as frequently as possible hastens the recovery process and enables a better looking result.
