Many patients are desirous of achieving an attractive and youthful appearance, but do not wish to undergo an elective cosmetic surgery procedure. A number of non-surgical treatments are now available for such patients. Results of non-invasive and minimally invasive treatments are effective, but may not last for as long as the surgical outcomes do.
However, these treatments do not involve much downtime and avoid the typical risks and complications that may be associated with a surgery. Dr. Q provides the latest and proven non-surgical procedures for patients in Palm Desert and Palm Springs, who are unable or unwilling to undergo a surgery.
