As an experienced cosmetic surgeon, she understands the need of some of her patients in Palm Springs and Palm Desert to avoid surgery and opt for non-surgical solutions. She makes sure that the latest and most effective non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures are provided to her patients in a safe and friendly environment.

Botox and Dysport

Many patients wish to reduce wrinkles and fine lines from the face without having to undergo a plastic surgery procedure. In such cases, Dr. Q may recommend Botox or Dysport as effective FDA approved anti-aging treatments for the face. This treatment involves injecting the wrinkle-causing muscle directly with the medication through thin needles. The targeted muscle immediately goes into a state of temporary relaxation, and the wrinkle fades away or disappears completely. The biological agent used in both Botox and Dysport is botulinum toxin, which is one of the most powerful neurotoxins known to man.

Botox was approved by the FDA for reduction of frown lines from the forehead in 2002. Ever since then, it has remained one of the most popular cosmetic anti-aging facial treatments for people who wish to avoid cosmetic surgery. Botox has recently earned FDA’s approval also for the reduction of crow’s feet around the eyes. Dysport has yet to gain this approval, but both treatments are proven and effective for the reduction or removal of crow’s feet. Dr. Q offers both options to her patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert and surrounding communities. Results with both treatments may last for around three to four months in most cases.

Dermal Fillers

A number of highly effective facial fillers, also known as cosmetic dermal fillers or soft tissue fillers are available today that have been approved by the FDA for the reduction of wrinkles, facial folds and lines. As an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Q understands the need of some of her patients in Palm Springs and Palm Desert to avoid surgery and yet achieve similar aesthetic outcomes for the face. She may recommend some of the most effective dermal fillers to candidates who are fit to receive filler treatment.

Most facial fillers can achieve quick results in terms of adding volume to the face, augmenting certain areas of the face such as lips or cheeks, and reducing or removing deep, moderate and fine wrinkles. Dr. Q provides various filler options, including Restylane and Perlane, Juvederm, Radiesse, Hylaform, Hyalform Plus, and Sculptra Aesthetic. All of these fillers are FDA approved and highly effective for cosmetic rejuvenation of the face. Dr. Q combines her training and experience as a cosmetic surgeon to ensure best injectable filler treatments for her patients.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

It is possible to reduce conspicuous signs of aging from the face and other anomalies such as uneven skin tone, rough texture, wrinkles, and fine lines and skin laxity with the help of a conservative, non-surgical laser technique called laser skin resurfacing.

Dr. Q’s office is equipped with Palomar’s Artisan Multi-Wavelength Platform, which is a state of the art technology to deliver highly effective results for facial skin rejuvenation. Different patients have different aesthetic needs and goals, and the Artisan system is one of the most effective technologies available to achieve optimal results without causing damage to the health of the outer skin’s surface.
