Many people are keen to enhance their physical appearance with modern aesthetic techniques, but not every individual may be ready to undergo cosmetic surgery. Surgery may permanently alter the shape, which may not be acceptable to some, while some others may not prefer to invest the kind of time and cost it may involve. However, it is possible to tighten loose skin, and firm up certain areas of the body without plastic surgery procedures.
This is where a reputed and experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Suzanne Quardt (Dr. Q) has developed a system called Re-Q-venation that helps patients achieve desired aesthetic outcomes without surgery. Re-Q-venation procedures are ideal for people who wish to take smaller steps rather than opting straightaway for surgery to maintain their appearance. Facelift and tummy tuck are among the popular procedures that Dr. Q can perform without surgery for her patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and surrounding communities.
As a dedicated cosmetic surgeon herself, Dr. Q understands the intricacies of facial anatomy, and has created innovative non-surgical solutions for facelift for patients who wish to avoid surgery. With Re-Q-venation techniques, she is able to provide significant lifting to the face, and catalyze the production of fresh collagen in the deeper layers of the facial skin for long-lasting facelift results.
One of the most effective techniques that Dr. Q recommends is Ulthera, which is an ultrasound-based non-invasive procedure. The treatment is useful for patients who are concerned about signs of aging appearing on the face, and need preventative care. With Ulthera, such patients will usually experience marvelous results within 90 days, with almost no downtime involved.
Liquid facelift is another innovative procedure that is a part of Re-Q-venation. Patients may choose this option to achieve facial skin tightening and volumizing without cosmetic surgery. Dr. Q may recommend this treatment to suitable candidates among her patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and nearby locations.
Liquid facelift involves multiple non-surgical solutions such as Botox or Dysport, along with dermal fillers such as Juvederm or Radiesse. The procedure can help reduce wrinkles, erase laugh lines, lift the brows, and fill in facial depressions.
Lasers and Chemical Peels
Certain laser treatments and chemical peels can be provided as a part of Re-Q-venation to reverse advanced signs of aging without plastic surgery. Chemical peels and lasers such as Ultrapulse CO2 can tighten loose skin and reduce the impact of the wrinkles significantly. Recovery time can be slightly longer with these treatments, but it is still lesser compared to most surgical options.
CoolSculpting is a revolutionary non-surgical fat reduction technique that Dr. Q may recommend as a substitute for tummy tuck surgery. The technique involves targeting of stubborn fat pockets using a controlled cooling process. Unwanted fat cells will disintegrate with this non-invasive technique, and gradually get eliminated from the body.
Thermage is another innovative fat reduction technique, which involves treatment with radio frequency energy to tighten loose skin and shrink fat cells. Three to five inches of waist loss can be achieved with this technique.
