Laser skin resurfacing is an advanced non-surgical procedure to rejuvenate skin appearance and mitigate the effects of aging. Success with laser skin resurfacing procedures involves a combination of the treatment provider’s skills and the state of the art laser technology that is employed at a particular practice.
Dr. Q Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Suzanne Quardt (Dr. Q), is a leading provider of laser skin resurfacing procedure. The medical spa provides cutting edge cosmetic and anti-aging procedures to patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and surrounding locations.
Dr. Q recognizes the importance of next generation laser technology, which is a critical component in the provider’s endeavor to deliver outstanding results. Dr. Q’s goal is to produce highly desirable aesthetic outcomes while preserving the health and well-being of her patients. Therefore, she has chosen to equip Dr. Q Medical Spa with Palomar’s state-of-the-art Artisan™ Aesthetic System.
This advanced technology includes:
2940 Ablative Fractional Laser
This is a powerful laser device well-suited to treat deep wrinkles in the affected areas as well as other severe irregularities of skin texture.
1540 Non-ablative Fractional Laser
This is a gentler alternative to ablative laser options. It does not harm the surrounding healthy tissue whole rejuvenating the wrinkled skin.
MaxG Optimized Light Handpiece
Vascular and pigmented lesions, patches of hyperpigmentation as well as hypopigmentation can be treated with this unique device.
How it Works
The multi wavelength platform of Artisan is cleared by the FDA. It is designed to treat aging and sun damaged skin in a precise and targeted manner. The laser beam penetrates into the deeper skin layers, eliminating damaged skin cells in a gentle manner and triggering the natural healing process in the body. Fresh collagen production is initiated in the body to restore firmer, smoother, and more youthful looking skin.
The combined fractional ablative and non-ablative laser skin resurfacing treatment approach of the Artisan is, in fact, the first of its kind to have received clearance from the FDA. The procedure combines the application of both ablative and non-ablative fractional lasers during the same treatment session.
Dr. Q can customize a complete skin rejuvenation regimen for her patients using these advanced laser technologies. Dr. Q Medical Spa receives patients from Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and nearby areas.
