WHAT is Botox?

BotoxNeuromodulators are prescription-strength injectable solutions designed to relax and inhibit the normal functioning of the muscles. Botox®, the most well-known neuromodulator available today, is the perfect non-surgical option for wrinkle reduction and prevention. Botox® minimizes dynamic wrinkle formation by inhibiting the nerve impulses and reducing the contraction of the adjacent facial muscles, especially around the eyes, brow, and mouth. Botox® has proven to be especially effective in minimizing the repeated movement of the brow muscles, resulting in a temporary “brow lift”. Perhaps most importantly, with repeated treatments, Botox® has been shown to slow down the aging process by preventing facial muscle movements that create dynamic wrinkles in the first place!

Neuromodulators like Botox® are an extremely popular option for individuals seeking non-surgical facial rejuvenation, and thousands of practitioners offer them as part of their aesthetic options. Yet despite its safety record, the improper administration of Botox® can lead to devastating medical and aesthetic problems, including visible ripples, shiny skin, and an unnatural “frozen” appearance. At Dr. Q™ Medical Spa, located in Rancho Mirage, CA, Board Certified plastic surgeon Dr. Suzanne Quardt (Dr. Q™) prides herself on her uncompromising concern with patient safety and satisfaction, and you can rest assured that your Botox® facial Re-Q™-venation will be safe and comfortable, leaving you with smooth, youthful skin and a refreshed, well-rested appearance!


Although there are a variety of neuromodulators on the market today, Botox® remains the most well-known and most trusted. In fact, over the past seven years, it has remained the most popular non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment in America: approximately 6.3 million Botox® injections were performed in 2013 alone! And its dramatic results show why Botox® retains its popularity; it has been shown to safely minimize wrinkles and folds by up to 80%. While wrinkle-reduction is the primary benefit of Botox® injections, they can fulfill a wide range of aesthetic goals, treating and correcting a variety of cosmetic concerns, such as:

  • Crow’s feet (fine lines at the corners of the eyes)
  • Eyebrow asymmetry
  • Sagging or creasing of the forehead/brow area
  • Drooping at the corners of the mouth
  • Frown lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Lip creases (upper and lower)
  • Gummy smile
  • Excessive cleft chin or “peach pit” chin
  • Facial scarring
  • Horizontal and vertical neck creases
  • Wrinkling on the décolleté (chest)
  • Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)

Botox® injection treatments can be performed in our comfortable med spa in about 20 minutes, and do not require any anesthesia or post-procedure downtime. You will be amazed at the results you see within the first week (5-7 days, typically) after your treatment, and you will continue to see the           Re-Q™-venating impact of your Botox® treatment for the next 3-7 months. Patients who are interested in amplifying the effects of their treatment may want to supplement their Botox® injection with a dermal filler or ancillary aesthetic enhancement service (i.e. chemical peel, medical grade facial), which can safely be performed at the same time.
