Skin resurfacing options at Desert Medical Rejuvenation include Laser resurfacing, RF microneedling, PRP microneedling plus a brand new unique, innovative non-invasive cosmetic procedure called PLEXR® Plasma Pen that uses pulsating beams of energy to remove damaged skin cells one layer at a time.

The PLEXR® Plasma Pen does NOT involve needle sticks for blood plasma as the name would suggest, it is an energy device that works at a very superficial epidermal level and significantly tightens, lifts, resurfaces, and regenerates the skin by boosting the natural production of collagen and elastin. The PLEXR® Plasma Pen offers the advantage of treating limited areas of the face or neck without having to treat an entire large surface area.

The treatment is great for addressing puffy or baggy under-eyes, hooded eyelids, creepy skin in face and neck, as well as facial wrinkles and lines. It is also used to quickly eliminate skin blemishes, such as milia, skin tags, age spots, acne scars, pigmentation, and other issues.

It is also an ideal procedure for people desiring softer, clearer, youthful-looking skin in precisely limited areas of the face and neck with very minimal downtime. Based on the condition of the patient's skin, the treatment will be adjusted accordingly. Call our office for a consultation with our staff in Rancho Mirage, CA.

Cleared by the Food and Drug Administration, the PLEXR® Plasma Pen is considered the next generation of anti-aging technology for promoting collagen production. Using plasma energy, the pen's energy fibroblasts the skin to make microabrasions that heal from new collagen and elastin growth to produce firmer and more youthful skin.

The PLEXR® Plasma Pen is a very mild superficial form of skin resurfacing that avoids potentially serious complications from other deeper resurfacing modalities. 

The end result is skin redness, mild swelling and multiple tiny superficial dots which heal and scab off within 3-5 days. Other than a soothing skin moisturizer for comfort and a mineral sunblock, no post-care medications are necessary. The quick recovery from a PLEXR® Plasma Pen procedure is unlike the recovery time for a deeper laser session may last anywhere form 1-3 weeks depending on the intensity of the session.

All patients need to limit their sun exposure following their PLEXR® Plasma Pen resurfacing session and apply sun protection frequently. It's important to avoid interfering with the recovery process to prevent scarring and protect your skin from environmental exposure. Once the scabs flake off, your skin should feel smoother while also appearing rejuvenated, younger, and clearer.

Although the procedure is generally comfortable, for those patients with very high levels of anxiety or low levels of tolerance to pain, we offer the use of PRO-NOX®, a device that delivers a mixture of inhaled Oxygen/Nitrous which numbs the patient's sensations for several minutes, enough to allow the doctor to complete the procedure. The patient recovers 100% at the end of the procedure. 

I found Dr. Q while researching online and I had just been considering that it was time for skin care and some anti-aging magic. I decided to try this office after calling a few different doctors with questions and I was impressed with the friendliness and willingness of his staff to answer my questions and to quell my concerns. They were awesome! I made an appointment on that call and stopped searching.My first appointment went so wonderfully!  I was so impressed with Dr. Q. He explained everything as he advised me and seemed to know exactly what I needed to give me a fresh and natural look and that is exactly what I got. I get so many compliments on looking young and I love the results. These small changes boosted my confidence immensely and look so natural.Today was my fifth appointment. I have since added a few more services and the techniques used help me defy my age. I look VERY natural. The staff all know me by name, call to check on me and I’m so comfortable coming here.If anyone reading this is looking for a highly skilled doctor and staff who treat you like family, this is the doctor and staff I am 100% comfortable recommending to anyone. Dr. Q is an artist. I couldn’t be more pleased and I plan to come back here every time I need a boost in confidence and self-care. I love this doctor and his staff!

I Love Desert Medical Rejuvenation!

I have been a patient of Dr. Art Quintanilla’s for several years. My treatments have included Botox, Juvéderm, lip fillers, and facials to name a few. It is always a pleasure to see Dr Art and his amazing staff, especially Missy. On the phone Missy is most accommodating when scheduling my appointments. In the office, without exception, I always receive a warm and friendly welcome from her, and an offer of "can I get you something to drink"?  Dr. Art is incredible and has a keen eye and magical hands. He checks and double checks himself, and you never feel rushed by him or his assistants. I have experienced only positive outcomes from their expertise and exemplary skills, and I know that I will be comfortable and well cared for. Also, depending on the procedure, that I’ll be given clear instructions for home care and optimal healing, as well as ice, arnica, or antibiotic ointment to minimize bruising and eliminate infection. The office is lovely, and immaculately clean and neat. I am looking forward to my next appointment for skin resurfacing due to sun damage. There isn’t a medical procedure I wouldn’t trust Dr. Art and his staff to perform.

Dr. Quintanilla and his staff are professional and recommend the products people really need instead of just trying to upsell. He spends time with me and talks about different options and how to make my skin better. Dr. Quintanilla really cares about his patients and I highly recommend him for skin care.
