Quantum Face is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that removes unwanted fat, firms and tightens skin, and adds sculpted definition to the face and neck. If aging or other conditions have left you feeling less like yourself, Quantum Face can restore a visage that exceeds your expectations with minimal downtime.
Like the other proprietary QuantumBody treatments that Dr. Joshua Baker has developed, this procedure combines the best of today’s most innovative and effective aesthetic treatments. What truly sets QuantumFace apart from other anti-aging and contouring procedures is that it is minimally invasive. There are no scalpels, no tell-tale scars to conceal, no extensive recovery time, and no reason to settle for anything less.

About Neck and Facial Rejuvenation
As we age, things do start to head south. What once was tight and firm is now feeling a little loose and lined. Areas that used to have elegant angles are a little more amorphous. What happened?
The components that make our skin firm and tight include collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, among others. Collagen is key and makes up the bulk of the matrix under the surface of our skin. Unfortunately, the amount of collagen in our dermis decreases with age. Heading deeper into the layers of our skin, we find the hypodermis, which is mostly made up of fat, and also changes with age. The fat that gives us plump cheeks and voluminous lips decreases over the years, while the fat that hangs around our midsection increases. (1)
One of the most dreaded features of aging isn’t wrinkles, it’s submental fat, also known as double chin or “turkey waddle.” It’s often genetic and resistant to diet and exercise. In fact, according to a survey conducted by The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, 73% of the 7,322 people surveyed said they were bothered by excess fat under their chin and neck. (2)
But just because it’s natural doesn’t mean we have to like it! Everyone deserves to feel their very best, regardless of their age. Today’s aesthetic procedures and technology let us do just that. There’s no shortage of facial rejuvenation procedures and products available today. At a certain point, creams just won’t cut it. Today, there’s a better way: QuantumFace.
What Does QuantumFace Do?
QuantumFace works underneath the skin to tighten and contour by targeting the very components that lead to the appearance of aging, all through entry points the size of the tip of a pen.
QuantumFace starts by using the latest liposuction technology to gently remove submental fat and the fat along the jawline. Unlike traditional liposuction, Quantum Body’s liposuction technology utilizes a robotically controlled, ultra-thin cannula to gently and precisely remove fat. This advanced accuracy allows Dr. Baker to sculpt youthful contours. Patients are able to enjoy better jawline definition, the restored angles of their chin, and the appearance of a lifted neck.
One of the biggest issues with fat removal is that it does nothing to address the lax skin that is left when a volume of fat is removed. When you also factor in the loose skin that accompanies the aging process, it’s no wonder that until now, patients were content to have the extra skin surgically removed, and deal with the resulting scars and long surgical recovery. This was not acceptable to Dr. Baker, who embarked on his medical vocation at an impressively young age, knew that there had to be a better way.
After unwanted fat is removed, QuantumFace’s next task is to tighten the skin for a firmer, more youthful neck and face. QuantumFace applies radiofrequency energy beneath the skin.
This energy creates a thermal effect that causes the existing collagen to thicken and contract, drawing the skin inwards and upwards. It also signals the body to initiate its healing abilities. (3) The treated area is triggered to produce new collagen, blood vessels, and elastin for thicker, firmer, tighter, and healthier skin.

Personal Consultation at The Retreat
At your consultation appointment, you’ll meet face to face with Dr. Baker. Together, you’ll discuss your lifestyle and facial aesthetic goals. Dr. Baker will review your medical history, and carefully examine your facial structure to create a treatment approach that’s tailored just to you.
To learn more about everything that goes on at our beautiful offices in Rockwall, follow The Retreat’s blog.
Communication is key at The Retreat, so you’ll arrive knowing exactly what to expect, and Dr. Baker will review the details of your procedure with you before he begins. Patients will be administered the appropriate local anesthesia to remain comfortable while the Quantum Face procedure is performed. Small circular entry points are created to accommodate the liposuction cannula. After the necessary amount of unwanted fat is removed to create streamlined contours to the neck, jawline, and chin, the delicate probe of the skin tightening device is inserted into the same small openings, eliminating the need for additional incisions. Dr. Baker will pass the probe under the areas of loose skin. The radiofrequency waves then create the essential thermal effect to tighten and firm the skin of the neck and face.
Recovery and Results
You’ll be given instructions on exactly what to do before and after your Quantum procedure. However, because Quantum Face is able to contour and tighten using advanced and gentle liposuction techniques, and only requires small entry points, recovery only takes days instead of the painful weeks of recovery associated with face and neck lift procedures! And best of all, the benefits don’t stop there. Although you’ll enjoy some results immediately, the best is yet to come! As your skin continues to produce vital collagen in the following weeks, you’ll notice a continual improvement. Studies have proven that after RF skin tightening, skin contraction was significant at 6 weeks, but it continued past twelve weeks! (4)
Your Quantum Face procedure is designed to address your individual aesthetic desires. The cost of Quantum Face varies depending on the details that make each face unique, and the extent of the work to be done. You’ll receive an accurate estimate of what your treatment’s price will be during your personal consultation with Dr. Baker. The Retreat offers specials, discounts, and financing options so that all of our patients can look good, and feel good about doing so.
What is QuantumFace?
QuantumFace is a neck and facial rejuvenation system that is available exclusively at The Retreat Restorative and Aesthetics. This ground-breaking system was developed by Dr. Joshua Baker, and combines fat removal with skin tightening techniques. The result is a more youthful appearance obtained with a single, minimally-invasive procedure.
How does QuantumFace tighten skin?
The Quantum procedure uses radio frequency energy applied under the surface of the skin. This creates a thermal effect that improves the quality of collagen – the essential building block of firm youthful skin, and a crucial component that decreases with age. A delicate probe emits the RF waves to heat the treatment area and cause collagen fibers to contract and thicken, causing the skin to tighten. Additionally, this heat stimulates the body’s natural healing reaction, which allows it to generate additional collagen for continual improvement that lasts weeks after the treatment.
Is QuantumFace safe?
QuantumFace is in fact safer than many facial rejuvenation procedures. QuantumFace can be performed under local anesthesia, eliminating many of the risks associated with general anesthesia. Unlike face and neck lift surgeries, QuantumFace is minimally invasive. This means that no incisions or sutures are required, which reduces the risk of infection that accompanies surgical procedures during and after their completion.
