After a long summer spent out in the sun, many men and women struggle with signs of skin damage. Wrinkles and sun spots can quickly appear on your body and make you look much older than you feel. Luckily you can find relief with a variety of treatment options that brighten and repair the skin. From photorejuvenation to laser skin resurfacing, Q the Medical Spa has the tools you need here in Rochester.

Skin Resurfacing

Wrinkles, uneven coloring, and rough texture can develop from exposure to the sun. If you’re looking for a way to enhance your skin’s color and elasticity, skin resurfacing may be right for you. Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing delivers heat to the deeper dermal layers and stimulates the production of collagen. It is commonly used to repair sun damage and blotchiness on the face, décolletage, and hands, but treatment can be tailored to suit your specific needs. 

At Q the Medical Spa, all laser treatments are performed by highly-trained nurses. Thanks to years of experience, our staff can safely improve your skin texture and help you enjoy a bright, renewed complexion.


For men and women who want tighter, more radiant skin, ResurFX fractional laser skin resurfacing delivers results with minimal downtime. This state-of-the-art, FDA-cleared procedure can be used on the face and body to address fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, and uneven skin tone. Much like other types of resurfacing treatments, ResurFX uses lasers to direct heat to the skin’s deep layers. However, instead of using a solid beam like more aggressive lasers, ResurFX uses a fractional laser to deliver tiny, evenly spaced dots of energy to reduce healing time.

Results appear gradually as the skin builds up new collagen. After 1 to 2 weeks, you can enjoy firmer skin and improved texture for around 3 to 4 months.

IPL Photorejuvenation

IPL photorejuvenation is another popular skin enhancement option. The procedure uses intense pulsed light to fix redness, pigmentation issues, or scars that have darkened over time. As the light penetrates the skin, the energy is absorbed by the excess pigment in your brown spots, redness, or scars. This pigment is destroyed and naturally washed out of your body, revealing smoother, evenly colored skin.

Your skin may look sunburned for a few hours after treatment, but no formal downtime is needed afterward. Your results will develop gradually over time as you attend several treatment sessions. 

When combined with proper skin protection—always remember to wear your sunscreen—these treatments give you attractive results you can enjoy for years to come.
