Skin Resurfacing

Sun exposure and the natural aging process can impact the way your skin looks and feels. If you’re bothered by wrinkles, uneven coloring, rough texture, and thinning skin, the experienced team at Q the Medical Spa at Lindsay House offers effective skin rejuvenation with fractional laser skin resurfacing treatments in Rochester, NY.  These treatments can enhance your skin’s coloring, strength, and elasticity to help it look better than it has in years.

Candidates for Laser Skin Resurfacing

Ideal candidates for fractional CO2 laser resurfacing are individuals with fine lines or wrinkles, textural changes from sun damage, blotchiness, acne scars, or age spots. We use these treatments, which are safe and effective on almost any skin type, to renew the skin on the following areas:

  • Face
  • Décolletage
  • Hands

We offer nonsurgical skin tightening with Ultherapy® for even more dramatic facial rejuvenation.

How It Works

Our Phoenix 15 fractional CO2 laser distributes the energy in an even pattern to safely and effectively deliver heat into the subdermal layers of the skin stimulating the production of collagen. The CO2 laser treatment can be tailored to your specific needs and cosmetic goals.

What to Expect

At Q the Medical Spa, all laser treatments are administered by highly trained registered nurses versus unlicensed medical professionals.  Depending on the area being treated, a topical anesthetic is applied to the area to make the procedure more comfortable. Any other discomfort is minimal and generally tolerable.  Using precise, controlled short pulsing laser beams in a rapid scanning pattern, a thin outer layer of skin cells is removed, stimulating the growth of new skin cells.

Laser Skin Resurfacing Recovery

After your treatment, expect your skin to be swollen and red.  There may also be a small amount of bleeding for the first several hours. We will provide you with an Avène® post-laser healing kit to aid in the healing process.  For facial treatments, plan to be away from work for 5 days for healing purposes.  Exercise or increasing your heart rate must be avoided for one week.  Some clients experience a mild burning sensation similar to sunburn in treated areas.  The skin may also feel tight. It is important that the skin stay covered at all times the first few days with the ointment that is applied at the end of the procedure.  Swelling and redness will begin to subside on the third day after treatment.

Laser Skin Resurfacing Results

Approximately 1 to 2 weeks after your laser skin treatment, you will notice your skin becoming visibly smoother, healthier, and younger looking.  This is because old skin cells will be replaced with newer ones.  Wrinkles, fine lines, sun spots, acne scars and other discolorations will begin to fade or disappear.  The process can take up to 6 months.
