Worth the price tag if you want LED at its most powerful in a home device


A powerful LED device that gives noticeable results in minutes


The serum does not live up to the device's high standards

Quasar claims that its MD Plus ($795) is a premium product and, after using it regularly for several months, I would agree. This is a powerful LED tool that gives visible results – plumping and wrinkle smoothing – after just three minutes per treated area.

Whether Quasar MD really is four times stronger than competitor devices, I cannot say. However, it is certainly powerful and it makes Quasar once more a standout in the industry.

Why do I say “once more”? Well, I bought my first LED device about four years ago after much research. It was a Baby Quasar. For a year or so, I was convinced that I had one of the best LED devices for the price. But lower cost competitors were soon to jostle Baby Quasar from its perch and mine started to gather dust while I gravitated to LED devices with more features: blue and green in addition to red, and eventually to ultrasonic and LED. Quasar eventually fought back by getting FDA approval for its devices and souping them them. Baby Quasar is now Baby Quasar Plus ($399) and is 25% more powerful than the old version.

Quasar MD is also supposed be 50% stronger than Baby Q. Actually, it turns out that it can target a surface area that is 50% larger than the Baby Q. The wavelengths are exactly the same for both devices. There are four in all and they are 610nm, 640nm, 660nm and 850nm. I don't know of another device that goes up to 850nm. Quasar MD has red, amber and near-infrared light integrated in one panel. Red and infrared lights are helpful for wrinkles, restoring plumpness, rosacea and broken veins. I have never quite gotten to the bottom of what amber LED light does. You can read more on how LED light works in my post How LED Light Therapy Works as an Anti-Ager for Skin.

I must admit that for some time I ignored the Quasar Anti-Aging Serum that came with my Quasar MD device and costs $80 if bought separately. Potions and lotions packaged with devices are often disappointing and my hopes were not particularly high for Quasar’s. It turned out to be serviceable, if unremarkable. It claims a 10% concentration of yeast-derived hyaluronic acid, although as my video shows, this is unlikely to be 10% of the entire formula. Quasar serum also boasts 5% Argireline, the peptide that discourages expression lines. In addition, there are antioxidant saccharomyces copper ferment, green tea and ubiquinone.

    Hi Marta!
    I would love to try the Baby Quasar MD or Plus either one! I have used red light LED therapy in the past and am ready to upgrade to this product. I have done extensive research on this line and believe that it is the device that will help with my sagging jawline, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, some sun spots, some hormonal acne on the chin at times and many other signs of aging. I am a devoted "student" In the study of anti-aging and would faithfully use this product and let you know how it's working. I just know the results will be great! I just told my husband last night I was ready to find what would seriously work for my aging skin while I can hopefully still age gracefully. Thank you, Marta, for this amazing opportunity!

    I've been looking in to at home LED light lasers for a while now to combat my fine lines and crow's feet, mild rosacea, and minimal but noticeable to me broken veins. At 38, I am also now noticing the much dreaded skin sagging especially around my neck and jaw area. I feel that I am the perfect age to get excellent results from an at home device such as the Quasar MD plus and hopefully keep me away from the plastic surgeon's office a few more years!

    I've never tried a device for my face, and I am very curious to try, after reading about Marta's experience.
    This is a new territory for me, and I imagine it would be a good addition for my sensitive aging skin. I'd love to test this for my above-mouth wrinkles, which are proliferating despite multiple serums and daily prayer! I can handle knee wrinkles/kninkles (sadly, who's looking?) but there's no hiding my mouth! I have some broken capillaries on my cheeks, near my nose; from sensitivity/photo-damage and MD says it is rosacea (who needs another diagnosis?!) Thanks for considering me.

    I would love to try this product to see if it can help me with broken capillaries, large pores, redness and thickening skin on my nose, caused by rosacea.

    Hi Marta,

    I've been battling severe rosacea (both redness and pustules) for about two years and I can't seem to get to the bottom of the problem. The inflammation appears to travel across my face -- beginning on my cheek, edging toward my jaw (as if my marionette lines weren't noticeable enough, they are frequently dotted with pimples) and chin, and now going across my nose. I'm terrified that I'll end up looking like W.C. Fields. I've been on a skin care regimen recommended by my aesthetician that includes AQ Active Serum and Isun natural products and while this regimen has helped somewhat, it's not enough. I would love to try the Baby Q Plus to see if that can clear up the rosacea so that I'm not mistaken for a sober W.C. Fields.

    I would love to try Quasar MD Plus as I want to upgrade from my Ultra renew. It will definitely help to uplift my jaw line. Thank you.

    I've been eyeing this product for ages and would welcome the opportunity to try it! I've got wrinkles, rosacea, fine lines, and sun spotting, so any and all of these would be something I'd like to test out with the Baby Quasar/serum. Thanks!
