I have never used the eye goggles once, and I'll bet most people don't. It would be a way to keep the cost down by not including them.


I'm happy with mine too. I use it about three times a week and find it quite relaxing to use whilst watching TV. For those who can't spare the time, maybe the DPL from NCN Skincare is the way to go. I wonder how the specifications of both devices compare - anyone know?


I'm still using mine as well! I use it 2-3 times/week, generally while watching TV.

Well here is a link to todays NY Times article and interview I did on the Baby Q. There was a misquote on my dad being a cattle ranger, he was a cattle RANCHER, but since he just passed away recently I am a little more sensitive. I said a few more good things about the Q that didn't come across I guess.
Boy I sound obsessed with anti-aging and trying new things!!! Maybe I am??
(Thanks Katee, it was fun).

Thanks so much. It's funny because the quote I used on how I use my Baby Q was "I use it at night with no makeup in my pink fuzzy robe, drinking a glass of wine and watching The Sopranos". I guess since I wasn't brave enough to be photographed that way, it felt a little more fake!

A picture like that would have definitely been an attention getter, that's for sure. I'm usually in my shorts and t-shirt when I use BQ. But, it's true test is coming up. I am going to back to Florida and see my sister for the first time since starting my routine with the Baby Q. I anxious to see what her comments will be.

Is anyone using the LED technologies DPL unit? I purchased one but am having second thoughts. I thought it would be best for me since it takes less time. I would love to hear some feedback. I posted on the dpl thread also. Thanks.

Another run on Baby Q and 55 more pages!
I wish I could have been more positive on the full-sized Q, but it just wasn't for me and my sensitive skin. Sad to hear of those of you who are selling your babies and weren't happy for whatever reason. Crying or Very sad
I did mention how I think the Quasar/Baby Q is good for muscle and pain control but this article was more about anti-aging. My hubby loves it on a sore/healing muscle and so do I.
The typo got corrected in the article from ranger to rancher, yeah! My son just thought I was too old to read properly (I swear it was there).
I am off to the Riviera Maya for a week with the hubby for anniversary (23 yrs.) and Im thinking I will pack it as I am sure (even with sunscreen) that I will need it.

After the first day I think you have to register but that's weird it did not pull up. If you go to NY Times and Lifestyle (on Thurs. only) and click on "You can smooth or zap but will the results hit home". My son read it and said "Mom, that is so not you", because he knows I don't wear makeup at all during the week, nor do anything but pull my hair up in a ponytail until the weekend, I am such a tomboy, horse person. But that's why I have it, to be proactive. He left home before I bought my Baby Q so he's never seen it. Happy reading and using the baby Q.

AnnieR, you looked great in that pic. Do you really have to hold the babyQ that close to your skin in real life? Or was that just for the picture?

Also, I saw Tricia's pics, and wow, her results of using the quasar are amazing, too.

I wonder why Katee was not interviewed since she was the one who first raved about this device? How did the NYT find you and Tricia? This is amazing.

Yes AnnieR, you look great in your pic!

I just purchased my baby Quasar today!

I just read through most of the pages of this thread Rolling Eyes and I'm still confused about the botox/fillers. AnnieR says it diminished her botox/fillers whilst Katee says it enhanced her botox/fillers. Confused

I had my botox done 4 weeks ago would it be safe to use the BQ on those areas or better of skipping those which will be hard because I had a lot of areas done, such as forehead and nasal line and lips. Shock

Hi Manon! I really like my Baby Q a lot. I do have fillers and because of AnnieR's posts, I always avoided that area and have had no problems. I figured why chance it. When the filler goes away I'll use it on that area and see if there's a difference. I would recommend avoiding the area though, because it's an expensive mistake to make. Have fun!

Ola! Back from vacation and thought I would answer. the question on the Times and Katee. Bkkgirl-They did ask her, but she didn't have the time, so she referred me. I then referred Scally, since she has a few devices and I know she swears by them objectively and a few others who were more knowledgeable on skincare, peels and such. But the main focus seemed to be the Quasar and the gadgets. The article was fun and a little scary since I am a very private person. It was living outside my box, so it was good for me as a hermit.
Also, I do hold the Baby Q right on my skin like in the picture, but I don't push it into my skin.
Manon-I used the Baby right on the injection site hours after having the injection done as James said it would help on the bruising and swelling. It did alright, took it all away!. If you give the injections time to take, I don't think you will have the problem. As a precaution, I just don't put it on the site at all now. But it is only 3 tiny spots on my 11's and a tiny spot on my left lip line where I got the Juvederm. That line is totally gone now.

I wish I could say Baby Q, but I think it is mostly due to the resty/juvaderm injection and then using the TCA peel method I read about that Scally posted.

BIG RAVE about a new device I just bought in Canada. It is a modular hand held light therapy device for acne and anti-aging. What I found really cool is first it really works and second they are coming out with new treatments and I never have to buy a new unit to add on to my current system.

The Tanda Skincare System has two treatment heads - blue for acne and red for acne and anti-aging. I have had a bad time with adult acne for years and finally decided I couldn't stay on the pill anymore (10+ years) As soon as I went off - BOOM - pimples everywhere, HATED IT.
I want to get pregnant so I didn't want to take any pills for it so when my derm told me about blue light I googled the therapy and up popped this unit.

I have been using it three minutes twice and day and it WORKS... YEAH. What is cool is that I have both applications, acne and skin rejuvenation in one device.

I called and I guess they are a couple weeks from FDA approvals. They already have their Health Canada Licence.

It seems that is the way the market is going... light for use at home. I did hear that some major players like J&J and P&G are coming out to play as well.

you have to check it out Tanda Skincare System.

The amount of time a treatment takes really varies, depending on how you use it. The manufacturer recommends dividing your face in half and then dividing each side into three areas - a total of six areas - then going over each area first with a lower frequency light setting, then a higher for 2 minutes each (the device beeps at 2 minute intervals). Then, you can switch to the higher wave, continuous setting, and use that all over for 4 minutes, concentrating on spots that need extra help. If done that way, a complete treatment lasts about 28 minutes.

My derm's recommendation differed a bit. She knows my skin and also is knowledgeable about the device. I have resilient skin that she says is quite thick (something she says is VERY good, although I have to admit I didn't like the sound of THAT Very Happy ) AND I had just completed a Gentle Waves series. Sooooo, she told me to divide my face (from the eyes down) into two halfs and to do 4 minutes on each side with the high, continues wave frequency (the interval cycle with the continues wave gives you a beep after 4 minutes, as opposed to 2 minutes with the other 2 cycles), then do a final 4 minutes on my forehead (including between my eyes and just under my eyebrows (but not on my eyelids obviously...). Using her method, a treatment takes a total of 12 minutes. She said I could do it everyday if I wanted to, but that after a couple of weeks, she said I'd find that I could make do with every other day if I preferred. She said to keep my eyes closed when moving the device over and just under my eyebrow. The maker recommends wearing protective goggles but she said it isn't necessary. In fact, during the Gentle Waves treatments, again, the manufacturer provides goggles, but ever practitioner I know just has you keep your eyes closed. The treatment is very beneficial to the eye area and the goggles would impede that...

No side effects at all. The only contraindicators mentioned are epilepsy, pregnancy, cortison or steroid use, and cancer fighting drugs.

One thing I don't think I mentioned in my review: I had some broken caps on the sides of my nose, near my nostrils and was thinking about getting them zapped with an IPL treatment. They're gone now Razz

I haven't used the device anywhere on my body yet, but I do think I'm going to start doing my decolletage as well. They DO tell you not to pass the device directly over your thyroid gland. They said that when NASA tested the use of light therapy they thought it might have some mild effect on the thyroid. Apparently the tests, which were extensive, showed no effect, but the manufacturer said they'd still rather NOT pass the device directly over the gland. I concur completely. When it comes to things like that, I'm SUPER cautious....

Hey Sarah, the tingling is normal. The red light stimulates the fibroblasts that produce proteins in the skin (collagen and elastins) as well as increasing your blood circulation... a very healthy and natural way to deliver Oxygen and nutrients to the skin.

What device are you using can I ask. How are you liking the results?

Just loving the Tanda unit.

By the way, the information comes from the Tända Manual as well as some research I did on the web on red light treatments. (633 – 660 nm)

Let me know if you have any other questions. I found a bunch of info on both red and blue light treatments and how they work at a cellular level. Wink

You might find the red light will also ease the pain in your cheek. My mother suffered from a stroke 10 years ago and had constant pain because of damage to her nerves in her face. We used a physio light device (MedX) and she had relief for the fist time in 10 years... it was quite amazing. I know they use the MedX Clinical devices in the US at the Extendicare clinics for pain management as well.
Keep me posted.

Sorry missed a few of your questions then well im using an all red lamp 660mn which i brought off the net its a table top one so i can sit infront of it.I dont do it for long ever night have just increased it to 5mins now was doing it 3-4mins before that. Have been using red light since Feb but my old one broke when coming back from my holiday in my suitcase so had to order new one but this seems to be much brighter so thats why im doing it less mins. I did only use my old one for no longer than 8 mins every night did try more but that it seems to suit my skin.

I do have mild rosecea also and was worried about it affecting that and making it worse but fingers crossed it will help. It definely helps with the puffiness i get in my face just want to wait longer before giving more of a conlusion on what it helps.

How about you how are you finding the results you get?What skin type do you have?Experienced any side effects from it?Are you using red and blue light then?

Sarah
