I'm excited!!! I ordered mine this morning.. They are back ordered {so none on Amazon and I guess on;y the one on ebay} and it won't go out till Monday.. bummer.. But at least I'll have it by Wed at the latest, according to Alex...

I get to join the Baby Q club sooner than expected... I just hate being out of the loop... Laughing

I'm sorry it's backordered Kiki-hope you enjoy it once it gets here.
I found that my best results came by not using it every single day (overanxious for results and knew I wasn't taking it with me). Using it 5 consecutive days really started to dry my skin, which is probably why they make that reccommendation for the acne prone, to dry it up.

Thank Annie, but at least I'm getting it, and sooner than I expeceted!

I talked with Alex this morning about the use of it, and he said every other day.. Just like our bodies, if we work them out every day {doing the same thing anyway} your face will get used to it , and then you won't get the results... I also asked about using my Dernal Tone and he said to keep using whatever I use now.. The Dermal Tone and the Baby Q don't do the same thing, even tho it does sound like some similar results are being achieved with the Baby Q...

Oh and I forgot to say in my original post.. I asked about using it with self tanner.. He's going to check out the one I use and get back to me, but said as long as it's not a product that just sits on your face, it should be fine.. I use Fake Bake for faces, so anything left 'sitting' on my face is washed away when I wash my face..

I am assuming from this, that if you self tan, and have any sun spots on your hands or arms, as long as you've washed of any left over residue, it won't be a problem either...

TAM,
my results are from starting on green, and doing the 30 sec per spot. I did manage to get one more session in last nite and so that makes 4. Went to lunch with girlfreind (very very good one that I've known for years) and during lunch she said my skin looked really really great..she elaborated to its just so smooth, she thought it was from my new home made cream, I had not mentioned the BQ, just my new concoction. And I did not say oh how does my skin look, I was just telling her about my mixing up stuff and we were having a good laugh.

oh and I had lip gloss, check tint and mascara on only.

Wow, I can't believe this topic and this BQ device! I started reading the first page and HAD to read through the rest Laughing!! Why am I not surprised that Advanced Therapeutics' BQ is now back ordered!

Katee- you are one convincing gal. I bugged you back awhile about the IS Clinical stuff and have wanted to try it since. My ONLY hesitations are due to budget constraints and wanting to try it before I buy it b/c my skin is so reactive. Anyway...

I not only am interested in the BQ for myself but also for my mum.

Anyway, keep the updates coming you lucky BQ-owning gals!


Also, do any of you know how it would compare to this light therapy? (I guess this is light therapy and not photo therapy but certain wavelengths are emmitted so I was wondering how they compare):

http://www.kaliszincolor.com/light-therapy.htm
http://www.kaliszincolor.com/acne/about-our-lights.htm
http://www.kaliszincolor.com/color-therapy.htm

Katee- has your derm mentioned anything about these types of light therapy?


I agree with whomever suggested it earlier- that Katee should get her BQ free or something for all the business she brought to AT. Wink

Word of mouth is something, ain't it?

Hi everybody,

I just bought this after getting absorbed by this fascinating thread. Very exciting! I can't wait to see how it works (I'm 47 and can use all the help I can get) Very Happy

P.S. I just got back from a Las Vegas stay too, and also stayed at the Venetian! Celebrating our wedding anniversary of 10 years. Small world! Smile

I wonder if anyone from the UK has ordered this yet - still drooling over the reviews in my little corner of the world, but it would be good to know how the shipping, customs and duties etc all stacks up. And hand-carrying it through the airport is definitely not an option now!!!

I'm in Singapore and am desperate to order it too but am hesitating just a bit because of the $55 shipping fee. Sigh...

Annie, melissa and katee, are you seeing seeing any tightening of the skin and diminishing of lines yet? Thanks!

I received and used it for the first time on Wednesday. I have hyperpigmentation and put some lightening serum on first. Did it by the book. Wanted to do it again last night, but resisted the temptation as it suggests to give your skin a chance to rest. Also did my neck and chest. I think I saw some results but can't be positive because I do soo much to get rid of hyperpigmentation that I can't tell if it's because of the BQ. My chest has less of the "bed wrinkles" the next morning though.

Also did one of my fingernails which has a huge horizontal dent in it. Figure if it helps blood flow, it can encourage new growth. Will continue to update.

Surprised how simple it is. I have every gadget and gizmo out there and it's just 2 pieces and you don't have to even look in a mirror if you don't want to. Nice to just watch tv and do it.

I def see tightening and smoother firmer skin, the lines on my forehead (which were very mild) are faintly visible now, the longer term results will take some time, but def yes to firming, as I said my freind even said how smooth and good my skin looked.

I am following this with great interest. I need something for firming and wrinkles, but am also wanting help with hyperpigmentation, blemishes and broken capillaries. Please everyone post on any results with these other issues. TIA

I will definitely do that...I'm even thinking of doing before and after pictures. If others have that capability, we should all do it.

I'm looking for help with broken caps, some large pores, undereye wrinkles, and several "sun spots." Thankfully, I virtually never get pimples anymore after I started using "clean" cleansers (low ph, no detergents) and emu oil + HA has my moisturizer.

Okay, I completed my 4th treatment last night (2nd time using the full strength). I have to say that so far I really don't see anything yet. I'm hoping that I will after 5 since you're supposed to see results starting between 4-5 times. I can say that immediately after I used it last night, I noticed a slight lift around my eye area, but that was gone by this morning. So far nothing has changed with my wrinkles/fine lines/broken caps. I think I'm probably just a slow healer, since I can definitely feel that it's doing something for an hour or so after I use it.

Anyway, I just wanted to update since I hit #4 and said I would. I will continue to report back.

I just received mine last night, excited to use it.
FYI, I am in Canada, shipping was very quick for any of you Canadian gals interested. Also, duty charges were not too bad, Very Happy considering, about $30.00, hths.

Tam, I think this is also a cumulative product, if one needs 10 treatments at the salon strength level, then if I read this right it can take up to 20 (twice salon number) to get the same effects. So hang in there, you might not see much for awhile. Maybe Alex can confirm that.

Thanks for the update TAM.. I keep coming back to the board all day, to see if there are any new reports...

When I spoke with Alex, he said that the results are cumulative, also I think, depending on your amount of damage, it may take longer.. What MM said makes sense to me, abotu the amount it could take compared to the professional version...

I'm really antsy to get mine next week.. My kids Dad is going to be the real test, I think I said that before.. His eye lids are really fallen {they've always been like that, but have gotten worse, to the point of him thinking of getting an eye lift} I will be sure to report his progress and if I can get the digi to work, or borrow one, I will take pics and post...

I hope more of y'all check in with your progress...

Yes, it's definitely supposed to be cummulative. And 2 treatments (of the green I believe) are supposed to be equal to one professional one, so if that's the case then I've really only done 1-2 so far. I guess I should report back when I've completed 8-10 treatments to equal the professional 4-5. If I notice any major changed between now and then I'll definitely let everyone know. Thanks!!! Very Happy

Back from Vegas and the Venetian, and boy do I need this now!!! My skin looks horrible and dry! Five days of dry air, heat, not enough water, (too much alcohol), plane rides, and this will be the true test. I'll use the proper procedures and not use it every day and get back to everyone. I hope you guys are still loving it!! Loved Vegas, had a blast and good luck, but so glad to be home!! Smile
