Which of these two devices is better for anti-aging? They both sound good but I like that the Prolight takes a shorter time to treat hence I am thinking this device is more powerful then the Lightstim. Is this correct?

Bixa - I have both of these and prolight does say shorter time but that's not the reality. I actually prefer lightstim for results. I still use prolight along with Lightstim but for the same amount of time...

Sistersweets, how long have you been using the light stim? So you prefer it over the Prolight? Why does everyone say the prolight is faster if it isn't?

I have the AALS and it's a guess from Prolight pictures and comments I've read..as it's less time per treatment area (Prolight) but it has a smaller head than the Lightstim, that could be the reason why.

The Anti-Aging Lightstim is 3 minutes per area.

Also Toby commented on consistency of use on another thread: "The protocol for the Prolight was to use it once or twice a week. The Lightstim is recommended five times a week for the first stage of treatment."

Hi Bixa - Prolight's literature says you only need a short period of time to work but I didn't see any results when used that way. One of the reasons I bought it was I thought you needed limited time. After using the AALS for the 2-3 minutes for a short period of time I noticed the difference and realized it was either a better product or the time needed was far more than the few seconds the prolight literature states . Now I use the prolight for the same amount of time. I use prolight at the same time as the AALS and alternate.

Sister sweets, so basically they both take about the same amount of time then? I believe the lightstim is cheaper on QVC then the Prolight price so if they are equally alike then I would save some money going with the lightstim. Do you feel they are fairly equal as far as time needed to use and results?

Bixa - In complete honesty I think the AALS is superior. I wish I had two of them....

Sistersweets, thank you for your reply. Looks like the Lightstim is in my near future.

No-one has been able to figure out why the recommended treatment time for the ProLight is so short and infrequent - it is contrary to the instructions for all the other LEDs on the market.

Most people who own the ProLight seem to have given up on it due to lack of results and are now using the Lightstim. IMO the lack of results are due to insufficient treatment time. How two minutes of treatment once or twice a week can possibly be effective, I don't know.

I have never tried the ProLight, but I do own both the Baby Q and the AALS. My recommendation is to go with the AALS.

I agree keliu....also I do think that Lightstim has something going on with the speed of the pulsing lights(unseen by our eyes) that make it more effective than some of the other lights.

I never knew about the pulsing lights... I'm sure it's all over that looooong AALS thread. I've been using all of my LED lights! One, two or three at a time. Laughing

LightStim LEDs do NOT pulse.
