Mythbuster Beauty Review: Baby Quasar and Baby Blue

Warning! The photo rejuvenation devices I am about to review are expensive! You may be better off being blissfully unaware of these rather awesome devices. I give you this warning because once you read about what the Baby Quasar and Baby Blue Photo Light Devices can and do for your skin; you will covet them until you finally own them!

What are the devices: Photo Rejuvenation and Acne Clearing Devices

How they work: The Baby Quasar (or BabyQ, as it’s affectionately called) is designed to deliver four light wavelengths (that is amber, red and infrared). The Baby Blue delivers only blue light. This is a picture of the Baby Quasar. The Baby Blue looks exactly the same, but emits a blue light.

What the devices do:   By following a series of photo rejuvenation sessions for six weeks, the Baby Quasar can enhance the skin cells’ circulation, stimulating collagen production and healing. The Baby Blue emits a blue light that kills the p. acne bacteria. Used together, they can reduce the inflammation and redness associated with acne or sensitive skin. The red light causes the release of nitric oxide, which is essential for healing. These devices are meant to enhance and improve the effectiveness of your skincare serums and treatments. Light Therapy is best for individuals with sun damage, redness, broken blood vessels and brown discoloration, including freckles.

My experience:

I was told to start by using the Baby Blue device first followed by a Baby Quasar session for six weeks to achieve the maximum benefits. I used both devices every other day for six weeks and each session lasted for about 35 minutes.

Both devices were easy to use. The warmth from the light felt good against my skin and there was no pain involved. I found the light therapy sessions very soothing, especially after using the Baby Quasar. I noticed that my blemishes seemed to heal more quickly and the number of my breakouts diminished while using both devices. I generally used the Blue Light as a spot treatment on areas where I tend to break out (nose, cheeks and chin), and the red Baby Quasar over the entire face.

I noticed that the Baby Quasar significantly helped diminish my skin’s redness. It was very soothing to my skin. Over the six weeks, I noticed more firmness and softened lines around my eyes, mouth and forehead. My pigmentation issues have improved and are less noticeable on my cheeks and chin. On my cheeks, I noticed some very dramatic improvements including some pigmentation spots fading and completely vanishing.  I have been trying to clear up some very deep small whiteheads on the apples of my cheeks for years, and while using the BabyQ and Baby Blue, these small whiteheads have slowly been surfacing and disappearing!   I have also noticed diminished pore size around my cheeks, chin and nose.

In short, I loved the Baby Quasar. You are going to love what these devices can do for your skin!

You will need to avoid shining the light directly into your eyes or around mucous membranes. I did get a few strange sores after exposing my nostrils to the light. Other than that, I noticed no other side effects or adverse issues while using the Baby Quasar and the Baby Blue devices.

Where do you purchase, and how much:

The price of these devices is very high. The Baby Quasar costs $449 plus $20 s&h at the Baby Quasar site. Both the BabyQ and Blue devices are sold for $699 plus $20 s&h in the Baby Quasar Power Pack. However, if you look at the cost of going to an esthetician or clinic for Photo Rejuvenation Therapy or Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) a series of five treatments can cost between $1,000 – $2,000. To have a device that can be used at your convenience and indefinitely, you can see how these devices can be a deal. The Baby Quasar devices have a one year warranty from the manufacturer, and the company provides excellent customer support. You can also share the devices with other family and friends.

Special Discount Code: Baby Quasar is offering a promotional code, ‘mythbeauty’ that will give you an additional 10% discount off any Baby Quasar device.

Conclusion: The improvements are subtle and take time, but I have noticed some real benefits while using the Baby Blue and Baby Quasar. I highly recommend using the Baby Quasar.

[Here is picture I took today with a bit of makeup, (but really not that much), and no touch-ups! My skin isn’t perfect, but not bad for a 39 year old mother of five.]

Don’t just take my word either, a fellow beauty blogger and skincare aficionado Miss K has also written rave reviews of the Baby Quasar device, “What my skincare routine has been missing”: Miss K’s Blog. She also includes some great before and after pictures.

If you are serious about getting the most out of your skincare, purchasing the Baby Quasar would be definitely a step in the right direction. BabyQ really rocks!

Tales from the Dark Side of 30: Beauty Marks

A while back, my friend Tracy (aka Dandelion Mama) sent out a distress call to MBB:

“I have two, um, beauty marks ( I use the term with trepidation, as they are ugly as sin to me) on my right cheek, one near my jaw and one near my hairline- they weren’t always there, but now they are and I HATE them. The stick out like little pencil erasers, and are just skin colored. They make me feel like a wicked, ugly old lady. Or like Lemmy Kilmeister. Is there anything I can do about them? Can they be removed? Are they hereditary? My mom has one on her chin, but it’s dark brown… oh good grief- shoot me now.
…help.”

From what you describe, it sounds like these beauty marks are skin tags, and are usually benign and easily removed by a Dermatologist.  The downside might be some slight scarring and possibly the return of those tags.  I would consider a trip to the Dermatologist.  My step dad and SIL both had several tags removed from their foreheads and cheeks, and couldn’t believe how easy it was (and that they hadn’t done it years before)!  In many cultures, these skin tags are considered highly prized and beautiful.  Don’t think Lemmy, think of Cindy Crawford and Marilyn Monroe!

If these marks are more like “age spots,” I can send you back to the post about using different topical treatments containing AHA’s, Vitamin C and retinoids (without hydroquinone) and laser treatments.  Using Photo Rejuvenation or light therapy can also be used to effectively treat age spots or hyperpigmentation.  I am actually testing out a home photo rejuvenation device called the Baby Quasar and am really optimistic about using it.  I took some before photos of my face (yikes), and will keep you posted on my experience with it.

Hope some of this information helps and would value any other input from the Council.  Over out!
