Science of Light Therapy
Power + Price Conscious:
The Baby Quasar is designed with four wavelengths of natural light making it the most powerful and effective consumer device available today. Simply and thoughtfully designed for you, the individual who wants anti-aging or acne treatments all within the fun and convenience of your own home. The perfect solution to enhancing personal appearance.
The Baby Quasar gives you intense red and infrared light therapy which stimulates cellular metabolism, blood flow and circulation, and collagen reproduction. Using selected wavelengths of red and infrared light tuned to the bodies cellular needs, the Baby Q helps to create healthy, beautiful skin.
Baby Got SequePulse®:
Our premium products and dedicated customer support define us. Because we designed the Baby Quasar to be a smaller version of our professional models, we were able to include four wavelengths of light and our SequePulse® Technology. SequePulse® Technology is our answer to the problems normally associated with the use of multiple wavelengths of light. Many others are still trying to figure this out, or worse, decide to leave out the benefits of multiple wavelengths. By sequentially pulsing the light, we can eliminate harmonics in the light, thereby allowing you to achieve faster, better results.
The Answer for Acne & Aging Skin:
For those with acne, we designed the Baby Blue to address the need to control p. acne bacteria. Engineered and built with same quality and intuitive design you expect from Quasar, the Baby Blue brings the maximum benefit to clients worried about Acne. The Quasar Blue is intended for use in harmony with the Baby Quasar when treating Acne and blemishes.
Clinical studies in the U.K. revealed that the combination of red/infrared light (Baby Quasar) and blue light (Baby Blue) treatments provided the maximum benefit in treatment of inflammatory acne. Medical experts know that acne results from an excess of acne bacteria and sebum in the hair follicles. Over 17 million Americans currently experience acne breakouts, and most will suffer at some time in their lives. This type of treatment is both gentle and effective in controlling bacteria and the release of sebum.
Whether your concerns are aging skin or acne, Quasar Babies have the answer.
As we age, our skin becomes naturally thinner, loses moisture, and becomes less elastic. The age at which this naturally occurs varies and is genetic in origin. Some of us will appear to age more slowly due to the genetic gift of our parents. Others will age more quickly and may look older than their actual years.
One of the main factors in aging skin is collagen. A large, moist molecule, collagen is the building block of our skin. The body naturally reduces the production of collagen as we enter the 50's and 60's. Without the collagen, the skin becomes less supple and elastic, it thins, and color changes take place. The result is an increase in lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, and age spots (hyper pigmentation).
Perhaps the largest component of skin damage in the baby boomer's is sun damage. Baby boomer's may be the first significant group of individuals to deliberately expose their skin to large doses of sunlight from an early age. Physicians now report that the sun damage seen by many of those in their 40's, 50's, and 60's is a result of early overexposure to the sun - mainly in the teenage years. Early exposure to the sun to exacerbate the natural changes which occur later in life. The skin's thinning, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, age spots are all made worse with the visible damage appearing sooner - making the person appear older than he or she is chronologically. Medical studies have also shown cigarette smoking as another culprit in skin damage.
Medical science suggests that once the injury to the body and skin has occurred, little can be done to prevent the ensuing appearance of skin damage. The lines, wrinkles, and hyper pigmentation will gradually emerge. The individual is then left with the option of appearing older than he or she is or taking aggressive steps to restore, rejuvenate, the skin through current techniques and treatment.
Recent developments in skin care technology have have great strides in correcting the flaws resulting from sun damage to the skin. Photo rejuvenation has emerged as a primary technology for alleviating the signs of aging. These treatments are relatively safe, pain free, and inexpensive when compared with earlier skin care solutions such as laser skin resurfacing and face lifts. Today, everyone can enjoy relaxing photo rejuvenation treatments with greatly improved skin appearance at a low cost and pain free. Home use instruments like the Baby Quasar make photo rejuvenation treatments even more convenient and affordable.
Make Acne Sing the Blues:
Acne, the most common of all skin disorders, is a traumatic experience for millions of youngsters and adults. As Sulzberger & Zaldems said in 1948, "There is no single disease which causes more psychic trauma, more maladjustment between parents and children, more general insecurity and feelings of inferiority and greater sums of psychic suffering than does acne vulgaris."
Acne is a disorder resulting from the action of hormones and other substances on the skin's oil glands (sebaceous glands) and hair follicles. These factors lead to plugged pores and outbreaks of lesions commonly called pimples or zits. Acne lesions usually occur on the face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders. Although acne is usually not a serious health threat, it can be a source of significant emotional distress. Severe acne can lead to permanent scarring.
Found over most of the body, follicles consist of a sebaceous gland connected to a canal, that contains a fine hair. These are most numerous on the face, upper back, and chest. The sebaceous glands make an oily substance called sebum that normally empties onto the skin surface through the opening of the follicle, commonly called a pore. Cells called keratinocytes line the follicle.
The hair, sebum, and keratinocytes that fill the narrow follicle may produce a plug, which is an early sign of acne. The plug prevents sebum from reaching the surface of the skin through a pore. The mixture of oil and cells allows bacteria Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) that normally live on the skin to grow in the plugged follicles. These bacteria produce chemicals and enzymes and attract white blood cells that cause inflammation. (Inflammation is a characteristic reaction of tissues to disease or injury and is marked by four signs: swelling, redness, heat, and pain.)
Acne Treatment - With Quasar Therapy:
Only recently discovered, blue and red/infrared light therapy offer substantial benefit over the traditional approaches to acne treatment. Previous methods focused on either medication (Accutane or Retin-A) or topical products such as Proactive. The downside of these products lies in their cost, side effects and the inconvenience factor. Clinical studies have shown that a combination of red and blue therapy work better than the previous acne treatments, is less costly, and has no side effects. Having good acne information is critical to making acne treatment decisions.
With our Baby Quasar and Baby Blue devices, we have an outstanding acne treatment that is completely natural and requires no harsh medication. This is not a cure for acne – there is no cure, but the light therapy treatment will dramatically improve the appearance of acneic skin. Although P. acnes bacteria normally lives on the skin and sebum normally keeps skin smooth and supple, an excess of either will lead to acne.
The combination of blue light (416-420 nanometers) which kills the P. acne bacteria and red/infrared (600-1200 nanometers) which shrinks pores and reduces sebum, attack the causes of acne and will dramatically reduce inflammation and redness associated with acne. The red/infrared light of the Baby Quasar additionally stimulates the healing response to reduce scarring from acne.
Pain and Healing
The red and infrared light therapy offered by the Baby Quasar represents a true advance over the therapeutic tools in use for over 50 years in stimulating healing and temporary pain management. Our combination of four wavelengths and SequePulse technology are a non pharmacological solution. Effective in treating cuts, bruises, burns, sprains, strains, inflammation, and similar injuries. The Baby Q stimulates not only blood flow and circulation but also the release of nitric oxide which is a critical element in healing.
