It isn't RF...strictly light therapy...so no tissue damage. (We use RF in surgery....(tissue ablation of tonsils, uvula, etc.)...don't think they'll be selling any home RF systems any time soon.

Hi, thanks -- I knew the RF question was probably way "out there" but with a couple of close calls over the last couple of years, I ask anyway. I guess I'll have to order one. I don't seem to have any will power when it comes to
new exciting stuff.

Join the club! You should come visit my bathroom...it looks more like a spa store than a bathroom! (My husband is ready to use the bathroom in the basement--my 'stuff' is edging him out and he has very little room around his sink!) NO question on these boards is 'way out there'...definitely better to be safe than sorry...I'm just very familiar with RF because I am a PA with an ENT and they use it a lot in surgery. All questions are definitely welcomed on these boards!! That's what it is here for!

There are quite a number of this unit for home sale now, but it is really difficult to get the technical specs on them to compare.

Some on ebay say they have the same specs but the units look a little flimsy to me, but that may be just me.

the only thing that is keeping me from buying the QSP is I am afraid that my botox and radiesse will not last long,I heard one lady used it and the effects of botox were minimized afterwards...I wonder if I could just avoid those areas of the face where there is filler or botox or will my skin tone look uneven?What to do! The EDS board also has a really good review of the nuface which the girls are claiming helps drooping skin....I could spend a fortune!I am going to look into facial exercises they have a lot of different threads on the EDS boards and everyone says they work in toning the face but are a challenge to keep up....I am doing everything I can to keep from having anymore cosmetic surgery!

Personally I think the nuface is way over priced for a microcurrent system.

Ok...I did bite...(thank you oh mighty employer for a great Christmas bonus!)....Purchased a BQ on ebay...should be coming in the next few days....can't wait to try it and let you know how it works...(obviously I am very optimistic, or I wouldn't have shelled out over 400 bucks--at least it'll last longer than a botox treatment! Already have my kids lined up to be guinea pigs as well! (facial redness and acne for them...they are 19 and 22...I am 48...so I'll have different 'experiences' to report).

Update...just received my baby quasar...didn't get the creams that I had requested...oh well...waiting for it to warm up a bit before plugging it in...that UPS truck must be chilly! It is smaller and lighter than I had expected....we'll see what happens!

Hi, I'm glad you got one, 'cause I ordered one last week from Amazon ( still waiting for delivery) and you are very good at discussions on the forums.
Hope you have good results.

there is a lot of info on www.essentialdayspa.co. Click on forums then products reviews you will see 2 threads on the Sp Quasar and the Baby Q. A lot of people seem pretty happy with them especially when IPL is such an expensive procedure, why not buy your own machine?

I look forward to seeing how you go, I have really dark pigmentation all round my eyes. I hear some ladies use it around the eye area but it’s not recommended other then that I am still getting my peels done for age spots.

Over in the face thread they are talking about IPL being no good for this type of pigmentation but great for freckles etc which (and I am not sure) might be also good for my eye pigmentation as I have had that all my life.

There is also a good thread and comparison of the BQ and the lightstim. Looks like the ladies prefer the QB though

Avelon...is that your personal site? Nice! I always thought you were from the UK...didn't realize you were from Oz...happy summer...I hear it is really hot there right now! (Some other Aussies on the Br board are rubbing it in!!! )

Did my first 'treatment' with the BQ yesterday...(wasn't thrilled with wearing those darn tanning goggles, but I survived :lol: ) It took about 1/2 an hour...I followed the instructions to the letter. I really can't wait for my kids to get home...(I know at least one of them will sit still and let me do her)...to see how it helps the redness from acne.

Avelon I have the identical problem you have brownish areas at the ends of my eyes,I would like to get rid of them. I am using retin A every night on them. I dont know if its melasma but I dont even expose my face to the sun either and I dont like to wear a lot of coverup makeup because I think it makes me look old.

I just always up late never can sleep so I am on the same time as the UK ladies. Just put the site up a few days ago, needs a lot of work but in all these years I have never seen a AU website that wasn’t trying to sell something, or even just listed PS’s that paid for the listing, plus its so unregulated here any doctor that takes a short course can do PS ops.

Lollipop do you notice is shows up more in photo’s ?
