No it doesnt show up in pictures but it just kinda looks like I have a little dirt smudge at the ends of my eye. I had some melasma under my eye but thats gone now I dont know if its the retinA or IS clinical superserum or what.I am hoping the retin A I put at the end of my eye will fade the brown color.

I took the bait as well....bit on one from ebay....I am hopeful it will help with the vascular discoloration on my neck in particular as well as discoloration on my face....I'm crossing my fingers....

Lookin Up....have you used yours any more???? Any results to share??

Also, I have orders products from Skin Actives the HA and others...you can make up your own HA to use with the BQ...very cheap..love that site as well. Lots of information!!!!

Let us know...and I will also let ya'll know what I think when mine arrives and I am able to use it.

Happy New Year everyone! :D

I've only used it three times so far...nothing appreciable yet...but It'll take some time, I am sure...(most of their before/afters are after 9 months to a year of use)....so I am still optimistic!

I received mine today....Do you know if the hydroquoine would be ok to use at the skin lightner before using the quasar? I don't have any idea what product they recommend using...I emailed the guy that sold it and he said they were out of stock....I have a bottle of HA serum...so, that will work...also bought a vial of HA to mix myself from skin actives....I am anxious to use it...It will probably be next week before I have the time as we have a houseful of guests for the holidays! :D

I don't know..I haven't used a gel/cream with it yet. You can write to Alex at the email on the booklet...I'd be curious if it is hydroquinone that you use for lightening, too.

Hello Everyone,

We've put together a regimen on how to apply serums with the Baby Quasar. This specific regimen is for HA although you could substitute hydroquinone if your treating any skin discoloration.

Please visit http://www.advanthera.com/skincareproducts.html for serums which we've found to compliment our light therapy products.

If anybody has any questions about the regimen below please feel free to contact us or post on this thread. We will answer all questions as quickly as we can.

P: (800) 944-1523
On The Web: www.AdvanThera.com

"Treating Anti-aging (Baby Quasar)
Daily Treatments (recommended)
Hyaluronic Serum
Please use the Hyaluronic Acid once a day
Do not use perform light treatments any closer than recommended below, which is between every 4-5 days. If you treat every 6-8, that is o.k. too. If you are performing the below technique, you are allowing almost the same amount of power and light into the skin as the professional devices. The only difference is the length of time necessary to achieve this, because the Baby's head is smaller.

Light Treatments (between 4-5 days - 6-8 days are recommended)
First 2 or 3 Light Treatments
These treatments, you will apply the Hyaluronic Acid immediately before treating. Do not over saturate the face, but definitely achieve an even balance of moisture and coverage
There are three modes on the Baby Quasar.
1. Continuous Wave (Green LED) - The highest power setting (1st click)
2. Low Frequency (Orangish LED) - The lowers power setting (2nd click)
3. High Frequency (Red LED) - The middle power setting (3rd click)
* Remember, the wand, when told to move, should never be lifted from the skin
* Also, the recommendation below is based on feedback of best results. Do not "over treat" or just start treating the skin on high settings.
* Look at the instruction manual on how the face is broken into 6 sections

First Pass
Take the head of the wand and start in Section 1 of the face (left forehead)
We are going to begin on the second mode (pulsing mode)
Each section will break down to "mini" sections. Following the below technique, you will notice that going in a "wave" direction, you will have a total of approximately 4 "mini" sections
- The total Section 1 should be treated for 4 minutes
- Start between the brows or slightly to the left
- Starting from between the brow, keep the head on the area for about 20 seconds (without moving)
- Going in a straight line from the brow to the hair line, now move the bottom of the wand to where the middle of the wand was
- Stay there for 20 seconds
- Again, in a straight line, move to the top of the forehead and the hairline. The bottom of the head should be approximately where the top of the head was when beginning
- Stay there for 20 seconds
"Mini" section 1 is complete
- Now you are going to move to "mini" section 2.
- Moving the wand further to the left, you will be overlapping from the first "mini" section you just did
- The right side of the wand should be in the middle of where the wand just was at the top of your forehead
You are now going to repeat the same steps as above, moving down
Then, you will move to the left again, and repeat

You are going to repeat this practice on your entire face for each section and "mini" section.
- You stay in place for about 20 seconds before moving the wand, and there should always be overlapping
- You should never be lifting the wand from the skin
- You don't have to sit there and count, but keep a clock with 3 hands near you to kind of keep track

Second Pass
Now that the first pass over your face is complete, we are going to move on to the second pass for the treatment
You are going to be following the same technique as described above, but you are now going to use the third mode (high frequency)
It is up to you on the second pass if you want to treat each section for 2 minutes or 4 minutes.
- If you choose 4 minutes, you stay in place for 20 seconds
- If you choose 2 minutes, you stay in place for 10 seconds

Concentrating On Specific Areas
Now that you have completed both passes, it is time to concentrate on the problem areas you are treating.
We are now going to use the first mode, Continuous wave frequency.
- If you are treating lines on the forehead that may cover from one side to the next, treat each line for about 2 minutes. Treating each concentrated spot for about 10 seconds.
- If you are treating lines from the nostril to the conjoining part of the lips, treat each line for about a minute. Treating each concentrated spot for about 10 seconds.
- If you are treating age or sun spots, keep the concentration on the spots for about 20-30 seconds each.
- If you are treating the lower eye lid, treat each concentrated spot for about 10 seconds

Next 3 up to 6 Light Treatments
There are two changes here. One is begin using the Hyperpigmentation cream. Again, apply the Hyperpigmentation cream immediately before treating. Do not over saturate the face, but definitely achieve an even balance of moisture and coverage.
Second, you are now going to do the first pass on the face using the High Frequency (third mode) and the second pass on Continuous Wave (first mode)
- Sometimes you may want to reapply the Hyperpigmentation cream when concentrating on specific areas, ONLY to the areas that you are concentrating on. Do not apply much, as most of it should have been retained from the initial application. Too much could possibly hinder results."

Well, still no obvious difference in my skin/wrinkles from the BQ...I believe I've done 4-5 treatments so far (I forget which--I've been doing it every 4-5 days since I got it)....

Unfortunately, nothing yet! But I will diligently keep up the routine for a while! I'm paying special attention to the 'crow's feet' area, the single line between my eyebrows, and the area around my mouth.

Are you using any creams or lotions with it? Curses, I should bring this up,
but in my Time for Me Catalog, they show another LED system called DPL
Therapy System. It looks easier to use. Have you ever seen or heard of it?

I looked it up...www.catalogclearance.com has it for 349 dollars. As far as easier, you don't have to hold the small wand...but it takes up a lot more space. (I don't think I'd use it as often, as I couldn't keep it out all the time--you'd have to assemble it and dissassemble it each time--didn't check out how the specs compare.) With the BQ, you just plug it in and it is quite small. My husband thinks the line between my brows is getting smaller...I'm skeptical...but we'll see. (I decided to ask for 'outside' opinions)...maybe I'm too critical (you know us virgos). At first I did it without any 'creams'...but the last few times I've been using hyaluronic acid gel.

Quasar and Restylane and botox not lasting

Postby erika_w » Sat Feb 03, 2007 1:47 pm

I had Restylane and Botox 6 weeks ago. I got the Baby q at christmas and have been using it every 5 days. I think it made my fillers fail!
My nasial folds have returned like they were before I had the fillers, and my wrinkles in the brow are back. Botox usually lasts at least 3-4 months. I never had them last this short a time. The only think I am doing different is the Quasar. I am stopping it!

I read about the same thing happening to another person (unless you also post on the EDS forums). Anyone else with regular botox, resty injections using the baby Q?

I didn't know the EDS forum, I have been reading here since I got lipo as this site is so helpful. I got the baby Q as my christmas gift from my husband. I can't afford to get all the fillers so soon, and I am afraid to tell my husband! I just connected to the link that was posted in the other note for the EDS discussion. it scared me, as there now seems to be some questions on safety. I didn't use it so much to make that a concern, but I am kicking myself that I listened to the hype and didn't read more. It just sounded so good...and I was the sucker that spent the $450 on it. I am at least glad I didn't have the money for the quasar sp as then I would have been out $1800!
