Quasar SP Pro On Gilt!

November 20, 2009

My love for my Baby Quasar is pure, unadulterated and unconditional — okay, well except for one teeny tiny little thing — it’s tininess! The head is pretty small and so covering my whole face take a lot more time than I’d like. But Gilt this gargantuan of a Quasar, the Quasar SP Pro, which retails for $1,849.00 but is currently on sale for $925.00. I’d LOVE to get my hands on it and actually think it’s worth the investment, but honestly just can’t afford it at the moment.

Gilt also has blue light Baby Quasar for $262 (from $349) and the red for $349 (from $449). Pricey yes, but definitely worth it, especially at these discounts. Iā€™m extending an invitation to you to join this great invite-only sample sale site if you’re not already a member so that you can check these sales out for yourself.

*In the interest of full disclosure, Gilt does have an “Invite Friends, Get $25” incentive through which the individual making the referral receives a $25 credit when the referree makes his/her first purchase.*

Baby Quasar Red Light Therapy ($449)

Quasar Light Therapy redefined skincare and brought light therapy out of the spa and into the home by introducing new technology to the consumer marketplace.

As an industry leader in photo rejuvenation with the first popular consumer light therapy device, we continue our commitment to bring high quality professional devices to the consumer market with unparalleled research and development.

Using superior technology developed by NASA for healing in space, the baby quasar works by stimulating the production of collagen, thereby diminishing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and enlarged pores.

Extremely effective in firming and toning the skin and increasing blood flow and circulation. the Baby Quasar uses 24 leds in four discrete wavelengths of red and infrared light. In order to prevent the destructive harmonics which result from using multiple wavelengths and which diminish the effectiveness, we developed sequential pulsing.

Helps to safely stimulate collagen production for smoother, younger looking skin.

For those of you who’ve read my preliminary thoughts on the Baby Quasar (see them HERE), you’ll know that I’m a fan. I’ve been using it rather religiously since I returned from Korea a few days ago and it’s definitely enabled my skin to recover from the traveling/flight much quicker than it normally would, plus it zapped a few airplane-recycled-air induced breakouts that had cropped up. So I’m super excited to see a large department store like Neiman Marcus stocking it–yay! šŸ™‚

Quickie Baby Quasar Update #1

April 26, 2009

I’m usually not one to admire my own handiwork, but I have to say that I love this photo I took of the Baby Quasar. But all self-aggrandizement aside, it’s finally time to update you on my preliminary experiences with this petite little wand of miracles, which I introduced you to HERE.

First comes my guilty confession: I haven’t been using this nearly as regularly as I should be because I’m lazy and just can’t seem to muster up the energy to spend 36 minutes holding the Baby Quasar up to my face some nights. BUT even with the limited use this has been receiving, I can without a doubt say that the Baby Quasar is pretty amazing.

So what am I loving so far? Well I haven’t been using the Baby Quasar long enough to see the full-range of results (check out more info on the product site HERE), but this device is unparalleled for zapping away pesky pimples and eradicating cystic acne at its source. I was warned that the Baby Quasar might initially cause a few breakouts as it attempts to normalize your sebaceous glands (resulting in unclogged and tightened pores), and I did notice a few minor bumps, but when I used this on this monster I had forming on my chin, it literally dried it up overnight and it never came to a head.

I also have some acne scarring on my chin due to a spurt of massive breakouts I experienced a few months back, and the Baby Quasar has definitely helped to fade those so that they’re much less visible. I’m confident that with regular usage they’ll quickly disappear.

Not so much: Well pretty much just the fact that the whole process is a bit time-consuming, but who ever said it was easy to be beautiful? šŸ™‚

How to use: You basically split your face into six sections like so:

So Step 1 is to move the Baby Quasar over each sectioned off area for 2 minutes at either the low frequency (orange LED) setting for sensitive skin, or the high frequencey (red LED) setting for normal skin. So after you’ve completed that process ( = 12 minutes), you repeat the treatment a second time using the continuous wave (green LED) or high frequency settings. Once you’re done, you can go back over special areas of concern for an additional two minutes.

When I’m done using my Baby Quasar for the night, I notice that my skin looks smoother, plumper, and just healthier. But I really noticed a difference when I tried the Quasar on my mom–after doing half her face, there was a marked difference. I can’t wait to see the cumulative results of weeks of light therapy!

A Baby (Quasar That Is) To Call My Very Own!

Baby Quasar ($449)

Guess who finally got her greedy little hands on one of these miracle-working (from what I’ve heard) Baby Quasars? Me!!! I’ve been counting down the days, waiting for this Baby to arrive on my doorstep, and it’s here at last.

For those of you who don’t recall, I featured the Baby Quasar in my 2008 Holiday Gift Guide as being a great splurge for that beauty & gadget lover in your life.

What Does It Do? Priced at $449, hopefully quite a bit! The Baby Quasar is a skincare tool that employs various light wavelengths (amber, red and infrared) to stimulate the production of collagen, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, diminishing discoloration, fading scarring, reducing pore size, increasing blood flow and circulation, and clearing acne ~ and from the buzz I’ve read on this product, it really delivers.

While I don’t really have any wrinkles to speak of (knock on wood), I do have a bit of discoloration and some enlarged pores that I’d love to see improved upon. I’ll be testing this product out on myself, of course, and also using it on my mother to see how this works for us.

Stay tuned for updates! I’m hoping to report back with fabulous results! And since I’ve read that this device can also be used to relieve pain, I may just test it out on my snowboarding bruises as well :).
