NASA scientists became aware of the benefits of light therapy for cellular regeneration and healing. Initially, getting the therapeutic effects of phototherapy meant having to visit a dermatologist, therapist or spa. With the introduction of devices designed for in-home use, consumers now have the option of obtaining the same results. The hand-held devices contain LED lights, which emit light in red, blue or a combination of red and blue wavelengths. Light in the red wavelength spectrum penetrates deep into the skin to reduce inflammation and enhance blood circulation while causing a chemical reaction, which encourages cellular mitochondria to produce more energy for new cell growth. Blue light triggers the release of porphyrins in bacteria, which causes the microbes to self-destruct. The reputable Baby Quasar company offers a selection of in-home phototherapy devices.

Baby Quasar Pure Rayz
Measuring 4.8 centimeters in diameter, the Baby Quasar Pure Rayz has one of the largest treatment heads available in an in-home use therapeutic skin device. This means the unit features more LED lights, which enables treatment over a larger surface area. The Pure Rays bulbs emit light in four different wavelengths. Your skin benefits from the penetrating effects of amber lights at 610nm, red lights at 640nm, dark red at 660nm and near infrared light emitted at 850nm.
The combined effect calms overactive oil glands while stimulating cellular energy production for cell healing and repair along with collagen and elastin production. With a little commitment and patience, you see visible benefits in as little as two months. Quasar recommends using the Pure Rayz at least five times each week. Thorough application for each session typically takes approximately 16 minutes. However, the soothing warmth you feel on your skin during treatment makes the experience of using the device quite pleasant. An automatic timer alerts you when to move from one region to the next every three to four minutes. You need not sit by a clock while using the device. The Pure Rays shuts off automatically after treating each region. The Pure Rays weighs a mere 8.8 ounces, and the egg-shaped design of the unit makes it comfortable to hold. Simply relax in front of the TV or listen to your favorite music and let your session begin.
Each Pure Rayz comes with the power cord, protective eyewear and a convenient carrying bag. Baby Quasar also backs the device with a five-year, no questions asked warranty.
Baby Quasar Clear Rayz
The tear-shaped Clear Rayz is the ideal skin care phototherapy device for women or men. One side of the 8-ounce unit contains 42 blue LED lights, and the other side has 40 red LED bulbs. In this way, the Clear Rayz is useful for rejuvenating the appearance of skin or helping to reduce the visible signs of acne. Depress the power button once, and the red lights illuminate. The Clear Rayz is safe enough to apply the lights directly to the skin. During treatment, move the unit in a slow, circular or sweeping motion while treating one region at a time. The time to treat each area is seven minutes in length, which makes treating your overall face a 30-minute endeavor.
When wanting to kill surface bacteria linked to breakouts, simply turn the Clear Rayz over and push the button twice. Use the same circular or back and forth motion to treat specific areas for each five-minute session. At the end of the seven or five-minute session, the device automatically emits a low tone before shutting itself off. Simply turn the unit back on to the desired red or blue wavelength and continue treating your skin. The Clear Rayz can also be used on other body areas when needed. Quasar recommends using the device three to five times weekly for approximately eight weeks to get optimal results. After two months, reduce the number of weekly applications for maintaining your skin’s appearance.
Each Clear Rayz comes with a power cord, protective eyewear, convenient carrying bag and Quasar’s five-year warranty.
