Quasar MD Light Therapy Device Manual
QUASAR RED LIGHT THERAPY
Replacing collagen and elastin in the skin is critical in helping you achieve healthy, radiant looking skin.Due to the aging process, skin and the supporting tissues naturally lose collagen and elastin. These are the building blocks of your skin and as we age, the body produces less. Visually, this results in fine lines and wrinkles. Compounding normal aging, overexposure to sun and smoking can hasten the appearance of wrinkles. Red and infrared light are the only known method for stimulating the body to produce more collagen. You will look your best when your skin contains maximum collagen. The result is firmer, fuller skin and, therefore, fewer wrinkles. A key point here is that only Red Light technology triggers your body to produce its own collagen. Combine it with other treatment modalities for best results healthier looking skin. Red Light Quasars use four wavelengths of light: amber 610 nm, amber/red 630 nm, super red 660 nm and infrared 850 nm light. At 65mw/cm2 of power, Quasars are the most powerful LED light skin care tools available today. With this level of power, Quasars perform more efficiently and effectively. The light penetrates more deeply into the skin.
As shown below, Quasars ‘outshine’ the competition. For example, it would take the Mask ten (10) continuous hours of treatment time to match twelve minutes of Quasar treatment time.

Treating acne is an entirely differentmechanism. p. acnes bacteria resides on everyone’s skin.An overabundance of the bacteria leads to blemishes and visible acne.P. acnes bacteria flourishes when the sebaceous glands in our pores produce too much sebum.

" I’m 47, I've used a lot of Anti-Aging LIght Therapy products but Quasar MD is my favorite ever. I've barely any lines around my eyes now and I also use it on my frown lines between my brows, they're gone! I had an aha moment and decided to try it on my one deepish forehead line about a month ago and it's barely noticeable. Just try this device, you won't be disappointed!! "

The Baby Quasar PLUS has a treatment head measuring 1.44 inches in diameter. The Quasar MD PLUS has a treatment head measuring 1.94 inches in diameter. The Baby Quasar PLUS uses 3mm LEDs whereas the Quasar MD PLUS uses 5mm LEDs. The Baby Quasar PLUS provides portable touch-ups.
Do I have to move the device, why can't I just leave it in one spot?
By moving the device, you ensure that the different wavelengths cover all areas of your skin.
If I get Botox or fillers. Can I use the device? Will it melt my fillers?
After injections including Botox or fillers, it is recommended that you wait two weeks before treating the same area with a Quasar device. This will give the injection or filler time to settle. After two weeks, you may resume treatments in the area you received the injection or filler. The devices will not break down or melt your fillers.
Can I go directly over my eyes while using the device? Will it harm my eyes?
The light is very bright and can cause discomfort if you look at it directly. There are no clinical studies to support that the devices will harm your eyes, however, keep your eyes closed when treating around your eyes and do not move the device directly over your eyelids. All Quasar devices include a complimentary pair of goggles for your comfort.
Is there a specific amount of areas that I should treat?
It is up to you to choose the areas you would like to treat. You should treat any areas where you have fine lines, wrinkles or acne. On page four of your user manual, there is a diagram showing common areas of concern.
Is it safe to use the device every day?
More is not necessarily better with light therapy. Use the device as recommended and adjust according to your experience. For some, using the Quasar one or two days per week will produce the desired result. For others, a full five days of treatment per week will produce the best results. If you overuse the device, you may experience red or dry skin and could lessen the effectiveness of your treatments.
My skin is red and dry. Why?
If you are using the device five days a week and your skin is red or excessively dry, you may have sensitive skin. Lessen your treatments to two-to-three days per week and make sure you are using a good moisturizer after treatments.
Can I use topical products before Quasar treatments?
Quasar devices should be used on clean dry skin. If you choose to use an anti-aging serum or gel, apply and let the serum or gel dry completely before starting treatments with the device. Always perform a test on the inside of your arm before you apply products or light to your face. Do not use any heavy or greasy creams or lotions before treatments as these can cause a barrier between the skin and light penetration. However, be sure to moisturize after each treatments.
Can I use the device in another country?
All devices come with an 110v to 240v power supply adequate for the United States and international use. You will need to add the appropriate adapter for the country you are in.
Can I use red and blue light in the same day?
Do not treat with red and blue light in the same day. Red light is a vasodilator and blue is a vasoconstrictor. If you use them in the same day, they will essentially cancel each other out. Use red and blue light on alternating days.
