Why do you have to move the device instead of leaving it in one spot?
By moving the device, you ensure that the different wavelengths cover all areas of your skin.

I get Botox or fillers. Can I use the device? Will it melt my fillers?
After injections including Botox or fillers, you should 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.

Will it harm my eyes? Can I go directly over my eyes with the device?
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. We include a complimentary pair of goggles with each device for your comfort.

How many areas should I 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.

Can I 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 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.
