Years ago an aesthetician recommended I come in for some painless light treatments to help with my skin. I was on board until I heard the price. So when given the opportunity, I snatched up the Baby Quasar ($449). It's a photo rejuvenation (light therapy) tool you use at home, and while the price tag is hardly bargain basement, it's a fraction of the cost you'd pay for the professional treatment (which is essentially the same).
It is painless—and easy—though more time consuming than other beauty treatments. You divide the face into six sections, pass the light tool over each section for two minutes (a tone will sound) and then move on to the next. Once you've made one complete pass over the whole face, you start again. Treatments are recommended up to three times a week, and on alternate days, you can use the Baby Blue, a similar device that uses blue light to treat acne.
I've only been using the BabyQ twice a week, but within a few weeks, my rosacea has diminished, and the remaining dark spots on my cheeks are fading. It's too soon to see its effect on the lines around my eyes, but so far the overall improvement in my skin is a glowing (literally!) recommendation.
