Anti-Age with Red LED Aurora by Sirius! Seriously 🙂The serum I use with the Aurora is one I make myself. I use the
Nature's Answer Green Tea Leaf, Alcohol Free in the 1-Ounce and add to the Vegetable-Glycerin-96%-Alcohol Free-in the 4 Ounce size, so a 1:4 ratio of green tea to glycerin. You can adjust this anyway you wish but wanted to let everyone know what I have been doing. Both of the products can be ordered from Amazon.com for a total of $20.58 US and will last a long time since you only use a few mls at a time. MUCH less expensive than other "Brand" antioxidant serums on the market.
Baby Q has a treatment surface area of 3.14 sq inches. The treatment surface area of the Aurora is 4.71-which is 50% greater. The Baby Q's power output is 2.6 joules per square centimeter while the Aurora's is 2.8 joules.
Professional LED treatments run between 20 and 50 joules but are not always tolerated by sensitive skin.
Baby Quasar- average 700. for all three led panels
Aurora by Sirius 149.00 Free shipping in the US and Canada. 60 day return policy and one year warranty.

Green tea and red light--a powerful duo in skin rejuvenation.

Juvenile skin has been the subject of intense research efforts since ancient times. This article reports on synergistic complementarities in the biological actions of green tea and red light, which inspired the design of a green tea-assisted facial rejuvenation program.
The approach is based on previous laboratory experiments providing insight into a mechanism by which visible light interacts with cells and their microenvironment.
After 2 months of extreme oxidative stress, green tea-filled cotton pads were placed once per day for 20 minutes onto the skin before treatment with an array of light-emitting diodes (central wavelength 670 nm, dermal dose 4 J/cm2).
Rejuvenated skin, reduced wrinkle levels, and juvenile complexion, previously realized in 10 months of light treatment alone were realized in 1 month.
The accelerated skin rejuvenation based on the interplay of the physicochemical and biological effects of light with the reactive oxygen species scavenging capacity of green tea extends the action spectrum of phototherapy. The duo opens the gate to a multitude of possible biomedical light applications and cosmetic formulas, including reversal of topical deterioration related to excess reactive oxygen species, such as graying of hair.
