"I use ANSR [www.ansr.com], a hand-held device that emits blue and red light, to clear my acne twice daily. I find there’s no need for fancy prescriptions like Retin-A when I use this sleek disc. I like the idea of having red and blue photo-therapy at home."
Since turning 40, adult acne has been plaguing me. I was recently diagnosed with rosacea and my dermatologist prescribed three medications which were working but which I really didn't want to take on a long-term basis.
I started using ANSR this past May (I'm on day 95!) and I can truly see a difference in my skin! While I still get an occasional pimple, gone are the clusters that had been gathering on my nose and cheek areas! The biggest change of all has been the decreased redness associated with rosacea. I hated the color of my red skin and every morning I would immediately reach for foundation to conceal it.I think the red light is AMAZING at reducing the facial redness with which I was living.
I have also noticed that my facial lines and wrinkles around my eyes seem much softer. My skin feels and looks younger!While the blue light hasn't taken away all the pimples, it did keep the clusters on my nose and cheeks from reappearing. The blue beam is minimizing the bacteria on my face and limiting the life of those I do get. My outbreaks don't seem as severe, and are contained and shortlived.
I like the topicals a lot and don't find them too drying, considering my skin is quite sensitive. I have noticed that over the last three months my skin is less oily and my pores are smaller. August 19, 2009
Skinstore.com, the nation's leading e-commerce specialty retailer provding scientifically sound solutions for healing and maintaingin healthy skin, has added the skin care brand, ANSR, to its assortment of premium beauty products. ANSR is the next-generation skin care system that utilizes clinicall proven phototherapy that not only rejuvenates the skin by improving texture, fine linesand redness, but also fights blemishes.
Phototherapy consists of applying LED (light-emitting diode) light directly on the skin to improve and heal the skin. The ANSR beam emits LED light in high-intensity red and blue wavelengths. This type of therapy has proven effective in treating signs of aging, acne, psoriasis and eczema.“ANSR is a great addition to our skin care device department. It is also unique because it is multi purpose and rechargeable,” said Jeff Askenas, VP of Merchandising for SkinStore.
If your skin is in need of some repair, but you don't have the time or money to devote to treatments at the dermatologist's office (and really, who does these days?), then you may want to consider the ANSR: Skin Rejuvenation Kit, $195. The kit contains the ANSR: BEAM, one of the only hand-held devices on the market that offers both red and blue light therapy. What does this mean exactly?
Ask your dermatologist at your next appointment about LED light therapy and I’m sure you’ll get an ear full about its wonderful skin benefits. It’s currently being used to treat acne and to rejuvenate skin for a more youthful appearance. Blue light waves are used to help breakdown bacteria on the skin’s surface that can cause inflammation and breakouts. Red light waves help to stimulate collagen to create new, healthier cells and to get your skin looking even. I’ve been testing out ANSR: BEAM, a hand-held device that features both blue and red light therapy that can be done at home. I also have a friend who battles acne giving it a try too. It requires you schedule ten minutes a day to complete a treatment (which is not easy these days, I know!). The good news, it can be done anywhere (think lunch break). All you have to do is gently glide the device over your entire face and neck. The first five minutes you’ll receive a blue light treatment. Then it switches to red light therapy for the last five minutes. Could this be the skin miracle we have all been waiting for? Only time and patience will tell. My fingers are crossed.

The ANSR: BEAM is a small round device that emits a harmless but high-intensity LED blue and red light waves to fight acne, scarring and aging.
You can use the device on clean skin for a maximum of 20 minutes per day: 5 minutes of blue followed by 5 minutes of red each morning and evening. I just started testing the system this morning... READ MORE HERE.

New Product Brings Benefits of Clinical Phototherapy Directly to Millions of Acne Sufferers
ANSR: Acne CareTM Promises to be an Evolutionary Shift in At-Home Acne Treatment
PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Portland, Ore.-based Oregon Aesthetic Technologies (OAT) today announced the availability of ANSR: Acne Care, a next-generation acne treatment featuring clinically proven phototherapy and a powerful set of topical ingredients to fight acne and heal the skin.
ANSR: Acne Care promises to be an evolutionary shift in at-home skin care by utilizing the technology of phototherapy (ANSR: BEAMTM) and powerful patent-pending topicals (ANSR: PREP, DAY and NIGHT) to build a comprehensive acne skin care solution that addresses multiple causes and effects of acne – such as excess skin surface debris, oiliness, pore-clogging sebum, bacteria, inflammation, redness and scarring.
ANSR: will be advertised through television in markets around the country. ANSR: Acne Care is also available at www.ANSR.com.
About ANSR: Acne Care
OAT gathered a team of physicians, chemists and other skin care experts to apply the proven power of phototherapy to an easy-to-use, hand-held medical device that is accessible and affordable to all acne sufferers.
International research studies have demonstrated conclusively that acne-causing bacteria molecules absorb blue light waves, causing free radical damage to destroy the bacteria. Red light waves stimulate collagens to grow new cells, which help fade the redness, scars and pockmarks caused by acne.
ANSR: topicals complement the BEAM's phototherapy treatment while attacking specific causes of acne on their own. ANSR: PREP cleans and exfoliates the skin using salicylic acid. The DAY and NIGHT lotions fight acne by thinning skin oils (called sebum) using Aurazin™ – a patent-pending blend of natural minerals and botanicals – and a low dose of salicylic acid. These paraben-free topicals provide users with an advanced acne-fighting solution, complementing photo light therapy without using drying benzoyl peroxide or other harsh chemicals.
“Today’s options for acne sufferers are either remarkably outdated – such as benzoyl peroxide, which has been around since the 1930s – or expensive – like clinical phototherapy, which can cost thousands of dollars,” said OAT CEO John Ripper. “ANSR: Acne Care is a technological advancement in acne treatment that has already changed people’s lives who never thought they would be able to afford having clear skin.”
What Experts Say About ANSR: Acne Care
OAT’s board of advisors includes Dr. Neil Swanson, the Head of Dermatology for the award-winning Oregon Health and Sciences University (ranked as one of the top teaching institutions in the country).
"Dermatologists at leading research institutions have long touted the benefits of clinical phototherapy for treating acne," says Dr. Swanson. "ANSR: Acne Care offers acne sufferers an effective in-home solution that leverages the benefits of both red and blue light therapy and looks to be a significant improvement in acne treatment that's safe, without any side effects."
Dr. Debbie Miller, a dermatologist based in Portland, Ore., also believes in the power of ANSR: to treat and fight acne. "Finding a solution that really works to treat acne can be difficult and frustrating," says Dr. Miller. "ANSR: is unique because it's an acne treatment that capitalizes on the latest technological advances in phototherapy and complements it with specially formulated lotions. Together they kill acne-causing bacteria, thin pore-clogging sebum and reduce the redness in the areas affected by acne. ANSR: Acne Care appears to be a paradigm shift in the treatment of acne."
Real People, Real Results
Recent high school graduate Chelsea and 35-year-old Apryl have both successfully fought acne with ANSR: Acne Care. “Before ANSR:, I tried everything – creams, antibiotics, you name it. Anything my mom and I read about, I tried,” said Chelsea. “But nothing treated my acne and helped my skin look smoother or healthier like ANSR: did. I am honestly a new person.”
“Like most acne sufferers, before I found ANSR: I was desperate to try anything that would clear up my skin,” said Apryl. “Unfortunately, medications like Accutane come with the risk of severe side effects. I love how ANSR: not only treated my acne, but for the first time, my skin is clear, smooth and glowing.”
