"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.
