Baby Quasar red light therapy and Lightstim Wrinkles/Anti-Aging are probably the 2 most talked about red light therapy home devices right now.
So, which one works better? Which one requires less treatment time? Which one should you choose – The Baby Quasar or the Lightstim?
Here are the specifics on these 2 popular red light therapy home devices, to help you decide which one is a better buy:
Baby Quasar Plus vs. Lightstim
1. Light Bulbs – Baby Quasar has red & infrared light, amber and green light mode, 24 LEDs in total. Lightstim has Red & infrared light plus amber, 72 LEDs.
The more LEDs, the more powerful the device will be. The winner in this category is the Lightstim.
2. Treatment Time – Baby Quasar treatment head (3.8 sq. inches) is a little smaller than Lightstim’s treatment head (4.9 sq. inches), which means you’ll need more treatment time to cover your entire face, compared to the Lightstim.
Treatment time should be an important factor when you choose your red light therapy home device, because time is something most of us don’t have much of, and it may be difficult to “keep with the program” if treatment time is long.
By the way, if treatment time is critical for you – You should consider getting a large 2-panel device like the DPL Light Therapy System, which is made of 2 large panels that cover ALL of your face at the same time (and it doesn’t cost more than the BQ or Lightstim!)
3. Sturdiness – The Baby Quasar seems sturdier than the Lightstim, maybe that’s why they offer a longer warranty.
4. Timer – The Baby Quasar has an onboard timer making it easy to figure out how long to treat each area. The Lightstim doesn’t have one.
5. Generated Heat – The heat generated from the Lightstim is a bit more intense, which may make it difficult for some people with Rosacea (who flush easily with heat) to deal with. But both of them generate warm pleasant heat in my opinion.
6. Battery/Cord – Both devices are corded.
7. Warranty and Return Policy – Baby Quasar has a 5 year warranty, Lightstim has a 2 year warranty. BUT, Baby Quasar has 1 month return policy, while Lightstim offers 3 months.
I always recommend to buy from Amazon, because of its reliable return policy and outstanding customer service.
My Personal Results
I was skeptical, but I am not anymore. If you want red LED light therapy to work – Be patient, and be consistent.
I have to say that at the age of 40, I don’t expect to look 25, but both of these devices have helped me way more than topical treatments, and I have tried many.
As for the Lightstim, I liked the size of the head ( 2 3/8” in diameter) which made treatment time shorter.
I noticed that my skin just looked better and there was a change in the depth of the nasal labial fold and forehead lines.
Overall, the Baby Quasar is my favorite one because I could see MORE results in just a few weeks to skin tone and lines. It’s worth the longer treatment time and the higher price.
But this doesn’t mean that you’ll get the same results, for each person it works differently.
I would actually advise you to choose the Lightstim Wrinkles. Treatment time is shorter and it’s much less expensive than the BQ.
Also, you can try it for 3 whole months and easily return it and get a refund if it does not satisfy you.
I hope this head-to-head comparison of Lightstim vs. Baby Quasar has helped you figure out which device is best for you and saved you some precious time (we all need more of that…)
