With new inventions created daily in the beauty industry – it always amazes me when I see new products hit the shelves or online store fronts that help with things like anti-aging and wrinkles, acne scarring and overall appearance.  There are so many products out there with so many price points and designs, it can be a challenge to know which will work best for your skin.  Having worked in the medical industry – I have seen cosmetic surgery and laser treatment first hand and I am still blown away with how many technological items are now available to help combat the issues that required surgery at one time.  The Bright Therapy Softlaser Plus has been an interesting tool to try and I wanted to share it with my readers.  Is it something I got results from?  Read on to see…

Bright Therapy Softlaser Acne & Scar Removal

The Bright Therapy Softlaser Plus is said to be the No. 1 selling Light Therapy Softlaser in the world (information from the company).  This laser is ideal for treating acne, wrinkles and spider veins, age spots and much more.  With consistent use you should look years younger and have beautiful skin, a clear – radiant complexion and it’s easy to use in the privacy of your own home.  The unit retails for about $140 to $239 – more or less depending on where you purchase your unit.  You can find it for sale on the Bright Therapy website or via their Amazon store.

The unit features a 635nm Narrow Band, high power red laser light.  It is made with a medical grade stainless steel aperture cover, CPO Technology (continuous power output) Anti-dimming light and can cover a large treatment area as it creates a 11mm wide beam.  This unit is cordless and takes 2 AAA batteries (which are included with purchase) and a carrying case which makes it ideal for travel.  The unit is small and lightweight so it makes treating areas a breeze as you are not required to hold up a product to your face, etc. for long periods of time that will be too heavy to hold.

Laser or light therapy is something that tends to freak many people out.  This Bright Therapy Softlaser Plus does not cut or burn as surgical lasers may do and the unit does not hurt at all when applied to the skin.  It has a light that penetrates into the skin to stimulate cellular growth so there is no discomfort from the treatment regardless of how often you use it.  While applying the light to your skin, you may decide to have a continuous pulsing sensation or vibration or pulsing sensation which feel like a soft skin massage.  The Bright Therapy Softlaser Plus produces a true laser light that has a super wide beam.  It is the coherent and monochromatic laser light that stimulates skin cells to produce more ATP cell energy which is energized cells that in turn act like younger cells, producing more collagen, healing faster and fighting acne causing bacteria.

The Bright Therapy Softlaser Plus is effective for the following things:

  • helping to reverse the effects and signs of aging
  • reducing wrinkles and fine lines
  • stimulating collagen for help with skin tone
  • clearing acne and erasing blemishes and bruises
  • diminishing scars, stretch marks, cuts and burns
  • treating herpes and cold sores
  • helping to treat tennis elbow, tendonitis, arthritis, sinusitis / rhinitis
  • healing eczema, dermatitis, rosacea, burns, spider veins and more…

The wave length of power has been proven to be the most beneficial for skin rejuvenation.  The Bright Therapy Softlaser Plus uses a proprietary system that creates 11mm wide beam so that a large area can be covered.  And, instead of dimming when the batteries get low – the Softlaser will shut off automatically letting you know you need to replace the batteries.  Using this unit is so easy – simply press the button on the top and select a constant vibration or pulsating one and treat the areas on your skin you desire.  Make sure when treating places near the eyes that you tilt the laser away from your eyes and run the laser on your skin in a zig zag motion to cover the area you are treating.  As with any laser, do not stare into the beam, point at your eyes or at anyone else’s and treat this as you would laser tool.  Be careful and use as recommended and suggested.

Complete System Includes:
The Bright Therapy Softlaser Plus, Instructional DVD, User Manual, 2’AAA’ Batteries and Travel Case.
All Bright Therapy Softlaser Plus are covered by a 1 Year Warranty.

Bright Therapy Softlaser Acne & Scar Removal

So what are my thoughts on this product now that I have given you the very LONG low down on the product?  Well, first – let me say that it is so easy to use, you even get batteries with the product so it makes it quick to try it out of the box.  I like that because it allows you to try out the product immediately once you have read the directions.  It is easy to use, you have one button to control the whole unit.  Press the button once and it will turn it on with a continuous vibration, press the button again and you will get a soft pulsating vibration and press the button again and it will shut the unit off.  It does not hurt, burn or irritate my skin at all – major bonus.  For anyone with sensitive skin like I have, it doesn’t affect my skin in any way and feels like a soft massage on my face or body.

So does it work?  Well, I have used it on my face but didn’t notice any extreme results and I have been using it a month.  I have also been using it on my wrists to help with some pain with my bilateral carpal tunnel and while I have been getting some relief, again – nothing quite extreme.  Though, I’ll be honest, it has gotten my attention some since I notice I can type for a longer period of time without issue.  The thing that I have notice a difference in is my spider veins.  After holding 11 pounds worth of twin babies in my tummy a few years ago, I developed spider veins on my calves on the outside and they are not very nice looking.  Normally I ignore them but I figured I would try and treat those areas.  After just a month, I noticed that my spider veins are appearing to be a lot flatter, not so much 3D or sticking out and they are lighter.  Now – again, having worked in medical and I know Sclerotherapy can be painful as is laser treatment so if this helps to alleviate at least some of the issue – count me in.  The Bright Therapy Softlaser is painless in comparison to other treatments, so I will continue using it and try to share the results with you.

Oh – sorry, I bet you wanted to see those nasty spider veins?  Well, not today… not today! lol  Overall – I think with consistent use (I use mine 2-3 times a day when time permits) you can experience some form of results, even if only a little at a time.  With continued use and over time, I am excited to see how this will help.  My goal is to try this out on my Eczema flare ups to see if it works or on a break out here and there.  I’ll be sure to update and let you know how it does when I’m able to try it out for those purposes.

One quick note… make sure to not get serums, creams, etc. on the unit and if you do – a little alcohol wipe should help clean it up.  Use on dry skin and the unit is not waterproof so do not use in the shower.

So – have you heard of something like this before that is handheld and can be used in the comforts of your own home?  If you have, what are your thoughts, if you haven’t – do you think you would give it a try.  Also, have you tried it?  If so – what kind of results did you get?  You can learn more about this product or purchase it here.

I am a dog lover, true and true.  Don’t get me wrong – I don’t discriminate and love all animals in general, though dogs are and always have been my favorite.  I have always had large dogs so I was used to training big dogs.  Our Koa – an American Red Nose Pit bull died a few years ago and we have since added Ikaika to our family.  Ikaika is a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel and let me just say – it is a big difference training a little dog as it is a large one.  I have had to learn to be patient with a dog that is a little more maintenance than a pit bull and I found that some of my normal training worked while others did not.  Today I am going to share with you a few easy tips that will hopefully get your tiny dog trained and if not, at least it will give you some tips on how to enjoy your little companion.

5 Easy Tips To Training Your Dog

1.  Patience – Patience is key no matter what size your dog or animal is.  Any dog (or animal for that matter) will react according to your actions and demeanor.  Be calm and keep from being excited.  Take your time, like with children – everything is a learning process and this is the same with your dog.

2.  Consistency is Key – Be consistent with what you do.  If you tell your dog to eat his food outside, keep his feeding done outside (just as an example).  Dogs have a short attention span (not all of them, but many do) so by keeping things a constant and doing everything the same – it keeps your dog from feeling confused and therefore a routine will develop.

3.  Let your dog know what they are doing wrong – this is known as replacement therapy.  This is quite easy when you start doing it.  By being firm and letting your dog know that something is not right, your dog will learn.  I.e. Telling your dog “no” when it is doing something wrong like chewing on a shoe.  Be consistent and firmly tell your dog no to let them know that what they are doing is wrong and then take the item away. Use a voice that is firm, but do not yell.

4.  Training tools can be helpful – We don’t use it often, but a dog training collar with a remote control comes in handy when you are not in the direct vicinity of your dog to tell them to stop something without yelling at them.  I recommend a dog training collar like Cujo Controls.  It comes with 8 levels of training with a fully adjustable collar.  It can be used on dogs of all sizes and is one of the easiest tools to use.  Do not confuse this tool with punishing your animal.  While it does offer a shock level, we use it for vibration, which is light and soft enough to have the dog notice that he gets a pulsation when he does something he is not to be doing.  It then becomes a reminder that what he is about to do, he should not be doing.  It comes with a wireless remote control and is water resistant.  The Anti-Bark collar has a range of up to 800M and you can train 2 dogs at the same time.  This unit is meant to accelerate obedience training, prevent unwanted behavior like barking and chewing and helps you with various training.  If you don’t like the pulsation mode or vibrating mode, you also have a sound mode that allows you control with sound.  This product is safe, humane and an effective tool when used properly and not abused.  While many will say it is not something they want to use to train their dog, it has been helpful in training ours and Ikaika’s squeaky bark at 4am is not an issue any longer for us or our neighbors.  Again – we use the pulsations that are light vibrations (similar to that of a vibrating ringer on a cell phone) that will not hurt or injure our fur baby.  We have tested it on ourselves and it actually tickles but vibrates enough to get your dogs attention.  That is the setting we chose for our little dog, there are eight settings available for you to choose from.

5 Easy Tips To Training Your Dog

5.  Love – last but not least, animals need a lot of love and compassion.  They are like children and need affection and they are affectionate creatures.  It doesn’t matter the breed (I know that first hand) because each animal will love as their owner loves.  Just as we teach our children, we teach our fur babies to love by loving them.

Cujo Dog Collars love Rescue Dogs.  A portion of your purchase helps support dog rescues across the U.S.  This post is for informational purposes only and was brought to you in collaboration with Cujo Control.  Remember – treat your animals as you would want to be treated, love them and show them compassion and you will have a companion for life.  While I do offer tips for training your dog, I am not a certified trainer or veterinarian and these tips come from personal experience.  Please check with your vet prior to any training regimen for your furry friend.
